How to use a crayon
I keep daydreaming a scene I’d like to put in a book or movie.
A mad man (me? Why not?) lives in a mental ward. (Me? It fits.) Each day they let this man into the recreation room.
He’s in his pajamas. He sits down at the circular table.
The attendant gives him a big blank pad of paper and a box of crayons.
He takes out the crayons and draws the head of a monster. He stares at the monster, screams, and runs out of the room.
The whole thing looks funny to the attendant. It looks, shall we say it…."Insane."
The poor mad man is scaring himself to death!
And crazy as that looks, we ourselves do that each day. We use our crayons (our imagination) to scare ourselves with.
We draw worst case scenarios in our heads all day. Until we don't anymore.

. . .Some of the better professional football players report that when they've got their best game going they can no longer hear the crowd.
They play in an eerie silence, and the ball and other players seem to be flowing in a ghostly slow motion.
The game slows down and gets quiet, and inside of that the players in that zone speed up and make the greatest plays of their lives.
That's the spirit.
That's like doing your career's work from the spirit. When you connect to that spirit the game of life slows down and you find your own greatness.
. . .You will find from personal experience that when you're selling from the spirit you're not "selling" at all.
You're flying. And serving. And connecting. Just like you always dreamed you could.

So what kind of circus act is this coming up?
Who will be flying?
I know my friend Rich Litvin will. I know that from experience.
So now there's this: LONDON CALLING.........those of you who are coaches and want a two-day experience of me and Rich Litvin tag-teaming and harmonizing the LIVE Cirque de Prospe stage version of The Prosperous Coach come to London, England, July 19 and 20.
. . . . We will theatrically examine and solve this (and many other) Sherlockian puzzles: Why would someone good at coaching NOT be financially independent?
