“It’s impossible,” said pride.
“It’s risky,” said experience.
“It’s pointless,” said reason.
“Give it a try,” said the heart.
Coaching Tip of the Week:
When I first started my business, almost 15 years ago now, I focused very heavily on “being professional.” While I always honored my values, sometimes I would make decisions more from a place of “What would a more experienced (or in my view, ‘real’) business owner do?” instead of asking myself “What do I want to do? What feels right?”
Now, it’s pretty much the opposite. I’ve learned to distinguish between the voice of fear, doubt, and uncertainty and my voice of confidence, authenticity, and trust.
What a relief!
This week, listen to your heart.
Leadership doesn’t mean acting out a prescribed set of behaviors or following a certain recipe for success. Think about the leaders, professionals, and all-around awesome humans you admire the most: Are they doing what everyone else does? Or do they seem to follow their hearts, trust their intuition, and act from a place of authentic service?
You can do the same. And your leadership, business, and life will likely grow exponentially as a result!
