#5 Minutes Truth: Great Leaders aren’t born, they’re made!


When you hear the word “Leadership”, what is the first thing that comes into your mind? It could be your boss or management in your company. It could be your coach. It could be your team captain. It could be your president and prime minister. Here is my opinion, they just title that they held. It does not mean they have the noble leadership attribute. 

My late father taught me the 5 V’s of Leadership Attributes. There are Visible, Vocal, Value, Virtue and Vocation. Take some to read it. The toughest attribute to hold is the vocation. Vocation is defined as the undying commitment to serve. Leaders suppose to serve his or her people and lead them in the right direction. Before we lead people, ask yourself these question. Are you able to lead yourself? Are you a leader in your own life? Are you in control?  Once you are able to lead your life to greatness. Then, only you earn the right to lead people to greatness. Think about it. 

These are my 3 top quotes on leadership from Gary Vaynerchuk, Simon Sinek and Robin Sharma. There is one BONUS quote at the end by Simon Sinek.  Feel free to share this post.

8 SELF-AWARENESS QUOTES FROM THE #ASKGARYVEE


I came across chapter 17 on SELF-AWARENESS from the book titled, #AskGaryVee: One Entrepreneur’s Take on Leadership, Social Media, and Self-Awareness. It is officially my favourite chapter of the book. I have to read the chapter twice to get the depth of the understanding.

We heard positive attributes like hardworking, dedication, commitment and much more. SELF-AWARENESS does not seem to get much attention. I believe it is important to be self-aware of your own strength and weakness. The next level is the ability to use your strength to your advantage and the ability to work around your weakness. For you to do that, there is a process known as the elimination process. You need to jump and hustle to discover your strength and weakness.

Here are the 8 self-awareness quotes taken from the #AskGaryVee: One Entrepreneur’s Take on Leadership, Social Media, and Self-Awareness.

1

Knowing how you come across to others can often give you an advantage as an entrepreneur!

2

There’s one hack, and it’s asking people straight up to tell you your strengths and weakness. You have to be prepared for them to tell you things you may not want to hear or that you disagree with.

3

Get yourself thick skin. I hate reading bad stuff about me, but I can handle it. I respect it, accept it, understand it, and I try to learn from it!

4

What works for me doesn’t necessarily work for you.

5

If you are self-aware enough to know that you lack confidence, you could definitely execute to get more! 

6

At the very least, start working to surround yourself with confident, positive people.

7

Not everyone will understand what you`re doing, and the more you work, the more chances you have to be disappointed. Or even to be the disappointment. But don’t let those moments fool you. An instance of failure could be a huge opportunity.

8

You have to do you! Self-Awareness of Inspiration
You have to do you.

 

#5 Minutes Truth: God gives the toughest war to his toughest warrior!


Adversity is one of my favorite words. Adversity connects to my “Why.” My why is to inspire people to embrace the adversity of life so that they can grow living life with fulfillment. Adversity can be in the form of failure, discouragement, obstacles, fear, and obstacles. It will be tough! What if I told you, adversity is a given life`s journey. You can do nothing about it or do something about it. Believe me, the moment you choose to do nothing you already lost! So do something about it! Imagine, adversity in the form of the highest mountain.  Climbing up steps by steps and hills after hills. Once you are the top, the view is spectacular!

Without adversity, no victory worth celebrating!

Without adversity, no medal worth giving! 

Without adversity, no award worth recognizing! 

Without adversity, no growth worth embracing!

Without adversity, no life worth living!

Remember, a life without adversity is a life without growth. A life without growth is a life without meaning. Learn to embrace it! It will be worth it.

Here are my top 3 quotes on overcoming life adversity;
