In Making a Difference, author Steve Gilliland brilliantly lays out three manageable means that make it possible for every person to unlock their potential and exert profound influence. Filled with inspirational anecdotes, laugh-out-loud humor, and thought provoking ideas, this book is an eye-opening journey that when put into practice, will make a considerable impact in your professional and personal life. As a master storyteller, Steve expounds on the essentials towards Making a Difference – Purpose, Passion, and Pride

Where you live, the money you possess, the money you stand to inherit, your marriage, the car you drive, and the friends you appear to have are outward signs of success and not necessarily indicators of inner fulfillment. The amount we earn or the success we achieve produces emptiness unless it is in line with a purpose beyond ourselves.

This book demonstrates that you don’t need a master’s degree or a doctorate to make the world a better place. Making a Difference confirms that purpose is the essential ingredient to motivation and the ultimate path to making a difference; passion is what allows you to overcome challenges and disregard people who try to extend their misfortunes and negative outlook to you; and pride is about you and your expectations. It is about realizing the importance of your role in life and taking pride in everything you do! This book is a profound idea that will impact your life.

Foreword by HERB KELLEHER Co-Founder, Chairman Emeritus and Former CEO of SOUTHWEST AIRLINES.

About the Author:

Steve Gilliland built a multimillion-dollar company from the ground up on the same philosophy he expounds to his audiences. If you continually learn more about your company, your industry, your customer and yourself, you will always be a leader. You will be purpose-driven rather than process-driven, and you will make a difference. His motto is straightforward: If you take care of people, the business will follow. Implementing this principle, he has helped people grow their businesses and expand their lives by teaching them to rethink their work, their relationships and themselves. His company was recognized in 2005 by the Pittsburgh Business Times as one of the fastest growing privately held companies in the region. Steve Gilliland, Inc. owns 17 copyrights and 13 registered trademarks. The trademark Enjoy The Ride™ is the principle foundation to Steve’s personal and professional philosophy.


Steve’s bestselling book Enjoy The Ride™ has been on the publisher’s best seller list for five consecutive years and he was named Author of the Year in 2010. In addition to being a bestselling author, Steve is recognized as a master storyteller and brilliant comedian. His appeal transcends barriers of age, culture and occupation has made him one of North America’s most sought-after speakers. As one newspaper stated, “Steve Gilliland is what happens when the humor of Ron White collides with the inspiration of Zig Ziglar.”

Review:

“Steve drives home the message of the importance of being purpose-driven and passionate about what you do. His observational skills, insight and life experiences are powerful, yet personal. This is a must-read book for everyone aspiring to make a difference!”      —Kimberly Green-Kerr, Vice President, Sprint



“Your insights into both the intellectual and emotional realms of how people are motivated are outstanding.”
                          —John Messman, Director Employee Relations, Boeing



“If any group or company is looking to engage their people, motivate their teams, and transform their organization, I would encourage them to read Steve Gilliland’s book. His message on purpose, passion and pride is resonating and prevailing.”           —Ian Taylor, Senior Vice President Global Services, Western Union
