You know you want to step up your game as a leader, yet where do you begin?
Is it communication, listening, developing your team at home and at the office, block scheduling? All of these are amazing and will make an impact on your world, however it all begins with YOU and your vision of yourself.
A mirror (metaphorically speaking) will help you take a look and get viscerally real with yourself. This can be a life changing experience. You may be able to see clearer than ever before and identify what’s working in your life as well as what’s not. You may also get to know what your dreams are and what you are currently doing or not doing to make them your reality.
If you are like most people, you are running by the mirror every day as fast as you can to get things done and checked off your lengthy to do list! The mirror is the perfect tool to help you become fully engaged as a leader in your own life and help you get closer to living the life you desire both at home and at work.
Pause, take a breath and gaze into the looking glass for a few minutes. Who do you see? Are you taking charge of your life or do you see someone with huge potential hanging out in a comfy chair watching life go by and dreaming of what could be?
We all dread looking in the mirror at certain times in our life. It takes courage to face the extra pounds, the sneakers that are still in the box or the crucial conversation you have wanted to have with your team or boss at work. It takes tenacity to close a big deal, only to get up and go after a bigger deal tomorrow.
The glance in the mirror helps hold you accountable to creating the external body that you want to show up wearing in the world. It can also help you create your internal experience as well. You get to change both images you have of yourself starting today.
Would you like to start peeking out from your hiding spot and let your light shine for a few minutes or hours tomorrow? Stepping out of the comfort zone and actually leading your life can be scary. Let love lead the way and be kind to yourself in the process.
Life and leadership are comprised of moments. Each moment you have the opportunity to be open to new possibilities to make a difference in your own life and the lives of others around you. Will you step into the mirror today and discover all that is waiting there for you as well as what is waiting to be shared with the world?
