In my last video, we discussed the first law in the Five Laws of Personal Constraints. If you haven’t watched it yet, click the link above to watch it now.

Here’s Law Two… You Can’t Rise Above Constraints That You Don’t or Won’t Address

There is an old story about how hunters catch monkeys in Africa. They hollow out a coconut, making sure the hole is just large enough for a monkey’s hand, then place a small orange or banana inside and chain the coconut to a tree. The scent attracts the monkey, who sticks his hand into the coconut, but soon discovers the hole is not big enough for him to remove both his hand and the prize. To get his hand out, he must drop what he’s holding. But he won’t. He is so intent on getting his treat that he will not even drop it to escape as the hunter easily captures him.

Do you see the picture?

Many of us are held captive by the constraints we continue to clutch tenaciously——because we can’t or won’t address them. Like the monkey, we are paralyzed and stuck between two worlds, not realizing we are choosing to be stuck at the expense of freedom.

The problems that you don’t deal with will keep you stuck and unable to grow in those areas. Overcoming our constraints is both possible and necessary if we desire to live life to its fullest. Coming to terms with this simple fact will help us let go of the old to embrace the new.

Think about this question: Do you have a plan to address your most critically impacting personal  constraint?

I ask this question to audiences all over the world, and everyone falls into one of these 4 groups when answering:

Group 1: They don’t know. Not good – If you don’t know it, then you aren’t working on it!

Group 2: They know…but they’re wrong. Not good – You’re going sideways, or backward!

Group 3: They know, they’re right … but they don’t have a plan. A lot of us are in this category!

The good news is that our process moves you and your people into a scarcely populated 4th group.

Group 4: They know, and they’re right…and they have a plan.

What would it be worth for you to know your #1 constraint and have a plan? What could it cost you if you don’t?

That’s why I want you to know about The Flippen Group’s Leadership Multiplier — a proven process that …

  • Will increase you and your teams’ peak performance level…
  • Creates an internal motivation that inspires your people to be more, do more and achieve more…
  • Builds stronger, higher-performing teams for dramatically improved bottom-line results

In fact, I’d like you to take Leadership Multiplier for a “test drive.”

It’s my way of introducing you to the program, investing in your personal improvement and helping your team.

It works like this: If you qualify, we will put you through the complete process without cost so that you can evaluate its effectiveness for yourself. You risk nothing more than an hour or so of your time.

In the end, if you like what you see, we can bring Leadership Multiplier to your entire team. If not, that’s okay too. You be the judge.

This unique process will…

  • Identify your personal strengths — and reveal how to develop them further for their own benefit and the benefit of your organization…
  • Uncover the behavioral constraints and counterproductive beliefs that are holding you and your team back from achieving peak performance — and show how to eliminate those constraints…
  • Provide a customized and measurable step-by-step action plan that will quickly drive you to a level of performance that will surprise you.

When all is said and done, you’ll be a stronger and more effective leader. Your teams will perform at higher, more productive levels than ever before. And your company will make faster progress toward its goals.

Hard to believe? Perhaps. But I’m not asking you to believe anything just yet until you see the evidence for yourself. All I ask is that you refrain from disbelieving until you put the Leadership Multiplier Test Drive through the paces on yourself.

Yes, it will take 60 minutes of your time, yet the rewards are enormous because this process is so powerful and effective.

I’ll get the ball rolling right away.

After all, in these hyper-competitive times, your organization needs every advantage it can get. And when you and your team are firing on all cylinders and working better together than ever before, you can’t help but get ahead.

And, as a bonus, I think you’ll be more fulfilled, enjoy your work more, and will have a renewed passion for your organization’s mission.
