Why You Should Want to Lead a Pack

The concept of being a “pack-leader” will be used in reference to leading many or just being by yourself. It shouldn’t matter how much control you attain, because being the one who has the final say matters more. The desire to lead a pack can manifest itself into many aspects of life. There are people who want to lead bigger packs than others. As well as people for whom leading packs becomes a problem.

Becoming the leader of a pack is sometimes needed to propel your truth, but the argument against absolute power always stands. Pack-leading should not be utilized for bad deeds and any subcategories of bad deeds. You have only one reality to form in your existence, and should consider that mistakes exist. Pack-leaders should be careful listening to advice from others, and should become unbiased in their analysis of opinion. Successful pack leaders are most in-tune with what is true around them and others rely on them for guidance towards the truth. 

Accelerated Personal Improvement 

The desire to lead a pack comes with a list of things to worry about as well as celebrate. With any power you attain in life, you’ll need to know all the pitfalls that come your way. Pack-leaders are the first to be praised as well as blamed. You will be responsible for the behavior of all who follow your lead, and will sometimes need to enforce your control over them. Leading a pack will put you in a position of knowledge and principal access to information. You’ll need to know the variables at play and other leaders will first converse with you. 

The fact that you’re the first and final point of communication with external parties is an advantage to recognize. You will not be ignored as the leader of a pack, so take with that what you will. Pack-leading as a trait is in conjunction with the need to know. Both criticism as well as praise will fly your way so be open to learning in every instance. Your actions will be surveyed and your decisions will be questioned. Becoming a leader of your pack will force you to become a better decision maker and balancer of scales.  

This attention that you gain by building a following of those who depend on you will serve to improve you. Personal improvement is accelerated when you have the attention of many eyes. You’ll be constantly susceptible to aspects you should work on for which you should be willing to put in the work. The desire to lead your pack serves to pull you away from the masses with their average thoughts and ways of being. Leaders are forced to think in ways that most don’t bother. Pack leaders are lonely in their thoughts as well as actions, they are tasked with paving paths rather than simply taking them. 

Improve yourself by wanting to lead your pack. Your current pack may consist of only one – the one sitting in your chair and reading this. The adoption of the mindset is what matters first, and your success will be measured by how many join your pack. Your desire to improve should be driven by the desire to lead your pack, and the ones who follow only follow those who focus on their growth. Begin your growth of body and mind and don’t look sideways once you start. Begin your journey for perfection and notice how attracted others feel to you.  

You Refrain Being Mislead

There are cheaters, killers, liars, and thieves in the life you live. The mindset you adopt by leading packs will make you question all you see. You will be responsible for the safety of your pack, and thereby develop an eye for sabotage. The lonesome feeling of being the one who leads will lower your chances of being mislead. Understand the responsibility that you hold in your position of leading others. Question everything that you see and make sure all hidden corners are surveyed. Pack leaders do not blindly follow anything and every action is one of conscious deliberation. Risks and dangers in what’s ahead will be exposed to the leader of a pack and you’ll slowly grow to be deliberate in your thoughts and actions. 

Leading packs bares responsibility which will make you a better person overall. The improvement that you’ll realize is unique to the desire of leading others. There are not many people that can be labelled leaders as it is difficult to do and even more difficult to maintain long-term. Begin wanting to be a leader, and allow the difficulties along the way to morph you into one.
