Those who can’t do can’t really teach. But those who can do can lead and show others how they change in order to create a more impactful result. First, learn to influence yourself. Be that living example. Don’t do it because you have the title of business owner. Don’t do it because you have the title of manager or director or vice president. Titles alone give you no power. They only represent your ability to either influence through your experiences and your actual intentionality...

Everything rises and falls on leadership, that’s what John Maxwell says, and it is true in all we do. The true measure of leadership is influence. Your leadership effectiveness is directly relative to your ability to influence others, and it’s earned by example, not title. “If you can’t influence people, they will not follow you. And if people won’t follow you, you’re not a leader.” You have to first have the internal fortitude to influence and inspire yourself to believe higher....

Gallup polls says that out of 100 million Americans, 70% of them who were surveyed in 2013 were either actively disengaged or disengaged at work. That means the core energy out of the 100 million who work, only 30% care about what they do. The question is how do you harness the power of your people to help you create an amazing organization? “It’s through doing things differently with your people.

Great businesses are built with great people. No great business was ever built with mediocre people; it just doesn’t happen. So how do you move beyond where you’re at to where you want to be? The only way to do that is to start thinking different. When you think different, you do different. So the question is how do I change my thinking? How do I increase my point of references? How do I have a richer, more dynamic take on what is available to me in my life, personally, professionally, and...

To establish fact and belief, you have to write out exactly what it is you want to attain. You have to feel it. You have to see it. You have to visualize the attainment of what it is you want to be intentional about creating. Then you’ll have that emotional response, and it’ll trigger the reference points in your mind to go do the things that you need to do in order to make your picture come to life. But if you don’t write something down because you don’t have a picture, and you...

Is it possible for an organization to be operationally effective if they have a low level of belief?  Absolutely not. Let me put it to you this way.  OK.  Let's take it on the individual level. I can be highly operationally effective, and not believe in anything you're doing as an organization. As long as I'm getting what I want out of your organization, I could care less what your purpose is. Now understand that you see this with great salespeople sometimes.

Great teams have depth. And with a great bench, the options for your business are endless. I want to directly relate this story to Audigy Group.

Then once I identified with that individual what they were doing to create the highest level impact, I taught them how to duplicate that...

Your greatest gains come in the middle of your pain. Think about what that's saying to you. Pain is an opportunity.  It means that you're reaching a threshold that starts to become uncomfortable. Then pain settles in. Why? Because you're doing something that doesn't feel good. Most people at that point in time stop.  The rate limiting factor between businesses that move on the magnitude of impact scale from poor to remarkable is how well they're able to manage through the pain.

Great vision precedes great achievement. Every team needs a compelling vision to give it direction. A team without vision is, at worst, purposeless. At best, it's subject to the personal, and sometimes selfish, agendas of various team members. As the agendas work against each other within your environment, the team's energy and drive drain away. On the other hand, a team that embraces vision becomes focused, energized, confident, intentful, and it knows where it's headed and why it's going...

Remember: The highest goal of leadership is not to gain followers or do work but to develop other future leaders. It takes all your energy, from what you do to who you do it with, showing they’re the most important factor in attaining your goals. Because they’re going to either amplify and magnify all your success — your total sum of your purpose — or they’re going to undermine it. So you have no choice but to develop your people to the highest, most impactful contribution possible....

Look in the mirror and ask yourself this simple question: When I look inside my own organization, what would the people who work there — the people who help me — say was my legacy relative to them, not to the community we serve? The people I’ve brought into our culture to assist in creating that impact. “What would they say is your legacy with them?” Because if you can’t say your legacy is that you made a huge impact on their lives — that you’ve taught them something, that...

Winning teams have players who make things happen. Catalysts are not consultants. They don’t recommend a course of action; they take responsibility for making it happen. So think about this: Who’s the catalyst in your business? Who’s the person who just gets it done? And then has time and energy and effort to do more? Because that’s the type of people you want to surround yourself with. “Bring in the right people in alignment with your organization and they will get things done.”...

Teammates must be able to count on each other all the time, and especially when it matters the most. There’s an old saying when it comes to teammates: Either we’re pulling together or we’re pulling apart. Write and publish what you want, but the only missions, values, and ethics that count in your company are those that manifest themselves in all the behaviors of all the people contributing to the organization all the time. “All people in the organization need to be able to depend on...

The goal is more important than the role. If you think you’re the entire picture, then you’ll never see the big picture. And if a team is going to reach its potential, each player must be willing to subordinate their personal goals for the good of the team. But why is this important? “If you don’t have the proper big picture, not everyone understands that they play an integral part of that — not an individual part, not an independent part, but an integral part, which means they work...

Intuition is the innate ability for an entrepreneur to see, sense, and take advantage of an opportunity. People are intuitive in their area of strength. And whenever a leader faces a problem, they automatically measure it and begin solving it using their intuition. “Intuition is built through doing things over and over and over and seeing the result.” Many of you started your business because you saw an opportunity to do something great. And then you get so busy doing whatever you’re...

“Trust is the foundation of leadership. To build trust, a leader must exhibit competence, connection, and character. Character makes trust possible and trust makes leadership possible.” You want the kind of trust with your team that says they can engage you when there are problems, or when there are opportunities, or when they have thoughts, or when they just want to smile and say good morning. People are going to connect, they’re going to work with each other, they’re going to trust...

Anyone can steer a ship, but it takes a leader to chart the course. When it comes to leadership, the first leadership you have to master is me leadership. Once you’ve mastered that and you’ve become an example to others, then you have to master we leadership. “Leaders who navigate do even more than control the direction in which they and their people travel; they see the whole trip in their minds before they even set course.” They have a vision for getting there. They know who...

You are responsible for everything that happens to you — good, bad, or indifferent. If you blame others for where you’re at in life, you voluntarily give up your power to change. This is a huge mistake that most business owners make. See, when I talk to them and they tell me all the reasons they’re encountering struggle, they blame everyone around them. They blame the economy, the government, their competitors, their employees. But this isn’t going to solve the problem. And in the same...

We are the creators or the cause of our current conditions. We are the ones responsible for either having or not having. And a central growth principle is the more you outflow, the more you inflow. Better said, the more you give, the more you get. We must give the very thing that we want. If I want respect, love, appreciation, dedication, commitment, and loyalty, I have to give that first. I can’t attract it in my life if I’m not giving it. This is a clear example of what so many business...

To establish fact and belief, you have to write out exactly what it is you want to attain. You have to feel it. You have to see it. You have to visualize the attainment of what it is you want to be intentional about creating. Then you’ll have that emotional response, and it’ll trigger the reference points in your mind to go do the things that you need to do in order to make your picture come to life. But if you don’t write something down because you don’t have a picture, and you...

Anything you believe, the subconscious will validate. Absolutely every time, find the conditions to validate your broken belief. If you have a limited belief or broken belief, and you say you want to have a different result, unless you program your mind to think differently and to see things differently and to experience things differently, you’ll find the same result you already believe is going to occur. See, the belief is the master, and we become the slaves to that belief. Our belief...

If you want a business that’s surviving and thriving rather than a business that’s struggling, that’s a decision — that’s a choice. You have to make that choice yourself. And the first part of getting what you want is clearly understanding and identifying exactly what that is. See, that’s where law of picture comes in, and law of compass. This is why law of picture is so important. If you have a picture and you use law of compass so you know what direction you’re going, and you...

I’m so excited to share with you Beyond Positive Thinking. Dr. Robert Anthony is a world leader when it comes to the mind, and this is the book that changed my life forever. Your actions are a direct result of your ideas, right or wrong. Think about this. You are going to follow your thinking. So if you have broken or limited thinking, you’re going to have broken or limited results. Your opportunity to build a big business and achieve exactly what you say you want to achieve is directly...

As you look around at your fellow human beings, you’ll find it hard to ignore the fact that very few people are happy, fulfilled, and leading purposeful lives. Most of them seem unable to cope with their problems in the circumstances of daily living. The majority, settling for the average, have resigned themselves to just getting by. Resignation to mediocrity has become such a way of life. As a result, feelings of inadequacy cause them to blame society, people, circumstances, and conditions...

We’re talking about capturing your “How” Advantage — my good friend and business performance expert Ryan Estis kind of coined this phrase. And when we first started talking about it, I said, “What the hell is a ‘How’ Advantage?” The simplest and easiest way to define a “How” Advantage and to capture it is to focus on being remarkable consistently. “Now, my definition of being remarkable is worthy of being remarked upon.” And so this whole idea of good — your...

X-ers are in a really interesting place in that they are in kind of what I call the X-er Squeeze. They’re a squeeze generation between these two massive groups: 80 million boomers and roughly 80 million millennials. A smaller group, they’ve been waiting in the wings of boomers, forever waiting to step up into these key leadership positions, and now they’ve got this wave of millennials who are like, “It’s my turn. I want a seat at the table.” And X-ers are kind of like, “Dude,...

For baby boomers, I would say a trend that I’m noticing is there is a group of boomers who have kind of fallen into this category of what i’ll call “They’ve retired without telling you.” They are not incredibly inspired right now, they’ve been doing a particular job for a period of time, they are kind of going through the motions, biding their time to be able to retire. “2008 slammed their retirement savings, so they are working longer than they thought were going to.”...

The bottom line in leadership isn’t how far we can advance ourselves but how far we can advance our teams. Think of the total number of team members working with you and ask yourself this question: How have you intentionally advanced those team members in helping them identify and pursue their personal, professional, and financial goals through performing at the highest level possible in your business? To help collectively create the highest magnitude of impact in your business for what you...
