Are You A Good Leader ?
Becoming a Good Leader is not so easy. A lot of things need to be followed to achieve the excellence of becoming a Good Leader.
Our Believe System
There’s a common believe in our mind that the best way of getting our work done is to get angry with that person because what they can’t do, our scolding will make them do. But, how much our believe system is correct? Did we ever stopped for a while and tried to figure out if there was any other way of doing it? There’s a famous saying in India that before judging someone else you must get into his shoes and walk at least 10 steps. This makes you realise the situation of the other person.
Becoming a CEO or a MD is seriously not a matter of joke because you have to go through a lot of hardwork, training and what not-only then someone becomes eligible to head a company. But does it give us the license to hurt people around us to get our job done. To solve this everyday issue we just need to go back few years down the memory lane and remember what did we used to feel when our professor or teacher or parent or someone used to scold us for something that we didn’t do correctly. Did it felt nice in our heart when we went back to do the same work after getting scolded. Did we had a stable mind while studying the chapter for what we got scolded from our parents for not getting good grades? Did we were able to concentrate on our work totally?No ! Because our mind wanders over the incident over and over again experiencing the whole journey of pain everytime. Then why do we expect that people who are working under our supervision will be able to give their best when there heart is full of sorrow and pain that he/she had felt in recent past.
Importance of Peaceful Life
Today even government has started understanding the importance of having a stable and peaceful mind, now it’s our turn to do it.Lastly I will site an example for those who are still not so sure about how work will be getting done if we stop getting angry upon everyone. The story is about famous scientist Thomas Alva Edison, the inventor of the fluorescent light.Once he got the chance to demonstrate his invention. While moving out he gave the lamp to his servant and asked him to carry the lamp with him to the place of demonstration. Unluckily the lamp fell from his hand and got broken. Thomas went to the place of demonstration and apologized from everyone and somehow got just one more day and one last chance for him to demonstrate the lamp. That day he worked for whole night and finally by morning a new lamp was ready. While going out once again he asked the servant to carry the lamp. Everyone told him not to do so because again he will break the lamp just like what he did yesterday. Thomas replied very politely that if I don’t trust him today, then I am going to break his heart and his self confidence which is a million times more costly than the lamp because we can make a new lamp but we can’t make a new heart.
