3 Qualities That Make A Great Leader | Sadhguru

if you want to maintain a status quo nothing new will ever happen a leader means you're a madman who is always wanting to step into something new your life is an adventure when everybody is looking up to you in case you fall it's very bad so it's very very important you upgrade the machine [Music] [Music] to really build a dna of success these are the three things you need insight definitely integrity and inspiration if you want to be inspired first thing is you must find something larger than yourself to do something which is bigger than yourself to do if you choose things which are safe and nice and easy which will make you some money [Music] you may make some money i'm not against it that's the goal it's fine but you will not be inspired living an inspired life and living a for lack of vocabulary i'm using this not as an insult to any profession a clerical kind of life when i say clerical it is all set you do this this you'll get your salary that's it no risk last generation of people in this country would always say first thing is that government employment that was the aspiration always why no risk whether you're capable not capable you have a 40 45 year work span doesn't matter whether you deliver you don't deliver you can even get there every day or not still you got a job you will never be fired no risk if there has to be inspiration within you there has to be an element of uncertainty without uncertain uncertainty there is no inspiration or a risk or danger where there is no danger there is no adventure where there's no adventure nobody will be inspired by you if people don't see that you are willing to step into something that they are not willing to step into you cannot inspire anybody people should see what they're afraid of stepping into you're willing to step into well when you take a risk you may get burnt yes it can happen that's what danger means that there is a risk that's what risk means sometimes it can go dead wrong yes of course we calculate the risks we're not going to blindly walk into something but there is a risk where there is no danger there is no adventure maybe you're risking your money maybe you're risking your reputation maybe you're risking a loss of time in your life 10 years of your life may go without any product possible hello when you start a venture it is possible 10 15 20 years of your life went into nothing [Music] that risk is there you may not get killed like jumping off a mountain but loss of life is there in many different ways [Music] so inspiration if it has to come one basic element is integrity where there is no integrity you cannot inspire integrity means just this don't think integrity is a bundle of morals values ethics no integrity means your commitment is larger than yourself maybe it's your business maybe it's your community maybe it's your nation maybe it's the world we don't know what but something larger than yourself you're committed to that then people see you have integrity people experience integrity because you are committed to something beyond your own self-interest if they don't see that then you cannot inspire anybody and if you do not inspire people around you if they drag their feet if they drag their feet your life is finished just know this and these dragging feet people will make your life miserable in every possible way hello you've seen them so now the only way is if you drag your feet i'll fire you if you drag your feet i'll fire you that you can do to some extent with that you are not going to produce the best in people it is not just they are not dragging their feet it is just that they are going beyond their limits and doing something only then something wonderful is happening around you only then you being there in that activity it's worth getting up tomorrow morning pull on otherwise after being successful for 5-10 years you will ask to be or not to be you may not articulate it but it will show in the length of your face yes that shows there is a question mark whether what is the purpose of my existence question mark has come maybe it's not entered your head and become words but the question mark is there in people's faces a face where if we had seen you when you're five six years of age it was like this now slowly this means the question has risen somewhere not it articulated maybe but question has come why the question has come is there is no inspiration inspiration is not just all yours the atmosphere around you should be inspired for that without a very extreme sense of integrity it won't happen if your integrity is just of morality and ethics people will feel sick of you because it's very hard to live under a moral shadow very hard it is life taking but your integrity is because your commitment is larger than your personal well-being that is when everything around you is inspired coming to insight this is the tricky part insight means you are able to see something that others could not see you're able to see things ahead of other people that's important thing everybody sees everything at some point but the thing is you saw it before then that makes a world of difference if you were in a battle it would decide whether you live or die if you're in a business it decides whether you're really successful or just about making it if you're in a spiritual process is worse than battle if you have no insight of any kind or if there's nobody around you with any insight then it's lifetimes of drudgery if you're not able to grasp any insight or if there is nobody around you with deep insight you're just doing a spiritual process now you are for lifetimes of slavery yes that is why they become the most serious kind everywhere in the world so if insight has to come one important dimension is the reason why there is no insight is people are largely trying to function with their intellect this is a unfortunate consequence of the type of education that's been important everywhere where your intellect is seen as a prime value to understand the mechanics of how your intellect functions your intellect is in function only with the data that has been fed into it data means memory somebody's memory or your memory memory means things that have already happened so if you function from the data that you have you can do permutations and combinations of this data and make it look like magic for some time but one thing is very clear nothing new will ever happen because you gotten enmeshed in your own data so insight means that you do not get identified with something limited your identities with limitations essentially comes from the data that you gather right now you are identified with let us say your own personal qualifications now what you identified with that's what you become or let us say you're identified with your community or with your nation and that's what you become what you identify with you become that in that sense you are not able to
