Confidence And Leadership
Being a role model can be quite painful at times. It is not easy to strive for perfection on a daily basis. It requires consistency and determination which are difficult to uphold; especially when experiencing stress, pain and worry. But the first step is to change your mindset and strive for being a role model.
You must be able to demonstrate confidence and leadership. Confidence is a feeling of self-assurance arising from one’s appreciation of one’s own abilities or qualities. People are attracted to confidence; it spills over into the category of leadership. Leadership is the action of leading a group of people or an organization.
Being a leader requires trust; who is going to listen to you if your words and actions are deceitful? Being trustworthy requires earning the confidence of those around you. You must be able to tell and show people that you stand by honest principles which they can respect and adopt into their lives.
Excellent communication is key to being a role model. You must be able to speak fluently, make great eye contact, be easily understandable and pick your words wisely and effectively; having a versatile vocabulary can help a lot. Your delivery must also be attractive: an understandable and easily relatable rate, rhythm and tone are a must.
Being respectful of others is a given. Even if annoying people surround you on a daily basis, you must brush them off and continue to demonstrate a respectful attitude towards them; their insecurities should not affect your position as a role model. And do not forget to respect yourself; the process always starts within.
Be humble and willing to admit mistakes. Nobody wants to be around someone who blames others for his or her mistakes. Admitting mistakes demonstrates confidence, courage, responsibility, honesty and a drive to learn more! Go about it by being humble and you become very close to capturing the hearts of those around you.
