Today was a pretty jam packed day. Saturday always is and there is usually at least a speaker or two that people can relate to. That’s the great thing about this conference, there is always someone that you’ll relate to or something that you’ll get out of. You’ve got people like Greg & Laurie Duncan, Samir & Theresa Attalah, David & Debbie Shores, Tracey & Kimberly Eaton, Bob & Shelly Kummer, Dave & Jan Severn, Ron & Georgia Lee Puryear, and last but not least Brad and Julie Duncan. In between all hose Diamonds, Double Diamonds and Crowns you’ve got Double Eagle Rubies speaking too.
There was pin crossings so we got to stand up as 1000 pins, however we’ve already surpassed that pin (this pin crossing is from the last Spring Leadership). Then Canada just rocked it with a ton of Platinum, Platinum Plus and Platinum Elite’s crossing stage. Some people say there is no growth in World Wide? I think if you were actually in World Wide you’d know there is a huge wave of growth happening right now. Not an explosion yet, but it’s coming. You want to see new Diamonds soon? Mike and Brandie Wagner will soon be new diamonds, just wait and see. There are at least a handful of new Diamonds that will break in the next few years. It’s going to be pretty awesome.
Canada represented well today and really “owned” the pin crossings, so much in fact that Tracey Eaton had to say are there any Americans here? Laying down the healthy competition gauntlet so our friends south of the boarder
John Maxwell talked again tonight and continued on his Connection series. Just more great teaching from an amazing leader. The way John delivers his message with humor, heart, hope and help is amazing. He really captivates the audience and allows his teaching to sink in.
I’ll be honest about some things today. I did not relate to everyone and in some instances I left the room and went to talk to the XS guys or some of the other vendors that showed up. Specifically some of the Double Eagle Rubies that have really been there for many years without movement. Even though I know we will move on and past that, I don’t want subconscious thoughts that camping out at Double Eagle Ruby is okay or whatever. Don’t get me wrong that may be okay for them, they may have some goals I don’t know about or some life challenges that may stall them, I just choose not to listen and take that in. That’s perfectly okay. Nobody said you HAVE to sit there all day and listen to everyone speak. There is a ton of flexibility with these functions which I love.
Anyway it was a very long day and I’m back in the hotel room. There is a night owl going on for our team but i’m hacking up a lung trying to fight off a cold that is getting worse so I’m missing out. I know my wife will represent “The Guthrie’s” well as I think our upline wanted us to talk about our vision. I cannot wait to hear what she talks about. We are still working on what our vision is going to be however we do have some great fundamentals for how we want to move our life forward and how we want to impact people. Once we do solidify that vision I’ll be sure to make a posting.
P.S. The new XS Classic flavour is pretty good. Tastes JUST like Red Bull. Perfect for the people that actually say they “like” the taste of Red Bull.. *cough* yeah right.
