Empowerment Tips
 
How To Be a Great Leader
 
In today's society, people are looking for people to lead. They are looking for people who are willing to step up and be an example of how to live. The world is dying for people that have the courage to lead themselves so they can impact the world around them. 
 
The following are some ways that you can become a leader that inspires others to action: 
 
Get Clear
Clarity = Power. All great leaders get clear about what they want. There is nothing more compelling than someone who knows exactly what they want. Clarity creates confidence, and confidence gives people certainty you can lead them. 
 
Have a Vision
For people to buy into who you are and what you're about, you need to give them insight on what you're vision is. A vision inspires and attracts people to be a part of something bigger than themselves.
 
Authenticity
People are looking for leaders who are comfortable showing who they are. Stepping into who you are at your core has tremendous power. Be open, be vulnerable, and be fully transparent with the world around you. 
 
Confidence
Confidence gives people certainty that you will take their ideas and make the right decision. People are naturally drawn to someone who is confident because it's contagious - It inspires them to bring out more confidence in themselves.
 
Listen
Take time to listen to the thoughts, feelings, and ideas of the group. A great leader is someone who takes everyones point of view into consideration and makes everyone feel like they are a part of the vision. 
 
When you implement these tools, you will find that stepping in as the leader of a group or a team will come naturally. The world needs people that are willing to take the bold step into the role of leadership. The world is waiting for you to step up and create an impact - it's time to lead.

“If you have an excuse, don't use it: A common reason why people fail in relationships, work, and life-is that they have a good excuse. Making excuses has an effect similar to taking drugs like cocaine: The more a person uses excuses, the stronger the habit becomes, and the weaker the person becomes. Excuses are a way out but not a way forward.
 
If a person who makes a mistake can tell the truth, instead of making an excuse he/she will grow stronger. He/she may also discover the extraordinary power of making a sincere apology.  When you blame others, you suffer:  If you are running late for a meeting, do you blame traffic or do you confess you started out ten minutes late?”
