You will never find them engaged in putting others down and bringing their morale down. In fact, they motivate others, their words are so concise and beautiful that they connect to the head and hearts of people.

2. Dare to stand alone- They do not seek the approvals of others. They believe in their own abilities and have a can-do attitude. They are never afraid to stand alone for what they believe in. It is not because they are always right. It is because they are not afraid of being wrong. 

3. A high degree of self-awareness- They have proper knowledge of their inner self. The exactly know what their strengths and weaknesses are. That is why they have a strong belief in their abilities.
