Brian Williams on Igniting and Engaging your heroic talents
In June of 1992, I met a group of World War II veterans who had jumped into Normandy, scaled the cliffs at Point Du Hoc, and stormed the beaches of Normandy during an event called the “Ranger Rendezvous” at Fort Benning, GA. Nearly every veteran that I met on that day stated unequivocally that they were not heroes they were just doing what needed to be done. However, that is precisely why we would call them heroes-they were willing to sacrifice EVERYTHING in order to save their fellow soldiers and accomplish amission greater than themselves.
That personal encounter had a transformative effect on my life and future work as it allowed me to reflect on the meaning of heroism-selfless sacrifice in the service of a cause greater than yourself. It also invited me to gain perspective on how I could view my life and career as a vessel for creating positive change.
What I have found over the past 25 years is that every successful soldier, entrepreneur, sales professional, or business person that I have met was willing to sacrifice their time, talent, and treasure in pursuit of their most important values. Having worked with thousands of people either in leadership roles, academic research, coaching, or employment there is compelling, data-driven evidence that human beings are constantly driven to develop their most deeply ingrained skills and abilities. When we combine values, skills, and abilities together that is where we find the seeds of the heroic life.
Igniting and Engaging your Heroic Talents is more than just motivation. It is about constructing an action plan designed around solid business fundamentals that align your life and professional goals. This is important because if your personal life or family situation is going well, very often there is stress and anxiety in other areas like your career or health. Additionally, a great coaching program should equip you with tools that allow you to sustain actions, assess results, and grow for a lifetime. Your action plan will be built around measurable indicators that maximize your personal competitive advantage and create an expectation of attaining your professional goals.
I believe the seeds of the heroic life can be found in every human being and hope you will join me for a free 20-minute strategy session today and begin the process of Igniting and Engaging your Heroic Talents.
