Everyone is a leader. The majority of us, by choice, elect to lead an army of one. The decision to lead ourselves is important. In this writers opinion, we consistently make choices to take personal responsibility for many of our actions or we face a dreadful reality of living under the continual leadership of another. I can’t say I personally know… one single individual with healthy capabilities that willingly allows another to completely lead their life.
Some of us elect to personally grow in our leadership skills. We actively pursue opportunities to exercise those desires and acquire the necessary skills to serve and lead others. Over time some of us will lead a handful of others, some legions and others nations. To do so requires commitment, a commitment to invest time learning, practicing, growing, failing and of course succeeding. Growing in a leadership role is much like any vocation. It requires patience, discipline and focused learning.
“Patience, persistence and perspiration make an unbeatable combination for success” ~Napoleon Hill
