Leadership. Yes, you heard it right. What comes first in your mind when you hear
this word? Yes, of course, an action of leading, the one who is in incharge,
management of a group or society or organization is leading or leadership. Everyone
must have been a leader once, twice or always in your life. It doesn’t matter if it was
a small group or a big organization. What matters here is you have been getting a
chance to be a leader. I personally think that people can lead groups or society in
their own different ways.
I love to be a leader. It’s just like being a boss of a group of people. No! Bossing
people does not mean you are a leader. The meaning of leadership is setting and
achieving goals, tackling the competition and solving problems decisively and
quickly. If anyone says, on your face, that you aren’t a good leader, you ought not to
give up. You are going to improve your qualities.
I have thrice in my life been a leader. Once of 5, second of 7 and the last time of 15
pupils in a group. I am still trying to improve leadership qualities. The first time when
I was a leader in my learning program, my qualities were perfect for grade one. I was
pleasant, polite, punctual as well as strict. We succeeded with our cooperation. I
thought that I was perfect but I was wrong.
The second time I got selected for being a leader I had an awful experience. It was
like from where I got selected. I couldn’t tackle the problems. I was sad. The
qualities of leadership seemed childish to me. I accidently overheard one of the
members from my group telling another member that he is unlucky to be in this
group. But still I didn’t give up.
The third time I became a successful leader. It was very great. I had successfully
improved myself. I understood the meaning of leadership. I thought that I was
perfect again. I could solve problems, I could overcome the mistakes. If I did, I
would be able to tackle the competition. The first time I understood what
leadership is. I did it.
Never give up working on your unique qualities. Not even if you are upset with
yourself. You are never perfect but try your best.
