You are a leader, whether you are aware of it or not —at home, in the workplace, relationships, in your careers or business. The truth is, if you are craving growth and want to strengthen your relationships and career, you must be leading by example from the front, walking your talk.
This topic is something that comes up so often in coaching sessions. It’s like people have that burning desire to evoke change and lead others, but tell themselves “I don’t feel confident being seen on social media or I don’t like holding meetings”, another common block is “If I have to tell people what to do, they won’t like me”. The fear of judgment or failure paralyses even the best intentions. But here’s the thing, you don’t have to have qualifications or the ‘it’ factor to lead others.
It takes just enough confidence and belief in yourself to step into your power, DESPITE feeling the fear and lead by example.
One challenge we are facing at the moment is children adapting to going back to school. “I want my kids to want to go back to school but I’m nervous about the coronavirus”. “I want my kids to be happy but I’m stressed about what might happen.” Leading from the front is one of the aspects of awakening your warrior. It’s about empowering others to be brave, you can’t poke, prod or tell people what to do from behind. You can’t say ‘it’s safe to try that’ if you aren’t willing to do it yourself. Tap into your inner strength and despite the fear, despite the unknown, despite the doubt, the risks, do what you would wish others to do. BE THE CHANGE YOU WISH TO SEE IN THE WORLD. Start small, lead by example in your home, the workplace, your friends and it will be like a pebble in the pond. Your leadership will light the way for others.
This is why I do the live videos online, this is why I send out blogs and do vulnerable posts, this is why I listen to audiobooks whilst in the shower and this is why as soon as I get five minutes between looking after my twin babies and running my business, I’m doing something that’s going to support me in continuing to lead from the front. As a coach, as someone who is creating a movement, I need to be in the trenches, I need to be doing these things to continue to grow and show other people it’s safe to keep moving forward. Is there an area in your life where you need to awaken your warrior and lead from the front? If so, this is your calling. If what you’re reading now resonates with you, take it as a sign—a sign for you to do the things that you need to do, whatever it takes.
