Commentary: Take leadership in your life

I truly believe that leadership is a choice. No one is born a leader, a leader is developed, a leader is groomed and most important of all a leader is a student. Not just a academic student that is the easy part, no I mean a student of one of the most important things of all...life!

We are all groomed to go to school, get good grades, get a good job and once you have completed that your life is on the right path. I am not saying education is not important, it is a great tool. But what I am saying is the lessons we learn come from our true educator - life. You see we need to grow and stretch and look to achieve each and everyday no matter what is going on and no matter what is happening around us, that is what true leaders do. I can't imagine General Colin Powell one of the greatest leaders of our generation not being a student of life.

To be a great leader you must be a student first, the day you become the teacher and no longer the student is the same day you cease to be a leader anymore. True leaders never ask someone to do something that they themselves are not willing to do also. It is never too late to be a leader, all we need to do is one simple thing make a choice.

With that choice lies in your hand the option of unlimited possibilities. Be positive, Be real and live your life In The Zone.
