Leadership is so often misunderstood, misconstrued and misused. This week, the Numerology Cards reminds us what leadership really is.
Number 81 isn’t a number I’m terribly familiar with. For, starts, I don’t actually know anyone who is over 80. Secondly, the Tarot only counts to 78! The word associated with this card makes me recoil. Any head of a Western Country thinks they know what leadership is; I beg to differ. Forcing the country you’re picked to lead (if you’re picked at all!) to do your own “thing”, to my mind, isn’t leading. That’s dictating. Power (in my mind) has gone to their head and they’re not leading. Leadership is about having confidence in your ability to motivate, inspire and encourage those who walk along the same path as you are.
Are you needing to improve your current situation? Okay, we’re in a sticky holding pattern for some weeks to come, but that doesn’t mean you can’t act and lead with compassion. The best leaders I’ve ever had the pleasure to work with, were alongside me. They didn’t dictate from the back and drive the carriage, they guided us from within the group.
People graciously follow when they believe their best interests are being taken into account. They also follow when they feel they’re being listened too and you can demonstrate that you’re listening.
This week, whose best interests are you taking into account? Are you leading from the front? Or are you guiding from the back? Have you thought about leading from within? Are you working to the greater good of the goal, or to your own aims? What is the greater good for the goal you need to achieve?
Here’s this week’s affirmation: I lead others and in turn, serve a higher purpose.
I hope you’ve enjoyed my ramblings for this week. I’ve used The Numerology Guidance Cards by Michelle Buchanan, published by Hay House.
