“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
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.
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.
Congratulations! It doesn’t seem possible that you would be retiring as Managing Partner already. I congratulate you on a fabulous career and the difference you have made in the lives of so many people over the years. It is nice to see you continuing to stay active and positively influencing other people with your coaching and management skills.
Not many people can say with humble confidence that they have changed the lives of literally thousands, but you have. It’s a legacy, your legacy of serving others with life changing wisdom. Your impact will continue to grow and shape the lives of so many people. You really will never know exactly how big it is. But there is one thing you must know without a doubt; I’m a better husband, a better father and a better person because of the investment that you have made in me and in our friendship. T…
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!
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?’
Simply put, experiencing John Wright and his leadership and management program at Greyfield is a once in a lifetime experience!

John Wright and the Greyfield experience is for anyone interested in improving the quality of one…
When I was a kid and a teenager, I always wanted to be just like my Dad. He could do it all! He was a great athlete, an accomplished hunter, he was an MDRT qualifier in his first year in the business and every year following, totaling 43 years. He has made Top of the Table the last four out of five years. He could motivate me to take the hill at any moment. He truly follows Christ in his daily life and has served in community organizations giving back for over 30 years. I tell you this because t…
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.
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.
