How do you want to do this through your leadership in 2013?
The resplendent allure of this question is that the world, for you, for each of us, is a clean slate as we embark upon a New Year. We can wash away the parts of us we want to transform and purify those we want to use virtuously as a leader.
What’s most important is the acknowledgement that as a leader we have the power to truly change the world – for good or for bad – by how we live our lives and fulfill our leadership roles. And here’s the key: how we live our lives and fulfill our leadership roles starts with how we see and love ourselves. It all starts inside us as we connect to our True Selves and lead from within.
It starts with loving ourselves first.
Think about those people and leaders in your life who are unhappy, struggling, intentionally or unintentionally hurting others. How many of them would see a transformation in their life simply by opening their hearts to love and fully accept themselves as they are? By feeling genuine gratitude for their life? By connecting to the purity of their soul they were born with and rediscovering the beauty within them? Not in an arrogant, selfish way but in a genuine way. I’m guessing every single one of them…
Keep these questions in mind when you look within yourself to define what kind of leader you want to be in 2013. Someone who has done the work to love and accept themself will bring a very different essence to their leadership role than someone who is struggling. Imagine the difference in passion, magnetism, charisma, service and loyalty! Imagine the difference in their ability to inspire, motivate, mentor and serve.
What kind of leader will you be in 2013? How will you impact and change the world? Envision yourself the leader you deeply wish to be, and then go make it so.
Wishing you a New Year full of great love, joy and dreams fulfilled!
