Be the Coffee Bean - Lead Before You're a Leader

Hey, what's up heroes? Another week has passed. I'm now 30 videos into this channel so there's plenty of great stuff out there for you. This week I'm going to talk about how to lead when you're not in a leadership position, so make sure you stick around and check that out.

Hi. My name's Roman Ryder and on this channel, I'll help you unlock your powers and be the hero of your story. If you're new to my channel make sure you click below and subscribe. I put out new videos every week and you don't want to miss out.

I was thinking back to some stories that really were big life changers for me. The first one is a story of the coffee bean. If you've ever heard that it's basically if you take a pot of boiling water and you put a egg in the water the egg's going to get hard. If you put a potato in the water the potato is going to get soft. But if you put a coffee bean in the water the coffee bean will change the color of the water, so it's going to change the water. You want to be the coffee bean. 

That's a great story. I love that. It's just kind of a simple reminder. I remember having "Be the coffee bean!" written on my whiteboard back in the day.

That brings me to another similar story. If you've ever seen Steve Jobs' Stanford commencement speech, it's amazing. I'm going to link to that video in the description below. Steve Jobs talks about basically everything that's out there was put in place by people no smarter than us. There's nothing we can't change. He also talks about doing great work. He says, "If you're going to spend a large portion of your life going to work every day, so why not do great work." By being the coffee bean and trying to make the changes in the world, changes in your job, changes in your company that you want to see and trying to do great work, you can be a leader while you're still not in that leadership position yet.

That's my message for this week. If you take a look in the description below I'm going to include a link to my Facebook group, The Hero of Mastermind. Please come, connect with me on there.
