I recently had the opportunity to meet a high school hero of mine. Sylvester Stallone!

It seemed like every Friday afternoon, before our football game, several of us guys would gather at Glenn’s house to watch Rocky and get psyched up for the game. To have a chance to meet him and hear what he had to share with us about making the movies he made and fighting for his vision of these stories to make it to the big screen... Well, it was simply amazing.

I didn’t know much about him, his business knowledge or his drive for success. I thought “Rocky” was an act, a character he played. What I experienced was Stallone was just being himself, as Rocky, as a fighter.

The night before, I had the opportunity to listen in on a conversation with Al Pacino who was being interviewed on his experiences, failures and successes in life and business. Like Stallone, I wasn’t sure what he would have to say about business but hey, It’s The Godfather, so pay attention!

Although Pacino and Stallone had GREAT content what made the biggest impact was what JT Foxx demonstrated. JT not only had a way of making them feel at home, appreciated and pulling good content out, he opened up the opportunity for several members of the audience to interview each of these super stars as well. Even though there was a cost involved, I have never seen a host share the stage with others in order to help them improve their brand.

So here’s my take away from this event.

Who’s In Your Corner?

Whom do you associate with? Who speaks to you in the corner when you are down or when you are on top?

You can’t fight every fight all on your own. You need a trainer to improve your skill sets. You need your own management to give good council for your systems and processes. You must have a coach or mentor to bring their years of experience to the locker room during practice and especially at Game Time.

If you think you can build your dream on your own, your Dream Isn’t Big Enough! Dream, Act and Do the big things with the life you have.

If you don’t have a coach or mentor yet I’ll be sharing this post with several of my coaching and mentoring groups for them to join in this conversation. Contact and engage with them.

So... Who’s in your corner?

Lets just take out the "try" shall we and do something beyond what we have already mastered? We will grow.

Couldn't agree more.  Disruption can be painful but necessary.  Plus it's the only way to really get out of a rut.
