Greetings, Summit Leaders. In part 1, we heard from a Summit Leader enjoying his first ten years at IBM and his vision for the next ten years. What's your strategy for resiliency? Great leaders focus on building a system in preparation for the inevitable challenges they know will come on their journey. "Yes, I know. It doesn't seem like it's been that long. I remember coming into IBM and sticking close to the adults in the room/mentors to learn enough to survive. Now when things get crazy, I look around and think, "I am the adult in the room." which is terrifying Ha-ha." "Things are going well, though. IBM has been pretty good to me, and I'm looking forward to the next ten years!" Summit Leader. It's beautiful to see leaders growing in their life and career. What will we all need to do to ensure the next ten years are more fruitful and prosperous? How can we ensure we are building resiliency in our lives and business? 1. Wisely choose where and how you will build your life, career, and business. 2. Select your advisors and accountability partners wisely. Someone once said, "You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with." "Walk with the wise and become wise, associate with fools, and get into trouble." 3. Inspect your foundation regularly for structural integrity. 4. Continue practicing the disciplines daily for successful building. Consistency in doing the right things has a compounding effect. 5. Keep your vision and seek your purpose. "If you are working on something exciting that you really care about, you don't have to be pushed. The vision pulls you." - Steve Jobs. 6. Practice mindfulness. We use our five senses, Sight, Sound, Smell, Taste, and Touch, to control our thinking. Being present, focused on the here and now, keeps us alert and allows us to concentrate on who we are - our identity. 7. Volunteer in serving. In the process, we gain a sense of belonging, community, and connection. Building delays are part of the process. Sometimes, things outside of the control of the builder require a pause. Weather conditions may cause delays. Wise builders understand that delays are not denials. Waiting is one of the hardest things to do when our vision for the building is in place, and the work is underway. Why wait? Timing and perspective are vital in life, career, and business. During the time of waiting, continue practicing what you know to do now. Our inclement conditions are tests to strengthen our resiliency for the journey ahead when building resumes. Many believe that waiting tests our character. "None of us can ever hope to get anywhere, to be of real use to ourselves, to our community or our country, unless we have the character, the moral courage, and the spiritual strength to accept responsibility. Strength of character is the one basic trait that will be found in all people who achieve greatness." - Thomas J. Watson, Sr. Believe that the best is yet to be. Keep your vision. Expect, anticipate, and prepare for the realization of the dream. It will surely come! Victory!
