I received maybe the coolest email ever from one of my Client/Comrades. He had read a post on Seth Godin’s blog and said it made him think of me … which I took as a huge compliment.
He then said …
“As you are creating your 2009 plan, remember that we look to you to put us in the mood. Write us a great love song so that we all want to go find the future we deserve and make out with it.”
I thought about this for days and decided to just sit down and write about it. And I must say this message has challenged me as I continue to think strategically about this year. My comrade in spirit has vividly reminded me how people depend on me – “… to put us in the mood.”
In the Mood
How ought I translate this? Another spiritual friend has been encouraging me to, more and more, bring my own voice into my work and writing. It is only fitting in this piece to declare my ‘voice’ – Love. Simply put, for anything I do to have its full meaning, love must be present. I love what I do and I love those I do it for. So to put them ‘in the mood’ I must first nurture my own Desire & Intent.
A Confident Leader’s Love Song
What is your message of love? Please don’t be ashamed of this message. It’s in you, and to be fulfilled as a leader, it needs to be expressed. Your love song is your Desire & Intent for those you lead and influence. Tell them. Sing your song confidently and consistently.
The future you deserve is planted in the best of who you are – allowing you to move others to be their best.
