But wait! This is not going to come easy. You may find yourself in a challenging circumstance that does not necessarily make your mission easy. There will be those around you who focus on the negative and even try to make you feel bad about yourself and life in general. In fact, this is very common and is the reason why most people find it hard to see the good in anything around them, and are held back from growing pass current circumstances and obstacles.
However, a key discipline that every great leader acquires on their success journey is being able to deliberately rise above forces seeking to hold them and others back – be it physically, mentally or even spiritually; and to remove themselves from the presence of negative pessimistic opinions and voices.
You just have to know who you are and where you are heading. Always remember that great leaders are stubborn believers in themselves. Especially in today's world, where nothing is handed to anyone, not even their self-esteem.
