I want you to be the first to have access to my upcoming book, “Uniquely You,” available for pre-order now. Here’s your look at the second chapter…
Part I: The Shortcut Myth
Since I launched my first company thirty-six years ago at age nineteen, I have had the privilege to consult and coach thousands of leaders—from small businesses to Fortune 500 CEOs, US Senators to faith leaders. The men and women with whom I have the pleasure to work believe that they were created to achieve greatness, but they are often exhausted, disenchanted and overwhelmed.
One reason for this stems from our quick-fix culture. It seems that every book, podcast, and TED video promises a magic bullet, a get-rich-quick scheme, or the recipe for secret sauce. And around every corner stands a fire-walking guru who promises to show you the shortcut to success—for a price. Leaders buy into these lies only to realize later that the promises were empty and the predictions didn’t pan out. But here’s the good news: You already have everything you need to succeed.
Part II: Ask Yourself This One Question
You possess within yourself everything necessary to live and lead with fearlessness and distinction. But you must muster the courage to excavate it, embrace it, and share it. Every person I have ever worked with has been given a set of stories, life experiences, and relationships, regardless of their age, gender, culture, or religion.
Each of these experiences, good and bad, is a gift from which the leader can learn. Our stories possess the power to grow us into better leaders than we might otherwise become. Those who embrace their unique stories have unique success. Ask yourself: What is your life trying to teach you?
Many professionals grow exhausted and disenchanted from chasing business gurus and quick-fix formulas. Rather than becoming knock-offs, we must learn to listen to the leadership lessons our lives have been trying to teach us. In “Uniquely You,” coming in 2019, I will share my personal journey, and how it led me to lead uniquely, with you. Preorder your copy today!
