How to Become A Leader in All Aspects of Life

Have you ever wished to lead a group of people someday? Perhaps, you struggle in your ways of teaching your siblings as the eldest child, or you work on leading yourself to become better? The need to lead will direct you to these practical tips on becoming a leader.

Available dictionaries commonly define leadership as the opposite of being a member, where one is considered the role model or the person in a higher position in the hierarchy. Most people often overlook the idea that leadership is not just present in the workplace or in school. It is everywhere, whatever aspect of your life. Unlike what author Simon Sinek says that “The greatest contribution of a leader is to make others leader,” the first step to becoming a leader is to firstly convince yourself that you can lead yourself to be better in the things you wish to do.

  1. Lead for, of, and by yourself.
    When you are convinced that you can carry yourself well no matter how challenging your current situation is, you owe others the kind of leader you will become when you begin leading them. You cannot lead others if you only consider yourself a member against your doubts and low self-esteem. Instill a leader’s mindset not to impress anyone but yourself. When you lead for yourself, you harvest good results such as added confidence in your life decisions and how you treat others. Here, you will learn self-discipline.

  2. Listen more and speak less.
    When you listen to yourself and others, you give yourself more energy to initiate rather than communicate without action. While communication is essential, providing yourself the avenue to listen around you and similarly to other people will help you become a leader who listens before weighing things. Speaking more without listening will only result in an action that will compromise your chance to have a positive impact on yourself and others.

  3. Be teachable in everything that you do.
    Although you would already consider yourself an expert, you still have much to learn. You are not always right. When you tell yourself that you are incapable, you may opt to teach yourself the other way around. When you tell others that you already know everything, you deny yourself a chance to see things through different lenses.

These tips to be an effective leader in every aspect of your life will help you have a more empowered relationship with yourself and others.
