Success strategies are plans that guide your personal growth in achieving what you want. This includes forming habits that support your success or letting go of habits that hinder your success. Self-leadership is a crucial success technique discussed in this episode; having a developed sense of who you are, what you can do, and where you are going coupled with the ability to influence your communication. It is about setting your course, following it, and correcting it as you go. How are you taking the leadership role in your life and ensuring what you want happens?
