Since the dawn of time, most great leaders have had one thing in common. It’s not often highlighted in the annals of leadership. It’s rarely written about or listed as a strategic advantage. It might surprise you, but it’s responsible for freeing nations, leading movements, and inspiring generations.

Episode 071: The Shocking Similarity Among Great Leaders

The shocking similarity among great leaders is that they were angry. More importantly, they used their anger.

Great leaders are angry.

Angry at the status quo.

Angry at average.

Angry at injustice and oppression.

Angry at the missing pieces.

Angry at second place.

Angry at anything that holds them back or others back.

Angry at obstacles.

Anger has such a negative connotation, but when we look at the greatest leaders throughout history, they used their anger to free people from oppression, start world-changing movements, think of new solutions to old problems, and ultimately to leave a powerful legacy.

Today, I’ll show you why anger is an ally and how to use it to your advantage.
