I met a grandmother once on a flight. She was flying back from a gambling trip in Reno with her sister. During the flight, after talking a little about our lives, I gave her a copy of my book Quitter. After she had been reading it for an hour, she leaned and asked me a question I wasn’t ready for.
There was sadness in her words. A sense of fear and resignation that seemed to suck all the joy out of a boisterous weekend trip. Sadder still, I didn’t have an answer for her. I didn’t know the answer, but I knew there was one.
I didn’t want you or me to get to 80 or 90 years old and realize we mortgaged the best years of our lives doing something we weren’t called to do. I didn’t want to look back on life and wonder where it all went.
So like most challenges in my life I started to research and write about this issue. What I found surprised me.
It turns out, that the opportunity and speed with which you can reach awesome has never been greater. Three forces of nature have collided to create a once-in-a-century storm even bigger than the one Patrick Swayze surfed at the end of Point Break.
At Start Night, on February 7, we’ll explore those three factors and discover the five stages every awesome life goes through. We’ll look at what it takes to punch fear in the face, escape average and do work that matters.
Plus, everyone who is there will get a free copy of my new book two months before it’s available to the public!
And we’ll do all of this in a magical theater built in 1937 in downtown, Franklin, TN.
The space for Start Night is beautiful but it is small. (It’s half the size of Quitter!)
The last two Quitter Conferences sold out and this brand new event will too.
If you want to escape average, make sure you don’t miss this once in a lifetime event.
