The Gift of Sight

Your “Belief Window” is how you perceive and understand everything in your life: the way you see the world, your role in it and the relationships you have with others. It frames all your views and influences the actions you take, but it can also be wrong or limited.

I see two ways to solve these blind spots in your “Belief Window”—engage a coach or mentor, and purposefully grow your knowledge of a subject. As a strategist, I need to keep learning every day, so I meet with my coach on a regular basis to talk about life and growth. It really is valuable to get the insights of another person, who may see things from a different angle.

I have authored almost 40 books over the past two decades, so the publishing business is really a part of me. I want to know everything about how books are produced and distributed, and I find it is especially interesting to talk to the printer about innovations in the industry. The more I know about printing nuances and options, the better the decisions that I can make when I'm producing a new publication.

Take a good look at your “Belief Window” and do some refinement. Once you clean up those blind spots, you’ll expand your mind, see so much farther, and your results will exponentially increase.
