In 1911 Arthur Brisbane said, "Use a picture: It's worth a thousand words." Well, there you go. The picture on the left was made at the Great Pyramid just outside of Cairo. We literally rode a camel through the backside of the desert to get there, poor camel. The picture on the right is from this past summer taken in front of a hat store in Madrid. In the first photo, I was 48 years old, and in the second, I was 60. It's amazing what a few years can do for you or against you.
In 2010 I had a life-changing experience. For the very first time in my life at 50 years of age, I went through a life planning process with a professional coach. While I set several goals during this process, there was one that has impacted my life more than any other. During my life planning process, I committed to getting healthy. My goal was pretty simple; I want to live healthily and die healthy. As a result, I hired a personal training and wrote him a check for $4,000.00 before I went through a single training session. Six months later, I had lost 55 pounds and was running from 6 to 8 miles every day of the week. Twelve years later, well look at the picture which one of these guys would you rather be?
This leads me to 2020! Over the past seven years, I have been working with Will Mancini and the entire crew at Auxano and Younique, helping those committed to a greater good go further, faster, and longer than they imagined possible. There is nothing more exciting than seeing a leader discover their life design and develop a life plan that allows them to be their best and achieve their goals.
On January 21, 2020, I'm going to launch our webinar series on How A Personal Life Plan Can Change Your Life. Join me at 11 AM EST, where I will be sharing:
As you get those traditional New Year Resolutions out of the way, let's connect and begin a dialogue that could change your life. How do I know? Because it changed my life, all I know is I was fat, and now I'm not.
