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)

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)
