21st Century will require people who are successful personal leaders.
The natural question is
"What is Personal Leadership?"
Joel Farcht defines it as follows:
“Personal leadership is the self-confident ability to crystalize your
thinking and establish an exact direction for your own life, to commit
yourself to moving in that direction, and then to take determined action
to acquire, accomplish, or become whatever you identify as the ultimate
goal in your life.”
This means
 as personal leader you commit to take the lead in your life.
 You identify and explore the opportunity to design, create and
achieve your ideal ways of living and leading.
 It also means putting yourself first.
 It is kindling within. When you fan the inner flame, you release the
hidden capabilities within you.
 You start asking yourself, How do I need to be and act and think in
order to be my best?"
 You start developing a self-driven dedicated style to make you
embrace your life success.
This will help you create four foundational pillars in your life success.
They are
 perseverance,
 emotional intelligence,
 self-innovation and
 humanitarian.
Once these pillars are ready to give your life a solid foundation, you can
certainly achieve your life success.
In the same vein let us look at the current education process. Why?
Because, Education process is meant to give you life success.
One finds that the entire process is based on fear and rewards. More the
focus on rewards and fear, farther it takes you from becoming a good
personal leader.
Success in schools is largely measured by grades, students incentivized
and rewarded through comparison and competition with peers. The
corporate structure pretty much follows the same pattern of
comparisons and increments as a yardstick for success.
So, for most, fear and reward are the two primary drivers for achieving
this kind of success.
The primary driver 'Fear' in children leads to compliance and not
engagement with their education.
The second primary driver 'Rewards' are effective in tasks that involve
mechanical skills with clear path to achieve the goal but still fall short if
there are cognitive skill required to complete the task. This was well
demonstrated by the famous: Candle experiment' of Sam Glucksberg.
