Written by the bestselling author of 212° the extra degree® and Smile & Move® (Sam Parker), Cross The Line is a booklet and message that's encouraging thousands of people, companies, and organizations to make a commitment to better results.
It begins with the premise that ... "With everything, there's a line. On one side of the line is a greater chance to make good things happen (better results, better relationships, more opportunities). On the other side, there's less of a chance. And with each line you have a choice. You want to cross the line or you don't. You want the better chance at making good things happen (meaningful things) or you settle with the lesser chance. Your choice." Inside, it outlines the 3 common challenges to Crossing The Line (real obstacles, other people, themselves) and the 4 ways to overcome those challenges (choose to commit, work hard, focus, be resilient).
Use it as a tool to inspire your team (learn more here) or make it something personal and enjoy the booklet on your own (a 5-minute read).
