John Wooden was one of John C. Maxwell’s prized mentors. He remembers a story about how he was a true leader by exhibiting poise in all situations. He said about his players that “they are going to receive from me what they need if I have poise.” He summarized it this way: “A champion always exhibits poise.”

In John C. Maxwell’s book, Developing The Leader Within You 2.0, John writes in chapter two about priorities and there is much to be learned in this chapter to assist us all. He said, “nobody escapes the pressures of modern life, and because we all deal with demands, deadlines, and difficulties, we can get confused when it comes to our priorities.” He makes some great points like these:

  • Most people overestimate the importance of most things.
  • Having too many priorities paralyzes people.
  • When small demands are given too much attention, big problems arise.
  • Making everything a priority means nothing is a priority.
  • Sometimes it takes an emergency to force people to prioritize.

Good day to you! I’m Bart Nollenberger, and one of my most profound mentors is and has been John C. Maxwell and others in the John Maxwell Team. This is why I chose to become an Executive Director as part of The John Maxwell Team. I have the privilege of offering my services as a mentor to many and one of the easiest ways this is done is through MasterMind Groups.

I do many MasterMind Group sessions on The 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth, Developing the Leader Within You 2.0, and many other training opportunities created by John C. Maxwell and The John Maxwell Team. See more at the link below and get in touch with me regarding the next session, or any other of the many John Maxwell Team coaching and mentoring that I offer.
