Wow ... what a whirlwind this past month has been! I've spent alot of time standing fully present in the magic of the moments ... looking back in order to move ahead to what's next. Exciting times for sure!
I published my first book and, with the help of my teachers, mentors and coaches, launched it into best seller status. My own transformational story is now out there and my past is serving as inspiration to my readers to take new steps towards discovering their own magic. The feedback I am getting from family, friends and new followers is amazing. You can check it out here.
I am getting requests for media interviews, to teach live classes and to do personal coaching. I am even being encouraged and led to explore the possibility of turning my book into a movie to further expand my message.
As I look back on the process of publishing my story, I can now see clearly into the future of possibilities that I couldn't see when I was living it. Such a cool perspective!
Looking back to move ahead ...
After the launch, I traveled to Long Beach, California for another phenomenal week in the training room with Jack Canfield at his Success Principles Train the Trainer event; witnessing, experiencing and helping to facilitate the training of the next generation of human potential leaders. I was so excited to hear Jack and Patty, President of The Canfield Training Group, announce their commitment to train ONE MILLION people with Jack's Success Principles work so the trained could, in turn, train even more people. Based on my experience with Jack's work, the commitment to this goal would, indeed, create a ripple effect that has the potential to transform the planet!
As they made the announcement, I found myself back in the room at my first Jack Canfield event, Breakthrough to Success in 2010, when I knew that I needed to bring what I was learning to the teens and young adults I was working with. Since that day in 2010, I have further expanded my own breakthrough goal and taken steps to develop and pilot curriculum in several target groups. The results have been amazing and it is clear there is more work to be done to further spread the magic of this work.
I have a call with Jack's company to talk about how I can help train teachers and youth service workers to help bring this amazing work to young
Looking back to move ahead ...
And finally, I spent the July 4th holiday in the midst of the festivities, conversations and connections with the people and places where my story began and unfolded. I was able to gain even more resolution of my past, get more clear on the direction for my future and fully embrace what I need in order to support my day to day connection to the source of my inspiration.
Looking back to move ahead ... helping people find their magic!
Summer is a great time to slow down the pace, spend time in nature doing whatever it is you love to do and to reconnect with friends, family and ourselves.
I love being near the water; either relaxing by the water reading or on the water in my kayak spending some quiet time with the loons. Often, when I get quiet, I find myself reflecting on my life ... where I was, where I am, where I want to be. I used to push those thoughts away. I didn't feel empowered to do much about the way things were in my life. Gratefully, those days are no longer. Now I look forward to time to pause and reflect and welcome the thoughts that come through the quiet. I notice the feelings that go along with the thoughts and listen for the quiet whisper that leads me to the next right step, the next inspired action, the next miracle.
Today I'd like to share 3 tools to make your quiet reflection more intentional and help to support you in discovering what lies ahead. You will need paper and pen to complete these short exercises.
1) Three Questions???
Simply answer the following questions about your life as it is now:
What’s not so good?
What’s on your list to improve?
2) The Magic Wand
Simply answer the following questions:
If I had a Magic Wand and I could just touch you on the head and instantly make something happen to you, what would happen?
What would that feel like?
3) The Life Alignment Wheel
Print out the Life Alignment Wheel Worksheet from the link and follow the simple instructions.
In my own personal work as well as the work I do with clients, these three exercises often provide lots of information about where we are and where we'd like to be and give us a foundation for creating the life we truly want.
