John Paul Jones A True Leader Leadership is a trait that not many people are able to show Everybody has the ability to be a good leader but there are only a select few who are able to express their leadership qualities When we are born we are all the same then as years go on people learn different things and express ourselves differently A good leader must always lead by example so most of our great leaders come from a family of leaders John Paul Jones is an exception to this theory He was one of the greatest leaders that the United States Navy has seen John Paul Jones was from a poor family and he always dreamed of coming to America He started showing signs of good leadership at an early age When he came to America he was unable to neither speak the language nor read it One of the principals of a true leader is to know yourself and seek self-improvement John Paul Jones knew who he was and he sought every opportunity to improve himself When he actually got to America he fell in love with it and he was set from then on to improve himself to American standards He learned to avoid the low company on the shore and to associate himself with the gentlemen He took every opportunity to meet gentlemen listening to their conversations and imitating their manners and speech He was able to teach himself to write and speak the appropriate language of the Americans In fact his letters that he wrote were marked as more superior than those of officers who had a formal education He also learned how to navigate on his own which is truly a difficult task John Paul Jones truly improved himself better as a gentleman John Paul Jones finally got luck on his side when he was offered a free ride home on the ship
