How often do we play the comparison game?
How often do we compare ourselves to others and their circumstances?
How often do we judge ourselves, comparing to what someone else has?
How many times have we thought, If only we were as lucky as they are, then all would be fine?
How easily we forget that each one of us has our own life lessons to learn; our own journey to take, and our own gifts to explore. We cannot begin to be content or successful until we release the urge to always compare ourselves to others.
We have been granted potential for leadership and success on many levels.
Are we using our potential?
Are we discovering the treasures of our deepest desires and biggest dreams?
Are we looking into our heart and finding out what our truest desires are?
Why not discover and explore YOUR gifts and be grateful for who YOU are and what YOU can become. Look at your life as a gift – as a precious present that is just uniquely yours. Leaders engage with their hearts, and invest with their inner values, desires and drives.
Are you being a leader from within?
Lead from Within: How can you be grateful for what you have and show appreciation for your gifts? You are born for a reason. Find out what that is and be the best you can be.
