Fun, Fit and Fabulous Conference

When I was asked to speak at Highmark Blue Cross  & Blue Shield’s annual conference recently, I pondered which topic would be most meaningful to the 200+ attendees.

I settled on “Are You Living Life Fully – Or Just Going Through the M-O-T-I-O-N-S?”

M – More

In today’s society it seems we’re always searching for more – to achieve more, to have more, to do more.  It’s as if we’re “striving, but not arriving.”

O –  Other People’s Opinions

How many of us live our lives according to what other people think – and how they want us to live our lives?

T –  Tapes

Do you keep running those old tapes in your mind?  You know – the ones that criticize you and try their best to convince you that you’re not good enough.  Or that you’ll never be able to achieve your goals.

I – Impossible

“It’s no use.  I’ll never be able to change.”  Sound familiar?

O –  Old Behaviors

“Why can’t I get past these old patterns?  I keep repeating the same mistakes over and over.”

N – Negativity

70% of what we hear out in the world is negative.  It’s no wonder that we need to overcompensate – just to get back to neutral!

S – Someday Isle

If you find yourself wistfully repeating “Someday I’ll, “ you’re likely ignoring your life’s passion – and putting off the things that make your heart sing,   Don’t get stuck in the land of Someday Isle.
