Extra Points ~ Staying Power

This week’s focus point…Staying Power14_02_DanCapJackRetouch_001

This past Friday evening, I was driving back from Portland after a 3-day conference. It’s a 3 hour drive at night, and it’s a great time for me to relax and listen to some music. I found myself singing along with Nat King Cole to Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas. YES, I admit I listen to Christmas music during this time of year. I guess I’m just a sentimental kind of guy at heart…

As I was listening to the silky smooth voice of Mr. Cole, it dawned on me that he passed away a long time ago. Doing a little research, I see that it was only 15 days after I was born. A little simple math puts it at just under half a century. Yet his voice has carried on his spirit for 5 decades and can be heard on radios and Internet all over the world to the delight of many. Now THAT is staying power!

Mr. Cole’s voice was his “brand;” his message. He was so gifted and talented that it will endure forever.What gift or talent do you have that extends past your being present? It could be your talent that improves revenue growth for a business; creates opportunities for others to excel; or perhaps it’s a product you developed that brings joy to others that has no expiration date.

We all have unique gifts and talents to share with others through our personal and professional work. Even though we may not qualify as world-renowned crooners, we do have the opportunity to create a lasting effect on our craft. The key is how we make others better because of our efforts.

My question to you this week is – who’s singing to your music!

Welcome to the most powerful and dynamic program I’ve ever created for business owners and executive leaders on unleashing your vast potential and maximizing your own unique talent and that of those around you.

My concept of the “open gate” is that unlike dogs, we as humans often tether ourselves inside our own personal gates and due to our own self-imposed limitations and fears, choose not to risk going through the open gate in front of us. The results include dissatisfaction, low self-esteem, poor leadership, bad morale, inefficiencies, and boredom. Bottom line is you and your business leave money and talent on the table.
