To get a huge difference, we also work at a deeper level of how we create our environment, our present, and our future. It is not only what we do every day, but how we think about it, plan it, and talk about. It is how we actually feel about the things that are going on in our life that determines what comes to us or does not. The basis of this conversation is the Law of Attraction. Simply put, this law states that what we think about becomes our reality. Sounds simple enough, right? Well, it is simple. All we have to do is become conscious of the reality we create through our thoughts and words. This is the deepest and most spiritually connected piece of work for the leader. Now, it is not enough to just know what it is that you are thinking about. A true leader, in first leading their own path, will take the brave step of taking absolute responsibility for their own thoughts and consequently their own circumstances.
From there, that leader will begin to create a new future. Commit to the Future As well as knowing your thoughts as a leader, you must also know your feelings. In the largest sense we are really only concerned with two sets emotions here: love and trust, or fear and doubt. Understanding how you can create a different path depending on the emotional state you are in supercharges your ability to lead. Today's article talks about the second competency, Commitment to the Future. While we call this the action part of transformation, it literally refers to the conscious act of starting to live out your vision of the future. I once saw one of my teachers at an event celebrating the end of a long development process. He was in his late 70's at the time, jitterbugging away at 2 am. I was inspired and thought to myself, I want to be dancing like that when I am that age. It later occurred to me, when would I start? If I'm not dancing now, what are the odds that I will be in 30 years? Commitment means starting to dance now, today, rather than later, someday. So, take a few minutes, take some notes, and change your life right now.
