Many people want to make a difference, or be highly successful, but few actually do.
What stands in their way?
They lack the confidence to face rejection and failure, and to take the risks that lead to success.
“Most people want to be fit, most people aren’t.
Most people want to build a successful business, most people won’t.
Most people want to be the best version of themselves, most people aren’t.
Most people have dreams they want to fulfill, most people won’t.
Everyone wants to quit something, build something, be something, do something.
Most people won’t.
How many things have we wanted? How many opportunities have we craved? How many broken things have we wanted to fix?
And how many of those have we shrunk from. Hid from. Or, excused away.
We’re not alone.
Most people won’t.
But every once in a while someone puts themselves out there.
Makes the leap. Faces rejection or failure or worse.
And comes out the other side. Better. Changed. Bolder.
Most people won’t. Which means those that do, change everything.”
Many people want to be a great, respected and admired leader, but….. they won’t.
In order to be a great, effective leader, you need to have the confidence in your own abilities and the mindset of success – only then you will be able to convince a whole team of people to follow your lead and do their best work.
You need to be able to trust yourself enough to take the necessary risks and take tough decisions. You need to be able to set clear boundaries and say NO much more often than you are comfortable with.
Getting past the anxiety and fear of messing up as a leader can be tricky. Very few people are naturally gifted with the ability to communicate, relate, and listen to people in an effective way.
For the rest of us, getting into the ‘leadership mode’ requires us to constantly step outside of our comfort zone, and work hard to stay in touch with what our people need from us.
This is a time when your people are looking to you for guidance.
It’s a big moment for you to step up, and it’s important for you to be able to step up the right way. You need to know how to show up and to have the confidence and identity that your people can recognize and rely on, especially in moments of uncertainty and confusion.
You need to know how to show up so that you inspire trust, and how to take the right type of actions every day, even though it might get you unpopular for a while.
Leaders make decisions, and not all of them are well-received. Someone will always be there to criticize you, no matter what, but if you have the strong self-awareness, self-confidence and healthy self-esteem, you will be UNSTOPPABLE.
