How to Tap into Your Greatest Leadership Potential
Everything that happens to you is a reflection of what you believe about yourself. We cannot outperform our level of self-esteem. We cannot draw to ourselves more than we think we are worth. (Iyanla Vanzant)
If you are an individual seeking to find a meaning and a higher purpose in your life holistically, including how you live, how you eat, how you work, how you sleep, how you spend your time, with whom you spend your time – alone the fact that you consider these as an integral part of your success and well-being in life rather than rushing through the days trying to fit into an environment and society that is constantly trying to change you, and turn you into something that makes you question whether you are simply fulfilling the requirements set by others, may be a sign of the fact that you in fact are developing authentic and truthful leadership skills in yourself.
To be yourself, and to do what you truly love, in a world that is constantly trying to change you into something else, is the greatest accomplishment, and the greatest gift you can give yourself & the world around you (Modified quote, originally by Ralph Waldo Emerson)
Tapping into our true leadership potentials and developing into human beings with higher consciousness and spirituality does not always require going through difficulties, although all spiritual leadership and the willingness to seek a higher purpose in life does always come with maturity, regardless of physical age. We all have deep spiritual wisdom within us, ready and available to be unlocked when the time and circumstances are right. I remember a few years back reading “The Art of Choosing”, written by Sheena Iyengar, an excellent read where a blind, highly intellectual woman taps into the world of the art of making choices in life. Both her best-selling book, her story, her determination to succeed despite of her inability to see helped me realize how important it is for us to believe in ourselves despite of the fact that none of us is perfect. If a blind woman can write and publish a best-selling book, it is a miracle and expresses the true potential available within each one of us.
We can all tap into our leadership potentials and becoming the best possible versions of ourselves despite of our deficiencies and weaknesses by taking important and necessary steps in our self-actualization and in developing our consciousness through authentic, game-changing steps.
Tap into your full leadership potential by always valuing your individuality and by respecting yourself.
Authentic, genuine leaders always come with a self-worth, allowing for them to value other individuals as well. Despite of possible external “faults”, differences, or in ways of thinking. Every single individual and human being does have a genius within them, the potential to grow into a leader with humanity and character, when developed and guided in a righteous manner. Only leaders who value and respect themselves are capable of behaving in a similar manner in communication with other people.
Tap into your full leadership potential by becoming not only a role model, but also a light worker in your environment, and in society.
Spiritual leadership, being a role model and a light worker requires for an individual to be capable of expressing Universal love, having faith in eternity, believing in Universal Spiritual Laws, Karma, Spiritual enlightenment, spiritual awakening, being of service to others and to humanity in general, leading through positive example, philanthropy, charity, self-sacrifice, selflessness, having a destiny with a deep soul-purpose and a mission in life, being generous, having a higher perspective upon life and things in general, romance, inner-strength, responsibility in all actions, intuition, strength of character, creativity, sensitivity, loyalty (towards oneself first!), discretion, brilliance, problem-solving, inner-wisdom, freedom, idealism, altruism and benevolence, empathy, compassion, developing artistic skills and becoming an artistic genius, seeing things from a wider perspective, a love for communication and influence, being capable of forgiving, mysticism, optimism and Divine Wisdom, among a number of other attributes and qualities.
If you do recognize some, or many of these traits and emotions in your personal behavior, feelings, and life, you are most probably on the path of tapping into becoming the leader that you ought to be, and a leader marked by inner wisdom and greatness.
Tap into your full leadership potential by listening to both your intuition, but also your logic, rational mind.
All great leaders know how to lead from within, from their hearts, but also by the capability of staying grounded and learning how to combine their feelings with their rational minds. To tap into your greatest leadership potential and to develop these qualities within yourself, you must let go of the need to control everything, and rather focus upon the fact that true happiness comes from the ability to realize that you do not need to possess much, but rather from being attached to little. Only leaders who know that everything is Universal, yet that nothing belongs to them, are capable of manifesting everything they ever wish for in their lives, creating abundance for themselves but also for people surrounding them.
