Why are you acting your age?

Disney Cast t-shirt
Yesterday at Disney University to mentor someone. What a childish tee shirt. Don’t you just love it?

 

morning victory
Morning victories are under-rated. Tim Ferris, above, will send you his 5 things if you click through. My challenge to you – make your own list. Own it. Change it when or if it becomes irrelevant. But own it. Stop using someone else’s recipe.

 

 

Why are you acting your age?

Because.

It was pounded into my brain as a child, and for some, even into our teen years.

Act your age.

Classic.

Parent to child.

Kids never want to act their age.

Regrettably, adults start acting their age at some point in their lives and never turn back. (of course, being drunk changes the math, but being drunk is not being in control – so it doesn’t count)

When was the last time you ran across the room with your arms out proclaiming, “Look at me, I’m flying.”?

When was the last time you climbed a tree?

i hope it was recently.

Are you?

Because i said i would
Yesterday i watched Alan Sheen’s TED Talk. He’s leading a movement, “Because I said I would.”

 

Everyone’s going through a hell no one knows about.

Are you happy?

Are you joyful?

Are you grateful?

Who’s the most positive person you know?

Authenticity, transparency, and enthusiasm

write like you mean it
Nearly everyone could write a book. Hardly anyone does. Fear, doubt, and excuses lead the way in why so many important books never get written.

 

Authenticity, transparency, and enthusiasm.

The three keys to sales.

And the script i use to tell myself was, “I’m not good at selling. i hate selling.”

Turns out, i excel at sales.

What changed?

The three things audience members – from executives to front-line employees – consistently tell me is that they observe an authenticity, transparency, and enthusiasm that is rarely seen in keynote speakers.

When i’m on the phone with a potential client who loves Disney, and they have a robust budget, Magic happens.

What’s Disney’s secret sauce?

 

People hire me for one reason, and one reason only.

To reveal Disney’s secret sauce.

What’s Disney’s secret sauce?

It’s simple.

It’s equivalent to Apple’s IOS – an Operating System that allows excellence (aka greatness) to scale, reproduce, and grow.

Think about these statements…

Our attitude affects us.

Our experience affects us.

Our beliefs affect us.

Our codependence affects us.

Our reflection (or lack thereof) affects us.

You may be able to make me smile, laugh or feel good.

But…

No one can make me happy but me.

Will Smith just revealed an operating system who’s DNA centers on a simple concept.

You are the CEO of YOU, Inc.

Welcome back home to Walt Disney World

Out for an hour-plus leisurely walk after breakfast, passing time until 10:30am when i would leave the Kentucky Drury Inn for the airport to come home.

Stumbled into a Barnes and Noble and what was staring at me in the foyer book racks?

This…

(Karma)

 

Glacier National Park
Glacier National Park is obviously listed in this book.

 

Glacier National Park
No photo credit is given for the Park this photo was taken. i’m betting on Glacier.

 

Glacier National Park
So i only want to open to page 338 and see the pictures.

 

Glacier National Park
Waterton (the Canadian sister Park with Glacier) is the first photo.

 

Glacier National Park
This is America’s only International Peace Park.

 

Glacier National Park
Well over one million acres.

 

Glacier National Park
The first trip involves an 8-day bike rental. Access to higher elevation trails won’t happen until mid-July this year.

 

Intentionally resisting the countdown until today.

Why?

Never want to post in real time when i’m away from home, especially an 11-day absence.

So, now that i’ve reached a safe date to begin a countdown…

Only 20 days until the flight to Kalispell, Montana.

And in the same breath, “Welcome back home to Walt Disney World.”

May 30 – June 10.

Leave in 20 days, return in 30.

Eleven days of writing.

And…

Sales meetings with:

Kalispell Chamber of Commerce, Whitefish Chamber of Commerce, Columbia Falls Chamber of Commerce, Glacier Conservancy, Xanterra Resorts, and The National Park Service.

Note: This post goes live the day after i return from an 11-day writer’s retreat in Glacier National Park.
