Team Is Coming To Milwaukee

21 07 2012

There is less than one week to go before the summer leadership convention for Team Life and things are being put in place for never before seen growth. The founders of Life Orrin Woodward, Chris Brady, Tim Marks, George Guzzardo, Claude Hamilton, Bill Lewis, and Dan Hawkins, will be in the house along with special guest speakers Oliver DeMille speaking on freedom and Mark Macdonald talking on fitness.

As we approach the kickoff Friday night I am shaking with excitement as I learn more about what will be laid out. I heard a Life Founder this past week say we are going to help a new person start their own business as cost effective as possible! (Unless you own a smart car, it’s a tank of gas!) With the first of the two conventions taking place as this writing is happening, I want to know what you are most looking forward to coming out of Milwaukee?! I look forward to seeing you all and I am excited for a group of people that are about to make a difference not only in their own lives but the world.

Mental Fitness Challenge In Your Life

16 05 2012

In April the Founders of LIFE launched the Mental Fitness Challenge (MFC) as a way for people to grow mentally, setting goals growing in a step-by-step toward the life they always wanted to live. In my three plus decades on this earth I have found that those that are most successful are the ones who set goals and challenge themselves to get better on their quest to hitting those goals. The MFC is designed to give people a roadmap to plan a course for those things they always wanted to achieve in their life but maybe started to think impossible.

These LIFE Founders are the best guys to design a program for improving oneself mentally because they have practiced this idea for years before putting this concept out there for others to follow. Here are a few of there examples:

Cluade Hamilton tells the story of how he used mental toughness to stay the course in a very difficult Navy dive school.

Orrin Woodward has many examples of this toughness but the one that sticks out in my head is the process he used for expanding his lungs to stay under water long enough to break a buddy’s underwater swim record.

Chris Brady admits he was outgunned as compared to his classmates while going to college. He developed a system of disciplined study that allowed him to compete with his classmates.

Tim Marks‘s work ethic and discipline helped him go from extreme debt to a seven figure income in thirty-one months.

These are just a few of the stories from the leaders that make up the company that is going to go to one million people and beyond. These guys are also leading many couples mentoring them to challenge themselves mentally to grow in pursuit of reaching there goals and dreams.

So how about you? What are some things that you have done or are doing to challenge yourself to become a better you? Nothing teaches better than a story so let’s hear yours!

Borrowing From The Best

17 01 2012

A few years ago I taught with a guy who was the best teacher I had ever come across. I asked him what made him so good and his response floored me, “Find out what other good teachers do and steal their stuff.” Speaking tongue and cheek the guy who was most respected for his effective teaching methods, work ethic, and relatability was very quick to give the credit away.

Leadership is the same thing, find out what others are doing well, learn from them, and implement their stuff. I put together a list of men and women in leadership development that I respect. I look to their leadership blogs often for a way to “sharpen the saw” so to speak, making my LIFE journey in the 8F’s run a little more smooth.

Enjoy their these great leadership blogs, but do me a favor, please come back to my site once in awhile:)

Can Switching To LIFE-Team really Improve Your Finances?

28 11 2011

It is said if you want something different you must do something different. Sounds simple enough, but as we all know knowing and doing are two different things. Albert Einstein is credited with saying that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. Orrin Woodward, Chris Brady, Cluade Hamilton, and Tim Marks, the Founders of LIFE, have produced financial information that is helping so many people do something different to get off the insanity of the financial train wreck.

What is LIFE/TEAM all about? How about helping people get information they have long been searching for but don’t have any idea where to look. I can attest to numerous couples who have listened to the financial pack offered by LIFE using the principles taught to help them on a path of financial security.

Is this information needed? This past Thanksgiving I went to my hometown and spent some time with family/friends. I was amazed at how many things that were said in casual conversation about money that everyone should know but do not. The statistics are stagering on our debt crises. As a whole our knowledge of money and how it can work for us or against is poor at best. Before learning the principles on the LIFE-Maximize Your Finances pack I realized I was “throwing my money out the window”.

The Maximize Your Finances Pack has LIFE leaders teach the sound principles they learned and implemented to improve their financial situations. LIFE founder Orrin Woodward has created leadership material that is helping thousands of people improve all their 8F’s.  Getting Finances in order can help people have a better quality of life in all areas of life.

This funny skit below is a good first step to improve our finances. It’s a good start!  Enjoy, Steve Leurquin
