One of the greatest lessons we can teach our children is that of making a true “effort” in all areas of responsibility.
Isn’t it true that the main reason for any great success throughout history has been the result of a focused and persistent effort?
The lesson of making an “all-out” effort is one we need to continually remind ourselves of as we continue our leadership journey.
Once a person reaches a certain position, or level of success, it is very easy to settle in to the role and continue to manage things in a routine or mundane way.
If your ideal is to have your work and your career count for something special – then always put your entire self into it; your entire character, originality and individuality - into everything that you do.
Expect more of yourself as a leader than anyone else could possibly expect. In doing so, you will always stay on a path of success and personal growth.
The benefits of having superior self-expectations are plentiful. You will find that devotion to your work and your team members will pay handsome dividends; rewards in pay, was well as rewards in self-fulfillment.
Don’t allow yourself to simply copy what others are doing. While imitation can be perceived as a form of flattery; for the imitator it is a clear sign of weakness.
The man or woman who copies or imitates other people’s efforts is saying to the world that he does not believe himself; he does not believe himself to be fully capable of creating new and innovative ideas on his own.
It is a man’s vision, creativity and ability to work through his obstacles; who makes the extra effort to study all there is to know about his business; who employs originality into his systems – these are the marks of a man or woman who is worthy of the title “Leader”.
What you may NOT know, is that for the past year we’ve been diligently working on a brand new leadership series of audiobooks, based on the best and most valuable teachings of Dr. Marden.
But before we get into that, let’s get you in the right mood to learn more about this terrific new series – and to learn how YOU CAN GET A FREE AUDIOBOOK!

Orison Swett Marden is considered to be the true founder of the American success movement, which was at it's most popular in the late 1800's and early 1900's. Today’s most notable self-help experts continue to recognize Marden for his outstanding work.

"Your site, especially about team building, helped crystallize exactly what I need to focus on with our company's new team - that was just set up in another state. Thank you for helping me to understand how to address building a stronger team there."
"I'm in the midst of reading Goal Setting for Success E-Book. It's awesome!! Just over the past 24 hours, its already helping me with changing perspectives. I recently lost a business due to employee theft. I have had quite a struggle with this and great difficulty moving forward. While I know these things can be overcome, and certainly an opportunity to learn from mistakes, it was something that totally jolted my mind and emotions. I have been terrified to try again. This e-book is helping me to remember who I am, and helping me get my life back on track."
"Excellent! I am about 45 pages into the goals setting manual and I am very excited about my future. I hope to find as much motivation from the remaining books."
