Day 15- “Just Do It” The Law Of Victory (John C. Maxwell)

The Law of Victory – Leaders Find a Way for the Team to Win

Victorious leaders have one thing in common: they share an unwillingness to accept defeat. although that does not mean they will never fail, only that they will never stop trying!

The alternative to winning is totally unacceptable to them. As a result, they figure out what must be done to achieve victory.

ƒThe best leaders feel compelled to rise to a challenge and do everything in their power to achieve victory for their people. In their view…

o Losing is unacceptable.

o Passion is unquenchable. this is my favorite!

o Quitting is unthinkable. 

When it comes to the idea of quitting, I always remember what my father has told me is the definition of insanity~  “doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results”~  I say- quit doing what isn’t working and keep going! but please, quit the modes of execution that have proven to fail, over and over and over again!

o Commitment is unquestionable.

o Victory is inevitable.

ƒ With that mindset, they embrace the vision and approach the challenges
with the resolve to take their people to victory.
ƒ Three factors that contribute to a team’s dedication to victory:

1) Unity of Vision – Teams succeed only when the players have a
unified vision, no matter how much talent or potential there is.

having a unified vision is KEY, if your team isn’t buying into what you’re doing, why would anyone else!? Or a greater concern is, it the possibility for your vision to thrive.

2) Diversity of Skills – Every organization requires diverse talents to
succeed.

Every position has a purpose to fulfill, and a type of person who can do it well!  “treat your colleagues like you do your pictures and place them in their best light”, and best suited position.  

3) A Leader Dedicated to Victory and Raising Players to Their
Potential – Unity of vision doesn’t happen spontaneously. The
right players with the proper diversity of talent don’t come together
on their own. It takes a leader to make those things happen. It
takes a leader to provide the motivation, empowerment, and
direction required to win
