If you are a community builder. looking for help in how to overcome limiting beliefs, use your gifts with confidence, and caring for yourself while leading people, this episode is for you!
[00:53] Recently you had a conversation from a client and friend who said “Michelle if you want to unleash other women you need to get unleashed yourself.” That was a great story of how in order to serve others we have to be willing to lead by example.
When we step out in faith and pursue our purpose, our ability to impact and help others increases. You help women, as you said, discover define and design their purpose and for many women, a part of their purpose includes serving others.
I believe leadership is how we choose to show up and serve others regardless of what our title is or how many people we can impact or serve. Leaders are people who are helping others grow and move from point A to point B.
Yet sometimes as women, we shy away from stepping up to lead or taking charge when it’s outside of our comfort zone
So my question you being a dream architect, why do you think that we tend to shy away from stepping up to lead even when we know what our purpose is?We see that people are so-called winning based on what they curate. – Michelle, Dreams Unleashed #womenwhoexcel Click To Tweet
