The tough truths of self-leadership aren’t meant to frustrate or demotivate you. They’re meant to challenge you, because if you understand the hard work of self-leadership and pour yourself into it without expectations of others or an entitled attitude, you will develop the character and core of an extraordinary leader. You will begin to lead yourself well, and from that place you’ll be equipped to lead others better.
