Beware the well-worn paths

Epcot’s Voices of Liberty, in red, are holding their microphones in the hand corresponding with their place on stage. No one knows nor cares, except Disney. And me.

Beware the well-worn paths.

They never lead to breakthroughs.

Beware the dark, shadowy paths too.

The dark paths are the ones that eventually lead to breakthroughs, but on the journey much, if not everything, can be lost.

Learn to be a risk taker the same way you learn to save and invest money – slowly and a little bit at a time, over time.

The magic of compound interest for financial growth, sprinkled with faith, in the historically highest return, is stocks.

Non-financial and non-threatening, but uncomfortable risks using confidence, these investments will pay the highest “confidence” dividends over time.

Could This Change Your Life?

Universally agreed upon

Disney Keynote Speakers
Still can’t find an “Undaunted” photo…and stumbled upon this one from University of Iowa Health Care. The passion to make a remarkable difference as a speaker led to me telling this story.

Approach mindset: No-brainer wisdom, universally agreed upon, always followed.

You have to feel passionate in order to persevere.

Avoidance mindset: No-brainer wisdom, universally agreed upon, rarely followed.

You have to feel passionate or you’ll give up.

Dear Universe, thank you for my passion. And thank you, Universe, for the mind shift.

Be the first?

The Many Glacier Valley. George Grinnell is reputed to be the first white man to visit what is now called Grinnell Glacier.

Be the first?

What does this mean?

You can define it any way you want.

Does it matter to be the first?

Lots of research touting the benefits of being first to market. You’re probably familiar.

Not as much chatter about becoming a category.

Life is about choices.

Choices birth consequences and/or opportunities. Opportunities birth a price that must be paid.

The price to be paid then leads us back to the beginning of the cycle – a choice must be made – to pay or walk away.

Could This Change Your Life?

There’s a time and a place to give up

quitting
Sad, but true. Do want you want to do with your life. It’s your life. Balance is a moving target.

There’s a time and a place to give up.

You can only learn this by experimenting with your judgment – this is your personal leadership responsibility.

Often, the test results from your experimenting won’t be available for months, years, even decades.

For example, giving up on staying active, eating and resting well, and staying motivated and having fun won’t generally reveal what a mistake that was until decades later.
