Most of the people desire to be the leader, but they don’t know it takes gigantic self-determinism, time and vision to become one. When we start working as an employee, we kind of find safety in that place, and we are grateful we are there. We probably ask ourselves “What if, I haven’t even had this place, because not all can make it until here?” and they stop. Their vision is cemented.
They no longer have the vision to be the leader and have followers behind them. The most common mistake is finding safety and being satisfied with who you are. Michelangelo said: “I am still learning.” Yeah, that Italian genius said that. Don’t tell me you stopped learning and doing more. I’m not saying that’s bad, but please don’t get satisfied with minor success.
Once upon a time you were a leader in your mind. Somewhere on the path of becoming the leader you changed your mind. You thought that when you finish your education, the desk and the big chair are waiting for you, and you will command to an enormous group of people in some corporation. That’s not happening, but also, it’s not hard to be a leader; it just needs lots of dedication.
If you think it’s hard, it will be, but if you have any type of vision what you want to become, and if it’s strong enough, I assure you there is no way it’s not going to happen, and it will be a piece of cake!
On the first obstacle you see, you think this is it, I need to stop here and get my salary every month and live life on the lower level, for the rest of my life. If you think this is right, I assure you it isn’t.
As we were kids, we used to see ourselves as creators. We used to put the toys in position, making war between them. The good guy always wins, and the bad guy who usually made frauds and cheated, loses. Because so many people didn’t realize how life should be lived, they are making it hard for the ones who do realize. If we don’t fall on these obstacles, you will succeed.
If you’ve seen the movie “Catch me if you can,” you would know this story; if you don’t I assure you should. The story goes: “Two little mice fell into a bucket of cream. The first mouse quickly gave up and drowned. The second mouse, wouldn’t quit. He struggled so hard that eventually he churned that cream into butter and crawled out.”
Gentlemen, as of this moment, I am that second mouse.” This is very simple. Life is a bucket of cream. If you don’t crawl or take some action to elevate your being, you will drown with the poor minded and “safe people”. To me, there is nothing sadder than un-lived life.
Now you choose what you want to become, the first or the second mouse?
