As a leader you must be able to recognize the power of your influence. Moreover, you must be able to recognize the type of energy your'e exuding most consistently.
Because as a leader people depend on you and your influence... It's your responsibility to make sure the energy your most consistently giving back is constructive.
When we allow ourselves to become defined by struggle our energy becomes toxic, and for someone who is looked at as a leader this is especially difficult.
That is why we must refuse to let our scars define us.... Because we all have the potential of taking on the responsibility of being a leader (even if it means the only person we're leading is ourselves).
That accountability can hold us to a standard; a standard that should be ambitious, goal oriented and grounded by quality.
Refuse to let your struggles define you - Hold yourself to a standard of excellence that includes a commitment to consistently maintaing a positive attitude and constructively achieving significance.
The ability to do this will automatically make you a leader of your individual efforts, and ultimately it will attract others so that you're not only positively changing your life, but constructively influencing others, too.
Be happy and keep it moving!
