If you think you’re leading and no one is following you, then you’re only taking a walk. – Afghan Proverb
If you think that you are in a leading position you will witness that some of the people are following you. Or else, there is a possibility that you are not even leading in the first place. Instead of leading, you are just walking.
So, if you want people to follow you, you have to make sure that you have the required leading skills. Well, leading means you are showing the way from the front.
It is the basic difference between a boss and a leader. The boss will always give you orders to do your work. But a leader will always lead you from the front. He or she will advise you on how to do your work instead of pointing out your mistakes. Hence, the best option for you is to become a leader instead of becoming a boss.
In case if anyone is not following you there is a possibility that you are missing some points. For instance, maybe your honesty and integrity are not up to the mark.
Also, there is a possibility that you are lacking the confidence that a leader must-have. So, you have to work on these skills first. After that people will start considering you as a leader and eventually, they will start following you as well. And once they start following you, you can consider that you have achieved the level of a leader.
So, try to polish your leading skills and you will witness success in life. Apart from that, it will also bring you a lot of respect from various people. And, if you can achieve respect in your life it will help you to get peace and happiness. Hence, try to be a good leader, instead of a good boss.
