Hindsight is always the clearest isn’t it? Many times we read stories of letter winners losing it all and most of us think, well that won’t happen to me! The recent story on NBA player Antoine Walker losing $110 million is a perfect example. We think how on earth could he possibly do this? I […]

Who Are You Grateful For and Why?

As I was prepping for a few upcoming talks this morning, I was hit with the realization of how absolutely blessed my life has been. From where my family has been to where we are today has been absolutely an incredibly awesome journey. One of the keys of getting to where we are today is through the connection to others. Whether it was through friends, family, mentors, coaches, books, podcasts, etc. each connection has added to the success we are experiencing today. Getting to live out my purpose and passion through speaking and workshops to high stress groups that serve our communities (i.e. 9-1-1 dispatchers, emergency responders, the medical community, etc.) has been so incredibly rewarding and fulfilling.

What one or two folks are you grateful for and why? Leave a comment by 5am CST on 12/5/14 for your chance to win a copy of one of my all time favorite mentor’s books…Dan Miller’s Wisdom Meets Passion book and audio book.

 

Here are just a few of mine…

To my awesome folks listed below…THANK you for giving me hope when I was down, giving me motivation to move during tough times, inspiring me to reach past my self limiting barriers, and giving me the support and encouragement to remember I am more than enough. I value and appreciate each of you! THANK YOU!!!!
