Leadership Abundance

A lot sure has changed for me and my family over the past 4 months.  I went from being perfectly comfortable building my practice in Fargo, ND to moving to Madison to help Country build a team in the Southern Wisconsin area. 

I have moved a lot in my professional career, however none as impactful as this move since we had such great friends and relationships in Fargo, and having to move a family is much harder.  I am certainly not alone in this choice in that many families do it, however I did have a choice.  I have always been one to keep learning and growing, and this really is a move that will challenge me to do both exponentially.

So where is the leadership lesson in all of this?

We all face leadership choices multiple times everyday.  My choices are to improve personally and professionally so that I can give more to others, do more for others, and share more with others.  I am passionate about teaching people how to grow a practice thru what I call a “running game.”  A sustainable business built around the financial services industry.  I enjoy partnering with top professionals in my industry and others to help round out my skills and knowledge of what I can teach to others.

Making this change was important to me for what I feel my strengths are.  I am personally more engaged, more energized, and more enlightened when I can help others achieve a level of success that they dream of. I have a much bigger dream for them that they may not even be able to visualize at this time in their life.  In my new role, I am blessed to be able to make a significant difference in the lives of others.

I have a lot to learn and I love getting older and learning more as I grow.  The learning process comes from so many different places.  Take my kids for example:  They have so much energy and enthusiasm that it can be contagious, and it can wear you down.  When it wears me down I have to stop and ask myself why?  Why are they so fascinated with life and I am letting that enthusiasm wear me down?  They ask good questions to challenge what I’ve been taught to be normal or the status quo.  As Jim Rohn used to say, “Turn Your Frustration in to Fascination”.  I love that quote.   Then there is Wayne Dyer, “If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.”  How powerful is that?

Here’s to the Abundant Leader in YOU!
