Catch Me If You Can – Frank Abagnale

It’s a true story of Frank Abagnale.

Or if you like Frank Williams, Robert Conrad, Frank Adams, and Robert Monjo.

One man. Many names. Many identities. Many careers.

He became a pilot, a doctor, a lawyer and a professor.

So far so good.

Only problem is he was a con artist.

Now that’s ingenious if you ask me.

All in, he cashed over $2.5 million in forged checks before he got busted in France where he met her cruel prison.

His tale is an inspiring one and I think the moral of the story is if he can fly a plane, supervise a hospital operation, practise law and lecture a class without the technical know how, then what is more of us, in our personal capacity and circle of competence. Should we even doubt ourselves when we are just stretching out a little from our comfort zone? At least we know something when he had to start from scratch. How do you just walk into an airport and fly a plane?

His ‘winning formulas’ can be summarized as follows:

(a) Personality

(b) Observation

(c) Homework & research

Go read Catch Me If You Can by Frank Abagnale. You’ll walk out more inspired and confident.
