To become a leader, you don’t necessarily have to be a CEO or an elected official. You have to be someone whom others want to follow consistently for new ideas and trends. A fancy title might make that possible temporarily, but you as a true leader can inspire steadfast loyalty by incorporating these 5 essentials.

1. Practice things you’re uncomfortable with

A majority of you willing to become a leader probably know what it takes to be one, but what’s stopping you from getting there right now is your fear of certain things: things that might include building stronger relationships, becoming a better spokesperson or pulling yourself out of your zone of comfort. Instead of running away from these things, start practicing them with either your friend or a mentor. All such things that make you uncomfortable will eventually make you stronger once you’ve achieved them.

2. Start believing you’re a leader

You often find yourself on the negative side of everything, isn’t it? You’re not strong enough in this or good enough at that. But, knowing all this can be comforting because it means that you can’t fail. If you already know you’re not good at something, then you won’t be surprised when it doesn’t get done. To lead, it becomes essential for you to start believing that you’re a leader and then act like one. Watch yourself in the mirror every morning and tell yourself that you’re here to lead.

3. Be confident in every situation

Keep your confidence level elevated at all times. Imagine yourself saying “I don’t know”, with you looking down, your legs fidgeting and your thumbs twiddling. And now picture yourself saying “I don’t know”, looking into the eyes of the speaker with your head up and shoulders back. Not knowing about something is absolutely fine …… just be confident while saying that you don’t know it. A little lack of knowledge doesn’t mean that you start questioning your ability to lead.

4. Turn yourself into an expert

Possessing a certain amount of knowledge can instill great confidence in you and help you feel more leader-esque. While it’s true that you can manage without it, it’s only a matter of time before somebody with an extra charisma and knowledge comes along and clinches that title away from right under your feet. So in whatever department you are looking to lead, start enhancing your knowledge about it. It’ll definitely pay you off in the near future.

5. Take charge and be decisive

Picture this: You’re standing among your group of friends who are trying to decide what should be done on that night. Everyone is busy complaining, dawdling and ditching each other’s ideas until one of them finally takes the onus upon himself and says “Listen guys! We’re doing this tonight”. That person realized the situation required direction, stood up and took charge …… leader all the way. What you need to do is become that person.

So there you go! It’s time for you to lead.

Buddha was well known for his ability to respond to evil with good. There was a man who knew about his reputation and he traveled miles and miles and miles to test Buddha. When he arrived and stood before Buddha, he verbally abused him constantly; he insulted him; he challenged him; he did everything he could to offend Buddha.

Buddha was unmoved, he simply turned to the man and said, “May I ask you a question?”

The man responded with, “Well, what?”

Buddha said, “If someone offers you a gift and you decline to accept it, to whom then does it belong?”

The man said, “Then it belongs to the person who offered it.”

Buddha smiled, “That is correct. So if I decline to accept your abuse, does it not then still belong to you?”

The man was speechless and walked away.

Do you often find yourself wondering about the ways to ‘increase energy levels’ after work? Workplace sucks out every ounce of energy out of our being!!Doesn’t it? No wonder the question ‘what to do to gain energy after work?’ seems to loom over every working person now and then!! Here we are discussing the top 5 ways to increase energy!! Read and grasp!!

1.Never Skip Your breakfast; If possible make it as heavy as you can!

And we are not talking about fat; if possible make sure that you have a carbohydrate rich meal in the morning. Cereal grain makes for a great breakfast and in case you love fruits – and even if you don’t – have at least one fruit with things like nuts, grains, and oats, as they add fiber to your body which helps in keeping your energy levels up and strong!

2.Drink, Drink and Drink – as much Water as you can!

It is advised that you should drink at least 8 ounces of water daily!!That is about 1.9 liters!! Science states that our muscles want water to work properly and even a 1-3% loss leads to fatigue!! Hence, do drink as much as you can, and more so if your schedule also consists of exercise. Avoid drinking spirits and caffeine as they lead to loss of water.

3. Go for an energy-boosting snack.

It is commonly advised that one should go for sugar if they want to increase their energy levels, but this is not what one should do. This is because, sugar only increases energy for a small period, and once the blood sugar level drops, you are again where you started from. Hence, instead of eating something sweet, go for a protein rich snack like nuts, peanut butter or nonfat yogurt or other things which have antioxidants; they are good at boosting depleted energy levels.

4. Breathe deeply & do relaxation exercises.

It has normally been seen that majority of humans have shallow breathing which becomes one of the reasons that lead us towards low energy levels as it limits the amount of oxygen in our bodies, which is further needed to convert food into energy. Therefore, if you want to keep up your energy levels, start breathing consciously and exhale for about twice as long as you inhale. Try doing meditation or relaxation exercises (inhale, and relax parts of your body one by one as you exhale) for better results!

5. Make Sure You Have Sound Sleeping schedule.

Lack of a good sleep can upset body’s proper functioning which can also be the reason behind low energy levels. If possible make sure that you go to bed at the same time every day! And though the amount of sleep can vary from person to person, try to get at least 7-9 hours of sleep each night. So, if you feel tired all the time, increase your usual number of sleep-hours for improvement!!
