How Much Is Enough?

Wellness and the cultural adjustment cycle

cultural adjustment cycle
The highs and lows happen because of things we control and because of things we can’t. Focus on leveling out the things you can.

 

Like life and the cultural adjustment cycle, our wellness efforts (and results) will ebb and flow.

Dance with this.

And never stop dancing.

Discontinuing your dance means your belief is gone.

The key to motivation is belief

The key to motivation is belief.

Don’t believe it?

Look in your “past-history” mirror.

Your greatest, most meaningful accomplishments, how critical was your motivation?

How critical was your desire to achieve your goal?

Where there not numerous small, medium, and large obstacles?

What led you to overcome them all?

i rest my case your Honor.

Ever Think Like This?

Where do you see yourself?

Best Disney Institute Speakers
As a Disney Institute participant, i was asked to walk through Disney’s Hollywood Studios with my tablemates and photograph Magic.

 

Orlando Based Disney Speakers
Capturing a moment in time. My two partners are from South America. i was participating to learn the logistics of a new technology involving iPads in our Disney Institute curriculum.

i’m one of the slowest people in the world.

i’m one of the fastest people in the world.

Which one is true?

They’re both true.

How?

In the middle (think bell curve) of an age-based runner demographic of 55 to 59-year-olds, i’m one of the fastest.

But if we followed a traditional bell curve to the far right, and compared my speed to the outliers – the strongest and most fit 55 to 59 year-olds – i’m one of the slowest.

#Self-Reflection

Be careful where you set your bar. It may be too low.

A low bar has a direct and proportion affect on our motivation to achieve great things.

Our motivation influences our result.

You’re welcome.

Looking For Creative Ideas?

i can’t and i won’t are enemies

Motivational speakers
Anyone can write a book and self-publish it, but most won’t. Photo: Summer 2017 in Glacier National Park…Lake McDonald in the background with smoke from a forest fire. i am an expert in fear and doubt – it took me 30 years to write the first sentence, two more to finish, and then an additional two more years to have the courage to publish.

 

You are the CEO of You, Inc.

What do you think a CEO is supposed to do?

Why?

Let me guess.

Your answer is the one you’ve been taught to regurgitate.

But you’re balking.

What are you afraid of?

Are you afraid of going off alone?

Everyone knows straying from the well-worn path, the “tried and true academic recipe”  may lead to failure.

But not straying may lead to regret.

Which do you fear more?

Pick the toughest battle.

Fight regret.

And remember…

i can’t and i won’t are enemies.

i can’t works insidiously to pose as i won’t.

You can’t or you won’t.

Which one is it?

Impossible Is For Amateurs

They can tell it’s an excuse from a mile away

Of all the people who know how difficult it is to get in good physical condition and then stay there for a lifetime, it’s the people who are doing it now that fully understand what’s required to overcome and adapt a previous lifestyle.

Anyone who has overcome and sustained the “personal victory” knows what excuses sound like better than anyone else.
