1st INGREDIENT REQUIRED TO BECOME A LEADER
BY SHIREEN NAQVI
To become a leader you need to have many qualities and those qualities are already available within you. First of all these are free and have no limit or quota to it, that if use a particular quality today and then you cannot use it for the rest of your life. Yes, but there is one condition that to get something first you need to give something and that you need to learn.
The first ingredient that a leader must have is called INTEGRITY, in other words it also mean HONESTY. Without integrity leave aside leader you will not even be called a human being but an animal. What we say and promise, we must do it or what we preach we must also practice.
You must not be proud that you are an honest person because this is the first requirement to be able to be called a human being. Where all can you show your integrity? For e.g. if you have received an invitation to reach at a wedding at 9PM then be punctual and reach at the stipulated time.
If you make a promise that is first for you and if you break a promise that will also first affect you and you will not feel good
within yourself. The bigger the promise you break the more bad you will feel within and will be ashamed, this can also be called DIGNITY or SELF RESPECT. You will be able to trust the other person as much as you trust your own self, if you have Rs20/- in your pocket then you cannot spend Rs200/- The first requirement is to always fulfill your promises which you first make with yourself and then with others.
If you want to lose weight and keep an alarm to wake up at 6am in the morning and then switch it off and go to sleep then again you are breaking your promise and the guilt of breaking your promises time and again wouldn’t leave you. You first have to make a promise to yourself and decide what do you want out of life., it is from here that leadership starts.
