Let me be honest for a second. As a social change leader you are the victim of so many defeating messages, on likely a daily basis. If you’re like a lot of my clients, you probably don’t even realize how much you’ve internalized these messages.
As a society, we say things to nonprofit leaders like:
“You’re not as savvy or competent as business leaders.”
“You’re not worthy of as much investment as businesses.”
“You’re not innovative like business leaders are.”
“We don’t trust you with significant and unrestricted funding.”
And the list goes on.
That’s just wrong.
As a social change leader, you are on the frontlines, working tirelessly to mend this broken world.
You are doing incredibly important work, often with pennies.
But it doesn’t have to be so hard.
You have the power, already within you, to break free from these defeating messages and start attracting an abundance of people, time, money, power and influence to realize your mission.
Want some inspiration for that work? Listen in on my conversation with Julia Campbell from the Nonprofit Nation podcast. Here’s a clip:
