Leadership from Inner Being: Overcoming the Blind Spots

Leadership from Inner Being: Overcoming the Blind Spots

Sri Amit Ray  explains the concept of leadership from inner being. He also describes how to overcome the blind spots in leadership and decision making processes.

Leadership begins with a simple human gesture and that is to inspire others, and to inspire others you must feel integrated, harmonious and whole. When you are disconnected with your Inner Being, you don’t feel solid and whole in yourself. When you are connected with your Inner Being, you feel integrated, harmonious and whole.

Here, by inner dimensions I mean inner strength, inner vision – the expanded consciousness beyond the small ego which considers him or her self separate from the rest.  On the Physical body level we have emotional blockages. When you are connected with your Inner Being, you feel integrated, harmonious and whole. When you operate from your Inner Being you can overcome the mundane emotional blockages that drags you down. Through meditation, mindfulness and positive mindset we can get connection with our Inner Being. Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King are the examples of leadership from Inner Being.

Leadership from Inner Being By Sri Amit Ray

Authentic Leadership and Inner Dimensions:

We can consistently inspire others when we are authentic – authentic to ourselves and authentic to others. Authenticity is the single most important principle of leadership. Authenticity comes from our deeper inner dimensions. It comes from our core values, principles, and life experiences.

To be a good leader you must be authentic to your current state of development as well as to your potential state of development.  In cryptography, authenticity means messages that received by A are actually sent by B – there is no noise, error or loss of information. In leadership, authenticity means what you think, what you say and what you do are in harmony. There should not be any  contradiction, confusion or doubt. Today’s best leaders are authentic leaders. They are connected with their inner being, which guides them in their daily actions and enables them to earn the trust of their subordinates, peers, and shareholders. Read More »Leadership from Inner Being: Overcoming the Blind Spots

Inner strength and resilience are the two key components to face and transform every challenges of life. Good inner strength will give you self-confidence.

Inner Strength and Resilience

1. Identify your True Purpose of Life

God has given you many gifts  – but in some areas you are very very special. Identify those special areas where you can grow, contribute and get maximum satisfaction of life. If you can’t find your purpose at some point of life, life will throw you challenges – and you need to convert those challenges into opportunities.   When you set your purpose properly, you will activate more positive energies, gain better balance. 

 

“You need to find out, what you love most from the core of your heart, and for success you need to invest your time and energy on that.” — Amit Ray

2. Focus and Hard work

With focus and hard work, anything is possible. Small things matter – your daily exercise, your values,  your food habits and thinking patterns can make difference. Positive people are able to recognize that problems are not obstacles that get in the way but are new opportunities for creativity and problem solving. Every moment is a new moment to rise up and move forward into the victory.  

Time management is vital for success. Make to do list and isolate top three items in the list and give them priority to complete.   If you have too many people and too many friends, you will be obstructed in your focus.  Focus and concentration are essential for inner strength. Don’t allow life to overflow with unnecessary activities. Read More »7 Steps to Build Inner Strength and Resilience for Success and Happiness

As you get your connection to the higher source, your creativity increases. Creativity is to create something new with original ideas to resolve complex problems.
