We may not all be born to be a leader of many, but we all lead at least one VERY important person ~ Yourself.

And really, to be a leader of many, this is the task you must truly master.

You are the only person that can control your thoughts, your emotions, your words and your actions. You lead yourself in whatever direction you let your thoughts, emotions, words and actions take you.

So getting some help in choosing and taming what goes on in your head is vital when it comes to moving in a positive direction.

Follow in Happy Footsteps

Leaders are those that teach Love with the 5 E’s.

They lead by Example, use Explicit Communication, and create and share Experience. They Energize and Empower those around them.

Whether you want to become a leader who is remembered as one of the great influencers of history, or you simply want to live a life you Love, it’s worth paying attention to what works well.

Find people who are further along the path to happiness and fulfillment.

To be a great leader, you must first become a loyal follower.

Study and practice the teachings of those that have mastered their minds and their habits. Darren Hardy shared a lot on this topic while he was the publisher at success.com.

Spend as much time as possible consuming information and knowledge that will help you guide yourself to your full potential.

Commit to daily engagement with material that uplifts and inspires you to continue on your journey of personal development.

Skip the media, food, activities and people who will distract you from achieving your goals and making the world a better place. Make decisions that promote health and demonstrate self-Love.

Leadership is Love

Really, leadership is showing the world an example of Love to follow.

Leaders exhibit focus and dedication to something bigger than themselves. They live with conviction and the belief that life can keep getting better.

Leadership uses the virtues of Love to promote a message of joy, hope and peace.

With courage and compassion, patience and wisdom, leaders share their vision and enlist others to join in the mission.

Leaders possess a positive attitude and contagious enthusiasm about whatever cause they Love.

You offer the world a great gift with the act of leading yourself towards a life of Love. Just by accepting and expressing yourself freely, you are allowing others to embrace themselves more fully.

As a parent, you are an incredibly influential leader to your children. Your example will likely have more impact on them than any other.

Even if you don’t aspire to step into a professional role as a leader, seek leadership skills to support your personal success. Discover what gets you excited and makes you feel alive.

Continually build an awareness of what’s going on in your inner world. This is where you first create and design your life.

Identify yourself as a Loving person and grow into someone that others look to for leadership.
