8. Be more of an upstanding leader than a follower
A great person attracts great people in such a way where they become formidable leaders in their profession. The same rule applies between co-workers where one or several will exude leadership signs early on. Taking on more leadership roles gives credence to your name and reputation which will prove to be more effective for you. How do you know when someone considers you a leader? Well, they start relying on you for answers and duplicating your efforts!
