What a way to close out 2011 and start 2012! Penny and I along with several of the top leaders on Team Stealth – led by Dan and Lisa Hawkins, were invited by Orrin Woodward to spend a day at his property and go out on his recently renovated yacht! Sunny skies and an ocean breeze with temps in the ’80s for new years…. It was certainly a first for me.
A wonderful and unexpected part of the trip came when Dan told us that Orrin had gotten word that he was named in the top 10 of the IAB (Independent Association of Business) awards for his leadership blogs of 2011. The crazy part is that Orrin told Dan “… if we do this right, we could be at the top of that list in ten years!” Only to get word moments later, that he in fact was named #1 on that list!!!
I think the world is waking up to the fact that Orrin is the man he appears to be: A true visionary, humble hungry student and character driven leader that fully plans to be a change agent for the restoration of western civilization! Sound kinda ‘heady’? Than read his new book Resolved: 13 Resolutions for Life and/or listen to any of the many his LIFE recordings that The-LIFE-Business has to offer, and find out for yourself!
To learn more about the award, check out Chris Brady’s blog and how he found out. Here’s just a snippet of what Chris had to say about Orrin in that blog:
People don’t always like to be told the truth. The rules of success are hard and merciless. People often choose to blame the messenger instead of facing the mirror. But Orrin Woodward is not a student of convenience, nor a cohort of mediocrity, but rather a revolutionary for personal developmental excellence and a “no excuse” lifestyle of greatness. Whereas in many cases these would be mere high-sounding words, in the case of Orrin Woodward they are well deserved.
So the question remains; Who are you following into the new year in order to improve your thinking – and thus, better results? I would say that my answer is quite bias, but the IAB (which has no affiliation with Team and/or Life) thinks otherwise.
God bless, John Graff
