Hi there, Michelle Bosch here. I thought I'd jump on and do a quick video for all of you. I was just last week on a trip out to Chicago to my 10x Ambition Program. Back in April, I had decided to go ahead and invest in myself and enjoying the 10x Ambition Program from Dan Sullivan. I have been part of his signature program now for six years, and I had never quite taken that leap of faith and gone and decide to, you know, to join 10x.
So I did in April, and my first meeting was just last week, but on my way there, and this is what I wanted to share with you today, is I am flying from Phoenix to Chicago with American Airlines, but regardless of the airline, that's not the point. And the trip is fantastic. We are about to land, and then all of a sudden we realize that, you know, the captain aborts the first landing attempt and we hear this incredible, horrible noise that you shouldn't be hearing when you're about to land an airplane.
And so he goes ahead and lifts the airplane back up and we circle around and he attempts a second landing. After attempting a second landing and aborting it as well, he goes ahead and says, he gets on the speakerphone and he says, "We are having actually right now some problems with our landing gear, and we are waiting for ground personnel to go ahead and, you know, prepare for us on the ground for when we land they can meet us at the runway." Needless to say, you know, that's not something you want to hear when you're on an aircraft, that the landing gear is possibly not working or not engaged or not coming out. That is the worst, you know, possible news that you can get. And so that was an incredible reset moment for me.
And that's why I wanted to jump on here and share with you. So you could hear and feel, I would say. You could feel the tension, the panic, the despair, the horror on that aircraft. There was, you could drop a needle and you could hear it. Everyone was completely silent, and it was pretty surreal. And I know for myself, you know, I went through that exact same, you know, feeling of panic, and right after that feeling of panic, you know how people say that before they are about to lose their life in some way, shape or form, they start seeing their life, their past experiences or have like a little run-through, you know, of their lives. And that's exactly what happened for me as well.
I started looking at what I had done, the places that I had travel, the beautiful family that I had created, the amazing company team, the impact that I had done in the world, and all the beautiful people that I had met and touched in some way, shape or another. And in that moment, you know, I felt like grateful. I was like, "Okay. You know, I've had the things that I wanted to have. I've done the things that I wanted to do. I'm at peace if this is my time."
But right after that, you know, there was this sliver, or this glimpse, I would say of faith and hope. And the thought that came into my mind was, you know, "God, I know you've brought me this far and I know you're not gonna let me...you know, you're not gonna leave me alone right now. I know you have a bigger future for me." And so it was an incredible reset point. You are always being tested. When you're about to grow, when you're about to, you know, 10x, or grow two times, three times, any kind of growth, it's almost like as if life will test you.
And for me, that experience, like I said, was an incredible reset. And right now, you know, I am on a mission. We have been on a mission since the weekend, Jack and I, of really creating a framework of how we're gonna live our life from now on. And we've always, always, always been not just about higher income, but about higher purpose. But I think with this past experience right now, plus the meeting the following day, which was incredible, amazing, just the type of people there, the mindsets that were there, it all contributed I think for this resolve right now to really clean up house and start, you know, going for big, bold, audacious things in our lives. And not because we want bigger, or bigger is better, but because we want not just bigger things, but we want to have a bigger and a higher purpose. We want to be living it day in and day out. There is no time for anything else.
We walk this earth almost as if, you know, we are gonna be here forever, but we're not. We're here for a short period of time, and we are here to make the most of it, and that's what we've been doing. And all across our teams, our companies, our coaches, we have presented the following question, and I want to present that to you because as I was being grateful for all the people that have touched my life in those moments of not knowing if the aircraft was going to be able to land or not, most of those people that I went back to that came to my mind are people that have been incredible heroes in my life. And why have they been incredible heroes? Because they embody, they live mindsets of growth, of faith, of people that are just growth-oriented and that believed in me, and that helped me live what I'm living right now, the dream that I'm living right now.
And so this is what we're doing, you know, from now on. We're gonna be only working in our lives with people with such growth mindsets, because like I said, there's no time for anything else. And it's been like a process of clarifying for ourselves who we are, who we truly are, so that we can find ourselves in others. Other people that also want bigger futures for themselves. Also, believe in whole life leadership, also believe in growth in general, and that their futures are going to be bigger than anything that has happened to them in their past. And it's been a beautiful experience in the aftermath right now of, like I said, deciding. And beautiful, and at the same time difficult, because there's people that are not going to be coming along, that are not gonna ride this wave with me, because I know that they don't share the same mindsets that we do. And so for you, you know, the time is now. Are there people in your surroundings that, you know, that are not heroes to you and that you don't want to be a hero to either because they don't share the same mindsets that you do? You know, the same growth, the same sense of leadership that you can lead in your whole life and live life on this earth with purpose, with meaning. Not just about the income, but also about the purpose.
And yeah, I just wanted to share that experience. I will probably, as a result of that same experience and that commitment, you know, that I have right now to being a hero and to finding more heroes and spending more time with these heroes, as a result of that commitment, I will be on probably doing videos of this kind much more often. And I thank you for listening. I hope this has helped you in some way, shape, or form. And until the next one, thank you. Bye-bye.
