You'll never achieve real success unless you like what you're doing.

What you do is more important than how much money you make. How you feel about what you do is more important than what you do.

The more you love what you're doing, the more successful it will be for you. Don't set compensation as your goal.

Find the work you like and the compensation will follow.

You don't pay the price of success, you enjoy the price of success.

You gain the advantage in any situation through one medium: time
You can do things before they need to be done. You can position yourself ahead of time in the best place.

Think ahead of any approaching action. Make a plan and you will always have the advantage.

Let your advance worrying become advance thinking and planning. The time to repair the roof is when the sun is shining.

In life, as in chess, forethought wins.

Keys to Being a Top Performer

There are three things essential for becoming an outstanding performer:

1) You have to remain technically competent. The half-life of knowledge gets shorter every day. Become a lifelong learner to remain technically competent throughout your career.

2) You need to set and achieve high goals. Set milestones to help you keep on track with your goals. Focus on your goals every day. Do at least one thing every day that moves you closer to accomplishing each of your goals.

3) You need to be well organized. Manage your time, stress, workspace and lifestyle well.

People who try to do something and fail are infinitely better than those who try to do nothing and succeed.

Experiencing failure is inevitable on your journey to be successful. Each defeat is merely an installment to victory.

You'll find that the number of times you succeed is in direct proportion to the number of times you fail and keep trying. You won't be judged by the number of times you fail, but by the number of times you succeed.

Failure is nothing but education, nothing but the first step to something better.

You can't be a winner and be afraid to lose.

Excerpt from:Wisdom of Wolves, by Twyman Towery


No other mammal shows more spirited devotion to its family, organization or social group than the wolf. The members of the wolf pack hunt together to insure survival of the group, but they also play, sing, sleep, scuffle and protect each other. A wolf's purpose for existing is to insure the survival of the pack.

A wolf pack is made up of parents, aunts, uncles, brothers, sisters, half brothers and half sisters - it is truly an extended family organization. And though generally only the Alpha male and Alpha female produce pups, every member of the pack participates in the nurturing and education of the young. Each pack member assumes responsibility for the food, shelter, training, protection and play where the pups are concerned, for the pack realizes that the young are their future.

The loyalty exhibited between wolves is well known and documented. But a Montana man who has used his summers for years to study wolves in Alaska gave me a different view of wolf loyalty. He told about a couple he knew who lived in an extremely remote area with their two sons in a log cabin they had made by hand. This family also included two wolves they had raised from earliest puppyhood, rescuing them from their den after their mother had been indiscriminately shot and the pups left to die. This was the only family the wolves had ever known, having only lived with humans as their pack mates.

One day the parents were cutting wood about a mile from home when one of the boys accidentally turned over a kerosene lamp (there was no electricity), and a raging fire began to consume the wooden structure. The two wolves immediately dashed toward the flaming cabin where the two boys were trapped inside, immobilized by smoke and fear. The parents were far behind, so the wolves gnawed and fought their way into the cabin and pulled the boys outside to safety. Though both wolves were badly burned, their loyalty to their "pack" meant the difference between life and death for these two members of their "pack."

The Wolf Credo written by Del Goetz truly captures what the wolf is all about:

--Respect the elders
--Teach the young
--Cooperate with the pack.

--Play when you can
--Hunt when you must
--Rest in between.

--Share your affections
--Voice your feelings
--Leave your mark.

Always be mindful that you're a product of your environment.

So choose an environment that will best develop you toward your objective.

Analyze your life in terms of your environment.
Are the things around you helping you toward your success, or are they holding you back?

The first step toward getting somewhere is to decide that you're not going to stay where you are. You're not a captive of your environment.

If you don't like where you are, you can make some changes. You're not planted permanently in the ground like a tree. Don't say, "You would, if you could," start saying, "You will, because you can."

When you become a part of anything it becomes a part of you.

Tuesday, July 20, 2010


Everyone who got where they are had to begin where they were. Your opportunity for success is right in front of you.

To attain success or to reach your goal, don't worry about having all the answers in advance. You just need to have a clear idea of your goal and move toward it.

Don't procrastinate when faced with a difficult problem. Break your problems into parts and handle one part at a time.

Develop a tendency toward action. You can make something happen today. Break your big plan for success into small steps and take the first step right away.

Success starts with a first step

Thursday, July 15, 2010


You can not have success without dealing with problems.

Look for your opportunity in every difficulty instead of being paralyzedat the thought of difficulty in every opportunity.

Each new experience brings with it the seed of your success. Even your current difficulties have within them opportunity.

Welcome your problems as opportunities. Each moment is your greatest challenge and the best thing that ever happened to you.

The more difficult your problem, the greater the challenge
in working it out.

When it's dark enough, you can see the stars.

Tip Of the Day

If you make a mistake when dealing with a customer, admit it, apologize for it, fix it, and move on. Customers really don’t expect you to be perfect. They do, however, expect you to be honest…and make a great recovery.
~Eric Harvey

Success or failure? It's always your choice. You alone have the responsibility to shape your life.

Once you understand this, nothing and no one can deny you success. There's really no one to stop you but yourself.

More powerful than all the success slogans ever written is the realization that everyone has but one boss. That boss is you.

Your life will always be to a large extent what you make of it. No one can cheat you
out of ultimate success but you.

If you want to be successful, you can be successful.

Step into Your Freedom

Imagine your day being one of absolute perfection as all you do you do in a state of effortless creation. Imagine always being connected to your heart centered calling which is the one thing that speaks louder to you about who you really are than any other thing that is present in any moment of your day. This state of mind is always available to you when you begin to start thinking in ways that bring you in perfect harmony with the infinite wisdom and divine intelligence that is your constant companion in all you do.

Begin your day everyday in ways that invite you to "Step Into YOUR Freedom" by letting go of the old idea of YOU and embrace the new idea that is emerging. Believe in your ability to have it all. Know that right where you are YOU get to decide which path to travel on. To have this freedom all you need to do is create the space for it to move into form by capturing the flow of life that is your vehicle to growth and transformation.

You are free to have all the gifts in your life that will bring you love, joy, peace and harmony. And as you receive these gifts you are then free to share them with others.

How magnificent your life is. The excellence and genius of who you are is always being brought forth in all you do. Even when you may not be able to see it. The extraordinary peresence of who you are is being activated in all you do with ease and grace. This activation is backed by a perfect knowingness that your life is blessed.

You have a power in you that is so alive and awake it becomes intoxicating as you create the realization of your dreams. The key to living a life that is passionately grounded in expressing your unique gift and talent is stepping into your calling by claiming your journey as one of unlimited inspiration.

You have a fertile and infinite imagination whose time is now to bring to the world the brilliance of YOU. Plant in your garden of LIFE all those things that you want to see grow abundantly and commit to giving yourself permission to "Step Into YOUR Freedom" as you free your mind to broadcast the perfect creation known as Y OU.

"When you see yourself as all the magnificence YOU truly are the world sees it too."

Sunday, June 27, 2010



Every big accomplishment is a series of little accomplishments. To achieve maximum success you must accept that progress is made one step at a time.

A building is built one brick at a time. Football games are won one play at a time. A business grows bigger one customer at a time. You walk over the highest mountain one step at a time.

Success is the sum of small efforts repeated day in and day out.

Nothing great is created suddenly, any more than a bunch of grapes or an apple miraculously appears. If you want to grow an apple, you must give it time. There must be time for it to blossom, bear fruit and then ripen.

That which grows fast, withers as rapidly. That which grows slowly, endures.

Name That Gender

I thought I would do a lil twist and humor today. ENJOY!!!

Name That Gender

Many languages refer to everyday objects as either male or
female. Wouldn’t English be more interesting and versatile
if we did, too? These suggestions are from the Washington
Post, which asked readers to assign a gender to nouns of
their choice and explain their reason.

The best submissions:

SWISS ARMY KNIFE: Male, because even though it appears
useful for a wide variety of work, it spends most of its
time just opening bottles.

KIDNEYS: Female, because they always go to the bathroom in

HOT AIR BALLOON: Male, because to get it to go anywhere you
have to light a fire under it...and, of course, there's the
hot air part.

SPONGES: Female, because they are soft and squeezable and
retain water.

SHOE: Male, because it is usually unpolished, with its
tongue hanging out.

COPIER: Female, because once turned off, it takes a while
to warm up. Because it is an effective reproductive device
when the right buttons are pushed. Because it can wreak
havoc when the wrong buttons are pushed.

ZIPLOC BAGS: Male, because they hold everything in, but you
can always see right through them.

WEB PAGE: Female, because it is always getting hit on.

SUBWAY: Male, because it uses the same old lines to pick
people up.

HAMMER: Male, because it hasn't evolved much over the last
5,000 years, but it's handy to have around.

REMOTE CONTROL: Female...Ha!...you thought I'd say male.
But consider, it gives a man pleasure, he'd be lost without
it, and while he doesn't always know the right buttons to
push, he keeps trying.

The Awakened Heart

The rhythm of your life is expressed through the connection you have with the calling of your heart. The art of creating the life you desire begins with listening to the masterpiece of magnificence that resides in your heart. THE AWAKENED HEART is one that dreams big and bold free from any thoughts of lack and limitation. You are given permission to express the desires that are seeking to emerge from your soul.

To capture that which is the DNA of your beingness will always look like an opportunity of possibility when you think in the most positive of ways. This will guide you towards the actions you need to take to manifest those dreams you now see as becoming your reality.

It is therefore so important to listen to the voice of your heat as you make the choices and take the actions needed that will bring you closer to the success you are seeking. It is in the listening that the answers will come.

The universe wants to give you everything you set an intention to have and only knows that when your determination is strong and your vision is clear. This is the signal that you send to the universe that you are ready to receive all the fruits and gifts of possibility that are ready to effortlessly come into your life.

When you are ready to receive all you need to accomplish anything you set out to do then the floodgates of creativity open up and the dynamic ideas that are always flowing will organize themselves in perfect divine order.

Your life will begin to look like everything you imagined it could with ease and grace. THE AWAKENED HEART holds the key to the freedom to be anything you want to be. You have the power right where you are to create the life you desire and there is nothing that can stop you except YOU.

Be your biggest supporter and let go of anything that gets in the way of releasing the brilliance that you are.

"In every moment of everyday there is a voice that always says be strong be bold and most of all be YOU...Listen to it. It holds the answers to having a magnificent life."


The first step toward getting somewhere is to decide that you're not going to stay where you are.

You're a product of your environment. So choose an environment that will best develop you toward your goals.

Analyze your life in terms of your environment. Are the things around you helping you toward your success or are they holding you back?

Your world today is a living expression of how you are using and have used your mind. It's something that you can change at any time.

You don't have to remain a captive of your environment.
Don't say "If I could change, I would change,"

Say "I can change, and I will change."

Your dreams will come true if you have the desire to pursue them.
You must believe in yourself.

Know in your heart that you can do the job that you set out to do.
You are never given a wish without also given the power to make it come true.
The achievement of your goal is assured the moment you commit yourself to it.

Everything is possible if you believe it's possible. It's your mind that sets your limits. What you envision you can do, you can do.

Start thinking of yourself as a success and success will follow. You can because you think you can.

Success is a state of mind, you have the power if you have the desire.

Children Learn What They Live by Denis Waitley

An ancient Chinese proverb tells us, “A child’s life is like a piece of paper on which every passerby leaves a mark.” We cannot teach our children self-esteem. We can only help them discover it within themselves by adding positive marks and strokes on their slates. All positive motivation is rooted in self-esteem—the development of which, just as with other skills, takes practice. Think of self-esteem as a four-legged chair.

A Sense of Belonging
The first leg of self-esteem is a sense of belonging. We all have a deep-seated need to feel we’re part of something larger than ourselves. This need, which psychologists call an affiliation drive, encompasses people, places and possessions. Our instinct for belonging—for being wanted, accepted, enjoyed and loved by close ones—is extremely powerful. It explains the bond of an extended family, friends and teammates. It also explains why some adolescents join gangs. They want to belong, even if it’s wrong.

Make your children proud of their family heritage and make your home a place where they feel safe, loved and welcome. Also, make your home a place where your children want to bring their friends, rather than a place they want to leave as soon as possible.

A Sense of Individual Identity
The second leg, which complements the sense of belonging, is a sense of individual identity. No human being is exactly like another, not even an identical twin. We are all unique combinations of talents and traits that never existed before and will never exist again in quite the same package. (This explains why most parents believe their children came from different planets!)

Observe your children as they grow and play. Watch their learning styles. Notice what they love to do in their free time. Help them discover their unique positive talents and help nurture them into skills. Report cards don’t necessarily measure talents. They often are a measure only of discipline, memory and attention span.

A Sense of Worthiness
The third leg of self-esteem is a sense of worthiness, the feeling that I’m glad I’m me, with my genes and background, my body, my unique thoughts. Without our own approval, we have little to offer. If we don’t feel worth loving, it’s hard to believe that others love us; instead, we tend to see others as appraisers or judges of our value.

Show your children unconditional love. Carefully separate the doer from the deed, and the performer from the performance. The message, “I love you no matter what happens, and I’m always there for you,” is one of most important concepts in building a feeling of worthiness or intrinsic value in children. After every reprimand, let them know you love them. Before they go to sleep at night, give them the reassurance that, regardless of what happened that day, you love them unconditionally.

A healthy sense of belonging, identity and worthiness can only be rooted in intrinsic core values as opposed to outer, often material, motivation. Without them, we depend on others constantly to fill our leaking reserves of self-esteem—but also tend to suspect others of ulterior motives. Unable to accept or reject others’ opinions for what they’re worth, we are defensive about criticism and paranoid about praise—and no amount of praise can replace the missing qualities.

A healthy sense of belonging, identity and worthiness is also essential to belief in your dreams. It is most essential during difficult times, when you have only a dream to hang on to.

A Sense of Control and Competence
Early in my career in motivational psychology, I thought the chair of self-esteem balanced firmly on those three legs, especially since they involved intrinsic core values. It took much time and research to realize that a fourth leg—one of the most important—was missing.

There are many reasons why few Americans currently in high school and college believe they were born to win. The supportive extended family—in many cases, even the nuclear family—is disappearing. Role models are increasingly unhealthy. The commercial media bombards young senses ever more insistently with crime, violence, hedonism and other unhealthy forms of escape. But whatever the explanation, constructive citizens and leaders in society cannot emerge and develop without the creative imagination that serves them like fuel—which is why the apprehension, frustration, and hesitation I see and hear in the younger generation is cause for concern. At the moment, the future they imagine will help drive neither happiness nor success.

The chair’s fourth leg is self-efficacy, a functional belief in your ability to control what happens to you in a changing, uncertain world. A sense of worthiness may give you the emotional means to venture, but you need self-efficacy, the sense of competence and control, to believe you can succeed. That’s why it is so important to assign responsibility for small tasks to your children as early as possible so they can learn that their choices and efforts result in consequences and successes. The more success they experience, the stronger their confidence grows—and the more responsibility they want to assume.

Give them specific household chores and duties they can accomplish and be proud of. Teach them that their problems and setbacks are just temporary inconveniences and learning experiences. Emphasize it constantly: Setbacks are not failures.

Armed with a view of failure as a learning experience, children can develop an early eagerness for new challenges and will be less afraid to try new skills. Although they appreciate compliments, they benefit most from their own belief that they are making a valuable contribution to life, according to their own internal standards.

In an increasingly competitive global marketplace, each new, young member of the workforce simply must believe that he or she is a team leader, a self-empowered, quality individual who expresses that quality in excellent production and service. With increasing pressures on profit and the need to do more with fewer workers because of e-commerce and changing technology, it is essential that parents and business leaders help raise the value of their children’s and employees’ stock in themselves.

Our Kids Are Not Our Clones
One of the most valuable lessons I have learned in being an effective family leader and in raising six children is: “Treat our children with the same respect we expect from them.” Our children are not clones or copies of us. Although they mimic us and other adults as role models, they cannot be expected to feel or act the way we do. Kahlil Gibran is my favorite on the subject:

Your children are not your children.
They are the sons and daughters of Life’s longing for itself….
You may give them your love but not your thoughts,
For they have their own thoughts.
You may house their bodies but not their souls,
For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit,
Not even in your dreams.
You may strive to be like them,
but seek not to make them be like you.
For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday.

The Revealing Heart

The passion and purpose you pursue for yourself when grounded in a heart centered place will always reveal itself in ways that are unimaginable. Just knowing that you are living an authentic and transparent life brings THE REVEALING HEART to all you do.

The pure presence of truth will open you up for more and more of your real self to be expressed. This real self is the powerful creative essence of where you were always intended to live from. By living from the heart the magical mystery tour of life brings all the glory and insight you need to manifest anything you set your mind out to do.

The simple fact that you can choose the path you want to take will create an awareness that is centered around the joy of giving and receiving all the beauty that is before you. Setting an intention to follow your heart is the first step in firing up the attention you need to follow your dream.

LIFE will always bring to you that which you are seeking. Rather than focus on what you don't want, which by the way is what you will get, focus on what you want and watch as what flows to you will support your vision from a place of absolute and perfect understanding.

There is no way your life can look like anything other than what you want it to. THE REVEALING HEART is the center of the universe from which you live. All the joy and love you need is right where you are fully available to you. There is no thing other than magnificent excellence emerging from you in every moment of your day.

You already know this. It is in your heart always. Create the life you want to lead by leading with your heart and see the perfect loving essence in you. Your LIFE is awesome and amazing. Feel it, embrace it. Get ready the ride will be extraordinary.

"When you look within what you will find is the real YOU. Connect with your heart it is the command center of your being."


You must avoid breaking when things don't go your way. You'll always be secure to the degree that you accept change.

True security comes from being able to bend your insecurities.

Recognize and accept that change will inevitably take place. You'll become secure, not by standing still, but by growing, moving, and staying energized.

Be secure in the knowledge that you can deal with anything
that happens to you.

Have the courage to bet on your ideas. Take some calculated risks and act on your dreams.

There is no permanent security on this earth, there is only opportunity.

Breadth of Thought

The power of your thought will carry you purposefully towards the destination you desire. Behind every thought is a vision, part of the dream you have for yourself and in that vision there is a an action to be taken.

No matter what you may think, the awareness that lives within you is always seeking its perfect expression encouraging you to keep waking up to your brilliance so that what is seeking you will have a clear and unbridled path to manifestation.

Are you ready for your life to look like you always wanted it to? Do you know that you hold the key to how your gift gets expressed? Will you stay in the present moment as you see the infinite possibility for your life?

The BREADTH OF THOUGHT that holds your attention will carry your intention. The action you take on those thoughts will lead you to having the life you desire.

Make sure the thoughts you hold are creatively backed by the courage of self-expression. You are the magnificent steward of your dreams. The excellence in you is waiting to be shared in all you do so that what you bring as your unique gift and talent is given freely.

There can be no holding back of the amazing and extraordinary presence of who you are. In every moment of your day there is a path that is open for you to take that will bring to you all the resources needed to be the change you want to see.

Being in harmonic alignment with the calling in your heart will give you the permission to think big and bold. No matter what things may look like or appear to be there is always a perfect opportunity to grow and transform.

The BREADTH OF THOUGHT you hold for yourself is heard around the world because the choice you have made to express the divine inspiration you are will release the ;brilliance that is calling you.

Your feeling tone of infinite and abundant consciousness is a most magnificent gift and presence of who you are. Keep on giving that gift.

"The perfect expression of who you are begins with the thoughts that you hold for yourself...hold big, bold and positive ones so that all of LIFE will rush to you in ways that are magical."

Sunday, February 28, 2010

The Discipline in You

The joy of who you are is captured in every breath you take as long as you are willing to accept every part of you. Often there are times when we are not able to fully accept what is because of some fear or limiting belief that things need to look a certain way and when they don't we become locked down in a place of lack and limitation.

The Discipline In YOU that force of knowing that all things are perfect right where you are will guide you in releasing those kinds of thoughts that hold you back from truly stepping into the magnificence of who you are.

It takes a practice of willingness to see beyond the limited view you may have in any moment so that the bigger picture of abundance and prosperity in every area of your life will become the playing field you participate on.

You can teach yourself through the practice of seeing the positive opportunity in everything that comes befor e to stay in the flow of life. When you do The Discipline In YOU will become the path you take to live the dream in your heart.

To live each moment of your life in the full expression of who you are is the perfect statement of letting the world know that you are here to bring your unique gift and talent so that you can share your dynamic brilliance in all you do.

No matter what the appearances are that you think you see the real kaleidoscope of life is a mural of divine expression that is a beautiful transmission of what life can always look like.

The Discipline In YOU will bring about an openness to see the day in new and powerful ways. It will give you the momentum you need to carry your vision and align your purpose with the calling of your heart.

To have the flow of life be your transportation to your dream you must approach it with The Discipline In YOU being that place you can tap into for the insights and intuition needed to manifest that d ream. You are the wisdom thinker and the dreamer go out today and capture and walk the perfect path to having it all.

"To have the blessings of harmonic alignment with your dream you have to be aware that it is The Discipline In YOU that will get you there and the courage to follow your heart."

I AM fully expressing my divine gift powerfully
I see and hear my calling as I open MY heart to infinite possibility
I AM a perfect expression of absolute abundance and prosperity
In this moment I know all is in divine right order
I have the discipline to co-create all my desires
I am in harmony and alignment as I walk the path to transformation and change

It's your day...MAKE IT A GREAT ONE!

A Short Conversation

Do you begin your day in a loving way? Do you look inside and see the beautiful expression of divine intelligence that you are and allow the magnetic wisdom of the creative expression that is seeking to emerge from you a place to begin the days journey.

What are you saying to yourself in this moment? Are you loving, caring, kind, supportive and nurturing to yourself. Is the conversation that immediately starts upon awakening one of absolute belief in the truth about who you are which is magnificence, brilliance, excellence and genius.

Can you see the power that you hold as you learn how to direct your thoughts in ways that bring you into harmony with the calling your heart. Sometimes all it takes is A SHORT CONVERSATION to remind yourself about all the awesomeness and pure potential of who you are. You can shift your thought so that what shows up as your mental picture of how you want your day to be is a masterpiece.

Creating the flow of your day has a rhythm to it. It is like a sweet melody that floats above a harmonic and seamless structure that acts in unison and oneness. The pattern of the inner workings of your heart, mind, body and spirit will always be fluid and effortless when you stay on course with the vision that you have created as the roadmap to your destiny.

Your destiny is calling you and all you need to do is to get on the path and stay in action as you move towards it. Having the ability to be aware and awake will always allow you the opportunity to course correct any journey. Sometimes all it takes is A SHORT CONVERSATION with yourself reminding yourself of just how wonderful you are.

We all need a personal rallying cry at some time so having the gift of being able do that will shift you back into receiving all the blessings that will continue to keep your momentum moving forward as you seek that which is seeking you. The universe is calling for you to step into your greatness.

"Listening to your inner dialogue with a keen and clear sense of awareness will create an outer reality that is in harmony with your heart."

Beyond the Comfort Zone

Do you realize that it takes just as much effort to maintain and sustain a certain way of being that keeps you in your comfort zone as it would to create a whole new paradigm and expression of who you are? Where do you put out such an effort so that you can protect yourself from some imagined idea that something is going to happen to you that may not result in the outcome you want?

Don't you know that there is only that which you make up in your mind as "THE STORY" that can hold you back from manifesting the dream within you which is your real story? The air of infinite possibility is always circling around you. All you need to do is to breathe it in and know with deep certainty that all is perfect right where you are.

The road to discover more and more of who you are lies just BEYOND THE COMFORT ZONE that perhaps you have settled into because it feels safe. It's time to break free from the mediocrity existence that has a hold on you and step into the perfect and dynamic expression of your true authentic self.

Every day in every way you are invited by the infinite intelligence of the universe to join the party in your honor.

Prepare Your Way

The activity of your mind is a powerful thing. It can bring light to your day, guiding you on your journey as you seek those things that bring you the success you desire. It also bring chaos to your day if what you put into it is filled by negativity, fear, doubt and worry.

Living by limiting beliefs can cause you to give up on yourself and to give in to your ego which is always working to keep you in check and stuck in a place of mediocrity. That's not who you really are.

All the goodness and infinite wisdom of divine intelligence is right where you are encouraging you to begin your journey each day knowing that all is in perfect harmony and the universe as your friend is seeking to give you all you need to move in the direction of what you are seeking.

Living from the confidence of anything is possible will cre ate a mindset that opens up your entire being to just what can happen when you say yes to the calling within you.

PREPARE YOUR WAY each day by feeding yourself those kinds of things that only uplift and empower you on your path towards co-creating the most excellent day.

It only takes a little shift each day in how you look at your life to bring about the desired results that you are seeking. Today begin to see that no matter what you may be thinking there is always a choice that you can make that will change the course of your destiny. Give in to the creative impulse and desire that speaks to you in loving ways encouraging you to live from the awesomeness of who you are.

Let go of all things that hold you back and that keep you in a state of uncertainty. Release yourself into the great and magnificent field of pure potential that you are. Seize the day by seizing every opportunity that comes your way that brings with it the chance to grow and transform.

Allow only good thoughts, positive vibrations, higher consciousness, loving attitudes and recognition of your unique gift and tale nt to have their way with you. It is when you do this that you absolutely will PREPARE YOUR WAY for all the success in every are of your life to come forth.

Let the magical mystery tour of your life surprise you in every moment as you chart a course of discovery of your true and authentic self.

"It is by saying yes to the vision you hold in your heart that a shift in consciousness happens and you step into the harmony of authentic expression that is seeking to express itself in every moment of your day."

Your success depends on the support of other people.

The only hurdle between you and what you want to be, is the support of others.

Put yourself in another's place, and you'll know why they think and do certain things. You can succeed fastest by helping others to succeed.

Always think in terms of what the other person wants.

You'll get everything in life that you want if you'll help enough other people get what they want. Doing things for others always pays dividends.

Personal relationships are the fertile soil from which all advancement, all success, all achievement in real life grows.

You're not an isolated island. You're a piece of the planet, a piece of the universe.

When you help someone's boat across a river, you'll find your own boat has reached the shore too ☺

Su éxito depende del apoyo de otras personas.

El único obstáculo entre usted y lo que queremos ser, es el apoyo de los demás.

Póngase en el lugar de otro, y usted sabrá por qué piensan y hacen ciertas cosas. Usted puede tener éxito más rápido, ayudando a otros a tener éxito.

Siempre piensa en términos de lo que la otra persona quiere.

Obtendrá todo en la vida que desea si les ayudas lo suficiente a otras personas conseguir lo que eelos quieren. Hacer las cosas por los demás siempre paga dividendos.

Las relaciones personales son el suelo fértil de la que todo avance, todo el éxito, todos los logros en la vida real crece.

Usted no esta en una isla aislada. Eres un pedazo del planeta, un pedazo del universo.

Cuando usted ayuda a un barco de alguien a través de un río, encontrará su propio barco ha llegado a la costa también. ☺

All Personal Growth Involves Change

Personal growth is the process of responding positively to change. It involves risk as you step from the known to the unknown.

All your growth will depend on your activity.
Your strength and growth will come only through continuous effort and struggle. There will be no development without effort.

Trouble is the common denominator of living.
It is the great equalizer of life.
Your trials, your sorrows and your grief's will develop you.

When good or bad fortune comes your way, you must give it meaning and transform it into something of value.

What happens to you is not as important as your reaction to what is happening. Life is made up of a series of experiences.
Each one will make you stronger, even though it may be hard for you to realize it at the time.

Life is your classroom in which you're being tested, tried, and passed.
Always try to stay in the midst of life and activity. Don't isolate yourself from the action.
Your character develops itself in the stream of life.

The setbacks and hardships you endure actually help you in your march forward to success. The world was built to develop your character.

Life expects you to make progress in reasonable time. That's why those elementary school chairs are so small.

A Mountain Is Climbed One Step At A Time

Everyone who got where they are had to begin where they were. Your opportunity for success is right in front of you.

To attain success or to reach your goal, don't worry about having all the answers in advance. You just need to have a clear idea of your goal and move toward it.

Don't procrastinate when faced with a difficult problem.
Break your problems into parts and handle one part at a time.

Develop a tendency toward action.
You can make something happen today.
Break your big plan for success into small steps and take the first step right away.

Success starts with a first step.

Organizing for the New Year

So, today, on your TO DO list; get your 2010 off on the right foot by closing down 2009.

Transfer all of your files for the past year into a banker’s box. Start a file for the mail that will begin coming in that is marked “For Tax Purposes” (statements of giving, statements from interest paid, etc;).

Start all new file folders for the coming year so that as you begin to accumulate this year’s bills, statements, and as you begin to do your parties for 2010 you are ready to go.

Here are the categories that will help keep your filing system organized for this year if you don’t already have a system that works for you:

· January – December: set up one file per month for your orders

· Advertising ( yellow pages, internet ads, classified ads, business cards, logo items, etc;)

· Auto expenses (gas, repair, oil changes, insurance, lease payments, car washes, etc;)

· Product Cost Allocation (products used or given away but not sold)

· Override Commissions (if applicable – depends on your career plan – bonus money paid out from your team)

· Office Expenses and Supplies (printing costs, paper, envelopes, rubber stamps, etc;)

· Business Supplies (catalogs, sales fliers, order forms, etc;)

· Travel (Air, Bus, Cab, Train Fares and Lodging costs)

· Meals and Entertainment (includes conventions, recruiting appointments, out-of-town business expenses)

· Wages, Casual Labor and Outside Services

· Bank Charges and Bank Statements (includes check printing or money order fees)

· Continuing Education (Seminars, Meetings, Conferences, Conventions)

· Postage and Shipping

· Telephone (including cell phone bills)

· Credit Card Transactions

· Credit Card Statements

· Business Gifts

· Miscellaneous Receipts

· Child Care (Provider’s Name, Address, ID/SS# required)

· Home Office Expenses (Insurance, Repairs, Maintenance, Utilities, Yard and Lawn expenses)

· Medical Expenses

· Interest Expenses (Mortgage, Loans, etc;)

· Taxes (Personal property; real estate)

· State Income Taxes

· Business books, periodicals, dues and subscription costs

Close out 2009 by totaling all your expenses in each category, so that you are ready to present your numbers to your tax preparer. By doing this now while 2009 is still fresh in your mind, you will save yourself a big headache when you file your income taxes.

As a certified public accountant I hope this helps everyone to get organized with their taxes for 2009 & 2010

We all goin' to win in 20 10

Ideas of Plenty

LIFE is abundant and prosperous. There is more than enough to satisfy the desire each of us has to create a world that works for everyone. It is only when we allow thoughts of lack and limitation to creep into our consciousness that we begin to doubt the presence of divine intelligence that invites us to open our hearts so we can receive the blessings that are ours for the asking. The feeling tone of good and plenty is right where you are.

Are you willing to receive it? Do you have the capacity to reframe old beliefs and step into the pure potential of the moment? Will you begin to see LIFE through a new lens free of any blinders that hold you back from expressing the real you? Are you grateful for all you are? You are an extraordinary reservoir of ideas whose time has come. There is no shortage of creativity right where you are there is only ID EAS OF PLENTY waiting for you to catch them so that your LIFE can look exactly as you see it in the vision of your heart.

You are the master of your journey the visionary of your destiny. Your purpose in LIFE must speak louder than anything you have heard before. When you begin to hear the calling of your heart clearly you will become more focus and certain on the path you have chosen so that you will arrive at the destination you are seeking with ease and grace.

You immediately become open to all the fruits of excellence within you. You are in harmony with the breath of opportunity that lovingly brings to you IDEAS OF PLENTY, ideas that are grounded as thoughts of infinite possibility that guide you. Any thoughts of fear doubt and worry are just appearances that fade into the nothingness from where they came as you become more aware of the seeds of greatness that are pulling you towards a place of co-creating all you are seeking.

The universe is calling out to you, you hear the voice of unconditiona l love that is you and you become an example to yourself of what is actually possible. You are free to think in ways that bring your true self forward powerfully as the IDEAS OF PLENTY that now speak to you loudly and clearly encourage you step into more and more of your brilliance.

"In every moment there is an action you can take that will always support your vision, Connect with it and let your journey of possibility have its way with you."

I AM on purpose with the passion in my heart
I see clearly that I AM perfect expression of absolute possibility
I know that every experience is an opportunity for my growth and transformation
Life calls out to me beautifully
Love is my language of choice
Ideas of creativity innovate my journey
I AM Ready to have it ALL

It's your day...MAKE IT A GREAT ONE!
