Every human on earth is a leader. A leader in simple words means an individual who takes charge and convinces others to follow in order to achieve a goal. Being a leader doesn’t necessarily mean you have massive followers, it’s about you – “leading yourself” before attempting to lead others. To become an effective leader in life, you need to take charge of your life because it’s all about who you are; inspire and believe in yourself. Leading yourself means being responsible for every decisions and actions you take as a human, doing the right things at the right time, self-development.
As a leader, it is very important to know that you are the chief servant of whatever group you lead, by performing major duties of the group and setting a good example for your followers. Create a strategic plan to clarify specify and support your dreams. Your plans will be the flowchart and algorithm to achieving your goals efficiently.
Having patience is very vital in playing the role of a leader. Leaders need to remember that the point of leading is not to cross the finish line first but to take people across the finish line with you. Reducing your pace to that of your followers will make life easier for you all.
Listening to your followers ideas and accepting you are wrong at some point makes you a good leader and thus creates an atmosphere of comfort, equity and equality amongst you and your followers, letting them share their views on opinions. You should also inspire and have good communications with your followers.
Nothing so conclusively proves a man’s ability to lead others as what he does to lead himself daily. Most people are unaware of the disciplines their leaders practice or the sacrifices they make outside of the spotlight.  However, they don’t do it for recognition;  they do it for results.  What leaders do day-to-day always pays off in the long run.  Success or failure isn’t an event, but a process.
The bottom line is that the smallest crowd you will ever lead is you—but it’s the most important one.  If you do that well, then you will earn the right to lead even bigger crowds.
