From my earliest memory, I always knew there was something different about me, that I was born to Lead. Polaris is a community full of like-minded leaders all looking for an advantage, which is an awesome place to hang around.
Ever heard the quote “Associate yourself with those you want to become”? Growing up I was a typical boy playing football and cricket. I never got good grades in school because I was so bored. In fact I remember my year 10 teacher suggesting dropping out of school and getting a job. Interestingly tho, from my earliest job I can remember that instead of socialising with people my age, I tended to foster very close relationships with my managers, role models if you will. The continual challenge for me is not playing by the set rules because if I didn’t agree with them, I’d just rebel.
What I have been learning with the Polaris Advantage is something very different again. For me it gives me permission to express my own feelings, be true to myself and learn and grow though my own mistakes. Having the ability to listen and mastermind with some incredible leaders is giving me the tools to really start understanding the difference now. There are always going to be rules to play by, but having the ability to now differentiate is powerful.
The aspiration I have for those who have achieved what I want and the ability to participate in a non-judgmental community for me is MASSIVE. There’s no tall poppy syndrome here, in fact Polaris offers the exact opposite – everybody is genuinely excited for you when you achieve. That in my opinion is TRUE leadership. Thank you Shane Krider for putting this together…
