The Secret of Great Leadership
Right now, I’m on a plane. Flying back to Australia from Los Angeles.
I’m sipping an almond milk chai, doing what I can to soothe my system for a good nights sleep on the long haul flight coming up. I’m going to stay awake as long as I can to align with Aussie time, so I can avoid the jet lag when I land. (It’s a good trick - get onto your destination’s time zone as early as possible…)
The Real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes ~ Marcel Proust
I made this video after a long day sitting with my Mastermind group in Santa Monica, Los Angeles. A group of very powerful humans - an ex headhunter in New York, a leadership PhD, a woman who speaks about love to conquer racism and sexism and current issues, and a woman selling her business for a billion dollars right now (!!! They are putting wifi on Mars!!).
What I love about these people though is the achievements most of the world are impressed by, are not what they wanna be known for. The woman who is selling her biz for a billion, is also a Shaman - and a successful single mother. She’s more proud of that than the changing the world science stuff. I love her for this.
Community and environment are so important.
When you’re hanging with the right crowds for you, your world can truly change. Being supported to think big, or to slow down, or to stand up, speak up, let go, say “screw it”, simplify, amplify, cry… you’ll flourish. We need this.
I know you and I can’t see each other, and we’re not in the same room right now. But I want you to know with each video I create, my intention is that you feel and understand that you’re not alone. I want to create a community through this space - one that transcends space and time.
You wouldn’t be here, watching this if you were someone who didn’t understand me right now. You’re not here to live a life akin to the status quo - in fact I know you’ve at least questioned it - more than once.
We’re here to have fulfillment on top of success.
You’re no stranger to achieving.
And today I’m sharing a really common misinterpretation of common advice for “success” that people like you and I need to completely ignore. In fact, It’s dangerous to us!
Have you ever heard the phrase “You have to be willing to do what most people are unwilling to do in order to live a life that most people will never get to live?”
Well, it’s great advice.
And here’s why it’s dangerous, and What to do with this if you’re working hard and not seeing the traction you’ve been waiting for.
(Keep your eyes reeeeeally peeled for the Santa Monica Pier!)
Once you've watched, leave me a comment below. I want to know how you're going to assimilate this, today.
Stay Curious, stay open. The life you crave is so much closer than you think.
