How Can A Student Become A Better Leader?
BY LINDA ANDERSON
As great leaders have always said, students are the future of a nation. Today’s students are tomorrow’s leaders, industrialists, entrepreneurs and law makers. Thus, it is important that a student inculcates certain qualities which can help them pave their way to success. Most students are inspired by huge industrialists and their success. Here are the qualities that a student must have in order to become an industrialist.
Failure is the pillar of success. The difference between common people and successful people is that the latter dare to look failure in the eye and refuse to let it control their lives. Most of the huge industrialists who have succeeded in their business have gone through plenty of failure, rough patches, despair and sometimes, even utter poverty and they never gave up. Don’t be afraid of failure. Instead if you persevere and keep working towards your aim, success is bound to come. It is easy to give up, but that will not help your build an empire! Take failure and rough patches in your stride and use them as steps for your success. Learn from your mistakes and move on.
There is no shortcut to success. It can be achieved only through immense hard work and sacrifice. Therefore, if you are planning on becoming an industrialist, prepare yourself for quite a bit of struggle. While you are working sixteen hours a day, your peers might be enjoying vibrant lives after only ten hours of office and taking exciting trips around the world. You might not even get to spend the holidays with your loved ones or you might be burning the midnight oil regularly, but success does come with a price! Keep working and do not get distracted by the apparently easier lives that others are leading. One day all of your sacrifices will yield results and establish your name as a successful industrialist and that can be done only with unrelenting hard work.
Even though highly underrated, an industrialist needs to be caring and compassionate towards employees, towards family, friends and even towards the planet. You might have unending passion for your business, but it is your compassion for your employees and workers which will help you go the distance with your business. If your workers are happy it will reflect on your company’s productivity. Compensate them well for their services. Even if you work the whole night, make sure their work schedules are humane and they get to spend time with their families. If possible, offer them and their families decent health insurance. It has been seen that companies with higher retention of employees succeed better in the long run.
You cannot go far in life or business without honesty. It is true that some people do gain success by dishonest means, cheating their customers, but this is only momentary. Real and long-lasting success can be achieved only if you are honest to your trade. Whether you are selling heavy machinery or Linear Actuators, quality of your products will go a long way in establishing your name as a trusted brand. Without your customers’ trust, you cannot succeed in the industry. Even though profit is the main aim, do not forget honesty or compromise with quality in your quest for money.
If you wish to establish yourself an industrialist, it is important that you inculcate these qualities in your everyday life. Sometimes, it is going to get tough, but these things will help you overcome any hindrances that come your way.
