Do the things that make you want to get up early in the morning. Your passion has to be something you would work exceptionally hard for. So what do you do, if there is nothing you feel that engaged about?
Comment 5 Share Tweet Share print email Leadership has got a bad press in so many circles. Maybe that is because of the many bad examples we come across, especially in the world of politics. I don't think there is much difference with this sentiment in the West.
Maybe also because it sounds so grandiose and pompous - me a leader? It sounds so arrogant and self-promoting to go around talking of yourself as a leader. And yet I would challenge you that leadership, in its most fundamental sense, is crucial to whatever we seek to do and achieve, be that on a personal micro level or a macro level.
If we think of leadership fundamentally as being about influence, then we can extend that across to how do I influence and lead myself and how do I lead and influence others. It literally becomes an extension, using that paradigm, of the two greatest commandments - loving God and loving my neighbour.
How do I influence and lead myself to love God with all my heart, mind, soul and strength and how do I influence and lead myself to love my neighbour as myself?
So in that sense leadership is primarily about me growing and developing as a human being. Physical growth is automatic, but growing in character and capabilities leadership qualities has to be intentional.
So why am I passionate about leadership? It has been a dawning realisation over the years how to create something of lasting value it is essential to draw in and involve others. I first lead myself to change and then I draw in others to the journey.
I love the following quotes by leadership consultant, Steve Radcliffe: In other words we all influence one another, whether we recognise it or not.
So seeing yourself as a leader has the potential to make a huge positive difference in your own life and the lives of those around you.
What do you think? How do you view leadership?
If we’re not winning I am pissed off. I am passionate about winning. I signed up to win. I work extremely hard, put in 20 hours a day of my life and my body, away from my family, to win. And when we don’t I am pissed off. I take this seriously. A lot of time goes into this. A lot of hard work and effort. Explain why you are passionate. Along with explaining how you follow through with your passion in your daily life, also give a brief explanation as to why you love your particular passion. Perhaps you love running because it gives you a chance to unwind, or it helps you think more creatively. My greatest passion now is my writing and I am often in awe of just how it has taken over my being. In my experience, passionate people reach a level where there is no discipline or habit necessary to get where they are going there is simply what needs to be done, and they know they will do it.

Let me tell you about my family. I have 5 sisters and a brother.
And I am a twin. We have a large family that is full on fun. I currently have my aunt and 3 of my cousins living just down the street from me and my mom and 3 siblings live just an hour away. We are very tight knit and we spend a lot.
