Bill Dellinger; Lessons From a Legend

Bill Dellinger; Lessons From a Legend

Lessons From a Legend.

I share some great principles from Bill that have pushed me further in business and in life.

My time being coached and mentored by Bill Dellinger at the University of Oregon was magical. The time with Bill remains some of the most influential and impactful times of my life. As an awkward, nervous and shy freshman, Bill protected me but at the same time pushed me to get out of my comfort zone; both on and off of the track.

Bill Dellinger began his legacy at Oregon as an athlete and transitioned into prominent distance running coach during the 1970s and 1980s.

As a student-athlete, Dellinger was a notable star under Bill Bowerman. He was a two-time NCAA winner, three-time All-American and three-time Pacific Coast Conference Champion. After college, Dellinger joined the Air Force but continued his athletic training. He captured two world indoor records, six American-records, and competed in the three Olympics–the 1956 Games in Melbourne, Australia, the 1960 Games in Rome, Italy, and the 1964 Games in Tokyo, Japan. Dellinger won a bronze medal in the 5,000-meters during his final Olympics in Japan.
Dellinger gained national recognition for his stellar U of O Cross Country teams and was labeled “America’s finest distance coach.”

Appropriately, he served as the U.S. Olympic Track and Field team distance coach for the 1984 Olympics. Dellinger also coached several other post-collegiate Olympians, such as Danny Lopez, Nick Rogers and Mary Slaney.

A native of Grants Pass, Oregon, Dellinger spent most of his life in Springfield, Oregon. Arguably one of the most talented distance runners of his time, Dellinger leaves his mark on Oregon as both an athlete and a coach.
Dellinger retired in 1998 and continues to reside in the Eugene hills, less than a quarter mile from Steve Prefontaine’s crash site.

Shawshank + Redemption

Shawshank + Redemption

The Shawshank Redemption actually retells the resurrection of Jesus Christ. After Andy's escape, Red and others look for Andy's dead body just like the disciples went to look for Jesus. As the prison guard said; “Oh my holy god”. ... He might be the only hope in the prison, since he is the only innocent one. The Shawshank Redemption in a way illustrated the power of hope, which serves as the primary theme of the film. Special guest appearances from Will Hunting, Vito Corleone & Forrest Gump.

How Can I Serve You?

How Can I Serve You?

A lesson in ‘how can I serve you’ versus ‘how can I help you’. Far too often we work so hard to create momentum in our business to build success. When success finally comes, we neglect the very things that gave us the momentum that ultimately created the success. It’s OK to look back and see how far you’ve come, but sometimes it’s better to look all the way back to the beginning to remind yourself of what got you where you’re at today. Serve To Give. A great example of this is Andrew Carnegie. The "Andrew Carnegie Dictum" was:
- To spend the first third of one's life getting all the education one can.
- To spend the next third making all the money one can.
- To spend the last third giving it all away for worthwhile causes.

Protected, Directed & Corrected.

My iPhone battery was in the red at 7% which opened me up to a beautiful conversation with a stranger.

This is an episode that took me back to one of my favorite speeches - or, mini-sermons - of all time.

If you’ve never heard Denzel Washington’s 2015 commencement speech at Dillard University, you are here for a lift-up. If you have, you are here for a tune-up!

Washington, a devout Christian, considered attending seminary school to become a preacher. "A part of me still says, 'Maybe, Denzel, you're supposed to preach. Maybe you're still compromising. I've had an opportunity to play great men and, through their words, to preach. I take what talent I've been given seriously, and I want to use it for good."

“Put God first in everything you do. Everything that you think you see in me. Everything that I’ve accomplished, everything that you think I have – and I have a few things. Everything that I have is by the grace of God. Understand that. It’s a gift.”

Denzel Washington is an American actor, director, and producer. He has received three Golden Globe awards, one Tony Award, and two Academy Awards.

Perseverance of Faith

Perseverance of Faith

This is a special episode as I share it my good friend Rob Commodari. This is taken from an episode of Rob Commodari's podcast; CHISELED. 

On this episode I discuss being accused of a crime I didn't commit and how I went through that storm with the love and support of my family. Leaning on our faith, we had to ultimately put that faith to the test. I was ultimately cleared of the initial charges but it was through this storm that our family entered the real estate business. I share a some incredible stories of intervention - both human and spiritual. Additionally, I share some insights in to my upcoming book, The Long Run and our new foundation which Heidi is spearheading, Heart & Soul Shoes. Thank you for being a part of this journey!
