A central theme in Lance Secretan's books, The Spark, the Flame and the Torch and Inspire: What Great Leaders Do is the concept of Destiny (WHY I am here), Character (how I will BE and what I will stand for), and Calling (what I will DO). To know one's Destiny, Character and Calling - what Lance calls our "why-be-do" - is liberating and empowering; it inspires us and therefore others. Here you can submit your "why-be-do" and gain inspiration from the examples of others. Be inspired and inspiring!
