Livin’ the dream

Today’s posts include four Morgan Wallen music videos. Taking a break from the war, business, and Covid. Morgan has a storied past. He has, in my opinion, tried to redeem himself. It’s all any of us would want, a chance to prove ourselves worthy of respect. This first song reminds me of what it’s like to be a Disney Keynote speaker…you know, with all the glamour that comes with what outsiders perceive to be a ‘rock-star’ job…thank you Morgan for capturing the essence of the paradoxical reality of “fame”…

Livin’ the dream.

Take a moment to recall Bill Wither’s song, “Ain’t no sunshine when she’s gone”.

Always said while traveling constantly for Disney Institute, “Ain’t no glamour on the road.”

Mental F&D

Art is being present. Present to notice the shadow of one mountain (the one we are ascending) climbing up a mountain a couple miles away.

Mental F&D.

Mental focus and discipline.

This is how growth mindset is honed and mastered.

Positive focus

Your #1 job is to be an example, not a warning.

Think about what’s possible, don’t think about what’s not possible.

Vibrant is as

This plant (which many Americans label a weed) is extraordinarily vibrant in this photo.

Exquisitely vibrant. Boldly vibrant. As each of us can strive to be. Take our cue from Nature.

Vibrant is as vibrant does.

Sounds elementary.

Totally get it.

Remember, not-vibrant is as not-vibrant does.

You are a product of your habits.

Period.

Lean into discomfort

clothes for a suitcase
Will never again wear a business suit for a speech. Jeans, untucked shirt, possibly a jacket, and undoubtedly, running shoes.

Lean into discomfort means trying things that may not work.

Before you try something you have to think it up.

Lean into uncomfortable thoughts.

Particularly thoughts that come with no guarantee of working.

Thoughts that might get you laughed at, or ostracized.
