In this interview James Cameron states that he is not a “natural leader”. To be successful we need to be leaders but sometimes it doesn’t come natural. Often we need to learn how to become a successful leader. The big question is how?

James Cameron enforces that to be successful you have to discover your life purpose. Once that happens your bone-deep passion and perseverance will overcome all obstacles. He also claims that you have a responsibility to your talent – to nurture it and to practice it over and over again until you become a true master. But, being passionate, having perseverance and talent doesn’t mean you automatically become a leader.

However, when you expand your talents with passion, people recognize you and your achievements, and as a result you gain self-confidence. Self-confidence gives you that added strength to become a successful leader.

Cameron’s passion, talent and leadership is illustrated in the dazzling visual and groundbreaking effects he creates in his movies. He developed the technology to create the cyborg in the block-buster movie Terminator 2, the underwater creatures in the movie The Abyss and the much talked about upcoming animated film Avatar – a new computer generated 3D epic of an unfound alien world.

    I really appreciate you posting a link to my leadership/street cred article. Definitely enjoyed the video of James Cameron, and I definitely agree that leadership can be learned, practiced and maybe perfected.

    Keep up the great posts.

    I absolutely love the emphasis on being responsible for your own talents. Thats actually something that prompted me to leave a job that wasn’t going anywhere and move somewhere that I only know one person. All of this in order to attempt doing just that.

    Great interview and article. For myself I know that following your passion is the key to success and the key to becoming a good leader is to be direct and clear when making desicions.

    The leadership skills some possess are always thought by many to have come naturally for them. Great article to prove otherwise. I believe the power of the mind can conquer even the impossible. Charisma being one of them.

    Good points!

    …to which I’d like to add, another dimension of leadership is seeing a need and inspiring us to meet that need together.

    I agree Kye – A need for something can lead to inspiration which in turn creates leaders.

    Aman – you are absolutely right. You need to be decisive and clear about your decisions. It is one of the Laws of success in Napoleon Hill’s book.
