Reach for the Stars and Increase Your Leadership Community!
One innate skill each one of us possesses is leadership! Regardless of your title or position at work we all actively engage in a leadership role every moment of our cherished lives. Whether it’s the decisions we make each day to do, be or have something or when we are choosing too not do, be or have something; including the people we surround ourselves with both personally and professionally.
Once you give up the notions most of us have to doing it alone in life, you’ll develop the insight and wisdom to recognize your limitations and realize you cannot achieve your goals, dreams and desires alone but that it takes a team to get you there! One of the pinnacles of true success is leadership which is bringing other people with you. Otherwise, you may have the title or position of a leader but ultimately lack the qualities and ability to successfully lead. If you or someone says it’s lonely at the top then you know the true leadership qualities are lacking, as in order to lead you must have others with you once you get there or wherever it is you’re going or you are not leading.
When you begin to uplift and empower others to be the fullest expressions of themselves, it’s not only developing but surrounding yourself with other leaders which builds a solid foundation for longevity and sustainability in any endeavor. Whether it’s teaching your children how to become self sufficient with self-care, creativity, time management, organization and picking up after themselves or empowering your co-workers, colleagues and staff to implement their own innate gifts and talents into the company’s organization, products and services; you are making them a part of something that is so much bigger than themselves while guiding them into becoming the fullest expression of who they were created to be!
The greatest gift you can ever give to another person or yourself is to build your personal community of leaders with your family, friends, acquaintances and co-workers as if they were a team; just as our national sport organizations or Olympics do. Begin by implementing each persons own unique creative gifts and talents within your tribe (those which you have influence) and then assemble each one of them to collectively collaborate (within the specific group) for the highest good of all by expanding them beyond where they currently are and empowering them to reach for the stars while getting them to where they want to be; knowing that when they succeed ultimately, we all succeed!
Leadership is a win-win qualitative commodity and it’s one of the best gifts when it comes to giving back in life by uplifting others and simultaneously being good to yourself; as what you put out comes back to you. They say you are only as good or strong as your weakest link(s) are so by developing and enhancing leadership within each member of your team regardless of the objective … this is when YOU achieve true SUCCESS while creating a legacy!

SIBYL MAGAZINE: FOR THE SPIRIT AND SOUL OF WOMAN
“Leadership is when YOU have the integrity coming from the mindset to be of service and add value to other people’s lives through personal development, empowering them to the highest levels of who they are by implementing their own innate unique gifts and talents and making them a part of something so much bigger than themselves; and guiding them into becoming the fullest expression of who they were created to be! This is when you achieve true SUCCESS!”
