PURPOSE Create A Ripple Effect

Craig Johns talks about PURPOSE, create a ripple effect and the importance of knowing your WHY, VISION, MISSION and VALUES.

Have you ever wondered what the most successful people in the world have in common? They have absolute clarity on their vision!

It is very difficult to find your destination, when you don’t know what it is. To be able to gain clarity on your vision, you first need to understand your purpose in life.

Why do you get up each day with a  spring in your stride, what fuels your fire, what brings a smile to your face?

Today we are going to explore why you need to understand your purpose so you can be a world class leader who is creating a ripple effect.

Why – Vision – Mission – Values

Let’s start with your Why, your Purpose in life

What is your reason for existence as a human being? What is your intention and objective that you want to achieve in life? Why have you been put on this planet?

How can you create a ripple effect through your employees, team members and people of influence?

Focus on something bigger than just yourself. Determine what your companies or your own real purpose is in life. Your why or your companies why?

What work can you do to serve that purpose and leave a positive mark or dent on the world? The WHY is the purpose, cause or belief that drives every one of us.

Vision

What is your destination? What does the future look like? What does success look like in 5, 10, 20, 30 or 100 years time?

Does your vision inspire you, challenge you and make you feel a little bit or a whole lot uncomfortable? (for the right reasons?)

My vision:

“DEVELOP HIGH PERFORMING LEADERS WHO POSITIVELY IMPACT PEOPLE AROUND THE WORLD”

Mission

What is the reason and path you will take to get to your vision? What is your intention and how you will do it?

The mission must be simple and easy for people to understand the path that you will take and why you will take it to achieve the vision.

My mission:

“TRANSFORMING INFLUENCERS INTO BEING HIGH PERFORMING LEADERS”

Values

What is your DNA? What are the core values that you will base decisions and beliefs on?

What will you be consistent with so your are congruent with your message and who your are?

My values:

BUILD YOUR OWN TRIBE

Build Your OWN TRIBE – who are the mentors, coaches & people in your proximity

The recent events have led to a lot of self reflection, you realise you need to upskill and upgrade, but you don’t feel like you  have the right people around you to make the change

We usually surround ourselves with two types of people. First the cheerleaders and like minded-people who give us comfort through telling us what we want to hear and two those who distract us with negativity and lack of hope.

It is important to surround ourselves with people who ask the thought provoking questions, keep us accountable and ensure we stay true to our mission.

BUILD YOUR OWN TRIBE

Who are the mentors, coaches & people in your proximity?

  1. Identify and write down a list of every skill you want to upgrade
  1. Write down a list of people and/or types of people you need in your proximity to upgrade those skills
  1. Write down 3 curious questions that you would like to ask each person and make a phone call or send an email and ask for a virtual coffee

Natalia Cohen (Losing Sight of Shore) – Embracing the Unknown Presents Endless Opportunities

active CEO Podcast #23 Natalia Cohen Embracing The Unknown Presents Endless Opportunities

Natalia Cohen – Losing Sight of Shore

On this episode of the active CEO Podcast, Craig Johns has a conversation with Natalia Cohen about choosing how we feel, what it takes to row across the Pacific Ocean, lessons taken from overcoming major challenges and embracing the uncomfortable. We discuss strategies on how to minimise conflict, the power of the mind and what it takes to achieve your dreams and goals.

Background

Natalia Cohen is an incredibly resilient, tenacious, ground-breaking and pioneering lady, who has defined logic by purposefully losing sight of shore.

When most people are looking for a goal to challenge themselves physically, mentally and spiritually, they decide to run a marathon, do a triathlon or visit a new country, not this young lady, she decided to row across the Pacific Ocean from San Francisco to Cairns with 3 (plus 2 who would join later in the adventure) other people she did not know. Yes you heard that right! That’s 257 days or 9 months at sea, covering 8759 nautical miles with a stopover at Honolulu, Hawaii and Apia, Samoa.

Known forher nomadic approach to life, she has now lived in 60 countries, working in thetravel and tourism industries. From Tanzania to Peru, she has seen the world,but nothing like the beauty, power, isolation and serenity of the vastness ofthe Pacific Ocean.

She is now a known inspirational speaker, workshop facilitator and mindset coach continuing to travel the world and sharing her insights, Through the Eye of the Nomad.

Losing Site of Shore

Natalia talks about:

  • Having supportive parents who encouraged her toexplore her passions and do things she love.
  • Our mind can control almost anything in our lives.
  • First taste of ultimate freedom, travelling to aplace all on her own, to the other side of the world where if I liked a place Istayed, if I didn’t like the place, I left.
  • Her mother being the catalyst to being a global tourleader.
  • The opportunity that something incredible mighthappen that day
  • Learning a lot of her life skills through being partof the travel industry.
  • Being thrown into situations where you are immersedin very different cultures, languages, the unknown, being surrounded by a lotof alien situations.
  • Learning to appreciate that a lot of things in lifeare out of our control, and we can only control the controllable.
  • When you deal with challenges, you learn and grow.
  • Seeing the advert with Laura looking for team matesto row across the pacific.
  • The recruitment process including interviews with sportpsychologist, Keith Goddard and completing SAS type drills.
  • The last thing we wanted was four women on a pinkboat being rescued.
  • Doing sea-survival skills, capsize drills, 24hrpractice rows, and strict strength and conditioning programs.
  • It was 90% mental training that we needed to havefor the expedition.
  • We had to get to know each other inside out. Weshared our hopes and our fears.
  • Entering and about to embrace the unknown in anextreme way possible.
  • We just rowed off into the darkness.
  • The first ten days were probably the mostchallenging.
  • We all had our own mental demons that we had tobattle.
  • Making light of the situations out there and makethe girls smile and laugh.
  • The most powerful thing out there is that we havethe ability to choose how we feel.
  • Trust and respect were something that I think reallyhelped us cross the ocean.
  • What holds people back from achieving the life anddreams that they really desire.
  • The ability to look for the positive, even if justonce a day. Stop and reflect each day

“The 6 people who came to the project didn’t know eachother. They were very different people with different backgrounds and diversepersonality types. The learning how to work together and how to bring out thebest in each other. Understanding what brought out the worst in us. That was ahuge part of the project. They got very used to giving each other constructivefeedback, because out on the boat in the middle of nowhere, there is nowhere torun and nowhere to hide. ” Building a strong team with Natalia Cohen on theactive CEO Podcast.
