There are many qualities that make a leader a leader and I will cover them over the course of the next month or so but I wanted to post this blog about four short words that sum up what has lifted most successful individuals above the crowd "a little bit more". They did all that was expected of them and a little bit more.

If you think about it, there really is no competition at the top. The top consistents of the three percenters who do "a little bit more". Most people think they can never attain greatness-and I understand the definition of greatness and success vary by individual- but if you knew, truly knew in your heart that you could be all and have all that you ever dreamed, what would your definition be? What little bit more would you do to get there? It isn't about luck, or smarts, or connections, or degrees, or location or circumstances or environment. It's about doing a little bit more than the average person on a daily and consistent basis. Making a little bit more of the right choices, that is what will get you what you want in life. Sitting around, hoping, praying, searching, playing the lotto. That won't get it for you. Making a decision TODAY, to do just a little bit more, to further your education, to invest in your future, to build your business, to nurture your children, to get healthy, that is the difference of a leader.

It starts with you. If you can lead yourself to greatness, you can lead an army.

And once you begin to lead, and you find your team duplicating, and others following, that is when you will join the three percenters who are leaders in this world.
