November Membership Meeting

Highlights from our Speaker Matt Jones,
The 8 Continent Marathon Man

Life’s a Marathon: How to Overcome Adversity and Achieve Greater Victory

What does it mean to live the good life? What does it mean to be truly happy? Matt shared a great message regarding choosing happiness. Matt was diagnosed with cancer at the age of 25 and was given minimal chances of survival. He went on to beat cancer three times and survived a bone marrow transplant and many other obstacles by focusing on 3 simple choices.

1. Visualize your victory. Circumstances + perception = Reality

2. Take action. Skill + Effort = Achievement

3. Elevate your attitude. Feelings you feel + The thoughts you think + Words you speak = Determine the life you live

Motivational Quotes:

  • All you have is a moment, part of being happy is being in the moment.
  •  A mentor’s hindsight can be your foresight.
  • “It is better to be kind than it is to be right.” What will people we come across from day to day remember about us?
  • Up to 80% of the average persons thoughts are negative.
  • Too blessed to be stressed.
  • Too grateful to be hateful.
  • Your ego is not your amigo.
  • Love the good, don’t hate the bad.
  • Set an intention and make it your attention.

Every single day has 86,400 seconds and at the end of the day they are gone forever. How will you spend those seconds? Where you place your focus is where you will end up.

Victory Matrix – the four things that matter to people:
1. Family
2. Health
3. Money
4. Time

Make the choice to serve, to use your unique talents and gifts to make the world a better place.
