Rotary Last Week

LTC Bill Adams, Center for Advanced Performance, gave our club the formula for “Peak Performance”. It includes many aspects, such as visualization & imagery, goal setting, stress management, confidence in any situation, etc. Focus on your successes. Use everything that happens as a stepping-stone to success. LTC Adams has addressed the club before, and today’s program was as great a learning experience as was his prior visit!  Hopefully we’ll see him here again!
