Leaders are not morally-bound to infuse others with greatness. The greatest of leaders, however, tap the fountain of greatness found deep within us all.
At some point on your journey you’ll find yourself questioning who you are and whether you’ve made the right choices. Sure, it helps at times to reflect and be critical of yourself and the choices you’ve made—this can sharpen your edge, create positive change, and foster new opportunities. But, before you get too critical, remember there’s honor in strong and selfless leadership. Be sure not to think too much about how things could’ve been if you had made your choices differently. It’s a destructive waste of time—and you can’t go back and change what you did yesterday. Instead, look toward the future—take responsibility for your choices, and keep reminding yourself of the privilege it is to be a leader. Are you at peace with your leadership style?
