Each morning I climb two flights of stairs. These stairs have come to represent something significant as I climb to the office where I work.
It takes desire to reach the top.
It takes energy to step up to the next level.
It takes focus to prevent falling.
It takes developing a certain level of habit, almost second nature.
These stairs could represent hundreds of ideas. However, it takes little effort to connect the dots in leadership. Read the list above again with a connection to leadership.
The list is not exhaustive, but successful leaders understand the “will to want to” when it comes to reaching the top. Successful leaders are willing to exert whatever energy it takes to accomplish the task. They do not allow distractions to cause them to lose focus. The habits developed daily as leaders not only become second nature, they are developed as first nature. The result produces success in leadership.
