Take Wisdom from the Experts and Apply it in Your Life – Part 4
Mike Rayburn and Dan Thurmon were two of the five 2011 inductees into the Professional Speaker Hall of Fame. In the NSA world this is a BIG deal. Mike Rayburn has been called the “world’s funniest guitar virtuoso.” While he is definitely very funny and truly a guitar virtuoso, the way Mike can help you be a more successful FA is by challenging you to seriously consider the question, “what if?” It’s a simple little question that can be very creatively and powerfully applied to your business and your life. Pick up a copy of his book What If? at www.MikeRayburn.com. While you’re there, order one of Mike’s CDs to hear a unique brand of comedy and music that is sure to make you make your day… even on a day when the Dow’s off a few hundred (or thousand) points. What if you really can create your Ideal Life by building an Ideal Business exclusively with Ideal Clients? What if…?
Dan Thurmon has a unique approach to achieving life balance: forget about it! Instead he proposes that you live your life “off balance on purpose.” Every day, we are inundated with messages about the importance of finding “balance” in our lives. How does this make us feel? Overwhelmed, out of touch, and unfulfilled. The problem isn’t us—it’s the message. Perfect balance is unachievable and, upon closer inspection, undesirable. The perpetual quest for balance ends up limiting growth, progress, and the quality of life.
In Off Balance On Purpose, Dan Thurmon frees you from the “balance” dilemma and empowers you to adopt a new approach to creating a happy, fulfilling life: embrace reality, get aligned with your purpose, lean forward, and initiate positive changes. These steps will give you the knowledge, strength, and motivation to:
- Accept and take advantage of the contradictions in your daily life.
- Integrate the five vital areas of life—work, relationships, health, spiritual growth, and personal interests—into a workable, fluid, sustaining pattern.
- Adopt a practical, concrete process for orchestrating changes and staying aligned with your purpose.
