Hi I'm Drew Canole and welcome to another Mindset Monday, remember we're in this together. If you're ever in the San Diego area FitLifer, I want to invite you to work out or have a green drink with one of the people in our team, we've a group of compassionate people that are transforming millions of people's lives, we want to invite you to hang out with us. A young man recently came to me and he was looking for advice, he told me he wanted to be a leader, inspirational speaker, somebody that people looked up to, today I want to take the opportunity to share with you guys what I've learned throughout the years in leadership I want to give you three tools to become a better leader right here, right now. Tool number one, lead from the front, number two is to serve, and number three is to encourage. Number one leading from the front, what does that mean? Well, I'm going to talk specifically about protecting your followers. As a true leader, one finds himself in the front line, all of the time, oftentimes we have this misconception that the leader is just up there for visibility, he's not really doing anything, you have to lead from the front, you have to protect your followers. A little story I liked about Gandhi, a mother brought her son to Gandhi and asked Gandhi to tell her son not to eat sugar, Gandhi agreed and said 'okay, bring him back in two weeks' so in two weeks the mother agreed, brought her son back in two weeks, and Gandhi said 'alright son, stop eating sugar, sugar's bad for you' and the son and mother went home, the son gave up sugar right away, she was puzzled so she went back to Gandhi and said 'Gandhi, my son stopped, why didn't you just tell him in the beginning to stop eating sugar?' Gandhi said, 'well in order for me to tell somebody to stop doing something, I had to stop doing something. You see leadership is all about being congruent; a true leader is congruent in all of their teachings, if I'm going to teach you how to be physically fit Fitlifer, how to be emotionally in charge, how to be spiritually grounded, I better be demonstrating it in my own life. Number two is to serve, as a true leader, it's important to serve those around you, especially when it comes to a trivial task; the true leader serves in the background, it does things people don't normally see. As a leader, I always ask myself, who can I serve today, actually I have an alert on my cell phone that pops up every seven o' clock in the morning and if you're part of the Fitlife team you know, that it pops up and it says who am I going to serve today, who can I help, and it pops up it reminds me that I'm here on this mission, it reminds me that I'm here to encourage, to inspire, and to motivate people to make life-changing situations. Number three, let's talk about encouraging, as a true leader it's important to encourage those around you, people need to be praised when they're doing well, when followers, or fans are struggling, the leader is there to encourage to strive better. Also if there's ever a communication breakdown, the communication has to be open for the team member that is struggling on holding on to a project. You see, I've seen many projects go down in flames because somebody was embarrassed to simply say, you know Drew I've been struggling with this, I'm not able to do this, can you come in here and help me with this, then it's as easy as delegating it to somebody else who has the tools and technologies to get it done right away. So let's recap about this, number one was leading from the front, number two was to serve when it seems like a trivial task, and number three was to encourage.

Let's talk about who won the book last week, this week's book is the Twenty One Irrefutable Laws of Leadership by John Maxwell. John Maxwell has written a ton of really really good books, this is one of my favorites, it's something that you can implement, I would recommend going through it over the next twenty one days, John Maxwell's book is going out to Braven Corby, Braven congratulations, hopefully I see you one day up here as an inspirational speaker and leader doing your thing my friend. I'm Drew Canole, as always, remember we're in this together, and I'll see you next week.
