Daily Choice is the “Real” Vote
Let’s not talk about politics, but let’s talk about your vote. You have a right to vote and your vote counts each and every day. Your choice is a vote and our collective vote determines the success and failure of businesses and initiatives alike. We collectively determine our future with the power of our vote.
We vote what foods will be marketed more effectively and our vote will determine which car company will thrive. For example, we are bombarded with McDonald’s commercials because we choose to spend our money at McDonald’s. You might be saying, “What came first, the chicken or the egg”? Well in this case, we are the chicken and we are giving permission to reproduce the egg. McDonald’s would not be able to afford advertisements without our vote of confidence. Our vote fuels our economy and if we choose to eat healthy then McDonald’s responds with a healthy menu.
We dictate what happens by way of our daily choice.
A choice to not choose is still a choice. This allows others to choose for you because you are considered a silent and permissive observer that will abide by any choice given to you. That is a choice that many choose (and not exactly the wrong choice depending on personal values).
Collectively we have chosen to allow big business to dictate and have allowed our debt to increase exponentially. We want to blame others for our problems but blame usually increases the problem instead of providing a solution.
We can only resolve the issue when we accept responsibility and commit to positive change. Our choice as citizens is our power to contribute to making our world a better place to live. Our choice is our voice about what we value and what we love to do. Our choice says everything about us and this is the basis for the saying, “Actions speak louder than words”.
We all need to take a longer look in our mirror and gain a better understanding of the reality we have chosen. We need to be brutally honest in order to form a solid foundation, and start, or continue to make the right choices because this is our message to the world about whom we are and where we are headed tomorrow by way of this moment’s vote.

Leadership coaching is dedicated to enhancing leadership skills and abilities by enhancing the leader within and creating self-awareness. Targeting and understanding the underlying processes that dictate predictable behaviors creates a necessary awareness in alignment with reality that enables superior leadership. All leadership is not equal, but rather, fluid, flexible, and adaptive to the situation and environment. Implementing the correct developmental process proactively separates the good from the great. Our leadership coaching processes develops great leaders. However, facing perceived fears, accepting critical feedback, and managing emotional highs & lows in alignment with universal laws is required for maximizing personal and professional growth.
Everyone is capable of being a leader and that leadership begins with leading the self. The material offered goes above and beyond generic leadership content found on other leadership sites such as mission, vision, and tactics of leadership. Rather, we expand on these processes and include the real human aspect and psychological foundation of creating valued connections that by association inspire followers to exceed performance expectations. Additionally, these writings are geared to elicit behaviors that make leaders more follower-friendly, and attempt by diffusion, to refine the skills needed to lead successfully.
