I have a question about to be a good leader. I want to be the best positive leader. But the down is that you will be made fun of if you are tring to be a positive leader. A positive leader in my High school is doing drugs. A postive leader to other kids in my school does drugs and gets drunk every weekend. So how do you become a good positive leader to people and tell them not to do the drugs and stuff?
Awesome question. First of all, let me point out an important fact. These people in your school that are doing drugs and getting drunk might be leaders to some, but they certainly aren’t positive leaders.
A positive leader is someone who teaches you how to reach your goals, and encourages you to be your best. Just as important, a leader leads by example. If I encourage you to do well in school but I’m flunking three classes and don’t care, how much weight does my advice carry? Probably not much! That’s why we’ve all heard that actions speak louder than words. So my challenge to you is this: Continue making good decisions – one’s that will help you reach your goals in life. There will always be peer pressure, and there may always be people who make fun of good leaders. But remember this, it’s easy to do the wrong thing. It takes strength and discipline to do the right thing. Others will see your example and begin to follow.
