To be an effective leader, you need to be able to lead yourself with conscious focused energy towards all that you practise. Practise is referred to here as your regular daily actions, how you interact with life. If you do not pay conscious attention to what you practice, you are living habitually, not fully aware of your thoughts or subsequent behaviours and results. Habit is practise without mindfulness
As a leader, each thought and action reveals who you are. It is imperative that you are aware of your own self-talk, the words you use and how you respond to the world. once you become mindful, these become a rehearsal for interactions with others. Your self-talk forms the basis of how you view the world around you, the stories you tell yourself become beliefs.
By utilising these natural laws, you can lead with positive purpose. Begin by being the silent observer of your thoughts. This allows you an awareness and space to see if these thoughts are appropriate to the situation and to choose your best course of action.
You choose your view of the world, which produces the energy you to contribute to the world. You can choose to see the world as a place of fear and doubt or you can view it through the lens of love and trust. Whether you choose a negative or positive outlook, it has the power to create its corresponding situation in your life, empowering or destructive.
To become a vibrant transformational leader, commit to focusing your attention on yourself and how your thoughts are creating your emotions and impacting on those around you.
