5 Things That Will Shape Your Destiny

Have you ever wondered what you will be like in five years?  Will you have changed?  Will you be more loving?  A better leader?  A better parent?  What will you be like?

Who you will be five years from now is being shaped by five things:

1.  the people you are spending time with-who is coaching you, who you are coaching and the friends you hang out with.

2.  the books you read

3.  the choices you make-good and bad

4.  how you respond to failure, disappointment, loneliness, crisis, betrayal and other leadership challenges

5.  the habits you are developing and whether you are taking responsibility for your life, or playing the victim and blaming others.

What other factors do you think shape a leader’s future life?
