“It’s the Singer not the Song”

Over the weekend I was listening to music from the Great British philosopher – Mick Jagger of the Rolling Stones – and listened to this phrase in one of his songs…
It’s the Singer, Not the Song!”
I realized at that moment the parallel to individuals in today’s business environment. The fact is everyone knows the words and parrots them quickly and easily. Yet, few actually walk the talk of the leadership world. You see it takes discipline and persistence to do the right things as a leader in every situation. It’s the singer who makes the difference. I’m amazed everyday by the stories of selective ethics and out of control ego’s claiming to be real leaders. And worst, people are lining up to follow these people without thinking for themselves. What is really a great thing is you can take control our life, your business, your sales territory or any other leader position you currently hold – simply by realized you are the “singer” of your song. People who take self-responsibility and manage their highest priorities are the ones who win. Maybe not the first day, yet over time using focus and discipline a person can control their own destiny. My question to you is…
What Song are You Going to Sing? It is true you can control your own destiny and become the leader you want to be and others wish to follow. So, What Song will you be Singing?
Personal Leadership is the most important version of leadership. Position power is really an illusion when the position is not earned by performance and integrity. Real leaders show respect for every individual they interact with over time. Respect leads to Trust, which is the glue to getting things done. Take a moment to reflect upon yourself and ask if you are the lead singer of your song or have you joined a chorus of other voices each reading the words aloud – just because the words are available? Are you doing everything you can to make a difference in your world today? Separate yourself from the herd of people who are going through the motions within the focus and clarity a leader shows. And, if you are unsure, contact me and we can discuss how you can improve as a leader.
