When looking back at their lives, fully realized leaders can point to key milestones where they remained true to their deepest values in both the thrilling victories and the darkest defeats. Those choices—while frequently difficult—are the ones that defined them and contributed the most to their success. It is a picture of character forged in the crucible of pressure which delivers true satisfaction and meaningful accomplishment.
Contrast this with leaders who never realize their full potential. Whether they were unclear on their purpose, ignorant of their strengths, or confused about their values, their leadership is littered with unfinished accomplishments, unrealized dreams, and untapped potential. For some, this is a source of deep pain, slowly etched into their soul over many decades. For too many leaders, this is the default path, and that is tragic. Not for you, however. You were born for greatness, and you are meant to impact the world in a unique and powerful way.
Every great leader starts out unproven, untested, and unrecognized. Their internal struggle is marked with questions like:
- Do I have what it takes?
- What do I really want?
- Why can’t others see the power of my leadership?
- Why does everyone else have a plan for my life?
- How long must I “pay my dues” before I start getting ahead?
The challenge for you as a high impact leader is to navigate the chaos by making skilled choices. By discovering your life’s purpose now, you’ll set yourself on a course for maximum leadership impact. And there’s no better time than right now because the options before you will never be this open, this expansive, or this flexible.
While you can always start over, traveling for years in the wrong direction can mean that some opportunities are lost forever. For a leader with loads of future potential, today is the ideal time to answer the four most important questions about your future.
- What is my purpose?
- What are my strengths?
- What are my values?
- What is my plan?
