Forward

Some of us, as leaders, go through a series of purpose-expressions, a series of careers, as we grow, learn and become more and more of who we are meant  to be.  Others find one avenue immediately after high school or college and stay with that one expression of their vision throughout much of their life. Whichever path you follow is yours, not right or wrong, just yours..

The one core truth we learn, however, is that whatever path we choose, there will be a continuous series of opportunities for growth or stagnation. For living our truth or being in self-betrayal. Choosing leadership, consciously or otherwise, requires that we be ready to grow in order to deal with all the challenges, opportunities, and expansions that happen as our vision takes on a life of its own. That choosing can support compassion, understanding, and a greater leadership skill as those around us go through their process as well.

As leaders, we are challenged at times to decide if we are ready or even want to grow to that next level, to lead at that level, to become even more of who we are.

If you are human, you will at times want to stop, to breath, to reconsider your choices. That is never a failing, or a weakness, rather it is an amazing gift you give yourself. When you have grown significantly, or when it is time to grow significantly,  stopping to catch up with yourself, to integrate all that is happening, is a smart and solid way of strengthening your foundation, your connection to your Spirit,  to your purpose, and to you.

Use these articles as a means to do that.

I was able to attend one of my favorite all-time networking meetings twice this week, even if virtually. It is such a delight with wildly outrageous personalities who nonetheless are bent on working in, or, supporting non-profit organizations.

In speaking with two prospective clients today, I was reminded once again that what we know is irrelevant. What we believe and what we practice is what has the greatest impact on our lives. One “knew” that she was the problem in not achieving her dreams. She has worked tirelessly yet at the same time has been treating her business…

Your Word

At a board meeting I attended this week, there was a statement made about the well-spoken word. It got me thinking, as a writer and a speaker, I am well-aware of the well-spoken word in delivering a message. It needs to be clear, concise, and yet powerful in ways nothing else is. Between friends it needs to be impeccable. Even…

I was reading a few things on Facebook this morning and one thought came to mind; how overwhelmingly busy we all can be when we are trying to “do it all.” “Be it all.” And/or “Know it all.” We can’t, we aren’t, and it is impossible… Acknowledge that when your presence, your personality, and/or your energy field, say’s “I AM”…

Have you noticed that when you get on an amazing roll of things working – you can still have that other side of you – that frightened or insecure part – show up and say “You’re not doing enough.” “They are going to think you’re not contributing your fair share.”  All types of messages or stories created in your own…
