Hey Team..

Hope you had a great weekend... and a great Monday!

This past weekend I was up in Cortland, speaking at the University up there...

It was a great Conference for the students....

And, even more special was the fact I got to see somebody I had not seen in about 10 years... Coach Ron McKeefery who got me started in this field a long time ago at the University of South Florida....

Who would of thought, almost 18 years after starting, the guy who got me started would be sharing the stage with me.... haha.. or vice versa....

It was an amazing day... and I walked away with a very powerful concept....

MOTIVATING THE ELEPHANT..

Elephants can be big...

They can be stubborn...

They can be unwilling to do what the leader says....

So it takes tactic, skill, and belief to get that elephant to move...

And, with that said, I think it is time we look at ourselves as situational ELEPHANTS..

We can be stubborn..

Resistant to change...

Unwilling to try new things..

Unable to let things go...

Holding onto the past which limits our forward movement...

So how do we motivate the elephant?

We talk to the elephant.. POSITIVELY...

We be KIND to the elephant...

We get the elephant to take ONE STEP.. rather than many....

We BELIEVE in the elephants strength, power, and fortitude...

We NEVER GIVE UP on the elephant...

And most importantly...

We realize the STRENGTH AND POWER of the elephant...

Friends, we are the elephants....

Capable of amazing things....

Activate that power by trusting the above...

Let's go move mountains....

Take the first step....

Chase Greatness..
