"Leaders who don't take the time to unplug from the world and plug into their own resources will burn out!"
DOWN TIME AND UPDATES. LEADERS NEED BOTH.
Leaders who don't take the time to unplug from the world and plug into their own resources will burn out!
Overwhelm, depressions, anxiety, stress related medical issues are all imminent when leaders try to burn the candle at both ends. At best you will be running on empty, not giving 100% because you are so depleted to begin with. At worst, your work, your relationships, your health will suffer and the end result could be an end to your career, your marriage or your life.
This is serious business! It is easy to see and ignore the signs. Like a digital device with a low battery or outdated software, glitches become common place. Exhaustion leads to frustration. Depression leads to isolation. Slow responses lead to no responses. Perhaps you have experienced that frustration with your device? You get so angry to begin to press the buttons harder, then poke then with strong intent, eventually you're basically STABBING THE SCREEN, as if the device will catch on to your anger and act differently. NOPE! Not gonna happen.
Your leadership will suffer similar behavior. Your team will experience the frustration and anger when you're not operating optimally. Your productivity and progress will slow and the quality of your output will suffer dramatically.
Take a TIME OUT NOW. Get a day away. Go fishing, golfing, glamping, bird watching, surfing, cruising, whatever you need to do. Unwind, refocus, reconnect with your vision, your purpose and your goals. You cannot do this life alone, but a burned out leader will have limited resources and burned out relationships. Protect them now.

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.
