A Leader uses power wisely and power is the prime mover of people and events. If you are to deserve authority and master the art of influencing others, you need a lesson in self evaluation to keep you on track. These four self evaluation questions will help:
Why do you want power?
What will you do with it?
What will it mean to you once you have it?
Who will you serve with your power?

When you have personal and position power in balance, when you are humble about your power, and when you are willing to empower others, you will make a difference. Grass Roots leaders and famous leaders alike know that power and greatness are not a goal but a by-product of learning how to serve. A TRUE LEADER uses power wisely. People lack courage by not identifying themselves on Blogs when they attack others. This speaks volumes to the person they are, behind their anonymous post. I am my own person, and it is not about how much education you have, how much money you make, where you come from or who you know, it's your enthusiasm for improving things and creating new opportunities. If America is to survive the next two hundred years, we must maintain strong political and social ethics. Remember this Anonymous Blogger’s,” We Lead by Example". Everything we say or do sends a message, sets a tone, or teaches people what to do or what not to do.

Recently On a local BLOG I was reprimanded for not checking my spelling. Let me remind everyone that ridicule is a potent weapon and their will be many times my leadership is ridiculed but this empowers me even more, to stand up for my beliefs and accept any criticism. This is why one of the qualities of a LEADER is a RISK TAKER. Hiding behind your words when attacking others makes you a Coward. Also when the BLOG MASTER has control of his/her Blog they make the decision to POST. This also reflects their credibility and, they should take this into consideration before the post is made.
