So often I am asked:

“What are the top few things I need to do to become an exceptional leader? How do I get to the next level?”

First, I would say, it’s not just about what you need to DO (although effective action is very important) it’s also very much about who you need to BE.

Most of the world operates in a “DO, HAVE, BE” model. What do I need to do, to have what I want to have and then I will be…. happy, fulfilled, healthy etc… You fill in the blank.

Unfortunately, this model does not bring sustained success, nor happiness. We need to flip it to the “BE, DO, HAVE” model. Ask yourself: Who do I need to be and what do I need to do to have what I want to have? Become who you need to be with your goals achieved. Follow this model and you will see success and happiness in any area of your life and especially in your Leadership Journey.

My top 4 tips to BECOMING a ‘World Class, Heart Centered’ Leader are:

  1. Have a Vision and BE authentically you
    • Great leaders have vision for their life and their career. They know who they are and what they desire. They understand their strengths and their areas of focus. They don’t pretend to be something they are not. BE authentically you!!! They surround themselves with others that are excellent at what they do and work tirelessly to help them grow.
  2. Treat Others the Way You Want to Be Treated
    • How do you react to others? Do you realize that you can change someone’s day just by your leadership? It’s the little details of what we do as leaders that matter most. When you come into a room as a leader (professional and personal) do you light it up? How do you show up? Are you the Torch Bearer leading the way? Treating others, the way you want to be treated is what I call HEART BASED Leadership. BE the Leader who truly cares and has their best interest in mind.
  3. Exceptional Leaders give more than they get
    • Always go Above and Beyond. BE the Leader at the level you are striving for long before you are ever paid at this level. You are the creator of every result you have or don’t have in your career and your life. Want different results? Look at what you give daily. It will radically change your success trajectory.
  4. The smartest Leaders are Intelligent Followers
    • You never want to be the smartest person in the room. What do I mean by this? You are a torch bearer for the people you lead in your life. Find 1 or 2 torch bearers that can be that for you. Without them you will not have the support you need to grow and learn. Without them you are the smartest person in the room and will not continue to excel in your leadership journey. BE the Intelligent Follower. Follow someone who has what you want and ask them for support. It will be the smartest decision you make as a Leader.

With so much heaviness continuing to happen in the world I felt compelled to write today about Confidence and Belief. Belief in yourself and how to tap into your Powerful Self Confidence. Even if you might not feel totally confident in all that you do today, I promise you confidence is in you and with these steps you can work to build it back up – no matter what is happening around you!

Belief is a state of mind! It comes directly from your thoughts. Thoughts that have very strong emotion attached to them. Unfortunately, many of us do not take the time to truly ‘think’. When I say think I mean asking yourself important, personal question and then going deep inside yourself for the answers. Getting quiet and letting the answer appear. So many of us are continually looking externally for our answers. Our beliefs, Our confidence. They aren’t out there. They are inside you.

I came across an interesting stat the other day that speaks to this. Did you know that 2% of us truly think (as I have described above), 3% think they think and 95% would rather die than think? Just let that sink in. What percent are you in? Are you willing to dig deep to find your answers, take effective action and make the change or go after the goals you have set for yourself?

Belief is one of the most powerful emotions we have and when we attach true belief to what we want our subconscious mind immediately stands at attention. It works to provide us what we want quickly when you truly believe. Anything you want in life has to start with your belief. You can never outperform your belief. Believe you are worthy of having what you want and watch your self confidence soar. They are directly linked to each other.

The great news about belief is you can build it!! If you want to build belief and self confidence in yourself commit to the step in the Self Confidence Formula listed below. It will guide you in allowing your thoughts to be positive, motivational, and full of confidence

The Leadership Self Confidence Formula:

  1. Define your goal & write it out daily. Clearly know what your desire. Believe you can achieve it. Confidence is built through Clarity, Dedication, Persistence and Action.
  2. Create a ‘To BE’ list. Define who you need to be with your goal achieved. Visualize yourself as this version of yourself for a minimum of 30 minutes per day.
  3. Create an Affirmation Statement to match your desired state of BEING. Write it out & say it (out loud) for 10 minutes per day.
  4. Have an attitude of service & gratitude. Give before you get. Always go Above & Beyond. Continually give to others. What you give will always come back to you. Have belief in others and they in turn will believe in you.

Do these 4 steps consistently and persistently and you will see your belief and self confidence grow, your desires will become your reality and your vibration will move to levels of happiness, joy and meaningful purpose. It all starts with belief!!

Have you ever had anyone in your life tell you wanting MORE is not ok?

You should be happy with what you have. Your very lucky to have the life that you have. You don’t seem very grateful! Have you heard this? I would guess many of you answered YES. I sure have!!

And because of this you now have this ASSUMPTION that it’s not OK to want MORE in your life!!

We may or may not know where this came from. I’m not sure that really matters. The fact is it’s your current ASSUMPTION and its 100% holding you back. What I want to tell you today, if you get one thing from this email – please know this is BS!!!

We are 100% meant for MORE. We are meant to always be growing and expanding in our life. Every single one of us. Not to get all ‘nerdy’ on you but the reality is you are always either growing or disintegrating – PERIOD! It’s how energy works. It’s just science.

Do these questions sound familiar?

  • This can’t be all there is for me?
  • There must be more!
  • I know I’m not on the right path and I need to figure this out before its too late!

Then that is your soul speaking to you. Letting you know your right! You are meant for MORE and its 100% OK to think, feel and ASSUME this.
Now I know what you’re thinking right now!! HOW do I do this? How do I go get MORE in my life?
Keep reading for the Secret Sauce!
The key is BEcoming the master of your assumptions! Below I explain how in 3 important steps.

  1. Desire: What is it that you want? You must know this. It must be clear. Your goal and your Burning Desire is your rudder. You know you want MORE, what does that mean to you? Define it.
  2. Imagination: Once you’re clear on what you want, the next critical step is to define who you need to BE to achieve this goal. What assumptions, thoughts, traits, beliefs do you need to have? If you want something different, you need to BE and DO something different! The great secret in the Power of Assumption is using your imagination! Creating the version of you in your mind and then BEING her is the answer to getting MORE!
  3. Attention: Now, 1 more point on Imagination that’s really about Attention. Many tell me that can’t imagine. They try and nothing comes up. If you are a worrier, you can imagine. WORRY & DOUBT are imagination in the negative or what I would call uncontrolled imagination! The key is to be aware and to control your imagination. Make it positive, present, what you WANT. Not what you don’t want or what you are fearful of!! Attention equals ‘Blinders On’ – concentrated focus is necessary. BEING obsessed with your goal. It gets you out of bed in the morning. You’ve never done it or had it before, but you know and believe you will figure it out. NO MATTER WHAT! You are willing to do what it takes! You have DECIDED!! A secret to Success and having MORE is to focus your attention on the feeling of you BEING you with your goal achieved. Do this daily. It will take work and practice.

If your life is not where you want it to be, don’t accept that. Know that you can change it. Know that you truly are meant for MORE and know that you are not alone. I am here cheering you on!!
