Why can’t I get ahead?

Have you noticed that it’s always the people who are already at the top of the success ladder who attend the most trainings? Why do they do it?

Top achievers know the value of investing in themselves to create the life they truly want. They know the value of continued study, and of preparation. Perhaps most importantly, they know the value of spending time with other HIGH ACHIEVERS.  At last week’s Innovate Conference we had  artists, musicians, authors and speakers who came with the anticipation they would see their creative talents explode into meaningful reality.   With speakers like Michael HyattLee LentzDorsey McHugh, Joanne Miller and Chad Jeffers the attendees were challenged, encouraged and shown the way – with passion, humor and a real action plans.  Our goal is to see that call to personal excellence expressed in lives that make the world a more exciting and meaningful place.   And I’m sure by now you’ve heard about our version of Shark Tank – with Sharks Chuck Bowen, Pierce MarrsDeg Ingino and Dan Miller, complete with our own Shark Tank Intro Video.  We made our decisions about which ideas to “invest” in and had a ton of fun in the process.

The people who carved out the time and investment to be here know the value of persistence, determination, self-discipline and taking action for opening doors of new opportunity. That’s why top achievers continue to rub shoulders with other masters of excellence.

Here’s a brief testimonial from Terry Hadaway, PhD. from Birmingham, AL. 

“Dan, you know my background and education. After four degrees and eleven years in higher education, I can honestly say that the best educational experience I’ve ever had was last week’s Innovate Conference at your place. We were so inspired to embrace our uniqueness and, at the same time, given an economic model that has been proven. The connections we made with other creative people are priceless!

Until we connect what we know with what others need to know we are doing nothing more than building our egos and shrinking our audiences. That’s why so many well-educated people have no one to talk to.

Thanks for giving us recovering academicians a place to discover our right brains and forge ahead doing work that matters.”

We have one more Innovate Conference scheduled for this year – September 5-6th.   This one sold out weeks in advance and it sounds like this remaining one may be full months in advance.  I have been attending conferences, seminars and workshops since I was in high school.  I recognized the value of these intense presentations that surpass the slow pace of the classroom.  While I too have plenty of academic degrees, I place a high value on what I’ve learned in the University of Life.

What events are you attending in 2013 to accelerate your success?
