Books that Inspire Me #24: Leading an Inspired Life

Courageous leadership for goals that are important and meaningful

This is the 24th in a series of posts in which I share thoughts on a book that has inspired me over the years. 

If you’re like me, some of your 2022 New Year’s Resolutions showed up dead on arrival and, three weeks into the new year, some of the others are on life support.

The late Jim Rohn, a legend in the field of human motivation, give us this acid test to apply to floundering goals. Are they truly important? Are they truly meaningful?

If the answer to either of those questions is No, then perhaps that goal should be dropped so you can focus more of your time and energy on a smaller number of goals where the answer is Yes. 

Here’s another test. It’s from a sign I saw posted in a retail shop that read: If your goals don’t scare you, they are not big enough. 

But here’s the thing about big scary goals – the difference between courageous and crazy is usually evident only long after the fact.

Courageous Leadership for an Age of AnxietyQuint Studer, Founder of the Studer Community Institute, asked me to record a one-hour video on Courageous Leadership for an Age of Anxiety. We’ve now separated this into ten 6-minute segments. 

These are posted on the Stay Strong For Us website. Scroll down past the free Stay Strong For Us eBook and featured presentations. You can watch all ten in sequence or pick and choose topics. These are ideal for sparking conversation at group huddles and staff meetings.
