Perhaps take a pass on the commercialism of today. Certainly embrace all the accolades and platitudes that belong to great leaders like our
founding fathers, and the Spirit of our nation – celebrated this day and everyday.
And here’s a viewpoint to ponder:
Throughout time, it has been the business owner who has created the jobs, taken the risks, invented the technology, and helped move our great nation forward.
It’s the people who dare to step into the role of company “President” who are the heroes that I choose to celebrate today. Our founding father’s were businessmen who also made the time to build a nation. And the greatest discoveries of the greatest scientists will sit in a research institution’s filing cabinet until a business person applies the breakthru to the real world.
I’ve now spent the bulk of my life encouraging people to step up and become the President of their own organizations. Because you and I are President of our own Life we can each “Make A Difference” in our world…..the world. In your life – you’re the person who decides what’s right, what’s important, and where you want to go. You and I set the course, make the rules, and we “get to” live with the results – good or bad. This takes guts, hutzpah, big kahunas. It’s simple and rarely “easy”. And the really great news is – we all have a level of personal “Response-Ability” that we can increase through learning from our coaches, mentors, and heroes.
So absolutely celebrate being the President of everything in your life. Stop giving away your power to the “they says” or the “Shoulda, coulda, woulda’s” in your life. Stand up!
You are the President of your Life. BE it. DO it. Have it.
