A Year of Change

What if 2020 happened for us, not to us.

What did we all ask for before COVID-19?


Time to be with our loved ones. Time to reflect, read a book, do a puzzle. Well, we got that, unfortunately at a terrible cost.

COVID-19 made us look at everything through a different lens. 

A majority of our country has been home for the past 3-4 months.

Then, the killing of George Floyd slapped us in the face (and hopefully woke us up, even if so much later than we should have been). It sparked a renewed movement that has extended well beyond the US borders. 

Social media is elevating stories and situations at a level we have never experienced, all at a time when we were already home reflecting.

This begs the question: Are we going to hope for a return to “normal” — a normal that wasn’t working for so many, or are we going to fight for a better normal—for ourselves and for society?

Will we look back five or ten years from now and realize this was the year everything shifted?

What if 2020 is the time you were called to take action, to make changes, to make different decisions—for yourself and for your family. 

This coming weekend is July 4th…and many of us will yet again, have some additional TIME.  Whether you’re sitting on the beach or having coffee on your back deck, I encourage you to reevaluate the beliefs and habits that don’t serve you well.  I encourage you to reconsider if your beliefs and habits serve others well. 

I believe we are all being asked to BECOME BETTER!

  • Are you going to look back years from now and say this was the year I took massive action?
  • This was the year I transformed myself and my business—and how I interact in the world?  

Right here, right now is the time! You must do whatever you can to take yourself, your family, your business, and our community to another level.

When I look back, I realize that the biggest shifts in my life happened when my back was against the wall. When I knew the only way forward was to make changes. I wrote about those changes in my first book, There Must Be A Better Way. 

We all have moments when, in spite of our best efforts, things don’t go the way we want. You can complain about it, you can wait for things to get better, or you can get up off your butt and start doing something about it.

Regardless of where you are, what you’ve done, or what you have failed to do—today is a new day. You have an opportunity—right now—to refocus, recommit, and reinvent your future.

Ask yourself during the 4th of July break: HOW CAN I BECOME BETTER?

There is still a huge opportunity to make 2020 the year everything changed—for the better!
