Deep breath, clear mind, let's power ahead into our second trait…
Leadership 199 / Trait 2 of 14: Bearing
Defined: Creating a favorable impression in carriage, appearance and personal conduct at all times.
Discovered: Conduct, personal-conduct, is a noun in that sentence. Mrs. English, yes I really had an English teacher named Mrs. English, well she would not approve of this but I choose to see 'conduct' as a verb here. And if noun-abuse is not to be tolerated, then I offer another sentence...
Bearing is the manner in which you conduct yourself.
Just how do you behave in your mission to get healthy? Do you go through the motions of whatever program you are following while longingly looking forward to being done with what you are doing?
Be honest! If you answered 'Yes' to that follow-up question and that is how you conduct yourself some of most of the time, well then allow me this moment of boldness to say that your bearing is OFF.
You cannot lead effectively just going through the motions!
Leadership with bearing is to...
- Arrive Alert in the face of your challenges & with Desire for the results you deserve.
- Stand Competent & Confident, that you have what it takes to succeed.
- Conduct yourself so that you Control the motion that is your life.
Is your bearing up to the challenges you face?
