Leadership Lesson Plan:
Elevate Your View Through Life Exploration

Leaders are life-long learners who seek out leadership lesson plans and activities that encourage striving to experience new frontiers in your life.

life exploration

The life exploration process is one of the best ways to keep your life interesting and fresh. In order to be a life-long learner, you should seek new experiences and challenges on a regular basis.

Where you are today is not so important as where you are going next.

The sum of all your past decisions have placed you directly where you are today. The choices you make now and going forward will determine where you’ll be 5 to 10 years from now.

If you don’t like where you are today, then now is the perfect time to choose a new path.

A leadership lesson plan encourages every individual to believe that in one moment of decision, or one single action, a person’s entire life can be transformed.

"Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no hope at all."

- Dale Carnegie

Take some time to thoughtfully consider where you want to be in this world, the steps you need to take to get there – and, begin the journey.

Once you have a clear view of how you want your future to unfold, and you stand committed to achieving your goal - persistence will eventually prevail.

One of the problems many people face is that they look at successful people and believe “that could NEVER be me.” What you must understand is that every person who says this – is absolutely right. (Yes, you read that right.)

However, it is also true that every person who believes “that WILL happen for me” is also 100% correct.  (Yes, it’s a matter of personal decision.)

Greatness Through Persistence

Be on the lookout for a common theme in the following success stories:

Muhammad Ali – the greatest professional boxer that ever lived had to fight the U.S. Government and the boxing associations to realize his dream.

His belief was so strong that despite the threat of becoming imprisoned and financially broke, he persevered to become one of the most successful and beloved figures in sports history.

Muhammad Ali started with nothing but talent, a dream, resolute will, and a certain belief system, yet he managed to break through barriers and achieve tremendous success. 

Oprah Winfrey was raised in a poor and abusive household, and got her first start on TV as a weather girl.  She went on to host morning TV, then spent 25 years with a highly successful talk show, and now owns a TV network and is one of the wealthiest women in the world.

Emeril Lagasse worked in a Portuguese bakery in Massachusetts before becoming a famous chef, author and businessman.

None of these people were born wealthy, yet their hard work and strong belief in their own abilities made them wildly successful in their chosen fields.

The common theme and key take away from a solid leadership lesson plan is that a person’s belief in one’s self, paired with a resolute willpower are the two major factors in determining your outcome.

The only thing achieved by doing nothing, is nothing. So step out of your comfort zone. In fact, get so uncomfortable that change will be inevitable. The payoff will more than make up for that initial discomfort you feel from stepping into the unknown.

Remember, it’s your life, your responsibility and your choice. You will receive total credit (or blame) for whatever outcome you realize. The moment that your life will change is the exact moment when you accept the responsibility that… “it all begins and ends, with me”.
