Introduction

You can be a leader-if you really want to be. Some people think leadership is for a chosen few. I couldn't disagree more. The fact is that anyone can become a leader-if that person really wants to be a leader.

Think about people you know and you'll be able to name a few folks who seem to just naturally-or supernaturally-have an abundance of the stuff leadership requires. They're organized. They're focused. They're able to gather people around a cause and get things done. You look at them and think, "Those people are born leaders." And you're half right. They have been born-but they weren't born as leaders. The skills that make them leaders are skills they've learned along the way.

We're all born into this world naked and helpless. We can't do the first thing for ourselves. There was a time you didn't know how to do anything you can now do. There was a time you couldn't dress yourself. You couldn't feed yourself. You couldn't read this book.

Now you've mastered those skills and many, many more.

You can master the skills it takes to be a leader, too. You can learn to be organized. To manage yourself and others. To be a model. They're all learned behaviors.

You see, leadership isn't about titles or paychecks or what's on your business card. You don't have to be the head of a huge ministry to be a leader. If you're influencing others, you're a leader.

Growing in your leadership abilities is an investment-one that will pay dividends your entire life.

Ready to grow in your leadership? You can do it, you know!
