Have you ever wondered if you were meant for greater things?

Have you ever felt that if you could just experience that one personal breakthrough then everything would fall into place?

Have you ever stopped to wonder, ‘what if?’ and then caught yourself feeling paralyzed by your own reality?

It happens to all of us however at Step Into Your Power we believe that every person has greatness within them and that they are capable of making a bigger impact in the world. We believe that the life you dream is yours to claim and that through coaching, training and mentoring you can be, do and have everything you dream.

When I ask for a show of hands, in any audience, how many people want to write a book, almost everyone’s hand goes up.  I know that less than 10% of these people will ever actually sit down and start writing a book and less than 10% of that 10% will ever actually complete a book, and even a smaller percentage of these people will ever publish a book.

John David Mann has not only written the international best seller, The Go Giver, with Bob Burg, he has helped write many personal development favorites including The Answer with John Assaraf.

Growing up, John wanted to be a concert cellist and then a screen writer.  His friends would often ask him to edit their writing and he found that he had a gift for helping people bring a higher caliber of writing to the forefront.

Deciding to pursue his dreams, he didn’t even finish high school, or go to college.  Instead, he focused his full-time efforts on writing and has had tremendous success including winning several awards.

When I asked John about his writing process, he explained that each book is like a symphony.  There is a start, there is an end, and his goal is to help bring out the music in between.  He also said that in screen writing school, all movies essentially follow the same formula and he has brought this to books.

There is a main character.  The main character then faces a challenge and against seemingly ridiculous odds, triumphs.  If you have read the Go Giver, and now the newest book in the series, The Go Giver Influencer, you will see Mann’s proclivity for bringing an award-winning movie landscape into his books.

One of the central themes of John’s success is that he consistently focuses on his intention in any communication whether it is writing, email, or social media.  He counsels that if we have pure intent, that will come through regardless of form.  Sage words indeed.

Okay – you have a finance degree, you work hard, you go to the NFL, and while playing are disciplined enough to continue to take classes at USC so you can further your education.  You start to build a massively successful company and thanks to a tough lesson, lose $2 million in 90 days.  Beyond motivation comes grit.  Leadership expert, speaker, and best-selling author, Marques Ogden, is Susan’s guest on this episode.

In life, and business, we all want the same thing – progress.  In our pursuit of progress, we can often focus on several things that do not work.  Best-selling author of The Go Giver, Bob Burg, shares how we can amplify success in all areas of our lives by adding value.  You will absolutely love this episode and walk away with tangible strategies that you can implement right now.
