LIFE develops leaders. How? Through reading, listening, and associating with other leaders. Leadership is as much caught as taught and modeling is essential. Dan Hawkins, for instance, went from a shy young man to a leader of leaders. This is what the LIFE community does in a person's life. Orrin Woodward states a person either hates losing enough to change or hates changing enough to lose. Clearly, Dan hates losing. Here is Dan's article.
Why the LIFE business focuses on developing leaders
Orrin Woodward says, “everyone is called upon to lead in some capacity sooner or later in life.” John Maxwell is famous for saying “everything rises and falls on leadership.” Everything we do in life comes down to leadership. Raising a family, managing fiancees and succeeding in business. I could create a long list but I think you are getting the point that leadership matters in all areas of life. Leadership could be compared to the foundation of a house or building. The bigger the house or taller the building the more important the foundation becomes. If I just want a pavilion a thin cement slab will do, however, a sky scrapper requires a much more elaborate foundation. The same hold true in your life, the higher you want to rise the more important leadership becomes.
When you look around at politics, churches, families and culture in general it is evident that we have a lack of leadership. Orrin Woodward and Oliver DeMille have just pre-released the book; Leadershift: A Call for Americans to Finally Stand Up and Lead. This book is a wake up call to all Americans that leadership matters and is desperately needed. The LIFE business is a group of leaders who have decided to take on the responsibility to go out and help people from all walks of life build their leadership skills to help us make a difference.
Why chose the LIFE Business to build leadership
So why LIFE? If leadership is truly that important it makes sense to say we all should be working on improving our leadership abilities. One problem for me, where do I start? Who will teach me? When I looked around me I did not see anyone getting the results in life I wanted. I had no examples to follow and had no idea where to start.
The LIFE Business is a systematic, self directed leadership education program to help people develop themselves. We have LIFE LIVE seminars, subscriptions, LIFE Library and countless audios, videos and books to dive into your education. One of the keys to the success of people in the LIFE Business are the people, let me explain. At LIFE we focus on building a community of customers and members for each business owner. This gives you a live community to test what you are learning. The better you get in your leadership skills the more customers you develop and members you have following you. You also will get to work directly with others who are farther down the road that can mentor and coach you based on what they have learned.
I love attending the LIFE Live seminars because we have people from all walks of life learning together. Some are just customers of this great information wanting to associate with like minded people, while others are focused on creating an income stream using the LIFE Business. The stories of customers using this information to get promoted, get a new job, save a marriage or get out of a finical crisses are growing daily. I can not make it one day without hearing of someone new getting a better life through better information.

A quick leadership lesson from the LIFE Business
Here are the three foundation qualities to becoming a leader from the best selling book, Launching A Leadership Revolution by Orrin Woodward and Chris Brady
1) Hungry: Hunger itself is one of the biggest facets of leadership. Take time to develop the hunger to grow and learn. How do we do that? Start by finding your dream or reason to do more and get better, this will drive the hunger to learn.
Humility is crucial to hunger. I like to say it is hard to be hungry when you are full of yourself! Aim for a station in life that is higher then where you are today and hunger will fill the gap, unless you think you already know it all! But then again to know and not to have is really not to know at all!
2)Hone-able: Hone: to sharpen or smooth with a whetstone or to make more acute, intense, or effective.
Hone-able follows hunger because you need to understand you don’t know what you don’t know. Chris Brady says: you can not take your same old self into a bright new future. Be willing to change to get where you want to go.
3)Honorable: Living a life of integrity and character is timeless, and for a leader, absolute necessary. The most effective leaders throughout history have led with their hearts, in trust and with honor.
I hope you take up the calling in your heart to start leading in LIFE! We welcome you to the LIFE Business!
