In general, becoming a leader is about knowing how to lead others. It is also seen as being a reference and a light in your industry and in your domain of expertise.

It is true that being a leader starts by leading yourself first to the excellence you are seeking and by making your mission a reality.

Nevertheless, leading yourself is not only about being an expert in your field and mastering every facet of it. In other words, it is not just about spending the 10.000 hours to confirm yourself as an expert and as a reference. Expertise and knowledge are essential but they are not enough.

What makes a difference between leaders, experts, and successful people is the ability to lead themselves through their emotional states and through the struggles and challenges which come your way.

When you hold on to your mission and to a bigger vision, you start embodying some of the codes of self-leadership to thrive no matter what, to succeed no matter what, and pave the way for others through your leadership journey.

This is why to be able to lead yourself, it is essential to embody all the codes of self-leadership.

Discovering the Codes

I went from being an inhibited young woman growing up in Morocco where I was expected to marry young and settle down to becoming a millionaire++ and entrepreneur and among Forbes's ‘100 Most Powerful Women in the World, WHILE raising four beautiful children with the man I desired to partner in life.

In hindsight, I know this all happened because I’d uncovered and embodied the codes of self-leadership to success and wealth.

As I continue to embody these codes, I have also become a catalyst for the professional woman and female entrepreneur who is READY to unleash her self-leadership, create her desired wealth, Impact through her heart and service, and shine her authentic light of truth into the world.

As I’m going through my own leveling up, my understanding is deepening the connection between the Divine power of Infinite Intelligence and the phenomenal energy inside each one of us.

Client activation has accordingly leveled up and their tangible results are off the charts!

  • Donna, for example, just signed a 100K contract to bring a global brand into Africa, immediately after she restructured her business and repurposed her branding.

  • Imen, who moved back to Tunisia when the pandemic hit and consequently left her great career as an international environmental consultant, is now a rising TV Star in Tunisia, soon to be global!

  • Bouchra, through her Podcast, has become a Voice for every woman who has had to leave her country and recreate herself in the West. All while raising her family with tradition and modernity.

What these ladies have in common is that they mastered the codes of self-leadership.

Unlocking the three first codes

Once you understand that designing your life is your responsibility, you will shift into a new level of energetics and possibilities. Although it seems easy at first, that transition may take a deeper work, discipline, and the will to be in charge and create a new life.

The three first Codes of Self-leadership will put you on a track to brilliance, success, and infinite possibilities.

Here are the three first codes: making the unshakable decision to change fast, changing the limiting old beliefs, and integrating one productive action.

Code 1. Taking the unshakable decision to become in charge of your life and to design what you truly want to have in your life is the first step to reaching success.

We grow up having our decisions made for us through our parents, and we get used to that. And then, we are faced with a reality where we need to learn how to make sound decisions and stick to them.

In fact, successful people make decisions very fast and change them slowly. While people who have difficulties in life, they make decisions very slowly, and then they changed them fast and often.

Here is what happens when you make a decision to improve to lead yourself: you flip your brain and your thinking. Thus, you start operating at a different level that will get you closer to your goal.

Code 2. Changing the old beliefs that are stopping you is the start of your self-leadership. In other words, creating new beliefs to help you reach your goals and make your dreams a reality. When you focus on your mission and a big goal you set up for yourself, make it your focus, and don’t let any old thinking or discouragement move you away from that goal. You need to become your own cheerleader, your own simulation, and your own motivation. That is what it means to be a leader of yourself!

Code 3. Integrate one productive action in your daily programming. One productive habit is to get you closer to your goal and to get you disciplined by repeating the productive habit. The secret to reaching success in what you do is to integrate discipline into your life. In fact, discipline helps you transform productive actions into daily habits. When you are able to understand the importance of the habits in shaping your life, you will be ready to let go of habits that are not serving you and not helping to get closer to your objectives.

Leading yourself to success

By embodying these three first codes of self-leadership you will be able to start noticing changes in your life through a mood and emotional shift. When you can shift emotionally that translate into vibrations and frequencies. These frequencies are the energetics that helps us attract what we want to see happening in our lives.

This is why we focus a lot on the mindset in the first phase of our Empowered Leaders Mastermind. When you work on your mindset, you will automatically improve your productivity and your creativity. This is why taking a moment to assess the emotional state we are in and understanding the thoughts and beliefs which are holding us back is essential. That is exactly what makes a difference between great success and a continuous journey of trying to be.
