POSSIBILITY IS NOT PROBABILITY

#leadershiplifehack #itsnotwhatyouthink

How do we convert possibility to probability?
How do we choose between probabilities to direct the course and quality of our lives?
What if our "bag of possibilities" was limited from birth?
What If the probabilities we have to choose from are not good?
How do we increase the options, the odds and the opportunities in our life?

Growing up I always heard "everything is possible, not everything is practical." In this lesson we discuss the relationship between possibilities and probabilities.

"The literature seems to generally agree that contentment is maybe a state ideally reached through being happy with what a person has, as opposed to achieving one's larger ambitions, as

Socrates "He who is not contented with what he has, would not be contented with what he would like to have."

That said, there may be a number of elements of achievement that may make finding a state of personal contentment easier: a strong family unit, a strong local community, and satisfaction of life's basic needs as perhaps expressed in Maslow's hierarchy of needs. In general, the more needs in Maslow's hierarchy are achieved, the more easily one might achieve contentment.

Solomon Ibn Gabirol, an eleventh-century Spanish poet-philosopher who taught:

"Who seeks more than he needs, hinders himself from enjoying what he has. Seek what you need and give up what you need not. For in giving up what you don't need, you'll learn what you really do need."

"Do not be complacent about your achievements and not to strive for continual improvement when you get to the top. As soon as you let success go to your head, you sink into following familiar patterns and play it safe. In other words, you risk losing your edge." ~ Roy T. Bennett

"It is a wretched taste to be gratified with mediocrity when the excellent lies before us." Isaac Disraeli

LIBERTY IS NOT LICENSE - When does Liberty cross the line?
Have you every experienced the moment when someone else's liberty crossed over into your rights?
Have you endured second hand smoke as a non smoker?
A belligerent drunk as a non drinker?
A rude driver while waiting in traffic?
Who is the greater tyrant? The masses in the form of mob mentality and social pressure or the government through laws and regulations?

LEADERSHIP TRUTH #4: Thinking time IS NOT Wasted Time

"Can changing your thinking really change your life? Consider this: I’ve studied successful people for over forty years, and though the diversity you find among them is astounding, I believe they are all alike in one way: how they think! That is the one thing that separates the successful from the unsuccessful." John Maxwell

LEADERSHIP TRUTH #3: Success IS NOT selfish
#STOPSUCCESSBASHING
Many people "bash" the successful because the possess more wealth. Having more than your neighbor is not the root of all sin. Building a legacy is not a sin. Striving for growth and improvement is not a sin. So why do people strive for success and secretly despise anyone who gets there first?

LEADERSHIP TRUTH #2: SYNERGY IS NOT SYNCHRONICITY

#LEADERSHIPVLOG
SYNERGY: the interaction of elements that when combined produce a total effect that is greater than the sum of the individual elements, contributions, etc.; synergism.

SYNCHRONICITY: The concept is linked to the psychology of Carl Jung. Jung didn't coin the word (the "simultaneousness" sense of "synchronicity" was already in use), but he gave it special importance in his writings. Jung believed that such "meaningful coincidences" play an important role in our lives.

Leadership truths: Confidence IS NOT competence. Especially in our time of "everyone deserves success" and "I have a right to ____" we encounter people of all ages who are filled with false confidence where they have no competence. ... See MoreSee Less

Tell It Like It Is TV with J Loren NorrisIn response to a question from today's video regarding a comment made about life coaches... yes - it's a long answer. In case you missed the video: youtu.be/zgBZ5DW5Gjg I am one who has paid tens of thousands of dollars to experts to have the knowledge and training I employ. I am a Certified Leadership Speaker, Trainer and Coach with the John Maxwell Team and I am a perpetual learner. Having said that, there are people who have never been certified by anyone, paid to be trained by anyone, authorized by anyone, but have lead and impacted thousands. I would defer to their proven competence over my training any day. I will also say, there are many people whose path I cross with multiple degrees behind their name, with hundreds of thousands of dollars invested, whose judgement, expertise and teaching are not much more than opinionated drivel. While I will listen respectfully, I will not always follow their advice or trust their insights. There are many people who have a specific opinion or world view which motivates them and weighs significantly in their teaching. I am one who holds a Christian or Biblical world view - values based, principles based, Christ centric ideologies - which impact the "slant" from which I teach. Others have a self centric or earth centric or humanistic world view and they teach from that "slant." Who you listen to is key!! "It's not just what you learn that matters, it's who you learn it from." Dr. John C. Maxwell I don't ask my auto mechanic about brain science, I research Dr. Caroline Leaf. I don't research Dr. Leaf about my motorcycle parts though. I seldom seek marriage advice from a single person, or parenting advice from someone with no children, although I might ask for input from children... As a coach or trainer, I would say my journey over the last 7 years has resulted in this revelation: Its not the title or moniker or training or label which make one competent, it is a long obedience in the same direction, consistency in study until the gathering of wisdom drips from every ounce of your being, until your change of heart, change of mind and change of understanding, by sheer magnitude overwhelm your being and your behavior begins to show the transformation. When others see your transformation and crave the same, financially, emotionally, physically, relationally, spiritually -- any of the above or all of the above -- then you will have significant and lasting impact. Many "life coaches" have observed this phenomenon and decided to short cut the process. They will sell a "6 Figure Coaches Training" package, when their life is still a wreck. They will promise a great income, when the only income they have is from selling you the idea of having a great income. Self help is a $48,000,000,000 industry, and sadly, still life coaches commit suicide. WHY? Because many people sell a transformation they have never experienced. My recommendation to anyone who chooses to serve others as an influencer by any title: life coach, clergy, therapist, counsellor, mentor, trainer, leader, et Al. You do you well first. Become a healthy, vibrant, fully alive, fully engaged, balanced person. Become a much improved version of you in all your roles. Seek out mentors and trainers and leaders and influencers in your own life who have done this already and follow their lead. When the evidence of your transformation becomes obvious to others, you will be well on your way, but don't stop there. When you gain a great enough level of influence to charge for your insights, you have an even greater responsibility to improve you and add value to others. In the very end, in the ultimate end, who you are before Christ is ALL THAT WILL MATTER! Being the YOU He created you to be is the BIGGEST WINNING ever!
