An Active Shooter, Your Best Year Ever, and More Christmas Goodies!

Merry Christmas everyone!

My blog usually comes out on Tuesdays. The next two Tuesdays are Christmas Day and New Year’s Day, so the next time you will receive a LeaderTribe blog it will be 2019! I plan to be home over the holidays, so feel free to write me at if I can serve you in any way.


1.  Can you imagine being in a shopping mall with an active shooter killing people? I was in one this past week—almost. As my wife and I were walking in an unfamiliar mall in Florida, suddenly the alarms went off and hundreds of screaming people were running at us yelling about a shooter. Today my Daily Dose of Growth Podcast is titled “3 Things I Learned About Myself in an Active Shooter Situation.” Spoiler alert: There was no active shooter! It was an alarm pull and people thought there was a shooter that put thousands of other into a panic, hurt people, etc. But we didn’t know that at the time, so I was able to see what I would do, and not do, and what I need to learn from it.

2. Financial advice from an NFL player? I think I’ll pass. But these 3 minutes of financial advice from a New York Jets linebacker is golden. He made it for younger NFL players, but it is 100% worth listening to—for all of us!

3. Today and tomorrow are the final two days to purchase Michael Hyatt’s 5 Days to Your Best Year Ever! I personally purchase this program every year! And so do legit internet titans like John Lee Dumas, Pat Flynn, Jeff Walker, Amy Porterfield, Ray Edwards, and a ton of others. Why? Because it works. I’ve accomplished more with this easy program than any other program I have ever invested in. Yep, it’s that good.

4. Jim Collins, who wrote the bestseller Good to Great, wrote these words, “Good is the Enemy of Great.” He’s right—but I added a couple of words: “Being Content with Good… is the Enemy of Great.” Ask yourself, “What is one area where I’m good at, but I’d like to be GREAT at by the end of 2019? I have a Christmas Present for you! Click here to get a free 10-page executive summary of the book Good to Great.

Finally, my best gift of the year! When I had the privilege of working with John Maxwell at his EQUIP organization, we filmed a series of videos entitled The Essentials of Success. The final video in that series is a 10-minute video John entitled, Bonus Lesson—My Most Important Relationship. I recently discovered that all the videos are now available for free on the internet. In this video, John does one of the best presentations ever on how to have the right kind of relationship with God. You will love this video for yourself and to share with others, just click the link above and scroll down to the final video. Merry Christmas everyone!
