The 7 Principles of The Ripple Effect

  2. You have extraordinary potential that will never be reached by living an ordinary life
  3. There is a thin line between mediocrity and greatness
  4. Embrace the struggle
  5. One simple choice can change the course of your life

  7. Integrity matters

The Four Levels of Integrity

Explores how specifically to live a life of integrity both personally and professionally. 

  • Level One: The Carrot and the Stick. Integrity happens primarily through an external structure which has been set up to encourage desired behavior and discourage unwanted behavior.
  • Level Two: Do it Anyway. Integrity happens independently of feelings and external circumstances.
  • Level Three: Lifestyle. Integrity is a natural, pleasant self-expression of being or becoming.
  • Level Four: Throw Your Hat in the Ring: the act of making an external, time-bounded commitment of what you intend to take on or accomplish. Internal and external drives combine seamlessly in a life of integrity.

I want to thank you for the exceptional presentation you made at our annual meeting. I think having you there was one of the main attractions and your session in particular drew rave reviews. You ability to use your own life experiences to illustrate the highs and lows of sales really connected with our group. You shared personal struggles that many people pretend never happened. It made you "real" to the audience, and created a situation where they listened deeper to your presentation. You were last on the schedule, and no one left early. That's unheard of in our community!
