He who thinketh he leadeth and hath no one following him is only taking a walk, to be a leader, one must have a follower, to have followers you must be trusted,

If you think that you are a leader, then ask yourself these questions.

How do people see me?

Do they believe in me?

Have I made a positive impact on their lives?

Have I fought for them?

Do my character cheer them up?”

Have I protected their lives?

Have I alleviated their problem?

If your answer is yes; you are a leader and I urge to ride on, but it is no’ remove that name “a leader” from your brain and

come out of your shell because you’re wearing an oversize cloth. If God has given you the zeal to become a leader more

grease to you elbows, I know followers will automatically come to you, when people see your fruit, they will like to plug from it.
