Question: What compels someone to lead others?
Power is something that compels people to lead others. At first the person want to lead others to do what’s right and make a good difference. At some point a realization sinks in that these people have the power to command people and become a great leader. All great leaders have a lot of respect and have power over a lot. To lead others and be good at it they must demand respect. To earn respect, they conquer and do good things for their people. Through conquering they are just leading more. Maybe the person aspiring to be a leader wants to lead simply because they have a good idea for their people. They think they can make a change so instead of waiting around to make the change they put it into action and begin leading. There is also a scenario where someone may not agree with the current leaders’ judgments or decisions. In this case someone could be compelled to lead so they can get the other person out of the leadership position and do what they think is better. All of these cases begin as power. In order to become a leader you must earn power, which is very compelling. Eventually, whether or not the original thing that a person was compelled by was power, they begin to go power crazy, just like any good ruler. Any good ruler gains so much respect and power that there comes a point where they can’t stop.
