We Dont Need Self Impovment, We Need Self Leadership
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

I know that many people have always struggled with the idea of self-help. It always points to the fact that we aren't quite where we need to be, or that we are missing something in our potential to recieve the good we desire. Truly I think a more appropriate title would be self leadership. It is our ability to lead our lives that determines what we get from it. I have a little secret for you. There is not magic potion for success.

All you need is to learn how to be the leader of your own life. Most people are controlled, and fall into a slavery of their own negative programming. The master of their life is past failures, and what their families told them growing up. Many people never even stop to reflect on if any of that is actually true.

Successful people are not born that way. We all come into this world, naked, with no teeth, and most of are scared out of our damn minds. All we see is bright lights, and some guy wearing something we have never seen before (a doctors scrubs), then he flips us towards the floor and smacks our butt. We don't know if our family is rich or poor, whether dad is a drug addict or a computer scientist.

What determines our success in life has everything to do with how well we learn to lead our emotions, our thoughts, and our actions day to day. What we have been conditioned to believe, and whether we can lead ourselves to be successful in life. When it is 5am in the morning and no one else is up, can you get yourself to the gym? When you have a huge project due, can you tell your friends "not tonight", so you can finish? If you can't yet that is fine, but are you willing to learn how to lead your own life independant of the approval of others?

Learning to be a person of self leadership is a fun road, but it can be difficult at times. Giving 100% effort even when no one else is watching, and no one would judge. The process of self leadership is an ongoing school that never gets out until the day you die. If you don't learn to lead yourself down the path of your choosing, someone else will lead you down the path that they chose for you.

The first step to self leadership, and the most important step on the Journey is simple, but it isn't easy. You have to figure out what your heart wants for your life. What is your path, and what do you truly want out of the five main areas of life. Relational, Spiritual, Financial, Physical, and Intellectual. Take some time today to just sit quietly and ask yourself, "what do I really want out of my life." Then show the first step in the leadership process, and start aquiring the information and getting involved with the life that you truly love.
