Leadership Insights #9: Achieving Greatness Through Painting a Masterpiece and Embracing Pressure

Published 8 months ago • 4 min read

Hello Leaders,

We had the honor of hearing author and speaker, David Cook speak on Greatness last week in Dallas per a special invitation from ERISA Recovery.

The talk was titled, Selfless Exceptionalism. Cook captivated the room as he shared stories of peak performance athletes and how they handled high pressure situations when their lifelong goals were on the line – a pole vaulter who competed at the Olympic trials with 36 stitches(!!!), a pro-golfer who nailed the challenging hole to win the tournament, and an NCAA Volleyball coach who chose to speak belief over a key (but unpredictable) player during their championship game instead of pick the safer route with another player.

We were inspired by each of these stories of humans who rose to the occasion by embracing pressure to reach their goals, but who were also choosing sacrifice and “the other” over themselves. That is true greatness. Depth of character with the volition to win.

As I reflected on his speech (in addition to just admiring every aspect of his delivery!), I wanted to capture my own take-aways. Watch my video below or read my thoughts fully here.

So this week, and I am going to work on these two things, and I challenge all of you as well! I’m painting masterpieces like Picasso in my mind. I’m being good to myself. I’m believing in the goals that I’m setting out for myself. I’m not painting a tragedy. And secondly, I’m putting myself in pressure situations. So, have fun with that, and you, too, can achieve greatness.

Why do we work with high performers?

From Don Dalrymple: We only have so much time on this earth, and I always think about how to make the highest impact within the shortest amount of time. Erin and I, from our hearts and natural drive, constantly look to help others reach their potential.

Our styles are different. Erin nurtures, listens, cares for and encourages clients and friends to take life by the horns. I like to take in information, understand your goals, clarify any gaps and help with resources, connections and strategies to win.

While we have worked with many different people over the years both in life and business, in TruPotential Group, we decided to focus on helping high performers. We want to give our very best in each relationship we develop. We thoughtfully discussed and clarified our mission by examining what makes us happy, what really creates impact and what is a win for our clients and for us.

High performers tend to have certain qualities and strong character. They see value and desire to grow. These are clients who become not only great customers, but also employees, vendors and friends. Read our list of qualities we notice and resonate with...

A big shout-out to Nikola Jokić of the Denver Nuggets; this man absolutely fascinates me. There’s something about the way he behaves on and off the court that I deeply admire and respect. Watching him during interviews, I find myself completely engaged, absorbing every single word he says. Keep in mind, he speaks very few words, and that’s one of the things I respect so much about him as a player and a leader. I have become a basketball fan because of the Denver Nuggets. I admire how true...

I have not been out much over the last few weeks, other than to physical therapy appointments, but I am very grateful to live in such a beautiful place. Pictured above is an unfiltered sunset view from my bedroom which has become a sanctuary for healing, reading, and writing. I know that the renewed strength I desire for my knee and body in the future is contingent on my discipline and consistency today. PT and rest are vital. There are many days when I'm tempted to push ahead with activity...

*Enneagram Workshop in Frisco, CO with TPG facilitator, Tim Bender Have you ever been in a situation with someone you cared about and realized you had offended them without intending to? Like all of a sudden, you see them shut down emotionally? Or they lash out, and you're back-peddling in your mind trying to figure out what in the world you said or did to warrant such anger? We all get offended for different reasons. That is obvious. But what I didn't understand until I dove deeper into the...
