ThisI Believe

Oneof Warren Bennis’ quotes on leadership states “It is the capacityto develop and improve their skills that distinguish leaders fromfollowers.” Every day is contemplate upon that statement and I getthe conviction that to become who I set out to be, I have to takecharge of my life. I have to stand up against my fears and developthe best strategy that would see me through to that place that Ibelieve I am meant to reach. As a person, I have developed a personalstrategy to concur the world and become myself. My strategy involvedidentifying a few things in my life and working towards making thembetter. As a company, I view myself as a company that is self-reliantand can determine its own destiny through proper management, which,of course, comes from me. I use the SWOT analysis as a basis for mystrategy through life. In my SWOT analysis, I have identified mystrengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and finally threats. I remainas optimistic as the SWOT model itself by prioritizing my strengthsand letting my weaknesses and threats come last.

Fromthe perspective of strength, I group my abilities such as skills andtalents and identify ways that I can improve them to become a betterman. I believe that my strengths are God given and that is the reasonI can never let anybody demoralize me or make me feel less capable. Ibelieve that I am a leader and that was born to lead, and that iswhat carries me through the day. I take every opportunity there is tosharpen my skills in leadership and show people that I am capable.Whenever I do something, I do it to the best of my abilities so thatI can show others what I am made of. I put all efforts into what I dobecause I believe that my work is meant to be a prototype for othersto follow. I strongly believe in myself, but I also bend low enoughto listen to counsel from others.

Likeevery person, I have my weaknesses. For instance, sometimes I getdemoralized and feel like giving up when something does not work outlike I planned. Even though I repeat, but the morale is slightlylowered. When that happens, I take a deep breath and picture myselfas the person I always want to be in future. When the moment ofself-reflection is over, I am refreshed and my energy is rejuvenatedto accomplish whatever I was doing. I read a lot about people whohave accomplished much like Bill Gates and I also research and seekadvice on matters I feel am not so good at. I seek partnerships withmore competent people in fields I have less knowledge in order tolearn.

Opportunitiescome to everyone and am not exempted. Every opportunity that comes myway is a chance to prove myself to me. So I do my best and when amdone, I have no regrets. I never believe in regrets and criticismnever kills my morale. However, I take time to listen to criticismand do my own analysis into it to determine its authenticity. Ibelieve in being strong and so I never break or show signs ofweakness in public.

Threatslike opportunities exist everywhere. My threats are financial most ofthe time and to concur that, I work hard every day. I believe thatRome was never built in one day and that little efforts amount tosomething big after some time.
