What have you learnt from your experiences and achievements?
Diligence and zeal are paramount for triumph. The journey to bring fruition something great is an arduous one and like a climb in which your patience is tested and your struggle pays off. Every challenge is an opportunity for us to not only prove ourselves but also improve ourselves and all challenges should be taken head on and with an open mind and an optimistic approach. There will be many hindrances and it is our objective to pave our way through them. While working with a team there can be numerous differences between the thought processes of people. If you can’t control people, then control your reaction to them. If you can’t control a situation then prepare for it. Video games are a great analogy for life. You go through levels, get thrown off by obstacles, and face several enemies. The way to success has no elevators there are only stairs.
What is a leader and how did you concur to the definition?
Many situations in life require us to climb an invisible ladder, and it’s not usually an easy climb. You have to earn each rung. Leaders are those people who help themselves and others to do the right things. They set direction, build an inspiring vision and create something new. Leadership is about mapping out where you need to go to “win” as a team or an organization; and it is dynamic, exciting, and inspiring. Yet, while leaders set the direction, they must also use management skills to guide their people to the right destination, in a smooth and efficient way.
Character of a leader is an amalgam of certain traits, values and virtues. Traits like open mindedness; values such as righteousness, loyalty and honesty, virtues such as courage, discipline and accountability. A good leader should accept responsibility for his actions and his decisions, as rightly said by Arnold H Glasgow, “A good leader takes a little more than his share of the blame; a little less than his share of the credit.” But present times paint a grim picture, where leaders breed an atmosphere of hate and violence and leadership is pursued for self-aggrandizement and monetary gains.
