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!
I love this article by Jack Canfield titled Are You Living Your Passion?
Do yourself a favor and take some time to do the two exercises Jack suggests. I was fortunate to have done them in a live training with Jack awhile back.
The exercises are a great way to get connected to your passion and life purpose. The process is also the perfect place to start developing your goals and action plans that are in line with your purpose and will lead to you to joy and fulfillment!
I am grateful for the experience of going through the process with Jack and having the opportunity to watch him living his own passion and purpose while inspiring others to do the same. And I am grateful for my Mastermind Group, my coach and my support system who all help me continue taking action along my purposeful path!
The path is not always clear, what's before me or inside of me doesn't always make sense and I'm not always certain about what's next, however being clear about my passion and purpose for being on the planet always provides insight and direction that leades me to the next right step!
Thanks to the power of social media, email and cell phones, I've been getting daily updates, inspiration and golden nuggets from my friends and colleagues who are attending Breakthrough to Success with Jack Canfield.
It's amazing how the energy from BTS continues to live on in my heart and soul and in my daily life and how the transition and transformation toward living on purpose continues!
Here's one of my favorite nuggets from one of Jack's Success Coaches, Sean Smith. He shares the wisdom found in the music of Jana Stanfield ... the official musician of BTS. She calls herself the Queen of Heavy Mental ... and for very good reason!
I've adopted this song into my daily life as well as the work I do with both adults and teens:

I am an advocate of coaching. As a teen, I was a competitive athlete and depended on my coaches to help me improve specific skills, teach me the power of focus and support and inspire me to be the best I could be at whatever sport I was playing. In school, teachers and guidance counselors served as my academic coaches.
As an adult, I have worked with coaches who have helped me to improve my tennis and skiing skills, further develop my professional skills, sharpen my decision making skills, clarify my life purpose, set goals and develop and implement action and accountability plans..
Today, in addition to having a coach ... I am a coach. I provide 1:1 and group coaching opportunities to teens and adults in transition.
