Wednesday, May 30th 2012, I attended the Get Motivated Business Seminar. If you weren’t there, you missed something special. There are dates in other cities. Check out the website (GetMotivated.com). I promise you that it will be money well spent.
Singing and bobbing my head as I drove home that day, I was newly inspired. I began texting myself notes on how wonderful the experience was. Wish I hadn’t been so sore and tired; I’d have wanted to stay longer. Of course, it was over; but, you never know what kind of stragglers you may run in to.
I’m inspired. I’m motivated. I’m ready to work. Nothing but this surgery will slow me down. Too bad it is upon me. If I hadn’t waited two years for the authorization from the insurance company, I would put it off for 6 months. But, tomorrow morning I awake and head to surgery. And at least I had the chance to experience this seminar that gave me my new found sense of hope – a new joy in my life’s path.
Great people. Fun. Sweet snacks. There were even a few cuties. Huh? What? Did I say that? Oh well. I am single. It’s allowed. I get to look and touch. Remember, I am ‘moving on’ to new things – new people. 🙂
I was disappointed at first. I think mostly this was because I never went to sleep the night before. As I sat there amongst hundreds of people, all I could think of was my bed. After getting some work done the night before, I just had to watch ‘Man on a Ledge.’ Good movie. Not what I expected, but that is the point, right? Anyway, I was up and determined to learn something.
After I kicked myself in the butt real quick, I listened to the different speakers. That’s when it hit me; there was something for everyone at this seminar. Though it wasn’t pertinent to my needs, Bill Town was very informative and friendly.
And, Mr. Bill Cosby was just like his character Mr. Huxtable; he had great facial expressions and a sense of humor to boot. What am I saying? He is ‘Bill Cosby’; of course he is hilarious. I recall him asking the audience, to show by clapping, how many people have employees who work for them. He told the crowd that he had some wisdom to impart on them. He had the perfect way to help motivate employees. Mr. Cosby went on to tell them that they just have to get their employees together and show them videos of unemployed people. Now, for me, that would be enough motivation. He’s funny.
The other speakers had wonderful information also. And, if I hadn’t been running my mouth so much, I wouldn’t have missed Geno Auriemma and Barbara Corcoran; I had hoped to hear how they ‘got their move on.’ Some attendees came to see all of the speakers, but many had their favorites as I did. Then there was the great Eli Manning. Don’t get me wrong; I’m not a Giants fan, but he is cute. He also spoke well, and he shared some inspirational stories from his younger years.
It’s just what I needed. You know how sometimes life just seems to be moving along; things are busy, and then we start to get worn out? Then, before you know it, inspiration jumps out at you from an unexpected, exciting source. I learned what we all already know. I learned that if you want to do something, just do it. No procrastination. No fear. No excuses. Do it. So, I’m done with life getting in the way of my goals. I’m on the move.
As my friend, Kelly, said recently, “You are on a roll.” And, yes, I am.
I am, because I am ‘moving on.’
What about you?
