Lesson 6 of 6
In Progress

A compelling reason why

If your why is not strong enough you will not come out of the “struggles and growth phase” of the Success Journey, instead of quitting and reverting back to what is easy. This is why completing the Burning Platform module in the organisational purpose and drivers course is so critical. Do not skip over it!


Every time things get challenging, come back to this and ask yourself where you are in the Journey of Success or hero’s arc? If you stop now, where will that leave you?

Progress, not perfection is the key to getting back on top.

Teddy Roosevelt’s “Man in the Arena” speech, delivered in 1910 is just as relevant today as it was back then. How can you apply this to your life?

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”

Theodore Roosevelt
