What Does it Mean to Activate Your Greatness?
If you are a great Leader you define motivation for yourself, and help others, by understanding...
- What types of environments motivate you,
- What specifically stresses you out,
- How you most bring value to organizations,
- How you may be perceived by others,
- How you like to be managed,
- What gives you energy,
- And what depletes you.
If you know these things, you are Activating Your Greatness, and
with this knowledge it is much easier to define motivation in your life.
"Hide not your talents, they for were made. What's a sundial in the shade?"
You will find that once you've mastered this Habit:
- You will no longer negatively compare yourself to others. (This always takes you
'Out of the Zone')
- On the flip-side, you'll find it easier to reduce judgement, tension and resistance you have had around others differences.
"Never compare your insides with someone else's outsides."
