We all have different personas; the child, the warrior, the sage etc.
These are personas that have unconsciously developed, and also that we have consciously developed, in ourselves.
The question is, who is running your show?
When you’re under pressure, when you’re under stress, when the shit hits the fan, who takes control?
Too often I see the child taking control. The child is scared, the child is defensive, the child is petulant. The child is rarely the best persona to be in charge, when you’re an adult.
So another question, who would you like to take control?
And an even better question, what needs to happen for that persona to take control?
We worry about things that might not work out.
We are all a combination of our experiences of the past.
We don’t need to detach from our painful past.
The you today is different from the you a year ago.
Sometimes leadership is about creating a vision and bringing people along.
To love and be loved. Isn’t that all there really is?
Almost everyone I know who has achieved greatness in something, be that business, sports, the arts, they all began their journey to escape something.
There’s a lot of talk now about hiring people for attitude rather than skills.
When we want something, we are taught to visualise that thing, to focus on that image, until we have it.
There’s almost never a completely clean run.
