Many entrepreneurs will talk about the mastering of one’s self and one’s mind. It is surprising how little self-awareness is found in today’s CEO’s and politicians. The world is morphing into a place where the outward change triumphs over the inward change, making great havoc for those who can’t hold it together when things get tough. While this may be a great way to appear to be a leader, true leadership is found in the ability to have excellent self-discipline and awareness, in order to pursue things consistently and with success. Execution cannot be complete without a leader’s ability to master his own mind.]
Take some time to think about some qualities of yourself that you might not be comfortable with, or might seem unfamiliar with entirely. These are the weak points that need to be targeted to create a great leader out of yourself. Focus on the things that you are unaware of, and take a moment to think about them, and grasp the elements about you that makes you human. Only then can you begin to build upon yourself and make a great leader. Qualities cannot be retained if the person gaining them knows nothing about themselves.
If leadership is discovered this way, then the improvements of your potential will come naturally, instead of using social status or lucky breaks to prove yourself as a leader. Jesus Salas Radio is an example of this type of leadership. His career in the radio broadcasting industry started at 16, and because of his uncanny ability to mold himself, he earned his first promotion at 19 as a program director. 22 years later he became the Executive Vice President of Programming for a national radio station, a position that could have never been attained without the proper leadership.
