Being a self-leader means taking responsibility for your own actions, your own power and the impact you create with your thoughts and actions.
Wow. That’s a lot of responsibility.
Begin self-leadership with an inventory
You have been given gifts and talents and tools to use in the leadership of your self. You increase your awareness of those gifts through contemplation. You become aware of the power and flexibility of the tools you have to work with. You become aware of the impact of your thoughts and actions. You become aware of the ripples you are sending out. Your vibration carries on even when you cannot be seen.
Your pebbles of participation create ripples into the world wave and will reach a shore you never dreamed of.
You cannot change the core of who you are but you can change how you share the gifts you have been given
Learn to share your gifts in many forms. Water is water but it can manifest as a rushing river, a waterfall, an ocean, or a reflecting pool. Water can become steam and merge with the air. Air can be a gentler breeze or a destructive tornado.
Your gifts are like that. Some are to be in more impactful forms than others. Look closely at the gifts you’ve been given, see how you’re using them, and identify what’s most impactful – and satisfying.
Use self-leadership to focus your own power
First, you have to recognize your own power. Then you have to cultivate it into a usable form. Then you get to focus it where you want to be in service.
Once you become aware of your impact and influence, then you can control it and direct it and offer it in a form that others can absorb. That control, that discipline is part of self-leadership.
Self-leadership means you have a vision and are flexible in sharing your gifts
Self-leadership means you know your own strengths, your own gifts and you’re inwardly aware enough to hear your own calling. You guide yourself in that direction. You use your overview to adjust quickly and sometimes dramatically to circumstances as they appear. You’re flexible and make strong decisions rapidly and with a comfortable conviction.
Stay flexible so you can change quickly and catch the incoming tide.
Self-leadership means you’re aware of the power of your path
As an aware and conscious being, you’re aware of the general trend of your life and the gifts you have developed and shared. But as a self-leader, you’re always curious and you’re always open to change.
As a self-leader, you know your path, but your job is also to notice the small detours or tilts that are offered and make wise choices about how to adjust and what direction you choose to move in.
Yet even as you explore new paths and opportunities, you keep your overarching vision and process clearly in mind and make choices from that place of power.
You have a vision
Self-leaders have a vision. They make decisions with an overall objective in mind. That objective can be flexible because change is a constant, but keep your eyes raised so you can see the new possibilities, the new opportunities and as a self-leader, choose for your own highest good.
Self-leadership means you know the power of your own vibration even when it’s not visible
Be responsible for your own power!
Although we’re all one energy, in our body suit lives we have a great deal to say about how we live our lives. Self-leadership means you’re responsible for your own power! That means you use it well. You use it wisely. You use it generously. You are self-responsible and accept all that comes your way as the result of your own thinking or actions or beliefs.
