A Touch of G-Force

How often do you tap into G-Force: Grace and Gratitude to fuel your life?  When you have this powerful pair pulling for you, you’re able to move forward with more ease… and experience life at new heights.

What I’ve discovered over the years is that Grace and Gratitude appear in concert. Whenever I take the time to observe, acknowledge, recognize and appreciate what “is” . . . the energy of Gratitude calls in Grace.

Have you ever had a time in your life when things came together easily and effortlessly?  It may have felt like the details were being taken care of behind the scenes. All you had to do was show up. That’s Grace at play!

The energy of Grace is available to each and every one of us at any given moment.  Grace is an assisting energy that steps in at the perfect time, with the perfect solution and just the right resources. It’s particularly helpful to call upon Grace when you’re in need of divine intervention.  The elegance of Grace allows us to be in touch with all that is . . . the abundance of life!

The powerful partnership of Grace and Gratitude has helped me to wake up and pay attention to the signs, symbols, and messages that lead to a richer, more fulfilling, and success-full life.  This partnership has in turn allowed me to help others see the meaning and purpose behind what appear to be random, everyday events that are, in fact, signposts that guide and direct us to experience life fully.  Let the G-Force be with you!!

On the Shoulders of Giants!

If you’re serious about growing your business and thinking about selecting a business coach who’s more of a mentor – check out the following tips from my friend, colleague, and today’s guest blogger Chris Makell.    Chris is an authentic leader, a “walk the talk” mentor and someone who’s extraordinary at coaching individuals who are ready to “Think Big . . . Play Bigger!” (She knows what she’s talking about.  Thanks to Chris’ coaching and mentoring,  I was able to tune-up my coaching program and approach, to successfully attract high-level clients within days of our coaching session.) It’s an absolute honor to share Chris Makell’s wisdom with you.

“For the past 5 years, I’ve invested in classroom training, personal coaching and home study programs to grow my skills and expertise as a coach. I’ve also worked with personal coaches to guide me in pursuing excellence as a coach and to develop the “business owner” skills rarely taught in coaching schools. I can count the number of coaches I’ve worked with on one hand and I’m proud to say that each time I’ve “grown up” just a little bit more.

Each coach brought me to a new level of learning about my talents and abilities to focus my coaching business and myself. All were pretty solid in their own talents and abilities – or I wouldn’t have worked with them. Well, except for one – there’s always one. And by the way, that one was absolutely necessary. They teach you what to look out for in the future. So it was a good learning experience, even though it wasn’t as joyful…

And now, I’m looking at my other hand, counting my new coach, who is more of a mentor. This was a very thoughtful decision, on both our parts, made primarily based on following this mentor/coach for about a year before attending one of his workshops. There I got to see and experience him “up close and personal”. And I have to say this is different – for a lot of reasons, but mostly because I am now “grown up” enough to better select “the giant on whose shoulders I want to stand!”

Based on this experience, I want to share a few tips with you, so that you can save time and money when searching for and selecting the mentor/coach who can help you grow and create a more successful life and/or business!

Tip #1 – Follow them around

Now, I don’t mean stalk them that could get you some legal coaching. What I mean is, subscribe to their newsletter, if they have one – and if they don’t you may want to question how they stay in touch with you, so that you can learn more from them. You want to have or hear a consistent “ping” from a coach or mentor so that you can assess their style, where they stand and how they think. Then you can decide if they can deliver what you need. Also, if they offer free teleseminars or teleclasses, join in and listen, then you’ll hear them in action and decide if you like what you hear.

Tip #2 – Try them out and see how they fit

You know those really comfortable shoes you just love to wear when you’re in for a long day? You just know you’re going to wear these shoes when you are traveling, racing through the airport, or in that all day meeting that leads to dinner, etc. Well, you should try out the coach/mentor’s products, workshops, and offerings to see if they’re comfortable for the long journey you’re on, in building your business. I have purchased home study programs and referred back to them years later for tips – that’s comfort.  You want to know if they can help you increase your business by going deeper and investing in an entry level program or product, that gives you a better experience than just the free “goodies”.

Tip #3 – Does it feels right, for where you want to go?

Investing in yourself by working with a mentor/coach is serious business and you want to feel it’s right for you. So use tips 1 & 2 to help you get a good feel for this person.

Ask yourself:

–       Are they consistent?

–       Do they say things that make sense to you?

–       Are they clear and give you action you can ACTUALLY take?

–       And most important, are they where you WANT to go?

You see that last question is probably the biggest question you have to answer for yourself and your business. Are THEY where you want to go? Because you want someone to pull you forward to the lifestyle and business you want to lead. Otherwise, you’ll likely move forward, but at a much slower pace and with a little more pain.

Once you’ve decided where you want to go in your life or business, why not take advantage of those who have gone before you. Why not, stand on the shoulders of giants and get yourself there faster?”

Economy of Thought . . . How to Create New Wealth

If you’re looking for sound investment advice from a well-respected wise source, you have come to the right place.  The following article recently appeared in Cheryl Richardson’s newsletter and caught my attention.  As I read the article my head kept bobbing yes and it put a huge smile on my face.   That’s all I needed to know … a sure sign this is meant to be shared with you.  Enjoy!
“This morning, I sat on my deck in the sun, thinking about the day and what I would write in this week’s newsletter. After enjoying a period of silence, I picked up one of the “daily inspiration” books that I often read to start the day on the right foot. I closed my eyes, picked a page at random and instantly knew I was meant to share the passage with you.

This message is from the Universe.  Actually it’s from the book, “Notes from the Universe” by Mike Dooley, and here’s what the pages held…

Some Investment Advice from the Universe
“Did you follow your hunches during the 90’s in the stock market? Did you hear what I was telling you about huge yields in real estate? Did you “stumble” across those itty-bitty public companies with stock offerings that made penny investors millionaires?

Phew, I was slammed doling out golden opportunities to anyone I could reach. It became kind of a hobby, you know, to fill in the gaps of boredom that go along with being the Universe.

Truthfully, though, you didn’t miss a thing. Those fortunes were chicken feed compared to what I offer on a full-time basis through my day job. Are you ready for real opportunity? Do you even have room for the returns? No, you don’t. But that’s a good problem.

Thought. That’s right. Thought is the greatest vehicle of all time for burying one’s self, family, and friends in wealth and abundance – no matter what’s going on with the economy.

Thoughts have their own economy, and now is a super-great time to get in on the ground floor. With my patented trade secrets, I can take any old invisible thought of yours and turn it into a mine of gold, a mountain of cash, a well of prosperity.

It’s not too late! The best is yet to come. Invest in thought, follow your hunches, and live the life of your dreams.

Public disclosure: This offer is irrevocable. You’re now an investor whether you know it or not. All of your thoughts will become things. No lawyers can help you.  Save yourself; choose the good ones.”

I smiled as I closed the book remembering the days when I believed the idea that “thought creates reality” was a foolish and far-fetched notion. But then I looked around at my life, felt the peace in my heart from my good thoughts, and breathed a sigh of relief. Thank goodness I was willing to keep an open mind.”
