Hey Team...

Busy day yesterday catching up on things....

One of my favorite things to do is record podcasts for others....

And, also, record my own!

I am not sure if you knew I had one, it is called BECOMING A CHAMPION..

I hope you enjoy...

When I was recording for another pod that is coming out soon, I shared a story about a Lion....

The King of the Jungle...

We all know the power of the lion... the hunters instincts that are in the soul of the lion.... and how the lion always goes after what it wants....

Many leaders are like lions....

Vision focused. Action focused. They go after whatever it is they lock their eyes on. They go into hunt mode... and they do not stop until they get what they want....

But there is a distinct difference between the King of the Jungle and YOU.

Ready?

They are never chased and attacked. (unless they are old and slow- then hyenas become their threat)

As a Leader though, you will become prey if you are not careful. Most of the times, you become your own prey.

Whenever I begin working with those in the business world, I ask a simple question, "What are you chasing?"....

I immediately follow this up with, "What is chasing you?".... no matter how they answer the first question.... I find this to be the question that gives them the deepest look into their own soul and operating system...

At the root of these questions, I get two answers....

Most leaders are afraid of "losing it all".... including their relevance.... and death.

That is it.

Two things.

Now, one of those is inevitable- we all have the same end game.

But, the other- losing it all, we have control over that. Our decisions and actions determine the outcome of that game.

So, you can either be a Lion that is always out hunting, keeping your gaze on what is in front of you, or, you can get slow, sluggish, and doubtful, eventually folding your cards to a group of hyenas. 

Remember this, you are either chasing something, or being chased.

You decide.

Never forget this though....

We all need something to chase... but chasing can not be all we do....

We always need to make time to celebrate the victories of our accomplishments....go easy on ourselves...

Every strong Lion celebrates their prey...so should you :) ...
