Never allow your first attempt discourage you if things don’t work out. Success is a process and not an event. Success is a process and every attempt should add up to your result. The reason why success is not an event is simply because the day of your breakthrough is when you finally hit your target and that makes all your actions of little steps count. So if you are not yet in the address you desire, keep moving until you get there.
“There is no one giant step that does it. It’s a lot of little steps.” – Peter A. Cohen
Don’t just try to survive but live to fulfill purpose. Surviving is just to get by but fulfilling purpose is making an impression. Only the strong at heart can go through tough times and prevail over difficulty of life. To conquer over mockery, persecution, attacks, betrayal and all odds, you must be strong. You must be spiritually, mentally and physically strong to be successful in what you were ordained to do on earth. To make a difference involves strong decisions and actions but to be common does require nothing. You must act differently and creatively to dominate your field. Ordinary doesn’t require much but extraordinary requires ‘extra’, a plus, I mean something extra above others. Create that difference.
“It takes a strong fish to swim against the current. Even a dead one can float with it.” – John Crowe
Only the strong are courageous to go through difficult season.
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.
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.
