As a new leader, make sure your mindchatter is constructive. Be perceptive, motivational, realistic and positive. Listen to the right mindchatter.

By doing so, they are then able to rise to the occasion when confronted by larger crises on the world stage.

This way you can benefit from compound interest, and, as the years go by, you can sit back, relax and accumulate millions.

 

Total integrity is the first lever of primary greatness. People who have lost integrity live and work in a world of seeming to be something they are not. Living a false life is a heavy burden on your conscience and on the people who rely on you
