This is an old post from Life member Steve Morgan I thought you all would enjoy.
In my opinion Steve is one of the greatest and youngest leaders on the team. He has been job optional since the age of 23.

We have the pleasure of working with the #7 Orrin Woodward & #12 Chris Brady, Leadership Guru’s in the world. I would say that the journey has been amazing.
Why did I pick this title? Because when you decide to start learning
from others that have more results in certain areas than you do, you
put yourself in a position to feel uncomfortable about needing to
change. Over the years I think the word CHANGE is the killer of what
could have been in many peoples lives. I, like many, don’t like change
that much either. Change is the factor that can make everything
different in someones life.
For example, if you read a: marriage, leadership, faith, or people
skills book, you will hit some point in the book where it will (or
should) make you look internally and say “man I’m not very good at
that.” That is a very hard comment to say, we all want to think we are
great at everything.
For me personally, I have had to change a bunch, and still need to
change more in my life. The thing about change is that when you get
better and look back at the old you, your glad you got better.
In the book Resolved, by Orrin Woodward,
he has many great chapters in the book that I like. The chapter that I
wanted to talk about in this post, chapter 4, Programing Elephant.
Over the years I have been intimidated many times by people that
dressed nice and smelled nice, but had stinking thinking. By reading
this chapter you will find that he says “By identifying what a person is
feeding his elephant, one can accurately predict his future.” That’s a
powerful statement. Most people let others feed their elephant and end
up where someone else wanted them to. I say, take the responsibility
of feeding your subconscious (elephant) and end up in life where you
Leave a comment of the most impactful book you have read. I would love to hear the titles.
I heard Orrin Woodward say “its not about being perfect, its about striving for perfection that leads to greatness.”
Here’s to Learning- Cheers
