Independent leaders have their own thoughts. They do not let other people's thinking become theirs. They have the courage to speak the truth even if it means being different from the rest, no amount of attacks make them vulnerable to agree with them. They remain true to themselves and garner respect, admiration, and credibility. They do not run after success but create an environment where success is bound to come by. To be an independent leader:
Be your own ideal.
Decide your own goals.
Make your own plan.
Take decisions and take responsibility for your decisions.
Choose, guide, lead, motivate and train your team.
Keep plan B ready.
Bounce back after any failure or setback.
Keep performing. Do not have any expectations from anyone or even from yourself.
Happy Independence Day
