What Qualities Make A Successful Leader? (Guide)

It’s important to be conscious on your path to success, and equally important to prepare your mind, spirit and body for the success you seek. It’s not enough to be an anonymous member of society, who lets others decide your fate. Exactly what is your idea of success? Success is having achieved that which you determined to do!

You determine what success is for you. It’s not based on any judgment other than your own. All successful people, have one thing in common — determination! To be a success, you must first determine to be so. The seed that leads to action is to first determine. 

Being successful is a two-part process — determination and belief! Both of which begin in the mind. Why? Because if you don’t have a clear idea of what you want in life, you get whatever is left over. Determination and belief are the starting points for success. They open you to new opportunities to do and be anything you desire, and you only need a subconscious thought to plant the seed. How do you do this?

The first and most important element of success is to open your mind. A closed mind seals off creative solutions and eliminates any possibility for new opportunities. A closed mind keeps you where you are in life, where you always have been, and will continue to be.

A Closed Mind Creates:

Constant struggle to achieve or get ahead;
Remorse of not doing or having what you truly dream;
The envy you feel each time you meet, read or hear about someone more successful than you, knowing you should be in that person’s shoes.

None of these feelings are conducive to success. All you need do to be on your path to achieving success is to open your mind. When you truly open your mind, the anger, resentments, hatred and envy are gone; however, it takes some work on your part.

A thought, just like an action, is energy in motion. Emotional thoughts carry even more energy. When you create a thought, especially one you feel emotional about (such as your dream of success), you have created energy that goes out there and allows you to explore, create and grow the thought. The process takes care of itself.

We all have dreams, but not all of us achieve our dreams. That’s because thought patterns are negative or positive in nature. If your thoughts are negative, the energy is negative; if positive, then the energy is positive. When emotions become involved with the thoughts, the energy is even stronger. The energy, however, doesn’t remain dormant — it expands. It expands each time you think.

As energy builds and gains strength, it begins to attract like energy. Like a magnet, the energy attracts other like matter to it. Since the energy is inside you, it attracts the like matter to you. As you can see, negative thoughts and energy weaken you and your ability to achieve. Positive thoughts and energy empower you. Whatever you think, you attract back to you in greater degrees. Literally, your thoughts do create your reality.

Become The Success You Desire

What is inside you (thoughts) is how you respond to life. If your thoughts are negative, then your speech and actions are negative. Likewise, if your thoughts are positive, then so is your speech and actions, which also add to the building and attracting of like energy.

Think, Speak And Act/React With A Sense Of Purpose
Did you know that the Law of Attraction is working every second of every day for every human being whether we understand it, believe in it, or not? So how does the Law of Attraction work? The law of attraction tells us that we can alter the quantum field around us by changing our thoughts and feelings. 

According to quantum physics atoms have energy and are drawn towards atoms with similar energy composition. So following that principle, the law of attraction states that thoughts like atoms are drawn towards same kind of thoughts. Thus, the law of attraction points out that "like attracts like".

Are You Using Your Law Of Attraction To Your Advantage?
Learn to change your way of thinking to be able to attract into your life the things that you truly desire. Learn that all that we have today, has been created by our past thoughts. All that we will receive tomorrow is being created by what we are thinking right now!

It will then become your choice whether to accept or deny it as truth although the refusal to accept and acknowledge it won't change the fact that, it is due to The Law of Attraction's unwavering and predictable nature that you are experiencing the life results that you have, currently.

Follow Through Is The Most Valuable Asset To Any Leader
Getting things done is a process. "It takes a little courage, and a little self-control. And some grim determination, If you want to reach the goal. It takes a great deal of striving, and a firm and stern-set chin. No matter what the battle, if you really want to win, there's no easy path to glory. There is no road to fame. Life, however we may view it, is no simple parlor game; But its prizes call for fighting, For endurance and for grit; For a rugged disposition that will not quit." -Navy SEAL Masterchief

As a leader, the only way to do great work is to love what you do. Elwood N. Chapman uses the analogy of a camera. “Think of attitude as your mental focus on the outside world,” he says. “Like using a camera, you can focus or set your mind on what appeals to you. You can see situations as either opportunities or failures. A cold winter day as either beautiful or ugly. A departmental meeting as interesting or boring.”

How you react to things is more important than what happens to you: You don’t blame others for your mistakes or failures, but you accept the facts and take corrective actions. When things do not go your way, you make changes to reduce the impact of an adverse situation. In short, you response positively and do proper planning from there.

"The only good luck many great men ever had was being born with the ability and determination to overcome bad luck."- Channing Pollock

The Beginning Is Always Today
Finding yourself is mainly about creating yourself. Search for resources that will help you to figure out your purpose and build a life you want.We were all sent here for a reason and that we all have significance in the world.

Vividly picture the day you will be out of this world. What do you want your eulogy to consist of? What would your lifetime achievements be? What would matter the most at the end of your life? Is it what you are doing right NOW?
"The purpose of life is a life of purpose" - Robert Byrne
