Reworking my book and reading the part about my Inner Leader. She's been coming up a lot this week, I've been seeing her call me into greater and greater things, greater aspects of myself. I've been allowing her to take the reigns and inspire others as well.
"Great Leaders LEAD others towards the vision, they inspire and allow for course corrections, they take input from others and allow the project to evolve and grow. They see the biggest possibilities and they break them down into next steps. Great Leaders don't control their resources, they enhance and lift them up. They call out to the greatness within others and hold them to that higher vision... "
And I can see where I lead others in this way... but it's even more powerful to see how I lead myself.
It's so easy to lead outwardly, but to surrender my control and allow my heart to run the show? To allow my Virgo brain to simply stop and allow the higher voice of my Inner Leader to really truly call me into my greatness? That's the juicy stuff. That's where I don't just lead, I become a leader. I embody what leadership truly means to me.
"She doesn’t manage control of self or over others. She manages my soul over the ego and leads me into a new way of being fully present. She demotes the stories in my head and helps polish my inner glow to a high shine. There’s no attachment to proving those stories wrong or shaming myself for having them, nor is there an attachment to listening to them either. The stories aren’t her right-hand-man in all decision making. The decisions that my Leader makes are those that are always for the highest and best. Want to get shit done? The biggest stuff only gets done when my inner leader has been released. This is the stuff that propels me to my greatest purpose, a purpose she is fully invested in, stock options to the max."
Inner leadership... yum
