Effective Leadership Begins With Purpose
Many times when we have difficulty in finding clarity in setting direction, or definition in our goals, it is not because of a lack of planning. It is a lack of purpose.
Our PURPOSE in life is to fully express who we are, who we (Be) right now. As we begin to do this, we benefit both ourselves and others by becoming A ROLE MODEL of who we truly are in such a way that it provides an example for all those in our lives; inspiring, empowering, enabling, encouraging them, and thereby making a real difference in the world.
If we can truly ‘get it,’ at a profound level, that we are endowed by our Maker with unlimited power and ability, we will accept the grand Purpose God has for us and we will create grand results. We’ll contribute far more by expressing our true, natural, ever-present magnificence, than we ever could by trying to improve on ourselves, trying to become someone we are not.
The truth is, who we are makes a far more significant difference than what we do. For instance, being a role model of honesty and integrity for our children will be of far greater value than years of working to feed them. We undoubtedly need to do both, but our living examples of love, integrity, and spirituality will ultimately be remembered as the greater service.
So, for any of us to maximize our personal effectiveness and contribution in life, we must know at a profound level 1) who we are, 2) what we have been called on to exemplify, and 3) to whom we will model it.
In four steps, the Personal Purpose Process guides you in defining your purpose, and also offers the following:
- Prioritization of the Five Key Aspects of Life
- A Personal Purpose Statement
- A five-year plan, that if executed, virtually guarantees the successful attainment of your purpose.
- A one-year plan to help you take the first steps.
The Personal Purpose Process is free of charge and designed to be completed on your own. However, if you would like assistance as you walk through this process, just contact us here.
“Being busy does not always mean real work. The object of all work is production or accomplishment and to either of these ends there must be forethought, system, planning, intelligence, and honest purpose, as well as perspiration. Seeming to do is not doing."
