JUSTIFYING YOUR WRONGFUL CHOICES IS TO HEDGE YOURSELF IN WITH FOOLHARDY LIES.
Out of several options, a true leader makes a courageous choice that is strongly savoured by ethical and moral considerations. They ask the question that most people are afraid to ask, in order to prevent the loss of something important. His courage and adherence to a set of principles inspires others, sets clear boundaries and puts ambiguity to flight.
A morally courageous leader holds together ethically motivated teams and a whole organization.
Having mental toughness in, through a determination to carry on against the odds and accomplish set goals, defines a leader.
To strike a healthy balance between what you like to do and what you need to do to get ahead, the necessary sacrifices and commitments is self-discipline.
If you take up with your emotions rather than with your inner strength and logic, success may elude you.
Your self-discipline stands you out, as a leader, and is often imitated by your people.
Justifying your wrongful choices is to hedge yourself in with foolhardy lies.
Undisciplined people find it difficult to give up being slaves to moods, appetites, and passions.
To operate from a strong position of leadership is to deny impeding easy gratifications, and to freely choose thoughts and actions that lead to improvement.
If you get off to demonstrating self-discipline, you set a good example for your people.
