I can still remember the moment the penny dropped.
I was on a leadership course And he was sharing each and every single one of us have the capacity to lead... No matter where we are in an organisation.
I had heard the analogies before,
Heck - I’d even taught them to others!!!
I knew that we all had important roles to play (yes, even the cleaner),
But never before had I inserted myself in the equation.
Never had it REALLY dawned on me that the principle applied to me too!!!
I always just believed it was my job to help others realize their potential in life.
But now I was faced with a new level of responsibility.
It was time to wake up to the reality that I too could make a difference... right here... right now!
I started picking up my game.
I started looking closer at the bigger picture.
I started honing my skills & challenging myself to grow.
I started focusing more on making a difference & influencing (right from where I was)!
Things started shifting and changing for me.
I moved into bigger leadership roles,
I gathered more skills, knowledge and experience,
And I started looking for different challenges!
First came entrepreneurship,
Then came the call to making a different kind of impact in the branding space,
Then came the call to move back to the town we grew up in,
Then came the call to get involved in the towns tourism.
I have been called to make an impact, and so have you!
When we just focus on taking one next step,
And lead from right where we are (with what we have),
Great things happen!
Don’t lose heart... keep making a difference!!!
The world needs the impact you were called to make!
Tag someone who you made an impact on your world! ♥️♥️♥️
