No one said leadership was easy, and it's definitely not for the faint of heart. To become one of the greats of leadership, it requires making some very tough and unpopular decision. Accepting responsibility when things go wrong while giving away the credit when things go well; running headfirst in the fire when everyone else is running the next direction.
Leadership can be challenging, but when you really think about it, leading people is one of the most fulfilling and rewarding experiences anyone can have since you have the opportunity to change the lives of people every day. People look to you for guidance, strength, hope, inspiration, motivation, and a lot more. Leadership will have its challenging days, but the satisfaction of knowing that you are impacting and making a difference every day far outweighs any challenge on any given day.
