There’s a trend today about talking about leading others in a gentle way rather than the post era business leadership of demands, and directives. Many business cultures are taking the stance that when you lead you should be leaving things better. Our mark on the world whether in our careers or lives can benefit from becoming better natural environmentalists.
“Our presence always leaves a mark. Let that mark be one that nurtures and builds other people.”
~Debra Arko Novotny
Leaving Things Better
I’m convinced, humans are natural builders. We want to create. For centuries we’ve found ways to leave our footprint on the planet to the extent that we’re all familiar with the urging to take a different approach and nurture our planet and its resources by leaving things better than we found them. We apply the term environmentalists to folks that take on this task. This same principle of leaving things better should apply to all of humanity.
Ernest Holmes, a New Thought leader, wrote, “We always welcome the man who looks at the world as his friend and loves it.”
He was referring to everything in and on the planet including other people. Leading others well is the person who looks at the world and sees everyone as his or her friend and loves them in some way. In a work environment or a political climate, this can be hard; it also can be misleading. I’m not referring to the ‘free love’ movement of the 1960’s rather leading others with an open heart even in the most trying times.
We have within us a creative teacher or guide. Before you decide to hold a meeting or hand out new projects, listen with your heart, not your head about how to do this.
Use the Law Of Increase
This is difficult in some business environments. If you’re going into a meeting where you must deliver ill news or face opposition; try these two steps.
Know that what you do grows. This is the law of increase; if you are upset, the tension rises in you and others. If you deal with something with kindness the energy of the situation doesn’t degrade as much and might turn into a good experience.
You are only responsible for your output. If you’re at home, and there’s joy look at how you are relating to your personal life. When I was younger things bothered me more. It was an age thing it was a learning thing. There is no age that you know to let go of things outside of you because you aren’t in control of them it is a learned skill. Again you’re using the law of increase.
When I work with new coaching clients in one of my e-courses, we always focus on this principle even in my Lose Weight For Good program. If you want to use this principle for weight, remember that you must increase your positive thinking about your body image. There are other ways we utilize The Law of Increase in health and weight that we discuss more in the e-courses.
Empowering Women is a passion of mine. Often we think that we’re not worthy or enough. Using this principle to develop confidence along with special coaching techniques has helped many women increase the incomes, their love life, and enhance their world.
