Do you think of yourself as a leader?  Do you enjoy leading?  As you were growing up, did people tell you that you had natural leadership qualities?

If you don't see yourself as a leader, know that you are leading and probably don't even know it.  Why?  Because we are all leaders simply because of our influence.  Whatever you believe, think, value, feel, or say influences your behavior. These are all the result of your mindset, and your mindset affects the impact you have.

This attitude determines much of our behavior and our behavior produces specific results.  Are we getting the results or having the impact we want or are we experiencing unwanted results and outcomes?  By looking at the relationship between our mindset, our behavior, and our impact we can integrate all three components in an effective and satisfying way.  We can incorporate leadership qualities and engage in leadership behaviors that generate the results we really want.

Your impact may be subtle or it may be profound; it may be small or it may be big.  Observe your impact as it is reflected back to you and observe your mindset as it fills your thoughts, shapes your attitudes, and changes the world around you.
