Whether we choose to believe it or not, we are all leaders in some shape or form.
In our everyday lives there are those who are watching us and in many cases unbeknownst to us are emulating what we say and what we do.
I know when I think about this personally many times it sparks a bit of anxiety. My kids are watching everything I do and say. Am I being the example I truly desire to be for them?
I know I’m not alone with these thoughts as many others have shared with me that they too have the same concerns.
So the question remains how do we exude leadership on a daily basis?
The definition of leadership is the ability to lead. Therefore in order to become the best leader, we can we must be prepared to be an example every day.
Of course this doesn’t mean hitting a grand slam every time but what it does mean is being strong enough to look at our actions and in inactions with a fine tooth comb and ask ourselves the following question. “are my actions ones I am proud to share with my loved ones and all of those around me I am influencing?”
Many times the answer to this question will be a big fat NO. This my friends is the entire point. Identifying these instances and accepting them as truth is a gift very few are willing to accept.
Only by accepting these observations and realizations as truth are we able to create an action plan to catapult us into the next stratosphere.
Leadership in my eyes is not about perfection but the willingness to assess our own actions and make the changes we deemed necessary to maximize our potential equivalent to our desires.
Have an outstanding inspired rest of your day!
