Transformation is a process, and as life happens there are tons of ups and downs. It's a journey of discovery – there are moments on mountaintops and moments in deep valleys of despair. Rick Warren
It is amazing when God brings people that can help you grow and transform. The slogan for the work that our team is doing in Paraguay is The Transformation Begins in me. And boy it needed to happen in me. The first time I facilitated a round table I took a small action step, to change my soft drink during dinner for a bottle of water. That small action step was the catalyst to start a transformation in many areas of my life.
Being connected to a community of people that are affirming and growing side by side with you is the best investment you can do for yourself. Are you ready for the transformation that is needed in you? Remember The transformation begins in you.
Are you ready? Let’s do it together.
3 characteristics of transformational leaders
1. Great Attitude
Transformational Leaders have a great attitude towards every situation they encounter. It is not to be confused with being happy about what is happening. When you have a great attitude you are choosing how you react and your attitude in difficult moments. You decide to keep a good perspective and focus yourself towards your goal. That focus will help you take actions that will guide you towards fulfilling the vision you have for your family, team, or company. When you are focused you can achieve the results that you need to even do the outside conditions may not be in your favor. Remember this:

Tranformational leaders are always willing to go the extra mile. They know their craft and are good at it. They read books, attend seminars and even volunteer their time to help others. Competent Leaders look for Excellence in everything that they do. Average is curse word for a competent leader. They do not want to be average, they are looking to exceed expectations everyday. And as competent leader you look to inspire others to achieve their very best and follow your example. This brings credibility to the leader.
[shareable cite=”John C. Maxwell”]Competence goes beyond words. Is the capacity to plan and execute in a way others want to follow you[/shareable]
Transformational leaders define clear priorities that will help them decide where they go. Without clear priorities you may think that action is a synonym to success, but that is the case. Leaders that do not establish their priorities will waste their time in many tasks that may not help them reach their goals. Your priorities should be based on the return they can provide. The Pareto Principle says that we get 80% of the return of our time from the top 20% of our priorities. Leaders that understand this are able to accomplish a lot more because they focus their effort and priorities on what can help them accomplish their goals.
[shareable cite=”John C. Maxwell”]In order to make your dreams a reality you need to determine your priorities and act on them daily[/shareable]
