I’m back from a number of high intensity events and ready to get back to serving you.
If I were to summarize the last 3 weeks it would be this one quote, “When it’s time to light the fire it’s too late to gather the sticks”
When I decided to invest in the John Maxwell training, I remember thinking that it would be the perfect addition to what I love to do-- help others succeed. It would take hours and hours of grueling work to learn and achieve the level of proficiency my clients desired. So many times, I just wanted to quit. I didn’t even know anyone in the area that taught leadership or communication skills. There was no one addressing the deeper issue of mindset roadblocks and how to overcome them.
But I continued every day --“gathering the sticks” – because what I really wanted to help people succeed.
Purpose is a driving force. There is no business or job that you will love in every way. It doesn’t exist. Jobs change, careers change, life circumstances change, but purpose…that never changes.
When you find your passion. Your deep-down desires. That is empowering.
Anyway, I digress… again.
This last 3 weeks the fire went from burning to blazing and it is an exciting ride.
Live2Lead was a huge success and we are still getting positive feedback and results from the events. I received a call yesterday from the local Sheriff. He wants me to train 60 of his top management personnel about leadership. This is a huge opportunity to have a positive effect on the entire community! The local paper devoted almost an entire page to our event! Click here to see it.
In Orlando last week I met with a number of high-level John Maxwell coaches and we began a strategy to bring leadership in my local schools. We are contacting 30 schools this week to bring free small and large leadership events.
My college contacted me to train their professors in leadership and communication!
And I'm still gathering sticks...This week I am in training to become a certified Edward Lowe PeerSpectives roundtable facilitator.
This exciting adventure started years ago when I held a dream. I don’t know what your dream is today but I do know this, if you have one, then you are equipped to fulfil it. In equipped I mean you have the capacity to accomplish it. Don’t lose your dream. Write it down and hang it up. Then start gathering your sticks. Get the skills you will need to fulfill that dream.
Don’t stop gathering the sticks because one day it will be time to light the fire…and when that time comes you will be ready.
