Enjoy your solitude
Tigers copy my style. They are like me. Though I am married, I like to be alone. Before marriage, I was an introvert, after marriage I became more introverted. I am bound to talk to her, so I do but tigers don’t. Similarly, tigers too like to be alone. They are considered solitary animals. We have seen this many times, multiple tigers are kept in a single cage, but they are not of the same age. No two tigers of the same age will roam together. They enjoy being alone. They roam alone in the jungle and miss their ex-lovers or plan for the next hunt. They watch and study their natural surroundings for more opportunities. They notice signs of change in climate to stay prepared for upcoming events.
Do you enjoy your solitude? Do you enjoy long and leisure walks alone? Do you prefer staying alone in the company of others? Do you maintain distance even when you are in a group? Do you keep pushing people away?
When you walk alone, your mouth shuts and your brain works. Being alone, you think about different things. Leaders love to stay alone and invest their time in creating new opportunities. When they sit alone, they find solutions to their ongoing problems. For a leader, it is very important to give time to yourself. When you invest time in yourself, you sharpen your mind. By dealing with negativity, failure, taunts, and rejections continuously, your mind gets stubby. If an organization is driven by a stubby mind, it will never progress. To lead your team in a better way, you need time to sharpen your mind. Once you stay alone, your inner strength rejuvenates and you become sharper than before. If you cannot picture a better future for your team, they will never be in a better place. You need to show them the future and before that, you need to see their better future.
Don’t feel uncomfortable if you are apart from the crowd. Tigers walk alone remember this. When you are away from the crowd, your mind is at peace. When you are at peace you can think better, make better decisions and act in a better way. Your presence of mind matters a lot in achieving the goal. If you are in a mess, everyone from your squad is in a mess. So, take your loneliness as freedom and enjoy your solitude.
