Invited to the dining room of Steve Jones’ house in Exeter, fuel met up with the man behind the movement. There is an underlying passion, and reason for Steve’s passion and love for all things leadership and we wanted to know what it was. Was there an event that happened to drive Steve into this business? What was the opportunity that had been presented? We dig deep to understand the motive and the inspiration found to create such a powerful organisation.
“I have a lifelong obsession with movements – because movements change the world; movements leverage causes and businesses and movements transform lives and communities. But movements are catalysed and nurtured by movement leaders who focus on their ‘best lives’; modelling their character, skills and habits for their movements. These habits are caught by the movements they serve and the movement builds momentum through the viral spreading of these habits and ideas.This lifelong passion around ‘habits and movements has driven me to kick-start 8 enterprises over 25 years and to invest thousands of study hours and close to 6 figures into finding out as much as possible about being a Movement Leader, living our Best Lives and acquiring the skills and tools to keep up with this ever-passionate mind-set.”
Steve’s story takes an unexpected twist and demonstrates a huge power in shifting a negative situation into something promising.
After finishing an Iron Man Triathlon, Steve had been training with friends when Steve collapsed at the side of the road after suffering a cardiac arrest. An off-duty nurse passed, and started to perform CPR on Steve. Steve was revived in the ambulance, and was without oxygen for 14 minutes.
It was at this chapter in Steve’s life when came a whole load of clarification and thinking whilst in his recovery bed. This situation gave Steve the greater thinking and understanding of family, friends and faith. Steve believes that the world will only change due to people movements, and getting behind ideas. Spreading through locality, spreading through the world. It was his thinking before the incident but has become more of his passion since the incident happened.
Steve explains; “you can’t just do one or the other – real change makes in the world, are people who concentrate on the small habits in life, that impact in life. The power of online, digital marketing and media in today’s world is incredible, those tools in the hand of a movement leader can be very powerful.” Its captured Steve to engage and create resources and ideas around the whole idea of habits, movement and marketing funnels. “I don’t want to spend my time hanging out with people who are doing things simply to make a profit, I want to be around those who have genuine value.”
Steve now offers a selection of resources, courses, public speaking events, to guide those with a passion for making a difference. You can reach out to Steve using his social links or his website:
