I Could Have Been Somebody, Instead of A Bum…

The classic ‘On the Waterfront,’. The character of Marlon Brando says You don’t understand! I coulda had class. I could have been a contender. I could have been somebody, instead of a bum, which is what I am.” because he had failed to become a successful boxer.

On the surface the movie is about an ex-prize fighter turned longshoreman struggles to stand up to his corrupt union bosses. On a deeper level, it is about something entirely different. In simple words that scene was the essence of the whole movie. It simply meant, “I am not living the life I expected”.

Listening to a wise person through social media may motivate us for a while but it does not last. Talks on mindfulness, goal setting, purpose, finding your why all sound great and many will apply these strategies. Truth be told, most will fail because there is a much deeper issue happening within. On the surface, you will say it relates to things such as wealth, health, relationships, career or business.

Make yourself aware of the deeper issue within. Admit that is the issue. Be truthful. That is a great step in raising your executive presence. What I know is people and organisations are facing three painful issues:

  • The fast pace of technology evolution leading to disruption thus loss of business, employment, the breakup of relationships (families) and health problems
  • World Economic Forum reports that there is a lack of three essential skills for ongoing success. To summarise these are intelligence, communication and emotional wisdom.
  • Getting much tougher to gain trust, compassion and ROI

The solution to this involves many components and one of the critical component being “Executive Presence” or as some ancient cultures call it JIGRA. You know, you love success. Success happens when you influence with trust, and compassion, this is what “Executive Presence” does for you.

I serve people and organisations focus upon the most important leadership attributes, and inspire to develop their own unique formula for success mastery. Connect with me or book me to be inspired by developing an executive presence that leads to your own unique formula of success mastery.
