The only true gift a leader must possess is vision.
One of my best friends is a man who is considered a Christian Statesman, Sir John Edmund Haggai.
Author of numerous books on leadership, this single quote has stuck with me for my entire career…
“The leader seeks to communicate his vision to his followers. He captures their attention with his optimistic intuition of possible solutions to their needs. He influences them by the dynamism of his faith. He demonstrates confidence that the challenge can be met, the need resolved, the crisis overcome.”
Parsing this out, you quickly get the idea that…
When I was completing Think TQ & Grow Rich, I looked back at all the wisdom of the ages and came to this conclusion.
The people who made it over the years were all considered nuts by their friends, families, bosses, coworkers, everyone who they came into contact with.
Napoleon Hill documented this perfectly in his Think and Grow Rich book of the late 1930s. Then, it was about stuff like automobiles, radio, TV, phones, etc.
Decades later, my dear friend Robert Schuller wrote a book on a very crazy topic: Possibility Thinking.
Billions Are Being Spent To Make Machines Smarter… But Who’s Going to Make You Smarter Than a Machine?
We have become a “survival of the smartest” global economy where human capital needs to be retooled, reimagined, and reinvented. And we need to do it quickly.
Put simply, we need to make people — not just machines — smarter about what they think and do each day — at work and at home.
To achieve this, The World Excellence Project has developed and deployed a smart new App designed to make you smarter in the moment.
“Stress is the trashcan of modern life. It builds up to overflowing then all you have is garbage spread all over your life. There is a simple key to reducing stress in your life… just be yourself.” ~ E. R. Haas, Author The Invisible Billionaire
Making Every Minute Matter Is Not Just A Great Idea…
Think TQ is all about measuring your Time Quotient (TQ), your ability to achieve the results you want in the time you have.
To instantly understand this, click play on the video clip above >> focus your thoughts for a moment >> and take a mental inventory.
Do you spend your time wisely?
Do you know where your time is spent versus invested?
Do you harvest maximum value from every precious minute in your day?
Or, do you permit these 3 thieves to rob you of your future:
As we close out 2018 and look forward to 2019, it’s a great time to take inventory of how far we’ve come, and where we want to go in 2019.
Many of us had a wonderful year, full of opportunities, challenges and positive results.
Some had real problems, professionally, emotionally and financially.
Regardless, it’s time to stop for a moment and ask the BIG question… “What If?”
What if I had worked a bit smarter… how much further down the line would I be?
What if I had stopped long enough to THINK a bit more each day… what opportunities would I have been able to seize?
What if I had taken time more seriously… what could I have accomplished?
When we created the Time Prism we spent a great deal of time deciding the order of the 10 colors.
Some felt that Mission or Attitude needed to be the first color because everyone knows, “attitude is everything!”
Others thought that having real goals, in writing with hard-target deadlines was most important.
And others still felt team building skills, organization and time management should be numero uno!
“The best way to predict the future is to create it.”~ Peter F. Drucker The Key to Living a Life that Matters.Now On Sale. All last week we focused on the Power of Positive Expectations. If you remember only one thing, remember this: Goals don’t achieve themselves. To achieve your greatest aspirations, you must draw […]
There is a simple program that will make a huge difference to your life.
It is best described as “Instant Illumination.”
Where once you were living in a haze, you can now see what you must do differently to attain what you want most:
financial independence… a better career… or even more time for yourself and your loved ones.
When we started the Excellence Habit Challenge back in January, we knew it would be a big hit.
Take 100 days to get to know your “real self” and inculcate a single habit that will change your life, and the lives of everyone you love.
To become a great deal more successful than you are right now.
“I am here for a purpose and that purpose is to grow into a mountain, not to shrink to a grain of sand.
Henceforth will I apply ALL my efforts to become the highest mountain of all and I will strain my potential until it cries for mercy.” ~ Og Mandino
Yes, you CAN have it all…
Look at the calendar.
Look at your life.
Is this where you thought you would be after 10-20-30 years of hard work?
You dreamed of being rich one day. Are you?
You dreamed you would be happy by now… that you would catch that gold ring and make it yours. Did you?
Interesting questions, aren’t they? Probing. Provocative.
They get to the reality of it, don’t they?
Last week we discussed the difference between hopes and wishes vs. crystal-clear EXPECTATIONS.
As I pointed out all week, what you have the RIGHT to expect is based on four Colors within your personal Time Prism:
Your sense of purpose and MISSION… your ATTITUDE… your ability to set Smart GOALS… and your ability to establish realistic PLANS to achieve your goals.
The Next Step Upward…
We all have mountains to climb, some tall, some scary.
The great news is that as we approach the summit of one, we see others off in the distance.
So, we set our sights upward, towards bigger, better and bolder goals.
If you want to make the ascent to the top of your career… the top financially… the top personally and professionally…
why not get a little help to make the climb easier and a great deal more enjoyable?
Last week we discussed how to turn ever-present opportunities into tangible results.
This week we are going to discuss achieving greater results—in every area of your life.
From now until the end of the year we will be focusing on increasing your POWER to SET and ACHIEVE tremendously BRILLIANT goals for yourself—both personally and professionally.
