Leadership is rooted in your commitment to see yourself as a leader and the persistence to keep practicing – regardless of whatever challenges, setbacks, mistakes or roadblocks you face. Remember Calvin Coolidge’s great quote?
“Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not: nothing is more common than unsuccessful [people] with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not: the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.”
