The Power of I

The only person in the world who can create your life, in your time and in your way – is you.  And that ‘you’ must be your most authentic and genuine self, empowered by knowing and doing what only you can do best in the world.  As you become more and more focused on the life and legacy you want to create and the person you want to become, you find clarity of purpose, renewed focus and energy and the motivation to re-invent to the next highest level of you.

I found myself and my inner champion in three words - inspire, ignite and impact.  I found my passion, my purpose – my inspiration.  I ignited it with a solid strategic plan aligned to my core values and authentic self.  And then I took the action necessary to make the impact I dreamed of – on my life and the lives of others.  And I did it on my terms, in my way and in my time.

Transformation and reinvention was the result, and “i to the power of 3®” was born.  It’s all about spending the time and effort to grow; learning through the failures and successes; and opening ourselves up to the world no matter how scary or intimidating.  It’s becoming real.

To inspire ourselves or anyone else, we must first know and understand ourselves at deeper level than we ever have before.  We need to uncover our true passion and talents.  Once we find that, we become inspired and find that we can inspire others to do the same – with truth, passion, values, intention, purpose and consciousness.

It’s a wonderful thing to have a vision of where you are going and to finally begin to understand who you are, what gifts and talents you possess and what excites and motivates you.  But, if you don’t have a plan to actualize this inner knowledge, it will stay where it is – internal! You must ignite your passion in order to grow, evolve and emerge as a champion!

Now you have your inspiration and plan to ignite it. Next final step?  Make an impact – you must take action!  Hour by hour, day by day, week by week, month by month and so on… you need to follow-up on your vision and your planning with specific goals and action.  You need to do the work.  And you will begin to see the life you have imagined – become real.

The ‘i’s are in lower case because they do not have room for your ego.  We must set aside our egos and just be truly who we are.  I know what you’re thinking, “but I do that already!” And good for you if you do, but I still challenge you to see if you can raise that bar even higher.

The three ‘I’s’ are the three keys to discovering and developing your inner leader and to emerge as a champion.  If we are to become the very best human being we can in all aspects of our life on earth, then we need to understand and embrace our very own, unique and powerful ‘i’.

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.
