Have you ever heard people use
their circumstances as the reason for not achieving their goal? They
use the phrase “Under my circumstances.” I ask, ”What are they doing
under there?” Just how did they make the decisions that got them their
circumstances? The results we have in life are directly related to the
information that we use. If you have some results you want to change,
then it’s time to change the information. One of the many definitions
of leadership is planned conflict against the status quo. A leader does
not accept a problem in their life as a circumstance. They don’t accept
average if good is available or good if great is available whether it’s
in their personal life or the world they live in. LIFE Leadership
provides what many are finding is the highest quality of leadership
information for the best possible cost. We are seeing so many people
get different results because they have changed the source of
information. Just check the testimony box on the LIFE Leadership home page for great comments and perspectives about how leadership has made a difference.
We’ve all heard about people
who set resolutions or goals at the turn of the New Year although it
appears that the majority doesn’t follow through on their commitment.
Achieving a great year requires new habits, focus, and persistence.
That’s how you get different results by this time next year. But you
must begin your journey to a great year by having a great month. Here is
why leadership is the difference maker. As you begin the process of
changing your habits you begin the process of forging your character.
Application or action also develops the plan, do, check, and adjust
process that develops competency from learning through new experience.
You now possess the main ingredients of leadership, vision with a goal, a
character others can trust and competency that proves you can do the
job. This same formula can be applied whether you are improving your
marriage, finances, fitness, or business.
Why do many of us
procrastinate or fail to follow through with a commitment? It’s called a
comfort zone. Leaders move out of their comfort zone when the pain of
staying the same becomes greater than the pain of changing. Also when a
leader begins to own their own compelling vision of the end result, they
become passionate with a purpose. Unfortunately most won’t make the
time to break out of their procrastination. Most people I have met are
so busy making money that they never uncover a true passion for life.
Leadership is about making a
difference, first in our own lives by developing qualities necessary to
change our status quo. As people begin to see improvements in finances,
relationships, fitness, or their business, something happens. A leader’s
influence begins to increase based on the changes in their own
character. They begin to make a difference in other peoples lives
because they gain credibility and earn trust with others. Because of the
decisions to change our lives, we start to influence others. Others see
the leader change and then they develop the belief that the change they
seek is possible.
Take out a piece of paper and
on the upper left, list the most important thing in your life. Next,
list the second, third, fourth, and fifth most important things in your
life. Now, divide the paper down the middle. On the right side under
number one list what takes the most percentage of time in your life.
Next, list the next most time demanding activity all the way to five.
Most people find that they spend at least eight hours on the job
accounting for 1/3 of their day. We typically sleep for about six to
eight hours accounting for the other 1/3 of their day. That leaves eight
hours for driving the kids to activities and cooking and cleaning. The
remainder few hours spent is quality time we spend with our loved ones
or our most important priorities in our life. What people are finding is
that by applying new information they can line their priorities up in
the same order to match their activities. They can become fulfilled.
This is where LIFE Leadership
comes in with a systematic approach to leadership development. One of
the most successful business concepts in the 21st century is a
franchising format or a turn – key approach model. This is where a
proven system has been tested and marketed. This happens to be why LIFE
Leadership is growing like it is. People don’t have to find a new
formula when they have a situation in their life they want change. They
can simply have access to a proven system with new information. Best
selling authors like Orrin Woodward
and Chris Brady have taken their genius from the automotive industry
into the leadership industry. They have developed a model we can use not
only to make a greater difference in our lives but others. There are
those who develop a passionate purpose because of their vision of making
a difference in the other people’s lives or even the world. They see
how they can make a greater difference by developing a leadership
It all starts when we want to
make a difference in our lives. Each one of us can visualize something
we can change to make our lives better. That’s when we begin to focus.
Soon we realize how our influence from changing and making a difference
in our own life is on others. There is a special satisfaction knowing
you’ve helped others. When others align their priorities they can have
more fulfillment that comes from making a difference in their lives. The
average person does not lead a fulfilling life. In fact several studies
showed that the average person is unhappy with their job either with
the money they make or the task they do. New information that is applied
can and does change results. What if leadership could make the
difference? That is why more and more people are discovering the
industry of the future. God Bless, George Guzzardo
