And perfect timing, because…
We. Did. It.
Last night my breath was taken away. Multiple times.
I stood on a small red stage at Samovar Tea Lounge and looked into a sea of just over 100 Living Legends. The room was at capacity and 39 more were on the wait list.
But that was just the beginning.
Within 20 hours of that moment, the same thing was happening in 48 countries around the globe in just under 150 cities with thousands of attendees – In the real world.
All coming together for one reason: To hold each other accountable to making a difference in 2014, and doing work that makes us come alive.
Last night I sat on my couch at about midnight with a glass of champagne and some dark chocolate just watching the feeds come through on Facebook and Twitter. Pictures, videos and updates from Chiang Mai, Manila, Kuala Lumpur, Sydney, Aukland, Tasmania, Portland, New York, Atlanta, Finland, Latvia, Nigeria and Kenya kept rolling in (to name a few).
Yesterday there were no borders. No cultural differences.
Just people coming together to connect on a common belief. That we’re all meant to do work that matters – to us and to the world.
And it was absolutely breathtaking.
It’s impossible to pick a favorite picture, but this one from Ben in Kenya just got posted and brought me a huge smile…
Everyone left the event with one action item: To do one thing to get them closer to doing work they love and making their impact on the world in 2014.
So today seems like the perfect day to release our newly updated Goal Setting & Action Workbook!
We release a new version at the beginning of every year and this continues to be the #1 downloaded item at LYL year over year. Tens of thousands of people have used it in the past 12 months to bridge the gap between dreams and reality.
We make it totally free to all of you because we believe it’s the right thing to do (And because I love you guys so damn much).
There’s no opt-in or email required. Just a link you get to click to download.
All I ask in return is that you share this with your friends on Facebook and Twitter and pick at least one close friend to help by emailing it to them directly. No need to show me proof that you shared it. I trust you guys :).
This is the exact goal-setting process I use every year.
I’ll be spending the next two days in front of a whiteboard going through every step.
Then in the next few weeks I’ll share my plans publicly on Live Your Legend and I hope you’ll do the same.
Thank you all for being a part of this Revolution.
After yesterday I truly believe we’ve earned that title.
What’s been set into motion cannot be stopped. Not by me nor anyone else. That’s an unbelievable thing.
And the best part is that yesterday was only day one. These will be happening all over the world on the first Tuesday of every month for as long as the eye can see.
Here’s to being the change and to all of us getting to proudly say “We Were Here.” Or more appropriately, “We ARE Here.”
P.S. If you attended or hosted an event, please post a picture and comment on our main LYL Facebook Group as well as your city’s Facebook Group. And also I’d love for you to send out a Tweet with hashtag #LYLLocal and linking to liveyourlegendlocal.com. Here’s a sample. Let’s share this party with the world! Thank you lots.
P.P.S. And if you couldn’t attend yesterday, have no fear! Our next global meetup is less than four weeks away :).
We’ll also do a full event recap post once we’ve gotten all the videos, pictures and stories together. That could take a little while though…
For now, get to work on the Goal Setting & Action Workbook so you can share your plans with us in next week’s post!
