“Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like 
a wise man who built his house on the rock.
Matthew 7:24

Where does leadership start?

Leadership Starts Today. What you do today determines the leadership behaviors of tomorrow. What you think about and who you spend time with today form the foundation of your future leadership acts and decisions.

Today Counts. I don’t think leadership is an instinct or a reaction by and of itself. I do not believe it is necessarily a habit either. I do believe instinctive reactions and habits are the outcomes of thoughtful or thoughtless decisions we make in our past.

Confidence. It’s not all you need but you can’t get much done without it. How do you grow in confidence? By keeping the promises you make to yourself. If need be, make small promises and then keep them. What positive changes do you need to make? What new habits should you establish? Start small but big enough to feel good about following through.

Think About it. If you are not proud of some of your reactions and behaviors, remember they are a product of your past. You can change. Change by starting today. Start by identifying what you want to do. Break it down into small steps. Make the promise to take the step. Do it and your confidence will grow. Winning like losing is contagious.
