Often Candidates attending the Doctoral seminars have heard me speak of the factor of success in completing a PhD. I liken them to tools that we need in our toolbox. I repeat often that the most intelligent person is not necessarily the one who completes the PhD in the best fashion, or even completes the PhD at all. There are other factors that are more important to the successful completion of the dissertation and program.

Professor Paul Stewart Discusses Being The CEO Of Your Own Life – Part 3

The third in the series, this essay provides practical tools that empower you the CEO, from the perspective of being the driver of your own life. Part One of the series explored the concept of being the CEO of your own life and discussed the function and possibilities of belief. It highlighted the power we have to explore and change beliefs in an open sense of adventure and that this would produce outcomes from feelings to physical manifestations. Part Two shone light on the importance of personal alignment, the effectiveness and productivity of acknowledging ones natural strengths and the potential and reality of living a fulfilling life. By reading these ideas, the thinking mind opens and the internal wisdom can be felt as the individual listens to his or her own responses to the perspectives offered.

Professor Stewart Discusses Being The CEO Of Your Life – Part 2

In this, Part Two of the series, we will build on Part One where we stated that leadership has recognized roles in society but also questioned if we as individuals claim our own personal leadership enough. It offered the assertion that we can see our self as the CEO of our own life. Belief was identified as a primary area that can be examined and evolved as an expression of personal leadership. Beliefs were compared to a computer program in that they produce predictable output depending on what that program is. Any program can be updated freely by choice. Changing a belief or the programming will result in a different life experience from words and actions to feelings. A key point made was that beliefs can evolve or be expanded upon, yet it was also acknowledged that not all people are aware of this or indeed, believe it. Part Two explores perspectives of seeing yourself as a creator, inviting mastery in through various aspects, the ability we have to receive, and the power of personal alignment and presence.

Professor Stewart Discusses Being The CEO Of Your Life – Part 1

When we think of leadership, our thoughts may go to examples such as the heads of large organizations or to community figures that have historically impacted our society. We might point to others saying they are our leader through an accepted way of thinking or to simply avoid responsibility. But do we consider our self to be a leader regardless of our role, age or status? This series will explore the opportunity we all have to be the leader and what it takes to become and to live from the understanding that we are all the CEO of our life.
