Nick Vujicic was born with no arms or legs but has emerged as a leader and speaker with 40 million followers , who travels the world impacting millions of lives. The thing I love most about him is his heart and his radical passion to give back. His legacy – is changing lives.
Nick is a reminder to each one of us that it doesn’t matter what your shortcomings are. Whether you were raised rich or poor, with a disability or not, your struggle is the fuel that can help someone through theirs.
Some of the greatest leaders in the world come from impoverished circumstances or backgrounds of abuse and struggle. I’ve found them to be quite diverse and fascinating as leaders who can courageously overcome any obstacle placed in front of them.
What’s your leadership legacy?
Don’t allow the residue or limitations of the past impact your future. It’s all part of the process.

One of the things that CEO, strategist and Coach Tony Jeary always inspires me to do is focus on our HLAs.
HLA means High Leverage Activity.
This one tip can literally accelerate and transform your goals this quarter.
Here’s some tips to get clarity:
#1: Identify your HLA.
What is that one activity that if you laser focus on it will leverage everything else you do? What is it that is most important to you in this first quarter of 2017?
#2: Block time on your calendar right now, each and every day, to focus on your HLA.
The distinction is that instead of focusing on your daily activities and meetings you are actually providing energy and fuel into this one priority.
Tony learned a lot of what he teaches from his mentors. I recall meeting Zig Ziglar and a lot of other great minds through Tony. Today he coaches some of the world’s top CEOs including the CEOs of Ford and Walmart. We have worked on several projects with his clients and his concept of gaining clarity helped me compress my time frame on writing a book.
To your legacy,
Seeing the images of beaches and smiling faces this week all over Facebook reminds me to look you in the eyes and ask you the important question.
Why not now?
Why can’t every week be just like spring break?
The truth is, it can.
Every day can be just like spring break.
Sure, there’s some people who receive this message who have already cracked the code. They have no limits, no bed time, no setting the alarm for 5 am to make a long commute they hate to work under fluorescent lights.
But for many, the daily grind continues. Stress, overworking, seeing the kids between 6 and 8pm – two hours a day with the ones they love most. Two hours a day with humans who aren’t going to be in the house for very long.
Why do people do this? I’ll never know.
Because there’s a better way.
I don’t know what your exit strategy is.
I left the corporate world 15 years ago and stepped into a whole new world. The world of freedom, of owning my own day, time, and schedule. It’s radically changed the outcome for our family.
Why not invest in yourself and your family today in order to make a significant life change?
Join us for The Conversation and we will talk about how you can ignite change. Let’s create your exit strategy. Click Here, and sign up today, to join us for 1 night in a forest – on Oct 6 in Dallas.
To your Legacy,
I was asked recently to be in a video with Trent Shelton, who has millions of followers. He’s a spoken word artist, and his audience is diverse.
I was acting in this video,
(which isn’t really my gifting, to say the least) but I said yes to the adventure – and spent a day filming.
As I listened to Trent’s words over, and over and over and over, and over again, (And then over once more! in take after take)
I saw my little boy across the room, watching and absorbing like a sponge, and I couldn’t help but feel as if that the day was meant to be.
How can your brand and business benefit from cross pollination with others outside your industry?
In my mind, words are words. No matter how you like them delivered – in a book or online or in this video – words are currency.
Watch it and let me know what you think!
