There is no dispute that the greatest coach of all time was legendary John Wooden, UCLA Men’s Basketball Coach. One of the principles that John Wooden followed which created the great success he had as a college basketball coach was really simple; he made others better through his personal service to those he coached.
One of the principles that all great leaders follow is to serve those they lead and personally help them be their best. In order to help others be their best you have to be your best. To be your best is a life long quest of development, learning and working toward your dream.
Undeniable today, John Maxwell is one of the world’s best leaders and leadership coaches. He said,
“How do you define leadership? What is a leader? How does leadership work? Unfortunately, people’s usual answers to those questions are not very helpful. Some people identify leadership with obtaining a leadership position. But I’ve known bad leaders who had good positions and good leaders who had no position at all. Haven’t you? Other people say of leadership, “I can’t describe it, but I know it when I see it.” While that may be true, it doesn’t help anyone learn how to lead. The conclusion I came to early on is that leadership is influence. If people can increase their influence with others, they can lead more effectively.” Source: Maxwell, John C..

My Objective Coaching You
The primary objective of coaching is to allow you to believe;
The best is already inside you.
Many coaches attempt to make a clone of them self when in reality your greatest is just being you.
Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You. Dr. Seuss
Success Defined Only By You
Some questions to ponder as you dwell on what success means to you.
What is your personal definition of success?
Peace of mind obtained in self satisfaction that you did the best you’re capable of; John Wooden’s definition
How are you equal with everyone?
We are all equal in the ability to be the best we can be given our personal situations, talents, strengths and weaknesses.
Why must you have faith?
What would it feel like to never worry about being a success?
Why is leadership development so important in building a large and duplicating network marketing organization?
Make each day your masterpiece! You can be the best you can be and move forward even if just a little each day. Only you can determine if you had a masterpiece day.
One person was quoted as saying, “Everything I could do, I did. I accept the outcome because I did everything I could do, today.”
You’ve heard, “There are no shortcuts to success.”
I’ve always said, “The fundamental of all success is to be your best inside. What are the fundamentals and principles to make you your best? They are probably different for each person and therefore a comparison of success is not wise.”
Perhaps this analogy might shed light on serving others and helping them be their best.
If you had an empty vessel you’d not be able to fill the vessel of another person who’s lamp was cold. You could only fill from your vessel that which you possessed.
It takes a great deal of courage and work to become a great leader because it’s a lifetime quest to continue to fill your vessel. Many people I’ve talked to suggest that completely filling your vessel is impossible. Why would it be impossible? It’s not impossible because as your vessel begins to be filled, the container get’s larger and thus can never overspill! A larger container would allow more to be filled in the vessel.
What fundamentals are missing from your life?
What level of hope to you possess about your ability to be a great professional with a great home business?
The joy is in the journey. If you’re only thinking about winning or what you deem being a success would be, you miss the opportunities to grow. We get distracted by the final outcome and miss the growth experiences that the journey teaches you.
The focus each day therefore is not to obtain the end but to prove the quest is worthy of your best self.
