Program: The Wednesday Word ACTION IDEAS:
Have you ever heard the phrase “get with the program”? And since a program is a series of coded software instructions to control the operation of a computer or other machine, allow me to ask, what programs are you operating with?
What programs are running your body, mind and spirit? Is the sugar program running your body? Is the mainstream media programming your mind? Your spirit, is it run on the love program or are you in the fear program?
GOOD NEWS: You can delete old and corrupted files, you can rewrite current programming and you can remove the viruses. You can reprogram your body, mind and spirit.
MANAGERS, LEADERS and BUSINESS OWNERS: What programs is your company running off of? I’m going to defer to my friend Trevor Moawad, mental conditioning expert and author of It Takes What It Takes as a final reference and definition of the word “program’.
The ability to influence the behavior of others through leadership moves a team from being a collection of players to becoming an established program.
A PROGRAM… is a collection of behaviors that translates forward. This happens through a well-developed process, continuing education and a clear set of choices that the coaches and players know are required regardless of [who those players are]”
And this is something you need in order to scale your business…
