    Standing Tall

    W hat does it mean to stand tall? Leaders stand tall. Do you ever wonder how they do it? How does someone derive the courage to stand tall? Are people born with the ability to stand tall or do they learn and develop the ability? I believe that we are a product of our environment. I also believe that we have the choice to change the environment that we hang around in.

    Are you hanging out in a good crowd? Who do you regularly converse with? Are they a positive influence on your life? Are they a positive influence on your business? If the answer to either of the last three questions is no, it is time to make a change. Everyone should have a mentor. Someone who they look up to and can learn from. If your mentor can be a positive influence on both your personal life and your business life that is great. If they are stronger in one area or the other, pick the one they are strongest in and find a second mentor.

    I tend to gravitate toward people I admire and respect. I do not hang around people I do not respect. When I have the opportunity to spend time and listen to and learn from someone who has had unique and incredible accomplishments in their life, I grab ahold of that opportunity. By spending time and learning from that person you will

    grow. You will take with you some of their greatness and instantly improve yourself.

    What are you willing to do to improve yourself? It doesnt take as much work as you would actually think. Author Earl Nightingale said, One hour per day of study will put you at the top of your field within three years. Within five years youll be a national authority. In seven years, you can be one of the best people in the world at what you do. What is your level of dedication to what you are doing?

    I am often questioned about why I may decide to do certain things. The answer is usually pretty simple. Because the moment is right. During the past few years, the opportunity presented itself to bring to our association a great leader and have him speak at our annual meeting. There was also an opportunity to bring to our associations annual meeting one of the greatest treasures in international diplomacy the world has ever seen. By having business leader Jerry Colangelo speak, we have scored the game winning run. By having one of the most recognizable figures in the world, Meadowlark Lemon, at our annual meeting, we are announcing to the world that NADCA has arrived and we just hit the game-winning shot in overtime. Dont miss this opportunity to grow at the Wigwam in Phoenix with your fellow members.

    We are announcing to the world that NADCA is standing tall; we are ready and deserve to be taken seriously. In closing, I want to leave you with something else my father likes to say and especially liked to say when I was growing up: You are who you hang out with.

    Custom training is now available to
