When I was in kindergarten, my favorite game was acting as the director of a business, telling other kids to do different things. That was why I started dreaming to become a great businesswoman. Since it became my biggest dream, I know that I have to learn to be a good leader, and my years in high school have really taught me a lot. I enjoy being a leader, and I am happy when things are done smoothly thanks to my efforts. I strongly believe that is the greatest character of an outstanding leader. Things cannot be done perfectly without one’s passion. There is a big different between things you want to do and things you have to do. When I love what I do, I will spend my whole time and effort into it no matter how hard it is. Furthermore, having lucid decision is important too. In facts, leadership is the art of getting someone else to do something you want because he wants to do it. No one wants to trust someone who is indecisive and has no idea what he is doing. Henry Ford said that, “If you think you can do a thing or think you can't do a thing, you're right.” If a leader follows others’ thinking, why should he be the leader? The last, but not the least characteristic makes a leader prominent is to believe in their team. A strong team is the team that can promote every member’s strength, and to value the team, the leader knows how to encourage people to get involved, give them voice and autonomy to contribute. Becoming the President of a new fashion club in 11th grade, I met lots of troubles, but also collected experiences to lead a group effectively. After completing a few projects successfully, I learned that everyone can be a leader, but no one is a born outstanding leader.
