I agree and at the same time disagree with this quote. I agree because sometimes some people want to people with someone that is going to be sucessful in their lifes so that, the person sucessing can give him/her guidees and tips on what to do and where to go. But i disagree because sometimes some people just want to be "popular" for all the dumb actions they do and they get known for that and they don't even pay alot atention on there academics and they just want to fool around. That is why i agree and disagree with this quote.

Personally, i do agree with this quote because you have to know what you are going to do for your self and already know the plan when you take the role of a leader. If you can't already do it your self then you shouldn't take that role to lead a person or persons

i agree because if no one wants to follow you than theres no point. you cant be a leader. you have to be convincing to encourage people to follow you. you have to know what you want and what youre doing in order to be sucessful in leading.for example. like most people wouldnt want to follow someone thats going to an important place at a certain time but theyre not sure how to get there.
if its something imporant that they have to be in time for i think most people would rather follow someone who does know how to get there

I agree becuase if you want to be a leader you need to know where your going and help people so that they know where there going. This isn't so much about popularity becuase to be a leader and to be popular and toatlly different things. Popular is to have everyone like but they won't follow you and to be a leader is when you have followers you don't even know your a leader until when somebody tells you your a great leader and then in you head you think hey that is kind if true. well thats what i think.

i agree and disagree with this quote because people want to follow someone who knows the right way and knows what path to take. they want to follow someone who knows is might be succesful and become someone. the leader could be showing them the way to success. i also disagree because some people might to learn from their own mistakes and want to learn by themselves. some people also may think that following is not good. also because if you follow someone, you may want to do exactly what that person wants to do and you won't be unique or special in your own way! you might be something your not!

I agree with this quote because people have to like you to follow you, and they're not going to follow a dumb person who doesn't know what he's doing. to be a leader you have to be smart and successful in life. many people follow rich and famous people just for money and fame. but there are some people that do dumb things and become popular like at school, some people do really dumb things and they think they're funny and they keep doing it to try to become a leader.

I agree that this is the right quote because i have experienced this due to the fact that i have been in online teams and around 2 or 3 of them have disbanded due to their leader not knowing what to do or because they were never there when needed. in result i recently took over a team due to a dispute between our team leader and our vice team leader for that i was runner up to be new leader and my vice leader was a person i chose who knew what to do and was there all the time. That's the reason i agree with this quote. a leader isnt a leader if he isnt there to lead and if they are lost.

i agree with this quote and disagree becuase to be a leader you have to be doing something right or are good at it and the people follow you but you also everyone can be doing something wrong and everyone is folowing that person but your doing the right thing and know where your going but have no followers and be a leader to your future

i agree with this quote because if you are following a person then you would want to make sure that they are going to be someone in life and lead you into a good future. you wouldn't want someone who is going to prison in their future so you have to make sure you following the right person. if you follow the wrong person then he is going to get you into a lot of trouble and he is going to make you feel guilty for a lot of things you should'nt have done. you have to make sure of who you are following in life isnt going to mess up your future. To succeed in life you need a good role model.

Michael Ramirez:

I agree with the quote because it's true to be a leader you have to be very important in certain ways. You have to do good things in order to succeed. To be a leader you have to know where you are going so then everybody will follow to see you are responisible for where you are leading them. I guess what the quote of the guy means in order other people do the same ways you have to demonstrate it first and people will follow.
People first need a leader so they be sure and comfortable for everybody in life to see he is imporant and he knows where he is taking for the followers. A leader that is not a leader that doesn't have any follower is because he is not leading them the right way. He is not doing something right where people don't trust him and he will never succeed with the wrong paths, ways, or directions he is leading or taking.

i agree with this auote because if you are a leader and you want people to follow you,they wont follow you if your not sure where you are going. you have to be confident and know your are a leader. people wpuld follow you if they think you are confident. people would want to follow you if you are a succesful person.they you suceed waht you do ,so they would want to follow you.

"To be a leader, you have to make people want to follow you, and nobody wants to follow someone who doesn't know where he is going."
I Agree with this quote because to be a leader you should know what your doing, and for people to follow you it would have to be for a reason why they would want to follow you. Being a leader is always something you want to be!
NOT a follower! for example if your a leader you know what you want in life and what you are doing, like when your heading towards a good Direction people want to be like you and they look up to you...people who follow you show that they want to be heading the same steps as you and Do whatever you do.you will guide them to there success,But its not good being a folower it's better for you to be a leadera and make the right choices in your life and someone else choices, you'll learn from your mistakes not others.

I agree because when you are following someone you expect them to know where they are going. No one wants to follow someone who is lost or confused and doesn’t know what they are going to do because you would also make the followers be like you. The people who are following are expecting something good out of you because you might be someone they look up to and expect success. No one wants to follow someone who hasn’t figured out where they are going or where they want to be.

I agree with the quote because "To be a leader, you have to make people want to follow you, and nobody wants to follow someone who doesn't know where he is going." No one would follow someone doesn't that have a future, that doesn't know what he doing. But there are people that follow ignorant people that do drug or do something bad because they think it cool. But it not. But at the same time you should not have to follow some one because you don't need someone to be telling you what to do when you know what good for you. And if you are a leader them be a good example to them and show them that you could do any thing you want to be successful.

i agree with this quote because everyone wants to be successful and if they follow someone who doesn't know where they are going they wont be going anywhere either.people want to be successful and to do so they should follow someone that knows what they want and works for it,has a goal in their life.nobody want to follow a person that is doing bad things like doing drugs and giving no meaning to their life. do the right things and people will look up to you and would want to follow you.but you should be a leader not a follower.

I agree with the quote because nobody would like to follow someone who doesn't have a path to follow or somehwere to head. If that person is going nowhere, they are going to lead the people who want to follow that person nowhere. many people follow others because they seem to be well known or popular and that person may not even be planning on doing something, but those poeple follow not because the are leaders, but because of popularity or publicity. For example,if someone is going to do something that doesn't make sense and will make a fool of themselves, nobody would follow that person and make a fool of themselves too. If someone has a plan and are ready to take over another group of people, that group of people is going to accept that leader because they know that that person knows where he or she is headed. If someone wants to be a leader, they need to have a plan and direction of where they are going to lead. Unlike peple, sheep follow a herd wherever it goes, and that isn't a smart choice. Following someone who has a plan is a smart choice.

Blogger Anel Cholico said...

I agree with quote because nobody wants to follow someone who has no clue where s/he is going. If you are following someone who doesn't know where to go, that person will probably send you the wrong way.For example if you are following someone who's about to jump off of a cliff I can assure you that, that person doesn't know where s/he is going. Also, some people follow others because of popularity. Just because someone is popular doesn't mean the know what they are doing. Therefore, it is really important to be your own leader for two reasons, number one to be dependent of only yourself and your actions and number two, to not go through the process of picking the wrong person as a leader.

i agree and disagree beacuase success doesnt always come from following people. Also just beacuase people follow you that dosent mean that you are going to succeed in life because life throws diffrent situaltions to u and you might not overcome them and your followers will be really mad beacuase they have noticed that they have just wasted there time following you thinking that your going to succeed..

Blogger i l e a n a said...

I agree and disagree with this quote because sometimes people follow because the want to be noticed and do it for no good. On the other hand when you are a leader you have to make people fallow you, and people follow because they see some kind of interest. In some cases people like to follow a person with goals and a person who wants to succeed.

I agree and disagree with this quote. I agree because sometimes some people want to follow someone that is going to be sucessful in their lifes so that person that is succeeding can help the followers. so a bad reason to follow someone is when someone is just a leader becuase they want to be populer or something. this is going to be a bad person to follow and you wont be successful you will just do bad if you continue to follow the person. thats why is better if you become a good leader instead of a bad one or a follower

i agree with this quote because people want to follow people who have great knowledge and someone who knows things. Being a leader shows people you can be better than people who follow other people, it shows you can be your own person and you dont have to do what other people do, just to make people think your cool.Like they always say "be your own self because everyone else is taken." So i agree with this quote all the way.

I do not agree with this quote because sometimes in life you don’t know exactly where you’re going and you’re not always going to know. Sometimes it’s better to act in the present then to wait and plan something out. There are some leaders who simply act on instinct and listens to their gut. In life you’re not always going to know where you’re going but it’s good to keep in mind that wherever you’re going it should always be moving forward. Sometimes you just have to trust someone to know where they are going. It’s like when you take the bus. You don’t ask him where he’s going you just have to trust that he’s going to end up where you need to be at.

i agree with this quote because a good leader is a strong leader and that is something important in people because no one should follow someone who can not even lead. i also don't think that people should follow any one else because everyone in this world young or old has their own path. this is what i think.

yes i do agree with thizs quote because if you dont know were you are going in life you cant expect anyone to follow you because everyone has there own mind and they can make desicons by themselves. If your not doing anything how can u expect others to sit around and wait till you fiqure something out.You have to be prepared in order to be and leader and yu have to set goals because if you donty there wont be anything to look foward. And if theres nothing to look forward too then you can move forward which means you cant be an leader because your not moving and your staying in a rut.

I agree with this quote because if you do not no where you are going yourself then how can you possibly expect anyone else to follow, you. In order to be a leader, you must knpw where you are going, so that you can be able to lead people and lead them to the right direction. For instance you can go along guaranteeing them that you will lead them to sucess, but if you don't know where you are going you could unfortuanetly lead to failure by accident

"To be a leader, you have to make people want to follow you, and nobody wants to follow someone who doesn't know where he is going."
I agree with this quote because people want to follow someone who knows what they want and know how to get there. because i don't think someone is going to want to follow someone that doesn't have a clear image of were there going. for example when people vote for a president they vote for the one that convinced them that there going to get to the top and be a good country to live in. not the one who doesn't even know why he/she wants to be a president and what there going to do when they are there.tats why i agree with this quote.

i do agree with this quote, to be a leader means that people want to follow your lead they want to be like you. they want you to be their role model, to be the person that mostly everyone wants to be like or look up to. they want to impress you they want you to like them. people will do anything to be your friend. you have to know were you are going, what are you going to do, and most importantly who you are going to be. you have to be able to know who you are before leadiong people who need help. you need to be SUCCESSFUL in what you do and BELIEVE in what you are doing in order to have followers.

I agree with this quote because its true no one wants to follow a someone who doesnt know where they'er going. Its like following a blind man, thinking you'll end up where you want to. But a leader has to set goals, and has to set himself to accomplish those goals. He is a person that marches towards his goals, with people backing him up, knowing that in turn, he will help them with their goals. No one wants to follow someone who doesnt know where they're going, because those types of people are those who need a leader.

I agree with the quote because you always want to be a leader not a follower. When you are a leader you have to know what you want and you have to know you are going. If your going to be a follwer you will not want to follow someone who has nothing done and does not know were they will end up or what they will do but you will want to follow someone who knows exactly what they want and they may even help you.Most likey the leader will be succesful in life if they know where they are going.

yess because if you want to be a leader like a boss or something you got to know where you are going and what your doing especialy if you have workers working for you. for example martin luther king jr was a leader that people followed because he knew what he was doing and what he wanted to get like racism. so if you want to be a leader first know what you are going to do and then be a leader!

Blogger valeria gomez said...

i strongly agree with this quote because if you are a bad person that is non-successful, people wont want to follow you because they might be afraid to end up the same as you. Most people like to be around successful people because they want to have a person to guide them through the right way. To be a leader, you do have to know where you're going and wgat you're doing. You have to be a strong and convincing person and you have to followers. This is why i agree with this quote.

I agree because people who lead are people who know what they want for there future and follower depend on the leaders to tell them what to do. If a leader doesn't know what to do then the followers are wasting there time on a person who doesn't know what to do with there life. A leader is a person who depends on themselves and followers depend on other for advice and help. An example of a leader is the president of the united states, he got to where he is because he was a leader. An example of a follower is probably working at MC Donald's. Both of those examples tells you how far you can go if you believe in yourself.

I do certainly agree with this quote because in order to be a leader you have to be able to giude people in the correct direction and not just hitchhike to some far off land. In order to be a leader you have to know what you are doing, and set an example of what it is to be a good leader. For example no none is going to want to pair up with a person that has no experinece with what they are doing and doesn't care. People are going to want to work with that person that knows what they have to get accomplished and that knows how to be successful. Its like saying would you rather work with someone that doesn't do their work, doesn't care , and is cluless about what they are doing or someone that knows what they are doing and is sure of what they want to accomplish?It speaks for itself.

I agree because if nodoby want's to follow you,you can still be a leader with your education and be the one who gets straight A's and you are the one who is going to be sucessful in life.You can still be a leader in your own group that is if you can teach them how to laed them self.If your the one leading you can tell that person how to lead him in the right direction if his going the wrong direction.

i agree with this quote because you have to know where your going in order for other people to know where your going. if people can see that you are successful and you can achieve what you want, they to will want to follow you but if you dont know what you want it will be you that will be looking up to other people which is not the idea of being a leader. be a leader not a follower and learn from your own mistakes not from other's mistakes.

I agree, a leader has to know where she/he is going. No body follows a person when they don't know where they are going. For Example; Jesus, Son of God, He knew exactly where he was going and look where we are at now, a mass population believes in him. A leader needs to know where he is going, PERIOD.

I do agree with this quote, because most leaders in our world knew what they were going to do. The president makes people follow him and vote for him, why, well because he's a great guy who can lead the whole nation with his cabin because he was a leader in his time. If you're not a leader than that will lead you to no where and you can't do anything about it once it's all said and done. That's why you have to klnow what you're in and you have to believe that you can succeed your expectations and the ones given to you by society.

I think being a leader takes alot of responsablity it depends in what yo are being a leader about. take for example if your a leader at your job it means your a manger and to be that leader you need to make sure that the followers are doing their jobs correctly. being a keader takes trust from your followers, they need to be able to trust that you are their to help them and guide them. so yes i agree that being to be a leader you need your follwers to know that you know what your doing and where your going.

i absolutely agree with this quote. if people don't follow you there is no way that you can be a follower. the only way that someone can be a follower is if they are going after something for a good reason. if someone doesnt know where they are going people are going to be doubting that person because they will most likely not be successful.

yes i agree with the quote. I agree because why would you want to follow someone that doesn't know what they are doing or where they are going. It is better wo follow someone whow does know what they are doing or where they are going. You tend to be more successful. If you follow someone who is doesn't have a job or is always getting into trouble, you are more likely to end up lik them. But if you follow someone who has a good job, works veryhard, or knows how to not get in trouble, you might pick some of their good habits and then you might have people following you.

I agree with this quote because in order for you to be a leader, people will want to follow you. To be a leader you have to know what you're trying to do or where you're going. People aren't going to follow someone who doesn't know what he/she is doing. To be a leader you need to be a successful and a knowledgeable person. For example when a person doesn't how to do something, they are always going to try to find someone who knows how to do what they can't. The person isn't going to go and find help in another who doesn't know either.

To be a leader you have to know what you're doing and where you're going. Nobody would not like to follow someone who does not know where they're going.Nobody would listen to him. A leader has to guide people to make positive choices. People look up to leaders that know what their doing to become successful. People need guidance to become successful. For example: if Barrack Obama didn't know what to do for his term as president he wouldn't become the president of the united states. This is why I agree with this quote.

I actually do agree with this quote because to be a leader you have to know where your going and know what you are doing. To be a leader you have to have a plan to have people follow you and actually make you the leader you want ot be. You have to have a plan to have people actually be there to support you and make you become the leader. People just dont follow you because oh they liked something you said and there right there supporting you. Actually you have encourage them, convince them, and let them know what kind of leader you want to be. Sucess is always the main thing that is occured after. If you had people follow you because of all the work you made to become a leader, you have sucess.

I agree because everyone wants to follow someone that can lead another person to success. People will follow you because they want someone that knows which path to take that will benefit everyone.If no one wants to follow you than there's no point in being a leader. They think that you aren't supportive so you have to show them that you can be supportive and helpful. You have to be convince others that you know how to encourage people and show them/suggest what the best thing is for them.

Well yea i do agree because you wouldnt want to follow a 2year old into a dark cave and not know where you will end up. To be a leader you do need to make people want to follow you by demonstrating that you know what you are doing.....and that they can trust you.People need to be able to trust you in order to follow you.

I agree with this quote because its true you have to be a leader and if your not one your going to want to follow someone that knows what they're doing. I also agree because you can succeed when your a leader and have other people following the same good steps you are taking. I think everyone has a better chanve in succedding when your a leader not a follower.

I think that's true,no body wants to follow someone who doesn't know where there going, because if that person gets lost so will the follower. I think It's better if you make your own mistakes and disitions that way you can learn from them , I also think being indapendant is better than being a follower because followers are like puppets and what makes each person uniqe is the diffrent ideas or opinions people have.

I agree with this quote because you need to go after your purpose in life. People don't want to be with the failures because the failures will bring them down. I personally like to be with the successful people because it's better; you don't want to do dumb things and you want to be successful in life.

I definently agree with this quote because everyone's goals should be along the line of succees and the only way you want to be a follower is by following someone with goals and purpose in life. And when a person follows another person they admire them and like what they are doin so you expect them to be doing good and no one wants to follow a person who doesn't know what they want

I agree with this quote because if you want to be a leader, you have to have followers. But, if you don't have a goal to lead to success, then who will follow you?For example, Martin Luther King was a great leader. Many people followed him because he had a big goal. His goal was to end segregation and for black and whites to have equal rights. So that is an example of an excellent leader.

I think the quote is allright why? I think its allright because if you want someone to follow you you must want them to like you and look up to you. To be a leader you must have the knowledge and courage and your followers must support you. If you people to follow you, you must be capable of demonstrating that you could be a leader. The next thing you must do is tell them where your going to lead them to and how will youi do it, and if theres any danger how will you protect them. I sgree with this quote because it makes sence and its cool....

I believe in this quote yes because if you want to be a leader you have to have a reason to support it. If you just become a leader and you do wrong things people don't want to follow that kind of person.Martin Luther King was a great leader, but his reason was to give blcks and whites equal rights. He wanted racism to stop.If you want to be a leader you need to have something for your followers to believe, support, and reason with what you are trying to lead.

I agree with this quote because you don't want to follow someone who doesn't know where their going because following them means your going to be involved in what they are doing. For example if they go down your going down with them. Its best to be a leader beacause you can get yourself out of your own situations you can go your own way without anyone stopping you because your a leader and not a follower and no one can take that away from you unless you let them

I agree that you SHOULD know where you are heading in life for others to want to follow you, but that is not always the case. I have noticed throughout my life that many people often decide to follow others just to make themselves look good or to somewhat "fit in". This won't usualy lead them to something good in life. I took this path in the past and I don't intend to do it again. People can't always depend on others to do things for them, we must all be leaders in life by being who we really are, not who we are pretending to be.

This quote is saying that you can't guide some one if you are lost. If you have set your goals and finally reach them then others would want to follow you. Not literally following you by walking next to you but they will look up to you and want to follow your footsteps. I agree with this quote because it is true. If you make a goal to graduate high school with honors, and you don't even get passed the ninth grade, no one is going to want to follow in your footsteps.

I agree with this quote because if you want to follow someone in life you must be sure if they are smart and they want to be someone in life and not just be some random person you dont know what they are going to do with there lifes. If someone doesnt know here they are going people are going to be doubting him and they are most likely not going to be successful in life. Some people might also think following others is not a good idea then they wouldnt want to follow someone and thats why i agree with this quote.

i kinda agree because why would anyone want to follow someone who doesn't know what they are doing. I also agree because someone wants to follow someone that is successful and that person can help another person being successful by showing them and giving them advice.for example if you want to go to a place but you don't know where its at then people get mad at you and they don't want to be with you anymore or go with you to places.

I agree with this saying because if you are a good leader and you know what your doing people are not just willing to follow you but s well as even act like you for an example my cousin graduated from college and has he masters degree i also would like to do that one and she even engourages and teach me some of the thigs she did or would have do to get to where she is now. i also agree because no one wonts to follow a person that doesnt know what they are doing or have a good mind set or even any type of goal in there life because they are most likely not going to go anywhere in life for example why would you won to follow someone who is a gang banger? Most of they time they end up getting killed and nothing ever really comes good from doing that.

I agree with this because if you want someone or more people to hear what you have to say you want people to fallow you and you want them to believe in you to get your right. It was like Martin Luther king Jr he wanted people to hear his rights of giving black people to do everything what white people do because it’s not fair for them. But the way he did it is by talking to his people and explaining how will it work and changes the world also disagree only a little because sometimes it won’t work, maybe people can be lying about it and not be serious.

I agree with this quote because, when you are following somebody you want them to be successful in their life especially if your following them so they can lead you in the right path and won't send you the wrong way.If you don't know what your doing or where your going in life how do you expect somebody else to follow you and go by what you do and your actions.a good leader has to make good decisions make mistakes but learn from them the good way.

I agree because it's true people want to follow someone that knows what there headed for . Also because you don't want to follow something that isin't even sre of him/her self. Also you can't be a follwer fi noone foll you . A leader is someone other people look up to and know that there gunna go do something useful . People are going to follow someone that knows what there gunna do and also someone that can back themselves up.

To be a leader, you have to make people want to follow you, and nobody wants to follow someone who doesn't know where he is going."


I strongly agree with this qoute. Becuase people who been in and out of foster homes sometimes be mest up. So they dont know what they wanna do so they follow somebody and if your a leader they're gonna follow you.

To be a leader you have to know where your going before you lead. When they see oh your good and all and oing good they want to be like you . So they follow you and if you see them foloowing you , you is going to have to keep it up. keep doing good and be proud that you have people who wanna foloow you.

Once you get that chance you cannot go bad because people is not going to like that. But once your a leader you cant stop being leader,because you have people who have faith in you and if you break them they are gonna do they own things.

But the things there gonna be douing is not go be goood and there going to blam you , why? Because you gave up.

I agree with the statement that to be a leader you must know were your going. I feel this way because why would people want to follow after some one who has no clue on what they are doing. If I was a leader of a group, and I told my group lets go this way and we will be to school in 10 minutes, and they all come now my group and I are all late because of me. Its not good because that means I just caused my whole group to be late, but if I was a leader that knew what I was doing my group would have been on time and would never mind walking with me to school. This is shows that to be a leader you must have already planed what you will do to be that leader. So the main reason you have to know what you are doing is so no body is lost along with you.

Well honestly i pretty much do agree with this quote because it really is true in order for someone to be a leader you have to know where exactly you are going. And yea nobody wants to follow someone who dosen't know where he is going. The followers who don't know what they are doing want to follow someone who knows where they are going and taking their followers. For example, in a family, if a 10-year-old kid doesnt know what to sometimes so he looks up to his older brother, the 16-year-old, well he is a drug addict, alcoholic, a gangsta and is bald. The younger brother is going to wanna follow his older brothers steps because he is the older one and supposevly "The smart-one".

I will have to disagree with this quote because to be a leader you will just need to be smart or popular or I have lots of power then people would listen to you. so you are either are very smart person with good reasonings or very popular and people all ready following you or just have lots of power and people would have to do it.

i agree because i leader is someone who shows others how to do things help people that dont know what to do, a leader is a person who is responisble for more than just one person. A leader is someone you can look up too and always know they you can go to them for help.a leader is someone that is always doing there best and they dont go halfway at all they give there all the time.

I agree with this quote because if a person does'nt know where their going he will not get anywhere and will not succeed, nethier will the followers. Followers depend on the leader and if the leader does'nt know what to do nethier will the followers, so the followers will now become leader and become independent. For example i came to this school depending on teachers to show me what i have not yet learned, if my teachers dont know what their doing, I and probably other student will go to another school where we can actually learn something because Animo didnt help at all. This is why i agree with this quote.

I agree with this quote because if you don't know what your doing, who will follow you. But at the same time, you don't HAVE to make people follow you, they can make their own decision. Probably you’re just acting like you’re a leader and people follow you, you might lead them in the wrong path. Also, if you’re a true leader, people will follow you on their own because they see how successful you are. Being a successful leader is good because you can guide other people and they can be successful, too. For little kids, you can also be a role model to them and they look up to you like an important leader.

I do agree with this quote because the message it is trying to get across is true. When people follow someone it’s because that person will usually know what they want. Part of being a leader is being able to know what your goals are and trying to accomplish them, setting an example for everyone else. For example, even on a simple thing like a group activity, you could usually tell who is the leader of the project. The leader is most likely the person who knows what they want to do and accomplish with the project. People tend to follow the person who knows what to do and do everything that the person tells them to do because they feel they could trust that what the person is telling them to do is correct.
