Many true kings are out there hoping that one day they will have their crown but other kings already have theirs. Your leadership in life, business and with relationships rely on some very important things. We will be discussing these today.
These amazing tips are from the entrepreneuria group on medium
01. One Can Not Be King If They Can’t Even Rule Themselves
What is a king without his kingdom, and how can one rule anything if they’re unable to rule themselves?
In order to ascend to the throne you need to master yourself, your actions, your decision making ability, for your kingdom depends on them.
02Most Young Kings Get Their Heads Cut-Off
You might not be ready to be a king yet, but you are on your way.
Jump the gun and ascend to the throne too quickly and those seeing the opportunity will take the crown for themselves.
Your time will come, you need to prepare if you wish your reign to be remembered.
03Come, See, Conquer & Move On…
Life is a continuous conquest, be it internally or externally.
As with everything in life, you need to show up, analyze the situation, do what must be done and then move onto the next conquest.
That’s the only way to keep moving forward in life.
Too many kings want kingdoms without the willingness to go into battle.
04Live By the Principles You Wish to Be Followed in Your Lands
Walk the walk.
People judge others based on their actions not their intent.
Whatever you do, you set the standard for how others should behave — at least in relation to you.
Practice what you preach!
A good king passes down his teaching onto the populous. A great king is remembered by the populous for the principles that ruled his own life.
05Your Ability to Lead Is Your Competitive Advantage
There’s this Alexander the Great quote that we love:
“Don’t be afraid of an army of lions led by a sheep; be afraid of an army of sheep led by a lion.”
The paradox is, the sheep lives its life being worried of the wolves but ends up being eaten by the shepherd.
A lion has no shepherd, for a lion is free.
Lead your team to victory… And if you don’t have a team, lead yourself!
06Too Many Kings… Too Little Castles
Too many pharaohs, too little pyramids.
It doesn’t matter if you proclaim yourself as king if there’s no kingdom you have built!
Be careful when too many proclaim themselves as kings. For no kingdom can endure two kings.
07There Are No Kings without Armies
A king without an army is just a civilian waiting for a proper king to take his treasure.
For one to be a king, you need to be able to protect what you care about.
Build an army of people who care about the kingdom as much as you do and they will follow you into battle.
08Never Interrupt Your Enemy When He Is Making a Mistake
Most empires fall based on the decisions of their leaders.
Mind your own and let everyone else run their own path in life.
Play life by your own strategy.
09Keep Your Friends within Reach but No Closer… A Shield Only Works If the Enemy Is on the Other Side
Be careful of the snakes in your garden, for they have bridged the citadel’s walls.
Those closest to us can hurt us the most.
Trust, but don’t be naive.
10A Queen Needs a Kingdom, Not a King, to Be a Queen
You don’t need someone to validate you, you just need your achievements. Sure, a power couple, queen and king makes the ruling more bearable and the dynasty last longer, but it’s not a requirement for the throne.
Build your kingdom, for you don’t need anyone’s permission to do so.
11In the Country of the Blind, the One Eyed Man Is King
That who has the slightest advantage over everyone else wins the race.
Find your ability to see when others are blind.
What do you have eyes for that no-one else around you sees? That’s where your kingdom awaits!
12Whoever Controls the King, Controls the Kingdom
Being a king isn’t about the status of being a king, but about control & power. That who can exercise his power freely is more successful than a caged king.
You want your voice to be heard and for your voice to matter.
We said it in the past and we’ll say it again:
“He who can silence a king, is the king.”
13There Are Only 2 Forces in the World: The Sword and the Spirit
And in the long run, the sword will always be conquered by the spirit.
You can control others with one of two emotions: FEAR and the feeling you get when THERE IS SOMETHING TO BE GAINED.
The sword can get you in, but unless your goals align, you’ll never survive long term.
14A King Is a King Even When He Isn’t Wearing His Crown
A king is not made by the costume he wears but by his intangible power and the belief others have in him.
Master other people’s beliefs and you end up mastering reality.
It’s in the way you carry yourself, in the way you speak and other perceive you. If you want to be a king, better start acting like one.
15Only the King Knows How Much the Crown Weighs
Status and power are an incredible burden to carry. Knowing people depend on your ability to perform, to make good decisions that have the wellbeing of the kingdom at heart is a heavy price to pay.
Others will see the sparkle, the gold shine, the robes and the castle, but none of them see what it took to get on the throne and what sacrifices you’re making just to maintain your seat.
