He should also has a growing mindset that allows him to adapt to the changes through different periods of times, and learn as much as he can throughout his life. Another important factor in becoming is education. If you were not well educated, you would not be successful. In outliers, Malcolm Gladwell stated, “The people stand before kings may look like they did it all by themselves. But in fact they are invariably beneficiaries of hidden advantages and extra-ordinary opportunities and cultural legacies that allow them to learn and work hard and make sense of the world in ways others cannot.” (19).
When teachers have this outlook on teaching they end up with high levels of knowledge, but do not have the instructional methods and strategies needed to relay their knowledge to their students. Content knowledge is no more important than process knowledge, both are essential. What we teach and how we teach it are very important to one another. Although both of these types of knowledge are essential, the development of one does not improve the other. Content knowledge can be improved through further studies, but if the strategies used to relay that knowledge are subpar, teaching will still be ineffective.

Not only is education important for a society as a whole, but it is a keystone to a healthy democratic society. A society without an emphasis on education will stagnate. Education is essential not only for humanity, but for democratic society. A democratic society needs educated people. Students need to be educated, not only because they may be called upon to make important decisions that affect their societies, but because through their education they may be able to keep their government from becoming corrupt.
To me, leadership is more than a title. It is more than just being in charge. Leadership is honestly, learning, listening, and most importantly application. Leadership means going the extra mile or two, doing the right thing no matter who’s looking, staying encouraged and encouraging other even when times are hard and you have every reason to quit. Leadership doesn’t mean you’re rich, well known, liked, or respected but it does mean you are a passionate, caring, and authentic.
When you think about your life, what is something that you would have a hard time living without? While there are many things that come to mind, I think one of the most important is education. Think of where you would be if you were uneducated, your life would probably not be nearly as comfortable as it is right now. Malcolm X and Paulo Freire are two men who also believe very strongly in the importance of education. They both have amazing stories and ideas.
