Value of Leadership

I was a bit down this week as the chance for me to be the best student for my faculty when I graduate, is getting low. Well, I am not quite active in extra-curricular activitivites. CGPA is not the only thing taken account in evaluating who will be the best student. My friend told me that I need leadership skills and MUST involve in club/society.

These things grabbed my attention during my school years. However, not anymore. Maybe, I am already busy with business. So, I am not quite interested with these things. And those challenges I had really made me felt that I had enough with these things. Especially the hard times when I was one of the editors for the school magazine. Chatter boxes behind your backs became normal when you involved in handling anything. Lucky, I didn't strap those mouths with strong-glue sallotape.

Others also told me that when you involved in these activities, you get to travel. That reason does not attract me. Yeah, I prefer going anywhere with my parents. I felt safer and better protected besides having quality family-time. By the way, my parents are a bit protective when I need to go anywhere. I dont blame on them for this. I'm the only child. I may do the same if I'm in their shoes.

Again, and again, my friend told me that I need to be less-childish and more emotionally and mentally stable. Sometimes, I dont even realise I'm acting like a child. Urghh... That's the problem. But I did agree on the part I need to be emotionally stable. Emotions can overwhelm my actions at times. Overwhelm? Maybe...

About the leadership thingy again, do I have to get involved with these? I don't even know where to start. I'm a bit BLANK here.. Need help. But I do have a dream to be a good leader. But I'm not sure with myself
