Frankly, “Leveling Up” received my 5 STARS Review as soon as I had finished reading the “Table of Contents.” I instantly said – “Wow – I am adding all 12 of Ryan’s Questions to my “Collection of Great Questions!”
Here is the “Table of Contents”( i.e. Ryan’s 12 Questions) for your review:
THE VISION QUESTION
Success is liking yourself, liking what you do, and liking how you do it. —Maya Angelou
THE SELF-AWARENESS QUESTION
To know yourself, you must sacrifice the illusion that you already do. —Vironika Tugaleva
THE SELF-IMPROVEMENT QUESTION
If you don’t make the time to work on creating the life you want, you’re eventually going to be forced to spend a lot of time dealing with a life you don’t want. —Kevin Ngo
THE TEAM PLAYER QUESTION
Be generous with your time and your resources and with giving credit and, especially, with your words. It’s so much easier to be a critic than a celebrator. —Maria Popova
THE HUMILITY QUESTION
Is it too late now to say sorry? —Justin Bieber
THE POTENTIAL QUESTION
Success is stumbling from failure to failure with no loss of enthusiasm. —Winston Churchill
THE ASSIST QUESTION
You can have everything you want in life if you just help enough people. —Zig Ziglar
THE INTEGRITY QUESTION
It takes twenty years to build a reputation and five minutes to ruin it. If you think about that, you’ll do things differently. —Warren Buffett
THE SCHEDULE QUESTION
The key is in not spending time, but in investing it. How will you invest your time this year? —Stephen R. Covey
THE REST QUESTION
I wanted to figure out why I was so busy, but I couldn’t find the time to do it. —Todd Stocker
THE FUN QUESTION
Don’t take life too seriously! Nobody gets out alive anyway. Smile. Be goofy. Take chances. Have fun. Inspire. —Dawn Gluskin
THE TRANSPARENCY QUESTION
The older I become the more I dream of a world where I don’t need so much armor. —J. M. Storm
Of course Ryan shares incredible stories and wisdom in every chapter!
You have heard that “Inspiration without Application leads to Frustration” but “Inspiration with Application leads to Transformation.”
I have asked myself this same question! Here is my answer:
First, before I ask these questions of others, I need to begin by asking these questions of myself! And I have decided to not move too quickly. I am not going to answer all 12 questions in one sitting! Instead, my plan is to ask only 1 of 12 questions per week – giving myself time to re-read the associated chapter and journal my answer. And then to share my answer’s with my wife, a couple of trusted friends and one of my Cru colleagues – asking them what they might suggest for me to add?
Second – I will be sharing Ryan’s book and 12 questions with the leaders I am coaching. And I will suggest for them to take the time to re-read the corresponding chapter and write out their answers. And of course I will offer to interact with them over their answers.
