I was just sent a link to a powerful video that shows – once again – how leaders change reality and shape perceptions – their own and others. The four-minute clip shows Nick Vujicic fully engaged in sporting activities and speaking to young people about perspective.

Nick was born with no arms and legs. But he’s grateful for “his little chicken drumstick” in place of his left leg. Go to No Arms, No Legs, No Worries! to watch his very inspiring and moving video.

You can find a number of short articles on Attitude and Outlook on our web site. Here’s a few that align with Nick’s philosophies:

Breaking Out of Our Mental Prisons
Self-imposed mental wheelchairs hold so many people back from being highly effective leaders. Change what happens in our head, and the universe changes. More

Choice More than Chance Determines Our Circumstance
Dwelling on our problems rather than our possibilities comes all too naturally. Too often we choose to curse the darkness rather than light a candle. More

Stop Whining and Start Leading
Less effective managers aspire to lead but end up demoralizing their own teams and frustrating themselves by choosing to be disempowered by their bosses. They unwittingly fall for the cult of heroic management — the notion that leadership comes down from on high. More

A core focus of my latest book, Growing @ the Speed of Change, is on perspective and how our outlook and beliefs (our explanatory style) shapes reality. You can peruse a few of my past blog posts on this that draw from the book at Category Archives: Attitude and Outlook. You can also watch my Thriving in Turbulent Times archived webcast for a deeper look at the fundamental core principles key to successfully leading ourselves and others.
