No-excuse Leadership Lessons From A Marines Captain – Forbes

Angie Morgan, Marines Captain and co-founder, Lead Star

I imagine theres a lot of fear and nervousness when entering the military for the first time, just as there is when you get a new job or position. How can fear stand in the way of success and how can you quell it in order to lead? As you go through life, you get more comfortable with yourself and more reflective. I can easily recall that one of the biggest fears I had early on was the fear of failure. Up to that point in my life, everything had come pretty easily to me. I had good grades without studying too hard and did well at sports. In the Marines, I had to quickly learn a skill set that I wasnt socialized learning and it was really challenging. When I started training, I was very overwhelmed and, on any given day, I felt like I was behind.
