Developing the leader within you and the leaders around you calls for a great deal of self discipline. In the book Developing the Leaders Around You, John Maxwell teaches that great leaders always have self discipline. Potential leaders typically demonstrate self discipline in the areas of time (how they use and manage it) as well as in their emotions. If you want to lead well, take stock of how you are using your time. Are you setting short and long term goals for yourself to make the most effective use of your time? As well, do you know how to take control your emotions especially as it relates to others? Self discipline is a must.
When a leader exercises self discipline they demonstrate to others that they are choosing to make the necessary sacrifices required to succeed. Be a leader that leads by example.
