Successful leaders share a number of perspectives and beliefs. Those beliefs shape their thoughts on how to lead a successful life. Their success is empowered by these beliefs because it produced positive results for their life’s purpose.
Tony Robbins, the personal development author and motivational speaker says that “if your beliefs don’t support your outcome, you have to throw them and start something new.”
All successful leaders share a sense of optimism toward their purpose. They believe in the power of possibilities in every situation even when things seem challenging and very negative. They find ways to stay resilient and turn negative experiences into a positive one.
That’s what leaders do. They don’t find any empowerment in being the victim of any situation.
“Every adversity, every failure, every heartache carries with it the seed on an equal or greater benefit.” – Napoleon Hill
It takes a lot of courage and optimism to learn from mistakes, overcome personal pains and overcoming a challenging situation. But great leaders know there is hope in every seed of difficulty. They turn the page.
The successful leaders in our world, are the people who saw possibilities. People who were thrown into the desert but saw a garden.
If you see a possibility, you see faith in the outcome.
“If you embrace possibility thinking, your dreams will go from molehill to mountain size, and because you believe in possibilities, you put yourself in a position to achieve them.” John C Maxwell.
Successful leaders also see the possibilities in other people not just situations. They tend to think of people as an opportunity to explore how to serve and add value to their potential. They look at people as if they had an invisible sign on their head that says, “You are a 10” and I can work with you.
Successful leaders focus on the possibilities of a better world through the positive power of the people they are with. It’s not personal power but collective power.
Successful leaders work at being successful. They take risks every day. It takes courage to take action without knowing the outcome. Courage is focused on possibilities and faith in others.
The only risk you are not taking is the one you decide not to take at all. Having a mindset that is future focused on “what could be if?” instead of “Why it won’t work,’ is an empowering shift.
Being a leader who is focused on possibilities, sends a clear message to the people you lead. It tells them that you are a solution oriented person who believes in the opportunities that lie ahead even in the most challenging situation.
