(Principles are basic truths that, when applied, cause success to come to you easier and quicker.)


A redwood tree planted in northern California can grow well.

A magnolia tree planted in southern Georgia can grow well.

But neither a redwood planted in southern Georgia nor a magnolia planted in northern California does well at all.

Doing poorly is not the fault of the tree, it’s the location that’s the problem.


Coaching Point: Are you planted in the right climate? The right community? The right family? The right industry? The right job? Do you need to change any of your locations?
