I can't say this enough but can you tell that I'm friggin' excited for 2019?
I'm not doing anything different in my life but people around me feel it in my energy. It's an emotional and energetic shift I've been receiving since the birth of Eli and my own rebirthing process.
And my intention for this year is to show up despite naysayers and doubters because if I don't play all out in my life + biz, how can I show others to do the same?
So here are a summary of traits that I found in the magnetic and powerful leaders I've worked with over the last 14 years of supporting, training and coaching high-vibe and high-impact humans.
1. THEY ARE EXTREMELY CLEAR
With what they want to call in, who they want to impact and what they want to create in their world. They have not only dreamed about it, they’ve journaled it, visualised it, seen it in details, felt it and embody it.
They walk, talk and act as the future version of themselves. Because they know that’s the only way to be an energetic match their dreams / visions / purpose.
2. THEY TAKE ALIGNED ACTION
They know that talking about it, doing affirmations or writing in a journal alone won’t cut it. They take aligned actions. They do this from a place of believing that it’s done. Because they know their beliefs create their reality.
They know the difference between dreaming and doing. And they oscillate between those worlds fluidly.
3. THEY DON’T BUY INTO THE STORIES
They understand that we all have stories (and excuses). Some stories serve our purpose and some no longer do. They’re not hesitant to release the old patterns and stories that hold them back.
Instead of coming up with reasons (aka excuses) why things are impossible / can’t be done / not enough time / not enough money / not worthy of it / etc. … they choose to be willing and ready to create new stories to support their vision.
4. THEY MAKE FEAR THEIR FRIEND
They deeply understand that fear will be there in every level of our human experience.
They know this. They expect this. So instead of allowing fear to stop them, they make friends with it.
They use the power of fear to look at their shadows, the parts of them that are in their blindspots and use it to catapult themselves to the next level of their life + biz.
5. THEY DON’T BUY INTO THE STORIES OF OTHERS
They deeply understand that everyone has their own beliefs and stories why things should be done in a certain way.
They choose to respect it but not get affected by it - when people make judgements, criticism, throw comments or discourage them to move away from their path.
Because they know that in order for them to create something that not many has created in the world, they need to follow the path that not many are walking.
6. THEY ARE WILLING STUDENTS OF LIFE
While they are leaders in their business and community, they are always a student in their life. They understand the importance of learning, practicing, embodying and upleveling themselves continuously.
They aren’t afraid to invest in themselves or their business because they choose to focus on their vision instead of fear / scarcity.
7. THEY TAKE RESPONSIBILITY AND OWNERSHIP
Blaming is not something they practice. When something don’t go according to the plan - even if it’s because of outside influences - they choose to take radical responsibility and ownership.
When they don’t know something, they choose to figure it out. When they don’t understanding something, they choose to learn.
They don't give their power away to something or someone.
They choose to live this way, because this is how they want to show up in life.
And this way of living not only liberate and empower them, they become extremely magnetic. As a result, they attract their soul mate / tribe / clients into their life + biz effortlessly.
8. THEY HAVE CLEAR BOUNDARIES
Just like everyone else, they love to be loved, liked and accepted by others.
They also know where it ends by being a people pleaser, saying ‘yes’ to what they want to say ‘no’ to and lowering their standards to make others happy.
Instead, they choose to rise up, claim their space, let their light shine so bright, stand firm on their ground while knowing when to be flexible and own their power.
They show where the boundaries are, they honour who they are, where they are and they choose who / what to let in with love.
Doing this not only allow them to step up but also give a permission to others to do the same.
Obvs, there are so much more. In a nutshell, how you do everything is how you do anything.
This is our choice how we want to show up in our life, for our vision, purpose and the people we want to serve.
Just because someone has a team doesn't make them a leader. A leader is someone who does what's uncomfortable, chooses to step up anyway, embody what they teach and lead by example.
