There is a single reason why 99 out of 100 never become leaders.
That is their unwillingness to pay the price of responsibility. By the price of responsibility I mean hard driving, continuous work….. the courage to make decisions … the scourging honesty of never fooling yourself about yourself.
You travel the road to leadership heavenly laden. While the nine-to five-o’clock worker takes ease, you are toiling upward through the night…
Any new effort, the psychologists say, wears a new groove in the brain. And the grooves that lead to the heights are not made between nine and five….. They are burned in by the midnight oil.
OWEN D. YOUNG
Responsibility is the emotional and intellectual willingness to be fully accountable for our actions and always willing to accept the consequences of our actions whether good or bad. Accepting that the inner power and strength to succeed or fail is ours and ours alone. Blame no one but ourselves for the choices we make in life.
