Your Needed Ladder To Success

Your Needed Ladder To Success

“There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work, and learning from failure.” ~ Colin Powell~

Have you been looking for secrets to success? Before you travel far, let me give you this piece of advice, make use of these three points and see what happens to your life as you make them steps on your ladder to success: 1. Preparation 2. Hard work 3. Learning from your failure

Life comes with opportunities and God uses such to propel people to greatness but when an opportunity comes and you are not prepared, you miss the opportunity and when you are prepared, you grab it. But without hard work you can’t go far and it gets worse when you are not a learner who consistently learns from failure in order not to repeat the circle and consistently learns from success in order to repeat the circle.
The only secret is to prepare yourself for what you desire, work hard at it and never stop learning. This is your needed ladder to success. As you climb on the step of preparation with hard work and you move up with constant learning and taking required actions, you will certainly reach your goals in life.

Put your heart, mind and soul into even your smallest acts. This is the secret of success.~SwamiSivananda~

Success is the ability to go from one failure to another with no loss of enthusiasm.~Sir Winston Churchill~

I celebrate you.

What Only Leaders Can Do

What Only Leaders Can Do

Hello great people, It’s a new week and I will like to share with you some valuable tips about leadership success. These tips have helped me as a leader and I hope they will be helpful to you as well.

The unique quality that all leaders have in common is that they have a clear and exciting vision for the future. This is something that only the leader can do.
Only the leader can think about the future and plan for the future each day. The followers or subordinates won’t do this for the leader, therefore, the leader must be proactive and develop a clear vision.

Develop A Clear Vision

An Excellent leader will do the following:
I. Take the time to think through and develop a clear picture of where they want the organization to be in one, three, five and ten years.
II. Communicate this vision in such a way that others “buy in” and eventually see the vision as belonging to them.

Inspire People

It is the vision of the future possibilities, of what can be, that arouses emotion and inspires people to give of their best. The most powerful vision is always qualitative, aimed at and described in terms of values and mission rather than quantitative, described in terms of money.

Of course, money is important, but the decision and commitment to “be the best in the business” is far more exciting.

To encourage others, to instill confidence in them, to help them to perform at their best requires first of all that you lead by example.

Be A Great Team Player

A study at Stanford Business School reveals two important qualities required for great success in leadership. The first is the ability to put together a team and function as a good team player. Since all work is
ultimately done by teams, and the managers’ output is the output of the team, the ability to select team members, set objectives, delegate responsibility and finally, get the job done, was central to success in management.

Keep Your Cool

The ability to function well under pressure especially in a crisis is key to the promotion of any leader and keeping your cool in a crisis means to practice patience and self-control under difficult or disappointing circumstances.

Remind Yourself That Everyone Is Watching

Critical moments under fire reveals the character and quality of a leader. These are moments when everyone is watching, observing and privately taking notes. As Rudyard Kipling once said, “If you can keep your head when all around you are losing theirs and blaming it on you, then the world is yours and all that’s in it”.

Your responsibility as a leader is to have a clear vision of where you want to go and then to keep your cool when things go wrong, as they surely will.

I celebrate you.
