New Level, New Devil

by | Mar 25, 2022 | Personal Development

You want more.

It’s understandable. It’s human nature.

But we often aren’t thinking about what we need to go through to get the more we want.

Which isn’t to say one should adopt an attitude of foreboding. That’s not it.

In the grand scheme of things, no matter what you face, it doesn’t mean anything. And when you’re facing something, that’s what you need to remember.

Even when something shows up in your world as bad, wrong, or evil, it doesn’t mean anything. You’re the one making it mean something.

As you reach for new levels, you will face new “devils.”

And even that means nothing.

But there’s a new level of responsibility, of accountability, in getting what you want.

Let’s look…

Once you did what you did for fun. Now it’s a profession and you have deadlines to deliver on.

Once you had a podcast you did “just because.” Now you have a sponsor you must satisfy.

Once you wrote an eBook because you thought you had something to share. Now your customers want you to offer personalized coaching sessions by the hour, and you’re burnt out.

The new “devil” is inevitably more responsibility, more accountability. And that doesn’t need to mean anything. It’s what you need to go through to get to where you want to go.

Once you’ve mastered a new level of responsibility and accountability, there will always be new levels of responsibility and accountability to reach for.

There’s isn’t a cap on leadership development. It’s only a matter of how far you’re willing to go. It’s having your word create your world, not your world, or your circumstance, creating your word.
