BE A Leader


Leadership is leading by example, walking the walk and never asking anyone to do anything that you are not willing to do yourself. It is someone who guides and inspires others towards the accomplishment of a collective goal, mission, or vision. Inspire others to be creative, work hard to accomplish things instead of requiring them to get things done - is a much better solution.

Dwight Eisenhower said, “Leadership is the art of getting someone else to do something you want done because he wants to do it.”

Each one of us was sent to this earth to become Life Long Learners. From the time we were born we have a thirst to learn and the need to experience new things; however, too many of us go through life just mildewing our way to retirement. The result leaves us unsatisfied, unchallenged and often lifeless.

It is powerful to realize that attention goes, energy flows! When we drink from the fountain of knowledge we are continually investing in ourselves by fuelling our life tank of edification. I am not saying to drop everything and go back to school, (unless you want to) I am saying, read a book, listen to an audio book, listen to your parents and grandparents, and learn something new. Step away from the computer and start asking questions…as long as you are truly ready to “Listen and HEAR” the answer. Spend some time learning how other people experienced life and the lessons they learnt. Take a look at how it was done in the past and then create your own outcome. Leaders stand out in a crowd because of their ability to influence others through vision, integrity, authenticity and self confidence. They possess humility, focus, people skills, and effective communication skills.

Great Leaders are Mentors that build a team of the right people and put them into a position that highlights that individuals’ straight while recognizing and praising the team member’s accomplishments. Mentors spend time in all areas of the company learning from the front line as well as being able to gain perspective of the big picture of the corporate setting. They share information- knowledge is power, arm your staff with all of the tools they need to reach their goals. Long gone are the days of Management by dictatorship…"if you don't like it, then we can find ten other people to do your job!" We now live in a time where employers must create a culture that inspires greatness in employees [a time that all staff yearn to make a difference and feel they are important to the company they work for.] Managers must listen more then ever to the needs and desires of their staff. The more ideas that are shared the more solutions that are created. Also, very importantly, Leaders have Mentors to whom they turn for opinions and ideas.

Finally, the old saying of, “God gave you two ears and only one mouth for a reason,” is so true because we should be listening twice as much as we speak. Listening is a much undeveloped talent that we all continually need to work on. Far too often we enter into a conversation only waiting for the other person to finish speaking just so that we can talk. We stand there looking at them intently rehearsing what our reply is going to be instead of really hearing what the other person is saying. In order to truly become good at anything we must practice, Listening like all talents must be utilized continually …strive to fully develop your talent of Listening. Good leaders must be willing to handle opinions contrary to their own and absorb as much as they can. Learn all that you can about your team members and strive to build strong relationships. Never take them for granted… create an ownership mentality. When staff are treated like equals, they will respond in the same way, they will strive for greatness in all they do. When you take care of your employees, they will in turn take care of your customers…who are they reason why you are in business in the first place. Never forget that and you have the recipe for success.

The three key ingredients that make up a great leader:

Lead by Example
Be a Life Long Learner
Listen twice as much as you speak.


Be a Leader in your own Life!
Humbly Yours,
Marcia

From ME to WE!


The other day while reflecting about the friend limit that I have reached on facebook and how I can no longer add any more friends, I asked a friend how she created such an amazing twitter following, she said that she had a handful of fantastic re-tweeters and great friends…and the rest was just numbers.

She then asked how I do everything that I have created. My reach may not be as deep … but it is extremely wide. With 8 twitter accounts, (linked to some of my facebook pages) 22 groups that I am administrator of (the majority I have created) radio shows, applications, websites , magazines I write for and more. How do I do it? …well…I just do. ..because nobody told me I couldn’t!

My access to outstanding people spans the globe. With the touch of a button, I can share, learn and grow with thousands and thousands… and thousands. It may look like I do everything, however, from a different perspective, I have a huge network of amazing people working together..sharing with each other. They are OUR groups, pages, sites, etc…

For example: I have not personally sent 800,000 applications (that I built) around the world… it was YOU. I simply provided the gift of my own talent.
My ability to embrace many, in multiple areas of interest has facilitated all types of possibilities. I AM a network connector…bridging the gap between business, investing, leadership, natural laws, personal development, charity and spirituality. Part of my purpose is to highlight the potential of working together as WE…rather than working alone as ME.

Globally we are entering a new era of joint ventures and elevating others by offering a hand up rather than a hand out! Transforming the patterned mindsets of climbing my own way to the top, to that of one where we step into abundance together. Working collectively for the greater good of the entire planet is the direction our human evolution is taking us on in this journey of learning.

From the state of mind of “WE”, we are able to transcend the F.E.A.R of limiting beliefs and step into the new earth where people work jointly rather than against. WE allow the opportunity to see things through eyes of others and ask, how can we help?…Rather than telling people what they need! WE will work Together..as ONE!


Humbly Yours,
Marcia
