“You’ve got to be sure of yourself before you can ever win a prize” – Napoleon Hill, author of  Think and Grow Rich

What does it mean to be “sure of yourself?”

On the surface, it may sound like Napoleon Hill is talking about confidence, but I believe it goes much deeper than that.

As leaders, we do our best work when we know who we are, and what we are truly capable of accomplishing. Having confidence is a start, but there is a distinct difference between feeling confident, and having a calm, centered, certainty about us in our work.

True certainty comes when we combine confidence AND clarity.

When we lead our organizations (or ourselves), it’s important to always check in with that “big picture” of what we’re aiming for, WHY we are aiming for it, and why we feel passionate about it.

I believe that’s what Napoleon Hill meant by “win a prize.” When we feel that sense of certainty and fulfillment in our work as a leader, we really come alive!

When we connect emotionally to who we are, what we want, and WHY, we create even more impact, and naturally inspire people to follow our lead. Our energy instantly becomes more magnetic, and our calm, centered certainty spreads through our team.

Recently, many of you completed my survey where I asked you to share your ideas, challenges, and preferred methods of learning. When reading the results, I experienced my “prize,” as I got excited knowing all of the ways I can aim to add value to your lives in the future.

What’s most exciting is that a majority of your responses indicated that you like learning in groups of like minded people. I can’t wait to share with you what’s coming in the future. I am certain that when we grow and learn together, we can lift each other up even higher.

To your success,
