Draft the Constitution of You on Constitution Day

U.S. Constitution and Citizenship Day
September 17

The founding fathers believed in writing The Constitution of the United States to inspire and guide the country.

They took action to draft this forward-thinking document.

The same principles call on us to write constitutions to lead our lives, families, and organizations.

Constitution Day and Your Constitution

This is the first workshop Life Leaders has offered on Constitution Day. We are beginning by inviting members and a few friends who want to take advanced steps on their plans for life. We will offer you water and coffee, a sip of wine donated if you wish, provide a few minutes on concepts and tools, then allow most of the time for writing your constitution, plus coaching if you want it. The template provided will offer modern-day language to prompt your thinking about mission, vision, values, beliefs, and strategies, which are also embedded in the Constitution. Use our template or adapt your own.

Students will understand the Constitution better if they write one for themselves. Families can live better together if they identify shared vision and values. Individuals live better if they internalize their Constitution just as the U.S. Constitution guides laws, plans, and budgets.

You probably will receive bonus ideas for your desired legacy, lifestyle, and goals to fulfill those. The “Big 3” parts of a plan that can add to goals: Constitution, Legacy Vision, Lifestyle Vision. College students who have written these with us have improved college and career decisions plus motivation due to having more purpose. Mission for Marriage statements have helped couples, engaged and married.

Empowerment Week connects to Constitution Day

We presented a seminar last week on “Earning Empowerment” to support you and Empowerment Week in Birmingham, which focuses on commemorative and service events. If you also want to receive lessons and tools as well as take action on how to earn empowerment, you can visit and/or join Life Leaders. You can learn “Levels of Earning and Delegating Empowerment” and how to prepare better in professional and other areas of life. Writing your Constitution with a draft mission, vision, values, and strategies provides inspiration and guidance toward your goals. For those who want more empowerment, this is a valuable step.

Constitution Day

Constitution Day and Citizenship Day is a combined event that is annually observed in the United States on September 17. This event commemorates the formation and signing of the Constitution of the United States on September 17, 1787. It also recognizes all who, by coming of age or by naturalization, have become US citizens.

Life Leaders America is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit based in Alabama that presents events monthly plus provides public service programs supported by volunteers, staff, and budgets funded by membership donations, grants, and sponsorships.

Earning Empowerment Takes Action

True Empowerment comes from earning it by individuals, teams, families, and organizations–and about society providing opportunity.

Empowerment Week starts Friday for the City of Birmingham, with nicknames such as Magic City, Freedom City, and more.

Concepts, Benefits, and Contents of the Seminar

Earning Empowerment is key to taking action as a true patriot and true professional to act on our freedom to flourish. 

In this seminar, we will provide a handout and instruction to provide you a tool to know better how to earn and delegate empowerment based on level of trust in attitude and ability.

Emerging leaders may benefit most. For mature leaders, they likely understand the concept, though this model will provide a tool to state intent with others for you choose when to delegate and when to direct. Intent and instincts should improve. Cooperation can increase and conflict decrease.

We will summarize the empowerment model that has 7 levels. We will provide an updated workbook with improved content and a new cover. The full seminar is core professional and leadership training highly recommended for organizations.

The event is free thanks to support of members and grants we receive from foundations and other sponsors. If you wish, you have the option to donate for your consumption of refreshments, for membership if you wish to join, or for a a project you value. No pressure. It is mission over money. We seek to serve and look forward to your attendance.

Life Leaders Institute and Roman Street Music

The Roman Street Concert and Life Leaders support was a big success–great music and fellowship in a full room at Moonlight on the Mountain. The band thanked Life Leaders for attracting so many in the audience and told the group of the young guitarists playing at Life Leaders seminars and other events even before Roman Street Music was formed.

This was a special event of Life Leaders inviting members and friends. Many took our summary sheet about Life Leaders or provided information to join the mailing list.

Life Leaders hosts each December a Year-End Celebration of Progress and Plans. We are exploring dates and options to feature Roman Street to make our event better and larger to expand our community service and support. If you would like to receive an invitation to the event, you can send your name and email information for us to add you to the mailing list. If already a subscriber, you can edit your subscription preferences when receiving the next mailing from us.
