Peak 5

  1. Do you have mentor, coach or influential person in your life?  First mentor Bill Pearl and his academic advisor, now Ralph Waldo Emerson, Thomas Paine, Buddha.  When the student is ready, the master will appear, you have to be ready for it.  We don’t see things as they are, we see things as we are.  Anything in your life can be a transformation, even the mistakes were doing.Scott-on-mic
  2. What is your favourite book?  What ever book he is reading currently, thats where his focus and invest of time is.
  3. What is your favourite quote?  Real winners forget they are in a race, they just love to run.  If passion drives you, then let reason steer the wheel.  Everything you do is infused with the attitude in how you do it (Attitude is Everything).  A quote should move you, more than move others.
  4. If you could tell your 20 year old self one thing what would it be?   ‘Get over yourself’ and the colossal ego at the time, be more worldly.
  5. If there were no limits what would you contribute to in the world?   Enough, its not about glory, not about impressing others.   Leaving a legacy that can teach and empower others, even through the mistakes we make.
