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

On the Rise

As A New Earth emerges, Eckhart Tolle comes to mind. What did he share with us before our health, families, freedoms and unification were highlighted in this way? He wrote: “The foundation of a new earth is a new heaven – the awakened consciousness.” Adding that, “Nothing is going to make us free because only the present moment can make us free. That realization is the awakening.”💕  (Pic: Elena Mozhvilo) #selfleadership, #EckhartTolle, #ANewEarth, #ElenaMozhvilo

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

Happy New Year!

If we’re still and listen deeply to our hearts and the hearts around us we’ll shift from simply surviving to thriving in this world. As we head into a new year let’s be a master of our life experience rather than its slave. Let’s listen and go inward in an outward looking world. Let’s make the unconscious, conscious and stop it from directing our lives. Let’s dare to self lead!💜 (photo: Trust “Tru” Katsande) #happynewyear2020  #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: Equilibrium

Occasionally, as we bask in the glory of a life rooted in self leadership, the ever-constant winds of change blast us with unprecedented intensity. Our roots become unearthed reminding us that resilience, rather than achievement, is the name of the game. We diligently accept what is while unmasking the inherent treasure of the tempest empowering us to behold, once again, a sunrise for a sunset.💜 (Photo: Cristina Gottardi) #selfleadership

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) #selfleadership

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) #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)
