The Pursue Your It Project

A passionate motivational message that shows you the power of a nail. a mirror, and a seed. 

What Do We Do?

The Pursue Your "it" Project is designed to promote college and career readiness beginning with late elementary-aged students. The program is aligned to the social and emotional learning benchmarks for New York State schools, which include developing self-awareness and self-management skills essential to success in school and life, using social awareness and interpersonal skills to establish and maintain positive relationships, and demonstrating ethical decision-making skills and responsible behaviors in personal, school, and community contexts. The lessons and activities directly target the individual learning standards for each social and emotional learning benchmark. 

The Pursue Your "it" Project has been created to inspire, educate and challenge students to pursue their personal potential. The program is delivered as a stand-alone keynote, school assembly, six week curriculum, half day workshop, or full day seminar.
 

Our Mission is to inspire, challenge, and encourage those who seek their personal potential, passion, and purpose in life. We encourage people to see the endless possibilities available to them if they commit to their personal growth, while becoming accountable and dedicated to themselves and their goals no matter what their circumstances may be.

The program begins with a motivational message and ends with the challenge to Pursue Your It. The system can be implemented throughout your life, reminding and teaching you the fact that you have the freedom to make choices that can change your life.

Watch Us In Action

 

The Process

Exposure to the project starts in a group setting; a school assembly, meeting room, or even a gymnasium. Cindy Miller shares her story of resilience, tenacity, and determination on the way to becoming one of the best teachers/players of the game of golf in the world. She reveals "The it Box" and challenges her audiences to pursue their personal "it". If they choose to do so, there are three steps in the process.

Passion

It all starts with "WHY". Why are you here? What do you want? How will you get "it"? Are you willing to work? If so, LET'S DO THIS!

Purpose

We believe everyone has talent. It is up to each individual to learn about themselves; their motivation, their personal behavior style, and what fires them up about life. When they take the time to do that, they will be more willing to work towards their goals.

Possibilities

Once you take the time to be introspective and learn who you really are, there are endless possibilities for you to live a more fulfilling life. "IT" can be found!

Follow Up

Once a student completes the program, there will be ongoing follow up sessions every six months. Our mission is to be sure students stay with "It" their whole life. Student Ambassadors will be in the field creating long lasting relationships with each student who completes the program.

Where have we been?

Our programs have been delivered in: The Buffalo Promise Neighborhood, Big Brothers/Big Sisters of Erie County, Silver Creek Central School, and Martin Road Elementary School in Lackawanna, New York. We are on a mission to make a difference in the lives of every child everywhere. Will you help us make that happen?

"I can certainly relate to a story about a person from humble beginnings who has overcome obstacles. Cindy Miller has beaten the odds and achieved more than and beyond even her own expectations. Her story is told to encourage others through their own personal struggles in sport, business and life. She desires to help people maximize their own personal potential. To hear it is to be inspired."

"When I think of Cindy Miller, I automatically smile. She has the ability to make you laugh at her, with her, and at yourself. She is a survivor, a coach, a wife, a Mom, and one of the most genuine friends you will ever meet. Knowing what she has overcome on her road to her success only increases the admiration I already had for her. I wouldn’t expect her to hold anything back when she tells her story, and luckily for us, she didn’t."

Michael Whan

"It takes a lot of courage to write about the ups and downs of personal and family life. Cindy Miller has done just that in creating The Pursue Your It Foundation. As you learn about Cindy's life journey, the thing that will stand out the most is her determination and desire to succeed. I believe her inherent "never give up" attitude helped her to navigate the trials and tribulations and achieve her goals. Hopefully those who participate in her programs will be touched and inspired by Cindy's spirit and will benefit as well in their own lives."
