Principles of Greatness – Take Responsibility – Part 1

Know that all of you have greatness within...

I must take responsibility for my actions, my well-being and the attainment of my maximum potential.
 
Focus on what you can change and not on what you can’t. Work on improving yourself instead of focusing on trying to change others. Act on your potential to learn and grow and start sharing your experiences, knowledge, and insights with others. Initiate change; condition your mind to be flexible, and accept responsibility for your actions and behavior.
 
We need to be mindful each day of the fact that we are responsible for our actions. We can choose to reinvent ourselves; true leaders lead themselves first. People look at
your behavior in two ways; you are either an example or you’re a warning. If you want things to change, start now. It doesn’t matter if you don’t have a plan, let alone a perfect plan. What matters is getting to it and executing. Everything else will fall into place.
 
If your community has a problem, schedule a meeting with concerned neighbors. If your workplace has an issue, gather for coffee with like-minded colleagues. If your family has a conflict, open new lines of communication. Your efforts may not lead to a viable plan of action, but you’ll never come close to developing a solution unless you begin.
 
Right now… ask yourself…”What is my intention every day?”

For over 32 years I have been in the personal and professional development business arena. Myself along with my brother David promoted some of America’s largest seminars putting over 250,000 butts in seats for some of the greatest thought leaders in the world like; Tony Robbins, Brian Tracy, Les Brown, General Norman Schwarzkopf, Pat Riley, Lou Holtz, Art Williams, Harvey McKay, Chicken Soup for the Soul Author, Mark Victor Hanson, Captain Gerald Coffee, Paul Zane Pilzer, Dr. Dennis Waitley, and many, many others…

I have delivered over 7,200 presentations – training over 56,000 sales people and managers, I have made over 12,500 coaching calls, In addition, I co-charged our B2B marketing teams setting over 72,000 appointments. On the Real Estate and Mortgage side of my business … I was a recruiter and trainer for one of South Florida’s largest real estate and mortgage companies, where we were closing over 200 transactions per month and a Branch Owner and Trainer for one of the nations top Net Branch Mortgage Company’s training over 1400 Branch Owners and mortgage loan officers and personally along with my team, closing over 1100 mortgage loans!

I have many proud and blessed moments in my life and career, however, two that were really exciting stick out for me…one was as National Sales Manager for Tony Robbins taking a sales division of one of his companies from $3.9 million to over $8.75 million in sales in less than 13 months! The other was having the great comedian Jay Leno in my comedy club back in 1981!
