What Kind Of Leader Are You?

You are a leader.  And it’s time to start owning it.

It’s time to take your stand.

I hear this a lot:

“I never considered myself a leader before”


Or this one:

“I am second guessing myself all the time”


And even more regularly:

“Am I enough?”

You want to create big things in the world, and often get stuck in inertia trying to perfect your decisions and actions. And, that prevents you from moving forward and making the progress you desire and yearn for so much — leaving you to question everything.

Then, when a secure and confident leader shows up, do you see yourself shrink in their presence or relate to them as being ‘full of themselves’? Or you hear yourself say “I could have told you that!”

Thoughts may even emerge like “Wow, she is amazing. I could never be as confident as she is.”

If you dig deep, you can feel the difference between real ‘I know, like and trust myself’ confidence, and false ‘I desperately hope you like me’ confidence.

A whole and empowered leader doesn’t desperately seek approval; they take a stand for their strengths, their purpose, and their mission.

Let me explain: if you allow this week to be a YES to what empowers you and moves you closer to your #1 goal, and a NO to what drains you and slows you down, you are on the right path to skyrocket your growth towards the results you want - with real, clear, connected confidence.

Those extraordinary results are closer than you think…
And the key lies within you.

Do you have a personal mission statement that drives you towards your goals every day?

For example:

I have a new program I can’t wait to share with you in the coming months. However, it’s not enough for me to just know that in order to create and deliver a world-class experience for you.

To remain clear, focused and powerful within myself and what I have my team working on, I have my goals written down. I have WHY this is important written down. I have WHO I serve written down, along with who I don’t serve. I understand clearly what powerful results I create for my clients and community, and guess what – it’s written down!  

And I read all of this several times per day.

When you are connected to your strengths, your purpose and your mission you will take intentional and inspired action that will have you well on your way to producing the results you want in no time.

As a leader and the CEO of your business (and your life), It’s your job to see your strengths and purpose and to honor them.

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do… And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”  – Marianne Williamson

TAKE A MOMENT RIGHT NOW AND COMPLETE THE FIRST 3 SENTENCES OF YOUR PERSONAL MISSION STATEMENT:

“I am a leader who…”

As you complete it, acknowledge your strengths, traits or ways of being that you bring to the world. These are the gifts that allow you to change lives and create transformative results in your business. Be unapologetically you. Capture who you are for and who you are not for.  Write down why you are driven to do what you do, so that you remember every day multiple times per day.  

Share some of your statements in the comments on the blog so we can witness you and be inspired by who you are! I look forward to reading them all personally, and getting to know you in your full brilliance.
