There are a few things that good leaders do. Good leaders have mentors or coaches. You may hear you're in the coaching space or been in that coaches have coaches, mentors have mentors, the leaders have leaders another things that leaders do or have, they are always growing, so you may hear that leaders are readers, so they're reading, they’re consuming information. They're always looking to learn something new about what's going on in their field, so if you are home schooling your kids, you're always looking to find a way to do it better, make it a better experience for you and for your short people. If you are in the corporate space, you're in finance, you're always looking to find a better way to do it, a better way to grow, a better way to make that experience better for your clients. You're always looking to grow and do and have more and be more.
Leaders are always looking to grow in any kind of way and these are all kinds of ways, emotionally, spiritually, physically, always growing, always reaching higher, always setting the bar higher. That is what leaders do and another thing that leaders do, leaders are tapping into their resources, and knowing what the resources are. When I'm talking about resources, I'm not just talking about human resources or your friends or your family. I'm talking about programs. I'm talking about specifically for veterans. Let's talk about your benefits package. Do you know all of the benefits that your benefits package offers you? Do you know that you can get acupuncture? Do you know that you can get yoga classes? Do you know everything that your benefits package offers you? Do you know all of the opportunities that you have within part of what your job is like they're doing their job is to really dig in to everything that is available to you. And when you are taking a course or you're taking a class, you’re on university, tap into everything that you're entitled to. I don't know if you know this, but when you are in school, you're taking a class. What you're available to have is you have access to software, so if you're looking to use Microsoft products and all of those sort of things, you're able to tap into all of these other kinds of resources because you are a student at that school. Just because you don't you're not on campus doesn't mean that you don't have the ability, the right, the entitlement to tap into all of the things that the school has to offer. I was talking to one of my friends and I was telling her if we really took the time to tap into all of our benefits and all of our resources that we were entitled to, we really want to be free. One of the things I learned the other day, and I'm telling the whole world, if you have a disability, and you are over 50, in some of the schools in your state, you can get a free degree or you can audit classes for free.
Tap into the benefits that you have and as leaders, that is something that we get to do, so just to recap, again, we're just talking about personal leadership and what leaders do in their industry, whether you work from home, whether you're in your own business, whether you’re in your career, leaders have leaders. Leaders have mentors, leaders have coaches, coaches have coaches, leaders have someone to look up to, to aspire to, and that doesn't always meet in person leader, someone that you talk to physically, although you should definitely do that because you're going to have questions, but you're going to have someone that you model question, take their tips and tricks from. Leaders are always looking to grow, so leaders are readers. Leaders take courses, leaders learn how to do things better, and leaders tap into the resources and use the resources to the full extent that they can. Are you being the best version of a leader that you can? Are you tapping into your leadership abilities? You get to do that.
