Being a NEW Power Player in the Life Business and be part of the Centurion compensated community

I had #FUN last Saturday at the #LIFE Seminar in Punta Gorda, Florida, crossing the stage as a New Brand Power Player. The success is in the journey but also the feeling is in the peer recognition.

Thanks to PC leadership guru Orrin Woodward and Roudtable leaders Jerry & Polly Harteis, and all support TEAM with the Hendons, the Raphaels, the Delpes…

We are The Centurions TRIBE en route to one million. Let me share with you my Power Player Recognition  moment.

Leadership guru Orrin Woodward invites leaders to build other leaders

“You can tell the size of the #leader by the size of the leaders  he has around him. Good leaders have good followers, but great leaders have great leaders around them.”, leadership guru Orrin Woodward wrote in a recent post on his blog .

When the right people are on the bus, as Jim Collins would say, then it’s just a matter of determining which direction the leadership team desires to go. Indeed, what is so great, yet at the same time challenging, in today’s economy is that technology keeps changing the rules of the game. Nonetheless, the best leadership team will adjust the quickest and win in today’s marketplace. Here is a video on #leadership that Orrin Woodward  did at a recent  #LIFE Open meeting.

For your personal leadership self-development, Take the 90 day Mental Fitness Challenge

The Mental Fitness Challenge (MFC) is here, and it is an adventure like no other. I challenge you to challenge yourself  by taking the 90 day Mental Fitness Challenge.

Developed by seven of the country’s top leadership gurus, nationally acclaimed speakers, and personal transformation experts, with NY Times and Wall Street Journal best-selling authors Orrin Woodward and Chris Brady leading the way (visit their highly acclaimed blogs here: (http://orrinwoodwardblog.com and www.chrisbrady.com ), this program will awaken your mind and change your life.

The MFC is a rare, comprehensive personal development program that provides you with the opportunity to “Live the Life You’ve Always Wanted.

Consisting of a variety of new materials combined with updates of materials that have proven timeless and effective year after year, the MFC format is presented as three modules – one for each month – that are packaged in stylish, protective casing. The MFC is strategically and effectively designed to exercise your mind and teach you success thinking in the thirteen aspects of life covered in Orrin Woodward’s book RESOLVED: 13 Resolutions for LIFE. For 90 days, a mere three months of your life, you have the chance to make an investment in yourself that offers a lifetime of returns.

Participating in a challenge or boot camp is usually done with the goal of losing weight, toning one’s body, and/or building muscle. In the bigger picture, it’s about feeling good and gaining a sense of accomplishment. These programs are great, and we highly recommend them to anyone; however, the one failing component of these programs is that they are temporary. Once the typical challenge or boot camp ends, you’re on your own—an invisible but powerful sensation. For some, the challenge may be the spark that leads to a life changed forever. However, for the vast majority, it was an undertaking that required all the motivation they could muster just to make it through, so continuing to follow the program is highly unlikely.

We invite you to take a 90-Day Challenge that never ends. Sure, the Challenge itself will only take 90 days to complete, but unlike a new diet or exercise boot camp, the transformation achieved is permanent. The Mental Fitness Challenge (MFC) will certainly require work, dedication, and persistence. We do not promise instant results or miracles of any kind. But we do promise that if you faithfully follow the program, your thought process will be renewed.

This program is a journey for the heart and an awakening for the mind. Shortly after beginning the MFC, you will start to see yourself in a new light and will approach life differently. The founders of the MFC have mentored thousands of men, women, entrepreneurs and couples and have witnessed the amazing potency of these materials.

Consider this: What did your life look like 90 days ago? One hundred eighty days ago? A year ago? Notwithstanding life changes involving loved ones, jobs, or homes, how does your life look today compared to then? Now, ask yourself this: How COULD your life look 90 days from now? Imagine the possibilities, and then take the Challenge and find out! For every failing marriage, frustrated parent, hopeless addict, bankrupt home, or faith-starved man or woman, the MFC has the capacity to teach, motivate, and assist one with implementing the necessary changes in the right areas of life, the impact of which will last a lifetime.

Hard work and Smart work!

I had an opportunity to listen to leadership guru Chris Brady, co-author with Orrin Woodward of the best seller book: Launching a leadership revolution. His main topic was about hard work and smart work and how to face obstacles and challenges in journeying towards your vision.

You and I will always have to work hard if we want to accomplish something. But we need to make sure we’re working hard at something that really works.

Being busy is not enough. Even ants are being. We have to make sure we’re busy at something that is significant and worthy of our most precious asset which is our time.

Brady mentioned Ronald Reagan who was very effective as an old president. He had a systematic way to move toward his goal. His motto was : Be sure of what your main things are and surround yourself with people who can do what they have called to do.

Brady also mentioned his business partner Orrin Woodward who has a systematic way to keep his focus under pressure and chaotic moments. Woodward always thinks about the big picture, to go beyond the present moment and to make sure good times always follow bad times.

What Brady teaches in this address is for us to understand that there’s always a smart way to do what we do. And we should work hard at the beginning to find that smart way. Hard work is not a long term sustainable advantage. But, it is required impulse from time to time to get the machine running.

Proper work, he said, is a stage between being busy and idle . We need to be busy time to time but we also need to rest and rest means restoration to rebuild ourselves, to rebuild the nerves ending and to start fresh.

Let me share Brady’s video with you. This was at a TEAM leadership seminar. You may copy it and paste it to your browser.
