a Clear Vision for Your Future
by: Brian Tracy
Only Leaders Can Do
The one quality that all leaders have in common is that they have a clear
and exciting vision for the future. This is something that only the leader
can do. Only the leader can think about the future and plan for the future
Develop A Clear Vision
Excellent leaders take the time to think through and develop a clear picture
of where they want the organization to be in one, three and five years.
Leaders have the ability to communicate this vision in such a way that
others "buy in" and eventually see the vision as belonging to
How To Motivate People
It is the vision of the future possibilities, of what can be, that arouses
emotion and motivates people to give of their best. The most powerful
vision is always qualitative, aimed at and described in terms of values
and mission rather than quantitative, described in terms of money. Of
course, money is important, but the decision and commitment to "be
the best you can be" is far more exciting.
Be A Great Team Player
A study at Stanford Business School examined the qualities that companies
look for in promoting person to the position of Chief Executive Officer.
The study concluded that there were two important qualities required for
great success in leadership. The first is the ability to put together
a team and function as a good team player. Since all work is ultimately
done by teams, and the managers' output is the output of the team, the
ability to select team members, set objectives, delegate responsibility
and finally, get the job done, was central to success.
Keep Your Cool
The second quality required for rapid promotion was found to be the ability
to function well under pressure, and especially in a crisis. Keeping your
cool in a crisis means to practice patience and self-control under difficult
or disappointing circumstances.
Everyone Is Watching
The character and quality of a leader is often demonstrated in these critical
moments under fire, when everyone is watching, observing and privately
taking notes. As Rudyard Kipling once said, "If you can keep your
head when all around you are losing theirs and blaming it on you, then
the world is yours and all that's in it".
Your duty as a leader is to have a clear vision of where you want to go
and then to keep your cool when things go wrong, as they surely will.
Here are two things you can do immediately to put these ideas into action.
First, project forward 3-5 years and imagine your ideal future vision.
What does it look like? What steps can you take immediately to begin turning
your future vision into your current reality?
resolve in advance that, no matter what happens, you will remain calm
and cool. You will not become upset or angry. You will take a deep breath
and focus on the solution rather than on the problem.

Good Exercise Habits
gyms and countless hours on a treadmill may be one way to exercise, but
wouldn't enjoying sunshine and fresh air while spending time with your
family be more fun? Well, here's a little insider tip gardening enthusiasts
have known for ages-gardening is great exercise.
the digging, lifting, pulling and twisting that happens as you garden
in your backyard or even in smaller container gardens uses major muscle
groups and helps you stay in shape," stated Charlie Nardozzi, chief
gardening officer consultant for Hilton Garden Inn hotels. "It makes
perfect sense. Turning compost is a great alternative to weight lifting.
Raking simulates the exact motions of a rowing machine. Mowing the lawn
is comparable to walking or jogging on the treadmill. And, digging and
shoveling are both aerobic and muscle building."
at Stanford University Center for Research in Disease Prevention show
that gardening provides light to moderate exercise. Depending on the activity,
30 minutes in the garden can burn the equivalent amount of calories as
30 minutes of light jogging. By exercising, you lower blood pressure and
cholesterol levels, which may help prevent diabetes and heart disease
and slow osteoporosis.
benefits of gardening are not limited to adults-for children, gardening
offers more than a reason to play in the dirt and some exercise. While
gardening, school subjects, such as science, history, economics and language
arts, come to life.
children the positive power of gardening, Nardozzi heads up the "Grow
A School Garden" program developed jointly by the Hilton Garden Inn
and National Garden Association. "The 'Grow A School Garden' project
both incorporates academic subjects as well as teaches vital life lessons
to children including cooperation, patience, persistence and responsibility.
It is also a great way to get them to eat fruits and vegetables."
