When situations test and challenge you at work or in life, how do you respond?
It is very easy to breeze through when everything is going as per plan. But, the true test of your character is when things get out of control and don’t go as planned. Do you freeze and get stuck with analysis paralysis, unable to take decisive action? Or, do you take charge of the situation and get things done.
Leadership is not just about leading others. It is firstly, and more importantly, about how you lead yourself. Do you cower down, giving up at the first brush of difficulty, or do you take the knock on the chin and make yourself count. True leadership is about assuming personal responsibility and taking charge of any situation, trusting your instincts to create positive outcomes no matter the intensity of the challenge.
Whatever be the situation, you will feel in control only when you take charge. Your real leadership shines through in moments of challenge and not during moments of ease. So make those difficult moments count !!
