Why I “Go For It”



I recently had an opportunity to present to a group that I knew very little about, that reached out to me rather unexpectedly via LinkedIn.


After a few phone calls and skype meetings we had an agenda and topics for me to present.

In a couple of days, I had a presentation prepared that I knew I could deliver with confidence, clarity, and conviction.


As I was driving to the airport it hit me that I am literally going to be back in 24 hours.

Then for the first time during this whole process, it occurs to me this wasn’t normal.

For the first time, I wondered if I was capable of pulling this off.

Well it was too late now, so I just refocused on doing my best.

I will admit the day was a bit surreal, several times throughout the day the thought popped back in my head.

And then what felt like just a couple of hours I was back in the car on my way to the airport heading home.


I felt the day went very well, I don’t know if I fulfilled their vision for the presentation, but I did the best I knew how and that is all I can ask of myself.

During the flight home, while reflecting on the day’s events, I realized something.

At no time did I ever consider not doing it!

At no time did I question, if I could do it, if I was capable of doing it.

Sure, I’ve never done it before, so what. 100’s if not 1,000’s of people do this every day.

If they can do it, I certainly can.

The list of things I’ve done and tried seems nearly endless, because, “Going For It” is part of my daily activities.


What is your reaction when a new opportunity presents itself, do you “Go For It”?

I hope you are living a fulfilled life by “Going For It”, if not, give it a try, you will thank yourself.

Why I go to Convention.


As I sit here early in the morning(those that know me well, know I am not a 6am kind of guy) my 1st day back, wired, ready to go, wishing everyone was up so I could share all the Fantastic things I learned.

It occurred to me I wouldn’t have to share with everyone if they had just gone to the convention.

The immediate follow up thought was, “Why don’t more people go?”

Yes, I am physically tired from the travel. Yes, I am behind on my work as a result of going. Yes, it cost money that I can’t directly measure a return on my investment.

So, why do I go?


Sure, we always can use more knowledge.

Great Weather?

Sure, Phoenix was Sunny & 89degrees.

Relaxing Vacation, a Break from the Routine?

Sure, it was certainly a break from the routine.

These aren’t the reasons, I can learn from my desk, I am one of those guys that like the winter, and I also love what I do and rarely fell like I am stuck in a routine.

So again, Why Do I Go?


The new people I meet, the deeper connections I make with the people I already know.


I come home Renewed, Refreshed, and Refocused.

Energy & Passion!

Spending a few days with the best of the best. Watching them live with Purpose, Passion and with High Energy makes me want to reach higher in everything I do.

So, Why do you go to Conventions?
