Follow a Leader One of the best ways to move forward in your life is to find someone who is doing and being what you envision yourself doing and being. Find a leader in the world that you respect and is living a life that you are wanting and follow them! Think of that person as your North Star. They will be the shining light in the dark as you move towards more transformation and success. The fact is that if they have achieved it, then you can too!
On your journey of transformation sometimes it can be a long lonely road, with not much guidance. One thing that can sabotage your success is the feeling that you are on your own and there is no one who has been down your particular road with your concerns and/or frustrations.
First of all, I want you to know that feeling is very common and secondly, (I will be as gentle as possible here…) it is wrong! Just kidding! But seriously, there are many people who have been successful at what you are working on transforming into, whether it is being the most amazing mother, to a Fortune 500 business owner or political leader and everything in between! There are people who have done it. Find them. Study them. Read about them if they have written an autobiography. Read interviews with them. Look at what that person is doing. Look at what kind of person they are. Look at the steps they took to get to where they are. Study them...
Of course your details will vary from theirs, but start moving in the direction they did. Something you may not know about me is that I am a trained actor. In my training, I was taught this kind of technique when creating a character. When I would play a character, I would look around the world or in my personal life for someone who the character seemed very much like. This is what I would call my characters "doppelgänger". I knew that once I found the right doppelgänger, I would have a sort of road map as to the inner and outer workings of this character, thus making it much easier to play. This really stopped searching in the dark for characteristics, motivations and physical attributes. That real life person gave me so much help and saved me so much time! Real life leaders can do the same thing for you on your journey towards an awesome life!
So find your doppelgänger and begin to think like them. Begin to try and see the world like they do. Begin to make decisions like them. Say to yourself "What would (Your Leader) do/say/think?" Then do, say and attempt to think a little or a lot more like them.
This will give you a way of moving towards where you want to go with a kind of template, because they have done it. They have been successful at it. They have accomplished it and YOU CAN TOO!
Say YES if today you will find and Follow a Leader in the world today!
