One of the biggest mistakes you can make as an emerging leader is to be ignorant about who you would like to be as a leader.
When you do that, you’ll end up being all tings to all people. And that’s a dangerous place to be.
Instead, you have more to win than lose by being clear about the type of leader you would like to become. That way, it becomes easier for you to find the resources you need to become that leader. You’ll also know what to avoid as you mold and shape yourself into the leader you want to become.
Remember, everything starts with being not doing. Therefore, you’ll only get to where you want to go when you know where you want to go.
