Onward to a Million!

Anyone who has spent any time around or listening to LIFE founder and leadership guru Orrin Woodward knows that he’s had a decade-long (or longer) vision of positively changing a million lives. Given the resources Orrin had when he first birthed the dream, I’m sure most people wrote him off as crazy or delusional. Now, with the massively successful growth of the newly formed LIFE business and the launch of their flagship product, The Mental Fitness Challenge, it’s not a question of whether or not he’s going to do it, but when. According to Orrin, it’s very soon.

And it really is going to change the world. Why?

1. The Mental Fitness Challenge: 90 Days to Change Your Life

The product is finally here. The result of decades upon decades of leadership training developed through the blood, sweat, and tears of LIFE’s founders, it’s a 13-week program based on Orrin Woodward’s RESOLVED: 13 Resolutions for LIFE, and I couldn’t be more excited to embark on the journey. From LIFE founder Chris Brady, it includes “three best-selling books, a bunch of CDs, an online environment for tracking progress, a video library which accumulates for future viewing as videos stream in through email on a regular basis, a self-assessment test, unlimited 360 feedback, accountability partners, goal and tracking sheets, and more!”

For anyone who has ever wanted a guided program to achieve the results in life you’ve always wanted, this is for you. As Ben Franklin said, “An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest.”

2. The Law of the Vital Few

History has proven that significant change always begins first with a handful of individuals. As author Oliver DeMille writes in his book FreedomShift, this is a principle referred to as “The Law of the Vital Few.”

“History calls it ‘The Law of the Vital Few’; in math it is reflected in Factor Sparcity. In economics, the idea that small things guide the big things is often referred to as the 80-20 Rule or Pareto’s Law. The concept asserts 20% of our actions create 80% of the results and 20% of the people have 80% of the impact…in the history of human greatness…the 97-3 Rule prevails.” (Emphasis added by me.)

Got that? Three percent. Three percent of the population is responsible for the direction of the entire people. In the United States of America, three percent rounds off to a very interesting number: 1 million.

Onward to a Million!

Imagine one million people embracing The Mental Fitness Challenge to change their lives for the better. One million people learning, reading, listening, discussing, waking up to problems facing this country and stepping up to help make a difference. I write all the time about the importance of leadership. Seven years ago, Orrin Woodward and Chris Brady wrote about Launching a Leadership Revolution. Having just come home from a LIFE leadership conference that had 15,000+ people in attendance, it’s clear that revolution is well on it’s way. So let’s join the call: Onward to a million!

    3 percent equals 1 million. That is the best explanation of our cause I have seen! Great post.
