Most people are not living their dreams, they never do things they want to do, they live an average 9 to 5 life, going from paycheck to paycheck. They stop believing that they are meant to live an extraordinary life, they settle for whatever they get, they doubt themselves, and let others define their past. They work in a survival mode and fear rejection and failures and soon when their career life comes to an end and when they look back they wonder and ask themselves what did I ever do with the time and opportunities I had while I was here.
YOU are here to create an impact, to do something extraordinary to fulfill your dreams but sadly many of you are going to leave your professional life feeling unfulfilled and full of regrets. You are going to be pushed from one job to another, one client to another, one title to another. If you want to live an extraordinary life, if you want to succeed in life, if you want to get from where you are to where you want to be then you must ask yourself that, am I a follower? Or am I a leader? Because followers are the ones who are constantly waiting for directions, waiting for circumstances to change, they have to be told where to go and what to do. Leaders on the other hand are unique people. The only distinction between a follower and a leader is their mindset, a leader’s mindset is very different. They are the ones who have a purpose, they create their goal and keep moving no matter what.
How can YOU be a leader?
To be a leader you don’t need extraordinary skills or talent. Leadership has nothing to do with your title, role, or circumstances. Leadership is a mindset. What type of mindset do you go to work with every day? Do you wake up every morning feeling like a victim or do you wake up and act like a person in charge? Where you are today is because of your thoughts and if you don’t like where you are then you got to change your thinking about yourself. That’s how leaders are born.
You cannot be a leader if you don’t have the mindset of a leader, no amount of training, management methods, or promotions can substitute your mindset because what you think about yourself is the way you behave, and most of us sadly are getting conditioned to behave averagely. You’ve got to believe that you are here to try, you’ve got to believe that there is a leader within you. Don’t let your current reality consume you, don’t let other people’s opinions define you, don’t live life averagely, and don’t settle for less when you know that you are made for more. Believe that you are here to make your mark on the world.
Make a commitment to yourself today onwards to develop a leadership mindset that changes the way you see yourself and the world and become that impactful leader you are born to be.
Hope this is of much value to you in your journey to success.
