CREATING SELF-LEADERSHIP HABITS
Originally written in March 2019. Updated in August 2020.
Self-leadership habits are the foundation of every successful endeavour. But what are self-leadership habits and more importantly, how do you create them?
Good questions. Since we’re talking about self-leadership, let’s take a look into leadership itself.
Some may say that leaders are born and that leadership is a talent, not a set of skills that can be learned.
99% of what makes a great leader can be learned.
The other 1% is what I call leadership intuition. Which is your natural ability to lead others.
But when it comes to self-leadership. 100% of it is skills and 100% is learnable.
And anything that can be learned, can be made into a habit.
Self-leadership is a set of skills that allow you to give direction to your own life and choose what path you take. It’s about being in the driver seat. You choose where this life of yours is going.
And if you’re a business owner or a futur entrepreneur, as I suspect you are if you are reading this blog, then leadership skills are essential for growing your business.
They are the foundation of your decision making process, of evaluating opportunities that are presented to you, of understanding what your next step should be.
So what are self-leadership skills?
Self-leadership skills are:
How do you turn these skills into habits?
The same way you learn any other skill: with practice, perseverance and commitment.
To be effective, to really have an impact, self-leadership skills need to be integrated in your daily routine and become second nature, just like brushing your teeth or making your morning coffee.
In order to achieve that, you need a plan.
You need to have a plan
Like any endeavour worth undertaking, you’ll waste valuable time if you don’t have a plan.
Your plan should detail:
- the self-leadership skills you need to implement first and they grow on each other,
- your starting point on all those skills (grade yourself for each skill on a 1 to 10 scale),
- how much effort you believe each new skill will require of you (time commitment),
- a way to assess how far you’ve come and how much you’ve learned, and
- a way to keep yourself accountable.
If you don’t have a plan, you’ll waste your time.
Without a plan, you won’t be ale to gage your progress and you won’t know if all your efforts are actually producing results.
It’s easy to get discouraged when you’re only looking at the end goal and not acknowledging your little successes along the way.
Often times, people quit because they get overwhelmed by the overall task
Don’t let that be you.
I can’t count the number of times I’ve seen people get all excited about starting a new endeavour, putting in all this effort, only to get overwhelmed, lose track of the end goal and quit.
When you don’t have a plan to break down the big chunks and you don’t have a way to keep yourself accountable for your progress, your stacking the odds against yourself.
And it doesn’t have to be that way.
Success is not only for a selective few
Success is for everyone.
You are entitled to success.
All you need is a plan and the commitment to follow it.
A plan and a commitment.
I can provide you with the plan. All I need is your commitment.
You might think that leadership is not for you but trust me, it is.
If you’re a parent, you need self-leadership skills to raise your kids.
If you work in a corporate job, you need self-leadership skills to get ahead.
If you’re a business owner, you need self-leadership skills to build and propel your business forward.
Self-leadership habits are the tools you need to reach your goals and have the impact you know you can have.
You provide the commitment and I’ll provide you with the plan.

My dad used to always say: if you give a hungry man some fish, you’ll feed him for a day, but if you teach him how to fish, you’ll feed him for the rest of his life.

To teach you the skills you need to create the life you crave.
