Leaders believe what they say and say what they believe. Therefore, their actions are in line with their values.
“I never had a policy; I have just tried to do my very best each and every day.” ~Abraham Lincoln
3 Question Reality Check
1. Do people you encounter know what you believe by what they see you do?
2. Are your actions saying good things or bad things about you?
3. Have you thought about how that could impact your business results?
“Dignity consists not in possessing honors, but in the consciousness that we deserve them.” ~Aristotle
FOOD FOR THOUGHT
If you want to be the “go-to” person in your area of expertise, act like you already are! Exude the confidence, adapt the ease in talking to strangers, be curious, ask questions, and most of all be yourself!
“Don’t try to be different. Just be good. To be good is different enough.” ~Arthur Freed
SO WHAT WILL YOU DO ABOUT IT?
If you are not where you’d like to be with how you are perceived in your community, make a simple choice: either act your way into a new way of thinking or think your way into a new way of acting. Pick one, and just do it! And if you need help with the choice, ask your coach. Don’t have one … GET ONE!
“Men are not prisoners of fate, but prisoners of their own minds.” ~Franklin D. Roosevelt
