As a leader, claim responsibility before you blame others. If you work on yourself first to make yourself a better person, a better leader, a better business owner, it’s much easier to develop those characteristics in others.
Ask yourself every time you receive any piece of information, “Am I really, truly open to learning and absorbing things around me?” Are you ready to make a commitment to becoming more aware? That’s you being true, being real, and down to business. And that’s your first step to becoming a success.
