The new-found confidence that is yours from the exercise of personal leadership attracts other people. Understanding and empathy are tools that enable you to motivate others to search for their own potential and to achieve success for themselves. Just as you have learned, those whose lives you touch will also learn that the only genuine understanding is self-understanding; the only true peace is internal peace; the only meaningful
motivation is self-motivation based on an attitude of positive expectancy and the conviction that we all possess
We live in a world of abundance – a world that was created for us and filled with a wealth of resources that we may use to fulfill our needs and satisfy our desires. The abundance in the physical world is mirrored in the abundance of human potential within each individual. Much attention is given to the tragedy of wasted natural resources, and rightfully so. Even more tragic, however, is the waste that occurs when people fail to use their full potential.
Recognize the wealth of untapped potential that lies
Within you and you will begin to marvel at its abundance.
When you are successful, you draw vitality and strength
from the abundance of opportunity that surrounds you.
By setting progressively higher goals, you maintain the necessary momentum to keep yourself on a constant course of personal leadership. The practice of goal setting is intended to be a lifelong pattern. The goal setter, like all winners, is marked by the determination. A winner never quits.
Tap Into Your Creative Side
The crowning trait of personal leadership is creativity. Creativity is an even finer art than pure inventive genius. It is a conceptual skill, the willingness to innovate, to try the untried, and to see the usual in unusual ways, and to relate the normally unrelated.
Creativity abounds when your attitudes are uninhibited by conditioning and convention. Creativity allows you to face a changing world and an uncertain future without fear. You are competitive. You are comparatively at ease in unstructured situations and unperturbed even when conditions around you are out of control. You are never awed by mystery. You are a good person to have around during a crisis.
As a creative person, you can listen to others with understanding – not only for facts, but to absorb the emotional overtones of what is said. You evaluate what you hear with calmness and self-confidence; you trust your competence to decide when it is time to act.
Creativity operates not as a flash of light, but as the logical result of your ability to restructure previously unrelated bits of information. You investigate new relationships between facts ignoring “the way it has always been done.” Creativity builds on a strong, mature personality and is expressed through self-respect, self-confidence and positive expectancy. It is the natural outgrowth of personal leadership.
