A real leader is a servant. He thinks the people first above every other thing including himself. He is expected to meet set out targets like every other employee. He is an employee remember.
Leadership is not royalty. It is not an opportunity for one to get rich over night. That by itself is corruption. It is not necessarily an aspiration. It is a call that demands the highest qualification.
A leader must be 100% healthy. It is expected that he must be able to attend to the needs of his masters the people. So to be up and doing he must be sound mentally and physically.
Leadership is not an entitlement. It must not be fought over. That by itself is also corruption, and greed. It must be accepted for what it is; a sacrifice. It must be a burden to the individual and not a privilege, that way it will be less attractive and reserved for only those with the passion to serve.
This perception is hardly obtainable across the globe today. We have more of rulers piloting the affairs of our countries. That explains the wars and arguments we are having to deal with every now and then.
There are way too many dictators, Kings and Queens. There are looters occupying public offices, godfathers and what have you? How can the world be better with all these in charge?
To make things right, there has to be a total overhaul of the system so that rooms can be created for servant-leaders everywhere to take charge and do nothing else but serve.
