A Great Leader Is Like A Mental Chef
WHAT LEADERS DO: An analogy.
While we all enjoy the feeling of eating a good robust meal, we don’t all have to time prepare one.
If you consider the time, effort and expense of harvesting the meats or proteins, the veggies, the fruits, the grains necessary to complete your nutritional food pyramid for one meal, your mind would already be exhausted.
But you still must cut and slice and dice and season and cook or chill this harvest to create a “dish”.
Seriously, it is the reason fast food or restaurants stay in business. WHO HAS TIME FOR ALL THAT?!?
Someone must gather, prepare and deliver what keeps us alive if we are going to be productive in so many other areas of life.
A leader must be able to gather, harvest, process, prepare and deliver insight, information, education, expectation and more. If your team is busy “getting the real work done” you should be busy preparing the “meal of personal growth” for them.
Gather the data, harvest the best ideas, season then with synthesized understanding, marinate them in useful application and deliver them in delectable bite sized morsels to be devoured on the fly. Lead like a mental, emotional chef.
That is the role of a leader.

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.
