John Baldoni | The Legacy Project

John Baldoni Definition Of Success | Success is having the freedom to do what you want, when you want. That means I can pursue the interests dearest to me – work, family, friends, hobbies.

I Am Driven By | I have a desire like many to make a positive difference in the lives of others. I try to do it in my work as a coach, teacher and author.

My Highlights | I am most proud of the fact that my books have been translated into multiple languages, right now ten and counting. This means that people in different cultures find what I have to teach interesting… so interesting they want to read my words in their own languages.

The Difference Between Good And Great | Talent and commitment. We all have talent. How committed are we to pursue our talents in the face of setbacks. Also do we have the commitment to do things better even if they are good. That is the difference between performers and great performers. The performer does the work; the great performer teaches us to remember the work.

Dealing With Doubt | Self-doubt should not be feared. Embrace the doubt. Why? It will help you make better decisions. It will challenge you to re-think your assumptions. Doubt is our friend; put it to work for you.

The Best Advice I’ve Received | My father believed in hard work and persistence. He taught me those at a young age and I have tried to follow his great example.

I Am Inspired By | Nelson Mandela, of course. How could one man have the strength to put aside the bitterness he felt toward people who had done him wrong for so long? His commitment to nationhood and peace is an example to us all.

The Legacy I Would Like To Leave | Don’t think of legacy as something you leave. It is your investment in the future that lives on. Each of us creates a legacy everyday. We do good; we make mistakes. Ideally in your legacy the positives will outweigh the negatives.
