The Definition Of Leadership Is Influence

[embed]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mura5N2QinU&t=1s[/embed] One of the books I teach out of is John C. Maxwell's Developing the Leader Within You 2.0. In the very first chapter, John defines leadership as "influence, nothing more, nothing less." He states that leadership has become so important in today's world. "Why has it become so important? Because people are recognizing that becoming a better leader changes lives. Everything rises and falls on leadership. The world becomes a better place when people become better leaders. Developing yourself to become the leader you have the potential to be will...Read More

Maxwell's book, The 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth, Growing Yourself Enables You To Grow Others, is all about inspiring others to their continued growth and contribution. John goes on to make some points by saying that "you can become a more generous and giving person, even if you already exhibit those qualities. However, to do that, you must be a growing and developing person." He has some suggestions that I highlight here: Be Grateful Put People First Don't Let Stuff Own You Don't Let People Own You Define...Read More

[embed]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mezn2kLDTvc[/embed] John Maxwell said something that was so powerful for me. He said, "the longer you wait to do something you should do now, the greater the odds that you will never actually do it." I really took that to heart and it helped me to change. Want to change?

Number three, we must be willing....Read More

Believe in yourself!" - John C. Maxwell. As John says in the video, intentions are worthless without action.

The real power is the decision and that comes from stepping out in faith, moving, acting, doing. It works out,...Read More
