Leadship Landmines And How to Avoid Them | PEOPLE BUILDING | Scoop.it
We have all our "Landmines" in our life and what is incredible, we are able to walk on it several times in our lives. This post gives us some inputs about this situation!

I constantly see leaders—leaders who are building some of the most successful companies and organizations—get “blown up.” What happened to them? How did these individuals who have reached the top of their profession by doing all the right things, slip and fall? They were blown up by problems they never saw coming.

What I’m about to share with you are five common landmines I have stepped on as well, so I’m speaking from experience.

No Sacrifice. No Leadership

No Sacrifice. No Leadership | PEOPLE BUILDING | Scoop.it
The 1950s was an amazing time of economic prosperity. This was facilitated by a number of factors. The interstate system was built during this decade which opened the door for easier transport of goods and allowed ease of travel for the average person. These things created jobs and the country flourished.

What isn’t credited as much as I feel it should be is what happened during the decade leading up to the 1950s. There was an overwhelming sense of willingness to tolerate personal sacrifice for the greater good. As I look around today and hear the different sound bytes on the news, I can’t help but wonder “What in the world happened to our sense of greater good?”...

A Delicate Dance: Building Wealth on Empire Avenue

I like the sentence: “It’s been said that ‘Buy is the new Like’, but sell does not have to mean dislike.” I like it so much that I set it on my EAv status. I think and believe that each of us must find his own path to the success on EA. Peter says “I hate selling” for me this is not a problem it’s a part of the game. I see only one problem… this “game” is very addictif but so funny. Let’s Rock and having a lot of fun! Thank you for your great post… I like it!

9 Easy Steps for Athletes to Break Barriers to Peak Performance

9 Easy Steps for Athletes to Break Barriers to Peak Performance | PEOPLE BUILDING | Scoop.it
A disconnect existed between my goals and how I felt about stepping out of my comfort zone. Fortunately I realized my fears were not based upon reality. In fact, they weren’t even logical.

Focus on the goal. Regularly envision yourself being a success. You reached your goal. Create the story of being a success, making it vivid and real. When you focus on the end result and embrace the feeling of success, your brain begins to make chemical changes which support reaching this goal.
