Leading Yourself Towards a Brighter Future

Self-leadership is about leading yourself towards your inspiring vision, stretch goals, and personal excellence. It is an extensive set of strategies focused on the behaviors, thoughts, and feelings that you use to exert influence over yourself.

To make real changes and lead others, you have to lead yourself first. This is actually your greatest challenge and one of the most important things you’ll ever do as a leader.  If you lead yourself well, then you will earn the right to lead others. You can be a superleader and leads others to lead themselves.

Effective self-leadership involves a coordinated effort between you, your team, and the organization as a whole.

Self-Leadership Strategies

Self-leaders involves utilization of both behavioral and mental techniques.

To lead yourself, create an inspiring vision and set goals for your life. Your vision will lead you. Visualize a life that is exactly as you want it. When you see your goal in your mind, you engage the power of your subconscious mind that will help you build winning habits and bring your dream to life. Now, take initiative and start moving towards your goals. Challenge assumptions, champion change, take risk and experiment. And remember, there is no failure, only feedback. Ask learning SWOT questions and restart wiser. Fail small to succeed big.

Be a lifelong learner, and be passionate about it. If you stop learning, you stop creating history and become history.

John Maxwell on Self-Leadership

During a Q&A session at a conference, someone asked, “What has been your greatest challenge as a leader?”

“Leading me!” John Maxwell answered. “That has always been my greatest challenge as a leader.” Some in the audience were surprised by his response. The more experienced leaders were not. Like John, they could trace many of their failures to their own personal leadership mismanagement.

“Human nature seems to endow us with the ability to size up everybody in the world except ourselves... Leading yourself well means that you hold yourself to a higher standard of accountability than others do,” says John Maxwell. That’s why his book Winning with People begins with the Mirror Principle: “The first person we must examine is ourselves.”
