“Great achievement is usually born of great sacrifice, and is never the result of selfishness.” -Napoleon Hill, author of Think and Grow Rich Reading through this write-up on leadership, a quality that I need to mention about is that of sacrifice. I still remember what my boss at work told me about leadership, “Leadership is all about sacrifice and as you move up the ladder, you need to sacrifice even more. It becomes less about you and more about others.” Take the example of Mahatma Gandhi cited in the blog. He knew that sacrifice was the core of his leadership. The sacrificial nature of his actions is what I believe led many people to respect him as a leader. Gandhi believed in the teachings of Jesus Christ and hence the core of Gandhi’s principles were that of sacrifice. Without sacrifice one cannot transition to the position of leading others, placing others before one’s self. Look back to the achievements of great leaders across the world. Every one of their success is the result of sacrifice. Martin Luther King sacrificed his life for the goal of equality, Gandhi sacrificed his life for the freedom of a nation, and Nelson Mandela sacrificed for the revolution of his country. These are a few of many leaders who succeed in their life all because they believed in one word – sacrifice. Are you ready to start on the road to success? If yes, then let’s start with a little sacrifice.
