"I pack my case, I check my face
I look a little bit older
I look a little bit colder
With one deep breath, and one big step
I move a little bit closer, I move a little bit closer
For reasons unknown..."

(For Reasons Unknown - the Killers)

  Wow, I can't believe it. Today it's my 19th B-day.

I guess when people say that time flies in the blink of an eye, they really mean it!

I used to deslike my birthdays. No one likes growing old, but I don't think this was normal in my case, I mean... I was too young to hate birthdays and stuff like that. But, today it's different. 

First of all: It's not raining today! Everybody used to mock me because it always rains on my birthday. But, different from other years, today the sun was beating down! It was a bright sunny day! Ok, now it's kinda cloudy, but at least it's not raining...! (not yet!)

I don't know why but today I've got this feeling, you know... I wanna do everything I've never done before! I wanna try something new, I wanna find myself! I'm searching for changes. I've been planning on doing a lot of things like starting new projects and finishing old ones.

Today I don't care about birthday presents or cakes. I just want to keep this feeling alive. I just wanna fight for my own happiness and feel that I can win. Well, maybe I'm finally starting to mature. It's a good thing, right? 

So, that's all for today. I'm gonna kick back, maybe read something or take a nap. I have classes later, so I won't throw a party. haha

Well, till the next post, then!

Today, in class, our teacher made us this question and I'm still thinking about it.
Sometimes I wonder if successful leaders are people that were born to do it or if they are normal people who learned how to guide and motivate others. Being a leader isn't just bossing people around. It's more than this. In my opinion, being a leader is one of the most difficult  tasks... maybe that's why whe don't have so much leaders in the world. Good ones, at least.
Leaders can't just give someone orders and then not to lift a finger to make something happens. There's nothing to do with being bossy, negligent and sometimes mean to his group's member. It also demands a lot of responsability, dedication...

... that's why I wanna become one.

I've never wanted to take responsability by someone else in my whole life, not because I'm selfish and laid-back (ok, I'm laid-back but this is not the reason) but maybe because I've always feared the consequences. If something doesn't work out, all the group is responsible for that but maybe not as much as the one who's leading them. But now, I think I want to face the consequences of my attitudes and choices. I should have done that before, I know it, but I've never felt ready for that... till now.
It seems I've always been following people, accepting everything without question... or not even try to assert myself. But things has changed and now I want to be at risk. I still have a lot of things to learn, some skills to develop as patience and optimism... but I'll try my best from now on.

Well... I think everyone should ask itself if it's time to stop following in order to start leading.

If you want to become a leader too, make sure to keep this in mind:

"Don't tell people how to do things, tell them what to do and let them surprise you with their results."
George S. Patton

And, once you think you've reached all you need to be a leader, ask yourself another question: Would you like to be led by yourself? If your answer is "yes", then you probably have become a true leader.

Ok ;)

Got your point,I just wanted to add some information.and I agree with you "only when you succed to lead you self,then you can lead others" I guess this you point right ?;)

Hossam, first of all, thanks for your coment.

I started to watching this video but I've noticed you've made another point. In my post I don't talk about this kind of leader. The leader in question does have nothing to do about religions, but, well... your point of view is interesting as well, even if doesn't suit my angle in the text.

Anyway, thanks for sharing your opinion with me :)

So, do you think a coffee machine isn't a big deal? Or do you think a washing machine just works because you press a button? Well, you better think twice!

That's how machines REALLY work:
