Personal philosophy tip: In 1991 , I was travelling for business in order to present my usual one day seminar. The evening before the seminar, I got word in the hotel from my dad that my mom passed away! I was very close with my mom. I must have cried for at least an hour. My dilemma was what to do: Fly home to be with my dad or deliver the 8 hour seminar.

I decided that it wasn’t the fault of my participants, and I wasn’t going to short change them. I not only stayed to deliver the seminar, but it was probably the most energized delivery that I have ever rendered, and I am known for energized presentations!

Bottom line: It isn’t our successes that make us stronger. It is how we react to our challenges and failures that determine who we are!
