If you can handle being different, standing out from the crowd, your life should be quite interesting. When you let your light shine you give others permission to do the same. As you are liberated from your own fear your presence automatically liberates others.
When you move outside of your comfort zone the wolves around you will try to stop you from leading others in a better direction. Wolves are cunning hunters that seek to feed off of fear by creating increasing amounts of drama, chaos, conflict and disengagement. Trying to manage these symptoms while ignoring the root cause of the problem has become a dated and obsolete approach. There is a better way.
When you lower your walls and allow the light of your leadership to shine through you inspire and enable those around you more than you can possibly imagine. Leadership is both difficult and essential to innovation and growth. The process of leading cultural change is like walking through a war zone. You will see misery, trauma and occasional casualties.
You must begin by focusing on creating an emotional connection with the Vision of your desired result. You must begin with the end in mind. The sense of urgency this creates is essential to your ultimate success. Unless you move quickly and decisively the wolves will use any delay to strengthen their resistance. Leadership matters because until the new culture becomes firmly established the herd will continually try to revert back to its old habits.
If you want an interesting life you must be willing to stand out from the crowd. Life beings at the end of your comfort zone.
