Roar like a lion. 


An adult male lion’s roar can be heard up to 8 km (5 miles) away. Think to yourself, how louder they would be roaring if we listened from close.

Don’t panic, I won’t tell you, if you want to be a leader, you have to shout like a lion so that your voice reaches 8 km away. I am not that dumb. We cannot shout so loudly but we can do such a good job, our name travels 80 km. We can create the same impact by performing extraordinarily.

How is your performance, ordinary or extraordinary? Have you ever promised enough but failed to deliver the same? Do you promise a little but deliver much more than as promised? Does your performance have the charisma to inspire and influence others? Have you ever heard someone say, I want to be like you? Has anyone ever suggested others to be like you? Have you become that example with whom usually people compare?

Well! Roaring means performing well. This is what I mean to say. By looking at your performance, people should know, there is such a person in such a distance, who is wonderful. Just as the voice of a lion goes far and wide, the work of a leader also goes far and wide, making him very appreciative. People come to know, there is a lion-like leader in this area.

The performance of a good leader has a different spark in it, which sets him apart from the rest. You should perform in such a way; it creates a benchmark in the organization. The entire organization compares other’s performance with yours. When your performance becomes a touchstone, you become ideal. Once you achieve that level of success, people consider you as the king of the organization.

Not just for stardom and fame, a leader must perform well to inspire his team. Seeing that, his squad gets excited and tries to be like him. Once they clap for you, they too will desire to listen to those claps for themselves. If there is no such leader around you, be the one and inspire others because, seeing an adult lion, the cubs also want to be like him and start roaring from the beginning. A strong leader in every organization is much needed. Be the one and let your inner strength get a way to come into the limelight because your roar reminds other cubs to practice roaring like you. So, roar like hell.
