1. SELF CONTROL The ability to control one's emotions and actions under adverse conditions. If you cannot control yourself, you cannot lead others. 2. SELF DISCIPLINE The ability to continue to strive toward one's goal without dependency on outside control, punishment or reward. If you cannot motivate yourself, you cannot motivate others. 3. SELF ESTEEM The internal feeling of pride and confidence in one's self that, regardless of the difficulty, one has self control, the discipline and the knowledge needed for leadership. 4. LEADERSHIP Leadership is not obtained by faulting others, but by the realization that I AM WHAT I MAKE MYSELF AND ONLY WHEN I MAKE MYSELF SOMEONE WHOM OTHERS RESPECT, WILL I ACQUIRE LEADERSHIP.
