Elevating your leadership | “I don’t care that they stole my idea…I care that they don’t have any of their own.” – Nikola Tesla

Learn, test, teach and share

Surround yourself with those who are more experienced than you are; with those who are smarter than you are; with those who have accomplished more than you have up until today. Learn, test, practice, experiment and then pass that knowledge along to those who are coming up alongside of you or after you as the whole point of leadership is to develop more leaders and help others be successful.

Trust your experience, you are ready

Trust your experience, you are ready. You didn’t come this far to only come this far. Believe in yourself, move forward and take that first step into the unknown.

What do you have to lose? Take a shot!

If it’s important to you, do it in person

When dealing with major projects, services, contracts…save time from going back and forth and eliminate any confusion by getting straight to the point, in person.

Limit unnecessary emails and calls and get to the root cause of the issue and work on solutions together.

You can’t please everyone

You can’t please everyone, so stop trying to do so. Live your life to the fullest and go after what you want to become and who do you want to be to your family. Along the way, don’t worry about what others may be saying about you, especially when they are not brave enough to say it to you directly.

Don’t forget, you have one life! Live it.

Refuse to settle for average

Refuse to settle for average, for being average, for anything that places you right in the middle of the road. You are better than that, you are capable of achieving more and all of that while helping others along the way. This journey begins with confidence and believing in yourself, all else is to follow.

Good luck and go for it! Now.

Quitting vs. wasting time

Quitting vs. wasting time, do you know the difference? All major accomplishments require commitment, focus, attention and energy and above all, hard work. If you truly want something, quitting is never one of the options.

Hire the person, not their employer

Way too frequently I have seen people get mesmerized by a brand or a logo from where a particular candidate is coming from and frequently those hires don’t work out long-term. Yes, for high-level positions you may need some “sizzle” and somebody to come from a large organization, but please when you’re hiring and building your teams focus on the person you are hiring and attracting not their current or previous employer. After all, you are getting this person not their previous employer.

Opinions of others

Opinions of others and why they don’t matter as much as most might think.

Money doesn’t change people

Money and power don’t change people, they expose them for what they have been all along.

You decide when to quit

You decide when to quit, not someone else. You live your life according to your terms, norms and plans, not according to the opinions and ideas of others.
