Vision, optimism, pursuit of excellence, the quest to be the best – both professionally and personally – and the empowerment of others are the foundations of successful leaders. They can see ahead of others, and they see bright futures of what their businesses will look like when they reach their destinies. They begin with the end in mind.

They want to be the best and they want to experience the best. And they have the ability to empower their followers by listening and then opening the doors for others to lead themselves.

That is, doing the most important things first and doing them well. However, when leaders fail in an activity, they admit it and move on. They don’t make excuses. They will do the right thing next time, no excuses, just get the results.
