Making of a Leader

That’s the leader. Who is the guy who can keep his emotions under check and see what is right for the organization? For the country? for the world? Apply that at all levels. For your family!
So, if your mind is out of control, you become agitated, you are agitated, you can’t think, you can’t think, You can’t act.

This is called objectivity- Objectivity is not letting the mind’s agitation disturb your action.
Learn this word today. If you want to be a manager, you have to learn to be objective in life.
You are completely involved. Caught up. Can’t think.
See- In the leadership session I do, one of the powerful examples I give, I am giving here today in this context, Is this two examples; What is a leader, what’s not a leader. So- You know the Titanic sank, right? – You know why it sank? Why did it sink? Fire- It hit an iceberg. Why did it hit the iceberg, do you know? It was going too fast! You know that-It’s a true story – read it- and you know why it was going too fast? Because the captain- see what happens is, if you are going too fast in the night, even the guy who is on the deck, he can’t see the ice, even if he sees the iceberg, it such a huge ship, you can’t turn in time to avoid it. If you are too fast. Common sense, Right?
Why was he going too fast? The captain wanted to break the speed record from England to America!
Is this a leader? So, you let your personal desire come in the way of your obligation.
That’s the problem. That’s what I mean self-management.
And on the other hand, you see, you know the miracle on the Hudson, right? Happened a few years ago. There was a movie made on it recently. So they have gone on the top of the sky and both their engines are gone; You know that- See when you, when you are flying sometimes it happens, one engine goes because of the geese. This time both the engines went. Very rare- almost never happened before.
Can you imagine you are up in the sky, both the engines gone? What do you do? And you should see that- not see- Hear the conversation between the air traffic and the captain. The air traffic guys are more excited! Can you come back to- can you come back to LaGuardia? LaGuardia. No! And he is cool! can’t do that! Can you go to Newark? Can you go to Newark? We will Play Newark? Can’t do that! Finally, they are like what can you do man?
I am going down into the Hudson. Perfect Landing!
So, It’s not that he doesn’t care about his life, his family!
But you have got to keep that under control. Everybody else excited. That’s the leader. Who is the guy who can keep his emotions under check and see what is right for the organization? For the country? for the world? Apply that at all levels. For your family!
So, if your mind is out of control, you become agitated, you are agitated, you can’t think, you can’t think, You can’t act.
