Do I Really Want My Children to Be Leaders?

I have always been sure that I want my children to become leaders. I think most parents have the same wish for their children. I mean, why not? When you look at history, it is not hard to see that most people who possessed great leadership skills lived successful, happy, and fulfilled lives.

However lately, I have come across a couple of readings that made me think about this desire I have for my children–made me ask myself whether I really wanted my children to be leaders. Are my wishes sincere? Or are they driven only by my selfish desires for recognition and adoration? Furthermore, I started realizing that while being a leader can be a truly rewarding experience, it entails a lot of hard work and can expose a person to a great deal of criticisms, pressure, and stress.

So after thinking about it for a few days, I have come to a conclusion that I still want my children to become leaders. Sure, it may not be easy, but I definitely would not want them to miss out on the chance to accomplish great things and make a huge difference in the world and in the lives of the people they meet.
