At LGCY Power, we believe in 6 Key Leadership Principles. Abiding by these principles will truly help us become better leaders and better people; can in fact, help us become the best version of ourselves.
The first Leadership Principle we stand for is to Play Full Out. What does this mean? Webster’s online dictionary defines full-out as: “made or done with as much effort as possible.” That sums it up fairly well, but what does this mean for us? It could mean going a thousand miles an hour all the time, doing 52 things at once, never putting your phone down, answering 3 texts, 6 emails, and a voicemail simultaneously, eating energy bars and Red Bulls in the car between appointments, knocking just one more door, then one more, then another. It could mean all these things, and in a lot of ways, it does. This is what playing full out can look like.
It can be more than this. Not doing more, but meaning more. Playing Full Out means knowing what you want; what your goals are, what your essential purpose is, and being entirely committed to getting what you want. It means that if you don’t know this yet, you devote the time and energy you deserve to figuring it out.
Playing Full Out means being so focused on your goals – on your vision – that you don’t allow yourself to get pulled into things that are distracting, things that don’t matter, things that will pull you away from where you want to be.
Playing Full Out means that you are willing to do things that you don’t necessarily want to do, that you are scared to do, that you have never done before, and doing them anyway.
Playing Full Out means that you are willing to risk failure or embarrassment or whatever it takes to achieve your goals.
Playing Full Out means surrounding yourself with people who encourage your dreams and are willing to help you get them. It means removing from your life people who are draining, negative, or naysayers.
Playing Full Out means understanding that thoughts become words and words become actions, and keeping them positive, supportive, appreciative, and enthusiastic of others and of myself.
Playing Full Out means that you acknowledge your limits and will say no when you have to, so you don’t let others down.
Playing Full Out means that you play as hard as you work. It means allowing yourself time to relax and recharge. It means taking time to indulge in your hobbies, and enjoying your actual play time.
