Much of our language comes from belief systems that we hold about how things should be.
One of those beliefs is that we must be busy if we’re doing meaningful, valuable work.
However, a self-defeating phenomenon begins to occur when we say we’re busy. The underlying belief in those words is that we don’t have control over our time.
Have you ever noticed that when someone says they’re busy, they sport a defeated expression on their face? Do they look in charge, in their power, confident?
They look like a victim of their circumstances.
True leaders aren’t helpless, powerless victims. They take full ownership of their choices, their words and their actions.
