No leader emerges without self-discipline. It takes one who is willing to delay gratifications and let go unnecessary pleasures to become a leader. There may be no one to tell you what is wrong or right but you must be willing to motivate yourself into avoiding those things that could deter you from achieving your goals of becoming a great leader.
Everything begins to die from its very day of existence. For whatever has been created to remain alive, there must be a deliberate action of development. That you gave birth to a child does not mean the child would grow to become an adult. There is a need to constantly feed the child, enrol the child in school and keep the child healthy by avoiding diseases and germs if that child must eventually become an adult. Many people think and assume that their work of learning stops when they graduate from college or the university but this is very far from the truth. To emerge as a great leader, you must constantly put yourself in the position of learning. Self-development has to be intentional. This was how we developed from primary school when our parents had to take us to school even though we did not want to be there at the beginning. Our parents may no longer be there but we must push and motivate ourselves to keep developing.
