Hey there, this is Coach Jordan, and I'm excited to dive into a topic that lies at the core of personal development and success – self-leadership. Today, I want to introduce you to one of my all-time favorite coaching questions: "How well are you leading yourself?" This question isn't just a fleeting thought; it's a profound inquiry that can reshape the way you approach success, relationships, and personal growth. So, let's embark on a journey of self-discovery and learn how to master the art of self-leadership.

The Foundation of Success

Imagine success as a magnificent building soaring towards the sky. What's its foundation made of? It's not steel or concrete; it's self-leadership. This crucial concept forms the bedrock upon which all accomplishments rest. The success that endures, the kind that becomes woven into the fabric of your life, stems from how effectively you lead yourself. Not the fleeting triumphs that come and go, but the lasting victories that become a part of who you are.

Reflecting Relationships Through Self-Leadership

Have you ever noticed that the relationships you attract seem to mirror your inner self? This is no coincidence. Your relationships are a reflection of your self-leadership and the commitment you hold to personal growth. When you lead yourself effectively, you become a magnet for positivity, respect, and genuine connections. Your self-leadership radiates, and the world responds in kind.

The Keys to Self-Leadership

  1. Personal Promise Keeping: Your self-worth is intricately linked to your ability to keep promises to yourself. Think about it – the opinion you hold of yourself is shaped by your track record of honoring your commitments. Identify the promises you repeatedly make and break, and work on building consistency. The more reliable you become to yourself, the stronger your self-leadership foundation.

  2. The Singular Promise: Imagine there's one promise, one commitment, that has the power to set off a domino effect of positive change in your life. What is it? Identify that promise, the one that, if fulfilled, could revolutionize your life in the next three to six months. This promise becomes your North Star, guiding you towards lasting transformation.

  3. Decisions, Not Just Choices: Making decisions is an art. Choices are about options, but decisions are about selections. Navigating life's menu of possibilities requires deliberate decision-making. To become a master of self-leadership, train yourself to make the right decisions – those that align with your values and goals. Ask yourself, "What would the hero version of myself choose?" and use this question to string together a chain of empowering decisions.

Becoming Your Hero

Imagine yourself as the hero of your life's movie. You're faced with choices and options, and in each moment, you have the power to decide your next step. The hero within you knows what's best for your journey. Ask yourself, "What would the hero version of me do right now?" This question becomes your guiding light, illuminating the path towards self-leadership mastery.


Thank you for joining me in this exploration of self-leadership. Leading yourself effectively isn't just a theoretical concept – it's the cornerstone of your enduring success and fulfillment. By focusing on personal promise keeping, identifying the pivotal promise, making empowered decisions, and channeling your inner hero, you'll embark on a transformative journey towards lasting positive change.

Remember, your self-leadership isn't just about personal growth; it's a beacon that draws in meaningful relationships and enduring accomplishments. Keep nurturing your self-leadership, and watch as your life transforms into a masterpiece of your own creation. Until next time, take care and continue leading yourself towards greatness. Bye-bye!
