On This Day in Leadership History, January 10, 2016

Golden Rule StoreOn this day in leadership history in 1913, all partner interests in 36 Golden Rule Stores were consolidated and incorporated in Utah into one company. The new corporation was the J.C. Penney Company.

You have to admire the courage of the owners to name a store after the legendary principle of “doing unto others as you would have them do unto you.”

What honorable promise can your team or organization publicly commit to do for others? Lead the way!

Wrestling with a Personal Goal This Year? Remember This Important Point…

If you’re wrestling with a personal goal this year, the reality is that sacrifices will need to be made to achieve it. Period. On the positive side, though, giving up an old mindset or behavior can actually lighten the load mentally, emotionally, and physically! And it’s a great way to authentically lead others.

Years after my mom’s passing, she is still a legendary schoolteacher and leadership example in the community where I grew up. One of her students made her a sign that hung on a wall in her class and ultimately in our home. It said – “The elevator to success is not working. You’ll have to take the stairs.”

That sign made a great point, and seeing it often sealed in my mind the principle that success is usually a series of steps that require diligent, hard work for any profession. Keep pressing towards your goal in life and leadership—you can do it!

Retired U.S. Navy SEAL, Chris Sajnog, shares his “” below. Which one is the most important one for you this year? Please check them out and share your comments!

  1. Confident — A warrior is sure of himself and has no uncertainty about his own abilities.
  2. Decisive — Displaying no hesitation in battle is vital to survival.
  3. Strong — You need to have a determined will in all that you do. A strong mind can make up for a weak body, but not the other way around.

  5. Active — You need to be moving, doing, or functioning at all times. Ideas and theories are great, but action gets things done.
  6. Aggressive — Being forceful, bold, and energetic — not a pit bull with a bad owner.
  7. Disciplined — Once you have a plan and are confident that you can fulfill it, you must have the discipline required to stick with it.
  8. Vigilant — You never know when danger is going to come knocking, and you need to be prepared to react appropriately.
  9. Patient — Having patience means bearing pains or trials calmly or without complaint.
  10. Brave — Brave doesn’t mean you aren’t afraid. It means YOU ARE, but you continue in spite of your fears.
  11. Loyal — A warrior needs direction, and that comes from being faithful to a cause, ideal or institution. Loyalty will keep you guided along your path.
  12. Loving — A warrior has confronted death and understands the value of life. Warriors whose lives are in balance are peaceful, unselfish and compassionate of others. The love of family gives the warrior his energy to constantly train for battle and the strength to survive once he’s there.
