If there is no momentum in our lives, we feel discouraged. If there is no forward motion, we just want to move on.
We must measure progress so we don’t give up and we do that by staying motivated.
We know progress requires change. We see progress calls for courage. And we understand that nothing wants to stay the same.
How we work, how we play, how we live and love – all must evolve over time into something different.
Because it wants to become bigger, better – defined and refined- strategic and satisfying.
However, measuring progress only happens when we have the courage. If we resist change – if we lack courage – all will end up staying in the status quo. As a person who leads from within, you must challenge what has always been, so you can change and grow.
I know you are seeking stability.
I know you are seeking to belong.
I know you are seeking to be heard.
I know you are afraid of being wrong.
I want you to look at your life, work and relationships, and have a keen awareness of the transformation that needs to be made in order to progress. Then I want you to take the action needed to move forward.
As a person who leads from within, you have to be someone who has the courage to do what most people only whisper about.
It is not your insights that set you apart from the crowd. It is your courage to do, to see, and to act.
Lead From Within: Simply knowing that you will show up and speak up will transform you from being a stagnant individual into being a person who has influence.
