Lead By Example | Fundamental #21
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, “Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous?”
Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people will not feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone and as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give others permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
We are in Botswana, Africa, in partnership with and on behalf of Malandro Consulting Group, we just wrapped up a leadership offsite with an exceptional group of beautiful human beings.
After spending nearly 5 days, going through ups and downs, ins and outs on this journey together, the entire group of us affirmed the truest path to authentic leadership starts with oneself.
If you have a commitment to lead by example, begin with anywhere you are holding back your emotional commitment, your alignment, and most importantly your heart. Ask yourself, “Where am I playing small? Where am I not letting my own light shine?”
Take a look at your own judgments and limitations that get in the way of generously listening to the people you interact with the most every day.
Become aware of your impact. Take accountability for how you perceive. Be the example of what you want to see.
Wherever you have a complaint about your company, the people you work with, or even your clients, there is buried beneath the surface a hidden gem – an original commitment to something you really care about, waiting to be excavated.
If you have a burning passion to light a fire in the hearts of those around you, we partner with you to help you bring out the very best in yourself and in everyone you touch.
Let us know when you are ready to lead by example.
And shine on, you crazy diamond,
