10 Inspiring Questions that Will Change Your Life and Leadership

I remember my pastor saying to me “Steve, as hard and painful as my cancer has been– it has taught me a sense of urgency as to how to live my one and only life“.

This season of life with COVID-19 and civil unrest has been hard and painful. It’s also pulled back the layers of trivial and provided a “sense of urgency”.

I’d like to offer you 10 Inspiring Questions that Will Change Your Life and Leadership:
Note: Please answer each one honestly and reflect on where you are right now and where you want to be.

1. Are you choosing a life of purpose that is greater than “making a living”– one that is significant?

2. Do you rise each day with a clear vision as to “your calling,” one that is uniquely yours?

3. Are you focused on 2-3 dreams of accomplishments in the next 12 months– and creating small steps to follow through?

4. Are you actively seeking out compelling reasons to succeed that have deep meaning, not just quick benefits?

5. Are you putting other people first– and displaying a servant attitude?

6. Are you focused on your top 2-3 gifts that allow the greatest impact, influence, and inspiration?

7. Are you seeking out an inner-circle of like-minded men and women that are 100% committed to difference-making?

8. Are you building a dream team that is lean, aggressive, committed, and believing in bold difference-making?

9. Are you committed to anticipating and embracing new innovations, new ways of thinking, and new opportunities to chart a path?

10. Are you clear with actions to take 8-10 new actions that fuel your heart, soul, and mind?

I’m excited for you. I believe our current discomfort can and will help you define even a better version of yourself– and your leadership. Take some time for you to reflect, review, and refine.
