To Lead Ourselves

Self leadership means to be empowered through deliberate living. It entails carefully choosing thoughts, words, and actions that support our holistic goals, dreams and desires, no matter the circumstances. It is the act of keeping our internal compass clear and focused by not getting caught up in the alluring ballyhoos of our external world. The result is the sweet scent of our best intentions coming to fruition.💜 (Photo by Seth Macey)

Reminder: Finding Answers

As self leaders we accept that perceived challenges exist in the physical world and that solutions are born from the non-physical. We understand that although answers to our problems are always available to us, there is mastery in finding them. Tuning into messages that are hidden behind our thoughts, emotions, and life experiences gives us insight. This practice of internal housekeeping helps replace divisiveness with unity, the essential ingredient in the receipt of answers. It’s necessary because as humans we tend to see the world from what is behind our eyes rather than from what is in front of them. (Photo by: Daiga Ellaby)

Reminder: Authenticity

Justifying our personal choices and actions leads us astray. This form of defense is an act of self sabotage rather than self leadership. What’s worse, choosing to mimic the wishes of others over our own limits not just ourselves, but all of humanity. Fresh, new ideas are born from self leaders who replace the need for approval with authenticity. 💜 (photo by Cody Davis)

Reminder: Finding the Flow

When some aspect of life doesn’t flow in our favour self leaders take responsibility rather than finding someone or something to blame. Instead of playing a victim, empowered self leaders find out what is blocking their roll. We discover what we are personally holding onto so that the magical journey of letting go can begin. Why is it magic? Because as soon as we let go, we let in. And so it flows. 💜 (photo by Chris Gill)

Self Leadership Reminder

Self leaders start their day with intent. That’s the easy part. The key is choosing the right intention. Ego-driven intent makes for a tough slog with a competitive you versus me nature. Intent based on well being is holistic, meaning there are no thems. There is only us. It is not for me, it is for everyone. Timely delivery of these bad boys is inspired, smooth, and serendipitous. 💜 (photo by Thomas Smith)

Self Leadership Reminder

Being perpetually busy is NOT intelligent” writes Robert Holden in his book, Authentic Success. Self leaders know that success requires reoccurring down time for clarity of vision. We know that chilling out helps us to peacefully tune into our inner guidance system.♥ (Photo by Kevin Grieve)
