“Successful people maintain a positive focus in life no matter what is going on around them.

“The more you can contain your ego, the more realistic you are about your problems. You learn how to listen, and admit that you don’t know all the answers. You exhibit the attitude that you can learn from anyone at any time. Your pride doesn’t get in the way of gathering the information you need to achieve the best results. It doesn’t keep you from sharing the credit that needs to be shared. Humility allows you to acknowledge your mistakes".

Confident leaders have a strong sense of self and rarely express self-doubt. They understand who they are and are comfortable in their own skin. Charismatic leaders are also optimists. They see the glass as half full instead of half empty and are always looking on the bright side.
