From :Think Truth In Spite Of Appearances | Andrew Hines.
“I wanted to point out something incredibly important.
Wallace Wattles once said that “there is no labor that more men shrink from than the labor of continued and consecutive thought”
In other words..
Thinking about our vision is literally the hardest thing that we could do.
It’s much easier to swing a hammer… scrub the dishes or watch the TV.
So why is this important?
Well.. it’s all about wiring our brains to think the way we want to think.
Almost every self development leader will agree that our results are a product of our thoughts.
So if we want a better life, or to achieve certain goals… we have to think about our lives when those things are accomplished first.
We have to be certain and detailed.
If we never take the time to think it… odds are, we’ll never get it. Its like a boat in the ocean without a rudder, hoping to make it safely to the other side.
Today, and for the next thirty days, make it a point to write out your vision exactly as you want it.
Be clear on that and you will literally attract the opportunities to get you there “…..
“All CEOs lead their companies: that’s line No. 1 in the job description. But only a small subset also lead their industries and the wider world toward new visions and potentially brighter futures.
Stern & Associates, a Cranford, New Jersey public-relations firm whose clients include uber-visionary Clayton Christensen, advises business leaders who want to become known as thought leaders.
Inc. editor-at-large Leigh Buchanan spoke to the firm’s group vice president Ned Ward about how he advises clients to think big–and put it out there.
Define thought leader.
I would define a thought leader as someone who stands above subject-matter expertise and is an authority in their field. And they have to be able to prove that expertise with a track record. Think of it this way: subject-matter expertise resides within a company. Thought leadership resides within an industry. Thought leaders provide clarity, especially to industries that are in flux. They teach. And they have more ambitious goals. Thought leaders want to start a movement. Change the world. ”
