I saw the movie “Amelia” recently. It’s the story of Amelia Earhart, who was the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean (a feat that had only been accomplished by Charles Lindberg at the time).

In the movie there is a scene where she has been flying all night over the Atlantic, and is growing weary. She begins to nod off and then gets a second wind and tells herself, “Come on Amelia, if Lindbergh can do it? YOU can do it!”

As I watched that scene, I couldn’t help but think to myself that this is exactly how it is in ACN.

  • If Jeff Weber can do it? You can do it!
  • If Mike Bisutti can do it? You can do it!
  • If Jennifer Dowd can do it? You can do it!
  • If Spencer Hunn can do it? You can do it!
  • If Craig Kotter can do it? You can do it!

The fact of the matter is that no one in ACN is trail blazing their way to Senior Vice President. It’s been done before. These are NOT unchartered waters. Follow the proverbial “yellow brick road!”

There is no need to reinvent the wheel here in ACN. Just do what those who have gone before you have done. If you have an original idea? Take a cold shower…it’ll go away!

14 days left until Anaheim.

It’s been four weeks since I have added anything here online. I have had so many thoughts and ideas run through my mind in that time. But as I mentioned in that last post, I have also had life get in the way. My Grandmother is still holding on (for those who are interested).

One of the absolutely great things about ACN is that you have the opportunity to “start over” at any time. Ten days ago, I decided to do just that. I have recommitted to my goal of Four Star RVP by November 7, 2010.

The image that you see to the left is what I look at on my cell phone screen every day. It’s easy for me to look at it and disregard it. So that’s why I decided to share this here in this public forum.

This is scary. I am risking humiliation. But I am steadfast in my commitment.

This post isn’t a long one, but I felt the need to put it out there. See you in Anaheim.
