Doug Grady: Simple Isn't Easy

Doug Grady: Simple Isn't Easy

Doug Grady has been studying and teaching the pathways to personal potential for over 20 years. He is a graduate of Tulane University where he majored in political economy. After four years in the insurance business, he began his career in the personal and professional development industry. Doug is a professional speaker, musician, and President of High Achievers. He is the author of The Ripple Effect. His companies, writings, training, and music are designed with one purpose: to help people reach their God-given potential.

Doug gives a significant portion of his time and money to local and global causes. He has been on several mission trips, most recently to Ecuador where he was part of a twelve man team building homes for the poorest of the poor. Doug also wrote The (unofficial) Tough Mudder Song after participating in his first of five Tough Mudders.

THE 7 PRINCIPLES OF THE RIPPLE EFFECT

  1. Where you are is not an accident
  2. You have extraordinary potential that will never be reached by living an ordinary life
  3. There is a thin line between mediocrity and greatness
  4. Embrace the struggle
  5. One simple choice can change the course of your life
  6. “Doing the work” is not enough
  7. Integrity matters

 

THE FOUR LEVELS OF INTEGRITY

Explores how specifically to live a life of integrity both personally and professionally. 

  • Level One: The Carrot and the Stick. Integrity happens primarily through an external structure which has been set up to encourage desired behavior and discourage unwanted behavior.
  • Level Two: Do it Anyway. Integrity happens independently of feelings and external circumstances.
  • Level Three: Lifestyle. Integrity is a natural, pleasant self-expression of being or becoming.
  • Level Four: Throw Your Hat in the Ring: the act of making an external, time-bounded commitment of what you intend to take on or accomplish. Internal and external drives combine seamlessly in a life of integrity.
