I am gearing up for an exciting week and would love for you to join me in the excitement!
My first novel launches on Amazon on Wednesday, June 12th! As I've shared, I set the goal to write a book at my first Jack Canfield event in August of 2010 with no idea what I would write about. In the fall of 2011, a pretty profound metaphysical experience with a friend and my neighbor launched me into 3 weeks of non-stop writing, which ultimately became the foundation of my new novel. I hope you will join me for Julia's transformational journey through challenges, changes, uncertainty and toward her true essence ... and I hope you will also share the link with friends! The link is http://www.matchmeetsthemetaphysical.com
Available soon!!! My interview with Mark, the real life medium who, through a shared metaphsycial experience, prompted me to write the book In this casual conversation we each share our perspectives on how a simple cup of tea turned into an event that has transformed the lives of many. Check back here to listen to the interview, which I hope to have ready within the next week or two.
The process of writing this book has led me to countless conversations with people of all ages, coming forth to ask me questions and share their own experiences and sometimes their fear, apprehension and skepticism about all things metaphysical. A few people have even asked me to coach them through their experiences and questions and help them determine how to develop and use their skills to better serve themselves and others.
Thus a new book project is in the works!
I'll be interviewing several psychics and asking them to share about their own psychic development as well as their advice about how to develop and use psychic abilities in day to day life.
I am also interested in stories ... stories of metaphysical experiences, encounters, intuitive flashes, etc. and how they have helped to change the course of life in a positive way. If you or someone you know would like to share a story for potential inclusion in the book, please email me at email@example.com. Confidentiality will be maintained and written permission to share your story will be obtained prior to being published.
In light of my fascination with the power of the subconscious mind and the need for people to be more aware of how it plays out in their lives, I published my first audio course, At the Waterline: Harnessing the Power of the Subconscious Mind. Check it out and feel free to share ... this is a great way to begin changing your life with conscious and subconscious intention!
And finally, I'm gearing up for another week in the training room with Jack Canfield and the 2013 Train the Trainer class. Looking forward to reconnecting with Jack, the Assisting Team and participants for another transformational week! Stay tuned for pearls and blog posts about this Long Beach experience!
I'm in the process of preparing to head to San Diego to spend another week with my teacher, mentor and coach, Jack Canfield. I first met Jack at a professional conference about 25 years ago and bought his very first program Self Esteem and Peak Performance, which helped me immensely in my early professional career .
We were reconnected a few years ago in a rather serendipitious way. I was kayaking with a friend who suggested that I read a book she had just finished. She offered to lend me the book, however I joked about having just turned 50 and was beginning to have some vision issues that made reading a lot less enjoyable. She suggested audible books and an MP3 player so I could listen while kayaking, knitting, driving, etc. Briliiant!
When I got home, I went to audible.com to check out the book she had recommended. I got sidetracked by a "join today and get this book free" offer. The free book was Jack Canfield's Success Principles. A few hours later I was walking along a country road listening to Jack on the new MP3 player my teen friend Liam helped me pick out and set up.
That was the beginning of major transformation for me. Next I purchased Jack's 30 day audio course and the next thing I knew, I had manifested tuition and expenses to cover my attendance at his Breakthrough to Success event in Scottsdale Arizona.
In 9 days I leave to begin a year long mentorship program with Jack in his Train the Trainer program. My goal is to incorporate the Success Principles in the work I do with women, young adults and teens to help them connect with life purpose and develop a plan to achieve their goals.
If 2012 is your year for transformation, join me in studying and incorporating Jack's work into your life and the lives of those you love!
_For the past year and a half, I have been an avid student of Jack Canfield's Success Principles. I am excited to share his vision for change and to continue working with Jack as my teacher, mentor and coach over the next year..
Feel free to contact me at 603-452-7350 or firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss how I can facilitate Success Principles workshops and trainings for your organization, agency, school.or youth group.
Facilitate Change by Empowering Others
by Jack Canfield
The first Success Principle I teach is to take 100 percent responsibility for your life. Never has this been more needed than now. Current societal challenges – such as the recession, decimation of the stock and real estate markets and high unemployment rate – have left many American living in a state of resignation and despair.
It is time to turn this situation around. Each of us has the power within us to create the life we want, the life we dream about, the life we were born to live. Each of us deserves to fulfill our full potential and manifest our true destiny. It is our birthright, but it must be claimed. It must be earned through hard work, and part of that work is first learning and then living by the time-tested and ageless principles that are guaranteed to bring about our desired results.
And you, even as a sole individual, can have a tremendous impact.
Pass Along the Lessons
Most of us did not learn the principles of success in school or at church. Only a few of us learned them at home. Instead, the principles of success have been passed down by mentors, teachers, coaches and more recently in books, seminars and audio programs.
As a student of success, you have much wisdom to offer the people in your life. The greatest gift you can give anyone is a gift of empowerment and love. What could be more loving than helping someone you care about get free from their limiting beliefs and ignorance about success, and empowering them to create the life that they truly want from the depths of their soul?
Imagine the Possibilities
What if everyone in your family gave up complaining, took full responsibility for themselves and their lives and started creating the life of their dreams? What if every one in your company practiced these principles? What if every member of your softball team approached life this way? What if every high school student in America knew these principles and put them into practice in class, on the playing field and in their social life? What if every man and woman in prison was to learn these valuable principles before they were released back into society? It would be a very different world.
Imagine a world where everyone would take 100% responsibility for their lives and the results they produce or don’t produce. Where everybody would be clear about their visions and their goals. Where nobody would fall victim to the criticism and abuse of others. Where everyone would persevere in the face of hardship and challenge.
Men and women would band together in teams to support each other to become all that they could be. People would ask for what they need and want and feel free to say no the requests of others when it is not right for them to respond with a yes. People would stop whining and complaining and get on with creating the life that they want. People would tell the truth and listen to each other with compassion because they know that peace, joy and prosperity would flourish if they did.
In short, the world would work!
Your Contribution Matters
The greatest contribution you can make to the world is to grow in self-awareness, self-realization and the power to manifest your own heartfelt dreams and desires. This is why Mahatma Gandhi advised, “Be the change you want to see in the world.”
As you shift, the people around you will notice and be inspired to model your actions. And as they shift, you’ll find that your little world becomes more of the place you dream it to be, full of support, peace and love.
The next greatest thing you can do is to actively facilitate the growth of others. But they are not the only ones who will benefit by your investment of time and energy in taking on the role of teacher.
Passing along your wisdom forces you to clarify your ideas, confront inconsistencies in your own thinking and more closely walk your talk. But most importantly, it requires you to read, study and speak the information over and over again. The resulting repetition reinforces your own learning.
And here’s another major benefit—the more you help other people succeed in life, the more they will want to help you succeed. If you’ve ever wondered why people who teach success strategies are so successful, here’s the answer: Because they have helped so many people get what they want, those they have helped naturally want to return the favor. The same will be true for you.
Help Create a Movement
I envision a world where everyone is inspired to believe in themselves and their abilities and is empowered to reach their full potential and realize all their dreams. I want the Success Principles taught in every school and university, and practiced in every small business and large corporation.
I’d love to have you join me in spreading the word and changing the world. If you feel inspired to share the Success Principles with your clients, students, employees and family, I’ve created a study guide that you can use to lead a free Success Principles study group. Please download a copy here.
If you’re ready to help us bring the principles to the world in a more structured way, consider joining my Train the Trainer program. Ideal for teachers, speakers, trainers, coaches, consultants, managers, business owners and other leaders, Train the Trainer gives you the chance to work personally with me for a full year.
