As leaders we must keep things in perspective. A recent Facebook post by my daughter rocked my perspective of one thing we take for granted. BREATHING. Take a breath and think about your perspective… on leadership, life, health and even breathing.
Be extraordinary, unrestrained, and bold; go to the horizon of what you can see today and you will see more.
We succeed at our dreams not because we are successful in each opportunity, but because we get up off the ground, pay another entry fee, and pursue the next bodacious opportunity.

While Hope is Not a Strategy a Strategy Must Have Hope
This year my family found ourselves faced with what seemed to be a hopeless situation Kenzie and Kassie. Our beautiful little granddaughter, Kenzie was diagnosed with Rett Syndrome a rare genetic disorder that affects one in ten thousand little girls. Kenzie developed normally until about 10 months when we noticed something was going on, she stopped playing with toys, did not make eye contact, the use of her hands diminished and she stopped trying to crawl. After months of doctors’ visits and specialists Kenzie was diagnosed with Rett Syndrome and currently there is no cure. We felt hopeless and crushed.
There is hope for a cure for Rett Syndrome that affects Kenzie and thousands of girls. Donate any amount to research and I will send you a complimentary copy of my book Be Bodacious: Put Life in Your Leadership. The research is promising; your donation large of small will help find a cure.
