Are we really pushing to create a new world? We are transitioning into a world that is so much different and we have to help create it. We can no longer sit back and hope someone else will change it for us or tell us how to act. We are now in a world where we have to think for our own and challenge ourselves to be different and innovative. We as people are getting smarter and learning to get information faster than ever before. We are not in a world where it is a win-lose situation anymore. People simply will not accept that as an option. I know I won’t accept that! The new world is about building relationships with people and making it a win-win situation. It is about helping out each other to strive toward a common goal. It is a world where big things are meant to happen and if we come together to strive toward a common goal everyone wins.
Ask yourself what are your beliefs on what success is? Ask yourself what is it that gives your life meaning and how can you start doing that everyday? Everyone was born with gifts and talents and we have to use those to our advantage and then find another person who can enhance those even more. And when we find another person who can enhance our talents we keep finding more and then we set a goal as a team. Come up with a vision and do not be afraid to share it and think big. This new world gives us every opportunity to share how we feel and what our thoughts and dreams are in so many new ways. We have blogging, facebook, twitter, websites you name it and we can get the message out. The question is are you afraid to let people know your vision? Do you think people will make fun of you for having dreams? I have news for you those people that are making fun are not living, they are dying. They are dying to have the guts to go out there and be themselves and get what it is they want because they do not believe in themselves.
Now take those questions and apply it to your team that you lead. Gather your team up and do the exercise of asking everyone what it is they want to achieve in their life? What are there biggest goals that if they achieved them would make their life. Create an atmosphere of ownership and vision. Why just have one leader spreading the vision when the power is in teamwork and you can have many leaders in your organization. Train all your people to think for themselves and be entrepreneurs. Be bold and take your organization to the next level and do not be the same as every other company or team. Do not fall for the trap of trying to do the same as everyone else to avoid being embarrassed or ridiculed. As a matter of fact you should push the envelope and see how many people you can get to criticize what you are doing. If you have a lot of people who think you are crazy or risky for what you are doing and trying then you are doing the right thing. You are on the path that everyone is afraid of and THEN you can create a different world. The world can be yours if you decide to make it your world.
There is a reason why the people who are on your team are on your team. They are attracted to the leader that you are and can see that you have ambition. They can see you believe that a different world can be created. Empower your team by asking for their opinion and of course share your opinion so that you guys know what the end goal is and then ask yourself this question, how can we put those ideas together to create our world? The ideal world.
Be a visionary, be bold, and do not let anyone or any circumstance stop you because we are the leaders who will create this different world, we are the lucky ones, we have a chance to make a difference. Let’s Do It!!
