How to be a Natural Leader (plus the Traits of a Great Leader!)

Hey there, Clark here from Self Help Books. Some people say that great leaders are born, not made. But how true is it? Below let me first touch on the traits of a great leader, then we shall go on to discuss how to be a natural leader.


What Makes A Great Leader

What comes to mind when you hear the word “leader”?

Some people think of the CEO of a company. Others may think of their parents or teachers.

To be a leader, you don’t need to have a title. Everyone is a leader in some context in their life. And learning how to be a great or effective leader is within everyone’s grasp.

Being a real leader has little to do with the things that many people associate with leadership. Things like fame and money.

Real leadership is courage, inspiring others, and committing to create something that is bigger than yourself.

Great leaders inspire you to look inside and bring the best of yourself to the surface. They live in alignment with their values, they know what they truly want in life, and they have a genuine interest in helping others develop and succeed.

Great leaders are willing to express and defend an unpopular opinion, as well as stand up for themselves and others.

Great leaders know where they are going, and are able to persuade others to go along with them. In times of great challenges, real leaders have positive attitudes – which shine and draw others to themselves.


Great leaders don’t have to be asked to get the job done – they can get their fires burning without depending on external stimuli.

Great leaders are also humble, and emotionally in control. And great leaders are charismatic. Being able to connect with others is definitely an asset.

Being a leader means creating the life you truly want to live and inspiring others to do the same.

How To Be A Natural Leader

The Great Man theory states that some people are born to lead whereas others are born to be led. Meanwhile, trait theories believe that some people inherit certain qualities or traits that make them better suited to leadership.

However, as mentioned above real leadership is courage, inspiring others, and committing to create something that is bigger than yourself.

Therefore, learning how to be a leader is within everyone’s grasp.


If becoming a great leader is your strong intention, subliminal technology may just be able to help you out. This technology sneaks affirmations directly into one’s open and receptive subconscious, bypassing the logical, filtering conscious mind. Say we record the phrase “I am confident leading from the front!!” then embed that phrase inside a piece of music, which we then play repeatedly. By using certain techniques, the conscious mind only hears the music, which occupies the conscious mind while the subconscious, which we know doesn’t filter anything we feed it soaks up the affirmations.

Two Highly Recommended Subliminal Technologies

Subliminal360 (visual subliminal) flashes over 4,000 brief, millisecond affirmations per hour on my PC screen while I surf the Internet, check my emails, watch a movie, write this article, etc. Meanwhile, a Subliminal Guru (audio subliminal) album contains a set of MP3 audios with different music – Acoustic, Rainfall, Relaxation, Workout, etc. – though each contains the same affirmations.

Read my review of Subliminal360 and Subliminal Guru here (Be sure to read the important notes about when NOT to listen to brainwave entrainment audios). Follow the links on my Subliminal Guru review post to receive two free subliminal MP3s.

  1. I am a self help books lover myself. I totally agree with the fact that leaders are not just born, they are made. I particularly love the subliminal technologies you recommend. I have been in the self help space for years and this is the first time I heard this kind of technology being available in this format. Thank you, thank you, thank you, so helpful!

  2. Interesting content, thanks! We can all use this kind of information to boost our confidence and find our way. Keep up the great content.

  3. I know many people can use it. My friend is about to become the head of a construction project and I think he can listen to Subliminal Guru while he is working. The other program can make him distracted but I am sure that he will like Subliminal Guru as a present.

  4. Hello. I always felt a Great Leader is someone that doesn’t say it, they lead by doing it. I have always believed that if you are not willing to do what you preach then I can’t respect you as a leader. A great leader is also someone that lifts you to be someone better than what you believe you are and stand behind you. Great article. Thank you.

    • Well said, thank you. Sometimes, though, a leader has to consider other people in the team and adjust his or her course of action, depending on the circumstances.

  5. “Great leaders are also humble, and emotionally in control”
    So very true! When you are able to listen, process and then respond in a diplomatic fashion, you are someone that people have more respect for and look to for guidance.

    Great article!

  6. This is so cool. Like I knew it was possible and everyone thinks the government does it to us, but to be able to actually pick and choose what we want to have our subconscious mind reprogrammed to?! I find that so fascinating. I will have to look more into this. Thank you for this information, I am intrigued!

  7. That explains it all! I know what it’s like. I don’t have a title, but I know that my co-workers and people that I know, consider me a leader. I have the ability to get the job done without being asked to do so and also, without needing the recognition.

    • Good for you (just make sure you’re all that!). I especially like the part where you said you do not need recognition from others.
