We are all guilty of waiting for the perfect time to pursue our goals. The truth is, there is never a perfect time. If we wait too long, we will be too late to start achieving them. Waiting also dampens confidence. When we are afraid to do something, if we think that it is ok to fail, the fear of going ahead and pursuing it will disappear. The fear of failure is what prevents us doing something new.
We cannot wait for a leader to take our hand to make the first step. We must do this ourselves. We must ask for help, support and we need to be motivated. We will not always know where we are going or where we want to go until we start the process of moving towards what we want to achieve. We can then plan our path and our goals. Leadership is something that can be learned. We have to break away from the crowd. Leadership starts with self-discipline and all the great leaders are authentic, honest and are a good person. A good leader will lead by example, always do the right thing, care about team members as well as treat everyone with respect and be fair. These qualities will create trust. Believe in ourselves, our product, in other people and our business will progress. Cooperate, respect and share credit.
My Action Plan:
I am not the ideal candidate for leadership. It is something I really need to work on. I am learning to build my self-confidence. This is an important quality for leadership. The people that follow me have to be able to trust my judgement. My belief has increased over the past year which will give me the confidence I need. Taking action is another quality I need to build or I will never achieve results. I need to take responsibility for my success and be able to make the correct decisions. I have to learn what my team needs to succeed.
However, I have some skills that make a good leader. I am understanding of what people want and I am a good listener. I am patient, so I can control my emotions in situations that are stressful. Patience helps me to be understanding towards others. Working on my personal development is a great skill I have enjoyed doing that will build my weaknesses and enhance my strengths.
I think of myself as a person of great authenticity, sincerity, courage, integrity, passion and honesty. I feel happy with myself having these qualities. I feel how good it feels to be a good leader. I imagine all the positive things happening to my business such as, building a huge team and bringing out the best in each team member. I do this regularly and I will create the correct beliefs, habits and mindset of a great leader.
