Leadership & Vision Go Together Like Ham & Eggs

Leadership & Vision Go Together Like Ham & Eggs

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…

Crazy? Great!

Crazy? Great!

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.

Will Artificial Intelligence be Your Friend or Foe?

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.

It’s Time to LOVE Your Life…

Life is not an endurance test… or a problem to be solved.

Life is an adventure of challenges, hopes, and dreams to be lived to the max.

It doesn’t take years to find the life you love, it takes just a few hours.

Business Success In Hours Not Years

The Hard Way or the Easy Way…

There is a hard way to build a company and there is an easy way to do it.

The hard way is what most people choose, relying on experience and trial and error — which is WHY 50% of all businesses fail within 36-48 months.

The easy way is to invest an hour a week in actual strategic planning — not general business planning which is useless — and determine what you are going to make happen. This is the key to growing the next Apple, Whole Foods, Nike… even the next hot new restaurant.

The Midas Touch in a Single Word: Strategy

Smarter Business Starts With a Smarter Strategy.

Today is a great time to think about the year ahead, what you must do to increase market share, attract new business, and build greater value.

That, of course is the desire.

But the reality is, most businesses will simply ignore the idea of creating an actual strategy, instead, attempting to throw a bunch of random tactics at the day to day issues every business faces.

Which is why the business failure rate continues to ravage the hopes and dreams of entrepreneurs everywhere.

Just 4 Words Will Put Resolve in Your Resolutions…

Just 4 Words Will Put Resolve in Your Resolutions…

This is something of a BAD news, GOOD news story…

The bad news is that 80% of all resolutions fail by the second week of February. Around 50% bite the dust by January 12th!

The good news is that you can turn THIS year into your best year ever by simply putting more RESOLVE in your resolutions.

There is no reason for you to work your tail off and still come up short this year. But to do this, you will need to take a slightly different approach, and employ a more consistent course of action.

We are all creatures of habit…

The truth is, habits you created 1-5-10 years ago are controlling your life today. This is as obvious as it is well documented.

Passion Turns The Ordinary Into Extraordinary…

Passion Turns The Ordinary Into Extraordinary…

I always love to read this quote by Maya Angelou around the new year, as it sums up a hundred pages of thoughts in a single sentence, “My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style.”

Isn’t this what we all want?

A life filled with passion and purpose?

A life of compassion and hope?

To thrive with style?!

Of course it is!

It’s Time Again To Look Back and Ask, “What If?”

It’s Time Again To Look Back and Ask, “What If?”

What If???

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?

Think & Grow Rich: The Power of a Single Thought

The App Napoleon Hill Would Have Loved and Wanted You To Have!

In 1937, Dr. Napoleon Hill penned a book that would sell millions of copies and become the touchstone for self-improvement readers everywhere.

He titled it, Think and Grow Rich… a book designed to connect the dots between our imagination… our ideas… the thoughts we think… and our ultimate success in life.

Around the same time, a young scientist named Albert Einstein opined that, “Education is not merely the learning of facts. But rather, education is training the mind to think.”

WOW — what a great idea — a system to get us to think and grow rich.

Emotional Freedom: Life is Good…

Accept Thy Self: Heal Thy Self…

When you do, you earn the freedom to pursue your dreams to the full extent possible!

All of our hopes and dreams begin in our imagination.

What we call our Someday Dreams in Success On Purpose…

Someday I will go to Alaska…

Someday I will learn to play the piano…

Someday I will be married to a wonderful, warm and loving person…

Someday my family will enjoy the fruits of all my hopes and dreams.

Of course, the list is endless… because our imaginations are boundless.

We also want to get ahead on a playing field that is inherently just and fair.

Hence our continued struggle to field our dreams against the backdrop of an inherently unjust and unfair world.

Authenticity: Know Yourself First…

Authenticity…

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.

Leadership…

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.

Commitment: The Power of Greatness Within

Greatness…

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…
