Of late, I have found myself in situations that test my leadership skills / qualities. There’s a little evil voice that keeps questioning if truly my team and I will manage to fulfill our mandate and successfully so. But then there’s the stronger voice that reminds me I was selected from a large pool of applicants in a competitive process and offered a higher poster than I’d applied for. I choose to listen to the latter voice because it is the voice that I trust and believe in.
However, I acknowledge distractions will always be there, sometimes confidence will wane, but I am determined and working towards success.
I want to build a powerful team to ensure a powerful brand. I want to excel in all areas of my life, after all, I am my own leader before I lead others.
Leaders aren’t born, they are made. And they are made just like anything else, through hard work. And that’s the price we’ll have to pay to achieve that goal, or any goal.
~ ~Vince Lombardi
Hold yourself responsible for a higher standard than anybody expects of you. Never excuse yourself.
