The Power of the Possible:
Enhancing Personal & Professional Performance
"It can't be done." "You'll never make it in time." "Bob's impossible to work with." "This relationship doesn't have a prayer."
"They must be kidding…"
Realistically sizing up a challenge or defining a set of problems is more art than science. Data, long-term spectrum of consequence,
history, access to resources, immediate impact, and, perhaps, most of all --- individual and collective beliefs --- paint the
picture. In history, the thinnest margins of possibility have expanded into amazing accomplishments; often in the face of overwhelming
doubt, skepticism, and sabotage (covert and overt). The determining factors are human drive, resiliency, determination, spirit, and belief.
High performers collect data, evaluate probabilities, latch onto possibilities, harness trusted resources, trust their gut instincts,
and move forward with a clear picture of success --- independent of consensus judgments. Consider the following popular opinions and
reflect on the power of the possible and the impact of attitude:
"A man on the moon…not in my lifetime!" "Visual images transmitted from miles away into a box in your house…never!" "Mass produce
hamburgers in a national chain of restaurants…it will never work!" "A national newspaper…tried before; can't be done!" An all news
television station…nobody will watch!" "Win the biggest account in the industry…we don't have the horses to do it!" Surpass last
year's sales figures…not likely!" "Balance my life at work, home, and in my community…not this year!"
In this multimedia presentation, Michael provides ready-to-use tools that will enhance both personal and professional performance.
He knows the steps and the ropes. In addition to building a successful organization, he responded to a cancer diagnosis by trekking
across a glacier and climbing two mountain peaks --- they told him his chances of success were slim. In August of 2000, he turned
possibility into reality. In 2001 he trekked across Nepal and climbed 18,000 ft. to the base camp of Mt. Everest. Many questioned
his ability to do it; he had already saw himself there.
