Leadership Minute: Proving Grounds

prove

Humility and inner peace go hand in hand. The less compelled you are to try to prove yourself to others, the easier it is to feel peaceful inside. – Richard Carlson

While it is understandable that leaders want the approval and acceptance of others it can be an unhealthy compulsion if not careful. As a leader, when you serve out of humility and less out of a need for approval you will take care of any ‘proving’ needs you may have. Don’t allow yourself to fall into the trap of believing that you have to prove yourself to anyone. Be the best version of you that you were created to be and live your life peacefully.
