K.I.S.S. Success Tips: Leadership

Leaders Keep The Main Thing The Main Thing

Outstanding leaders go out of their way to boost the self-esteem of their personnel. If people believe in themselves, it's amazing what 

they can accomplish.  - Sam Walton


I know of no single formula for success. But over the years I have observed that some attributes of leadership are universal and are often about finding ways of encouraging people to combine their efforts, their talents, their insights, their enthusiasm and their inspiration to work together. - Queen Elizabeth II

Leaders Pocess Unquestionably Integrity

The supreme quality for leadership is unquestionably integrity. Without it, no real success is possible, no matter whether it is on a section gang, a football field, in an army, or in an office. - Dwight D. Eisenhower


It is better to lead from behind and to put others in front, especially when you celebrate victory when nice things occur. You take the front line when there is danger. Then people will appreciate your leadership. - Nelson Mandela


The quality of a leader is reflected in the standards they set for themselves. - Ray Kroc

Leaders Solve Problems

Leadership is solving problems. The day soldiers stop bringing you their problems is the day you have stopped leading them. They have either lost confidence that you can help or concluded you do not care. Either case is a failure of leadership. - Colin Powell


Ultimately, leadership is not about glorious crowning acts. It's about 

keeping your team focused on a goal and motivated to do their best to 

achieve it, especially when the stakes are high and the consequences 

really matter. It is about laying the groundwork for others' success, 

and then standing back and letting them shine. - Chris Hadfield


Leadership is the capacity to translate vision into reality. - Warren Bennis


A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way. - John C. Maxwell


People ask the difference between a leader and a boss. The leader leads, and the boss drives. - Theodore Roosevelt


A genuine leader is not a searcher for consensus but a molder of consensus. -  Martin Luther King, Jr.


Leadership is unlocking people's potential to become better. - Bill Bradley

Pearls of Wisdom: Dr. Martin Luther King; Jr.

Be the Best, Commit to Excellence!

If it falls to your lot to be a street sweeper, sweep streets like Michelangelo painted pictures, sweep streets like Beethoven composed music ... ... Sweep streets so well that all the host of 

heaven and earth will have to pause and say: Here lived a great 

street sweeper who swept his job well.


All labor that uplifts humanity has dignity and importance and 

should be undertaken with painstaking excellence.

                                        

Whatever your life's work is, do it well. A man should do his job

job so well that the living, the dead, and the unborn could do it 

no better.

The Measure of Character...

The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.


I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.


That old law about 'an eye for an eye' leaves everybody blind. The time is always right to do the right thing.


Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.


That old law about 'an eye for an eye' leaves everybody blind. The time is always right to do the right thing. 


Life's most persistent and urgent question is, What are you doing for others?

Education, Knowledge and History

The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character - that is the goal of true education.


Science investigates; religion interprets. Science gives man knowledge which is power; religion gives man wisdom which is control.


Rarely do we find men who willingly engage in hard, solid thinking. There is an almost universal quest for easy answers and half-baked solutions. Nothing pains some people more than having to think.


Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.


We must learn to live together as brothers or perish together as fools.


History will have to record that the greatest tragedy of this period of social transition was not the strident clamor of the bad people, but the appalling silence of the good people.


In the End, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.


The past is prophetic in that it asserts loudly that wars are poor chisels for carving out peaceful tomorrows.

Pearls of Wisdom: Excellence!

Committed to Excellence!

I have always been fascinated by, and tried to live a life of Excellence

For years I have used the  mantra  Committed to Excellence. 

Commitex Enterprises...

My company Commitex Enterprises, the name Commitex that I use 

in my businesses  come from Committed to Excellence (Commi-T-Ex).

Autograph Your Work With Excellence...

One of my favorite quotes states, "Every Job Is A Self-Portrait Of The 

Person Who Did It.   Autograph Your Work With Excellence."

Personal Excellence...

The will to win, the desire to succeed, the urge to reach your full 

potential... these are the keys that will unlock the door to personal 

excellence. - Confucius

Excellence, is a Habit...

Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not 

act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have 

those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. 

Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit. -  Aristotle

Excellence a Prevailing Attitude...

If you are going to achieve excellence in big things, you develop 

the habit in little matters. Excellence is not an exception, it is a 

prevailing attitude. - Colin Powell

Pearls of Wisdom

It's Time ToTake The Shot

How many times to we hide behind the excuses that we are waiting

for the right moment.


Maybe you have used this one...I just can't make a decision right now

this is too important, I need to think about it .


Well you just made a decision. You either make the decision to take 

the shot ,or you decide to think about it. Either way you made a 

decision.


Take The Shot!....


I've missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 

games. 26 times, I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and 

missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is 

why I succeed. - Michael Jordan

If I'd just tried for them dinky singles I could've batted around .600.


Every strike brings me closer to the next home run. Babe Ruth


A quote from one of my favorite mentors Les Brown goes something

like this: Shoot for the moon and if you miss you will still be among 

the stars.


It's Time To Take The Shot


Ready to expedite your personal growth? The experts will tell you to 

take the shot, get out of your comfort zone.


You just might be the Wayne Gretzky, Michael Jordan, Babe Ruth

or maybe even Les Brown


I've always believed no matter how many shots I miss, I'm going to 

make the next one. - Isaiah Thomas


Take The Shot...


Where would the world be if inventors like Edison, or entrepreneurs
like Steve Jobs or Bill Gates never took their shot.


If you want to take a shot at becoming a 6 figure per year earner
Go Here Now: Watch the video then follow the instructions.


You miss 100% of the shots you don't take. - Wayne Gretzky

Pearls of Wisdom - Jim Rohn

Being The Best You Can Be...

Don’t join an easy crowd; you won’t grow. Go where the expectations 

and the demands to perform are high.


“Let others lead small lives, but not you. Let others argue over small 

things, but not you. Let others cry over small hurts, but not you. Let 

others leave their future in someone else’s hands, but not you.”


You must take personal responsibility. You cannot change the circumstances, 

the seasons, or the wind, but you can change yourself. That is something you 

have charge of.


If you don’t design your own life plan, chances are you’ll fall into someone 

else’s plan. And guess what they have planned for you? Not much.


Character isn’t something you were born with and can’t change, like your 

fingerprints. It’s something you weren’t born with and must take responsibility 

for forming.


 If you don’t like how things are, change it! You’re not a tree. 

Discipline And The Results Of Leading A Disciplined Life

Discipline is the bridge between goals and accomplishment.


 We must all suffer one of two things: the pain of discipline or the pain of 

regret or disappointment.

 

Affirmation without discipline is the beginning of delusion.


Success is nothing more than a few simple disciplines, practiced every day.


Your philosophy determines whether you will go for the disciplines  or

continue the errors.

Goals And The Reason For Setting Them

The major reason for setting a goal is for what it makes of you to  accomplish it. 

What it makes of you will always be the far greater value  than what you get. 


 If you learn to set a good sail, the wind that blows will always take  you to the 

dreams you want, the income you want, and the treasures of  mind, purse, 

and soul you want. 


If you go to work on  your goals, your goals will go to work on you. If you go 

to work on your  plan, your plan will go to work on you. Whatever good things 

we build  end up building us.

Achieving Greatness And Wealth...

Whoever renders service to many puts himself in line for greatness - 

great wealth, great return, great satisfaction, great reputation, and 

great joy.


Learning is the beginning of wealth. Learning is the beginning of health. 

Learning is the beginning of spirituality. Searching and learning is where 

the miracle process all begins.


Take advantage of every opportunity to practice your communication skills 

so that when important occasions arise, you will have the gift, the style, the 

sharpness, the clarity, and the emotions to affect other people.

Profits Are Better than Wages...

My mentor, when I was 25 years old, dropped a phrase on me that changed
my life forever when he said, "Profits are better than wages. Wages will  make
you a living, Profits can make you a fortune."  

Formal education will make you a living; self-education will make you a
fortune.


You don’t get paid for the hour. You get paid for the value you bring to 

the hour.


Time is more value than money. You can get more money, but you cannot 

get more time. 


 Work harder on yourself than you do on your job.  

The Secret To Success, Avoiding Failure...

Success is neither magical nor mysterious. Success is the natural 

consequence of consistently applying the basic fundamentals.


Success is steady progress toward one's personal goals.


Success is doing ordinary things extraordinarily well.


 Success is not to be pursued; it is to be attracted by the person you become 


Failure is not a single, cataclysmic event. You don’t fail overnight. Instead, 

failure is a few errors in judgement, repeated every day.


Failure is simply a few errors in judgment, repeated every day.

As you may already know Jim Rohn was one of my first Mentors.
Like many others I consider him to be one of the truly Great Gifts
the world has had the pleasure to experience.

Trying HARDER isn’t usually the best remedy.

Consider this quick story…


There was an eager fly trying its best to zoom thru a window pane. 

Crashing himself against the glass, over and over again…


He was burning thru the last supply of his energy.He had bought into 

the story of, “just try harder.”


However, 3’ inches to his left was a door swung wide open.


If he’d just stopped banging his head against the window, he could 

have easily spotted the easier path, flew over and out the door, straight 

to his little-bee F.r.e.e.d.o.m waiting for him outside.


If your online business, j-o-b, or financial and lifestyle situation isn’t 

working well for you right now…


Trying HARDER isn’t usually the best remedy.


Could there be a better path laid out for you? Just 3 inches to your left?

Step Out of Your Comfort Zone

 Every time you take on something new and expand 

your comfort zone, it builds your confidence and creates 

new capabilities that you can use to succeed.

Winners Take Action....

 The winners in life  think constantly in terms of I can, I will, and I am. Losers, on the  other hand, concentrate their waking thoughts on what they should have  or would have done, or what they can't do. Denis Waitley
