Who is a Gear Shifter?
People who make changes in the direction, quality, or level of play in
their lives all have certain qualities in common. They are risk takers.
They face fear/doubt head on and push through it. They have a decided
heart about what they want to achieve and are open to learning even out
of their comfort zone. Gear Shifters find ways to overcome obstacles that
may present themselves while they’re in transition, and most importantly,
realize that getting to “that next place” to which they’re
shifting doesn’t happen in a day….it happens daily. They commit
in mind and heart to practicing the activities of shifting every day.

Let’s look at one of history’s biggest gear shifters, not
to mention greatest leaders, Theodore Roosevelt.
Now here’s a guy who was a spindly, sickly little kid, with poor
eyesight and also possessed a great mind. His dad realized that for the
mind to truly achieve all that it can, your body has to help it. So Roosevelt
set about building his body daily and soon became quite an accomplished
boxer. He had a goal, made up his mind and did it…no excuses; nothing
was an obstacle. He also developed his mind and delved into new areas
by reading, talking to others, and testing new skills thereby amassing
an enormous spectrum of knowledge and abilities which he practiced with
successful results throughout his life. The impact for him was that he
is recognized even to this day as our toughest, most accomplished president
in mind and body and our nation was the fortunate recipient of his greatness.
