Will You Join My Community?
I recently enjoyed a few days of rest with Margaret, my wife. We were able to spend time together doing the things that we love, right in the middle of the busy summer season. Now that COVID restrictions are changing, in-person events are coming back, which means my calendar is filling up again with incredible…Read More
Seven Decades of Lessons (and A Gift)
This Saturday, I will turn 74 years old. Like most birthdays when you get older, I’ll celebrate in some way with my family and friends, but for the most part I’ll treat it like most other days: focused on the mission of transformation. But that doesn’t mean I won’t reflect on my life and what…Read More
The Movement is Moving–Are You With Us?

One More Chance to Join the Movement
Today is a historic day for the United States of America; for the 59th time in our country’s history, we inaugurated a new president and vice-president, and began another chapter in our leadership history.

The Value of a Mile

It’s part of our Transformathon—which ends later this month with an amazing 5K walk that I’ll be live-streaming from two different locations—but it’s also part of my health routine. When Covid hit last year and my travel schedule suddenly opened up, it didn’t take me…Read More

If I told you that the fate of the world rested on your shoulders, how would you respond? Would you take an action hero approach and confidently declare that you will handle it? Would you shrink from the responsibility and pass it on to someone else? Or would you simply shake your head, look me…Read More
Mark Cole: Change Is Necessary
Remember the Peanuts cartoon with Snoopy, Charlie Brown and all his friends? American cartoonist Charles M.

Mark Cole: Can We Change the World?
Is it really possible for us to change the world? What a big question! Have you ever thought about it? John Maxwell and I are on a worldwide trip for the next few weeks with eight different stops, literally all over the globe, adding value to leaders who influence hundreds of thousands of people. As…Read More
What Does it Feel Like to See a Dream Come True?
Now, that’s not a question for everyone because not everyone has a dream. That’s not intended to be a slight or a negative statement; but it is a reality that I learned the hard way. You see, about 10 years ago I wrote a book called, Put Your Dream to the Test, and after it…Read More
The Power of a Winning Attitude
One of the four key areas I’m constantly trying to grow in myself is my attitude. I know from first-hand experience that a good attitude is essential for success, because so much of how we view the world is rooted in the attitude we choose. Normally I use a blog post to offer you teaching…Read More
