--- PRESCRIBING TRUTH AS CURE ---
Welcome to Life Leadership Lessons,
Is your current situation in life (or in business) frustrating, stuck or dysfunctional?
If so, you can be comforted that you are in good company with all the rest of us. Everyone is suffering at some level in some area even even though some people are really good at hiding it. Don't judge your insides on other people's outsides.
What gets us in these less than desirable situations? Nine out of ten times "we" do - we are most often are own worst enemy. We make bad decisions that at the time seemed like a "good one" and now we are living out the consequences of it. What makes it even more difficult is that it is easier for us to evlauate others than it is to evaluate ourselves. We are the enemy and we are the "hidden" enemy.
So how do we get out of our current situation and into the better situation?
Make better decisions.
Our progress is mostly based on our daily decisions whether those decisions are made consciously or unconsciously. Our decisions are only as good as the information that we base them on. Meaning, if you want a decision to be an 8 on the effective scale (0-10 high), the information you used to make that decision must be an 8 on the truth scale.
I believe most people are good decision makers and most people are poor information seekers or as I call them "truth-seekers".
So when trying to move forward we must take these steps:
1) Get in the truth about your current situation (where you are)
2) Get in the truth about your better situation (where you want to go)
3) Only then will the decisions that need to be made in the gap between #1 and #2 get perfectly clear
Sounds easy, but it's not.
How can we get in the truth about our situation trying to see it from the inside out. You can't see the forest looking through the trees. The eye just can't see the eye. We need each other to help see the truth about our situation. I always say we were designed to fail without the help of each other. But until we are ready to ask for help, we won't. It may be fear, embarrassment, shame or just pride that is keeping us from humbling ourselves and asking for help. But when the pain of our situation becomes greater than the pain of leaving our comfort zone, we will ask for help.
Next, we live in a world that is loud, disruptive and busy. Most of the communication taking place is just assumptions and vague generalities and we are basing decisions on this partial, distorted and false truth and then wondering why things don't work out for us. We are all too close to our situation. We are all "in a bubble" and the only one that can help us see objectively is someone in a different bubble. But getting to the truth of a matter is like digging for gold. We must be relentless and skilled to do the work of a truth speaker and truth seeker.
Life Leadership Lesson's expertise is seeking, facilitating and assembling the truth of a matter to use it for effective decision making. Once the forward movement of your situation begins we then go to work on training YOU to be skilled at the same: seeking, facilitating and assembling the truth of a matter to use it for effective decision making. It is impossible for you to attain your highest potential without getting to the truth.
For Life Consulting we use Life Leadership Lesson's methods to move you forward.
For Business Consulting we combine Life Leadership Lesson's methods with Organizational Development to move you and your business forward.
Hi Larry………. can’t thank you enough for all the clarity and help you are providing for me at our sessions. I really appreciate your commitment to Truth. I have truly lost my self somewhere along the way but am little by little feeling more empowered. This has been a huge grieving process for me and a real awakening. I like your energy and your approach, the certainty and strength that you have.
Thank you SO much,
Dear Larry,Wanted to let you know you helped my son and me tremendously this summer!!
I'm happy to say that we had a great summer and a successful start to the new school year.
Again, you were so great and my son has really taken what he's learned with you and applied it in many situations and even on a day to day basis.
We sought Larry’s assistance to address some problems in our small business partnership and ended up getting so much more. With Larry’s help, we were able to get to the bottom of all the inconsistencies, inefficiencies, and problematic assumptions which were in the way of being truly successful. But the real bonus was walking into Larry’s office for help with our business, and walking out with a new perspective on our lives as a whole. Learning to be truthful about ALL our decisions, personally as well as professionally, while difficult at first, has ultimately meant we are on a path of greater awareness and insight. This clarity about life and business offers a genuine sense of peace and serenity, a tough find in today’s world! And finally, this would not have been possible without Larry’s patience, support and nurturance throughout the process. It has made all the difference. Thank you, Larry!
