11 Things Good Leaders Let Go Of

As I started preparing for the day, I read this statement:I let go of anything and everything that could delay my good in any way. Hmmm…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 the above statement, we need to ask ourselves, “What gets in the way that could cause delay of achieving your vision?” In other words, what no longer serves you?We discuss this topic a lot with our 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 leadership 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. This 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’d love to know your leadership thoughts below. What gets in your way, delaying your good, or your vision?All my best,Maria
