You must genuinely want the experience and the responsibility of leadership.
Make a decision that you are going to pay the price and practice all the tenets of leadership.
All leaders have great determination in the formative parts of their careers, both to become leaders and to stay leaders.
Self-discipline is key. Your ability to gain self-mastery and self-control will be the critical determinant of how high you rise to the top levels of leadership.
Learn from leaders that you admire; think about how you can incorporate their behaviours into your behaviours.
Read books on leadership, take courses on leadership, and learn what effective leadership is. Always think about how you can apply what you are studying.
Practice, practice, practice
Leadership can be learned. Leadership must be learned. Leadership is the greatest and most pressing need of our civilisation. Today as never before, you are needed in the ranks of leadership.
