Even most great personalities, if not all have mentors. One who will guild them in what they do. Sometimes, your mentor(s) will make you go a long way, especially when he is in the same field with you. So you got to have one.
A leader is not and should not be satisfied with his level. Studying your work and comparing it to others more successful, will help you know that there is competition. In this regards, you will come to see yourself in great skills and tactics of gaining upper hand towards leadership.
‘No one is an island’, they say, is real. As such, you got take advice from people you work with, despite the fact you are the leader. As long as such opinions or advice as the case may be is genuine and makes good points, there is no need to disparage them.
A leader should not just go into it because others are leaders and crave to be one. In regards to this, you have to love the fact that you’re a leader. Because, those that love what they do gives more importance to it and by so doing, they make it at the top. Whereas you have no like for what you do, try and develop a likeness towards it, you’ll make it.
