Which do you think is better:  Living in a world of scarcity where we all fight over a shrinking pie or growing the pie and giving everyone a chance to enjoy?  My thinking has been stretched since we last met by getting to work in Abu Dhabi and St. Louis.  Pointed thoughts from Coach today beginning right after weather and sports.

Little self-centered bubbles,  oblivious to those around us.  So wrapped up in our self-importance that we fail to realize the impact we have on other people.

Great song by Dylan to bring us into today’s STARPOWER coaching session on a most important subject…You gotta serve somebody.  Ray, I’m not feeling the upbeat vibe today, but it’s a good thing I can choose not to serve negative feelings.  As Coach, my job is not political/social commentary, however, I must be sensitive to what’s happening.  My job is to inspire and help keep our minds at peak effectiveness to live our best possible lives.

So glad you are with us this morning as we embark on another journey guided by our STARPOWER model that integrates Attitude, Appearance, Abilities, Associations and Accountability; 5-points designed to get us into Action.  Today we launch into a most important discussion, with some actionable tips, inspired by a meeting I was in this week.  What impressed me was the hopefulness with which each person shared.  They each talked about the measures they were taking to ensure healthy practices for their business and customers.    It was a very positive time.  And that’s where I want to begin…Hopefulness.

Why are we the only species on the planet that need laws to keep each other safe?  We had to pass the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA) due to the lack of workplace safety…and here we go again with the same issues in the public domain.  Why should taking care of one’s own body be such a struggle and what does it mean for the future we are creating?  Our purpose today is to appreciate that Murphy will be with us as we birth a new normal, and to quickly embrace our new life.  Time to focus…STARPOWER starts now.  Today's Handout click here.

STARPOWER coaching is here again, guided by our 5-point model designed to get us into Action and thrive in these uncertain times.

As we went through the week I noticed that people are suffering from the Covid Crush…too much death, too much stress, too much uncertainty; people are ending up sullen and ill-tempered…and it is negatively impacting the top “A” of our STARPOWER model…Attitude and Aspirations.  What if I told you there is one thing you can do right now, this very moment, that will give you / your brain the same happy stimulation of 2000 chocolate bars or $25, 000…interested?

Gather round this morning for a most important STARPOWER coaching session.  Get your donut (bogo from Lukes in Avon), go to MyValueTree.com and print-off today’s handout.  As you look at the people you know, what’s your sense about how they are doing?  How are you doing?  Kids, kash, kovid starting to drive you nuts?  My data points would suggest that people are starting to wear thin…one case, even raw.  Some are stressed, confused and depressed.  What if I told you there is a way out, a way to build some resilience through these times…interested?

“Perception is key to resilience,” was the opening statement from the last time we were together.  Back then, our world was an unsettled place…teacher’s strikes, shootings at YouTube, the FL High School, and TN Waffle house, assault rifle ban, troops to the border and E.Coli in romaine lettuce.  Tainted lettuce…seems quaint by today’s standards.  People were feeling besieged and we worked on the power of bouncing back.  Today we focus on coming to terms with our new reality.  Stand by, Saturday morning STARPOWER Coaching begins shortly.
