You can’t teach that which you don’t have

You can’t teach that which you don’t have

You can’t teach what you don’t have – This is important whether you’re a student, an entrepreneur or a business professional. It’s just as important whether you’re a leader in your corporate life, with your family or in your community.

Before you can lead others, you have to lead yourself. But what does that really mean❓

Learn a new skill, hone an existing one or maybe get 360 feedback to better understand the areas you need to improve. Leading yourself could also mean stretching your vision, identifying areas of growth and developing a growth plan to move closer to that vision. Of course taking action has to happen to.

Whatever it is, point yourself in the right direction, equip yourself with the right tools and skills, and the rest will fall into place.
Leading yourself…growing yourself…this all happens outside of the comfort zone. Nothing good has ever come out of the comfort zone – that’s where your dreams and goals go to die! ☠️ 

👉🏽 Stay in your GROWTH ZONE – that’s where magic happens!

Pour into yourself and others

I recently I joined a mastermind group in which we’re focusing on the book ‘Think and Grow Rich’. This is giving me a chance to expand my thinking, stretch my vision and connect with other like-minded people.

On top of that, I’ll be able to apply what I learn from this mastermind in my life of course. But I’ll also be able to share some things with others, like you!

So, why not start the sharing right now?

One key takeaway was how powerful affirmations can be. An app that was highly recommended for this is called Think Up. This is not a sponsored email, nor do I have an affiliate connection with this app. Just sharing because it’s actually pretty good 👍🏽. I got it and it’s pretty easy to set up and use. 👌🏽
Why am I sharing all of this? What’s the bigger reason? As a reminder…to pour into yourself AND each other. Because there’s no reason why we all can’t win!
So with all this, I’d like you to ask yourself:

  • What are you doing to help yourself grow❓
  • What are you doing to help others grow❓

You don’t have to know all the answers, or be light years ahead of someone. Even if you’re a couple of steps ahead, pull others along.

Until next time, conquer your leadership potential!
