6 life lessons we learnt from Dr APJ Abdul Kalam

6 life lessons we learnt from Dr APJ Abdul Kalam

“A man is great by deeds, not by birth.”
A great quote from a great thinker and scientist, Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam, who has served our country as a president from 2002 to 2007. Avul Pakir Jainulabdeen started his career as a scientist. He influenced many lives with his dedication and hard work. People admire him not for what he has given to science, but also due to his unmatchable personality. There are many inspiring traits of this great leader. We have summed up some teachings of Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam that we can use to become leaders.
1.    Be Prepared
What life throws at you is completely uncertain. You never know what’s next. So, always be ready for the best and the worst. He said:
“You see, God helps only people who work hard. That principle is very clear.”
You don’t know what is in the future, but make sure you work hard for it. This can only be achieved if you are always prepared to face the challenges. Good and bad are the two faces of the same coin. Work hard to achieve your best and never let yourself down.
2.    Leaders Acknowledge Contribution
Leaders take the responsibility of the teamwork. They never put you down for mistakes, instead appreciate your contributions so that you can improve. Leaders are guides, what they see, they reap. Trust your team members and let them flourish so that they can give their best to whatever task they perform. A team makes a leader good or bad. So, acknowledge and appreciate the efforts of your team.
