From how to be successful in life, business, personally, professionally, this list is enormous. I have become so caught up on how to figure out who is right or wrong for that I just had to find out what the answer was. Hearing about success and how to be successful in “15 minutes” has led me to look at what success truly is, and found there are many different routes to get there.  Just google the dreaded question of “how to be successful” or “Tips on how to be successful”, and you will find hundreds of different articles or paths, as well as, many common threads.

Born Leader Poor Manager

The world and ongoing discussion of leadership and management is still very alive today.

Let me start by saying that I do not think leaders are born with the magical trait that, when they grow up they will become heroic leaders so many will want to emulate and follow, but rather the opposite.
When do you become leaders?
