Patrick E. Alcorn was born in South-central Los Angeles. He is the third child of an unwed teenage mother of four children. Although hardship and dysfunction marked his beginnings, Patrick excelled in grade school. However, by the ninth grade, he “rebelled until he was expelled” and placed in juvenile detention. After his detainment, Patrick attended an alternative school to ponder his future.
Fully motivated and recharged for life, he entered high school and reclaimed his passion for music and athletics. He played trombone in the marching band, played football, and ran track. Competitive by nature, Patrick won all-district and lettered in all activities. With no ninth grade transcript, he challenged himself through an Advanced Placement (AP) curriculum to ensure his collegiate opportunities.
Patrick’s high school schedule included more than academics and athletics. He served as a peer group counselor and was soon appointed by Mayor Tom Bradley as one of the first members of the Youth Advocacy Council created to deter other youths from making similar mistakes in judgment. As Patrick conducted presentations throughout the Los Angeles Unified School District, he discovered his passion as a public speaker.
Following high school, Patrick received an appointment to the United States Military Academy at West Point. He achieved remarkable results both on and off the field. As a US Army engineer, Patrick was awarded the National Defense Service Medal, the 3rd Infantry Division Distinguished Graduate Award, the Audey L. Murphy Award for Outstanding Leadership, two Army Commendation Medals and two Army Achievement Medals. His professional accomplishments include service as a deputy city councilman. And he was an award-winning sales professional for two Fortune 100 companies.

15 Invaluable Laws of Growth
In order to reach your potential, you must be intentional about personal growth
This training curriculum will help you understand how personal growth really works, and how you can develop yourself to become a more effective and fulfilled individual. You will learn how to build up your sense of purpose and become more successful in every area of your life.
Everyone Communicates, Few Connect
Connecting Increases Your Influence in Every Situation
Learn how to identify with people and relate to others in a way that increases your influence with them. To be a successful leader, you need to learn to communicate in a way that connects with others. If you can connect with others—one-on-one, in groups, and with an audience—your sense of community improves, your ability to create teamwork increases, and your influence skyrockets. People who connect with others have better relationships, experience less conflict, and get more things done than those who cannot connect. Leaders who have learned the art of connection are able to communicate their ideas persuasively, establishing buy-in and attracting followers.
Few People Are Successful Unless a Lot of People Want Them To Be
We venerate great leaders, and we have the tendency to assume their accomplishments came about regardless of the assistance they received from others. The truth, however, is that no leader would be great without the support and help of teammates. As a leader, you will never get ahead until your people are behind you.
Success is knowing your purpose in life; growing to your maximum potential; sowing the seeds that benefit others. It is a rather simple recipe, yet requires awareness, study, practice and mentoring to achieve. To become a REAL Success—it is imperative to RELATE to others better as you understand relational rules. Adding value to people helps them to reach their full potential. Recognizing and building on the leadership potential in those around you and applying teamwork laws will help you take others to a higher level by EQUIPPING them with the proper skill sets. Improving your ATTITUDE through daily practices, understanding the affect your attitude has on you and those around you, and adopting an attitude that makes challenges easier to overcome is key to your success. Emulating what successful leaders do to remain at the top, LEADING others successfully to where you have gone and beyond, and influencing others from the heart—not just the head—is the remaining piece of the puzzle for REAL success.
Becoming a Person of Influence
Practical and easy principles to apply to everyday life
Becoming a Person of Influence recognizes that everyone influences others. You don’t have to be in a high-profile occupation to be an influencer; whenever your life connects with another person, you exert influence. Everything you do– at home, at work, or at play—has an impact on the lives of those around you. No matter what your goals are in life, you can achieve them faster, you can be more effective and the contribution you make can be longer lasting if you learn to develop your influence. Managers will see their employees respond with new enthusiasm. Parents will connect with their children on a deeper level. Coaches will see players blossom. Pastors will reach more people. Salespeople will break records.
