Summary: A key stumbling block to leadership success is very mind-set of leaders. Those leaders who don't believe that results are limitless are selling their jobs and careers short. Here is a four-step process for manifesting a "results are limitless" mind-set.
In Leadership, Results Are Limitless by Brent Filson
Results are limitless. That's not a supposition. That's a fact. Leaders who don't believe that don't understand power of leadership to achieve great results. Leaders who believe it and live by their belief have an unmatched advantage over those leaders who don't.
To begin to understand how and why results-are-results are limitless, consider these facts: * In 1878, Jean Bouillaud, member of French Academy of Sciences, said upon hearing a demonstration of Thomas Edison's phonograph, "It is quite impossible that noble organs of human speech could be replaced ignoble, senseless metal."
* In 1899, Charles H. Duell (Commissioner of U.S. Office of Patents.), urging President William McKinley to abolish his office, said,"Everything that can be invented has been invented."
* An 1909 article in Scientific American stated, "The automobile has practically reached limit of its development is suggested by fact that during past year no improvements of a radical nature have been introduced."
* Popular Mechanics stated in March 1949: "Where a calculator on ENIAC is equipped with 18,000 vacuum tubes and weighs 30 tons, computers in future may have only 1,000 vacuum tubes and perhaps only weight 11/2 tons."
The point isn't that experts are wrong. Experts, we know, have been wrong countless times. The point isn't that things change. That's obvious. The point is this: BECAUSE THINGS CHANGE, RESULTS ARE LIMITLESS. IN OTHER WORDS, WHATEVER RESULTS YOU ARE ACHIEVING, YOU CAN ALWAYS ACHIEVE MORE.
