What is leadership?
This is a question each leader has wondered before we started our journey of becoming the leaders we are today. Leadership is becoming a role model to others through taking initiative and helping the world with selfless actions. We are all leaders in many ways but ECSLIT has helped us all to show it better than we ever could before. To be a leader in my eyes is to do something for the greater good of others without expecting anything in return, a trait that many of us have shown throughout the past school year.
What is fear?
Fear [feer] noun ;
a distressing emotion aroused by impending danger, evil, pain, etc., whether the threat is real orimagined; the feeling or condition of being afraid. Synonyms: foreboding, apprehension,consternation, dismay, dread, terror, fright, panic, horror, trepidation, qualm. Antonyms: courage, security, calm, intrepidity.
We are born with only 2 types of fears when we are born, a fear of loud noises and falling. At ECSLIT we learned that fear can be both a good thing and a bad thing. Fear makes us cautious about what we do and keeps us safe. It makes us think before reacting. In contrast, fear can also be a bad thing. It inhibits you from taking action.
Since we are all born with only 2 fears (Loud noises and falling), all of our other fears are really just in our head – unless we’re talking about a life or death situation.
Instead of acting on fear, act on FAITH!
Have faith and believe that the Lord will always be by your side. Therefore, you won’t need / have to worry about your fears actually happening.
“Courage is not the absence of fear; courage rather is acting in spite of fear”
Gabbie Gonzales and Alex Rivera
|WE WERE ALL BORN WITH TWO FEARS….
What we learned regarding leadership
- We learned that fear is only “false expectations appearing real.” there is only two fears that we are born with and that is loud noises and falling. We develop different types of fears due to experiences.
- We learned that what you do on the internet can affect you in the future. We should use the internet wisely. What you post on the internet
-Equity isn’t the same as equality. Equity means the quality of being fair and impartial. Equality is the state of being equal, especially in status, rights, and opportunities.
-We also learned the pros and cons in using plastic water bottles and how they can affect us. Tap water is healthier and cheaper than using plastic water bottles. The plastic that is used to make these bottles can put us at risk and all goes to waste. Also along this journey we learned how to work as a team and learned how to be a leader!
What we experienced regarding leadership
We’ve done so much leadership activities during this year of 2014! We’ve been going to many Esclit meetings and learning even more every visit! Esclit is a place where leaders can learn to make differences and become a better role model. We’ve also gotten an opportunity to go to i-lite with all of the intermediates! At I-lite we’ve got to meet so much people and go to workshops, and we’ve also got a chance to have fun and dance! Our school has been doing a bunch of fundraisers for charity, such as we create change, and we scare hunger!
