Different leaders have different qualities, strengths, skills and challenges. And the true challenge of being a leader is to be strong but still be thoughtful of others. 

The transition to becoming a ringleader, a lead, is rough, nobody tells you how you should act or what you should do. You are starting to feel more responsibility as before and you start to hold yourself accountable. So, becoming one is a constant journey of learning and self-development. 

But there is still a side to being the lead nobody tells you about, and there are things nobody wants to talk about. I’m here to tell you the real side of being a leader and what it really means. 

Patience is important to become a leader

Being a leader is ever so challenging, and patience is often an overlooked leadership skill. Whilst success and respect is not gained overnight, a true leader must be patient. As being only result-oriented is not enough. 

A true ringleader, works hard, understands when they are falling short. Apart from this, a lead has empathy, a purpose in life and a high tolerance when things go wrong. Having enough patience can help you be more efficient in how you work and go about your dreams. 

Your journey is a rollercoaster 

Being a leader is not a straight road. There are ups and downs, there will be sleepless nights. But the satisfaction when everything goes according to your plan is amazing. And it’s a reason not everyone is suited to be a leader, as the struggles of always being confident that it will work out is not for everyone. 

You need to have a clear purpose

You need to be clear about what you want in life. Set your intentions clear, make an action plan towards your dreams. Having a clear purpose is what will keep you going and you’d start to have the stability in what you want. 

Being a leader is a mindset

As a leader, it’s important to have self-awareness. You need to train your mind to be aligned with your values and your purpose. Being a leader is not a position at a job. By being a leader you will have the opportunity to influence other people. To be a great leader you always need to have that need of learning and growing. 

Confidence is key

Also, you need to have confidence. It’s a fine line between actually feeling confident in yourself and being arrogant. A leader always has the confidence to tackle new challenges. And has the confidence that no matter what, they will succeed. Join my 7-day confidence challenge to reveal the most confident you: https://app.open.ifuiwill.com/share/1949786398
