Leadership means doing your vision (even if you’re title is janitor – be a visionary janitor and create wow in your work). Leadership means staying true to your self. And leadership means, well, not following. When you get to work every day, it’s showtime. No one cares if you have a cold or if you’re feeling off or if you had a fight with your best friend. We are paid to do great work. And the best businesses offer their customers an experience, not just a product or a service. The best businesses create “Fanatical Followers” – customers who are so in love with who you are and what you do that they have crossed the boundary from loyalty into outright fanaticism.
Every single one of us has each day to shift from victimhood into leadership. To transcend our current circumstances to play in the rare-air of excellence, mastery and genius. This isn’t hype. There are people who have learned to do this. Through talent, hard work, ingenuity and leadership, shed the shackles of ordinary and grow into extraordinary. You can do it, in your work and within your life. Starting today!
