When we created Success on Purpose the idea of Natural Mission and Authentic Direction in life was a big question mark.
We see the finding authenticity to be a connection issue.
Connection with your VALUES…
Connection with your VISION…
Connection with your ROLES…
If you live your values while pursuing your visions in all the various areas of your life, you have Authentic Direction.
If you live someone else’s vision… or someone else’s values… you will certainly have problems in finding Authentic Roles.
As part of the launch of our 2019 Midas Touch Bundle we will be talking about big issues, but in a highly condensed format.
Today it is on the connection between leadership and innovation.
If your business is a rising star, you know the power of hyper-fast innovation… and have mastered the leadership skills required for hyper-growth.
If you business is more of a problem child, you will benefit from this thinking.
It takes all kind of smarts to make the world go around.
Here’s an observation from J. B. Smoove…
“There’s book smart, there is street smart, there’s relationship smart, there’s too many different kinds of smarts to know all of them. Everybody doesn’t know every kind of smart. There’s money smart, there’s movie smart, there’s computer smart. There’s just too many different kinds of smarts for people to know all the smarts.”
Leadership can be hard to define and it means different things to different people.
In the transformational leadership model, leaders set direction and help themselves and others to do the right thing to move forward.
To do this they create an inspiring vision, and then motivate and inspire others to reach that vision.
We all know that to achieve extraordinary results we must be absolutely committed to both, the big WHY behind our actions as well as the expected RESULTS.
Commitment is one of those giant words we see as instrumental to the pursuit of both success and happiness.
It is very much a “believing is seeing” issue.
In TQ-speak, commitment is the 5th C in the 6 C’s of success as found in Success On Purpose:
Clarity of VALUES leads to clarity of VISION…
Clarity of VISION leads to clarity of ROLES…
Clarity of ROLES leads to the absolute CONVICTION that what you are about to do is the RIGHT thing to be doing…
Which leads to the unconditional COMMITMENT to doing whatever is required to achieve the vision…
What does the word HONOR mean to you?
Most people think of honor in the same light as respect.
But for most of us, the word has a much deeper meaning, especially if you served in the military.
Take a couple of minutes to focus your attention on the above video.
THINK about the word in context to the ever-changing story of your life.
Focus… Focus… Focus…
An amazing thing happens to people.
When you stop to THINK, great things happen!

Do you know your limits?
Let’s start here.
No one knows their limits until pushed well beyond anything they ever experienced before.
People who thought they couldn’t, could.
People who thought they had reached their limits, hadn’t.
All progress in history is made by people who challenged their limits…
