Leadership and Success are not only a language but also a choice! The two BIG things blocking our choice to evolve professionally, personally, and relationally tend to be our feelings and our fears. Feelings are starting points; not ending points. Let’s be real, who gets to be “Happy” all the time? That’s not realistic and assumes there’s no value in other feelings. Feeling angry lets you know you have boundaries, feeling jealous lets you know you have desires, feeling sad lets you know you’ve loved and cared for, feeling guilty lets you know you have morals, and feeling shame provides an opportunity to practice personal forgiveness. I could go on, but you get the point. Feelings tell YOU about YOU, but it’s your job to extract the lesson and let your feelings be a starting point, not an ending point!
Fears are useful and have helped to keep humans safe since the beginning of time. However, if you’re too fearful to leave your cave… you won’t ever have to worry about the Saber-Toothed eating you… you’ll simply starve to death in your cave! How many people have metaphorically died before their bodies died because they were too fearful to live the life they desired and take chances to go for that promotion, start that business, go for that relationship, make beneficial life changes?
Feelings and Fears by themselves don’t fix anything; plans do! After you’ve had your feelings and explored your fears… what’s your plan? What do you need to acknowledge about yourself, accept and understand about yourself, decide, and DO on a consistent basis to begin living the life of your dreams professionally, personally, relationally, spiritually, financially, and mentally? This is Leadership & Work/Life Harmony at its core… and it matters! Enjoy your Evolution and may your life be as awesome as you are!
