In order to gain credibility, you have to start putting yourself into new spaces. Uncomfortability is where growth is fostered. Follow those that inspire you, study their story, their tactics and build from there. In order to be a good leader, you must first have to be a good follower. Overtime, you establish trust which is crucial to effectively lead others.
Know yourself. Self-awarness if very important when building your empire. Yes through your journey you learn new things about yourself. But if you dont know who you are and what you stand for, you will come off as fraudulent, this making it almost impossible to become a leader.

Be yourself; Everyone else is already taken.— Oscar Wilde.
Stand for something bigger than yourself. You must critically analyze the root of your efforts. Whats your purpose? What impact are you trying to accomplish? Why should people care? This is the difference between short and long term success.
Everything you do should suppliment the legacy you are attempting to build for yourself.
