Would you like us to take another look at this review? Thinking about practical ways to help you play your biggest game as a human being and reach greatness. Dwelling on how I can help companies get to the extraordinary. Made me think. All the stuff he talks about is easy for him to do.

Sorry to disappoint you. No guru here. Need to learn more about that one. Maybe some guru can help me. But please know that I try so hard to walk my talk and to ensure my video is in alignment with my audio. I challenge my clients to dream, to shine and to dare, because to me a life well lived is all about reaching for your highest and your best. And, in my mind, the person who experiences the most wins.

Most of the time, I am a poster boy for visiting the places that scare me and doing the things that make me feel uncomfortable. I was downtown at the Four Seasons in Toronto, in the lobby getting ready for a speech I was about to give to a company called Advanced Medical Optics, which is a long — standing leadership coaching client of ours and an impressive organization. I look up and guess who I see?

Harvey Keitel. I shrink from greatness. Each day, life will send you little windows of opportunity. Your destiny will ultimately be defined by how you respond to these windows of opportunity. But I missed the chance to connect with Harvey Keitel. Shrink from them and your life will be small.

Feel the fear and run to them anyway, and your life will be big. Even with your kids, you only have a tiny window to develop them and champion their highest potential. And to show them what unconditional love looks like. You, as well as your organization, are most vulnerable when you are most successful. Success actually breeds complacency, inefficiency and — worst of all — arrogance. When people and businesses get really successful, they often fall in love with themselves. They stop innovating, working hard, taking risks and begin to rest on their laurels.

They go on the defensive, spending their energy protecting their success rather than staying true to the very things that got them to the top. Please let me give you a real — world example from my own life. This past weekend, I took my kids to our favorite Italian restaurant.

The food is incredible there. The best bresaola outside of Italy. Heavenly pasta. Super foamy lattes that make me want to give up my job and become a barista. But the service at this place is bad. Bad, bad, bad like it is at most places.

Because the place is always full. And guess what? I love taking pictures. My dad taught me to record the journey of my life with photos. So I generally carry a little camera with me.

The Greatness Guide Book 2

I asked our server if she would snap a picture of my children and me as we dug into our spaghetti. Too busy to take five seconds to keep a customer happy. Too busy to help out a little.

Too busy to show some humanity. The more successful you and your organization become, the more humble and devoted to your customers you need to be.

The more committed to efficiency and relentless improvement you need to be. The faster you need to play. The more value you need to add.

Because the moment you stop doing the very things that got you to the top of the mountain is the very moment you begin the slid down to the valley. It got me thinking about the importance of showing up fully at work — giving the fullness of your brilliance and playing full out. Being breathtakingly committed to your big projects and best opportunities. Being a rock star in whatever you do each day to put bread on your table.

Work gives meaning to our lives. It influences our self — worth and the way we perceive our place under the sun. Being spectacularly great at your work promotes personal respect, excitement and just makes your life a lot more interesting. Good things happen to people who do good things. And when you bring your highest talents and deepest devotion to the work you do, what you are really doing is setting yourself up for a richer, happier and more fulfilling experience of living.

How do you feel after an ultra — productive day? How do you feel when you reached fro your greatest goals and grabbed them? The point makes me think of the words of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. So be a rock star at work today. Walk onto the stage of this day and play your heart out. Give the performance of your life.

Wow your audience and get them cheering for you. Be the Bono of selling staplers. Be the Keith Richards of accounting. Be the Jimi Hendrix of human resources.

And when you get famous and people from all over ask you for your autograph, make sure you drop a me a line. As you live your hours, so you create your years. As you live your days, so your craft your life. What you do today is actually creating your future. The words you speak, the thoughts you thin, the food you eat and the actions you take are defining your destiny — shaping who you are becoming and what your life will stand for.

Small choices lead to giant consequences — over time. As you live your days, so you craft your life. Each one of us is called to greatness. Each one of us has an exquisite power within us. Each one of us can have a significant impact on the world around us — if we so choose. But for this power that resides internally to grow, we need to use it. And the more you exercise it, the stronger it gets. The more this power gets tapped, the more confident you become.

They just take little steps each day as they march toward their biggest life. And the days slip into weeks, the weeks into months and before they know it, they arrive at a place called Extraordinary. Reading from a great book is really all about having a conversation with the author.

And we become our conversations. Want to hang out with Madonna tomorrow? Grab her book. And reading a book by someone you respect allows some of their brilliance to rub off on you. The hands that puts down a great book will never be the same.

His philosophy was that all it takes is one idea discovered in a single book to lift you to a whole new level and revolutionize the way you see the world. And so our home was filled with books. And now I try to devote at least an hour a day to reading. That habit alone has transformed me.

Thank you, dad. Perhaps my greatest gift to my children when I die will be my library. I have books on leadership, relationships, business, philosophy, wellness, spirituality, great lives and many of my other favored topics in it.

These books have shaped my thinking. They have formed my personal philosophy. They have made me the man I am. To me, my books are priceless.

Reading a book by someone you respect allows some of their brilliance to rub off on you. Fill your mind with big ideas and dazzling thoughts. Use books to flood your soul with hope and inspiration. And remember, if you want to lead, you really need to read.

The Greatness Guide

Get Some Skin in the Game I fail more than most people. I fail all the time. I used to wonder why this happened. I used to play Poor Me and suffer from the dreaded disease of victimitis infinitus.

But now I get it. Failure is the price of greatness. Failure is an essential ingredient for a high achievement. Succeed sooner. No risk, no reward. And the more risks you take in the pursuit of your dreams, the more you are going to fail. Too many among us live in what I call the safe harbor of the known. Same breakfast for 20 years. Same drive to work for 20 years. Same conversations for 20 years. Same thinking for 20 years. I have no judgment on that kind of a life. Einstein defined insanity as doing the same things but expecting different results.

Yet most people rule their lives that way. True joy comes when you put some skin in the game and take some chances. Yes, you will start to experience more failure. But guess what?

Success also starts to pay more visits. Failure is just part of the process of getting to world class. The best companies on the planet have failed more than the average ones.

The most successful people on the planet have failed more than ordinary ones. To me, the only failure is the failure to try and dream and dare. The real risk lies in riskless living. So go ahead, stretch today. Ask for the best table in your favorite restaurant. Ask for an upgrade to first class on your next flight good luck. Ask your teammate at work for more understanding. Ask your sweetheart at home for more love. Do it. I dare you. Be into Breezes I was at my tennis club a while ago with my kids, who are great players.

A man who I guess would be in his early seventies comes up to me and starts a conversation. Interesting person. Lived a rich life so far. After a few moments, he closes his eyes and smiles.

Enrich your life with more of them and your heart will be happy. In this age of wanting more, needing more and having more, it was so refreshing to hear someone speak of the simple pleasures of life. I need to be clear: I have nothing against material things. Life is certainly full of material pleasures that really do make the journey more delightful.

No need to feel guilty about enjoying them. Like deep human connections, realizing your best through fulfilling work, exploring the world and experiencing the glory of nature — like a sensational sunset that fills your soul or a full moon set against a star — filled sky. And you can start with sweet breezes. Make Time to Think I am blessed to be able to meet interesting people from all walks of life regularly because of the work I do.

I meet film — makers, poets, brilliant college students, wise teachers and visionary entrepreneurs. Each one of these encounters has taught me something and shaped my perspective.

Asked him the secret of his outrageous success. Sitting silently. Still, with his eyes closed. Making the time to think is a superb strategy for success at leadership and in life. Too many people spend the best hours of their days solely engaged in doing, on the execution aspect of things. Few things are as disappointing as investing all your time, energy and potential climbing a mountain only to find — once at the top — that you climbed the wrong one.

Clarity precedes success. By thinking more, you will have a better sense of your priorities and what you need to focus on. Your actions will be more crisp and deliberate and intentional. You will make better decisions and wiser choices. More time thinking will make you less reactive. Leadership Begins on the Extra Mile I had just dropped off Colby and Bianca at school and was driving to the office when I got an insight that made me pull over.

So here I sit, off to the side of the road with my hazard blinkers on, hammering this out on my Black Berry because I wanted to share it with you. The big idea: Leadership — and success — begins on the extra mile. Leadership is shown by the manager who finishes a report that has taken the very best from him, then goes back to it a little later to polish and improve it even more. Leadership is shown by a team that delivers on their value promise to a customer and then figs even deeper to wow them.

And leadership is shown by the human being who fights the urge to stay under the covers on a cold day and throws on her running shoes to pound the pavement. Not because running miles on a frosty morning is fun. Please think about this idea. Those among us who craft extraordinary careers and spectacular lives are those who spend most of their time giving their best out on the extra mile.

But who ever said you were ordinary? Mick Jagger and reference Points Last Monday night I watched a 62 — year — old man rock the house for more than two hours in front of 30, adoring fans. Yup, Mick is 62 and the once young Stones frontman is aging. But he still has that charisma. Still has the moves. Still has the youth. Positive reference points will pull you into a new way of seeing things and introduce you to a new set of possibilities.

Doors you never even knew existed will begin to open. Lance Armstrong is a great reference point on persistence. My father is a great reference point on integrity.

My mother is an excellent reference point on kindness. My children are superb reference points on what unconditional love and boundless curiosity look like.

Richard Branson is a spectacular reference point on living a full — out life. Madonna is a great reference point on reinvention. Peter Drucker was a wonderful reference point on the importance of lifelong learning. Nelson Mandela is a brilliant reference point on courage and humanitarianism.

Often, we have weak reference points so we see the limitations of a scenario rather than the opportunities. With world — class reference points, you will realize far more of your potential and life will have more wonder.

You will play a bigger game as a human being if you pick the right people to model. We are all cut from the same cloth. We are all flesh and bones. If they can get to greatness — so can you. You just need to do the same kinds of things your reference points did to reach their excellence.

For me, today marks the last day of a 20 — day speaking and book tour that took me throughout India one of my favorite countries to visit to Istanbul a fantastic place and finally to this small German city. Learned so much these past three weeks. Met so many amazing human beings who blessed me with their kindness. Been moved by the sea change of people who are reaching for their greatest lives and leading by example.

How easy it is to forget that, ultimately, business and life is all about forging human bonds. Being out on this tour, I laughed with my readers at book signings. I broke bread with the clients we do leadership development work for.

I drank coffee with my publishers. I got to know the people in this community that has grown around my message. And they got to know me.

Big idea: People want to know that you are real. That you are decent, kind and trustworthy.

They want to feel you and sense you and look into your eyes to see what you are made of. They want to know your passion for whatever it is you stand for. And when they sense that you are the real deal, they will open up to you. And your career along with your life will get to a place called world class based on those trust connections. Simple stuff — I know. Success is all about consistency around the fundamentals.

So I invite you to get out of your office and go circulate. Being out there makes good things happen. Nothing really happens until you move.

Shake hands. Do lunches. Show genuine interest. Spread your good will. Evangelize your message. Remember that before someone will lend you a hand, you need to touch their heart. And that business is all about relationships. The kids and I were having breakfast this morning when Bianca, my nine — year — old daughter, brought up this subject of this crazy little cartoon character.

Then it made me think. If SpongeBob were a human being, this world would be a better place.

The guy or sponge, I should say always sees the best in any situation. Your thinking really does shape your reality. And because SpongeBob looks for the best, he finds it. Value Popele. SpongeBob knows what friendship means. SpongeBob knows that respect and putting people first are two of the most important elements for strong relationships. Be an Original. SpongeBob is one of a kind.

Too many among us are afraid to be ourselves. So we give up our dreams to follow the crowd. Have the courage to be your true — and greatest — you. Laugh and have fun. Makes no sense. Yes, reach for the mountaintop. But enjoy the climb as well. It was meant to be a celebration. So have big — time fun as you chase — and catch — your most cherished dreams.

As we leave the wonder years of childhood, most of us stop doing the things that make our hearts sing. One CEO client told me recently that when he was young, he used to love to take long solo rides on his bicycle. Life just got busier.

But those moments out on that bike came from some of the best days of my life.

Reward Yourself

Then I started my business and it began to consume me. I miss playing music. And then, over the coming 10 weeks, inject one of those pursuits into your weekly schedules.

Powerful thought: The things that get scheduled are the things that get done. They build their greatness on action and near — flawless execution around their deliverables. They get things done.

This 10 — week program works. When you get back to doing those things that lifted your spirit and sent you soaring, you reconnect with that state of happiness that you may have lost. And part of the purpose of life is to be happy. Really happy. Learned that one from personal experience. Fear of failure. Fear of rejection. Fear of not being good enough. Fear of success. That kind of language also lacks any sense of personal responsibility and usually comes from people too afraid to get into the game.

And yes, I believe there is a coherence to the way our lives unfold that is highly intelligent. But I also believe — deeply — that we were given free will and the power to make choices for a single reason: to exercise them. I believe that we generally get from life what we give to life. I believe that good things happen to those willing to put in the effort, exercise discipline and make the sacrifices that personal and professional greatness requires — no, demands.

Life favors the devoted. While others were home watching TV or sleeping, these great ones — who have made their mark on the world and have added tremendous value to it — were up early, putting in the hours, showing life that they were dedicated to their dream. Just a law of nature. Be spectacularly great at what you do.

Wear your passion on your sleeve and hold your heart in the palm of your hand. And work hard. Really hard. Hard work opens doors and shows the world that you are serious about being one of those rare — and special — human beings that uses the fullness of their talents for the highest and the very best.

Know Your Genius Genius is not the sole domain of a rare breed of person. Both you and I are entitled to that label and to play in that space — if we so choose.

Focus plus daily improvement plus time equals genius. Understand that formula deeply and your life will never be the same. Michael Jordan was a basketball genius. Was his spectacular success on the court purely the result of natural gifts?

Absolutely not. He took what nature gave him and ran the formula: Focus plus daily improvement plus time equals genius. He just got devoted to being brilliant at basketball.

And he was. Thomas Edison registered a stunning patents over his lifetime and invented the lightbulb as well as the phonograph. He focused on his inventions. He improved daily. And he let time work its magic. Genius came knocking. Makes me think of a story about Pablo Picasso. One day a woman spotted him in the market and pulled out a piece of paper. Please, could you do a little drawing for me?

Understand the formula deeply and your life will never be the same. Know what you can excel at — your genius. Discover your talents and then work like crazy to polish them. One of the most important of all personal leadership skills is self — awareness. Know what you are really great at. Reflect on those abilities that others admire in you.

Think about those capabilities that just come easily to you — and then flow effortlessly from you. You might be a fantastic communicator or have a way with people. You might possess an extraordinary ability to execute and get things done. Perhaps your special talent lies in innovation and creativity and seeing what everyone else sees but thinking a different thought. Find your genius points and then develop them. Focus plus daily improvement plus time. Start today and in three to five years people will be writing about you.

Calling you a genius. Celebrating your magnificence. Listen Twice as Much as you Speak My mom is a very wise woman. As a kid, I loved to talk still do. In school, I always did well academically but my report cards never failed to note my passion for vigorously exercising my vocal chords on a near — constant basis. Listening intently to someone is one of the best ways I know of to honor that person and forge a deep human connection. And the sad fact is that while one person is talking, most of us are rehearsing our replies.

Listen twice as much as you speak. Become a world — class listener. Get wildly interested in what others have to say to you. And just watch how people respond. The Dave Matthews Band is playing in the background. The smell of coffee fills the air. The espresso machines blast away. People are reading, relaxing and talking. The vibe is good. I feel happy here. Feels like home. Not at all. The only real competition is for their emotions. Miss this insight and you just might lost your business.

Sure I could spend less on a cup of java. But I love the way going into a Starbucks make me feel. And each of us craves good feelings as we live out our days. In so many ways, adults are nothing more than children in grown — up bodies — and children are all about feeling good. I have always believed that by touching emotion you get the best people to work with you, the best clients to inspire you, the best partners and more devoted customers.

Human beings move when their emotions are moved. How does carrying an iPod around make you feel? How does shopping at a hip ship makes you feel? How does walking into your favorite restaurant and being greeted like Diddy or Madonna or Bill Clinton make you feel? You get my point. People go where they are made to feel cared for, special and good. People buy from a place of emotional engagement. Seems to obvious.

Think about it. Success comes by treating your customers with love. Acclaim comes by doing your job with love. Market leadership comes with selling your wares with love. If your customers only like you, you are vulnerable to losing them when a competitor with a cheaper product or a more economical service comes along. They become loyal.

They tell the rest of the family about you. I love the place. Learn to Say No Every time you say yes to something that is unimportant, you say are no to something that is important. Saying no to the friend who wants to meet over coffee to gossip. Say no to the co — worker who wants to spread his negativity and cynicism. Say no to the relative who laughs at your dreams and makes you doubt yourself. Every time you say yes to something that is unimportant, you say no to something that is important.

The best among us get that.

Know your priorities. Know your goals. Know what needs to get done over the coming weeks, months and years for you to feel that you played your best game as a human being. And then say no to everything else. Sure some people around you might not be happy. But would you rather live your life according to the approval of others or aligned with your truth and your dreams? Burn Your Boats Powerful thought: Great achievement often happens when our backs are up against the wall.

Pressure can actually enhance your performance. Your power most fully exerts itself when the heat is on. Challenge serves beautifully to introduce you to your best — and most brilliant — self.

Please stop and think about that idea for a second or two. They make you slower and more complacent and sleepy. Staying in the safe zone — and coasting through life — never made anyone bigger. But greatness never came to anyone normal. He landed on the shores of Veracruz, Mexico, in Wanted his army to conquer the land for Spain.

Faced an uphill battle: an aggressive enemy, brutal disease and scarce resources. Diamonds get formed through intense pressure. And remarkable human beings get formed by living from a frame of reference that tells them they just have to win.

Grow Leaders Fast One of the training programs that we offer companies to help them get to world class in their market space is called Grow The Leader. Organizations all around the world including NASA and pharmaceutical giant Wyeth are using our unique process to increase employee engagement, enhance culture, dramatically boost performance and produce superior business results. Grow The Leader is based on a simple yet powerful concept: The ultimate competitive advantage of your enterprise comes down to a single imperative — your ability to grow and develop leaders faster than your competition.

The more quickly you can get every single person in the company demonstrating leadership behavior — regardless of their position — the more quickly you will lead the field.

A leadership culture is one where everyone thinks like an owner, like a CEO or managing director. This means they focus on getting to solutions rather than on the problems. This means they do whatever it takes to keep customers happy. This means they worry about sales and do their part to reduce costs. This means they take personal responsibility for achieving results that move the business forward whether they run the mailroom or sit in a boardroom. This means they shape culture, stay positive and lead by example.

The ultimate competitive advantage of your Enterprise comes down to a single imperative — your Ability to grow and develop leaders faster than Your competition. That would lead to chaos. Businesses do need someone to set the vision and then lead the team to it. And when they do — when they think, feel and act like leaders — good things will happen. And soon, your organization will get to great.

A few do not. Join them. You might be viewing things through the eyes of your fears, limitations and false assumptions.

Once you clean up the stained glass window you see the world through, guess what? A whole new set of possibilities appears. Remember, we see the world not as it is but as we are. That idea changed my life, over a decade ago, when I was an unhappy lawyer searching for a better way to live.

Before , it was believed that no runner could ever break the four — minute mile barrier.Shared how companies can achieve stunning success by making a few simple changes and course corrections. Robin Sharma is known around the world as the man behind The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari phenomenon, the 1 bestselling series of inspirational books spun around the modern fable of a jet-setting lawyer who gives it all up to search for his best life.
