Leadership from A Kid's Point Of View (Lucky or Skillful?)

A Saturday Salutation Guest Post

Sebastian Hurt, Age 7

Sebastian is my son, and a First Grader. He loves Jiu Jitsu, beyblades, and climbing new mountains. After much dinner table conversation on leadership and posts, he asked to write his own. I served only as typist. What a fantastic conversation.

He was troubled with all the stories from history and the Bible where people seemed to land into leadership positions and not handle it well. When listening to me talking, he said, “mom, all that advice is good, but sometimes people become leaders because they are lucky.”

 He started with thoughts on leadership “by chance” or ” by luck.” Here is where he landed.

Let’s grow leaders! Game on.

I have an intrigued heart and excited mind open to thoughts from your youth and children and would be happy to talk with them and promote their ideas. Please consider sending my way as a future Saturday Salutation (see below for a few others).

Seb’s Leadership Theory

Sometimes it’s part of leadership how you are born.

It’s not always fair and I don’t approve of it either.

You cannot be a good leader without proving yourself.

The only thing you need to be a leader is to show your mind and courage.

I will tell you about the four powers of leadership, both good and bad.

Mind: The mind can help you in your journey for leadership if you have calmness

Power: Power can be destructive and creative chose which one is yours

Sacrifice:: To be a perfect leader you must sacrifice your own time for your followers

Willingness: You must have the will to give your all

P.S . BOUYAA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
