HOW are we getting it done?
Our WHY is our fuel to keep going. Our team can also feed off our WHY. Our WHY is extremely powerful for so many reasons… but our HOWs are just as important.
HOW are we realizing our WHY? HOW are we bringing our WHY to life?
Whenever we are stressed, it’s not because of the results or the outcome. We’re leaders! We aren’t concerned about the outcome as much as we are about the process and the lessons learned. Success and failure are irrelevant. As leaders, our fulfillment, our happiness, and our joy aren’t attached to the outcome.
If that’s true, then why do we still get stressed?
The answer to that question lies in our values. Whether we honor or betray our values will determine if we are stressed or fulfilled at any point of the process.
If our values were honored at every step, then the outcome cannot and will not stress us out. We are leaders, we can live with the outcome, BUT we cannot live with ourselves if we betrayed our values along the way… hence the stress.
Never sacrifice your values for the numbers. Choose to honor your values every step along the way.
We’ll get there. We’ll get it done. We’ve done it before and we’ll do it again. But this time, we’re letting our values lead the way.
