Good leaders must believe in the existence of unique talents in their subordinates. We must avoid labeling individuals based on their past performance in a given situation.
We need to at least believe in our own untapped potential! I! t is easy and popular to blame those around us and our circumstances. It appears harder but is more useful to examine if we can do something to achieve better success, if there are great things in ourselves and our lives that we are not utilizing.
Of course, achieving anything of value requires our effort, a willingness to step up and forward.
