Yesterday I had some guests. First three school teachers who teach in the same school where my mother does. Almost everyone of them asked me how they can better grow their children and make them like Me. 😉 Also after they left, I had another visitor, a young guy who was going to get admission in college for grades, he was also seeking for someone who can guide him in a way or two.
Though I believe I’m not yet that great teacher, which I want to be, but I realized some truth about leadership.
A leader is the person who:
is not a guru, he is a normal guy who’s good at somethings and bad at many things.
make use of what he is good at.
leads the change, in other word who is always the first one to stand for something usually when no one believes in.
gets fail and then try again and again.
These are indeed great points, but to even better understanding how the process of leadership starts, we look into another angle. When Martin L. King, or Mandela stood for their rights, they were not the best black persons on earth.
There must be black guys in their community who were wiser, healthier, better communicator. But the thing is everyone was afraid to stand for that.
Mandela did not wait of any genius to start the journey of freedom, he did it.
Dear reader, We are Seeking for Leaders, Not Ideals, so don’t worry if you’re not good at something, you can lead your family, community, world. Come! Lead us!
Yes I just took first step in 23rd year of my life. This year is gonna be the most important phase of my life.
I especially love having all of you on this journey, through blogging, social media and phone calls and yes in person. I’m looking forward to execute number of projects in business and of my life.
I love each and everyone of you, thank you very much for being with. In case if you want to give me a birthday gift, it is very easy, just take 3 minutes and make me happy, click here for 3 min procedure. 😀
Great people like Nelson Mendela, Gandhi or Martin Luther King. They all shared a common thing, the story. They story of the challenges they faced, of the bold steps they took, of believing in themselves.
Every successful person or business is based on the stories and their fans remember them by investigating and talking more and more about their stories. This is way Apple, Facebook or IKEA has many fans, and those fans are continuously sharing the story of their beginning and all up and downs.
You see not every person or business has a story. This is because only bold steps make a great story a story worth sharing and remembering. Even if someone wants to give a great TED Talk, he shares his story.
Watch this talk by Neil Pasricha, where he shares his story and how he started one of Web’s most respected blogs 1000AwesomeThings.com
Now you got it clearly, right? You can not play your full shot unless you create a story. And as we saw earlier in the video, story means taking bold steps and do something wonderful. Which at first might seem very small.
Have you started working on building your story? You must! Please share your story with us, please. If you feel you haven’t one yet, just share what you’re up to, no matter how little it is, this might be start of another great story. Wish you all the best for your story my dear friend. See you in comments.
Hi friends, today I’m gonna share a little story with you guys.
In spring 2008 I got really sick and I had to stay at my home for three months. As you might know my mother is a school teacher, so she used to go to her school and I stayed at home.
One noon, when I was alone at home, I thought to do something. I took a good bath, wore my favorite suit and polished shoes. In short I was looking sick great. 😉
The same day my mother returned back from school along her some school fellows. Who came to see me, when they people saw me, they said to my mother, “You told Waqas was sick but he looks fantastic.” My mother and all her friends were really laughing.
It taught me something seemed simple but really effective. On a common tired day if you want to make your parents happy, dress up well. Everyone will feel WOW!
Folks, I missed you alot in last three days as I couldn’t ship what I wrote offline. So we are getting back with some really cool stuff to share.
Today, everyone of us shall share a very special photo of himself. So let it start with me.
This is my favorite photo of me, that was March 1989 when I was of 14 months. I burnt my feet in a stove where some girls were frying potato in the ash. And this picture was taken in a part at school where my mother teaches. 😉 Yes I was that fat baby & I have had good health till I left my home for studies. I love this picture for no reason, I don’t need any.
So friends, now your turn, share away any memorable photo of yours with us all here. Can’t wait to see you in special moment of your life.
PS. Don’t know how to share photos online? Use Flickr / Facebook to share online and share the photo link in comments.
