Key Ideas

What Gives Your Life Meaning 

People with a sense of purpose are focused, self-motivated and unable to be deterred or distracted from what they believe is their goal in life. This sense of meaning and purpose informs them of what to focus on and what’s getting in the way.

Continually Bettering Yourself

Know that you are not perfect and that your knowledge has gaps, biases, limitations, and prejudices.

Innovators who positively shape the world come from a “beginner’s mind” and a loving, compassionate heart – with an openness to see, learn, and experience new things on the way to being a better servant of the world.

Engaging In Mutually-Beneficial Ways

Understand the power of relationships, connection, and engage with the world openly. Don't be afraid to share your knowledge and talents.

Know that positive, supportive and authentic relationships are the foundational building blocks to anything you want to achieve.

Investing In The Future

When issues appear, try to get to their roots, understand the contributing factors, and arrive at new solutions.

Observe gaps and mistakes in common thinking and behavior, and trust yourself in your belief that it’s time to push the boundaries of what’s accepted.

Embracing Critique

You don’t need to be “right” –  try to grow and be more effective. For that to occur, accept critique and challenges.

Be strong and confident in the face of opposition, yet know how to integrate constructive feedback to your work and ideas. 

Spread What You Know

Share and teach what you’ve learned. Don’t see your knowledge as a commodity to sell – see it as information that has to be shared with the world for its betterment.

Uplift Others 

Inspire when you obtain amazing results in your work without abusing others. Be happy to help and support others, and your positive energy will enrich the lives of those they connect with.

Help others to grow and walk away from opportunities that will be hurtful to others. 

View The Journey as The Goal

Don’t take shortcuts or go for the quick answer. Don’t view goals or outcomes as destinations. See that learning and experiencing, are the end goal, and those never end. Embrace failure as “information” that guides you. 

Use Power And Influence Well

Understand the widespread influence you have and its effect.

Be careful and judicious with your words, actions, and behaviors. Operate with heart, and care deeply about your leadership and communication process and style, and the influence you have.

Deep Empathy For Others

Those who inspire us to be better are able to experience empathy, and they openly express their ability to understand our personal “stories”.

They don’t overprotect us, but they validate and appreciate who we are inside, which makes us feel safe to be more authentic, and expand on our own identity even more fully.

Equality

The people who inspire us the most don't tolerate bigotry, or racism and they don’t harbor or encourage thoughts of who is “better” than someone else, or who deserves more. They model equality

When hard times strike

Those that feel they are in control over their lives also feel stress and anxiety, but they use this anxiety differently: their anxiety fuels passion instead of pity, drive in lieu of despair, and tenacity over trepidation.

Expect and prepare for change

Set aside some time regularly to create a list of important changes that you think could possibly happen. The purpose of this task is to open your mind to change and sharpen your ability to spot and respond to changes. 

Even if the events on your lists never happen, the practice of anticipating and preparing for change will give you a greater sense of command over your future.

Prepare For The Worst

It starts with your mind-set. Accept that change is inevitable and realize that you can choose how you react.

When possible, lay the groundwork for recovery before you need to: Keep your skills up to date to stay in demand in the market, have a financial reserve in case of job loss or illness, etc. 

Be Emotionally Self-Aware

Strong emotions are more likely to dictate your behavior.

Become familiar with what triggers your stress. Practice “active internal coping mechanisms” such as reframing, humor, optimism, and meaningful social interactions.
