A part of the excitement and joy in the daily life of great leaders is their continuing drive to go beyond the familiarity, peace and quiet of their comfort zone to stretch themselves to find something more – to do what they haven’t done before. John Maxwell calls this their challenge zone. In his book, Leadershift, Maxwell suggests that there is yet another leap that great leaders take, one into a creative zone in which they “tend to think things that they never thought before.” It is this magical, sometimes daring moment, when great leaders move from their dreams to new being and doing.
“The only impossible journey is the one you never begin,” wrote Tony Robbins. May you fill this new year with the excitement of leadershifts in which you go far beyond the self-imposed limits of your challenge zone and venture into the unexplored possibilities of your beautiful being and doing. Make this your mantra. Share it with those whom you touch and serve that they, too, discover and realize their fullest potential. Together, your dreams of today will be the realities of tomorrow.
Miguel Torres tells great leaders: “Greatness is a journey that begins with the impossible and turns into the unforgettable.” May you always choose to turn perceived impossible journeys into unforgettable, beautiful life-changing adventures.
Have a beautiful day and a magnificent week!!!
