This truly is a turning point in your personal development journey. Though acknowledging this responsibility can be scary, it's also very empowering. Anything we desire is always only one decision away. If we can come to terms with this immense amount of power, then we can harness and leverage it in our favor.
It helps to keep in mind that stepping into this role involves accountability for the bad, the setbacks, and the disappointments just as much as the good.
