“Careful mentoring and right ambition together would make great leaders”

Johnson George

Beliefs and thoughts control the world.  It was so in the past, is in the present and continues to be so in the future.  What you believe and think so you will be.  If you believe you can do something you will do it.  If you believe you cannot, even if you try you would fail.  Why this is so?  It’s very difficult to answer this question.  God has created the world to move on belief. 

Great legacies of faith: In the Holy Bible one of the greatest adventurous traveller and apostle of Jesus Christ, St Paul says, “I can do all things ….”  I don’t know any bolder statement than this from anyone in history.  As he believed he could accomplish more than anybody in history in regard to legacy and followers.  He travelled between Europe and Asia not less than four times through the stormy Mediterranean, moved through wild inner lands of Asia Minor (now Turkey), Galatia, Phrygia, Bithinya, inland Asia like Antioch, Damascus, and in Europe, Greece, Macedonia, Philippi, Corinth, Thessalonica, Rome and many other and possibly Spain, and so on!   He has done all these things not when there were modern travelling facilities; he virtually had no such facilities.

You travel throughout the world; you will not fail to see some institution or church under the name ‘St. Paul’s’.  Then you listen to a Christian sermon whether it may be from a TV channel, or public meeting or church, one in every three sermon will have St. Paul’s name mentioned! When you know about this man you will certainly exclaim, ‘what a legacy!’

What is the actual reason behind all these?  I am hundred per cent assured that it was his rock solid belief, “I can do…” that made him the St. Paul’.  His is the most powerful positive statement I have ever heard.  You believe and you will.  You doubt and you cannot.  There is a sage statement, “you cannot go beyond your belief.”  St. Paul had such a faith because he believed in a God who is all powerful and controls the universe above every natural and human power.  He was fearless for he believed the one who only can give and take life.  He said towards the end of his life, “I know in whom I have believed…”

Thoughts that rule the world: Belief gives birth to thoughts and thoughts rule the world.  We human beings are endowed with the faculty to think, reason and reflect.  As some has said everything is made twice; once in man’s thought and then the actual making. Thinkers change the world.  This tells us that a leader must be a man of thoughts.  S/he must think well enough and well in advance.  You think for a moment, who were behind the progressive movement of the world?  Thinkers, in fact, thinking leaders. 

Leaders are made and not born: The foundation for healthy life, growth and service of any society is an effective leadership programme.  This leadership programme should recognise and develop the potential of people and promote them to leadership. Careful mentoring and right ambition together would make great leaders.  However, so many in the society ascribe the leadership to certain people and they become onlookers.  This is one of myths that need correction.

One of the prominent figures in leadership development, Warren G. Bennis states, “The most dangerous leadership myth is that leaders are born-that there is a genetic factor to leadership.  Myth asserts that people simply either have certain charismatic qualities or not.  That’s nonsense; in fact, the opposite is true.  Leaders are made rather than born.”  Our experience with people is in total agreement with Bennis: leadership characteristics can be developed. 

One can be a better leader by conscious efforts.  It is true that some leadership characteristics show up very early in life, but it is also true that people often can’t predict who will become the great leaders.  Some people come into the world endowed with self-confidence and a keen intellect.  That is clearly an advantage.  But nearly all people are made better leaders from specific developmental activities. Leaders are a lot more ‘made’ than they are ‘born’.  Leadership potential can be developed.  With effort and practice, you can move beyond the skills you are born with to be an excellent leader.

The great leaders of the world knew this.  Philip of Macedonia not only prepared and handed over to Alexander an army to conquer the world, he trained Alexander under one of the best of the teachers the world has had, Aristotle. This training made Alexander the greatest war strategist the world has ever seen.  

Lord Jesus Christ selected twelve young individuals and trained them to preach his gospel to the world. St. Paul trained many youngsters and had serious watch over their leadership development.  His letters to Timothy and Titus are the best attestations in the world to show a leaders plan for the next generation.

Listen to your inner voice that tells ‘you must grow’.  You cannot stand in the same place forever.  You must move on.  There is a saying like this, “Shoot for the moon, you will end up among the stars.”  Think big, go higher, and keep your aspirations as high as you can.  You need serious thinking.  You need worthwhile reflection on the kind of leadership you want to exercise.  You need development in leadership to influence others in the right direction.
