My interest in Highest Human Potential began at an early age, as an athlete. My inspiration to understand potential came from my Olympic teammates, Sandy Neilsen-Bell and Jill Sterkel and the number of others who had achieved the level of National and International swimming competition. The burning question at this point was; what made them so special at such an early age?
-- Was it Genetics, Family Environment, Education, or Privilege of Community?
As I entered the working world, it didn't take me long to recognize that I had been blessed with an uncommon balance of humility and strong professional will. Even today, these virtues remain as recognizable personal traits. So what drove me to successfully lead $6million project by the age of 25. How did I navigate the career path from Manufacturing, to Engineering, to Product Management? to Sales Management?-- Was it Fear of Failure, Just a Stroke of Luck, or Genius of Thought?
And, years later as a Sales Manager, how was I able to move my Sales Team from its’ #87 national ranking to its’ #9 position in less than twelve months. How was it that I had developed 6 of the Top 15 sales people from a national sales force of 1000+.
-- Was it an Abrasive Management Style, Aggressive Sales Techniques or Luck of the Economy?
What universal force, lead my wife and I to move 1100 miles from family. While that same force was leading a 16 year old to move 300 miles from his family and to deliver him to my doorstep in order to full-fill his dream of a college education. You see, my wife and I don’t have any children of our own. So, how was it that we should end up with Senior in High School calling us Mom and Dad?
-- Was it Financial Necessity, a Random Act of Kindness, or Some Sort of Divine Joke?
