Are you leading or being led?

Leadership. This word seems heavy, right? Every one of us want to be a leader. But most of us are being led instead of being a leader. The problem lies in not others, but us. Today, I would share with you top 3 reasons why a person, whether it's you or me, cannot be a leader. 


If you are already a leader or consider yourself as a leader, you can still read the post. You would find it somewhat related to you. For others, it would be very much helpful! So read on for more:
1) Habit of indecision:
This is the number one reason for being led by others. You may not be able to make a decision whether by chance or by habit. By chance can happen one or may be two times. The choice one happens every time. If you look closely to your past decisions or past indecision, you would get a clear picture of what I intend to say. For example, you as a student, failed to make up a decision to enroll for your favorite subject. The result, you ended up being into a subject which you never liked. This happens most of the times.
The reason for this is primarily that you are influenced by the decisions of your parents, relatives and peers. The choice which you make may sometimes match with what their parents expect out of them. Most of the times, they don't match. This, slowly gets hardwired into your mind and becomes a habit. If you want to be a leader, you have to give up this habit of indecision.
2) Procrastination:
This, is somewhat related to the indecision point made above. You want something, you keep on delaying the work you need to do to get that thing. This also can be due to habit of indecision that you are forced to procrastinate. If you need something or want something, prepare an action plan and straightaway jump into the plan. You will make the mistakes but you will get what you want quicker than the former approach.
3) Failure in recognition:
The third and most dangerous part about not being a leader is not recognizing what exactly you want. If you don't know what you want, you are bound to have a habit of indecision and you are bound to procrastinate. The solution is simple. Simply sit down with a pen and a paper and write down your wish list. Prioritize it from most important to least important. Follow a step by step plan and mark it achieved every time  you achieve that objective.
These were my reasons of why you cannot be a leader. What's your take? What reasons you think are stopping you from being a leader? Share your thoughts in the comments section below!

'Welcome to Melbourne' a voice echoed as the plane landed at the Melbourne airport. There was a hustle and bustle as the passengers started removing their luggage from the cabin compartment. Pankhuri was delighted. She performed all the formalities of arrival, claimed her luggage, hired a taxi and left for the hotel. She had to stay in a hotel for first few days till all the formalities for her admission at the university were completed and the hostel allocated to her. She reached the hotel at around 10 in the morning. A blonde man with blue eyes, wearing a Grey suit who sat at the reception welcomed her. 'Welcome to the Melbourne Marriot, Ma'am. Here is your room card.' He said giving a swipe card to her. 'Thank you, Could you please arrange someone to fetch my luggage to the room?' she asked importantly. 'Sure!' he said.

I wish this night stayed....

Cold breeze grazing my feet Maybe it's an act so folly But my heart skipped a beat Surrounded by sheer melancholy Your whispers echoing in my ears Its difficult to see with Eyes welling up with tears Heart aching in writhe Winds changed the direction again Waiting for this since quite long No more I can abstain Come let's dance to the song Beneath the open sky Beside you I laid Now don't say bye I wish this night stayed...
