The LIFE business launched with the purpose of providing world-class leadership materials to business executives, entrepreneurs, corporate climbers, pastors, church leaders, administrators, community service leaders, public servants, teachers, parents, and anybody who will find themselves in a position to lead. My friend and co-author Orrin Woodward (one of the world’s Top 25 leadership gurus) recently said, “When it gets right down to it, leadership is for everyone. Nobody will be able to make their way through life without needing the draw upon the toolbox of leadership.” Sadly, many people lack these tools and therefore get to live with the consequences of being ill-equipped. These consequences include missed opportunities, unfulfilled career aspirations, financial woes, and broken relationships.
Although leadership is for everyone, not everyone will equip themselves. Therefore, it may be helpful to consider a list of people for which the LIFE materials don’t apply. LIFE leadership training materials are NOT for those who:
1. Refuse to take 100% personal responsibility for their results in life.
2. Would rather fix blame than fix problems.
3. Want an easy, comfortable life without having to earn it.
4. Already know everything and are therefore unteachable.
5. Have character issues they refuse to address.
People who fit these descriptions need not apply. Again, to quote Orrin Woodward, “LIFE is for those who earnestly seek a better life, are interested in the strenuous process of personal growth, are driven to succeed in significant ways, and are committed to a life of excellence for a higher purpose.”
Mediocrity is for the many.
Leadership is for the few.
Everyone will be called upon to lead – few will be ready.
LIFE is for those few.
