Lost in the Land of “As Soon As”
Have you ever been lost?
Daniel Boone was once asked if he had ever been lost: He answered; “No,
I have been confused for a couple of days – But never Lost!”
I was raised in a household that was stuck in the land of “As Soon As”
They were and are still stuck there.
Let explain: The Land of AS Soon AS

Can you draw a map with a trail marked to follow?
Change – Change comes slowly. Either good or bad. To change your life
you have to change your mind and to change your mind you must become
a lifelong learner. The decision is yours.
Action – You will never get anywhere until that first step is taken.
You must; “Get UP – Look UP – Link UP”
Compass – Mentor / Coach
Direction – True north / Values
Vision – Begin with the end in mind
Change – If you want to change your life / you have to change your mind
Only you can decide to leave the Land of AS SOON AS and move to the land of Possible.
