What is Personal Leadership?
Have you ever wondered why, despite all your hard work and despite all your achievements, you still feel far from that life you were dreaming of? Are you wondering why despite following what parents, employers, media and our culture tell and advise us to do, you never seem to be truly happy and fulfilled for long?
The answer is both simple and powerful. There is no one-size-fits-all approach to meaning, fulfilment and happiness. Until we consciously tailor our life path to align with what matters most to us, we follow others’ recipes or commercially driven one-size-fits all approaches. What we need instead is a truly Personalised Compass to the unique life path that is best for us, that is aligned with our own deepest values and our own unique definition of what constitutes life success.
Naturally this will differ from person to person. Committing to taking this personalised route to life requires a commitment to Personal Leadership, a personality-tailored approach to leading fulfilling and meaningful lives from the inside out that will set you free. This approach will not just save you a lot of pain and frustration on the way, it will also guide you in every decision and make you enjoy the journey of life. Personal Leaders are rewarded by enjoying their SilkeyWay of life, the authentic life path that is guaranteed to bring you joy and fulfilment.
After all there is nothing more tragic than only realising at the end of your life that the ladder you have been so busy climbing all your life was leaning against the wrong wall.
I define Personal Leadership as
Pro-actively and consciously choosing to lead life on your own terms in alignment with your personal values thereby creating deeply meaningful experiences; effectively drawing on the clarity and power of inner knowing and the resilient mind agility to grow, connect and create results even in uncertainty while taking full responsibility for your actions (or lack thereof) and the beautiful life you are creating.
In essence, becoming a Personal Leaders is about becoming a proud and confident pilot of your own most fulfilling life, a life aligned with what matters most to you. Self-awareness and pro-active value-aligned forward movement are two core strands running through the life of Personal Leaders.
