The Art of Self Leadership
So, what is Self Leadership?
Self Leadership is the art of consciously managing our energies and skills to achieve desired objectives with more passion and purpose. Self Leadership is also the art of establishing vibrational coherence with the energy that powers the Universe, which I call Core Energy.
When coherence is present, we experience high levels of fulfillment and feel inspired to pursue our true desires in life. And we experience coherence when we give our thoughts, feelings and actions more direction, flow and purpose.
As a group facilitator and coach, I have observed that most people, including top achievers, don’t usually experience a true sense of fulfillment for two main reasons:
The first is a lack of meaningful, passionate goals and just settling into a routine. They may have a nice job, family, money, social life and everything else that should make one happy, but they lack a sense of purpose, or meaning in their lives.
Keeping Momentum Up
We all know is not easy to keep enthusiasm and creative juices flowing all the time. We typically get revved and excited when first initiating change, but after a while when the momentum slows down, the enthusiasm drops and resistance creeps in.

When doubts start to undermine our confidence, we need to go back to our intentions.
Are they truly coming from the Core of our Being or are we trying to fulfill expectations? Are we conscious of our inner conflicts that may be splitting our energy or just being reactive?
Our inner conflicts create cognitive dissonance in our vibrational mix, which lowers our desire levels. For example, we may set an intention to eat a...
High Flow Performance
Although there are many sports and activities which require higher levels of focus, very few compare to the intensity required for auto racing, especially Formula One.
And there is no greater driver who demonstrated this than the late Ayrton Senna, three time Formula One World Champion. I first met Ayrton when he was 14 years old when we raced go-karts in Sao Paulo. Ayrton was already an exceptional driver at that time, highly committed and determined to be the best. Watching him drive his go-kart around the track was inspiring because of his aggressive yet very precise style.
Ayrton is considered to be the best race car driver of all times, not only because of his exceptional skills, but also because of his intense focus and character. Listen to what he said about overcoming limitations:
“You think you have a limit. As soon you touch this limit something happens and suddenly you can go a little bit further. With your mind power, with your...
