Along with fearless passion and courage, becoming an authentic leader takes mental discipline. Here are 9 principles to get you started.
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn’t serve the world.…As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others. —Marriane Williamson, A Return to Love
I believe authentic leadership does not come from title, social stature, or the size of one’s paycheck but rather from how you live and the impact you make around you.
