It’s been a year since the launch of my program, The Roadmap to Success. Those who have taken advantage of the program, either live or via the video of the program, have reported really remarkable results. If you’re not aware of what I speak, please head on over to http://www.unshackledleadership.com/the-roadmap-to-success-program and check it out.
Here’s what makes this program so interesting. I start out by saying that everything even slightly complicated comes with an owner’s manual. Didn’t you get one with your latest smart phone, computer, tablet, washing machine, and vacuum cleaner? Yet what’s the one thing we ALL get that doesn’t come with an owner’s manual? Some people say “children,” other’s say “a spouse.” But not everyone gets those. The only thing we all get is A LIFE!
Because none of us got the owner’s manual when we arrived, or was old enough to read, the vast majority of people operate their life in a way that they surely wouldn’t if they had read the owner’s manual. It’s like driving your car down the road with your hands on the rear view mirror or the dials on your radio. Is it any wonder we keep hitting the wall? Is it any wonder that the vast majority of people do not think their life is turning out the way they would like? Or that the vast majority of people who run companies never really fulfill on their objectives.
The program goes on to say that there really is good news: there is an owner’s manual for your life! And if you understand what the manual says, you can apply it to business and accomplish pretty much anything you can imagine. How exciting is that?
So in this and several of the following articles, I’m going to share with you the essence of what The Roadmap to Success program teaches. And please be clear that there’s a difference between “the essence” and the whole story. If you find the essence of interest, you can access the whole story at http://www.unshackledleadership.com/the-roadmap-to-success-program.
Let’s start with the single most important statement you would find in the owner’s manual: You were born with the exact same power to create as anyone else. There has never been anyone that walked on this planet who was more powerful than you and there never will be anyone who will be more powerful than you. Now those are all true statements but hardly anyone believes them to be true, and you likely don’t either. And that is the number one reason why so few people have what they want.
I’ve given many talks where I’ve walked into the audience and said those statements over and over again to audience members and while most shake their head and speculate that yes, they do believe that, I can look in their eyes and see that they don’t. And there are many reasons why people don’t believe me.
One reason is that people see others like Kobe Bryant, Bill Gates, Adele, and Tiger Woods producing amazing results and say to themselves: I could never do that! But what’s not understood is that everyone has different talents and abilities and those people used their talents and abilities to produce the results they produced. But there are countless others that have similar talents and abilities that don’t produce similar results, because they haven’t read the owner’s manual.
Listen carefully: you have a unique set of talents and abilities. If you understand how the game of life works and play according to the rules, you can use your talents and abilities to be as successful as anyone has ever been. In your field, you could be the next Steve Jobs, Conrad Hilton, Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg. Yes, they were all amazing people. But so are you. You are far more amazing than you know. You are as powerful as anyone who has ever walked on the face of the planet. But your entry into this game depends on you believing that. Are you willing?
