April 2011 was an incredible month. I participated in the life changing Summit at Sea the first week. Little did I know that it would change the way I want to do business for good. It was not a paradigm shift for me, it was a paradigm flip. My three BIG take- a-ways from the five-day event:
Number one, Dream Bigger! There were literally hundreds of people who were happy, healthy, prosperous and yes… LIVING THEIR DREAM. It was, and still remains, incredibly inspiring.
Number two, Give Back More! I listened to some of the most incredible speakers and all had a common theme of giving back to the community. I have always considered giving back to be a big part of my yearly goals. However, after this trip, I am moved to make giving back an integral part of my business model. I am still thinking about different ways that I could do this. For now, I am offering free initial team assessments to help organizations and leaders get a new perspective on their team. If you know someone who can benefit, please forward this blog.
Number three, I AM BLESSED! I have always felt guided, provided, and looked after. I have traveled the world. I have meet amazing, influential people. This Summit Series provided to be another data point for me for how beautiful life can be when we are open to the blessings.
As the month moved forward, I realized that I was drawn to a particular organization. I looked at their website, noticed they are a local San Diego organization. I didn’t think much more of it. Then the following week, I noticed Oprah had them on her show. I smiled as I took this to be an omen. Two weeks later, I am volunteering to judge a high school Social Venture competition when I met the judge next to me. It turns out he is one of the founders of the organization and asked if I would be willing to help his team. I smiled and said “I would be honored.”
A full circle In Sync moment! Do you have something similar you are willing to share? I would love to hear it.
