Sometimes we experience success that takes us far, but not all the way. From the outside people might even think you are crushing it, but you know inside that you are stuck. But when that log jam comes at a high level, it is hard to complain to others or yourself. Things are good. But you want things to be great.
The middle used to be okay, as the "middle man" had a lot of power and controlled the flow of goods and services. But in a would where more things are "direct", the middle can lead to obsolete.
Have you ever felt stuck in the high-middle? When it happens you have to be a leader if you want to advance. Regardless of if you lead a team of 1000, 100 or just yourself, there are certain actions leaders take to help themselves and others advance.
Real leaders are sought out by other.
Crunching numbers and hiding behind statistics are not what leaders do.
Leaders are visionary, and they want to learn, observe, and try new things.
Being unique matters to leaders.
Waiting around is not what a leader does, leaders hustle.
Leaders test assumptions.
Playing big is how a leader shows up.
Leaders recognize patterns and know that success leaves clues.
In your daily efforts do you show up as a leader? If you are stuck in any way, then the time is now to become a leader. Do not expect others to come to your rescue. The world is more competitive than others. Potential is good, but it is not enough. The Paradox of Potential is about how we cherish potential, but that does not equal results. Leaders care about results.
Hiding behind busy is another problem. Working 70 hours a week does not mean you are efficient. In fact, we look at busy as a faux badge of honor in today's world. Being busy makes many people feel good, but we need to do more than clock hours. Progress and results are key.
