2-Steps to Living a 10X Leadership Life Personally & Professionally - Jana Uselton
I love the concept of 10X Leadership. More importantly, I love the concept lived out and demonstrated through others. It’s easy to recognize someone who is living a 10X life with 10X thinking. It permeates everything they do. Before we assess if we are living at this level and demonstrating it through leadership, let’s review the definitions. The concept of 10X was derived from Grant Cardone and in his book The 10X Rule. This powerful book should be on your annual read list not once, but twice. The focus of the 10X principle is “You must set targets that are 10 times what you think you want and then do 10 times what you think it will take to accomplish those targets. Massive thoughts must be followed by massive actions.” Someone living a 10X life is assertive, determined, and disciplined in almost everything they do. They demonstrate a life of thinking bigger and achieving more than the average with relentless focus, meaningful relationships, and exponential goals. As you know, HSRA/MBA has aligned with the 10X concept in 2020 and it’s helping others see what a difference the 10X mindset makes. But, leadership is the key. There’s none better than John Maxwell when it comes to leadership. The principles he pours into his books and programs are second to none. He leads by example and brings others on the journey with him. His take on a 360 Leader derives from learning to lead yourself first then helping lead and develop others. This includes discipline and determination in our own lives that impact others. I’ve personally been under the leadership of John Maxwell for over 25 years in other organizations. These leadership principles we integrate into our businesses and personal lives set us apart and attract other leaders. Let’s talk about the concept of 10X Leadership. When you put these two words together, it’s like dynamite. There is synergy. It’s magic. Becoming a 10X leader does not happen overnight or by default. We build these key concepts into our lives and others notice. The discipline must be daily, the accountability must be continuous, and the driver must not stop.
