Whats your zipline? - motivation


A few years ago, I was with 20 of America's most effective presenters - The Speakers Roundtable - at the Pecos River Conference Base near Sante Fe, NM. We were effective on our communication skills, not contrasting the work we do in our own Merit in Dialect Institute (ESI) classes.

At Pecos River, a zipline was a part of an outward bound-type challenge for attendees to check their own nerve. Set from a rock at the top of a mesa to a point below, the zipline dared us to ride down property only its wooden handle.

Now, the mesa was about the height of the be an average of 18-story building. Challenging and unnerving? You bet! But we all did it.

The best part was that we cultured more about ourselves and recognized new, delayed individual limitations. It was a benchmark encounter that I bring to mind all but as brilliantly as the day of the plunge.

Cut to our ESI classes, where we have our own account of the zipline challenge: circumscribe and confront any delicate obstacles that are in the way of being your best.

Day Three is a very dramatic one in most all of our Institutes. Attendees leave air they can confront and best their ex- data lines hurdles.

So, what's your zipline? What challenges have you faced and how did you overcome them. You can use these previous successes to push away from preceding restrictions and move down your own zipline.
