“50 Words to Your Dreams”…Leadership


The word Leadership broken down really is lead a ship. What ship? Your ship, your partner ship, your relation ship, your friend ships any and all type of ships. Lead your own ship first before trying to lead other people’s ships. Leadership can be displayed in the workplace, in the family, amongst friends and throughout the community. If you cannot be a self-leader and lead your own life you won’t be able to lead others successfully. Understand that there is a massive difference between managing people and leading people. Most managers think of themselves as leaders, while most leaders don’t see themselves as managers.


Once you become a leader in your own life, you will develop naturally the skills and traits to start leading others without being consciously aware of it. Leadership is a sign that your self-growth has outwardly affected other people in a positive way. If your actions and words inspire others to dream more, to become more, to learn more you are a leader. Lead with no title, lead without being told to lead, lead when no one is looking and lead with no incentive. Become the leader that you would want to be led by in your own life and work life.




What if you started to take your dreams seriously and went to war on your personal dreams. You called yourself out and declared war on your dreams. Rallied yourself, put a war plan together and became the war general of your life. You put your dreams on the table and developed a strategy of war for success or death on your dream with a final deadline of completion. What would happen if you became a general instead of a solider? What would happen if you treated your dream as a war mission and took a life or death approach to the successfully completion of that mission. Your energy would change, your thinking would change, your actions would change, your motivation would sky rocket, your priorities would shift. Why not declare war on your dreams and get them out of your head into the reality of life. Get off your comfortable behind of mediocrity and lead yourself into an internal battle of success. Lose sleep if you have too, work like your life depends on it because it does, focus like you are defusing a ticking time bomb, do whatever you need to do to pull yourself across the goal line and get the mission complete. Become a war general and be ruthless with making your dreams a reality and be the leader of your own life.
