I am not a born leader. I am lazy. I procrastinate. I get frustrated with people. I have self-esteem issues. I lack confidence in social situations. I lose patience with my children. I enjoy praise and recognition. I have trouble making decisions. Relinquishing control gives me heartburn. I make excuses for my bad behavior. Being candid gives me anxiety (hence the sweaty palms as I type this).
In other words, I am human; flawed, imperfect, transient in nature. But that also means that I am both adaptable and self-aware. I can look in the mirror and see my flaws, and I can take positive action towards improving.
