Personal Statement: Myself As A Leader

Improved Essays
I have always considered myself a leader especially because of the environment I grew up in. The ability to become a leader amongst my friends, family, and my organization are all attributed to the choices and effects on other people that I had growing up. When it comes to my organization I have no choice but to be a leader, you can’t just settle for being a manager because people may not truly respect you. As a leader in my organization, I am able to influence not only my supervisors, athletes, as well as my friends. When it comes to influencing my supervisors, I am the connection between the athletes on the team and them because I am in closer age.

I don’t do the things I do to be praised for it, but it’s nice to see people recognize the good work you are doing. When you’re continuously doing good things and aren’t being praised for it you tend to feel unappreciated and there aren’t many much worse feelings. The thing only thing that truly bothers me with being praised is when it isn’t genuine. Where I come from we call it fake love. Fake love is when people pretend to be interested and happy in what you are doing when in reality they are envious and jealous and don’t want to see you do well. It isn’t good to find out people have been talking ill about you being your back and pretending they are proud of everything you are doing behind your back. You can always who is more genuine in their praises because you read most people emotions on their face. I am always happy for everyone’s success unless they truly didn’t earn it the way they should have. Everyone deserves to be the best they can be in life but you have to truly work for it. There is nothing more disappointing to seeing things handled to people and they truly have no backstory of earning things. How do you truly measure success if you have never failed? You can be handed success, it’s earned not given. If you are catapulted into a successful situation or business, you have to find ways to get better and enhance the vision of the person that passed things on you to you.

My first reaction to reading “Servant Leadership is love in action” was what exactly does that mean. Shortly after before reading on I developed my own thoughts on it and realized that you can’t truly succeed at being a leader if you do not love what you do. I had to read on to understand the meaning

    Another negative outcome can be having envy of others when they are more successful than you are. According to Mead,“ We tend to regard the success of people close at hand , within our small groups ,as a threat (Mead,Lines 6-7).” This quote explains that we envy people who are more or as successful as we are.

This saying says that Americans help each other's thinking that they will get repaid by being successful. People don't understand that being envious of others, will only worsen…

    Rejection can have really adverse effects on people, so the psychological immune system kicks in to tune out this negativity because its job is to preserve a positive outlook. In following this process, it can be concluded that a person can be happy because they live without rejection and with acceptance. This only further enforces the point that people’s happiness partially depends on their acceptance from others. It is said that, “Being rejected by a large and diverse group of people is a demoralizing experience because it is so thoroughly unambiguous” (Gilbert 134). This demonstrates that, similar to how Solomon describes wanting to be accepted by others was a priority in achieving happiness, when people are rejected by others, they experience decreased happiness.…

At their worst (pit side), the Helper is martyr-like, indirect, manipulative, possessive, hysterical, overly accommodating, overly demonstrative”. (Ibid.) The Helper seem love-oriented but the love is imbalanced toward the other with an incomplete self love which allows reciprocity of both power and caregiving. These negative qualities keep the Helper types from being a true giver be-cause they expect to be appreciated for the giving and can be very hurt when they are taken for granted which they often are.…

    Be yourself – Perhaps this is the hardest of all the fundamentals because people are scared of showing their true colors and being rejected for them. It’s much easier to be rejected for bwing somebody else than it is for being yourself. All the traveleing I’ve done, I’ve learned to just be myself, there are so many people out there, somebody is going to like me for me, I just have to be wiling to push my boundaries and put myself out there.

It is a reason why they are admired. Also, in general, people think that volunteering is sometimes tiring and they cannot figure out the point to do. However, there are people who are willing to do this kind of troublesome work and then, they are admired because they do what some people do not prefer to do.…
