Squirrel-at-the-feederSquirrels are the bane of my dog’s existence. She certainly loves to chase them, but I don’t think she would know what to do if she actually caught one. Do you feel like you’re ‘chasing squirrels’ or going from one distraction to the next? You may want to read the article below about GMFI on how you can break that pattern.

Global Motivational Force International

It all started with jumping out of an airplane. Back in 1990, Mark Nienow and his buddies were looking for adventure. Someone suggested skydiving. So they took a trip to an area parachute club and spent the weekend learning to skydive. As they took the training, they learned everything that could go wrong with the jump. The jump time approached, Mark stood, filled with fear, at the open door of the plane. No one is making him jump; he could back out at any time. In fact fear gripped him so much that he almost backed out. But when the jump master yelled ‘GET OUT’ for the third and final time, he mustered his courage; and jumped.

The important lesson Mark learned is that everyone needs a little push. That the purpose of the Global Motivational Force International (GMFI). GMFI creates an environment of success by fostering and encouraging personal drive and motivation. Most importantly it surrounds you with others wanting to succeed. So if you want to take your growth to the next level, check out their next meeting on Monday May 18th, 6:00pm at NorthCentral Technical College’s Center for Business and Industry room 110. Speaker will be Paula Houlihan, the Money Alchemist. The first meeting is free and membership is affordable. Details are on the GMFI website. . .
