Facing 2015 with Intention – Reason #12

Intention [in-ten-shuh n] (noun)

1. an act or instance of determining mentally upon some action or result.

2.  the end or object intended; purpose.

     Today is January 1, 2015.  You are likely filled with intention by setting resolutions for the new year.  How long will that intention last?  Do you think you’ll have as much determination to lose weight, spend more time with loved ones, or check another item off of your bucket list, by around January 29, 2015?
     Statistics show that only 64% of those who begin on January 1st with intention to complete a goal are still at it on February 1st.
     By July 1st, only 46% are still taking action with intention toward the desired result.   Sadly, only 8% of individuals who set resolutions at the first of the year actually succeed in reaching them.
      I have a new book out titled, SELF Centered Leadership: Becoming Influential, Intentional and Exceptional.  It is available in paperback and Kindle on Amazon.com.
      I describe how opportunities to lead are very different from leading with INTENTION.  I explain that the ONLY way to become an exceptional leader is by leading with INTENTION.  Learning to lead with intention is reason 12 of 30 reasons to read my book.
     I hope you’ll buy it with the INTENTION to read it!  I hope you’ll read it with the INTENTION of becoming EXCEPTIONAL!
     Have a very happy, intentional new year!

Will the Real Hero Please Stand Up? – Reason #25

Action Hero City | Jackie Bailey

Man Saves Baby from Burning Building

Woman Pulls Stranger from Car Wreck

Young Boy Calls 911 and Saves His Fathers Life

These are feel-good headlines.  They often give us pause to reflect on what our own actions might be if we found ourselves in the same circumstance.

We don’t have to perform tremendous feats to be leadership heroes.  In leadership, we can be heroic by taking the action necessary to ensure the right outcome.

In my upcoming book, SELF Centered Leadership: Becoming Influential, Intentional and Exceptional, I will provide you with ways to become heroic in your leadership.  That is reason 25 in my 30-reason countdown.

In my book I share examples of three individuals who became heroic simply by using their influence with intentional action.  YOU can be a leadership hero, too!

Reason 29 – Spotting the Imitation

Imitation

I once sold a fake cake to a grocery store customer.  I didn’t know it was fake at the time.

I didn’t realize that the bakery personnel routinely decorated pieces of Styrofoam to look like real cake.

In my upcoming book, I address some aspects of life that have become imitators of happiness.  You may have been fooled once, but after reading my book, you’ll be on the lookout for forgeries everywhere!

By reading my book you’ll learn how to:

SPOT the IMITATION

That is reason #29 for reading SELF Centered Leadership: Becoming Influential, Intentional and Exceptional.  That’s the title of my book.

If you missed Reason #30 for reading my book, it is that:

You will learn how to prepare for, AND survive, an ODYSSEY.



I hope these two reasons make you want to read my book.  But if not, there are 28 more reasons coming in my blog.
