Are you beginning to get clear on who you are, why you’re here, and what you want? Are you beginning to see that you can get what you want? I want you to get what you want. Successful people are very clear on who they are, what they want, and how they are going to get it. Most people usually are not clear on who they are, do not know what they want, and do not know where they are going. They are clearer on what they don’t want. We are all in the “most people” category at some point in our life. I want to wake everyone up out there that needs to answer these questions.
It takes guts to go after what you want. It takes self-leadership and an ability to lead yourself. Why is it important? Once you lead yourself, you get what you want. Once you master the basic qualities of a leader, you make things happen. All great leaders focus on leading themselves, and if you want to get what you want, you must be able to do this more often than not. Have you ever noticed that everyone you look up to does a better job at leading themselves than you do? It’s true. People who get what they want have learned to lead themselves. If they fall down, they get back up and push harder and further.
When you think of a strong leader, what qualities come to mind? Do they include decisiveness, commitment to excellence, and self-disciplined? Are they known for perseverance, vision, and a “do it now” attitude? Do they know to live for the experience and fulfillment, not just the achievement? My guess is they are and they do. Self-leadership is a lifetime process and the book you have in your hands, my friend, will give you one hell of a head start! Growth is always intentional, always.
