When you think you are not ready or not worthy of becoming a great leader, stop and ask yourself, if not you then who?
Each of has the same opportunity to accept the responsibility to join the ranks of successful LEADERS.
Find excerpt from article below:
When emotional intelligence first appeared to the masses, it served as the missing link in a peculiar finding: people with average IQs outperform those with the highest IQs 70% of the time. This anomaly threw a massive wrench into what many people had always assumed was the sole source of success—IQ. Decades of research now point to emotional intelligence as the critical factor that sets star performers apart from the rest of the pack.
Emotional intelligence is the “something” in each of us that is a bit intangible. It affects how we manage behavior, navigate social complexities, and make personal decisions that achieve positive results. Emotional intelligence is made up of four core skills that pair up under two primary competencies: personal competence and social competence.

Is great achievement born of great sacrifice?
For the answer: Watch Casey Neistat’s final VLOG linked below.
Casey Neistat started a VLOG in March 2015. Today he decided to stop daily uploads of his amazingly engaging video stories (VLOG). Casey amassed nearly 6,000,000 subscribers from the beginning through today, that’s 18 months of uploading a thoughtful, often funny yet always compelling video each day. Within hours of each upload, his videos would garner 100’s of thousands of views, which is simply amazing. How much money did Casey earn from his VLOG, suffice it to say the answer is LOTS.
So why would one of the planet’s most successful VLOGgers decide to kill the goose that consistently laid golden eggs, every day? Well, here is what Casey said on today’s final VLOG episode, I paraphrase:
“With each success comes a bigger more audacious goal”
Casey’s VLOG had become too easy to produce. He began the VLOG in order to ignite and inspire his creative talents each day. In order to rise to the occasion to create something awesome everyday, he created a system that made conceiving, creating, editing and uploading great content everyday. In the end nearly eighteen months after the VLOG began Casey decided the thrill was gone. The thrill of facing the daily deadline, the daily creative challenge, the challenge of discovering something about his life that would be worth sharing with millions of his followers everyday, the thrill was gone.
Casey decided to kill his golden goose in order to rise above the success of his VLOG, to strive to continue to achieve more, be more to find a new muse a new inspiration.
So what’s next?
Surely Casey will find what he is looking for and continue to create, innovate and amaze us all!
Remember, what Casey knows, great achievement is born of great sacrifice!
So what’s the lesson learned from Casey Neistat is embodied in this question:
“What are you willing to sacrifice in order to become better at delivering what you offer the people you serve?”
Working with a half heart is like running with one leg. We’ll get passed up.
Michael Hyatt keeping it simple.
Leadership is service. Normally we hold back because we don’t want to be seen as driven by ego. But that just means we’re focusing too much on what others might think about us. Leadership is not about us. It’s about the people we’re trying to help.
