In preparation for the “Born to Lead…a Life of Significance” program we would like to offer a couple of ideas to maximize the impact of the material on your life.
Each day we will present an idea and a question or two for you to consider and answer.
As you work through the program you will quickly discover the true value is not in the material itself, but in your response to the material- your thoughts, insights, answers and ultimately your actions.
Remember that reading and learning are only powerful if you apply what you learn. If we took action on everything we already knew we would instantly transform our lives and the lives of others.
Following are the first three actions to maximize the benefit of the daily material on your life-
1. Get a notebook to record your daily thoughts. There is something empowering about writing down your insights and commitments that will help you take action on what you learn.
2. Invite at least one person to join you on this journey of discovery and transformation as your accountability partner. The power of shared experience and encouragement cannot be over emphasized.
3. Each week schedule a specific time to discuss your insights, commitments and actions with your accountability partner.
It appears that lesson one in self-leadership has begun. It is not capability that matters as much as it is the ability to take one step at a time in the right direction.
“The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.”Lao Tzu
Everything changes instantly by simply taking one step in the right direction. Let your journey begin, for you alone can take the first step.
