Everyone Has A Chance To Be Successful

People often handle life as they do bad weather.
They while away the time waiting for it to stop.
Yet the tide of opportunity comes to everyone.

Opportunity knocks all the time, but you've got to be ready for it.
When your chance comes, you must have the equipment to take advantage of it.

The race is not to the swift or the battle to the strong, for time and chance happen to everyone. Take a second look at what appears to be someone's "good luck." You'll find not luck but preparation, planning and success-producing thinking.

When you're prepared for opportunity your chance for success is sure to come.
The season of failure is the best time for sowing the seeds of success.

Flood Your Awareness

There are choices we an make that support and guide us in empowering ways towards the goals we set for ourselves. I find that when we open our hearts and minds to things that inspire us we start to create new ways of thinking, new habits that transform us and a whole new way of how we show up in out life. Wouldn't it be wonderful to do one new thing a day that creates a sense of wonder within? How cool would it be to discover new ways to freshen up an old paradigm that has kept you stuck in "your way of doing things"

Imagine that if you let your mind just go for it and think thoughts that would open you up to a whole new world of possibility rather than censor yourself in beliefs that things are impossible how much you could create by just saying yes and going for it. When you Flood Your Awareness with uplifting and empowering thoughts and materials what you get is new ways of being and old habits just fall away as life begins to take on a new picture of what's really possible.

Imagine yourself as a painter and you are starting your day with a blank canvas. You look at the canvas and you begin to imagine what it is you want to create. You start to Flood Your Awareness with thoughts and ideas that only you can create. You are the brush and the brush stroke. You are the paint and the colors. You are one with the force inside of you that is calling out to you to begin to paint the picture you have inside and bring it forth. You are creating the visible from the invisible. You have total freedom to create anything you can think of. This is your life.

There is no thing in between you and your piece of art except the thoughts that you are creating as you begin to express them on the canvas. This is how LIFE is. You get to decide what you want it to look like. You get to pick the ways in which you want to look at it. You get to say what it will be and choose what actions are necessary to get to where you want to go. Begin each day with an attitude of gratitude that you have all you need to be all you want to be as youFlood Your Awareness with thoughts of success that bring you closer and closer to the passion in your heart. Enjoy the journey because the ride will be authentic and amazing.

"When you remember that what you remember has an impact on how you will be you will begin to remember everything that empowers and inspires you rather than thoughts that hold you back and your journey will become fresh with imagine and brilliance...just remember what that feels like."

Nothing great was every achieved without enthusiasm"-Ralph Waldo Emerson

As we mark the middle of October take a few minutes to recharge to finish the month with enthusiasm and success.

Success is a very personal thing, but most people would agree that true success is about being fulfilled in life. It is that feeling of deep satisfaction that starts
in your soul and radiates through your being. The end result is happiness and peace
of mind. Watch the 3 minute movie, "The Nature of Success" to inspire you, your family or team to reach for success personally and professionally.

Kind regards,

Your Partner & Friend In YOUR Success,

Tip of the Day

Here is my version of how to apply the
"Law of Attraction":

1. Get a clear image of what you want to accomplish.

2. Picture in your mind that you have already
achieved your goal.

3. Begin the process of studying the skills you will
need to accomplish your goal.

4. Begin to take small, continuous action steps.

5. As the universe provides ideas to you that look
like they might work, keep the ones that do and
eliminate the ones that don't.

The Essence of Leadership

If your organization’s goal is to create a lasting service’re going to love this book! It is filled with unforgettable true stories about individuals and companies who have “wowed” their customers and turned them into raving fans!

Excerpted from The Essence of Leadership

On March 5, 2003, I turned on Good Morning, America while eating breakfast. Charles Gibson was interviewing General Earl Hailston, the commanding general of Marine Forces Central Command. The general was waiting with his troops just a few miles off the border of Iraq…waiting to go to war. General Hailston is the only general in the armed forces who had enlisted and came up through the ranks, and as he spoke, I was impressed by his humble and caring attitude.

Toward the end of the interview, his answer to a question touched me deeply. When Charles asked him if he had any hobbies outside of his work, the general said, “Yes, I love photography, especially taking photos of my men.” He shared that while he had been waiting for the past few days he would take photos of his men, and at night he would email the photos with a brief note to their mothers back in the USA. Charles asked if he could see a sample of a letter, and the general walked into his tent, turned on his computer, and read the last letter he had sent. It said:

Dear Mrs. Johnson,

I thought you might enjoy seeing this picture of your son. He is doing great. I also wanted you to know that you did a wonderful job of raising him. You must be very proud. I can certainly tell you that I’m honored to serve with him in the U.S. Marines.

General Earl Hailston

Wow! I had goose bumps as I watched. I then watched Charles randomly interview a few of General Hailston’s men. You could feel the genuine love and respect that every one of them had for their leader. You may have heard the quote, “They don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care.” Well, here’s a man who truly understood what caring leadership is all about.
