Ladies Lead The Right Space!
Knowledge is power. And there is no greater power than spiritual insight because…. it is the understanding of who we are… and where our true power lies.
I’ve spent over 20 years leading and sharing about career success, an area where “power” is typically defined by external factors such as authority, money, and influence – and while there’s no question these are all forms of power, the problem is that we often confuse them for our source of power.
In my book Leading From The Front; we learn that our true Source is not outside of us, but is a changeless energy of perfect love that is – and has always been – in us and all around us. In my book I share the true foundation of leading and the power is centered in the things that we love!
How do you experience Love in your career? The Passion in all areas of your life?
It is to get to the root of what brews the wall of division in the first place– to free your thinking of all that blocks it, which the wall called ego. A great book of wisdom I often read and refer back to reminds me that "A haughty spirit shall fall. And while this may sound familiar to you from a spiritual perspective, what’s not so obvious is how the lessons we learn on a spiritual path are not only part of our success at work, but essential to it.
As an example, when you choose to embody the presence of love as your career– what you come to recognize is that “Love” isn’t running around the office being naive, inappropriately affectionate, or having no boundaries.
Rather, you discover is that Love is simply bringing your own thinking in alignment with the energy of grace and forgiveness, or taking what the Course calls the “journey without distance” from the head to the heart.
This practice is important to maintain your own peace and composure, but it’s especially helpful in leadership roles because leadership is about influence – and you can’t influence anyone who consciously or subconsciously feels your judgment on them. When we fail to become conscious of our own biases this can lead us to that wall between us and success called 'EGO"
This is also why your most important job, regardless of what your business card says, is a moment-by moment return to the light in your mind that shines away the darkness of the ego.
