LEADERSHIP is not about title or privileges. It’s not about status nor is it about money and authority over others. It’s not about dominance and delegation.
LEADERSHIP is a lonely path of pain and sacrifice. It is Is about doing what others say is impossible. Leadership is about making sure that team member returns safely and that a child doesn’t lose his dad. It’s about about strategies developed at ungodly hours and involves waking up when everyone is asleep. Leadership is about doing what you know will put others in harm’s way. It is not about enjoying the fruits of your labor because there are always new heights to climb after each level of success. Leadership is not glorious. Its pleasures are few and fleeting and never always enjoyed.
