Jumpstart - Nothing but home runs

Jumpstart - Nothing but home runs

July 21, 2021

Yesterday I sat down to meditate at the big community park here in Key Largo.

Afterward, I took a little walk around the park and discovered an old man on one of the baseball fields tossing up a softball, hitting a home run, and then running the bases.

But there’s more to this story inspiring story:

  • Discover how this man (out of shape and well into his sixties) consistently hit home runs over and over
  • Decide how to keep score such that you’re always winning
  • Learn why it’s never too late to start hitting home runs

This is such a touching and motivating example of “dance like no one is watching” >>>

Jumpstart - Change YOUR Mind

July 20, 2021

I once heard someone joke, “my mind is a scary place, I never go there at night and try not to go there alone.”

Everyone has limiting, negative, self-defeating thoughts and for most of us, they run habitually through our minds.

  • In this JumpStart, learn the power of “STOP” in changing your thoughts
  • Why you should “call an audible” on your negative thoughts and then argue them into submission
  • The most powerful thought you can hold

Don’t let your own mind keep you from enjoying life, learn how to think and live the life you desire starting now >>>

Jumpstart - The “Other” Shift

Jumpstart - The “Other” Shift

July 19, 2021

The movie “The Big Short” is a great explanation of the housing collapse of ‘08 and the powerful ensemble cast in the movie are excellent.

In one scene, Steve Carrell’s character enters a group therapy session late and begins addressing everyone assembled loudly talking over the man who was sharing something deeply personal.

In time, Carrell’s character heals from his grief over his brother’s suicide and his focus begins to shift from himself toward others.

It helps us all to remember that:

  • Self-obsessed people are hurting, not hateful
  • Saying “You first” in situations is an affirmation of mental health and maturity
  • Giving others the right of way can actually lead to greater abundance

Today, let’s honor Disney’s Chip and Dale by saying, “After you…” >>>

Jumpstart - A Little is Better Than a Lot

Jumpstart - A Little is Better Than a Lot

July 18, 2021

When I was a kid, I wanted to play the drums but my mother, however, insisted we all learn to play piano first before moving on to other instruments.

My teacher Miss Nell required a practice journal at each lesson -- I hated the piano and so I rarely practiced.

I decided to do a week’s worth of practice in one day pushing myself through 3 hours of clunky scales but rather than improving, I discovered:

  • This made me hate the piano even more
  • A little every day adds up to a lot more than a lot now and then
  • Little consistencies are the secret to great lives

Let’s talk about how to incorporate little things that improve your life into your day starting now >>>

Jumpstart - Anchors

Jumpstart - Anchors

July 15, 2021

One of my all-time favorite quotations is from the French poet Collete, “I lived a wonderful life, it’s too bad I didn’t realize it at the time.”

  • Do you ever long to go back and enjoy something now lost to you?
  • Do you feel like life is always pushing you forward with lots of stress and little joy?
  • Do you find yourself taking important people and moments for granted?

If you said “yes” to any of these questions, this JumpStart will help you begin to enjoy life more in the moment rather than as a hazy past memory.

You have a wonderful life; it’s time to start enjoying it now >>>

Jumpstart - Everybody’s a grape

Jumpstart - Everybody’s a grape

July 13, 2021

Remember the California Raisins?

They were claymation commercial characters promoting raisins from California to the world dancing to “Heard it through the grapevine.”

(Really great marketing if I remember it all these years, right?)

Well, raisins come from grapes and today I’m traveling to deliver a speech at a winery so I wanted to remind you of some important lessons we can learn from grapes:

  • Our options are ripe or rot (just like a grape)
  • You can choose who and what causes you to ripen (unlike a grape)
  • One thing determines 90% of who you are (and you can control it)

Begin now to consciously choose who are you are “ripening into” >>>

Jumpstart - Change Targets

July 9, 2021

During World War II, Winston Churchill endured incredible stress as he tried to liberate the allies from the encroachment of Germany.

Jumpstart - Onward, Forward

Jumpstart - Onward, Forward

July 8, 2021

One of the things I love about speaking in Indianapolis, IN is going to the Rhythm! Discovery Center in downtown, which is an interactive museum about drums and drumming.

There behind glass, you’ll get to see one of the actual drums played to inspire Napolean’s troops forward in battle.

Did you know that Napolean’s drummers were taught only the march forward drum pattern and were never taught how to signal a retreat.  

Why? Because “retreat” was not in Napolean’s vernacular.

In today’s JumpStart learn:

  • Why “Onward, Forward,” is the best way to live life (Yep, another Ted Lasso reference)
  • Why retreating from life leads to decay and unhappiness
  • How to begin moving forward and living life more fully starting now

Charge!!!  >>>
