Only one person can ensure that we end up somewhere on purpose. And that person isn’t in the House of Representatives or the White House. They’re in our house. In fact, we look at that person in the mirror every morning. The reality is that we face our greatest leadership challenge every morning when face ourselves.
Our nation will never be greater than the American in the Mirror, and great leaders last because they lead themselves first. We can avoid undermining our own success and start leading ourselves well if we’re willing to take a hard look at ourselves first.

- I will not lie to myself even when the truth makes me feel bad about myself.
- I will prioritize what I value most over what I want now.
- I will not attempt to lead myself by myself.
