5 Leadership Lessons you should learn as early as possible

Leadership is a huge subject to be learned. We can never get it learned within just three months a semester. It takes our whole life to learn it. Even worse for some people because they tend to study everything about leadership; they join seminar, public speaking, reading books and hearing from their fellow friends and coaches. Yet, they still can't catch up the whole meaning of leadership; they cannot make a progress.

It does not matter whether you have to join the leadership seminars or even a class of leadership management with master degree, you still can't be a new productive person if you can't feel leadership. It requires heart to feel leadership first before anything else. To get that feeling, you first need to train yourself very particularly for it. Because this good habit can't just accidently happen to any of us. It does not just happen but it happens very just. You must plan a tree first before you can get the fruit. You have to earn leadership as early as possible before you can be a professional person or great leadership.

In addition, where should you start to earn leadership credit, from which point or on what direction! There are a lot to begin with but the most effective and fundamental lessons that are verified by great leaders, best CEOs, and business person around the world are catgorized into five main lessons-learned. They are: Knowing the appropriate time, knowing what is and not beneficial, knowing own strengths and weaknesses, knowing about the others and lastly knowing geographical location one is living with.

It does mean that we are not perfect; we are not as strong as we may think we are. It is advice to find out our weakness so we can seek help always from people around. However, saying this does not mean that you never be thankful to yourself. Of course, give yourself a thum. But do not show it to other. Let others find out by themselves about strengths. Hence, knowing strengths and weakness will you to fix your error part and upgrade it.

4). Knowing about others: Knowing yourself is not enough for great foundation of leadership building. Know others would help a lot.
