And so it begins…
Project Brainstorming Session, as colleagues, during a Leadership Program Retreat: Thom laying on the floor with a high fever while Lucetta beside him, tries to convince him to drink water; which he can’t stand.
She hands him a water bottle,”Thom, we only have one hour to create a three-hour seminar.”
Weakly he sips and responds, “a three-hour seminar is not long enough for people to really change their lives.”
“Ok then, what about three days? We could affect some transformation in a three-day retreat.”
Coming back to life, Thom sits up, “on a cruise ship.”
“What!? You’re delirious! We can’t create, market, and deliver a cruise in the 8 weeks we’ve been given, that’s insane!”
“If we’re gonna ask our participants to play big, we can’t play small. We’ve got to walk our talk. Whoa, I have to lay back down, this is making my head spin.”
“Oh yeah, well we also can’t ask them to make big changes and then leave them out there on their own. We need to support them through integrating those changes for at least six weeks.”
“Now who’s delirious Lucetta?!
“Seriously, we have to do this. So many people are living a life that’s not the one they want, they’re faking it, and it doesn’t have to be that way.”
“Yeah, and that’s f*cked up.”
“Thom, we can’t say that!”
“Yeah, truth is, it’s FAKED up!”
Lucetta raised six children and lived to tell about it! Then, after an unexpected turn of events in her life she had the freedom to create a completely new one. So, Lucetta put everything she owned in a storage locker and traveled by herself around the world for a year, in developing countries. She is now a professional life coach, speaker, writer, and the founder of Your Life In Bold, LLC.
