Leadership means responsibility. Leading is a full-time affair. If you are in a position to lead, it means you have accepted sacrificing your comfort, liking, disliking, rest, and leisure. Whether inside the drawing-room enjoying family time or patting golf over the green, at the dinner table or the lavatory, the leader’s brain always remains committed. His every second is spent as the price to make better decisions and to buy men’s loyalty. Hence, a leader needs to be calm, emotionally stable, and free from all kinds of peripheral engagements. He needs to remain persistently focused on the leadership goals so that nothing may take away his attention as a priority.
Leading is a passion, and a leader has to admit all discomforts during the leadership journey wilfully. A leader sacrifices his needs, amenities, and time for the well-being of his men. He directs all his attention to the betterment of his people.
Leading means you are at the center point of all attention of your men. People do not look at the tail of a marathon race, but they focus on every step of someone who is leading. People always expect a very high standard from their leaders. So, it would be best if you remain fully committed to winning your men’s expectations. Leading is always a tiring job; it is all about an ongoing affair of solving problems. Leadership is the journey of contests and winning challenges that need the steadfast dedication of a leader each day and every occasion.
Human beings are weak at the individual level. They are even feebler than small and funny creatures like a mosquito or a fly, but the ability to make all-out connections and cooperation have made humans the best on the planet. Leadership needs to maximize the potential of each human connection and relationship. A leader must build more dynamic and stable relations with people to enhance cooperation. This difficult task demands a leader’s full attention, creativity, dedication, and all-out effort. Indeed, leading is an arduous task but only possible by your utmost commitment and full-time concentration.
Take your leadership role as a passion in life. Commit yourself to the cause of your men’s well-being. Accept leadership as a service of 24/7, the way a father remains committed to the well-being of his family.
