Another factor that George believes can provide better leaders is from life stories. This is leadership’s backbone. As George claims to have researched and interviewed numerous great leaders, he is not surprised to have discovered that almost all interviewers admitted to having undergone extreme hardship or folly. But despite that, their experience and journey is what got them to success. Though it is not necessarily the events a person does, the decisions one chooses to make will justly reflect on and create the story of one’s life. Leadership comes in correlation with serving a purpose. If there is no enjoyment or desire to lead at something, then there is no true leadership. Being a leader means to be true to oneself and to be able to fight through the most difficult hardships. In reality, there will be many obstacles a leader will undergo that will test his or her strengths and truly separate the true leaders from the incompetent. Once such an event occurs, the situation will either make a person stronger or discourage them to quit. A true leader would be able to endure adversity and would not be willing to give up on his or her passion. If a person does happen to be undergoing hardship however and does not break, one typically develops into a much stronger and inspired person. Leadership is an interesting thing. To an extent, I feel as though I am a leader. I like being a motivator and knowing that I can change a person’s life by my guidance. However, I know there is always room for improvement. I believe the power to influence a group of people or even one person is an immense gift. Because I have a great desire to make a difference, my drive is what gets me to accomplish as much as I have.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
