Hi Team... 

I hope your week is off to a great start!

The past few days I have been settling into New York... and it has been great to be home!

Yesterday, I did a five mile walk and while I was drenched in sweat, I took a few minutes to strengthen my vision....

That process for me always begins with the question: What is my mission?

That is the magic question...

  • What is your mission?
  • Why are you here?
  • What is it that you want to be known for?
  • But, most importantly, who are you trying to help?

You see, these follow up questions are all rooted in your mission.

I hear over and over again that people are suffering from a lack of passion, depression, frustration, etc....

These conditions can be conquered when the mission becomes clear...

If you know what you stand for... you then wake up each day to execute on that "what you stand for"...

And, it feels really good knowing you are moving closer to goal and acting in alignment with your mission...

You see, what people really are craving at the roots are:

  • Significance
  • Security
  • Safety

The 3-S's...

Every action, thought, and emotion taken by people is wrapped around these 3-words...

Most people are completely driven by these 3-words but are not even aware of it...

It is amazing the amount of pressure we put on ourselves as we drive forward to bring the 3-S's to life in our life...

I want to tell you this though...

If you stay focused on a clear mission, one that is aligns with who you are and the problems you want to solve, you will naturally achieve the 3-S's... and will live a life you are proud of.

I believe we all have a mission in life- it is our job to find it, or, at least bring clarity to it. 

Since we all have a bit of extra time right now, I encourage you to sit down and ask yourself some of these questions.. most specifically about your mission.

  • What is it?
  • Why is it important to you?
  • How can it impact others?
  • What does it do for you?

Powerful questions. 

These answers are the answers you seek.

I Coach many people that get into "sticking" points in life that jam them up...

To overcome, we create and generate action based on the answers to the above questions...

Your will to overcome and power forward is all you need to move yourself forward and live a life of impact.

Take the time.

Answer the questions.

Let's GO!

Play to Win!

Your Coach,
