Is it right to believe that opportunities are everywhere? My guess would be “Yes”.
I would not be lying if I said that anybody can find the perfect opportunity, should they seek it. The difficult phase is determining whether a person possesses the talents needed for that “perfect” opportunity. Understanding what is asked of us is simple enough. The question is: do we have it?
Yes, it is impossible to possess every skill in the world. There is no way to be qualified for every single job available on Earth. I know that, and that is not my purpose here. However, there must be a quality that somehow every task, be it professionally or personally, seeks. There surely must be attributes that need to be found in every person who wishes to be successful. And true enough, there are a lot of them. In order to be great, you have to be wise. You also have to have common sense. It would also be great if you were humane. There are so many that enumerating them all would fill up the space, so I have decided to focus on a quality that might seem so obvious but is so hard to attain: Leadership.
Though certainly as important as the other traits, I believe that leadership is just a little bit harder to attain than most of the qualities mentioned above. And even after attainment, it just seems to be a bit harder to master and maintain. I do not mean to belittle the importance of other qualities, but being a good leader demands so much more from a person. Though people say all the time that a leader is born, I find that hard to believe.
Leaders evolve through experience. They endure different circumstances that form the way they think. They confront challenges that set in stone their virtues. For some, the idea of undergoing a leadership development course is a worthwhile investment. Prospective leaders accept the demands that come with being a leader that they consider leadership development as a requirement. Executives with years of experience even attend Executive Leadership Development Programs to further their skills.
Sure, there are persons who just have the knack for being a leader; who show good leadership potential. But until they have that leadership skill development, then their potentials are just that. There is still no substitute for experience.
