In everyone's life, there are defining moments. Those are the moments where you make a pivotal decision that forever changed your life. For me, one of the defining events of my life was kayaking the Grand Canyon. But the defining moment came on the second day when I was sitting on the side of the river in my kayak, scared to death, and I made a decision to paddle back out into the current. Because if I hadn't paddled back out at that point, I knew that I would not continue down the Grand Canyon.
As you wish.
This week I'm gonna give you three tips on how to take action in your defining moments. Make sure you stick around to the end, because this week is the 30th anniversary of Princess Bride, so I'm gonna have a bonus tip that is inspired by the movie The Princess Bride.
You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

True, but that's hardly common knowledge, is it? Thank you.
Tip number one is to imagine it. So, you want to actually see yourself completing each of the steps in the task you're trying to do. And you want to see yourself successfully accomplishing that thing. In your mind, you want to picture exactly what it's like to have that positive outcome that you're after.
Woo hoo hoo, look who knows so much, huh.
Tip number two is to feel it. It's not enough just to imagine a positive outcome, you have to actually feel what it's like to achieve that positive outcome. For me, what I'll do is I'll sit there and I'll imagine it in my mind with my eyes closed until I feel that big grin on my face then I know I'm in that moment and I have achieved my goal.
Truly, you have a dizzying intellect.
Wait till I get going.
Tip number three is to define it. In the movie Tin Cup, Kevin Costner's character says, "When a defining moment comes along, you define the moment or the moment defines you." This is your moment, so you have to make the decision, take action, and define that moment and get the outcome you want.
Have fun storming the castle.
Think it'll work?
It would take a miracle.
This week's bonus is to have fun. Life is short but sweet, so you might as well cherish every moment. If you're facing impossible odds, you might as well have fun, face them with a big smile on your face, and go out there and define your life.
