What's Our Obligation?

Deeds, not words

Met a friend for lunch yesterday (pictured above), he’s in his mid-50s, single, and he says, and has been saying, for a long time that he wants to work out more. Deeds, not words reveal the truth. Same with someone who says they want to publish a book.

Deeds, not words.

Clear?

Good.

Be amazed and be amazing.

By the way, i’m talking about physical vibrancy deeds. Wanting to work out but not working is like not wanting to work out. i know it sounds stupid, because i totally wish i had all seven Disney Business books published by now.

The “deeds, not words” mantra is inspired by the reality that i currently have no Disney Business books publicly available. i guess i really do not want to publish Disney Business books.

Awareness is critical but isn’t enough

Awareness is the first important step, but it’s not enough.

Nothing happens until energy is exerted – energy produces action. Action is the catalyst.

Before awareness and after awareness, motivation is the single greatest influencer for action.

And action comes from tension, desire, and fear.

Note:

Action is the hard part to get started.

Motivation drives long term results.

Motivation is the hardest part to sustain.

Of course it’s uncomfortable

Disney motivational speaker
Common sense, and often too little in common practice.

Of course it’s uncomfortable.

What?

Pursuing your dream with vigor.

Personal vibrancy, is this not what you deserve?

Dear Son

Life without a clear, concise, compelling goal

Shot putter's dirty t-shirt
Why is one side dirty while the other isn’t? Because he was practicing the Shot Put.

 

Every teen (even us back in the day) has the opportunity to discover small seeds of possibility within themselves…

He didn’t want to miss Track & Field practice yesterday, a Saturday.

It was only his third practice with the team that has been practicing for two months already.

This is a first on so many levels.

  • He’s never done sports
  • Never expressed interest in sports
  • Never felt confident enough to consider sports

He (independently) coordinated and followed up (and followed through) with Coach Williams.

And i have this vision that in the future he will recall this experience and it will give him what he needs to overcome fear, uncertainty, and doubt.

Truth doesn’t care if we believe it

Disney speaker jeff noel quote

What we accept by default becomes our standard.

This is true whether we believe it or not.

And truth doesn’t care what we believe.

Truth leaves it up to us to care.
