I learn to be a leader as the oldest in the family. But, um. .. let's say my brothers and sisters would tell you I had a lot to learn. We all do ... all our lives.
Putting ourselves out there owning a business doesn't mean that we can yet lead in complexity well. Instead, we have to learn and grow as our businesses do.
We think challenges in running a business, at home or in our play are "difficult" and focus on other people, situations or events that could occur or have already happened.
Exploring our self-belief, skills, and current actions/lack of action and getting perspective on the actual obstacles is leading. Reflecting first to lead is the best strategy to create opportunity rather than simply reacting.
Are you a business leader who leads yourself?
Give yourself some credit first. What great results are you getting with strategies that align with your skills, self-belief, and consistent action?
Conversely, the challenges and opportunities where you perhaps don't have the skills, self-belief, or the action isn't happening consistently.
There is nothing wrong when we need more skills, self-belief, or different actions. However, great leaders are willing to explore everything to accelerate their current results and how they feel. The more successful we are, the more we need to self-lead.
Deep dive by journaling, meditating, self-coaching, getting mentored, learning new skills, or getting what you need to show up as a self-leading leader in business. (If you think 'I don't have time to do this – check out your leadership in urgency, priorities and managing time)
You have this when you self lead .... which doesn't include blaming anyone; most of us do when things don't go the way we want.
