Day 19 – I am setting my sights…
Looking through the window of the Forest Service Fire-Lookout Station on top of Trinity Mountain, I am reminded of one of my favorite talks from John Maxwell at one of his International Maxwell Certification (IMC)Trainings last year.
Leaders see ‘more’ than others and Leaders see ‘before’ others. If a leader does not see ‘more’ and see ‘before’… well, they are not the leader. They hold the position, but somebody else is leading. Exceptional leaders, however, see ‘more-more’ and they see ‘more-before.’ To do that, the leader must accept the world of abundance. They must expect that there is ‘more-more’ to see, ‘more-more’ to accomplish, and ‘more-more’ to share. They are looking for it. The more they see, do, and share is not an accident. They are intentional in their search for ‘more-more’.
I worked hard to get to the top of this mountain. Some, might just take in the view and start back down. I am going to take advantage of the lessons learned and the height of my growth. I am going to seek out new mountains, new opportunities, new ways to add value to others. I am not worried about how long it will take, I am focused on how far I can go…
I am setting my sights…
