A leader requires a strong will power. Strong will power enables the leader to develop good habits essential for successful leadership. Initially, a leader has to consciously condition his mind and thought process to look at things in a positive manner with optimism, by the exercise of his will power. He must look at the brighter side of the problems.
We are all familiar with the saying that “where there is a will, there is a way”.  An individual with an iron will, will have indomitable determination. He will have the stamina to stick to his decision and task, no matter what odds are there. Nothing will deter the strong-willed individual from his or her chosen mission. Strong will power will invest the leader with strong resoluteness, firmness and decisiveness. There will be no wavering, no vacillation, no  ‘ifs’ and ‘buts’ and no hankering. Will power enables the leader to assert himself, to take the plunge to accept challenges, to be bold and enterprising. It alone can enable you to persist and hold on, when everything appears lost.



Self condition is the precondition for effective leadership and initiation. Initiative and leadership are associated, because leadership is essential for attainment of success and Initiative is the very foundation upon which this necessary quality of leadership is built.
What is the initiative ?
It is that exceedingly rare quality that prompts and impels – a person to do that which ought to be done “without being told to do it”. Elbert Hubbard expressed himself on the subject of Initiative in this words:
The world bestow its big prizes , both in money and honour for one thing and that is initiative.
What is initiative ? ”It is doing the right things without being told to do it”.
Yes, one of the peculiarities of leadership is the fact that it is never found in those who have not acquired the habit of taking the initiative. Leadership is something that you must invite yourself into; it will never thrust itself upon you.
If you will carefully analyze all leaders whom you know, you will see that they not only exercised Initiative, but they went about their work with a definite purpose in mind with full confidence.
A great philosopher once said : “Initiative is the passkey that opens the door to opportunity.”
All people may be placed in one or other of two general classes. One is known as leaders and the other as followers. Not often do the “followers” achieve noteworthy success, and never succeeded until they break away from the ranks of the “follower” and become “leaders”.


Personality Development


Personality is the sum total of ways in which an individual reacts and interacts with others. Or Personality is generally defined as the deeply ingrained and relatively enduring patterns of thought, feeling and behavior. In fact, when one refers to personality, it generally implies to all what is unique about an individual, the characteristics that makes one stand out in a crowd.

Personalities is the sum total of individual’s Psychological traits, characteristics, motives, habits, attitudes, beliefs and outlooks.
Personality determinants :
Heredity : Heredity refers to those factors that were determined at conception. Physical structure, facial attractiveness, gender, temperament, muscle composition and reflexes, energy level, and biological rhythms are characteristics that are generally considered to be either completely or substantially influenced by who your parents were, that is by their biological, physiological and inherent psychological make up.

Environment : The environmental factors that exert pressures on our personality formation are the culture in which we are raised, our early conditioning, the norms among our family, friends and social groups, and other influences that we experience. The environment to which we are exposed plays a substantial role in shaping our personalities.

Situation : A third factor, the situation, influences the effects of heredity and environment on personality. An individual’s personality although generally stable and consistent, does change in different situations. The varying demand of different situation calls forth different aspects of one’s personality. We should not therefore look upon personality patterns in isolation.
1. Subconscious Programming :
Most of us sometimes get programmed / conditioned by a wrong messages that “ donot do that”, “don’t take the risk”, “you can not do that” you are not good in …and so on…..
You can imagine the bad effect such message can have on any person.

Fig- I : Subconscious Mind Programming           Our Conscious Mind is like a watch man. And the Subconscious Mind is a store of all the previously programmed or conditioned information / knowledge/ believes. Now programming personality means putting positive believes/ information into the store with out the knowledge of the watchman (conscious mind).

Suppose you tell yourself that “you are good at Public Speaking”. And the store has stored based on peoples comments and experience that “you are poor in communication” “you can not speak well in public”, “you don’t have an impressive body language” …..
The watch man sees your sentence and compares it with the knowledge in its store and says “this information is wrong”. The watchman throws the new information away. He does not allow the new positive information into the store. This is the fundamental difficulty in changing personality & behavior of a person.




Mind programming is necessary for success in life. Mind programming means programming our mind for positivity, success, health and happiness. It eliminates the negativity within our subconscious mind and impresses upon positivity which is the most important for achieving success and happiness. Five important mind programming techniques are : 
PRAYER is the formulation of an idea concerning something positive we wish to accomplish. Prayer is the soul’s sincere desire. Your desire is your prayer. It comes out of your deepest needs, and it reveals the things you want in life.
Blessed are they that hunger and thirst after righteousness ; for they shall be filled.
That is the real nature of prayer, the effective expression of life’s hunger and thirst for peace, harmony, health, joy, and all the other blessings of life.

The dreamers are the saviours of the world. As the visible world is sustained by the invisible, so men, through all their trials and sins and sordid vocations, are nourished by the beautiful visions of their solitary dreamers; it cannot let their ideals fade and die; it lives in them; it knows them as they Realities which it shall one day see and know.
Composer, sculptor, painter, poet, prophet, sage, these are the makers of the after-world, the architects of heaven. The world is beautiful because they have lived; without them, laboring humanity would perish. 

He who cherished a beautiful vision, a lofty ideal in his heart, will one day realize it. Columbus cherished a vision of another world, and he discovered it; Copernicus fostered the vision of a multiplicity of worlds and a wider universe, and he revealed it; Buddha beheld the vision of a spiritual world of stainless beauty and perfect peace and he entered into it.
Cherish your visions; cherish your ideals; cherish the music that stirs in your heart, the beauty that forms in your mind, the loveliness that drapes your purest thoughts, for out of them will grow all delightful conditions, all, heavenly environment; of these, if you but remain true to them, your world will at last be built.



A man has to learn that he cannot command things, but that he can command himself;  that he can not coerce the wills of others, but that he can mold and master his won will:  and things serve him who serves Truth;  people seek guidance of him who is master of himself.
A man is literally what he thinks.
A man is not rightly conditioned until he is happy, healthy, and prosperous being; and happiness, health, and prosperity are the result of a harmonious adjustment of the inner with outer of the man with his surroundings.
A man sooner or later discovers that he is the master-gardener of his soul, the director of his life.
Above all be of single aim; have a legitimate and useful purpose, and devote yourself unreservedly to it.
All that you accomplish or fail to accomplish with your life is the direct  result of your thoughts.
As in the rankest soil the most beautiful flowers are grown, so in the dark soil of poverty the choicest flowers of humanity have developed and bloomed.
Circumstances do not make the man, they just reveal him.



The divinity that shapes our ends is in ourselves …. All that a man achieves or fails to achieve is the direct result of his own thoughts.
                                              ….James Lane Allen
Let a man strive to purify his thoughts. What a man thinketh, that is he; this is the eternal mystery. Dwelling within his Self with thoughts serene, he will obtain imperishable happiness. Man becomes that of which he thinks.
                                           …… Upanishads

There is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so.
                                       …. William Shakespeare
All that a man does outwardly is but the expression and completion of his inward thought. To work effectively, he must think clearly; to act nobly, he must think nobly.
                                      ….. William E. Channing 
Thoughts Are Living Things 
Thoughts are living things. A thought is as much solid as a piece of stone. We may cease to be, but our thoughts can never die.
Every change in thought is accompanied by vibration of its matter (mental). Thought as force needs a special kind of subtle matter in its working.
The stronger the thoughts, the earlier the fructification. Thought is focussed and given a particular direction and, in the degree that thought is thus focussed and given direction, it is effective in the work it is sent out to accomplish.



The jack-of-all-trades seldom accomplishes much at any trade. Life is so complex, and there are so many ways of dissipating energy unprofitably, that the habit of concentrated effort must be formed and adhered to, by all who would succeed.                                                  
Power is based upon organized effort or energy. Energy cannot be organized without the habit of concentration of all the faculties on one thing at a time. An ordinary magnifying glass may be used to so focus the rays of the sun that they will burn a hole in a board in a few minutes. Those same rays will not even heat the board until they are concentrated on one spot.                                                   
The human mind is something like a magnifying glass, because it is the medium through which all the faculties of the brain may be brought together and made to function, in coordinated formation, just as the rays of the sun may be focused on one spot with the aid of that glass.

It is worth considering that all the outstandingly successful people in all walks of life concentrated the major portion of their thoughts and efforts upon some one definite purpose, objective, or chief aim.  
Witness the impressive list of men who created and lead American earlier history, whose success was due to their having acquired and practiced the habit of concentration :  



No one ever accomplished anything, never created anything, never built any plan or developed a definite chief aim without the use of imagination! Everything ever created or built, was first, mentally visional through imagination.
Years before it became a reality, the late John Wanamaker saw in his imagination, in practically all of its details, the gigantic business that for so many years bore his name. Despite the fact that he was then, without the capital to create such a business, he managed to get it and lived to see the business he had dreamed of in his mind become a splendid reality.
In the workshop of the imagination, one may take old, well-known ideas of concepts, or parts of ideas, and combine them with still other old ideas or parts of ideas, and out of this combination create that which seems to be new. This process is the major principle of all invention.
One may have a definite chief aim and a plan for achieving it; may possess self-confidence in abundance; may have a highly developed habit of saving, and both initiative and leadership in abundance. But if the element of imagination is missing, these other qualities will be held useless, because where will be no driving force to shape the use of these qualities. In the workshop of the imagination, all plans are created, and without such plans, no achievement is possible except by mere accident.
Witness the manner in which the imagination can be used as both the beginning and the end of successful plans: Clarence Saunders, who created the well-known chain of Piggly Wiggly supermarkets, conceived the idea on which the stores were based, or rather borrowed it, from the cafeteria restaurant system. While working as a grocer’s helper, Mr. Saunders went into a cafeteria for lunch. Standing in line, waiting for his turn at the food counters, the wheels of his imagination began to turn, and he reasoned, to himself, something like this : “people seem to like to stand in line and help themselves. Moreover, I see that more people can be served this way, with fewer sales person. Why would it not be a good idea to introduce this plan in the grocery business, so people could come in, wander around with a basket, pick up what they wanted, and pay on the way out?” Then and there with that bit of elementary ‘imagining’, Mr. Saunders sowed the seed of n idea which later became the Piggy-Wiggly stores system and made him a multimillionaire in the bargain.
“Ideas” are the most profitable products of the human mind, and they are all created in the imagination. The old five-and-ten cent store system that served the nation so well for so many years was the results of imagination. The system was created by F.W. Woolworth, and it happened in this way : Woolworth was working as a salesman in a retail store. The owner of the store complained that he had a considerable amount of old, un-sellable merchandise on hand that was in the way, and was about to throw some of it into the trash box to be consigned to the furnace, when Woolworth’s imagination began to function.
