There is such a story about a small candle. A man took a small burning candle and began to climb up the stairs. Candle asked him: where are you taking me, I'm so small? The man answered: it's all right, do not worry. He went up to the top of the lighthouse, and lit the light of the lighthouse.
People often tell themselves that they are small, they can't get and do anything. In every person there is a huge potential to achieve great goals. It's like in this story, a little candle lit a huge beacon. The only problem is that this potential is hidden and man himself is unable to discover it.
The leader will always help a person to discover his potential, light a light in him and that light will inspire that person to achieve amazing results in his life.

Before I begin studding leadership, I was in business about 15 years. All this years I was fully involved in all areas of my business. I knew everything about what my employees do. I felt stress and cannot relax, because I was warring about my business, I was control everything and everyone. I wanted that my business grow. I was not exactly trust to my employees, because I thought that they are not the same interested in growing my business as I am. In the other hand, I saw other companies where everything was opposite. I decided to find out why. Leadership was an answer! I understood that leadership is not about me. It is not about my own accomplishments. Leadership is built by serving other people, by helping then to grow. As a leader you don’t need to have answers to all questions, you don’t need to be ideal. You have to have right people in right places. You have to learn how to find leaders in your team, teach them and show them how to be a leader.
As a leader you always have to know, that leadership is not about perfection, it‘s about example. Add to your daily vocabulary these 10 positive phrases and use then everyday:
• I'm sorry!
• I'm wrong!
• You can do it!
• I believe in you!
• I'm proud of you!
• Thank you!
• I need you!
• I trust you!
• I respect you!
• I love you!
You must separate “Who you are” with “What you do”. Leadership it is not about you. It is that, what you can give for other people.
People want from you three things:
1. Love them;
2. Show them hope;
3. Believe in them.
