In this new series, John Maxwell discusses the price tag of leadership. If you’re familiar with John at all, you’ve likely heard him say, “Everything worthwhile is uphill––all the way.” That means there is always a cost associated with leadership and success. The hard truth is that the cost is self-discipline.
As John says, the hardest person to lead is yourself. But self-discipline makes all the difference. In part one of this series, John walks through the first three of five truths about self-discipline so you can see what makes it the biggest gamechanger in your own leadership.
After John’s lesson, Mark Cole (CEO of The John Maxwell Enterprise) and Richard Chancy consider the role that discipline plays when leaders face criticism. Then they share how self-discipline determines whether your habits serve you or whether you serve your habits.
Our BONUS resource for this series is The Price Tag of Leadership Worksheet, which includes fill-in-the-blank notes from John’s teaching. You can download the worksheet by clicking “Download the Bonus Resource” below.

I did not find value in Mark Cole statements at first and I thought who is this person on Johns talks and what value does he bring . He and John are different ,his points are long in thought and take time develop. Where as John thoughts are quick and powerful. Mark Cole lessons in the Leader-shift Online Course are more powerful then Johns. John knows how and who to sound himself with and this why he is such a powerful teacher.
Challenged to work on self leadership first daily. It’s an ongoing uphill climb indeed.

Great work guys as always. Listened to this one while working out on my indoor cycling trainer. So amazing it was on discipline and self leadership as it’s winter in Australia but this was so worthwhile. Brain and Body workout!
