Strength and growth come only through continuous effort and struggle – Napoleon Hill
The growth of a leader is never easy. I’m not sure it’s meant to be although many look for exemptions. The efforts and struggles you are going through right now are not in vain. They are not calisthenics of leadership that do not produce rewards for the effort. When you realize that leadership will require continuous effort and struggle then you are well on your way to growth and maturity as a leader. The pay-off occurs when you realize that there is a greater purpose behind the struggle. So regardless of what you are going through today let me encourage you to not give up. Don’t give in to discouragement. You will reap positive results when you stay the course.
