Are you Thinking Like a Leader?

Think like a leader. You might say, I have never been a leader, I'm learning now, so how would I know? Well, it's quite simple. If you have ever worked for someone else then you have some concept of how a leader thinks. Simply put yourself in their position and ask yourself what would you do. For starters, leaders think in terms of multiplication and so should you. Imagine if you owned a company and needed something done, would you want one, very talented person with only 24 hours per day to get the job done or would you prefer ten talented people working together to get it done. I hope you would choose the latter. That's thinking as a leader and in multiplication.  

Leaders also think about solutions to problems in positive ways. They do not see lack as a limitation but a challenge that needs to be overcome. Thomas Edison, one of the world’s greatest inventors knew a thing or two about multiplication and failures. He engaged in ten thousand experiments before inventing the incandescent light bulb. When asked about his failures, he once stated, "I am not discouraged, because every wrong attempt discarded is another step forward." Leaders stay positive under pressure and so should you. Jettison the thoughts common to laborers and mentally become the leader you feel destined to be.
