Business in the Front, Party in the Back!

Maybe MacGyver can pull it off (very well I might add), but I can’t.  I’m finally on the tail end of my mullet (no pun intended!).  While getting my hair cut last week with the same guy I’ve been going to for 12 years , it occurred to me how scared so many of us are of change and how comfortable we become with what we know.

After our extremely difficult time with Evan at the hospital, I decided I was going to start making some changes and try new things.  Life is too short not to.

I am incredibly excited to announce the launch of my company, Acclivity Performance!    After 15 years of teaching, training, speaking, and consulting, I am taking a huge leap.  I am energized, excited, and ready to roll!

I’m also thrilled about an e-learning module I’ve created on communication and behavior styles, and I’d love for you to watch it and let me know what you think!  Because you’ve been part of the weekly motivational email, for the next 10-days, you can view the module completely FREE of charge.  All I ask is that if you like it, you give it a thumbs up and a positive comment.   After the 10-day introductory period, there will be a fee, so make sure you check it out as soon as possible.

Over the last few weeks, I’ve had to come way out of my comfort zone, and I’ve learned a few things:

Grab The Bull by the Horns!

Have you ever looked in the mirror and wondered where the last 10 years have gone?  Have you thought about what your ideal life would look like?  Have you set yourself up to make that a reality?

Most of us go about our lives, caught up in the day-to-day stuff and without knowing it, years go by and we are no closer to accomplishing our goals.  For some of us, where we end up is exactly what we wanted.  For others, we land somewhere, draw a bulls-eye around ourselves and claim we’ve hit our mark.

I don’t think we fail to accomplish our goals because we aim too high and miss the target.  I think the real problem is that we aim too low and hit it.  If you could live your “perfect life”, what would that look like?  Not just from a materialistic standpoint, but what kind of career, relationships and hobbies would you want?

The Mountain

A son and his father were walking on the mountains. Suddenly, his son falls, hurts himself and screams: “AAAhhhhhhhhhhh!!!” To his surprise, he hears the voice repeating, somewhere in the mountain: “AAAhhhhhhhhhhh!!!”

Curious, he yells: “Who are you?” He receives the answer: “Who are you?”  Then the father screams to the mountain: “I admire you!” The voice answers: “I admire you!” Angered at the response, he screams: “Coward!” He receives the answer: “Coward!” He looks to his father and asks: “What’s going on?”
