Leadership Quality - Barack Obama qualities
Emerging leaders - Barack Obama.
It was the question a lot of people were asking whether he would be able to achieve his ambitious goals. It seems he sets new challenges every time when he achieves new heights. This quality of his setting new and bigger challenges took him to the post of American President.
I noticed something special in Barack Obama. One thing that I noticed is that he is not afraid to surrounded by other brilliant people from whom he gets advice. He learns new things from them. He goes to meetings with an open heart. He is not stuck up with ego. He is willing to learn new things. He is willing to listen. He is not like many of us. We go to meetings with a made up mind and will not let others crush our ego. Maybe because of this ego problem, we are not open or willing to change and not growing.
When he looked at his background, a half white, half black, raised by his maternal grandparents since he was 10, who never knew his father, achieved the greatest hight a man can achieve. What about me and you? Many of us may say "it's luck" that he reached that position. It is not luck or surroundings or genetics or color etc. etc. but he is taking every day focused actions with a calculated risk in his life. He has gone through the steps of learning, growing, teaching, writing, earning and gaining trust and support etc. But not afraid of the challenge. He was a seeker of challenges. Set his mind on his Goal. He grew up to a leader who comes out to address the biggest problems of mankind.
We need hundreds of leaders who are not afraid to rise up not for their own personal gain but to address the problems of common people. It will bring fame and money. It adds responsibility.
We never know what is tomorrow? If you know the secret of these successful people, you might as well go after them with a determination to accomplish many things that you want to achieve. There is no fear, but learning, growing and succeeding. Every day you wake up with a determination to grow and succeed.
Many times there will be criticism, fall, defeat, setbacks etc. may come in your life. You may make mistakes. Do not allow them to hold you back. Keep growing. Wherever you are, whatever you are doing, do it with a determination to succeed. You may be a worker, a mother, a teacher, a preacher, a housewife, an officer, a trainer, a teacher, or a hubber, whichever is your profession, do your work with a determination to succeed. No one can stop you from doing your best. Only you can stop you from succeeding. When bad things come just do what you need to do and keep going forward. Sounds good and possible for others but impossible for you? Let me tell you it is possible with you. Just you need to have that mindset.
