To lead to or not lead… That is the question

Today, more than any other time in history, the youth have generally been let free to live their own lives and make their own decisions. Has it really been a success? Are the youth of this country growing into men and women that are pushing the boundaries of industry and developing new ideas? Well, half of the answer is no. The other half is another question: Are they being given the opportunities to show their creativity, skill and talent?

This two sided solution can be solved through inspiration. By inspiring our youth AND giving them the opportunities to flourish, we will give them a chance to achieve and hopefully succeed. We need to leave the culture that failing is the final hurdle. We need to teach our youth that when we fall we need to pick ourselves up and learn from our mistakes, and move on.

For too long failure has been that final hurdle. Some of the greatest discoveries and achievements in history have been through things going wrong; penicillin being one example.

Overcoming adversity is the greatest lesson we can teach our youth. If we look to Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) as an example, he overcame many obstacles and tragedies and learnt from his mistakes to become a leader of a community. We all need positive role models, whether it is our parents or a teacher; if someone instils a positive message into our youth, they will succeed.
