“And so with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees, just as things grow in fast movies, I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer.” — F. Scott Fitzgerald
Personal leadership is a powerful way to expand what you’re capable, grow your greatness, and achieve great results in a more sustainable way.
Personal leadership puts a focus on self-awareness so you can lead yourself more effectively. Through self-awareness and playing to your personal strengths, you find more effective ways to use your mind, body, and emotions to achieve better results.
In The Inner Edge: The 10 Practices of Personal Leadership, Joelle K. Jay shares how personal leadership is a practical strategy for continuous renewal.
Maintain Your Excellence without Becoming Worn-Out
Through personal leadership you can achieve your goals without becoming jaded or burned out.
”You got where you are today by being good at what you do.
My guess is that you are energetic, committed, and sharp.
You apply yourself. You get involved. You set high goals and challenge yourself to exceed them.
But sustaining that level of excellence over long periods of time can be tough.
You need to be able to maintain your excellence without becoming jaded or worn-out.”
More Successful. Happier. Less Stressed.
With more pressure to perform, you need to use personal leadership skills to become more successful, happier, and less stressed.
“And that’s a challenge. You have more to do than ever before.
There’s more pressure to perform, and higher expectations to meet.
You feel like you are going as fast as you can, and you feel pressure to go even faster.
Running, running, running through every day, you feel as though you need to catch your breath — if you could only find a smarter way, if you could only find some shortcut to get where you need to go, maybe you’d be … What?
Get Better Results by Investing in Yourself and Aligning With Who You Truly Are
Personal leadership is a way to save time, reach your goals, and enjoy the journey along the way.
”There is another way. It’s a way that has you still succeeding, still achieving, and still leading the way toward the results you want.
But it does so in a way that comes easily and naturally. You save time, reach your goals, and enjoy yourself by taking an approach that is aligned with who you truly are.
You reach higher than you ever knew you could and expand your results.
You get a better return on your efforts, and you do it by investing in yourself.”
Accelerate Your Achievements and Exceed Your Own Expectations
Personal leadership helps you unlock and unleash what you are capable of. Beyond your wildest imagination.
“Then, you find out what’s really possible.
You will accelerate your achievements and exceed your own expectations.
You will amaze yourself with the results.
You will learn how to make the most of all you’ve been given and all that you’ve gained — to not just fulfill your potential but to blow past it, to not just learn but to be transformed, to not just grow but to be rewarded with the greatest possible return.”
Enhance the Quality of Your Life While Making Your Biggest, Most Powerful, Most Positive Impact
Personal leadership helps you renew what makes you come alive.
“Personal leadership is not just a conceptual idea. It is a practical strategy for continuously renewing yourself and your leadership so you can reach your greatest potential and make your biggest, most powerful, positive impact, all while enhancing your quality of life. You can be an effective leader who adds more value to the business, and yes, you can still be home in time for dinner.”
Personal leadership is all about leading a better life from the inside out.
If you want more on the outside, start on the inside.
Success is an inside job.
