This session is about pointing people towards opportunity: opportunity that appears in a variety of different ways.

  • Clock Dial
  • Where are you on the face of the clock dial?
  • What are you going to do about it?
    • High noon is the best moment in your life
      • Personal relationships
      • Physical fitness
      • Health
      • Finances
      • Self esteem
      • Personal growth and development
      • When you are at high noon, you have the greatest degree of influence that you will have than when you are at any other place on the clock dial
      • High noon is your moment of greatest opportunity, not to be squandered
      • It is fleeting: high noon lasts for one second
      • Realize that things, in fact, are going to change
    • Three O’clock is when something has changed, but only you know it
      • The magic of three is that you still have the same influence on others that you had a high noon
      • Most do not have the ability to harvest that influence because they are aware of the change, and fear will begin to have an impact almost immediately
      • Due to pride, ego, and arrogance, we try to hide the fact of the change, when the exact opposite would create the greatest value in our lives
    • Six O’clock is when something has changed, and it has become evidenced to other people
      • Now, influence has changed
      • When it becomes evident, something must be done to cauterize the wound
    • Nine O’clock is when everything is in chaos
      • Believe it or not, it can get worse
      • You do have a choice
    • Carefully Contemplate
      • Where are you on the face of the face of the clock dial?
      • What are you going to do to improve it?
        • Improving it requires concrete, positive action
      • Are you doing that which is required to have the hands of the clock dial move in a direction that is good for you?
        • Are you eating up savings or incurring debt? This is hastening the hands of the clock dial in a negative direction
        • Or, are you saving and investing even the tiniest bit? This is moving the hands of the clock dial in a positive direction
  • The Vehicle
  • The keys to the creation of a large income all depend upon the type of vehicle that we select
    • Choose a vehicle in which the creation of a large income is at least theoretically possible
    • Find a vehicle that is moving the direction that you want to go
      • If the vehicle that we are in is going backward, we are not going to go forward
    • Find a vehicle that is going the speed that you would like to grow
      • Realize that that there is no such vehicle that goes fast today, that will be going fast tomorrow
    • Find the kind of vehicle in which the ultimate destination is known, but is not dependent on you
      • Add your value so that it arrives at that destination more quickly, in order to impact more people for good
    • Just getting in the vehicle does not mean that you are going to grow
      • Recognize that simply being in the vehicle is not enough; it can move forward, leaving you behind
    • Do not simply occupy: grab the driver’s wheel and push your foot on the gas!
  • What are the expressions of leadership?
    • Clock Dial
      • Do a candid self-appraisal
        • Know and understand the direction of the clock dial in your life
      • To help those who turn to us for leadership, we can draw the clock dial and advise:
        • What are you doing to make sure the hands are moving in your direction?
    • The Vehicle
      • Make the required changes such that your company can begin to go forward
      • Help the company in its moment of challenge
      • Make your group such an attractive place to be that even if it takes months to make money, even if a few more things have to change, your group is such an extraordinary place to be that they wouldn’t contemplate leaving
