Orrin Woodward is one of the world’s top 25 Leadership Gurus. I just read his blog on his newly released Resolved book. He is an incredible communicator and truly making a positive difference in many lives. Everyone could benefit from reading his inspiring Orrin Woodward Blog.
Most of us want the decisions we make in LIFE to have little downside risk, play it safe. Unfortunately, what used to be safe in the world of “making a living”, having a job, is now less secure. People debate returning to school for another degree to try to secure a source of income and are going through the process of weighing the pro’s and con’s of that adventure. What is the time commitment? How much will it cost? Is it really what I want to do for the next 25-30 years? Will there be a market when I complete my degree? It is important to consider the downside risk and the upside reward of our decisions. What decision can we make that can only help us? Orrin Woodward encourages everyone to dive into the best investment you can ever make – yourself. What is the upside reward of improving yourself, of becoming more knowledgeable to perform better? A more fulfilled LIFE. Many people I have spoken with who are on the journey of improving their relationships, finances, faith and leadership, have shared an increase feeling of self-worth. They feel they are now able to contribute more in helping the people around them. When a person has the feeling of accomplishment, they become more radiant, a light for others. For me, I know diving into the book Launching a Leadership Revolution helped me take practical steps in improving areas of my life, especially with relationships (which I continue to work on). What is the downside risk of improving yourself through quality information? People are already spending lots of money on entertaining themselves and this could be shifted to purchasing better information from credible sources. Less time for entertainment, some pain in facing truths about ourselves in how we see and treat others (which only will make us more compassionate) could be seen as downside risks. I believe the downside risk is so minimal and the upside rewards so inspiring that everyone should subscribe to LIFE information. The people we interact with are worth us becoming a better me. Have a Happy and Thankful Thanksgiving, Renee
What a great LIFE! Maybe not what I thought every day when things seemed to be out of control and I felt I didn’t have many choices but that is less often now. Thanks to Orrin Woodward and the team of leaders he is partnered with along with the leadership system they have developed, I feel much more in control of the things happening around me because I control me and my response. I’ve had the privilege to learn about myself, my attitude and how I look at things happening in my world which has helped tremendously. We have heard that some people look at LIFE through the perspective of the glass half empty and some with the glass half full. How do we choose? Frequently it is from what we saw modeled in our life, how others around us acted or maybe how we are wired. What I have learned is that however we arrived at that view, we do have the ability to change, to choose a different view. How and when? We choose when we decide we want our LIFE do be different, to have different results. Once we decide we want things to be different, we are then open to information that can help us change our thinking, changed thinking leads to changed actions to different results. How much better would your day go if you knew, and believed, that you are not a victim of the actions of others or the circumstances you are in? Instead, you are the driver and with the right information, road map, you can have the LIFE you dream of. I have been blessed to see this happen in the lives of many. They learned new information, made more informed decisions, took action and saw more prosperous results. The choice to have a different attitude and learning how you can do that, will bring some of the quickest changes for better results in your LIFE. George and Jill Guzzardo have been fantastic role models for me in this are of my life, leading me to the truthful information to help me learn and grow. I encourage you to dive into learning and the LIFE learning system has been a vehicle for many. Choose to have a great day, Renee
