Have you been craving some recognition for all your amazing hard work and contribution?
If so, it’s no wonder. You deserve it!
One of our primary drivers of happiness is the desire to feel acknowledged and valued. If you’ve been going over and above the call of duty, producing stellar results, but have not been receiving the recognition you want and deserve, here are three ways you can light a fire under the behind of others, so they take notice of you and laud your efforts and accomplishments.
1.) Hone It and Own It.
Repeat to a trusted friend, family member or to yourself in the mirror every day for at least a week at the same time every day. You can even send an audio message to someone:
“I am excellent at ….., and I bring tremendous value to ……. I love it because ….., and I speak about my area of passion and expertise to three colleagues, family members or friends a week.”
Something extraordinary happened at Xerox between 2001 and 2009, prior to the only woman to woman CEO changing of the guard in a large Fortune 500 company. For almost a decade, Ann Mulcahy was a fierce ally and supporter of Ursula Burns, so there would be a smooth transition when Ursula became CEO in 2009. In Mulcahy’s HBR article How I Did It: Xerox’s Former CEO on Why Succession Shouldn’t Be a Horse Race, she was not threatened by the brilliant, outspoken, and power of Burns. Mulcahy recognized Burn’s strengths, challenged her to improve her weaknesses and championed her for almost a decade until Burns eventually replaced her as CEO.
What can we learn from these two compassionate and powerful women, and how can we use this wisdom to empower more female leaders, emerging leaders and male allies, especially those who sit on the margins?
Quite a lot, but here are two important things to ponder and hopefully...

If you’re feeling overwhelmed, not sleeping well, dropping off your routine or your productivity is tanking... the good news is that you’re normal.
The not so good news is that you’re allowing your light to be dimmed. (Woo woo translation: your purpose-driven goodness that you are able to put into our family, your company and into the world is slowing down, and in some cases stopping all together.)
No bueno for you, your job security or those whom you influence.
You matter. A lot. Let’s make sure you understand how to manage your internal world, so you can keep contributing purposefully towards your dreams and feel joy along the way.
Happy New Year 2021 Limitless Leader family!
Yep, this community has a new name with some new content, curriculum and commitments. Here’s wishing you beautiful moments, treasured memories, and all the blessings a heart can know as we emerge from a most unprecedented year. This will be a year of saying “yes” to speaking up, being heard, and being courageous for the things that matter most to YOU.
First, consider... Do you ever get distracted and veer from what’s most important?
Maybe you’re so busy that you don’t have time to focus on what really matters to have massive impact this year?
We all do, but there are a couple things that sets the best apart from the rest.
Maybe it’s time for a “course correction”... so you can fully lean into this year with purpose-driven clarity, confidence and influence.
This is important now more than ever, don’t you think?
I never stop being impressed with this community. Despite a most unusual and challenging year, goodness, impact and momentum have prevailed. It is with sadness for all those who have suffered and also with gratitude for the purpose driven course-correction that has been demanded of all of us this year.
What will 2021 bring? YOU decide, and let’s make it happen.
What impact do you want to have?
How do you want to spend your days?
Whose lives do you want to touch?
What recognition would you like to receive?
How do you want to feel about your contribution, your energy, your freedom, your passion projects, your career, and your legacy?
You should know by now that I believe wholeheartedly, and I work with the scientists who have proven my quote to be true (namely Dr. Anders Ericsson, author of Peak)…
“You are only limited by what you think is possible.”
Here’s to reaching new heights and a happy and healthy...
First, thank you for becoming a new subscriber or for being a subscriber to our community for many years. Your willingness to continue to learn and grow makes you world-class. I mean it wholeheartedly when I say, you are a gift. A gift to your family, your colleagues, clients and ultimately to the world.
Our community motto for 2021 is ‘Hone It and Own It’ because you deserve to shine your light as bright as ever in 2021, and you must. There is something that will inevitably get in the way though, so let’s deal with it now, so we can be unencumbered by it in 2021… This invisible barrier is called ‘preference’.
Preference is a funny (and troublesome) thing. When we prefer that something entirely out of our control is a certain way and it isn’t, more often than not it creates anxiety, frustration and sometimes even anger. These snowballs that we build into avalanches with our mind tend to...

Do you feel like everything is catching up with you?
Overwhelmed by your current schedule and possibly underwhelmed by the progress you’re making on initiatives that matter to you?
It’s definitely that time of year, and you are not alone. The good news is that you can have a "mini intervention" with yourself, your schedule, and the impact you’re having, so you can feel less overwhelmed and more in control and on purpose. You’ll likely be more fun to be around too:)
This "Get to Know Yourself" questionnaire will help you next-level your understanding of who you are and what’s important to you. You’ll be looking from a perspective that may be unfamiliar, but this can be a catalyst to ignite momentum and inspire consistent action.
