Peg moments are those times in life when other people have used verbal elephant training to tie you to your past. You don’t have to accept their pegs.
An elephant is trained from birth with a single peg. Throughout life each of us will likely receive dozens if not hundreds of pegs from other people. These “verbal pegs” come in the form of criticism, judgment, accusations and condemnation.
When someone judges your talent as a seedling against someone else’s at full maturity rather than seeing it as potential, the might peg you as a failure.
When someone declares you to be “just like ________” (insert name of someone hateful or unappreciated) the might peg you as an outcast.
When someone cannot see your positive attributes, your character strengths and your willingness to do good, they might peg you as a waste of time.
You are free to pull up those pegs and move on without them.
Leaders should work hard to not place pegs in the lives of their followers or team. They should also be on guard to help pull up any pegs which are revealed.

Day after day I meet people who are struggling just to make ends meet. They are adrift in this vast sea of humanity holding on to their job, their family, their home, and their car with all they've got. They see their life experiences and education as the last hope to find their purpose and identity. They gather, fill and stuff all the money they can into every opportune investment. Yet they are empty, frustrated, angry and just plain fed up.
We have all experienced that moment; when we find yourself stuck in traffic, yelling at random strangers to do what they wish they could... but can't... GO!
The idea that life can be better than it is today is like the flame of a candle fighting for all its worth to stand against the tempest.
We all want a better life.
Even when life is good, we want more.
That idea, that flame, is the hope that lives in the hearts and minds of all of us. Should that flame be extinguished, hope itself may well go with it. It is the rut of hopelessness that traps many would be shining stars and buries that glow from the sight of the world. It is the rut of hopelessness that extinguishes that flame.
Lives that would have been a beacon to the wandering are lost at sea themselves. Inspirations of success that would have been the voices crying out to all who suffer are hidden away in their own stale lives, they cannot share who they are or what the world needs from them.
It is my passion to help you find your purpose. I want to see you become successful, but more than that to be free!
Without vision people perish.
Without vision, we seem to be lost, mind numb robots following the herd into the abyss that is everyday life. We do not live intentionally without a vision for our future. We do not live passionately without a vision for our future. We do not live productively without a vision for our future. We certainly cannot lead without a vision for our future and a vision for the future of those we lead.
This audio course will inspire and instruct you to create a vision which will become a significant driving force in your life.
