I was with a group of friends last night and one person shared how when he assumed a new and BIG leadership position – he was thrilled and terrified at the same time. While he knew in his heart that he was capable – his head was sending a different message. Doubt, insecurity, and feeling intimidated by others pounded in his brain.
Yet he didn’t give up or stop. Instead, he reminded himself why this role was important to him and how it was incredibly crucial to his organization. My new friend completely won. That doesn’t mean that all of the negative thoughts don’t creep into his mind now and again, it just means that he doesn’t take when so seriously. In the process, he is building up his strength, capacity and a powerful winning streak.
I can’t wait to hear what’s next for him.
Success is wonderful and it is also a responsibility that we can rise to occasion to fulfill.
Have a great day,
