Leadership is for everyone. If you can breath you can lead.
It is really the single most important discipline required to create success in business.
Leaders are those individuals who do the things that failures aren't willing to do, even though they might not like doing it either. They have the discipline to do what they know to be important and right, versus what's easy and fun.
It's not that leaders don't have a great time, they definitively do. Because of their ability to create success and lasting positive results, they end up having far more joy and delight that those who do not practice leadership. Few thing generate as much happiness as knowing that you are fully realizing your genius, doing brilliant work and spending your life to the fullest.
Leadership is not only something to do at work, rather is something to practice on your daily activities and life: leadership in our health, in our finances, with our loved ones, within our community and most of all with ourselves (self-leadership) - if you can not lead yourself, you will never be able to lead anyone else around you.
Leaders are those who are content but never satisfied in the sense that they always crave for improvement. They tend to look for improvement in everything possible in a daily basis, relentlessly and with passion.
Leaders are those that realize that each person creates their own destiny. They never let themselves down even in adversity, they never resign to mediocrity or miss opportunities, they never blame others - instead;they are the ones that take responsibility, always look to better themselves, the people around them and society in general. They leave a legacy of success.
Success is created through the performance of a few small daily disciplines that stack up over time to produce achievements far beyond anything you could have ever planned for. Failure on the other hand, is nothing more than the inevitable outcome of a few small acts of daily neglect performed consistently over time.
Anyone can reach success if if they consistently do the right things. Leaders know that trough daily life efforts, the harvest will come - they have faith, discipline and patience.
Consistency and sustained changed only happens when we shift at an emotional level rather than at a logical level - you want to have it, create it,experience it, enjoy it. The key for leadership is emotion, energy, passion. The more you own your power to make choices, the more powerful your choices become.
Awaken you inner leader !
