The Movement

Made the decision to turn off the beaten path

Just the two of us until about 7am. Rick is a golfer.

And then there were three. Dave, right, is a hiker.

Nature saves the best for what a camera can’t capture…all our senses.

 

Only three guys (of 13) didn’t go golfing yesterday (second consecutive golf day): me, Dave, and Carl.

We are seen as, “They don’t like to golf”.

Everyone is cool with it, although the golfers wish every brother golfed.

And the three of us were wishing the golfers were hikers and explorers.

The best keynote speakers are full of drive and determination

Orlando Keynote Speakers

 

(photo: Overachievers are everywhere. Drive and determination are key weapons in the fight against mediocrity. Photo from yesterday in the gym parking lot.)

The herd is massive and includes almost all of us.

The movement is small, scattered, and often confused.

The herd is mediocrity.

The movement is drive and determination.

To live like you mean it.

To slay excuses and regrets. For good.

We are in charge of this. Period.

Six days until Disney retirement

Orlando Based Motivational Speakers

Six more days until retirement. Most colleagues think it’s going to be a stage in life to take it easy.

But there’s too much work to be done.

And too many people struggling to make sense of their midlife.

This is where the world could use a movement and someone to lead it.

This is where the world could use a little “Magic”.

Walking where Walt walked (onstage and backstage) inspires many people to up their game.

Taking risks is risky.

So is playing it safe.

Our clocks are ticking.

Moving forward with Mid Life Celebration, it seems reasonable to double check our comfort zone.

Consider where we are and do one or both of these:

1. Un-Like Mid Life Celebration’s Facebook page if you’re more comfortable with status quo and playing it safe. Sincere best wishes to you in your life. (Being part of The Herd is a very safe place to be)
2. Ask any of your friends who want to suck the marrow out of life to Like this page. (Seriously, this is the headwaters of a movement)

The Movement is to fully embrace living like we mean it.

Amazing things are possible for each and every one of us, if we have someone who can show us the way.

Mid Life Celebration is that someone.

For example, a year from now we’ll wish we had started today.

Life is not a dress rehearsal.

What would it be like to build a startup from nothing?

Last night was the first book club featuring Mid Life Celebration: rethink • reprioritize • recommit.

Hosted by Monica Flanagin Decker in her Valparaiso, Indiana home.

As Monica posted a Facebook update, her friend in South Carolina asked what all the buzz was about.

Then and there Monica convinced her friend to start a book club too, and feature Mid Life Celebration as their first book.

The rest of last night’s story continues at the…
