"I used to want the words, 'she tried' on my tombstone.  Now I want, 'she did it!'"

- Katherine Dunham
Producer and Choreographer
When Times Get Tough
When times get "tough," see it as an opportunity to challenge yourself.  Stretch your  God-given, imagination.  Marvel in new creations. 
Beaumont, Texas.  Home of my good friends, Darlinda Wheeler and Gary Gallien.  They're siblings.  Like thousands of others, they are challenged by the aftermath of Hurricane Rita.  Although they were allowed to return to their respective homes, there was no electricity, and the municipal water was unfit for drinking.  The two spent their first candle-lit, night swatting mosquitos and waving makeshift fans in an unimaginable heat. 
"We're burning up in here," Gary told me, referring to the triple-digit temperature and humidity. "But, we're alive; and we are blessed."
Exactly 24 hours later, I called and checked in with them again.  Darlinda happily  reported that they received allocations of food and bottled water from Emergency Services.  But, what was that buzzing noise in the background? 
"Oh, I didn't tell you?  Gary (a seasoned mechanic) hooked up a fan to a car battery.  It's sitting in the front window of the house.  Fran, it is so cool in here!" 
My eyes welled up with tears.  A stretched imagination; a marvelous creation.
Indeed.  Gary, you, Darlinda, and your entire family ... are truly blessed.


What's That You Say?

Every word is a thought.  Every word is a seed. Remodel your vocabulary and you'll remodel your health, wealth and your entire, self!

Your Subconscious Mind
Your subconscious mind does not argue with you.  It accepts what your conscious mind decrees.  If you say, "I can't afford it," your subconscious mind works to make it true.  Select a better thought; say, "I'll buy it.  I accept this in my mind."
-Dr. Joseph Murphy, Author of, Your Subconscious Mind

Goal BIG!

Did you know that it takes the same amount of energy to set small, mediocre, mundane, and low-vibrancy goals, as it does to set big, exciting, challenging and life-transforming goals?  If you're gonna goal, don't "goal small."  

"Goal BIG!" 

Attach an Acute Sense of Urgency

Imagine attaching an acute sense of urgency to all of your business and personal endeavors.  No doubt, you would catapult your career and optimize your life.  You see, the faster you work and "handle your business," the faster you'll finish your projects ... the sooner you'll experience success and have more time, for you.


Just 3 More Months

There are only 3 more months in 2005 to achieve what you set out to achieve.  How are you doing?  Really?  No worries!  You still have 
plenty of time.  Commit to one, really BIG goal you seek to accomplish between 10/1/2005 and 12/31/2005.  Use the interactive form below to type in your BIG goal, now.  These fields are live and in real time!
Type "Test" - no - type "Real" in a blank field now, and finish today.
Be sure to print this, and check your progress, weekly.  Resolve that by, or before the end of 2005, you will reach ... your BIG goal!
 (December 31, 2005 or earlier)
Quantifiable details (pounds lost, times per week, dollars per month, miles ran per day, etc.) How will you know when you attained it?
Personal motivation statement (why this goal?) benefits, and tangible rewards. How will you feel?  How will you look?  Where will you be?
