YES! It can feel lonely at the top.

Is this a bad thing? 

Maybe not…

I heard John Maxwell speak this past week. What a GREAT conversation!!! Well, {He was talking and I was listening, ha ha!!!} I’m so impressed with what value he brings to the world and he has written 88 books. What?

Just wow.

He said something that stopped me in my tracks. 

“Good leaders naturally feel lonely.”

What? 

I know during my journey of growing my coaching practice, that I have felt lonely at times…

John Maxwell explained that when we are invested in our personal development, growing a team, serving at a high level as an expert advisor, we SHOULD be ahead of the group. Because, we’re leading. And so… it is natural that there are times when ‘feeling alone’ is just part of it.

I thought I was doing it wrong because I felt lonely, maybe it is a natural consequence of following our leadership instincts. I’m going to think about that for a while.

Another concept that got my attention…..

Then he talked about holding the ladder for others. Being there as a support and foundation to help others get ahead. I loved that. 

I have a hunch……I bet you’re holding the ladder for others. If you are an entrepreneur you’re either doing this for your clients as an expert advisor or your team as you get your amazing product or service out into the world. 

Something powerful happened when I created a group program this past Spring (Zone of Genius). People stopped feeling alone. I held up a ladder for the group. Better yet, the group held up the ladder for each other. During the group discussions we saw that others had the same fears, frustration, struggles and even anxiety that we did. 

That’s why I created a Monthly call, just for you. Let me hold the ladder for you, come join us as we hold up a ladder for each other. The circumstances around us are requiring us to do more mindset work, come learn some ways to apply and get what you need. Mark your calendar now, for the next few dates.
