The manner in which each of us travel through our lives is in large part a reflection of our beliefs. And in the end, our lives will have been defined by those beliefs. Most of which are the beliefs about yourself. Sadly, few of us can succinctly and confidently state who they are and what their purpose is. Try it. Who are you in all situations? What is your purpose, why do you exist?
Easy questions. Difficult answers.
One of my beliefs about leadership is that in order to lead many and earn followership, you must first lead yourself. And if you intend to lead your own life, you had better know yourself. I spent the better part of a year asking myself these questions and contemplating the answers. So for you to know my purpose, strengths, and core values, is to truly know me. Additionally, I believe that when I am my most true self and living my purpose while leveraging my strengths, I will accomplish the most with the least amount of effort.
