I believe that this could be a great exercise for someone to figure out where they are spending the most time in their life.

If someone was a teenager and hadn’t grown since they were 10yrs old, there could be a chance for alarm. It’s so easy to see issues of growth physically but most people aren’t looking for growth internally. Learning is an area in someones life that they don’t have limitations. I know that if I wanted to get ripped physically I would eventually plateau. Each of us has a DNA that limits us to certain potential levels physically. On the contrary, you can be a life long learner. The problem that most people, me included at a point, encounter is useless learning.
I hope that you have a way to measure your growth and a mentor to keep stretching your thinking. A mentor is someone that is much better than you at the thing you are trying to get better at. Many times you shouldn’t even understand the level of thinking the mentor is expressing, because they are talking from a whole different vantage point. Everyone that achieves greatness refers back to someone who really stretched them at one point. The worst part of that is they know that it took someone to help them get to that level of success and sometimes they won’t reach for the next mentor. For example, John Wooden always talks about his father who set the bar very high in his life. John Wooden became a historical icon.
In Hebrews 5:12- It sums it up.
12For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat. 13[For every one that useth milk ] is[ unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe.] 14[But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, ] even[ those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.
I take this as, over time we should become more proficient at what we are doing. I remember hearing Orrin Woodward say that many people have one year of experience thirty times, instead of thirty years of experience. I want to encourage you to dig into your own growth and gain some ground. Find someone to stretch you and help you achieve what you want to.
Here’s to your growth,

Why did I pick this title? Because when you decide to start learning from others that have more results in certain areas than you do, you put yourself in a position to feel uncomfortable about needing to change. Over the years I think the word CHANGE is the killer of what could have been in many peoples lives. I, like many, don’t like change that much either. Change is the factor that can make everything different in someones life.
For example, if you read a: marriage, leadership, faith, or people skills book, you will hit some point in the book where it will (or should) make you look internally and say “man I’m not very good at that.” That is a very hard comment to say, we all want to think we are great at everything.
For me personally, I have had to change a bunch, and still need to change more in my life. The thing about change is that when you get better and look back at the old you, your glad you got better.
In the book Resolved, by Orrin Woodward, he has many great chapters in the book that I like. The chapter that I wanted to talk about in this post, chapter 4, Programing Elephant. Over the years I have been intimidated many times by people that dressed nice and smelled nice, but had stinking thinking. By reading this chapter you will find that he says “By identifying what a person is feeding his elephant, one can accurately predict his future.” That’s a powerful statement. Most people let others feed their elephant and end up where someone else wanted them to. I say, take the responsibility of feeding your subconscious (elephant) and end up in life where you wanted to.
Leave a comment of the most impactful book you have read. I would love to hear the titles.
I heard Orrin Woodward say “its not about being perfect, its about striving for perfection that leads to greatness.”
Here’s to Learning- Cheers

Orrin of the-team.biz has come up with another great illustration to describe the 8F growth process. I have seen a simliar diagram used to visually show improvement in a persons golf game. These kind of diagram are great because they give an immediate feedback on how you are doing. bill lewis
Chris Brady and I flew up to Atlanta for a 6 hour mastermind session on Tuesday. Here is one of many concepts that were generated from brainstorming together. Generating ideas with Chris Brady is like drinking water from a firehose – fast and furious! I love our 17 year business partnership! LIFE is something special and I have never felt as good about community building as I do today. Laurie and I started a new leg 10 days ago and it is now over 10 levels in depth! The LIFE Business is good because it helps people become good in their Circle of LIFE. Here is Brady’s article explaining what our products do in a person’s life. Sincerely, Orrin Woodward
I had a very engaging conversation with my friend and co-author Orrin Woodward today. As usual, we kicked around a ton of stimulating ideas and pieced together something that, in our estimation, will immediately convey greater understanding as to the purpose of the LIFE business. (See the inset diagram).
In each of the 8 F categories of Faith, Family, Finances, Fitness, Following, Freedom, Friendship, and Fun, one can imagine a certain grade based upon how one is doing in that category. In the diagram the center represents horrible, as in, you are totally “stinking up the joint” (as my kids say) in a certain category. Working your way out from the center to the outer ring in any of the categories represents a stronger grade. So someone with a dot near the outer ring is doing well in that category. By connecting the dots on your subjective personal estimation of your life at this moment in each of the categories you can come up with a shape that roughly represents your life right now in each of the 8Fs.
Quite simply, the LIFE business supplies life-changing information to help you increase your score in each of the 8Fs. The goal is to take someone from the not-so-good black shape represented toward the center of the diagram to the much improved (and happier, we would think) life represented by the red outline toward the outer ring of the circle.
Who doesn’t have at least a category or two, or three, or eight, in which he or she would like to have a better score? Who wouldn’t want to transform his or her life from the tiny blob (and who among us hasn’t felt like a tiny blob from time to time?) in the center to the big wheel (and who hasn’t wanted to be a big wheel at least once in his or her life?) toward the outer ring?
That’s it. From little blob to big wheel.
But all kidding aside. This CIRCLE of LIFE is the snap-shot diagram to which people can easily relate when it comes to understand the goal of LIFE and the life-changing information we offer. We will help people learn and apply truth in each category and thereby improve their shape.
LIFE: Because leadership is for everyone!
I love this wheel. My LIFE wheel used to have flat spots on it, big one’s.-Steve Morgan

Why is it that the greatest leaders of all-time seem to either have rabid fans or rabid critics? The answer is simple: truth polarizes. When a leader leads with his convictions, others, who do not hold the same convictions, will criticize the endeavor. Throughout history, men and women like Mother Theresa, Martin Luther, Sam Walton, Oliver Cromwell, George Washington, and Abraham Lincoln, to name a few, have received mountaintop praise and sewer-based criticisms. In fact, if a person desires to change the world, then he better build a tough skin while maintaining a soft heart, because he will be criticized!-Orrin Woodward
I have seen this in my own LIFE. As I went out and started my business there were many that criticized what I was doing. I could never understand why someone would criticize a person for trying to do better and trying to get ahead. Then one day I was at a Team leadership seminar and I heard the answer. The speaker said that its like watching a dog that is chasing a rabbit. The dog is running over plants, through bushes, doing everything he can to try and catch the rabbit. If the people who were watching the dog couldn’t see the rabbit they would think the dog was crazy. This is how some of my critics saw me.
People don’t understand how important Conflict resolution is in LIFE. Please read up on this, the world needs it.- Steve Morgan

I have the pleasure of working with 2 of the most amazing leaders in the world named Chris Brady and Orrin Woodward. Their thinking has changed my LIFE forever. I never thought I would be working directly with the #7 & #12 Leadership Guru’s in the world.
I would like to tell you a story that I heard in my journeys with this amazing group known as LIFE. The story goes like this:
A little boy was sitting at breakfast one morning and his father was making him some egg’s, toast, bacon and orange juice. The smell filled the whole house and he was so eagerly waiting for the plate to be sat down in front of him. His stomach was hungry and his favorite food was bacon.
As his father brought the plate to the table with the hot food on it, he said “have I told you about bacon & eggs yet?”
The boy said ” I have no idea what you are talking about.”
The father said “There is a big difference in what it took for the bacon and eggs to hit this plate.”
The boy responds hungrily ” yes they are from different animals”
Passionately the father pulls the plate back and says ” The chicken only had a good interest in this breakfast but the pig was committed son, that’s the kind of commitment it takes to win in LIFE. The all in type.”
I know it’s a fun little story, but have you witnessed someone trying to win at something with just a good-interest effort? I have, and it’s kind of sad, because it only takes a little more effort and more consistency to be great.
I hope that this story will help you in your journey of LIFE, to be the committed winner that it takes to do something great.
I remember being scared to be committed, it was much easier for me to back out of things when I just had a good interest. I had always liked having a way out.
Parting thought: “Be the Bacon.”
Like Orrin Woodward and Chris Brady always say ,”Dream Big”
