Last week I was invited to the Dinner of Champions horning the Dunn family. The Dunns are known throughout the community as a family who has given their time, money and dedication to the MS Society. Luckily I was able to attend the event and heard an amazing speaker, Dr. Jack H. Llewellyn, Ph.D.
Dr. Llewellyn has worked with some talented athletic personalities including Tom Glavin, John Smoltz and Bobby Cox. His program not only helps athletes with their game, he also targets their mental edge, while showing them how to overcome adversity head-on. As you may or may not know, Dr. Llewellyn is also an author and wrote a gem of a book called “Winning Sure Beats Losing & Here’s What You Can Do About It“.
What is also remarkable about Dr. Llewellyn is he has a daily challenge of his own. He has MS, but don’t let that fool you, he’s a real fighter! I was amazed at his energy and zest for life. Even though his body was aching, he was pacing on the stage, energetic with his speech and somehow grabbed the audience’s attention the second he stepped up to the microphone. He’s an inspiration and really made me think about my passion for life.
I wonder, how often do we as give up before we even make an effort to try? As a small business owner myself, I find it easy to get discouraged, but as I continue reading his book, I am discovering the power of a positive attitude and adding a mental edge to the way I take on my projects.
This book is packed full of outstanding ways to strengthen your focus, challenge your fears and thrive on stress. Yes, I said thrive on stress! If you have a business or you are an employee of a business or if you just want to learn how to use your mind to get ahead, this book is a must read!
Take the challenge!
