Moving Toward

In the face of uncertainty, self leadership can be an energetic mind game. The mind, left unchecked, reminds us of what we don’t want. It aims to prevent the unwanted from occurring and in so doing, brings it to fruition; There is no such thing as running away from what we don’t want. We either run toward it by allowing it to hijack our thoughts and therefore our focus. Or, we move toward what we do want by ensuring that is our focus. 💚Pic: (Paul Skorupskas) #selfleadership, #runningawayisrunningtoward, #PaulSkorupskas

The Current

A common query on the self leadership path is, “Can I stay in that ‘love place’ all the time?” to which the answer is, “no”. We oscillate to and from that sweet spot because we are continually being called to evolve and expand along with the Universe of which we are a part. This growth can be uncomfortable or not depending on our choice to either resist its current, or to flow with it.❤ (photo: #MartinSanchez) #selfleadership

Self Leadership Dialogue

Get your self-leadership-groove on by setting your internal dialogue to the tune of these affirming truths: “I am totally independent of the good or bad opinions of others. I am beneath no one. I’m fearless in the face of any and all challenges.” ~ D. Chopra 💜 (Photo: Sergey Pesterev) #selfleadership

Reminder: Stay the Course

In the face of chaos and confrontation practicing self leaders ask, “Is this for real?” because we know that our ego has a habit of obscuring our soul’s clarity. Even the slightest undercurrent of negativity signifies that fear is clouding our vision. Unpleasant thoughts and feelings are natural human-made distractions. Making the choice to yield solutions by accepting what is while moving in the direction of intent, is self leadership.💜 (Photo: Kalen Emsley) #selfleadership

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

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)
