I recently attended Brendon Burchard's High Performance Academy. If I'm honest...I wasn't quite sure I wanted to go. I was busy. Aren't we all busy? I was in the middle of putting together classes for our fall programs. I was just plain tired out and wasn't excited about a cross country trip with a red-eye return flight that same weekend. I was worried that it was another event of "joiners", a gathering of firewalking humans hell bent on tapping into some magic power that could only be accessed by knowing the secret chant. Well, I went anyway and it was none of that. Yes, it was high engery. Yes, much of it was common sense that we need to be reminded of once in a while. Yes, much of it was simple. YES, there were some powerful moments and thoughts that resonated deeply and worth the time away from "being busy".
Brendon is a high enegy presenter with some useful information, but more importantly...he sometimes stops, hits you right in the gut and really makes you think hard. For me...three simple questions was worth the entire trip. If I took nothing else away at all, these 3 questions are my compass now in all I do in this busy world. Strip away the trappings of what the world measures success by and consider these questions each and every day. It will change your perspective and your priorities. Pretty simple...yet incredibly powerful. "Did I Live? Did I Love? Did I Matter?"
