11 Area Of Delay That Detour Your Leadership Goals

I saw this statement the other day, “I let go of anything and everything that could delay my good in any way.” By Louise HayHmmm… Of course, as I so often do, I contemplated how this might apply to leadership.Leadership is the action that motivates people toward a vision. Therefore, if the vision is the “good” in this statement, we need to ask ourselves, “What gets in the way that could cause delay of achieving my vision?” In other words, what no longer serves us?I discuss this topic a lot with my clients. It is a great exercise to stop and check-in with yourself regularly, asking, “What no longer serves me?”Some possible delays to our good or vision may include:

  • Underlying beliefs that no longer serve us
  • Ego
  • Clutter (literal and physical)
  • The need to be right
  • Noise (literal and physical)
  • Fear
  • Poor health
  • Lack of sleep
  • Lack of knowledge
  • Lack of anything…
  • Toxic relationships

Once you’ve identified what gets in your way of achieving your good or your vision, it is time to let it, or them, go. Time to move into action, ridding yourself of anything and everything that gets in your way.Brian Tracy, in his book, “Eat That Frog!” offers some great suggestions for getting out of the procrastination habit.Mark Twain was the inspiration for the book title and overall premise of getting procrastination out of the way. Mark Twain said that if the first thing you do each morning is to eat a live frog, you go to through you day with the satisfaction of knowing that is probably the worst thing that would happen to you all day long.So eat your frog and know that it is the time to start exercising your backbone instead of your wishbone. You are the architect of your life, the author of your book. This is not a dress rehearsal. If you don’t like what you see…change it!I want to hear from you. What is your favorite strategy you use to work through delays and detours? How do you eat your frog?With love,Maria
