Dear Jack ~ On Januar 15, 2009, US Airways Flight 1549 piloted by Captain Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger made an unpowered emergency water landing in the Hudson River after multiple bird strikes caused both jet engines to fail.  In an undeniable and remarkable feat of flight, All 155 occupants, including captain and crew, were unarmed and emerged unscathed.

As passengers submerged in the chilly waters began to surface, many of them were interviewed.  One, in particular, caught my attention.  “I was alive before but now I’m really alive,” he exclaimed.

Are you really alive?  Keep the fire in your heart roaring by feeding it the right things.  Get your passion back.  Keep your enthusiasim burning.  Sometimes it takes an event, a life altering event, to give us perspective.  At any moment, in any situation, you can step back and breathe and notice.  Just witness, are you using your braing for creating and serving right now, or are you using it for reacting?

When you shift [up] from reacting to creating, you are now using more of your brain… higher levels of full capacity brain power… imagination, innovation and creativity are now yours to access.  Free your mind and the rest will follow.
