Hey Team!

Last night I spoke at a library here in the Greenwich, CT area...

Amazing audience of kids, parents, executives, and corporate leaders...

Diverse crowd....

But one thing I love about speaking to a crowd that is so "spread-out" is that there are many commonalities between both kids and those at the top of the business world....

Ready...

1. They both have thoughts of doubt and fear.....

2. They both have dreams for themselves.....

3. They both are going to deal with challenging times...

Simple. We found common ground....

Last night, it was my job to share with them my book, Habits of a Champion and how some of the lessons and stories could help them overcome their greatest enemy... Themselves.

One of the stories I told was about "Living in Alignment"....

This requires you to be in full harmony with your thoughts, words, and behaviors....

Translated to: What I think, I also say, and then I do what I say and what I think,....

If you think one thing, say the opposite, and then do something different than what you think and what you say, you would be 100% out of alignment.. making you 100% full of the blarney....

Unfortunately, that is a lot of people.

Have you ever felt or seen yourself doing or saying something because it was the right thing to do or say because more people would like you for it?

Instead of being in "alignment", you played it safe, you did what the "crowd" expected of you... so you could maintain your "image"....

Hint: You were maintaining an image of somebody who can't even be themselves.. making public opinion more important that actually trusting and loving who you really are... to basically "look good"....

SO common.

Often called imposter syndrome... being somebody else for crowd approval.. or thinking you are not qualified in a skill set to be doing what you are doing....

My recommendation to you on this fine Thursday is this: F- THAT!

It is a bad thought process... 

Get in alignment... QUICK.

Thoughts, words, and actions... 100% aligned.. I promise your life will change...

Well... I am off to speak to another School today... time to change some kids lives!

Let's GO!

Chase Greatness...
