Have you ever committed to making a change – and then slid back into the same routine as before? 

You may have found yourself feeling stuck in the rut of an old pattern or habit, and don’t feel as if you have the motivation or desire to create the new results you want. 

While you can see the outcome or desired end result in your mind, you question what steps to take or in what order. 

From there, you may stop believing in yourself and in your goals or what you feel called to do, especially if you’re trying to do it by yourself. 

At Design Your Destiny Live, we dive into the 7 Pillars of Leadership and how to personally apply them with ease. 

Because there are 80+ leaders in the room, a community is formed. This collective of shared perspectives and ideas allows you to create the outline to make effective changes in your personal and professional life. 

The 1st pillar is to Start with a Written Plan, beginning with the end in mind. 

People who have a plan are 90% more likely to be successful. 

While it may seem cliché, it is the starting point that then allows change to happen with ease. 

Too often I’ve heard people say, “I feel stuck. How do I figure out my next steps or my mission and calling?” They realize that where they are standing is not fulfilling their life purpose. 

Many times it is because they’ve spent their life taking care of other people and putting their own needs to the side. 

Or, they want change from a place of wanting to be an even better leader. 

In my group coaching programs, you get to collaborate in a smaller container of successful women who have a leadership plan of action. 

After you’ve got the plan, it’s time to examine how your own personality and behavioral style will weaken or strengthen your plan by applying Pillar #2 is Understand Your Personality. 

Together, I dive with you into your DiSC style and look at ways you can use what comes naturally to you so you can show up as an emotionally intelligent, confident leader. 

From there we examine pillar #3, Build Powerful Partnerships, so that you understand how to create and engage with sponsors and allies in your business and career path. 

All of this is designed for you to lead with courage and confidence. 

When you’re trying to go it alone, it’s easy to slide back into the same routine and fail to move forward. 

It’s like the African proverb reminds us, “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” 

ACTION: The Upside Challenge of the week is to examine where you’re experiencing some “stuckness.” Do you have a plan? Are you utilizing your strengths? Do you have one-on-one guidance and different perspectives available to you? The world needs you and your brilliance.
