It's official ... I've been accepted into a pretty exclusive mentorship and training program with author and transformational leader, Jack Canfield!
I set this as part of my 5 year plan a year ago. I had with no clear idea, given my life circumstances, how it would be possible. But instead of focusing on doubt, I trusted that my passion, purpose, vision and taking action would fuel the Universe to figure it out. And it did ... in ways that are beyond my comprehension!
Today, in just a year of applying Jack's Success Principles to my life and implementing his Daily Disciplines for Effortless Success, my goal is now a reality.
I first met Jack 30 years ago when I heard him deliver a talk at my first professional development conference. That day I purchased his very first cassette tape series called Self Esteem and Peak Performance, which helped me immensely in my early career days.
Several years ago, I was connected to work again during a session with a teen who cited Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul as being the one thing that helped her get through a very difficult period in her life.
I was connected once again to Jack's work in a synchronistic sort of way. I was kayaking with a friend of mine who told me about a book she was reading and suggested I check it out. I joked with her and told her that I was having trouble adjusting to my 50 year old eyes and didn't enjoy reading much because it forced me to admit that my eyesight was changing. She quickly suggested audio books and gave me a website to visit.
Seriously, I was planning to take care of the vision thing, but was also thinking that listening to audio books would be a very cool thing to do while kayaking. The first book that popped up on the audible.com website was The Success Principles: How to Get From Where You Are to Where You Want to Be. I was going through transition without clear direction and the book was being offered for free with a membership, so I downloaded it onto my computer and started listening to it.
An hour later, it was bright and sunny outside and I had the whole day off to spend on the lake. I went next door and consulted with my teenage neighbor .... my official technology consultant ... and checked into what MP3 player would be best for me to download the Success Principles so I could listen as I kayaked. In just a few minutes, I was off to town and within an hour I was back home syncing the book onto my new MP3 player while I got my kayaking gear ready.
Three months later, despite the fact that I didn't have the resources to support tuition, travel, etc., and as a result of an amazing sequence of manifesting magic, I was live at Breakthrough to Success, Jack's 7 day transformational workshop.
I've been living, teaching and coaching around his success principles ever since. Now, beginning in November, I will be working with Jack personally to help me get better at what I do and to support him in bringing his work to teens and adults in a much bigger way!
There's really something to be said about starting your days with gratitude, following your heart, being clear about what you want, taking consistent action toward your vision, harnessing the power of the subconscious mind and believing that miracles really do happen.
