Are you Blob or a Wheel in The Circle of LIFE?
The Circle of LIFE an Article Orrin Woodward, one of the world's top 25 Leadership Gurus just posted, helps people understand what the LIFE Business stands for. Chris Brady is the author and states in that article:
"In each of the 8 F categories of Faith, Family, Finances, Fitness, Following, Freedom, Friendship, and Fun, one can imagine a certain grade based upon how one is doing in that category. In the diagram the center represents horrible, as in, you are totally “stinking up the joint” (as my kids say) in a certain category. Working your way out from the center to the outer ring in any of the categories represents a stronger grade. So someone with a dot near the outer ring is doing well in that category. By connecting the dots on your subjective personal estimation of your life at this moment in each of the categories you can come up with a shape that roughly represents your life right now in each of the 8Fs.
Quite simply, the LIFE business supplies life-changing information to help you increase your score in each of the 8Fs. The goal is to take someone from the not-so-good black shape represented toward the center of the diagram to the much improved (and happier, we would think) life represented by the red outline toward the outer ring of the circle.
Who doesn’t have at least a category or two, or three, or eight, in which he or she would like to have a better score? Who wouldn’t want to transform his or her life from the tiny blob (and who among us hasn’t felt like a tiny blob from time to time?) in the center to the big wheel (and who hasn’t wanted to be a big wheel at least once in his or her life?) toward the outer ring?
That’s it. From little blob to big wheel."
I challenge you as an American, or some who lives in America the "Home of the Brave and the Land of the Free" to be all you can be and to grow yourself to your potential. The toughtest thing you will have to face will not be personal growth in the areas of the 8 f's. It will be at the end of your LIFE, the man or woman you are, meeting the man or woman you could have been. Be a circle not a blob!
