Extra Points – Enhancing Strength

This week’s focus point…Enhancing Strength14_02_DanCapJackRetouch_001

I recently had the chance to talk with a high school buddy who’s been battling Stage 4 melanoma. He is in the final stages of a grueling battle and we hope to hear positive news in a couple of weeks that it’s finally gone. He shared with me how the treatment has progressed and I learned something new.

He said that chemotherapy is not the preferred method any longer in fighting cancer. The “old school” chemo was about destroying the cancerous cells by blasting them into oblivion. The side effects on the person was brutal. He told me that today, doctors opt for Immunotherapy. Immunotherapy is a treatment that uses the body’s own immune system to fight the cancer. Basically, it’s maximizing your own body’s strengths to most effectively win a battle and be successful.

Many of you are using the old chemotherapy route rather than Immunotherapy when trying to improve yourself professionally or personally. You identify where you are “weak” and try to improve those weaknesses. Rather, you should use the strengths you already have inside of you (e.g. Immune System) and work on enhancing those for better results. You can’t be perfect in everything. Identify your strengths and what has made you successful, and then blast those with even more professional and skill development. Just as doctors have discovered a better way to fight cancer by boosting an immune system, you can find a faster and more effective way to boost your business and career (and enrich your life) by augmenting your own abilities.

Welcome to the most powerful and dynamic program I’ve ever created for business owners and executive leaders on unleashing your vast potential and maximizing your own unique talent and that of those around you.

My concept of the “open gate” is that unlike dogs, we as humans often tether ourselves inside our own personal gates and due to our own self-imposed limitations and fears, choose not to risk going through the open gate in front of us. The results include dissatisfaction, low self-esteem, poor leadership, bad morale, inefficiencies, and boredom. Bottom line is you and your business leave money and talent on the table.

    Excellent, Dan – I am always impressed when you take a situation and apply it to another situation. It is “out of the box,” but it is also 100% relevant!

    Thanks for sharing the wisdom that you have developed –
