Episode 045 of the Mountain Mantras: Wellness and Life Lessons show features Roe and Don Polczynski.
This incredibly close couple met when Roe started at the company where Don was already employed.
The fun began when Don tried to train Roe on a software program and she took the computer mouse from him. He should have known then and there: life would never be the same.
As they have now celebrated 15 years of marriage, this foundation of working together has been rejuvenated in their first book, Changing Your Equation. The book is a testament to the blessings God has brought to their life, love, and future.
Here are the 7 mantras from the show:
1. Consider New Year’s resolutions “obsolete”
2. Schedule a “dream day” instead (a New Year revolution)
3. Plan your dream day out
4. Write it down: bring a notebook and a pen, and think about key questions such as: What would you change about your life if you had no obstacles? If you had more spare time, what would you do? What makes you happy?
5. Take “busy” out of your vocabulary. Instead, a task might be “not of the highest priority”
6. Focus on solutions (please), not problems
7. Shift your mindset from victim to ownership (choice)
More about Roe: Keeping a mind open to all possibilities is a hallmark of Roe’s life. She has lived the pages of this book in her pursuit of an M.B.A. degree, the launch of her consulting firm, RD Advisory Group, LLC and the giving nature of her mission to be a Fairy Godmother. Ultimately her greatest blessing is her marriage, family, friends and of course her beloved dog Pixie.
More about Don: Don personifies the phrase, “a changed man.” Best known in his early years for his inward focus Don, in combined forces with Roe, is now all about sharing knowledge, happiness, and fulfillment with the world. This focus includes using his Master’s Degree in Business Management, 30 years of business experience including over a decade as a senior executive, to increasingly push the envelope to change the lives of others. While Don’s Ideal Future has certainly changed, his understated, humble and down to earth style that originates from his farm boy days remains.
