Mike Adams Profile System Why MAPS
Wisdom from Mark Twain “Mark Twain told a wonderful story about one man’s search for the world’s greatest general. The man spent an entire lifetime looking for the general and finally the day came for him to travel on. When he arrived in heaven he walked over to St. Peter and said, ‘I’m looking for the world’s greatest general.’” “St. Peter said, ‘I know, I know, we’ve been expecting you, and I have good news. If you’ll look right over there, you will see the world’s greatest general.’” “The old man excitedly looked over and said, ‘That is not the world’s greatest general. That man was a cobbler on Main Street in my hometown!’” “St. Peter responded, “But had he been a general, he would have been the greatest general ever.”
Our True Genius • Most of Us in This Room Will Take Our True Genius to the Grave with Us
A Person Can Perform Only From Strength Most people think they know what they are good at. They are usually wrong. More often, people know what they are not good at—and even then more people are wrong than right. And yet, a person can perform only from strength. One cannot build performance on weaknesses, let alone on something one cannot do at all. - Business Guru Peter F. Drucker (1909 - 2005)
Potential Most of the people that work for you, and that you hire, are not providing you with the potential value they have to offer
Living on Purpose • Ignoring our design puts us on a path of reactionary living. • Tell your life what to do or the world around you will dictate it. • If we understand how we are designed, our design will give us insight as to what that purpose is!
Living Purpose is Now a Choice Today you will make a choice to pursue your designed purpose, or risk taking your true Genius to the grave with you. I choose to live my design; to live my purpose; to live my life in a way that I may live it more abundantly.
Purpose • Living my purpose allows me to live with purpose, without regret, without apprehension.
