Two years ago I spent a lot of time judging others on IG, saying things like: If I had ______ I could do that too. Must be nice to have _______. If I had people giving me _______ I have tons of followers too. Insert whatever you want in the blanks. I used to let the words “not fair” and my frustration about what I didn’t have access to, be my excuse for not doing anything. I used to remind myself that- I have no degree, no design license, no savings, no portfolio, no money to invest in myself, no expendable income, no child care, no free time, lots of debt, anxiety, worry and no fall back plan. Looked at others who seemed to “have it all” and feel jealousy and judgement and look at my circumstances and feel pity. When I stopped focusing on what I did not have, and started focusing on what I did have. Stopped feeling worried about how to get by, and starting planning for how to improve our circumstance. When I stopped focusing on why I was jealous of others and instead started learning from them... When I got out of my way, things changed. I was not a victim of my circumstance, I was a prisoner to my self pity. I run a business now, still no degree, no license and no portfolio... and yet I run a successful business. I have since been called names and belittled for calling myself successful- as if I needed to be put in my place for daring to say aloud I have seen success. When these comments happen I have to wonder, based on my own past, if those people who belittle me are currently where I used to be. Angry, frustrated or even jealous. Stuck thinking- of course you’re successful you have money and access and help and and and.... ignoring the real truth that I started with nothing except a lot of determination and faith in myself. Though these sorts of comments are cruel, they don’t get me down because I know they’re aimed at the girl who “has it easy”, because the commenter doesn’t know the girl who “works really hard” and doesn’t want to. That has nothing to do with me.
A quote I have lived by the last couple years is- “Luck is when hard work and preparation meet opportunity”. All I can do it work hard and be ready when opportunity knocks. So can you.
Leadership isn’t about sitting in a big chair or occupying a corner office with a fancy view, it’s about aligning company interests with a clear vision and providing an environment that encourages excellence. Don’t let the term excellence fool you, by that, we mean a working environment where ideas are explored, individual and organisational growth cheered, high levels of stakeholder satisfaction enjoyed and accountability and empowerment celebrated. Leadership is about instilling confidence not only in others but in the organisation and its direction. Great leaders inspire employees to come on the journey with them—that’s what leadership is about. .
