It seems like every week I see a link titled “5 Top Traits Every Leader Has” or something along those lines. Correct me if I’m wrong, but I thought the whole thing about being a leader was doing something that most people don’t. Now it’s natural for other leaders to follow in the foot steps of previous leaders, but to me, being a true leader is about being innovative, fresh, ambitious, challenging, and most importantly, being yourself! Who are they to tell you how YOU will be a leader? Sometimes these posts and articles trending about ambition and leadership can be demotivating to people that may not possess ALL of the “best qualities” of other leaders. YOU decide who, what, when, where, why, and above all HOW you will be a leader. Don’t let anyone else tell you what’s appropriate. After all, I’m sure nobody stopped them from doing the same.
