THE TRUTH ABOUT LEADERSHIP.

Leadership is a term that many people have tried to define.
There are thousands of articles and books that have been written to try to come up with a concrete definition of the word leadership. Many seminars and workshops have also been held to define leadership which has led to various definitions of leadership hence confusion and misunderstanding.
Leadership is Learnt.
The truth is that all great leaders need a foundation to build their leadership skills on. Leadership is learnt more than its taught. To be a great leader you have to know the truth about leadership. This is the foundation where your knowledge will be learnt from to prevent being swayed by any arguement that has been raised towards leadership.
Through a good and a strong foundation of knowledge about leadership one can be able to analyse various opinions and ideas presented with wisdom.
Leading by example.
In practising leadership, actions must be expressed because a leader leads by example. Being a leader requires that you walk the talk by doing what you say.
You should be able to do something well as your followers abserve, so that you may do it again with them and later, your followers may do it on their own as you observe. Being a practical leaderhelps you instill a working mentality on the follower and throught hat you become a good example and a role model.
Decision Making in Leadership.
A leader must understand that they will always be required to make decisions. A leader should be a person who is able to collect enough information and analyse it thoroughly in order to come up with a suitable decision.
A leader should not be afraid to make decisions. At times a leader can make the wrong decision and hurt the  whole organisation but it should not be a discouragement.
When it comes to decision making, a leader should be firm and focused for them to be effective and benefit the whole organization.
Leadership is Influence.
All leaders should understand that influence is the main ingredient of leadership. Without influence there is no leading. Influence is the ability to gain followers. John Maxwell says that, "If you are leading and no one is following, you are only taking a walk."
An effective leader is a person who can attract followers by portraying positive traits. Through influence, a leaders should be able to provide service to others. Leading through service is a strong and positive influence to the society.
A leader should be a person who is working hard for the benefit of others and inspiring others to do the same. An effective leader should portray an attitude of influence through service for the benefit of everyone.
You can be a Leader too.
Anyone can become an effective leader. Leadership has to do with principles and behavioural patterns which can be learnt and applied to portray the true essence of leadership.

Leadership is more learnt that it is taught. An individual has to put effort and resources into learning the basic principles of leadership. The learning should provide the individual with a strong foundation full of truth and wisdom about leadership.

INSPIRATION, MOTIVATION, LEADERSHIP AND RELATIONSHIPS.

Jim Rohn once said that, "Motivation is like taking a bath, you can't do without a bath, and yesterday's bath is not sufficient for today so you have to take another bath."
What he was trying to bring across is that motivation that was powerful yesterday may not be powerful today. It is essential to be motivated daily and stay motivated every day.
Inspiration and Motivation.
Inspiration is the key to unlocking the immense potential that is in us. It helps us discover our uniqueness and the importance of our destiny. Everyone has something that they can do best.
Motivation gives us the power to keep moving and focus on our goals. It gives us the strength not to give up during hard times and to focus on the rewards that come after.
Inspiration and motivation will keep us focused, they can be a foundation of knowledge which we can hold on to as we succeed in life.

You can also read, "Defining Leadership is Difficult."
Leadership.         
Leadership is all about influence, it is the ability to obtain followers and help them realize their potential to achieve a certain goal. Leadership is a quality that is developed; it is being the person that others will gladly follow.
Leading has to do with casting a vision and motivating people. Being a leader is not about position, but about disposition, which will influence the way the follower thinks and feels. Leaders lead people with their hearts and not their minds.
Relationships.
Love is not just an act or a feeling, it is a commitment. Love grows with time, we actually choose to fall in love, it is never an accident. It is always based on a genuine relationship that focuses on respect for each other.

Whenever a person truly loves the other person, they grow self-less and think more of the other person. They give gladly and expect nothing in return. True love always focuses on deepening the relationship and acknowledges the importance of being patient with the other person.

DEFINING LEADERSHIP IS DIFFICULT.

Leadership has been a puzzle to many.
The term leadership is one of the most difficult to define. It has been discovered that everything rises and falls on leadership. If you apply the traits of leadership in your everyday life you shall probably be successful.
People See Leadership Differently.
People look at leadership from different angles, and how leadership has been applied in different platforms and then try to come up with a definition. In response to that, we have many definitions of leadership pointing to one direction but they vary in their meaning.
Many powerful stories are told about influential people. These stories cover the full history of leadership, showing different character traits expressed by the people and the kind of influence they had on a mass of people.
Leadership Stories.
In the narrations we see the people giving service to the society and the benefits the people of that society receive. The stories really bring out leadership in the frame of our minds and with such stories the essesnce of leadership is best captured.
Leadership is a very human activity. Leadership has to do with some human activity applied on a particular task or organisation. Being a manager or having a high position in an organisation does not necessarily make you a leader. The things that someone does like inspiring others to accomplish a certain task is the accomplishment of a leader.

You can also read, "Qualities of Leadership here."
Leadership is Influence.
When defining leadership there must be a human activity involved in the definition to make it more meaningful. With regards to human activity, your leadership skills will determine the level of your success. In other words, the effectiveness of your work will never rise above your ability to lead and influence people.

QUALITIES OF LEADERSHIP.

Qualities like integrity, honesty, fairness and credibility are fundamental and recurrent themes regardless of the leadership situation involved.
Qualities.
Integrity means being 'whole' and single minded. People with integrity live their lives like open books, they don't hide anything and their words and deeds match up.
Honesty has to do with telling the truth and never cheating or stealing. A leader who shows honesty should have a mind and an attitude of expressing the truth regardless of the consequences.
Fairness means that you're doing things in an acceptable and approriate way. Leaders who are fair treat everybody according to the rules without special regard for anyone.
Credibility is one of the best and greatest principle in leadership. Credibility has to do with belief and trust. A leader should be a person who can be trusted and they exercise the truth and positive change to people.

You can also read, "A Poem About kenya here."
Leadership is Actions.
Leadership is difficult to define but you know it when you see it. By looking at a person in any level of leadership, you can tell whether he/she is a leader or not. We find that the easiest way to identify leadership is by seeing it been expressed.
People who have developed the leadership principles need not to say that they are leaders, it shows naturally on them. They carry an aura which attracts situations of leadership and they also havea great influence on people naturally, it just happens.
The ingredients of leadership can be learnt, you have to look for them and develop them.When defining leadership you must include human activities since leadership cannot do without them. Then there are basic qualities that should not miss such as honesty, integrity, fairness and credibility.

COMPARING OUR STRENGTHS TO CREATE UNITY IN KENYA.


We are always comparing ourselves with other people.
It is a natural thing for human beings to compare themselves with friends and acquintances. The way you compare yourself with the other person determines if the comparison has a positive effect or a negative effect. Kenyans need to compare each others strengths and best moments to enhance unity.
Negative Comparisons.
Kenyans have a tendency of comparing their best to the worst of a fellow Kenyan. This creates a mentality where one community thinks it is better and superior than the other one. It makes them feel like they do not need the other community.
Some Kenyans only see the worst things in Kenya. The see Kenya as full of sufferings and misfortunes. This kind of thinking only magnifies the negative things and blinds people from seeing the great things that are happening in our country.

You can also Read,"Common-Unity in Kenya."

A Powerful Comparison.
The best wat to compare each other and enhance unity in Kenya is by comparing our best with the other person's best. This makes us to be intereted in our brothers and sisters in Kenya.
When we begin to get interested in other Kenyans, we start to learn more about them and understand them well. We begin to get closer to each other and relate to each other.

When we can share our strengths, we can become a bigger and stronger nation. Our diversity is also our strength. Seeing the best in all of us is a great place to start building unity.

COMMON - UNITY IN KENYA.


Kenya needs a common unity for social support and for bringing solutions.
A community is a group of people that have built a common-unity. A community is more than an ethnic tribe, a community can be  Kenya as a whole. When all ethnic communities come together in Kenya, they build one community known as Kenya.
Common-Unity.
A common-unity is when a Kenyan sees another Kenyan struggling and offers a helping hand. It is when a problem needs to be solved and all Kenyans come together and give everyone the feeling of belonging and togetherness.
We are social beings and everyone is an important part of this country called Kenya. No one and no community needs to be isolated from other communities. Someone said that,"No man is an island." It is true that we cannot live by ourselves, we need other human beings.

You can also read,"Educating Kenya for Unity."

A Community is Built on Unity.
Unity starts with an open heart and an open mind. An open attitude allows us to comprehend things well and fine tune our perception. All human existance is social in nature, we need each other.
It takes unity in communities to create a beloved Kenya. A community is people bounded by relatedness, respect, justice and love. We need to realize that an injustice to one is an injustice to all of us.

As Kenyans we need to take actions towards uniting our country. It takes all of us coming together to make that difference. Each of us doing a little can amount to all of us doing so much.

EDUCATING KENYA FOR UNITY.


Education is a transformational journey to take people from where they are to where they could be.
We can use this transformational journey to take Kenya from where it is now to a place of unity. A complete educational system has four parts to it. A teacher, a willing student, knowledge and a flow of the three.
A Teacher.
A teacher can be anyone, it is not only the person standing before the audience and speaking to them. Anyone sharing valuable information is a teacher. You can learn from anyone.
Stories change people's minds. To understand each other we have to tell stories. These are stories of our experiences in life. Through stories we have a chance to build relationships. We can build unity in Kenya by telling each other stories that show how unique and valuable everyone is.
A Willing Student.
A willing student is anyone who is ready to learn. When someone is speaking you, you should listen to understand them well.
In uniting Kenya, we have to be willing to learn more about our neighbour, their different experiences and their culture. This creates a bond and a unity.
Knowledge.
Knowledge is about facts. We need to learn and understand more about unity. We need to understand that if we are not united then we have set Kenya up to fail. We should never let divisiveness prevail because we are most powerful when we are together.
Knowledge is not power. Knowledge is potential power. If you have knowledge and you don't put it to practice then it is wasted. In uniting Kenya we have to be intentional and do things that unite us.

You can also read,"We Are Powerful Together."

A Flow of The Three.

In using the education structure to unite Kenya we have to get people who boldly talk about unity and bring people together. We need to talk about unity and develop understanding in us to a point that we can listen to other people and empathize with them. Then take it a little further by doing actions that will unite Kenya.

WE ARE POWERFUL TOGETHER


Kenya will either unite within itself or crumble from within.
Kenya is made up of many communities who are gifted in many different ways and if we can find a way to integrate these skills then we can be able to create a very powerful country that cannot be beaten in anything.
A bead necklace is complete and strong when all the beads are well tied together. When one bead is missing then the whole necklace becomes weak and incomplete.
Blessings in Kenya.
Our country is blessed with marathon runners who have reaaly made us proud several times by creating world records in marathon races and beating equally great athletes from other countries.
It is true that not all of us can run a marathon, but we have our brothers and sisters from Kenya who can run really well and they represent us before the world. They carry our flag and sing our national anthem
Kenyans Representing Kenyans.
Whenever a team is picked to represent Kenya in any competion, they represent all of us as Kenyans. When they win medals and trophies, it is recorded in history that Kenya won medals and trophies.
It doesn't take a million Kenyans to win a championship. It takes just a few gifted ones. We select the few who are well talented to represent us and win medals for us.
A swahili proverb says that, "Umoja ni nguvu, utengano ni udhaifu." Which can be translated as "unity is strength and division is weakness." Another wise man said that, 'Each of us need all of us and all of us need each of us." Separation and division is not our best option.
Kenyans Uniting to Fight Vices.
We need to unite as Kenyans and fight against the things that are fighting our country and our unity. Instead of fighting a fellow Kenyan, we need to fight the things that are hurting our brothers and sisters in Kenya.
We can stand together as Kenya and fight things like radicalisation which poses risks of terrorism in our country. We can stand together as Kenyans and fight the injustices that are trying to divide our nation.

You can also read, "Unity in Kenya Starts with a Thought."

Kenyans Hating Evil.
Instead of burning with anger and hatred towards a fellow Kenyan, we can burn with anger and hatred towards the evil things in our society.

It is okay to have hatred, but not hatred against another human being. A hatred that hates injustice and division. A hate that will lead to change that unites us as Kenyans.

UNITY IN KENYA STARTS WITH A THOUGHT.


Thoughts are powerful. What you think you become.
James Allen wrote in his book, As a man thinketh in His Heart, that, "Mind is the master power that moulds and makes, and man is mind, and evermore he takes the tool of thought and, shaping what he wills, brings forth a thousand joys, a thousand ills: he thinks in secret, and it comes to pass: Environment is but his looking glass."
Thoughts of Unity.
Unity in Kenya begins as a thought. It is thinking about uniting with fellow Kenyans. It is a personal repsonsibility to start conceiving and entertaining thoughts of unity.
Humans beings are social beings and we can't live in isolation. The concept of dividing Kenya through ethinic communities is a false concept. Kenya is one nation under God.
Dichotomous Thinking.
We have this kind of thinking going on in Kenya which says that it is us against them. It identifies people as other people from another community. This kind of thinking is called dichotomous thinking, where people think that they are always in a battle with other people. This kind of thinking creates fear and disintegration.
This kind of thinking is a wrong way to look at your fellow Kenyans. It creates a perception that through division people can have a life of their own.
We need other Kenyans for Kenya to be complete. Kenya is made of more than 40 communitiesn which makes it unique and strong. If we can embrace each others strengths then we can be united in our diversity.
We Can Embrace Unity.
If we want to enhance unity in Kenya, we have to start with ourselves. We have to believe that we can create unity in Kenya with our consciousness. The words that we use are very powerful, they can either build or destroy. Words have the ability to produce a reality.
We need to be careful not to degrade anyone and practice the idea of not saying a negative word to anybody. We need to think about creating real and deep meaningful relationships.

You can also read, "The Only Constant Thing is Change."

Unity Starts with You.

We have a hope for a united Kenya. The heart is the organ of transformation. This is where we can find love , peace, compassion and harmony. Change starts with you. Unity starts with you. Mahatma Ghandi said,"Be the change you want to see in the world."

THE ONLY CONSTANT THING IS CHANGE.


Change is inevitable and things are rapidly changing. We need to stay alert and expect change to happen. What you are afraid of is never as bad as what you imagine. The fear you let build up in your mind is worse than the situation that actually exists.
Change Happens.
Change happens and it will continue to happen. Nothing remains the same. The sun rises in the East and sets in the West and day has to give way to night. That is a change that happens daily and most of us anticipate and plan well for it.
In the same way, we need to anticipate change whether it is as simple as day and night or changes in our personal lives. We need to notice the small gradual changes and plan accordingly before the great change happens. It doesn't get dark in a second, the sun disappears slowly as darkness takes over and we begin to prepare for the night.
Monitor Change.        
Change does not happen as abruptly as an electric blackout. Change starts slowly and gradually and we need to stay alert. Most break-ups don't just happen in a day. It starts with not replying texts, missed calls and not returning the calls and series of mis-communication, mis-understandings and lost of affection.
When change happens we need to adapt to it quickly. The faster we adapt, the quicker we can recover. It is true that you might lose some privileges but with change comes new things and opportunities that we can take advantage of.
Change Yourself.
You also need to change yourself. Some people do their best to cling to the past and they are blinded to the new things that are happening around. Change with change. Develop new habits and skills that will help you manage the new situation.
Enjoy the new change. Get familiar with new things and be open minded. You will make a few mistakes with the new things, which is okay if you are willing to continue learning and becoming better.

You can also read,"You Become a Success Once You Begin and Follow-Through."
Be Ready to Change.
Now that you understand that change will always happen, be flexible and keep your options open. It is true that we might be afraid of what is happening or what will happen next, but we must be ready for the next step and plan accordingly.

Envision yourself finding something better. Reflect on the past mistakes and use them to plan for the future. Be flexible and fast because the more time you take to move, you probably won't. There is something much better out there waiting for you to overcome your fear.

PERSUADE BY ASKING QUESTIONS, NOT CONVINCING.


In his book, Selling 101 by Zig ziglar, he says that you don't persuade by telling, you persuade by asking.
A lot of people try to persuade others by convincing them of their way of thinking. This makes them tell the other person a lot of things that they don't need to know. Instead, one should ask morequestions and listen to the answers.
Professional Sales people.
Professional sales people ask more questions to discover the needs of their prospective clients before trying to sell their products or services to them. Just like a doctor has to examine the patient before prescribing a course of treatment . They don't jump into the details of how their product or service is superior than others.
Professional sales people examine their prospects to discover exactly what they need and then provide a suitable solution. They are master listeners.
The Art of Asking Good Questions.
The person who asks most questions in a conversation is the person who is in-charge of the conversation.By asking questions, I'm not suggesting that you go round interrogating people so that you can take advantage of them. What I'm saying is that you genuinely get interested in the other person and ask questions that will reveal their true need so that you can provide a solution.
When you become genuinely interested in their other person they will appreciate and open up to you in return. This forms a good relationship and a bond with the other person. When you also ask questions to take advantage of the other person they will know and hate you for that.
The Art of Listening Well.                                 
After you ask questions, listen well. The aim is to understand the other person's point of view and empathize with them not simply waiting to say something or ask another question. You should listen so as to understand.
Great listening involves listening with your ears, eyes and heart. You listen with your ears to hear the words they use, you listen with your eyes by watching their body language and listen with your heart to feel their emotions.
Empathy provides Solutions.
In order to persuade other people you have to ask good questions and listen well to their answers. You cannot persuade by doing your best to convince the other person. In convincing you say a lot of things that the other person doesn't need to know.
Genuinely get interested in people and ask questions that will help you provide a solution. People will like you for that. Listen well to what the other person is saying and empathize with them. Empathy helps you feel what the other person is feeling do you can produce the best results.

YOU BECOME A SUCCESS ONCE YOU BEGIN AND FOLLOW-THROUGH.


Success is not an event, success is a daily thing.
You don't become successful the day you receive your certificate during graduation, or when you receive a medal in a competition. You become successful the day you make the decision to become the best in your field.
You are Either Preparing or Repairing.
Successful people prepare for the future through vision and they don't sell their vision for a little comfort. When you are repairing your past, you are not preparing for the future because you have to go back and make things right before progressing.
Preparing for the Future.
Preparing for the future is looking at a few years into the future and planning well for it. It is thinking about the kind of person you want to be in future and what you want people to recognize you for. It is also about building a personal brand that everyone can identify you with.
Repairing Past Mistakes.
Repairing, on the other hand, is about looking at the past mistakes and figuring out how to get yourself out of it. Maybe you got a little bit comfortable with life and never gave a thought about the future and now things are kind of tough and complicated..
Success is a Journey.
Success is a process or you can call it ajourney. It's not about getting into a new venture and becoming the best with little effort or overnight success. Some people say that they became overnight success after working on their craft or skills for years.
Climbing a Mountain is a Process.
It is said that you cannot climb the tallest mountain in a single day, and if you do, you might lose your life the moment you reach the top summit. This is because the air at the top is so dense and a normal human being cannot survive.
So the easiest way to climb to the top summit is by climbing it in steps and getting into different levels of the mountain as your lungs adjust to the level of oxygen provided in different level. With that in mind, their is no short-cut to success.

You can also read,"The Mind as An Inspiration."
Everything Counts.
It is better to start preparing early enough, create a vision that will help you stay focused and determined. If their are some things that need to be repaired, get to work now and fix them as you being to prepare for the future. Whatever you do daily counts and it leads to success.
John Maxwell teaches that,"Whatever you're doing daily is either taking you closer to or further from your success. So everything counts, whether it is in  your advantage or disadvantage.

THE MIND AS AN INSPIRATION.



The mind plays a very important role in our lives. 

The functioning of our body fully depends on the mind and it also has influence on our day to day life which we call reality. Research has proven that that the mind can alter the reality that we live in.

As a Man Thinks In His Mind so is He. 

Just as James Allen said, "As a man thinketh in his mind, so is he." Our lives are shaped by the thoughts in our minds.For the mind to work as an inspiration it has to accept this responsibility. Everything starts from the mind, so inspiration has to come from the mind as well. What the mind receives and accepts gladly it will look for ways to accomplish. Nothing can really distract it or make it do otherwise.

You can also read,"Life's Push is a Learning Opportunity."

Thoughts creates Habits

What we think makes a pattern in the mind and that is how we behave and talk. If the mind can accept that you are a warrior then it will form you to be a warrior. Your words, ideas and actions will awlays express the warrior within you.

The mind is a good servant and also a worst master at the same time because it works as it is programmed. If your mind is programmed with positive thoughts then it will perform positivity everytime but if your mind is programmed with negative thoughts then you will be a product of negativity. As they say, "Garbage in,  garbage out. "

LIFE'S PUSH IS A LEARNING OPPORTUNITY.



Life pushes all of us around. Some people give up and others fight.

In his book,"Rich Dad, Poor Dad," Robert Kiyosaki wrote that,"Most of the time, life does not talk to you. It just sort of pushes you around. Each push is life saying,"Wake up. There's something I want you to learn. If you learn life's lessons, you will do well. If not, life will just continue to push you around.

Learning from the Push

Some people just let life push them around and they open up to learn new things. It might be losing a job, heart break from a relationship or a lost opportunity. These things may look like misfortunes but they also carry fortunes within them. Change is inevitable and things are changing rapidly.

We need to develop a mindset of flexibility and growth. We need to look at what we can learn from every situation we find ourselves in. The quicker we learn the quicker we can move. The more time we dwell on thinking of our loss, the more we get pushed by life.

Getting angry and Pushing back

Some people get angry and push back. They push back the wrong things and people, not realizing that its life that is trying to teach them something. They might fight hard to regain their lost job, or former partner or even start to beg for lost opportunities.

We can fight as hard as we want but when its time for progress, there is nothing else we can do but accept the outcome and move on. Humans are created for growth and if we are not growing we are dying. Real learning takes energy, passion and a burning desire.

We can use an analogy of a flowing river. A river that flows will always have fresh water, but a swamp which harbors its water will be filthy and a breeding place for insects and diseases. In the same way,  a mind that is always growing will be fresh with ideas and plans for progress.

You can also read,"What Does 'TIME' Mean?

We Need to Learn as Much as We Can.

When life pushes us around a few learn the lessons and move on. They welcome the experience but most quit and a few like to fight. What we need to understand is that life is trying to awaken our minds and help us learn so that we can do better. 

Change is happening everywhere and we need to be flexible and keep our options open. Each day is a learning opportunity, every outcome is also a learning opportunity. We cannot stop learning.

Jim Rohn taught that a tree will grow as tall as it can and stretch its shoots as far as it can. Human beings are better than trees. We too need to grow and stretch as much as we can.
