Being a leader means leading oneself first and foremost. It takes a tough and stoic mindset.
Below is one of my favorite pieces of leadership advice from 1 of the world’s greatest leaders in Jocko Willink, retired Navy Seal and author of “Extreme Ownership”.
Jocko Willink “GOOD” (Official)
“When things are going bad, don’t get bummed out, don’t get startled, don’t get frustrated.
If you can say the word “Good”.
It means you’re still alive.
It means you’re still breathing.
And if you’re still breathing.
Well then hell, you got some fight left in you.
So get up.
And go out on the ATTACK.”
