I just finished a packed week of leadership lessons at the International Maxwell Certification event in Orlando, FL.
Spending time with a group of people with similar values is an experience that can’t be described. I have plenty of notes to process but I wanted to share some of the notes I have from the several sessions I attended.
- The awareness of knowing what’s the next step doesn’t really come up when I am trying to find the next step.
- There’s a part that knows we can do it and a part of us that knows we can’t do it. The question is which one are you going to let run your life?
- “Most people surrender what they want for what’s familiar.” – Paul Martinelli
- Get really really busy following your dreams so you don’t even know how uncomfortable you are.
- There’s no difference between good intentions and bad intentions except good intentions make me a nicer person.
- Procrastination never lets you get to the door of opportunity. – John C. Maxwell
- You have plenty of experiences regardless of how plain your life may be.
- “Vision is what you see; culture is what you are doing.” – John C. Maxwell
- Cooperation is “Let’s work together”. Collaboration is “I want to work together.” – John C. Maxwell
- “When you value people you have more desire to connect with them than correct them.” – John C. Maxwell
These are just a few of the notes I have. Yet there’s one question that stuck out with me the most and it was said by Ivan Misner, founder of BNI:
The most important part of your story is ‘whose story are you in?’ – Ivan Misner
I’ll probably blog about this one some more in the coming days. For now, let me know which phrase triggers the most thoughts for you.
