“The one thing you can do to have the greatest impact on your leadership potential is to be intentional every day about becoming equipped to lead.” – John C. Maxwell
Are you a leader? Do you want to be?
Maybe a better question is, do you have people who look up to or follow you?
Guess what?!?! That means you ARE a leader!!! Congrats!!
The funny thing about leadership, usually others see it in us before we can see it in ourselves. I’m a GREAT follower! However, if the situation calls for it I’m able to step in and lead as needed, but I never really considered myself a leader.
One of the things I’m learning about myself through this awesome personal growth program called owning my own home based business, is that I can be a great leader…I just need to sharpen my tools. I’ve heard that network marketing is personal growth with a paycheck, and it’s so true! Who doesn’t want to get paid to learn, right?!?! My friend Charlotte says that God uses the draw of working toward promotions to bring us closer to Him and grow us into the people He always knew we could be. He knows us so well, doesn’t He?
John’s book here has been very helpful, he has so many out there to choose from! I loved how he touched on a ton of different leadership topics in the section on questions leaders ask of him. He also talks about asking yourself questions, that is really where we all need to start.
Isn’t it funny how all of these books I’ve posted about so far have required a bit of self reflection? Coincidence? I think not. Self reflection is something I didn’t really make time for previously. I’m finding so much value in it though! If we can’t lead ourselves to success, we can’t lead anyone else there either. It must begin with me.
What areas of self leadership are you working on? What do you find most challenging as a leader? Most rewarding? I’d love to know! Share in the comments below!
