When we judge others we set up expectations that may allow thoughts of “greater than” and “lesser than” to creep in, sabotaging the other person’s ability to learn and grow at his or her own pace and, in turn, bringing ourselves discontent.
It is then that we are no longer a leader either of ourselves or of others.
The key is to understand yourself, where you have been and where you are going in life. Effective leaders inspire others to follow them, but to inspire others you must first feel that inspiration within yourself.
If you are not feeling happy and fulfilled it is time to stop and take stock of your life, where you are at and where you want to be. You cannot please everyone. If you try to please everyone, you will please no one and be left feeling let down, resentful and unfulfilled.
Ask yourself “Who am I doing this for? Am I doing this because someone else expects me to or am I doing it because it feels right for me?” Remember that you are in charge. You are the leader of yourself and of your own life. It’s time to live your own truth. Find out and celebrate who you are and what you truly want out of life. You then become a true leader of yourself and an inspiration and leader to others.
By demonstrating strong inspiring leadership of yourself in your own life you will automatically inspire others to become strong inspired leaders of themselves.
