Lets Be Honest Before We Start Pretending

Oct 5, 2020

Today we are looking at “Leader’s Don’t Wait” from another lens.  And this lens is called “surrender”.  And that may seem the opposite of what we think “Leader’s Don’t Wait” sounds like in our heads, so let’s explore that a bit.  What does it mean to surrender?


We’ve talked before that we get to choose what success means to us, we are free to choose our experiences in our life, and what supports that is the freedom to choose an attitude that supports us.  And sometimes it is about surrender.  And surrender means to let go essentially, to accept what is so (think of the circumstances in your life).  This does not mean that I am letting my circumstances lead and drive my life, rather surrender is accepting what is so and making choices to support us in moving through them.


It could have to do with supporting your mental, emotional, and physical health and trusting your natural knowing that “something has got to give” and choose YOU.  When we surrender to what is so, we can remain neutral (and what that means is we may not like it, but we can address it, we can look objectively at it, we can be in ownership and accountable for it.  From there we can clearly make choices that support our purpose and vision for our life in that moment.


Often, we are going 100 miles per hour, we don’t stop or pause to reflect on what we need right now, to be the best version of our self so that we can be in service to our self (and that is not selfish by the way) everyone say that with me right now, taking care of me is not selfish!  Because when we do take care of our self, then we can serve others. Trust your knowing.


In this week’s podcast we will hear from Mindy Kay who I’ve known for many years. I met her in a leadership training I was facilitating and coaching, watched her step into being a certified coach, and have had the absolute pleasure of being a coach for her as she served on many leadership teams.  She has a giant heart, loves to serve and is a great coach.  She will share her story with all of you by trusting her knowing, surrendering, and what she is creating.
