If you have been following this series, you have filled at least three pages in your Design a Life of World Impact notebook. To recap, you have done the following:
The final step toward designing a life of world impact is the one that will keep you on track. It will prevent you from being distracted by temptations, and increase the laser-like focus you need to fulfill your goals.
It takes courage and belief to say no to opportunities that are presented to you – especially those that promise quick money or shortcuts to success. It is important that you run as far away as you can, as quickly as you can, from anything that will distract you from continuing to pursue your passions and your BHAGs.
A great example of this is Richard Branson. He literally turned down a speaking engagement with a payoff of $500,000 for one hour. Why? Because speaking for a fee was not one of his top three strategic imperatives at the time.
If you’re like me you’re thinking, how in the world could anyone turn down a one hour speaking engagement that paid half a million dollars? Well, I’ve decided to close out this four part blog series with a HUGE Bonus surprise that answered the question for me.
My good friend, Darren Hardy, is the publisher of SUCCESS Magazine and a mentor coach to super achiever CEOs around the world. Darren had the opportunity to personally interview Sir Richard Branson, Joel Osteen, and Warren Buffett – three model examples who use the power of FOCUS and have the discipline to say NO to the good in order to preserve room for the GREAT. The GREAT is the BHAGs (big hairy audacious goals) that you’ll pursue along your path to world impact. Click the link below to hear a private conference call that I hosted with Darren where he revealed key insights and wisdom that were shared by each of these super achievers.
