Do you have any followers? If you do, you might not even realize it but you are indeed already a leader.
Most people don’t see themselves becoming a leader. They simply can’t imagine themselves ever becoming one.
Anyone can be a leader but the first thing a potential leader needs to do is to step up. A leader is proactive, not reactive. This proves that a true leader is one who’ll voluntarily take up the responsibility to lead rather than wait for others to give him the permission to do so. Leaders, unlike most people, don’t wait for permission.
True leaders are selfless. They understand that the true essence of leadership is in serving others. They are clear about what they’re going to have to sacrifice in order to make everyone better and achieve the common goal.
A leader is someone who’ll say, “winning shot or losing shot, just give me the damn ball.”
