What Is Beyond Your Default?

“Everyone keeps telling me I should be happy, but I’m not.” “I feel stuck.” “I have a calling, but where do I start?” 

Right now, you have a choice. You can continue living within your default norms, playing it safe, clocking in and clocking out every day, scraping by to hopefully achieve what’s supposed to make you happy. Or you can choose to accept the challenge of living beyond your default. To stop wishing to live your “best life” and start actually living your best life. Success leaves clues. And they’re waiting for you to discover them.

Take Your First Step

We’ve Been Waiting for You

You’re Ready for Your Breakthrough

You’re built for more and you’re hungry for more. You’ve tried to play by the rules and live up to the “status quo” that was supposed to make you happy. Now, you’re ready for a change to chart your own path, and you need a guide who’s been there.

You're at a Fork in the Road

There are pivotal moments in life when you must make a choice. Sometimes we know they're coming (going to college, starting a new business), and sometimes we don't (a divorce, an unexpected blessing or loss). You're ready to bet on yourself. It's time.

You Were Born a High-Achiever

Here’s something that no one tells you about what it’s like close to the mountaintop — the oxygen is thinner and it’s lonely. Heck, sometimes you still feel like an imposter. But you know you have more to accomplish. Now, you don’t have to do it alone. 

I just listened to the Forgiveness Part Two episode. Wow! Great job. I felt like I was listening to old friends have a long cup of coffee and wanted to engage. Seriously, George and Liz, you are creating a great resource. More importantly, it was a wonderful topic, emotionally engaging, and very needed.

Beyond Your Default' is a masterclass in becoming a better human. It’s like grabbing coffee with some good friends and getting into the “good stuff.” This kind of down-to-earth conversation makes you walk away, seeing life from a fresh, elevated angle. I love how George & Liz ditch the superficial inspirational platitudes and share their stories with raw and bleeding honesty, inviting you to take action on the things that matter most… getting 1% better everyday. Trust me, your commute, workout, or evening walk will never be the same again!"

George B Thomas - Beyond Your Default-optimized

George B. Thomas

It would be easy for me to default to my usual list of “hats” I wear — business owner, family man, husband, father, and a man of faith. All of those things are true, and I embrace these labels with an immense amount of pride. But let’s be honest, you don’t care about all that stuff. None of it tells you who I really am.

Throughout my life, I’ve lived in every possible economic circumstance you can imagine. I started out as a kid who rode a pony to a one-room schoolhouse. I’ve gone from being a bouncer at a bar to a church youth pastor. I’ve been on food stamps and welfare. Today, I’m a keynote speaker and business owner who has been blessed to have traveled much of the world. 

Although it certainly wasn’t always true, I stand before you today a man who is grateful for each of these experiences — from challenging and painful, to inspiring and uplifting. Because of them, I am able to serve you through thought-provoking conversations that empower you to live the life that is waiting for you. The one that exists beyond your default.

Life has a funny way of subverting our expectations — out-of-leftfield zigs when we expect more neat-and-tidy zags perpetually remind us how terrible we are at predicting the future. Still, I cannot think of a single life “zig” I would take back; even the most painful moments have been blessings in disguise.

Like George, I could phone this section in with a boilerplate bio — business owner, writer, speaker, etc. — but that is not my true story. I’ve spent most of my life feeling like a disappointment, forever an “other” on the outside, failing to meet expectations and never quite belonging anywhere. 

It took my “perfect-on-paper” life catastrophically imploding to wake me up to a horrifying fact. Out of fear, I had meticulously constructed a “dream” life that would only ever make me feel empty, alone, and miserable. So, my mission now is to use my gifts to be a catalyst for catalysts — like George and like you. You have so much to offer this world. Are you ready to reach beyond your default and redefine what’s possible?
