What would happen if you threw your whole self into your dream?
What do you give back for what you get?
These are questions that were asked during Be the Change in Orlando this past weekend. The four-day conference opened with a marching band and cheerleaders. There were pom-poms waiting for attendees when we first arrived in the Peabody Ballroom.
Suzanne Evans used the theme of of sports to convey that when you understand the game of business, everything becomes easier. According to Suzanne, the two keys to success are enthusiasm and commitment.
Enthusiasm is fairly simple, particularly if you are doing something that you love. But commitment takes some work.
One of the quotes I shared on Tuesday from Suzanne Evans was “God gave you a gift and he deserves a return on his investment.” She pushed us to find our point of view and to “make your mess your message.” I will probably talk more about this piece in a future vlog, but for now, I wanted to share a video Suzanne played for us. (And, no, this conference had nothing to do with religion. It was all about making money as an entrepreneur.)
This video is 23 minutes long and well worth your time. If you don’t have time to watch it now, I hope you will make some time later. And while it is a sermon, you don’t have to be religious (or Christian) to get the message.
My question to you is, are you fully committed to what you are doing in your personal and professional life?
