Improvement for this discussion isn’t necessarily a big house, more money, a job promotion, or other material goods. Success here is defined as being well–being more of who you are authentically called to be and become; and less of who we aren’t supposed to be.
Being you can’t be delegated. You’re the only person with your job description, your calling. Personal growth is a matter of personal leadership and personal leadership rests upon personal responsibility.
Most of us make the decision to be better frequently. We taste our share of accomplishment and achievement but something’s still not satisfying to our soul. What’s missing?
A decision alone is insufficient. Our high and nobles intentions are too susceptible to the urgency and busyness of life competing for our attention. In other words, one step forward and two steps backwards. Repeat it enough times and we can get caught in a downward cycle of negative self-talk, blame and loss of personal confidence… even in the midst of professional achievement.
Achievement is something you’re probably used to, but accomplishments can often leave us more empty than when we began. In fact, the more “successful” we become, the more we risk being out of personal integrity and discovered for who we aren’t really. Fear of exposure grabs us and we start living life small and dull instead of bold and vibrant.
Fulfillment, meaning and peace in one’s state of being provides true joy. But few of have been trained in the personal leadership skills necessary for the inward journey necessary to make the outward passage truly rewarding and fully integrated.
The best and most predictable means to well-being starts with a decision, continues with a system, and is refined with a coach or mentor. Then the process is repeated again… and again… and again.
