Are All Black Leaders Really Qualified
To Lead The Masses Towards Our Socioeconomic Potential?
Training Requires Practicing Success
When I was a flight attendant, I had always been fascinated by the
control that the pilots had of the jumbo aircraft that carried hundreds of
passengers safely to their destinations. I particularly admired their skills. At
times, they were forced to abort the landing due to rough turbulences and try
another approach. Luckily, for the general public, pilots are well trained
to land in snowy conditions, icy runways, crosswinds, and other dangerous
conditions, both in simulators and in real life experiences.
I often wondered if our well-educated Black leaders in politics, religion and wealth building were trained to carry the masses to their destinations towards socioeconomic success . After all, they didn’t become leaders because they had failed in life. They became leaders because they had the knowledge and talent and the trust from their constituents that they were going to succeed at the job.
Considering the socioeconomic challenges Blacks worldwide continue to face year after year with no end in sight, shouldn’t these leaders be fired for running what could be a thriving business into the ground?
But wait, didn’t anyone notice that these leaders never had training in emergency procedures not even in simulators? How can we expect them to be the saviors of Black people when they have no experience in turning economic crises to economic achievement? Well, except for their own lives.
We can’t, nor should we hold them accountable for the poor socioeconomic conditions of Black people around the world even though independence for most Black nations has existed for nearly one hundred years.
Repetition Could Be a Sign of Insanity
According to Nobel prize winning physicist, Albert Einstein, the
definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and
expecting different results.
If the programs aren’t working, then it’s time to take a different approach. You cannot expect these leaders to resolve these issues as I think that we have seen their best work with their best thinking. Therefore, they should take a completely different approach with a different mind-set to resolve these issues, or the Black communities must find alternative means towards economic and social empowerment.
If you were about to take a flight and learned that the pilots landed the planes safely fifty-percent of the time, would you even get on the plane? Hell no.
So, what should we do? I’m glad you asked.
Take 100% Responsibility for Our Own Lives
The Black community should take one hundred percent responsibility for their own lives. Blaming gets us nowhere. Either we continue depending on programs and leaders that aren’t qualified or take control of their own future. We could do this by adopting the principles and strategies that have been working for successful people and organizations around the world.
It doesn’t matter who you are, where you are, your race, your gender, or how poor you are. You CAN achieve your dreams. If you’re not happy with your current life, you can design and pursue a different life.
Why do you think there’s such a disparity between the rich and the poor, between those who succeed and those who fail, between wealthy Blacks and those living in impoverished conditions? Most wealthy people started with nothing but a dream.
So, what makes them different from the rest?
You Must Think and Act Different to Become Successful
According to Wallace D. Wattles, in his book, The Science of Getting Rich, it is simple: "they think and act in a certain way."
A group of Black professionals has developed an incredible self-improvement program designed for people of African descent to do just that – think and act in a certain way. This program is called THE TANDEM METHODS™ and features learning components that guide participants to create and achieve goals better and smarter.
It may be the catalyst that initiates the change that Black people have been waiting for that will teach them how to success.
