Blessings and Becoming Your Own Champion

You know all of those “truisms” we heard when we were growing up? Those old adages that told us to be cautious, not to risk too much, to believe (and prepare for) the worst that could happen?  Ever wonder what life would look like if you flipped those statements around?

This Ronald Wallace poem offers the following…

Blessings occur.
Some days I find myself putting my foot in the same stream twice;
leading a horse to water and making him drink.
I have a clue.
I can see the forest for the trees.
All around me people are making silk purses out of sows’ ears,
getting blood from turnips, building Rome in a day.
There is a business like show business.
There is something new under the sun.
Some days misery no longer loves company; it puts itself out of its.
There is rest for the weary.
There is turning back.
There are guarantees.
I can be serious. I can mean that.
You can quite put your finger on it. Really.
Some days I know I am long for this world.
I can go home again.
And when I go, I can take it with me.”

What are you doing differently to become more of who you really are? What are your goals?  What are you doing to achieve them?  How will today be any different than a year from now?  What are you doing to make a difference – for yourself – for your family – for your professional growth and success?  Set goals.  Take action. 

Become your own best champion.  Do it.  Now.

Genuine leadership is defined by heart, integrity, honesty, courage, compassion and those many intangible qualities of being and creating the most authentic person and leader that resides within each one of us. It takes time, awareness, knowledge and purpose to build our inner leadership and leadership in others. And, it takes grit. It requires a willingness to be vulnerable and show our true selves to the world; strength to speak our mind clearly and with confidence; empathy and compassion for ourselves and others while staying strong and determined; and the focus, faith and belief to do what we know is right even when it is the most difficult thing to do. Its a fascinating journey and one I have traveled for decades. The further I go, the more I realize how much I still need to learn and experience. It seems like just when I reach a new level of self-awareness, something comes into my life that reminds me I still have much to learn and many more levels to ascend. Exciting? Yes.
