Rahul Gandhi is one of the most trolled men on this planet. His intelligence has been incessantly lampooned. Barbs and insults have constantly hurled at his family. His ability to lead men has always been questioned by others. And, yet, Congress president Rahul Gandhi soldiers on.
Leading a political party is a tall order, but Rahul has now proved that he possesses the leadership qualities that can give shape to a new, stronger Nation. Here are some life-changing lessons to be learned from Rahul Gandhi

The mentor: Rahul Gandhi has always been a remarkable guide and a guru to the Congress rank and file, many of whom had become despondent after the drubbing that the party has received in the year 2014 polls. All that is now history, Rahul has finally taken command of a party that was down and out and brought it right back into the reckoning by just leading it from the front.

The motivator: The Congress president’s ability to catalyse his party into his actions and re-energise his team has already begun to pay rich dividends. He seems to have breathed a new life into the Congress workers and supporters who have shed their misery and are now enthused to take on the BJP side, which has gone on the defensive without knowing how to tackle Rahul’s persistent attacks.

The communicator: Possessed with strong communication skills, Rahul Gandhi has somehow managed to get his thoughts and ideas not just to Congress supporters but also to the nation. His powerful speeches and statements have already begun to dent the BJP’s carefully crafted image of a pro-poor, non-corrupt and nationalist party. As the country is getting closer to the year 2019 elections, Rahul’s attack on the ruling party will become stronger.

The visionary: When the Congress was down and out after the year 2014 elections, the nation thought it would become ‘Congress mukt’ soon. However, the naysayers had not considered the quiet confidence and strength of Rahul Gandhi. When others could barely see any chance of the Congress party growing into a formidable challenger to the Bharatiya Janata Party, Rahul could clearly visualize the future for his party. He realized that there are many challenges before him, but the roadmap which has he has laid out for the Congress shows that he has made party workers aware of the strategy that will help them all to achieve their audacious goals.

The calculated risk-taker: The Gandhi scion is fully cognizant of the fact that when an opportunity comes knocking by, one shouldn’t complain about the noise but embrace it with open arms. He has always been ready for all unpredicted breaks that present themselves when one takes bold steps. As in business, so in politics, Rahul has begun to take calculated risks now and these measures taken by him seemed to have opened up new avenues for him and the Congress to explore and exploit. Rahul’s risk-taking ability shows his growing confidence and that he has shed his fear of failure.
