You can teach what you know, but you reproduce what you are. It's your lifestyle that will dictate your true results in life. Your daily habits and core convictions. It's not desire, money, or management that matters when it comes to getting more. Not primarily. We ultimately need these resources, but that's not the core of it. What will the resources be used to accomplish? What or who will they attract? No, resources are the fuel of the engine, but they don't set the course.
Ultimately it's our core values, beliefs, and behaviours that matter. The most effective things we develop are not part of the five-year plan. It's the culture we influence by who we are and how we go about our business. Counterintuitively, we need to be more of what we'd like to see. To get more, we need to be more.
And so leadership is a lifestyle. Creativity is a lifestyle. Entrepreneurship is a lifestyle. The first step for those who want more this year is to be more of what they want. You can't skip that step.
