You deserve to Laugh, to Dance, to Compete, to Speak, to Sing, to Love, to Live, to WIN...Anyway!

We live in a world where 'Winning' and 'Losing' are the only choices, and it's everybody but us who decides who the winners and losers are.

What if, in your life, in your career, in your relationships, in your business - What if you could...

Win Anyway?

In 1983, my doctors told me that, eventually, I would lose - that the birth defect that they couldn't diagnose would put me in a wheelchair. In 2006, I almost proved them right.

After 38 years of pushing my deteriorating left leg to keep up with its healthy right-footed twin, on both the beaten paths of outside sales and the hardwood of basketball courts, I woke up on a cold January morning, unable to walk.

In the next eight weeks, I was faced with choices I had never expected to have to make. On April 25th, I opted to amputate my lower left leg in favor of a titanium upgrade. 

By agreeing to let go of something I'd worked my lifetime to hold onto, I chose the unknown - the hope of a more active lifestyle - but no guarantee. My battered left foot had become a symbol of my persistence, and letting it go meant letting go of a piece of my identity.

I discovered that sometimes you had to lose to win - to Win Anyway!  Less pain coupled with greater agility and endurance. Sure footing that promised to keep me moving towards my goals as a husband, father of six, and occasional driveway basketball star.

By definition, we can't ALL win by the world's standards. There's only one Superbowl champ, only one CEO, only one Top Salesman, and only one World's Greatest Whatever.

But that doesn't mean we can find joy in our successess, set ourselves up for our own victories, and live a Win Anyway life as WE choose to define it.

You, your employees, your family - deserve to live a life free of the Zero-Sum Game the world tries to convince you defines your life.

Put Rich up in front of your employees, your association members, or your students and he'll share all he's learned in life, in business, in competition among the world's best, and most importantly through his wife and six children to both inspire and entertain you, while providing you with the right strategy to live a Win Anyway Life!
