Your Purpose as a Leader

You’re a leader. You are brilliant. You are gifted.

You are here for a unique reason – you have a purpose.

So, you ask, “What is my purpose as a leader?”

You say, “I want a meaningful life – I want a life that matters.”

You can start “meaningful” right here – right now.

Today your purpose is to mentor, motivate and lead your team – with an attitude of excellence.

Know that you are the person who has been called to do this work.

How do you know you have been called?

Because you are doing it, that is how.

You are a leader. You have a job; you have responsibility.

You are trusted by others to make a contribution – no matter your title. It is all on you.

Choose to do your work with an attitude that says, “This work matters. I am serving my team.”

Start by serving the person in front of you. When you serve one, you serve all. You have impact.

See your work as your contribution – to those on your team, and others who you develop as leaders.

Be the example, inspire people with your attitude and your actions.

I challenge you: take it up a notch today – get your most important work done with excellence.

Do it with a feeling of gratitude that you get to do the work.

Say to yourself, “What I do matters. I am calm as I focus on getting this done now.”

This will shift how you feel, and it will be easier to create at a higher level – which will upscale your results.

This small difference over time compounds your impact. It improves your development and leadership.

Excellence = an empowered life; you become the best version of yourself – as a leader and contributor.

Focus on what is in front of you with creativity, joy and an intention to do your best – and be your best.

Your Purpose is being the best version of yourself.
