HOW TO BECOME AN INDUSTRY THOUGHT LEADER: THE FIVE THINGS YOU NEED TO SET YOURSELF UP FOR ULTIMATE SUCCESS
Most kids now of days don’t want to grow up to be doctors or lawyers, policemen or firefighters, politicians or MLB players.
Most kids want to be their version of Steve Jobs, Tony Robbins, or Mark Zuckerberg. Most kids (and a ton of adults) want to be industry thought leaders.
Where decades past, tangible creation was the key to success. Now more than ever, thoughts, ideas, a new perspective that works is what brings about greatness and change.
With everyone vying for such a limited spot, how can you make yourself an industry thought leader?
Well, the truth is in the end you can’t.
Just like with a popularity contest, you can’t make yourself popular. BUT, you can give yourself outstanding odds for success to happen.
The 5 undeniable things you need to be an industry thought leader.
SoulFire™ Story. You must have a passion and connection to what you do like no other.
2. Personal Brand. Evolution will occur in your brand, the foundation of who you are and what drives you is always strong.
3. Drive. You must have a drive and determination that is “Do it or Die.”
4. Perspective. Besides living, breathing, and eating your love affair with your industry, you must have a unique point of view that defies current thinking.
5. Time. It would be nice for world domination, oh I mean industry thought leader status, to come instantly, but it doesn’t. Sometimes it takes decades. It always takes years. Which means you truly have to have points 1-4 solid or you will be viewed as an instant phony.
Thought leaders have the ability to shape our society in ways that few have ever done before. Therefore such a title does not come lightly or quickly. But if your heart is truly one of radical positive change, it will happen. Just keep on keepin’ on.
