BE A LEADER – The Steely System

Posted by on Aug 17, 2017 in Business Development, Business Effectiveness, Current News Blog, Personal Effectiveness | 0 comments

The word “leadership” is practically an overused cliché these days. Some people believe that America’s politicians are leaders (mostly NOT), and the definition of REAL leadership has grown fuzzy and illusive. From my perspective as an extreme leader, leadership is inspired from the outside the leader, but its energy and capability lie inside the leader. Most of the engagement of leadership involves leading something, someone, or a group of people (tribe). So there must be an object or an organization to lead. Otherwise, the leader is merely going on a walk, alone. Visualize a crusader,...

These days, in order to gain the attention of your ideal prospects, it’s imperative that you INNOVATE the way you promote your value and solution. Here are some tips: 1. Scrap the “Image” and work on an identity. The first step to success is to get away from the idea of creating an image. In fact, the literal definition of image is an imitation or representation of a person or thing. Now that is exactly what you don’t want to be… an imitation. Identity, on the other hand, is the condition of being the same in all qualities. It’s based on truth and honesty. And believe me, it...

What are You Compromising?

Posted by on May 14, 2016 in Business Development, Business Effectiveness, Current News Blog, Personal Effectiveness, Random, The Steely System | 0 comments

As you build your business, and live your ideal life, one of the things that’s often in front of you is the fact that you can’t do everything all at once. Therefore, the paradigm of compromise looms large, especially when it comes to starting a business, and doing the hard (smart) work that’s necessary to get it where it needs to be. There are always things that can be compromised. Things like free time, spending time with family, getting your way versus allowing your partner to get their way, etc. In business, there are many things to compromise. Things like choosing to take...

STRATEGY vs TACTICS in Business

Posted by on Jan 10, 2016 in Business Development, Business Effectiveness, Current News Blog, The Steely System | 0 comments

Throughout my 25 years of professional business leadership, I’m always surprised over how many business owners and leaders choose to remain reactive and tactical – versus strategically proactive – regarding their business activities, in essence sabotaging their ultimate success and potential.

Conditioning is the key to success in athletic performance, professional excellence, and business success. The best and most successful achievers in business are the ones that have CONDITIONED themselves to be successful; it didn’t just fall into their lap… Here’s how all successful people do it: Since the human brain can only accept so much data at one time, it’s important to FOCUS on the key data points and aspects of success that will make the difference for you and your business.

Life is a Paradox (this one’s heady, so hold on tight)

Posted by on Sep 20, 2013 in Business Effectiveness, Current News Blog, Personal Effectiveness, Random, The Steely System | 0 comments

Life is one big paradox. What’s up with that? Consider this: you’re born, you get married, you have kids, then you die… so if you don’t get married or don’t have kids, will you live forever? Well, of course not. But it begs the question… ah, the “question” — it’s the essence of actualization. But don’t take it from me; Socrates, who in 400 BC, fostered the ideal that “questions are the answers.” Our lives are consistently scattered with opportunities to ask questions, and make distinctions.  Dichotomies…...
