Remember the 3 “S” in Leadership

If you ever want to learn about Leadership, the Military is full of knowledge and wisdom!

I’ve recently had to take my twin boys to the Marines recruiting office (I definitely wasn’t prepared for that) as they are getting ready for when they graduate high school to join the Marines. One of the steps to prepare them is, the recruiter sits them down and place 11 tags in front of them. Each tag had written what they wanted to become. They had to place the tags that were important to them from highest to lowest of importance. Of course, the first tag placed on top was “LEADERSHIP & MANAGEMENT SKILLS”. The recruiter was not surprised.

The second tag is the purpose of this blog post. The 3 “S” in Leadership:

  • Self-Reliance
  • Self-Direction
  • Self-Discipline

Believe in yourself and know that there is so much Greatness within you. Know who you are and where you are going. Overcome your weaknesses by taking control of your strengths.

Here’s to Greatness!
