Leaders must be partners with other people in the modern world since they no longer can leadsolely based on positional power. Today's visionary leadership relates to generatingconfidence, so the rule by king or official leader that was authority itself is outdated andineffective, failing to make people feel being part of the game. As long as decision making isconcerned, effective leadership not only inspires others to have confidence in the leader butalso inspires them to have confidence in themselves.
To gain people's confidence, a real leader is a visionary who is content to point the way sothat others can follow toward the horizon. Usually people tend to deposit their trust in goodcommunication and good judgment--two essential qualities of a leader. Such confidence isa feeling more about influence than about authority, considering that nowadays the positionalpower alone might not bring about that kind of confidence which catches up with the moderntime. From this point of view, it may be assumed that an influential person who has people'sconfidence does not have to hold a position to become a leader. Therefore, only under such aleader can people feel like participating in the decision making, and learn more, work more,achieve more and dream more. In short, people follow the leader's vision of a better future.
If an effective leader has the vision that a dream can be achieved, others become filled with thepower and energy to get it done. This shows how important it is for a leader to connect withothers and make them feel that they are part of the team. Without that connection, the leader'sability to lead would soon be lost. The 'we-feeling' connection draws from something magneticas excellent leaders have a way of communication that inspires self-confidence in others.That is to say, people's confidence in the visionary leader's judgment breeds confidence inthemselves as well. Trusting that their voices are being heard and opinions are valued, they feelas if they were partners of the leadership.
On the whole, all visionary leaders can inspire others' confidence in the effective leadershipin decision making as well as inspire others to have self-confidence in getting the job done.Through the art of communication, successful leaders understand people's aspirations andmake the leadership judgments understood by people. In the modern world, decisions seem tobe made by leaders, but leaders should not stand alone.
Many successful persons seem alike to have a very strong will called desire. It seems anuncommon common sense to make success happen. Probably no other human characteristicis more outstanding than the will to plan carefully and to work patiently.
As a saying goes: "Success favors the prepared mind." For this reason, preparing one's careerwith details is like seriously mapping life's routes toward achievements. Only by so doing with aconsistent mind can one prevent desire from becoming blind ambition seeking accidently tostrike it rich or downright to be particularly lucky in life. In other words, a successful person iscapable of setting goals and paving the way against all odds. Of course, important to successare also such human qualities as honesty, intelligence, a sense of humor, among othervirtues. However, these characteristics must be considered as only advantages which do notalone guarantee success in life.
Few would doubt that working with patience is an expression of desire. Nothing worthwhilecomes easily and good work takes pains. This means that a successful person is one who canmake the best of education and talents, if any. Unfortunately, an educated person would remainonly an educated person unless possessing passion to do more. Likewise, it would be a wasteof talents if gifts from heaven are abandoned in idleness. So it is work, continuous work thatcan accomplish results that last.
As a conclusion, it is easier said than done to be able to plan and to work in such a way thatthe way to success can be ensured. A motto may apply: "Where there is a will; there is a way."When people do not succeed, it might be either that the desire is not strong enough, or that itmight be the absence of desire in the first place.
Don't confuse a university degree with a successful life, even though higher education canopen doors to a range of economic options. It is one thing to make a good living, and yet it isquite another to make a good fortune. In various aspects of life, success is to be measurednot so much by the education that one has as by the effort that one makes, plus of course lotsof luck.
Undoubtedly, there are some types of success in professional life that are dependent on auniversity education. You need a college degree to have a career in a profession such as law,medicine, engineering, or teaching. In today's workplace, job opportunities and academicdegrees are linked in such a way that it seems difficult, if not impossible, for an individualwithout good qualifications to make any career success happen. According to national statisticsshown by economists, bachelor's degree holders earn upward of 40 percent more than high-school graduates. Based on this pattern, income levels rise as educational levels rise. Manystudies also reveal that university education introduces you not only choices of career but alsolife goals and the power to reach these goals. In short, being able to go through highereducation increases one's employability and earning potential as well as one's self-esteem.
Having a degree, however, does not mean that one will be successful in life. In some work fields,what is crucial are hard work and being lucky. To begin with, you do not have to have a highereducation to become successful people like business-persons, sports players, political leaders,movie and music stars. While hard work is motivated by the desire to triumph, success bydestiny is associated with that old ABC--ability, breaks and courage. Not all success stories aretold about university graduates, nor are academic degrees particularly essential when it comesto becoming wealthy. Ironic but true, successful entrepreneurs even benefit from not havingacademic qualifications, because going to college and taking examinations forces people tolearn and think like other millions of graduates. This actually makes it less likely that they willcome up with creative ideas and truly mould-breaking insights on which amazing successes arebuilt.
There is no arguing the importance of a university education as long as employability andincome are concerned, but success also comes from effort to do the right work at the righttime. If you think a successful life means having a lot of money, you are far from wrong.Nevertheless, it does not follow that the door to success is closed for people who do not haveacademic results.
