Since this is my first blog, I thought I would give some information on how I arrived at this point and some basics on what it takes to start moving to great. It started when I was introduced to the-team.biz and the-life-business.com. As this blog progresses my intent it to help many people to
1. realize that they can be great
2. give them some direction on how to accomplish that
3. start to achieve it by really believing it
Dont get me wrong. I am not stating that I am great or that my life is great but I do associate with great leaders and read great books. As Charlie “tremendous”Jones says, ” you will become like the people you hang around and the books you read. ”
I was going through my life and was being very average. I was good at a lot of things but never focused my time to try to become great at something. I wouldn’t have even thought about it that way because I was convinced that the people in life that have succeeded did so because they were blessed with something that I was not blessed with. So because of that thought process, any time I was ok at something, I didn’t know that other people were just ok at things but then they really applied themselves and put in the 10,000 hours of mastery that Malcolm Gladwell talks about.
All of that changed when I was introduced to a group of leaders that where do nothing else except striving for greatness by being excellent in every area of life. Orrin Woodward and Chris Brady were the 2 gentlemen leading the charge with this community of people striving for greatness. As soon as i was exposed to this group I could tell that something was different. I wasnt even qualified to tell what it was but I could feel it. They were talking about things that were the exact opposite of what conventional thought would say and I was hooked. It is very intoxicating to be around great people. Anyone that has ever been part of a winning team knows what I am talking about. Their best-selling leadership book Launching a Leadership Revolution outlines what they were doing and is the foundation for the incredible organization they have put together called Team.
We are now on the verge of launching what I believe will be one of the greatest business ever put together, LIFE. I believe that because the process that started to work on my own pre-suppositions of thought, like, success is for them, this is just the way that I am, Im just not good at things, I didn’t have a dad, we are just broke people, I am a minority. All of the things that held me back before, I now know is a bunch of hogwash, whatever hogwash is.
I want as many people as possible to experience the trial and tribulations of striving for greatness and even if you don’t reach the greatness that you pictured. Because you did strive you at least know what it feels like to give your all to something and in the process you and your family will better humans, better parents and better friends. Please visit the links of my friends and get their perspective also. Whatever you do, find something and give your all to it and don’t let people who are happy with good keep you from being great.
