I Challenge You to Lead Your Own Life

I Challenge You to Lead Your Own Life

I challenge you to lead. To lead your own life, and be who you are. Take on something big. Put your stake in the ground for something that inspires you and moves you—something that doesn’t yet exist in your sphere.  To recreate and alter your reality, something that would make a difference.

Do you ever stop and wonder—regarding the circumstances of your life—“How did I wind up here? I thought I’d be somewhere else at this point in my life, be something else at this point.” Do you have a sense that you are living life “by default?” Playing it safe and coasting now that you’re at the top? Ask yourself, why are you not living this precious, one life you have to the fullest?

Heraclitus of Ephesus, more than 2000 years ago, in 5th Century BC Greece,  said: “Your character is your fate.” Amazing! And, conversely,  I suppose that your fate, or future, is your character. I don’t mean the future when it happens (positively this will affect you)—I mean right now, today, what is your future?

It shapes and defines you.

Imagine yourself six months from now, living the experience of all your goals. How does this make you feel? Excited? Joyful? Rich?

A leader develops his character by taking on something big. Something he didn’t think was possible.

Since you’ve read this far, I’ll share a life hack with you. To make new goals part of your reality, not only do we (as humans) rely on our self-confidence, we allow threads of evidence to appear in our day to day experience. We must trust. If it seems impossible, you must do the work!

The New Science of Leadership

The New Science of Leadership

I just typed in “leadership” on amazon.com and found over 200,000 entries! Google has over 4 million.

It seems that everyone has something to say about leadership. And yet looking at the world today, from business to government, leadership is missing. What’s more, it is missing that it is missing. More information, strategies, characteristics, styles to copy don’t make a leader. A new approach is required.

From the content of our “Being a Leader” Course Part I:

The Four Foundational Factors of being a leader are

  1. Integrity
  2. Authenticity
  3. Being up to something bigger than oneself
  4. Cause in the matter

We promise

You will leave the course being a leader and exercising leadership effectively as your natural self-expression, in any leadership situation and no matter the circumstances.

Being a Leader and the Effective Exercise of Leadership
An Ontological/Phenomenological Model

  • Ontology: study of the nature of being
  • Phenomenology:  study of consciousness and the objects of direct experience.

What You Master with Barry Pogorel

WHAT YOU MASTER | From Idea to Impact: Inspiration in Action

In our work together, you discover the levers and dials of creating Revolutionary Results: the science of translating an idea, even an Impossibility—a breakthrough—into reality.

This begins with a Reinvention of yourself in the following sense: What got you to where you are now—your legacy ways of thinking, planning, and action—circumscribe the domain of “what is possible” for you. How strange that your greatest strengths are at the same time your greatest limitations!

Reinventing yourself means to identify these habitual approaches, putting them aside, and discovering a world of new of possibilities and actions that enable you to produce something Revolutionary. Suddenly the present and future become malleable and the scope of what can happen expands.

And, the Reinvention of an organization, of a team, begins with the Reinvention of its leaders first. The next level repeats the individual Reinvention at the level of group and organization. What are the legacy, cultural ways of thinking, planning, and acting? Identifying and then putting these aside, what Impossibilities will you take on as a team, as a company? Imagine releasing the brilliance of an entire group or enterprise, aimed at some Revolutionary result?

We call this a Science for this reason: my approach is a rigorous, reliable method for accomplishment. After we put aside the past-based strategies that you/your team/your organization have used, we then discover the tools, principles, and laws of Revolutionary Performance.

We use the word Discovery in this sense: what you discover for yourself belongs to you. It has a different value, utility, and power when it is yours.

So our method, our approach is the Discovery of the Science of Accomplishing the Revolutionary.
