Leadership is about helping and serving others. Empowering and bringing out the best in them. Positively influencing the lives of others is a key component of leadership. If you are not ready to do this, you are not ready to lead.
I am thankful for my struggle because without it I wouldn't have stumbled across my strength. I am thankful, struggling, and it's so hard, but thankful, and will continue to struggle till I get to where I'm going.
