Whatever a great man does, the world follows.  Whatever standards he sets, the world pursues – Bhagavad Gita

Leadership is about committing to a goal/vision and lead others by own example. To explain it in simple terms – they practice what they preach.
leadership mindset life coaching mindfulness intelligenceLeadership is not necessarily a role.
Whether leaders are consciously aware or unaware, everyone is closely watching their actions. Therefore, leaders should be mindful of not leading others from the state of unconscious reactive but from the conscious active state.
A brave leader doesn’t fear change.
Through real change makes people feel vulnerable, in the long run, it makes them feel comfortable about who they really are and lead.
A good leader strives to create steadiness and normally stay balanced.
One of the key qualities of a leader is to develop a balanced approach when it comes to dualities of life.
Examples include happiness and sorrow, good and bad, heat and cold, fame and infamy, etc.
Though life presents both pleasant and unpleasant situations, a leader should be willing to learn how to tolerate and stay detached to both positive and negative outcomes.
Developing a sense of calmness during difficult situations requires internal strength & clarity that can be developed through mindfulness and spiritual practices.
True leaders create more leaders! Though we are living in an age that promotes individualism, we all need help and support to accomplish great things in life. Nurturing others while traveling our own journey helps to create a new generation of leaders with giving and accepting mindset. This way we can potentially avoid breeding selfishness mindset for the next generation. One good example is Mother Nature that offers us so many things for free without expecting anything in return.

Leadership requires plenty of “internal’ work. To lead, whether it be a small or big project, it is important to understand our nature and motives first. According to Eastern wisdom, humans have three types of nature namely: (a) Goodness – the quality of peace, purity, and harmony; (b) Passion – the quality of being driven and (c) Ignorance – the quality of sluggishness and inertia. Throughout our lives, we go through and experience all three modes of nature although the proportions differ based on each individual’s psychological and genetic makeup. Once we identify our nature, it becomes easy to choose a leadership style that aligns with our inherent nature without going through any internal conflict.
We do understand reading from the lives of great leaders how they were introspective about their own motives and existence. On that note, it is important for current leaders and emerging leaders to dig a little bit deeper and ask the question of why they have taken a leadership role. This may further lead us to some of the fundamental questions of life: Who am I? What is my purpose? Why am I here? By making these inquiries one can determine whether they are leading others through conscious decisions.
