25 Top Leadership and Self Leadership Quotes by Israelmore Ayivor.


Posted by Israelmore Ayivor on 27th August, 2013.


  1.           “You don’t lead people by what you say to them; you lead them by what they see you do. True leaders are self-leaders.”

    2.      “Leadership is an art expressed by the demonstration of characters worthy of imitation, emulation and inspiration. It is neither a title nor a position.” 

    3.      “A mere motivator sees potentials in people and tells them to take actions. A true leader sees the same potentials in the same people and influences them to optimize them under his God-lead inspirations.” 

    4.      “Leadership potential is in everyone; we all have it, but we all don’t know it until we have a direct individual encounter with the Holy Spirit of God. The principal source of leadership influence is the Holy Spirit.”

    5.      “It is not about whether you call yourself a leader or not. It is about what you have to show to people as a leader. Leadership is contagious; you carry it and share it.” 

    6.      “Self-esteem is the switch in the circuit of your life that dims or brightness of your future. Bring it low and you don’t shine your light; raise it up and you brighten the corner where you are.” 

    7.      “Those who mistrust their own abilities are being too wicked to themselves, discouraging themselves from doing what they should have been excelling in. If you are good at discouraging yourself, you can’t be a good leader because leadership is built on inspiring others to face challenges.” 

    8.      “If you want to wait till your black hairs turn grey and your teeth start pulling out before you become a leader, you are either too fast to prove your ignorance, or you are too late to know who you are made of.”

    9.      “Leaders are not known by their positions; they are known by their roles in those positions. You have many gifts as a leader, but your dominant gift is what you will use to lead.” 

    10.“As good surgical doctor works on a patient in the theater with varied kinds of surgical instruments, so a true leader also needs a clean bag of leadership characters that vary from task to task. One-way leaders are obvious failures!” 

    11.  “A man of vision cannot question his potentials. He does not doubt his capabilities. He keeps going because he had seen himself gone already in his visions.” 

    12.  “Your title is what you are; your visions are who you are. When you know who you are, then you will know where you can be useful most.” 

    13.  “The fact that people are in positions does not justify the means that they are leaders. A leader can be blind and to know this, check his sense of vision.” 

    14.  “We are no longer in the dispensation of age and experience. We are in the era of knowledge and information. Information leads a true leader and a true leader leads others.” 

    15.  “Authority confined in you does not make you a leader. It is the authority created by you that makes you influence people with your purpose.” 

    16.  “Ballot papers do not define leaders. Leadership is defined by conviction, vision, passion and inspiration.” 

    17.  “A true leader is a person whose influence inspires people to do what is expected of them to do. You cease to be a leader when you manipulate with your egos instead of convincing by your inspirations.”

    18.  “Self-leaders are still true leaders even if they have no known followers. True leaders inspire by the influence of their characters and general self-made brands. Leadership is defined by the virtues of one’s behaviour.”

    19.  “A young child is a leader to an elderly person once his purpose has a faithful, sincere and trustworthy influence on people. Leadership is not restricted to position and age; it is self-made and influential. Everyone has this self-leadership quality.”

    20.“A true leader is still a leader even when he takes up servants’ duty, provided he maintains a human face and added integrity to his self-retained qualities.”

    21.  “Self-leaders do not look for followers because they are busily pursuing their influential dreams that followers will trace and ask for. Followers look for influence and that can be obtained from self-leaders.”

    22.“You can be in your room and lead people. Just develop your potentials and publicize them and you will see people looking for your product. That is influence; self-made leaders do not look for followers. Followers look for them.”

    23.“Contrary to popular opinion, leadership is not a reserved position for a particular group of people who were elected or appointed, ordained or enthroned. Leadership is self-made, self-retained, self-inculcated and then exposed through a faithful, sincere and exemplary life.”

    24.“The concept of leadership is abused by people who think a person becomes a leader when he grows grey hair, put into a position and expected to function. Everyone has a leadership potential carried within in a specific area of his or purpose. Leadership is universal and built on trust.”

    25.“A “self-leader” is the positively influence you have on yourself and on others without any influence with your titles and positions. You must be able to lead yourself before you can lead others.”

    Believe that success is not luck; it is the result a deliberate effort to do a hard work! Believe that great people took great steps. Weak people took weak steps!
