As we can see,repparttar development of people into leaders is level four and wen a leader reaches this level, they indeed have become a great leader.

Why would anyone want to become a leader and exactly who can be seen as a leader? The obvious answers would be a boss, a pastor, a government official, a coach, and a corporate executive. There is another more important position that most people overlook when asked to list people that are leaders and that is teachers. Teachers should strive to reach level five more than anyone because due to their position they haverepparttar 142742 opportunity to influencerepparttar 142743 future of our country by influencingrepparttar 142744 minds of our children. Parents should also strive to becomerepparttar 142745 best leaders they can so that they can positively influence their children and help to make our country, perhaps even our world, a better place as an end result. The latter definitely have been lacking in their duties as leaders for many years as can be seen by observing Generation Xers as they pass through our institutions of higher learning and ultimately intorepparttar 142746 work force of today. Most of these individuals have never been exposed to quality leadership inrepparttar 142747 home or at school; as a result, they not only lackrepparttar 142748 understanding of how important leadership qualities are, but fail to ever grasprepparttar 142749 concept of leadership.

As parents and teachers we must developrepparttar 142750 leaders without ourselves so that we can developrepparttar 142751 leaders within our children and make a more positive impact onrepparttar 142752 lives of others and hopefully turnrepparttar 142753 situation we are now in around. WE have a responsibility, nay a duty, not only to our children, but also to our country and torepparttar 142754 world we live in to do this. We must readrepparttar 142755 proper books written by quality leaders so that we can learn how to develop ourselves and ďlead by example.Ē When we ourselves learn what makes good leaders and practice these learned traits, we will find that inrepparttar 142756 end not only have we become better people for it, but we have helped our children to become better people as well.

Loving relationships. As much as some people swear they are happy being alone, we need human companionship to feel alive and part ofrepparttar world.

Quality time with family and friends. Everyone thrives when you takerepparttar 142665 time to enjoyrepparttar 142666 important people in your life. Even if youíre a workaholic like me, make sure to set aside time everyday for important relationships. You think that if you do allrepparttar 142667 work now, you can make it up to them later when youíve made it. Most ofrepparttar 142668 time, byrepparttar 142669 time youíve made it,repparttar 142670 important people in your life have left. It happens allrepparttar 142671 time.

A way to support all ofrepparttar 142672 above. Yep, thatís whererepparttar 142673 money comes in. But itís more than that. It has to be some- thing you like doing, or every workday will seem like a prison sentence.

Dreams and goals. Without something to strive for, something to live for, we end up in a tedious existence. We need something that keepsrepparttar 142674 fire going Ė no matter how old you are. How many people have you known who reached retirement only to spendrepparttar 142675 rest of their days in front ofrepparttar 142676 television?

Faith. It takes many forms throughout your life. Faith in your God, faith in yourself, faith in your kids. Youíll find many times in your life when you just need to have faith that things will come out ok. Faith is what get us through repparttar 142677 tough times. It has been proven in numerous studies that those who practice their religion live longer, healthier, and happier lives.

Whenever you feel discontent coming on, do some soul searching and find out what youíve been ignoring. It may seem like a lot of work to tend to all this stuff. Itís just likerepparttar 142678 juggler. When you drop one ofrepparttar 142679 balls,repparttar 142680 rest come dropping down too. You need to pay attention to all of repparttar 142681 balls. Instead of a balancing act, letís call it a Juggling Act!
