As we move forward growing from this series on Healing, I want to remind you of the conditioning affect of society and mass culture and urge you to shift from being easily conditioned to leading. Lead yourself into freedom!
Our external environment influences us all. That’s not such a bad thing. The problem arises when we give little thought to or overlook how society has shaped us and perhaps now is leading rather than us doing the leading.
Lead Yourself means:
- You know that tokens of fame, popularity, status or position have nothing to do with leadership ability.
- You take action based on what you have available at the moment rather than complain about what is missing.
- You recognize there is no real power outside of you.
Ask yourself the tough questions. Are your habits aligned with where you want to go? Are your thoughts uplifting and leading you? Are you continually in the zone of additive growth, value and contribution?
Recognize that your physical body will not be influenced to do anything your mind hasn’t agreed to.
Pause long enough to know that “getting somewhere” is nowhere. Truth is uncovered right where you are now!
Deliberately choose your response, be intentional. That is authenticity!
