The leader you become depends largely on what you think of yourself. When you believe in being a positive influence, you’ll be more positive. The critical question to ask yourself is: Who do you want to be?
When you want to be a leader who recognizes and supports others, you’ll find ways to do so more often. When you think of yourself as a leader who wants to be a great decision-maker, you’ll spend the time to improve your decision-making skills.
By first deciding what kind of leader—be it as a spouse, parent, friend and/or mentor—you want to be, you will have taken the first step toward becoming that leader.
