Inspiration and lessons for your leadership journey!
“Keep in mind that the essence of being a human being is to be able to create something.”
Creating something is in and of itself rewarding. Whether you’re creating a meal, a clean house, a customer’s experience, a powerful lesson plan, a high-performing team, or an amazing relationship, we humans love creating. And when we collaborate together, we create some of the most amazing things!
But what about your state of being? Our state of being drives our choices and actions; it affects our physiology; and, it creates our habits – all for better or worse. Cumulatively, over time, this is who we become – it is who we are.
Think about where you are right now in your life – your health, the education you have, the job you hold, where you live, the state of your relationships, your religion and/or spirituality – all are in some way due to the thoughts, beliefs, emotions, and decisions you had or were given to you at some point in the past. Your state of being also defines who you are as a leader and as a person.
Most of the time we simply walk around in ‘default’ mode, responding with old programming, thinking patterns, and emotions that may or may not be serving us and/or others in the best way.
In A Travel Guide to Leadership I share with you some powerful ways that will help you create the state of being you desire. Instead of asking yourself, “What do I do?” Start by asking yourself:
How do I 'be'?
While whatever it is you create in your different roles at work, home, and elsewhere is important, who you are – your state of being – determines the quality of your creations. So, create something else, first.
If you like this week's blog, I encourage you to share it with your family, friends, and colleagues and join me on my journey to empower and inspire millions of people around the globe.
Together we can spread words of Encouragement, Inspiration, Empowerment, and Loving Leadership... and wouldn't you agree our world could use a little more "Positivity" these days?
Together we can make a difference...
