Often rituals and spells only have the affect you will them to or something similar to the desire. If any of the components for your ritual had chemicals or otherwise human-effecting substances in them then to find out what you did to yourself aside from what you wanted to do to yourself you should look into what those items do.
To answer what I thought the question was in the topic of this thread, it would be the same as what makes a Priest. Both must have leadership traits and qualities. A love for all their followers, knowledge to share, loyalty, activity within the group, authority, Etc.
