Those who learn to overcome their fear of failure and let go often learn that organizations flourrish in their absence. This is hard to swallow for some people. It means they're not as important as they think they were. For future leaders this is a revelation and a godsend!
It's somewhat ironic that the less you can care the better you'll do. The less you care about money the more you can save. How is this? By unleashing the shackles of micromanagement you are then able to leverage the talent of others. Do you think it makes more sense for you to go to law school, accounting school, and business school in order to effectively run a business or should you leverage the talent of others who are actually better at those things than you are? The latter of course. Don't go get a medical degree just because you caught a cold. CHALLENGE AN EXISTING DOCTOR TO CURE YOU!
1. What can you do better? Find a job that causes you to fail often and quickly. If you work in sales and hate cold calling, go work for a telemarketer on the weekends and/or nights.
2. Become oblivious to the outcome. Stop caring and move on. What you need to be obsessed about is the learning and not the result.
3. BE PASSIONATE! Maybe this should be number 1 because without passion there is no leadership. Nobody follows unpassionate people into battle.
4. Communication. Communicate your passionate vision to others. You might be passionate but you have to find a way to relay that to others.
