The Decision to Lead

by  Becky Robinson  |  Self Leadership

Leadership begins with a decision to make a difference.

It is a decision to act, a decision to do something.

Leaders are people who decide to live and act in a way that brings about positive results: in their organizations, families, and communities.

The first decision, each day, is the decision to make a difference through leading others.

Even people who hold a position of leadership must choose to step up and lead.

From the first decision, many others follow — leadership is established through a series of decisions. Leaders face many decisions, both large and (seemingly) small. Yet each one is another opportunity to confirm and under gird the first one.

And that first decision is the one that matters most.

Will you choose to lead?
