LIFE Leadership Matters
The LIFE Leadership company has just completed its second full calendar year, and again, we are very pleased with our growth and expanding impact. We have again experienced double digit growth (the exact numbers will be reported soon by the office) and reached into new markets. As always, our focus is not merely on helping people succeed, but in helping them matter. It is no secret that my favorite quote is one attributed to the famous preacher and evangelist D.L. Moody, “Our greatest fear should not be that we won’t succeed, but that we will succeed at something that doesn’t matter.” Every time I read that sentence I am refocused and recommitted to making sure that everything we do helps people transcend success and focus much more importantly upon significance.
Life Leadership Dreams Big but Focuses Small
In one way, this could really just be a bunch of words. But for those of us who labor behind the scenes, this desire to matter, to truly make a difference, is a driving factor in our work. Someone once asked me when I was going to stop working so hard. I am always surprised at this type of inquiry, as what I do doesn’t seem like work. In fact, when you love what you do, and when you see every day that what you do really matters in the lives of people, you can’t help but work! In fact, your work becomes the most fun fun there is! For me, the point isn’t to get more time off, but to get more of my time to be on, on the mark, that is. Meaning, I want more and more of my time to count, and in the most meaningful ways. When I take time off, it’s only so my time on is even better! (That was the point I was attempting to make in my book, A Month of Italy).
Overall, the way we apply all this high-sounding talk at LIFE Leadership is to dream big, and then focus small. What that means to me is to keep an enormous, overriding vision of where we can help people go, followed by a strenuous mastery of the details required to make it happen.
My friends and co-founders in this endeavor, Orrin Woodward, Tim Marks, Claude Hamilton, Bill Lewis, George Guzzardo, Dan Hawkins, and Rob Hallstrand are all aligned in common purpose to continue to make LIFE Leadership something that truly helps people lead more meaningful lives.
Life Leadership will continue to improve!
As a result of this tireless labor of love that we are all engaged in, we have several very exciting new things happening in 2014! Among these are international expansion, new product rollouts, a massively increased compensation package, increased One Time Cash Awards, improved data management and “dashboard” designs for field leaders, simplified back office operations, smart phone apps, voice communication systems, and much more!
So hang on tight for an even more exciting year than our first two!
I truly hope you like all that we deliver this year, and that our materials and events enable you to live the life you’ve always wanted!
Remember: It’s not as important to succeed as it is to matter, and you’ll likely accomplish the former by shooting for the latter!
What a great and exciting post, we can’t wait to see what’s ahead for us! And I can tell you, for what it’s worth, you and Terri matter a great deal to us and have made a huge difference in our lives and we hope to make a difference, greatly due to you, in the lives of those around us.
