Top Leadership Virtues/Characteristics a Leader Must Have
The power of self-discipline: The opportunity to do more, be more, experience more.
Why do leaders need to create a bucket list?
Turning a bucket list into a goal
- Turning idea into a dream
- Breaking down your dream into a goal
Do goals and dreams have to do with your purpose?
- Your purpose should be a verb.
- Mixing up goals and dreams and purpose.
- Figuring out what your verb is and be intentional about it
The difference between purpose and career and passion
If you’re traveling down the road of life…
- Your purpose is the road or the highway.
- Getting on the right road to get to the right destination.
- Your career is the vehicle in which you travel down that road.
- You can have more than one vehicle.
- Passion is your fuel. A mix of inspiration, motivation, rest, travel, whatever refuels you.
- The larger the vehicle, the more fuel you will need.
- The passion bucket – surrounding yourself with people and things that refuel you
Why personal leadership matters:
- Goes back to self-discipline
- Being intentional
- Living a life of intention so you can do more than status quo
- Maximizing your potential not for yourself but to help other people
- To want more in order to give more
- Being the best possible version of you so you can help other people become the best versions of themselves.

Ryan’s final thoughts for the listeners:
“Get a pen and paper. Write down 15 items – things that you have always wanted to do in your life… don’t ‘how’ it all and figure out how it’s going to happen… if life was unlimited, what would I do?”
