Top Rule On Leadership – Show up!
You’ll hear me say this all of the time. Everything rises and falls with leadership.
And if there was just one thing I could change in my adventure of life, it would be to take a leadership role a lot earlier than I did.
Leadership is truly the most amazing and beneficial skill you can develop in business and in life so it makes sense to start developing your leadership skills now.
One of the top rules of leadership is simply just “show up”.
What do I mean by that? Well, there are going to be times you don’t want to show up. There are going to be times you don’t want to get up early, stay up late, attend meetings, do trainings, etc.
There are going to be times in your life it’s going to be hard for you.
There were times it got so hard for me I literally would pull over on the side of the road and cry. I didn’t want to get out of bed. I couldn’t sleep at night. I’d stay awake until 5 AM.
Everything in me just wanted to shut off, just go into hiding. To take a sabbatical.
But those are the times you need to show up more than ever! And by doing that, you build that leadership muscle.
And even though it can very hard at times, I can tell you this with 100% certainty.
No matter how hard it is, the rewards are always a million times more worth it.
You may not be that great at it just yet. You might feel really awkward in a leadership role at first. You might not know exactly what to do.
But all you need to get right is the one action of continuing to show up!
And eventually, you’ll develop your leadership muscle so strong, you’ll become unstoppable.
