Being a leader is not easy as one sometimes feel judged and taking on the leadership role means one is held accountable and has more responsibilities for one's actions. It is never easy especially leading in unchartered waters and a leader furthermore has to be a good role model to his followers. As the phrase goes.. leading by example.

As a leader, the difficulty lies in creating the balance between to what extent should one be friendly and to what extent should one remains aloof and detached. I believe,learning never ends and a leader always has to read more to be able to apply more knowledge and handle a variety of situations. Leading is never easy and at times, unexpected things happen that are not predicted or planned. One should never take failure to heart and learn from the mistakes made. Only then can one embrace oneself, improve and move on.
