own your actions
We all have to cultivate an attitude of taking full responsibility for our actions and our life situation. We must cultivate a proactive mindset; constantly pivoting ourselves to face our biggest fears head on, doing now what must be done, putting our egos in check and embracing with humility and full ownership of our lives.
As Jocko Willink, former US Navy Seal and author of extreme ownership puts it: "For leaders, the humility to admit and own mistakes and develop a plan to overcome them is essential to success. The best leaders are not driven by ego or personal agendas. They are simply focused on the mission and how best to accomplish it."
