Sometimes we embark on the journey not knowing where it will take us, understanding that the journey itself may be more important than the destination.
Many of the battlefronts we fight and face with our leadership never move beyond our own internal boundaries. They are the battles that we fight within. An internal compass that we ourselves control.
Which is often fraught with fear.
- our own internal and external limitations
- of perceptions
- of not knowing
If we have…
- the ability
- the knowledge
- the courage.
A leaders battlefront is often staged mentally, fought within. Which is why the journey is so important.
It is in the journey that we gain our legs. The journey is where we build our stamina and garner the strength required for the mental and physical toll that each leader must pay.
Leadership courage often resides in overcoming ourselves and our self-imposed limitations…in creating our mental will. A mental will that allows us to overcome ourselves and that inner voice that holds us back.
The leadership journey requires…
Reflection. Connection. Interaction. Collaboration. Introspection. Progression.
A journey that provides the impetus for…
Creation. Innovation. Evolution. Transformation.
A journey of progression, a mental revolution. One of which we leave behind a littered path of mental abandonment.
A journey of loss…
And a journey of gain.
Leadership is not forged in the cut and dried, the this or that, black or white…rather, it is honed within those many shades of grey we face/
