Are you a leader? How do you define a leader?
- A leader is an inspiration.
- A leader is honest to themselves and others: Make yourself an honest man, and then you may be sure there is one less rascal in the world. ~Thomas Carlyle
- A leader is someone that shows the way.
- A leader makes the best out of the worse: What were the worst things you have gone through? How do these events turn you into a leader… if you let them?
- A leader focuses on the good in life.
- A leader contributes and gives from the heart trusting that whatever they give comes back to them tenfold.
- A leader trusts themselves and is courageous in times of crisis: Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgment that something else is more important than fear. ~Ambrose Redmoon
- A leader seeks to understand before they try to influence someone.
- A leader refrains from judgment: It took me a long time not to judge myself through someone else’s eyes. ~Sally Field
- A leader is open to learning and expanding their horizon.
- A leader takes action: Trust only movement. Life happens at the level of events, not of words. Trust movement. ~Alfred Adler
- A leader has a can do attitude: Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference. ~Winston Churchill – A leader has an attitude that infects others with joy and the belief that they can do anything. Voltaire said “Life is a shipwreck but we must not forget to sing in the lifeboats.”. It is important to make yourself feel happy and free because when you are happy and free you inspire others to be the same.
- A leader looks for the best perspective instead of assuming that they already have it: If you do not raise your eyes you will think that you are the highest point. ~Antonio Porchia,Voces, 1943, translated from Spanish by W.S. Merwin
Do you want to learn from a true Latino Leader on how to enhance your leadership skills and your confidence?
A few months ago, I met a Latino leader from New York with Puerto Rican background. His name is Jonathan Baez. He is a relative of Joan Baez, the famous singer and peace activist for Amnesty International. Jonathan however has his own story to share. His story impressed me so much that I did an interview with him for my website www.ALatinoChoice.com
On Thursday, the first of September 2011, I will interview him again on his story and this time also will discuss his strategies with him on how he overcame having his mom tell him that he was a mistake to be born, having had two strokes before the age of thirty, having been threatened to be killed by his own brother, starting his own company with a very unique business set-up, and much more.
His resilience is an inspiration to believe in yourself no matter the circumstances. Go to http://onlinefreedommixer.theoddoneoutstanding.com to reserve your seat if you want to
learn Jonathan Baez’ strategies to overcome the worst situations possible.
