Can personal development accelerate your leadership ability? Once of the best illustrations of this comes from Darren Hardy the Publisher of Success Magazine:
“There’s an old Cherokee tale. A grandfather is talking to his grandson and says, “Grandson inside each of us are two wolfs. They are at war with each other and one wolf is a bad wolf. It’s angry, it’s fearful, it’s nasty, it’s lazy. And then there is a good wolf who is giving, and loving, and abundant, and disciplined”
We have to realize that we have the capacity for both. And for some of us one of these have been fed way too much compared to the other.
Which one have you been feeding?
Obviously we all want to aspire to the one but...
Which one have you honestly been supporting?
If you have not been on the right track, use this as an excuse to course correct just like a plane does when it’s not going in the right direction.
Use this as a new opportunity to recognize you have not been as focused and deliberate about feeding the side of you that is going to give you the strength, the energy, the freedom, the influence that you want.
When it comes to leadership one of the biggest realizations in my life working with hundreds of clients is that it is so much more than knowing the right communication/ influence information.
It’s by far more than that…
It’s about developing ourselves
It’s mastering ourselves, mastering our psychology, mastering the parts of ourselves where we do our absolute best work and pushing aside the parts of us that hold us back and do not lead to fulfillment or accomplishment.
Take time today to write out what kind of person would I have to become in order to accomplish my leadership goals/ ambitions? What qualities would you need to cultivate in order to breakthrough that next level?
Is that person someone who is determined? Passionate? Organized? Outrageous? Creative?
I don’t know what it is for you but what I do know is that if you start living into those qualities you will accelerate the results you have by several fold.
