Leadership Nuggets

"But among you it will be different. Whoever wants to be a leader among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first among you must become your slave." Jesus Christ (Matthew 20:26, 27 NLT)

#Life mission

6 June 2016

#Muhammad Ali died a few days ago. He was an inspiration to many people, for his determination to succeed, for standing for his beliefs and his stance against the Vietnam war. I wonder what he would say if he was hearing all the accolades that is still ongoing days after his death.

Have you ever wondered what people would say about you when you are dead? Imagine being at your own funeral and listening to what people are saying about you, what would you want to hear? How you impacted their lives positively or negatively? What change you made in your world?

Our #legacy becomes evident after we are gone. Those who impact lives positively are remembered for generations to come. Their works are told and retold to generations yet to be born.

What legacy do you want to leave behind. Will your footprint still be on the sands of time or will it be washed away with the tears of pain? You can start working on leaving a legacy that lasts forever.

My challenge to you this month of June is to write 3 to 5 things you would want to hear people say about you at your funeral. And turn it into your life mission.

You are welcome to share if you want.

#Leadership is an intentional lifestyle. Keep on being the leader you are created to be.

"I've made my share of mistakes along the way, but if I have changed even one life for the better, I haven't lived in vain." ~ Muhammad Ali

Be #Authentic
You were born with unique gifts and abilities. Your likes and dislikes make up who you are. Do not try to imitate someone else.

You can learn from other people but be you. Bring your own individuality to everything you do. What will set you apart as a #leader is what is inside of you. Be you. Be positively different. Be authentic.

My challenge for you this month is to list the #gifts, #talents, #skills and #abilities you have and identify what makes you different.

Your character tells a lot about who you are. People's experience of you is through your character. Character is defined as the mental and moral qualities distinctive to an individual. Your character guides how you respond to people or situations. Everyone has character. There are good and bad character.

A leader who will positively transform lives develop good character. Some examples of good character traits are: consistency, honesty, perseverance, discipline, positivity, credibility, humility and integrity to name a few.

In the month of April, my challenge to you is to seek feedback about your character from members of your family, close friends and colleagues. Ask them, on a scale of 1 (low) and 5 (highest), how would they rate you? Then be deliberate to work on those areas you scored less than 4.

Remember character makes a leader.
