Happy Memorial Day to my American friends! I am sending much love and gratitude out in honor of the men and women who have given up their life so we can enjoy freedom in the United States of America, and I thought this article was a perfect fit.


Give me a place to stand on and I will move the earth.” – Archimedes


Hey, I’m no slacker but those are some heavy words. “….I will MOVE the earth. What a statement!

As I sit pondering what Archimedes means, I begin thinking about my life. What does it take to move the earth? Am I willing to do what it takes to move the earth?

To move the earth requires the commitment to have a clear vision and definiteness of purpose.

Accepting the challenge to create a vision tall enough, wide enough, and deep enough to physically move the earth means stepping out of what you believe is possible.

Time passes on whether you build a big vision with clearly delineated priorities or not.

What awe-inspiring, earth-shattering vision will you create for your personal and professional life today?

What one action will you take to immediately begin turning that vision into a reality?

Remember, the how is not your business. And, it’s not mine either.

You are where you choose to be. Choose Upside.

See Upside. Be Upside. Live Upside.

p.s. My BIG vision for right now is to grow the Leadership Success Summit so we’re already working on 2013 and 2014. Save the date – January 25 – 26, 2013 in Ontario, California and check out the preview video – the 1st of many.
