2021 heavy tendancies for “New Leadership “
Your attention is called to a few of the fertile fields in which there has been a decline of leadership, and in which the new type of leader may find an abundance of OPPORTUNITY.
In the field of politics there is a most insistent demand for new lead-
ers; a demand which indicates nothing less than an emergency. The majority of politicians have, seemingly, become high-grade, legalized racketeers. They have increased taxes and debauched the machinery of industry and business until the people can no longer stand the burden.
The banking business is undergoing a reform. The leaders in this field
have almost entirely lost the confidence of the public. Already the bankers have sensed the need of reform, and they have begun it.
Industry calls for new leaders. The old type of leaders thought and moved in terms of dividends instead of thinking and moving in terms of human equations! The future leader in industry, to endure, must regard himself as a quasipublic official whose duty it is to manage his trust in such a way that it will work hardship on no individual, or group of individuals. Exploitation of working men is a thing of the past. Let the man who aspires to leadership in the field of business, industry, and labor remember this.
The religious leader of the future will be forced to give more atten-
tion to the temporal needs of his followers, in the solution of their economic and personal problems of the present, and less attention to the dead past, and the yet unborn future.
In the professions of law, medicine, and education, a new brand of leadership, and to some extent, new leaders will become a necessity. This is especially true in the field of education. The leader in that field must, in the future, find ways and means of teaching people HOW TO APPLY the knowledge they receive in school. He must deal more with PRACTICE and less with THEORY.
Sixth. New leaders will be required in the field of Journalism. Newspapers of the future, to be conducted successfully, must be divorced from “special privi-
lege” and relieved from the subsidy of advertising. They must cease to be organs of propaganda for the interests which patronize their advertising columns. The type of newspaper which publishes scandal and lewd pictures will eventually go the way of all forces which debauch the human mind.
These are but a few of the fields in which opportunities for new leaders and a new brand of leadership are now available. The world is undergoing a rapid change.
This means that the media through which the changes in human habits are promoted, must be adapted to the changes. The media here described, are the ones which, more than any others, determine the trend of civilization.
Congratulations, you have made it up to the end of this reading.
This piece is NOT mine, it is a very simple copy-paste of 1937 (yes absolutely, go and check) Napoleon Hill’s “Think and Grow Rich”.
What have we learned ?
What have we done ?
Where did it go wrong ?
How can we proceed from now ?
Who is who in this world. Who are you ?
Why did you come here on this planet ? What for ???
Napoleon Hill, if you are there, please help us into consciousness and coherence, and long term vision for common progress…
