One of the most remarkable hallmarks of greatness is leadership. However, being a great leader requires more than having the ability to command power and earn respect. At its core, leadership is having the heart to create a meaningful and long-lasting impact on others. Such is the case with business author Asthon Thomas, a visionary leader whose primary goal is to touch lives, inspire action, and spark positive change. After having authored two incredible books, he is now releasing his third written work, Leaders are Human, which is already available on Amazon.
In an interview, Thomas shared that he wanted his third book to be more than just another project. According to the luminary, Leaders are Human is a deep-rooted culmination of his thoughts about the difficulties and rewards of genuine leadership. He said his book is the result of his years of business experience, which includes mentoring future leaders.
In Leaders are Human, Thomas recounts his personal journey to leadership success and uses it as an example for those who want to reach the pinnacles of their respective endeavors. On top of that, his book also contains valuable lessons that he accumulated along the way, dispelling the notion that failure is the opposite of success. He wants to send the message that failures and rejections are all crucial and indispensable elements of triumph and victory.
Thomas believes that the most important thing a person can do to become a successful leader is to pursue education and gain exposure consistently. In addition, people must also remind themselves that they are just humans, vulnerable to making mistakes. “Leadership is a journey characterized by constant change. As a leader, there is always something new to learn, and there are always new ways to grow,” the business author said.
Heavily determined to fulfill his lifelong mission of helping people embrace their full potential, Thomas uses his wisdom and knowledge to promote empowerment and facilitate success for go-getters worldwide. At the heart of his purpose-driven efforts lies the recognition that not everyone has the opportunity and set of resources to transform into the best versions of themselves. For this reason, he addressed himself to the challenge of becoming a reliable source of insight and inspiration for aspirants and dreamers from all walks of life.
“I wanted to write a book that would help people realize that leaders are also human,” Ashton revealed. “We live in a society that stigmatizes failure, especially among those in leadership positions. It is true that each of us possesses a unique set of strengths and weaknesses; however, the manner in which we utilize these characteristics is what ultimately determines our level of success,” he also pointed out.
With his latest book, Ashton has reached another significant milestone in his flourishing career as an author, entrepreneur, and business coach. With no plans of slowing down anytime soon, he envisions himself reaching out to a larger and more diverse audience. “I want my message to reach as many people as possible,” he shared. Ashton’s Leaders are Human is expected to hit Barnes and Noble and Walmart in the near future.
