There are many traits that a great business leader possesses in his personality. In today’s episode I am discussing many of those traits with my guest, Alex Terranova. One of the prominent traits of a great leader is the habit of reading books. You must have heard a proverb “leader is a reader”, that’s 100% true. But most of the readers today make a mistake while reading; they keep reading books one after another but they don’t implement it. Remember that reading hundreds of books won’t lead you toward success, but, implementing even a single book 100% will definitely change your destiny.
Another thing that you need to grow yourself is to find MENTORS. Mentors are the ones who can help you to get where u always dream to be and without them your journey of success would be long and hard as well. So, find someone who could shape you and guide you toward your jackpot. Secondly, you not only need to seek mentors but you also need to be a mentor to someone. Help other people to grow because your success won’t mean anything if everyone around you will be living a miserable life. Helping other people selflessly with good intentions creates a positive impact on other person’s life and that is something you cannot measure on any scale. Remember that your good intentions pay you back in numerous ways because it is the law of nature that whatever you put into the world, you are going to get it.
Also, you as a leader need to balance out every dimension of your life; you need to build good relationships with people, with your clients, and with your loved ones because your relationships play vital role in leading you toward success. You also need to have a balanced approach to look at opposite views of people; listen to them, understand then and try to figure out a balanced way.
Last but not the least, if you want to be successful in life, you don’t need massive steps; start taking small steps to improve yourself and show up to the world as an energetic person and it will make you a charismatic successful leader of your organization.
