Why do you want to be a leader?

Leadership is the buzz word of all buzz words, but when athletes are ushered into the symposiums and orientations, they are told that they will develop this quality and it will benefit them later on after sports. I agree, but with a caveat. Leadership is influence right? So, one of the main questions should be WHY do you want to be a leader and what do you want to have influence over? 

Do you just want the title or do you actually want to use your influence for the betterment of yourself and those around you. Let's be honest, Hitler was an excellent leader, but do we really need any more of those kinds of leaders? No! That may be an exaggerated example, but if you are going to use your influence for bad I don't want you to have it. 

If you are in a leadership program, why do you want to be a leader? Leave a comment below!
