There are many who want to lead,
And even more who actually do,
But leadership has a lot more to do with action than talk,
And leaders need followers.
Leadership is teamwork between those who lead,
And those who follow.
A leader is only as good as his followers,
For if your leadership influences no one to follow you,
Then all your actions would be in vain.
It takes a lot to be a leader;
It is a lot of responsibility, courage and discipline.
It is more than just the title or name one bears,
It is all about the substance of the person in control.
Sometimes being a leader means going against personal beliefs,
To ensure the greater good of the people he leads-
It cannot be just conforming to the general ideals of the populace.
Above all, when you choose to become a leader,
You will need wisdom most of all.
