Raising the Bar

Imagine if we all listened to the inner voice that tells us that we can do great things? What if you could take your negative life experience and turn it into a positive for others? Maybe these actions would impact the world, the community, or change the life of a single person. What if you were chosen to take a risk that seemed too big, ridiculously scary, or incredibly uncomfortable? What would you do with that prompting? Would you ignore it and believe it to be impossible or step up and attack the challenge? Listen to others as they teach us how to apply the proper skills to move forward in action, who accepted that tug on their heart, despite personal gain in some instances, and learn ways you can RAISE THE BAR for yourself and those around you, in order to create positive change and outcome. This show is about empowering ourselves to be our best while developing this belief in others for the common good of people.
