The words of American poet Robert Frost have touched millions of people and they ring as true today as the day they were written.
“But I have promises to keep
And miles to go before I sleep.”
American Poet — Robert Frost
The promises we keep generate power. They are reflected in the pictures we have in our minds of the struggles and the triumphs no matter how many miles we had to go.
I’ve discovered that lasting relationships are built on a foundation of promises kept and never giving up.
In the business world, people who rise to the top in their field know both the power and the value in keeping their promise. When they make a promise, their resolve is unshakeable. I’ve learned what it means to go the distance in keeping a promise – a very big promise.
Listen, I can’t tell you that our journey together is going to be easy. In fact, it’s going to feel a bit difficult at times. But I can assure you the challenge is going to be worthwhile.
Let’s discover the Ordinary Hero in you. Do you still have promises pending? Promises to business associates, to those you love and most important – promises to yourself.
Let’s get those promises back on the road to completion. Let’s find the key to developing the pictures you want to have in your mind.
