System: Fire: Personal Leadership

Why is personal leadership important?
The world can be a tough place. Sometimes it feels like we're losing control and the freedom to make our own decisions. This is a counterproductive, paralyzing way of thinking. It's also wrong. Our one true freedom is the freedom to choose our attitude and actions - even our moods - regardless of the situation. Whatever happens, we still have the power to rise to the occasion and live actively instead of passively. That's where heroism comes from.

What role does personal leadership play?
Using Personal Leadership, you set the direction. You decide what's most important to you. You commit to using self-discipline to make yourself better "a little bit at a time." Every day, you have the choice - whether to create yet another small victory, or to vegetate.
