Two Champions Left Us a Legacy This Week

Two champions left us a legacy this week

One was a trusted colleague of mine you may be familiar with from earlier this summer, Mike Seddon, who delivered his “Last Webinar” in June.

The other was Yogi Berra, the Hall of Fame baseball player, who had become an American icon in the years after his retirement as a player and manager.

Mike left us way too young, at just 50 years of age, Yogi lived a full life to 90.

Both lived, worked and died with class, dignity and humility.mikeseddonyogiberra

For me, both are role models I work daily to emulate.

Mike Seddon has left us a legacy that will endure in the form of “The Last Webinar,” his “Video Journal Journey,” and his inspiring “Seddon Days” life purpose process.

To honor Mike Seddon I am going to ask you to visit www.SeddonDays.com and explore the website where you can view “The Last Webinar,” if you haven’t already.

You can also view his daily video journal of his journey since July right through last week before his passing on the night of Sept. 15th.

And, you can also learn about how you can incorporate Mike’s life transforming focus process to live a fulfilling life that he and his colleagues have named “Seddon Days.”

It’s a powerful process and I encourage you to explore how you can incorporate it into your life and business.

Like Mike, Yogi Berra also has left a legacy.

Yogi, a Hall of Fame baseball player, was wise beyond his limited education.

He left us a life of verbal philosophies that can be applied to many of life’s challenging and unique situations, such as:

“When you come to a fork in the road, take it!”

Although seen as a nonsense statement offering confusing directions, I take this statement as something we can all use to make decisions in challenging times that tells us to keep moving forward to find our way.

“It’s never over ‘til it’s over.”

This speaks to the fact that there is no clock in baseball and you are never out of a game until that last out is put away.

I see this as the journey to achieving success is never over until we decide to quit and give up on it.

Or, the favorite of both my wife and I, “No one goes there anymore, it’s too crowded.”

One final Yogi Berra quote fits especially well for both Yogi and Mike Seddon at this time in their lives:

“You should go to other people’s funerals, otherwise, they won’t go to yours!”

For Yogi and Mike it doesn’t matter how many funerals they went to, the way they lived, worked, played and passed, will guarantee there will be A LOT of people at their funerals.

They’ll both be missed as their legacy lives on.

Please leave a comment below. Tell me what you think and continue the conversation.

’til next time Communicate With Power!

    I. What should be yearly revenue income against yearly expenditure details

    And few more. For an operating business for around 10 years its a different list though.

    Thanks

    I am sorry to hear of Mike Seddon’s passing; however, thank you for the update. I have attended several of his webinar’s and was saddened that he will no longer be with us. His legacy will definitely continue.
