Who is Ralph Simone? Well, I'm not really sure yet – but most of the time I see myself as someone who is on a journey of learning how to “slow down to go faster.”
I am someone who enjoys life, most of the time, or at least when I allow things to unfold at their own pace and speed. I enjoy learning and probably more than I am willing to admit, I enjoy questioning things – beliefs, ideas, and practices - not so much because I think I'm right but because I like to challenge myself to consider that there are many, many, different ways to handle any situation.
I enjoy playing with new concepts regarding what is possible in the mental, and physical dimensions of our lives. I enjoy people, but more importantly I enjoy experimenting with different ways to transcend my various self-imposed limitations and to teach others how to do the same.
I like teaching myself and others how to embrace the principles of personal responsibility.
I like challenges – but not in the way I used to. I am less and less enamored with the result and more and more intrigued about what I learn in the process.
I am not attempting to WOW anyone with what little I know, but would like to guide each of you to think just a little bit differently about who you are, what you do, and how you do it.
"Hi Ralph – I wanted to take a minute and tell you what an outstanding job I thought you did on the class the last 2 days. I was glad I had the opportunity to audit the class (and get to participate as well!). It was evident to me that you really customized the training to our audience, which makes it so much more impactful. You chose videos and exercises that our folks could relate to and you were engaging and very welcoming to other points of view. I know how much goes into a class like that, and it was clear that you were flexible in changing your plans a bit to meet the needs to our audience. Thank you for the time and effort that you put into it."
