Here’s a pic of Gail and Lynn (2 of my sisters) and I the day before the Philadelphia marathon. We ran the half marathon…13.1 miles. I have run four full marathons before. This year, I decided to run the half. It’s easier and takes less time to train…and it is still extreme enough that it gets your attention.
The race route winds through Philadelphia…to Penn’s Landing, through Drexel University, along the Schukyll River. I was overcome with emotion every time I saw someone spot a cheering loved one on the side of the road: Yeah!! You are doing great!! I’m so proud of you! If you have ever run or watched a marathon, it will amaze you who actually finishes. Really big, super old, too young, too skinny, wicked wobbly people finish marathons. As they do, you might think, “Hmmm. If they can do it, maybe I can do it.” You might make a decision to get in the game.
Last year, Lynn and Gail came to Philly to cheer me on. They were inspired by the event, by the sea of positive power, by the best of humanity. It’s a massive expression of setting goals and achieving them…even if the odds are stacked against you. This year they were in the race…not on the sidelines. Very cool!
Next month, I am heading back to the Davis Correctional Facility in Holdenville, OK. Gail and I will be working with them on their Biz Plans and getting them up to speed on accounting programs. The gentlemen in this class are the most willing, least whiney students I have ever had.
They have had it with sitting on the sidelines and just want to get back in the game.
How about you? Why not do something amazing with your business, with your life? 2009 is just around the corner. Whatever you had planned…why not triple the expectation?
Love, peace, $$,
