The life you live shows how well you lead yourself. How you deal with the hills and valleys of life and how you take care of yourself. Communicate with self through contemplation- listen. Forgive and accept yourself and be confident with the strengths you have been blessed with. Bring these thoughts to fruition through your actions. Ask your friends for feedback. Seek to learn and know that you do not know everything so be humble.

Most importantly, treasure your friends like your real sisters and brothers. They are your treasure so talk to them not behind them. And when you start to lead others, you hinge on the same belief.

Do not lead if you couldn’t lead yourself well yet.
