The more complex a problem, the higher the quality of the solution is needed. Quality always translates into reliability. Once you can rely on the solution, your ability to create and be creative is multiplied. When situations (people, processes, tech, machines, relationships, etc..) are complex, you need to first be able to trust your solution. Once the trust is in place, then you can innovate and optimize. Quality translates into peace of mind and enables growth in all areas of life. Don’t settle for less than the best. Both in business or in life, you deserve the right to quality in order to drive growth and solve problems.
Remember, your happiness and your success are not actually about you. Your fulfillment is always found when your purpose is aligned with your actions, and those actions are focused outward rather than inward based on the impact you have on others. Your impact is your ability to be useful. The more useful you become, the more fulfillment you will achieve.
Solving problems is the best way to win someone’s trust and create reliance. When you can first erase their pain then help them achieve their dreams, your presence will always be wanted. Helping others is how you enable the relationship to grow. Serving others encourages connection. Solving problems makes you wanted.
Greed comes in many forms. It is not just about material possessions. You can be greedy with or for love, greedy with or for approval, greedy with your time, greedy with knowledge — anything you desire (value) and work to attain more than you work for and desire for your relationships becomes negative greed. Greed kills real relationships.
Words don’t answer questions. Actions do.
Transparency builds rewarding relationships. The more you hide, the less fulfilled you will feel, the less growth you will achieve, and the more worried you will always be. When you are open and honest about who you are and what you do, the right type of people will be attracted to you. When you are fully transparent there is no need for the deceptive masks of public presentation. You don’t need the facade of perfection. If you accept yourself, then others can finally accept you as well.
Leadership is more than vision and direction.
Leadership is more than managing key performance indicators.
Leadership is more than driving results.
Leadership is more than strategy.
Leadership is more than showing up.
Leadership is more than empower others.
Leadership is more… So just keep giving more.
The best way to build a team is the build-up the individuals in that team. Focus on the person and the group will take care of itself.
Your community is based on your personal level of care for them and your disregard for validation from them.
You will always succeed with others if you work to understand them, help them find a better way, and then enable them with the power to achieve their dreams.
