Personal mastery is the core! If you get the personal mastery element right, everything else falls into place!
Here in lies the mantra of the new LIFE business. Everything rises and falls on the individual being the best individual they can be. We cannot collectively be anymore than the sum of ourselves, so when the individual improves the rising tide raises all the ships.
I'm sure you've noticed that the world is currently going through a transitional period. There are elements we grew up with on their way out, and a new era is painfully being born. As the old crumbles in decay, a new phoenix will rise from the ashes. It's like the shift from the agrarian age to the industrial age, jobs and careers are being slowly replaced with something else. The globalization of business has also created a wave of change, coupled with unknown side effects. The difference between the "haves" and the "have nots" will shift on these paradigms.
Governments are confused with the new set of challenges they face. Where we used to celebrate and insist upon diversity, they now look to compliance based cultures with diversity as a problem to be solved. In the confusion they want a "level playing field," because they don't know how to handle the chaos of innovation. They seek predictability and control where the excitement of the dawn of a new age creates a quandary in their minds. We are at a fork in the road.
The people or organizations that will survive are those who adapt, think differently, and react. The changes that lie ahead will demand personal change. We are fast approaching the moment when everyone will realize that learning organizations will come out on top. This is where those who dedicate themselves to personal mastery will reap the rewards. So that begs the question; how have you aligned yourself to win under these circumstances?
