“To change your life, you have to change the way you think. Behind everything you do, is a thought. Every behavior is motivated by a belief. Every action is promoted by an attitude. Be careful of how you think. Your life is directed by your thoughts!”
- John Wright
Thank you again for your incredible generosity prior to the NCAA championship. Obviously, your words of wisdom and tremendous hospitality set the tone for a great championship run.
I finally had a chance to read the article on your life skills camps at Greyfield. What an article and what a great testimony to you! I think it goes without saying that people like you are making a huge difference in other people’s lives on a daily basis. It is an absolute honor and privilege for me to count you and your son amongst two of my very favorite people in the world.
If you were to Google the word “success,” you would find approximately 465,000,000 results. To explore them all, it would take 442 years, assuming you could read one every 30 seconds. This begs the question… “Where does one begin?” I have been in business for almost 20 years. I have been fortunate to have worked with some of the most affluent and talented professionals in the country. I have listened to the most inspirational motivational speakers and performance psychologists. I have studied wi…
Congratulations on being one of the greatest leaders of our time. Although I have only met you a couple of times, you have made a big impact on me for several years, as I have listened to you speak (and on the recorded CD’s, over and over and over.) Perhaps that’s a sign of your impact – you are touching the lives of people you don’t even know. WOW! You and your son are two men to whom I owe a lot. You have given me the courage to grow and to tackle my fears. You two have truly blessed me. I pra…
I recently read with a great deal of interest the article in the News Gazette about your life skills work with the Chicago Bears rookies. It sounds like your program has been very successful. You obviously made quite an impression on those young men.
I came away from Rotary today with a spring to my step and regretted that I had been out of town at the time of your first two presentations. As I drove back to “my little office” I was talking to myself and had those familiar feelings of being turned on. It’s been almost ten years since I retired, but I well remember one of the reasons for my success. I think it all boils down to the question of ‘Who motivates the motivator?’
First and foremost is to thank you both for one of the “Top Ten” experiences of my 25 year career with Northwestern Mutual. The food, the fun the coaching – all exceptional.
Simply put, experiencing John Wright and his leadership and management program at Greyfield is a once in a lifetime experience! In addition to being able to experience the character, quality, integrity, ethics, values and energy of a man like John, the merging of both physical and mental activities will ensure that anyone attending one of his programs will come back a different and better person! John Wright and the Greyfield experience is for anyone interested in improving the quality of one…
“Last night at cocktail hour and over dinner it became clear how big an impact you made on the team yesterday. The group was electrified by your message and the delivery. You truly had everyone “shocked and awed.” A ton of ideas were being thrown around about how to execute on the concepts you shared. My focus now is on reinforcement which won’t be too hard, considering I absolutely believe the information, specifically around the Power of Full Engagement, is fundamental to high performance.”
It was a pleasure to meet you in New York city. I truly enjoyed meeting you and listening to your ideas during your visit with our agency yesterday. Thank you for not letting me throw the knife. My ego was saying yes. I’m glad you said no!
