It's time to hone in on your goals and review your targets and respective strategies to ensure that you get it all done.  This month is filled with holidays, gatherings, vacations, family reunions and year end commitments. It's easy to be distracted -- including being distracted from taking the time for you and what you originally set out to do.

As 2005 comes to an end, take time for an examination and introspection of your life. What kind of "place" are you in right now?  Do you feel vibrant and optimistic?  If you could experience 2006 exactly how you designed, what would it look like?  Write to me and tell me about your vision and projections for the next 12 months.  In the interim live each day so it reflects, what you expect.     

You know, every day I get to read from individuals who share how this newszine is changing their life for the greater.  It is heart-felt.  It has been another tremendous year of growth.  Thank you for all of your support.  You are most appreciated. 

Believing with you for Happy Holidays and a very prosperous 2006!


You're Invited
I am raising funds for The Don't Think Like an Elephant! Reading Tour, and the Phoenix, Arizona Children's Hospital, respectively.  I am inviting you to: visit the online fundraising page, read all about the exciting logistics, and make a donation.  I promise.  It's really easy. 
Here is the page:
All donations are secure and will be distributed to The Don't Think Like an Elephant National Reading Tour and the Phoenix Children's Hospital.  Your support is greatly appreciated.  Please join us in supporting a fabulous cause, times two!
Create Your Vision
Create your vision.  Ignite, and then "map out" your purpose.  Know that all obstacles and disappointments along your journey are part of a bigger plan.  Keep moving, and always keep your Big picture in front.
Don't  Overlook Your Opportunities
Akio Morita, the co-founder of Sony, tells a story about two salesmen.  They were sent to a remote island in the Pacific to sell shoes. Immediately after the pair arrived, one of them sent an urgent message back to his head office: "No one wears shoes here. We can dominate the market! Send all possible stock!"  The second salesman wired: "No prospect of sales. Natives do not wear shoes."
Make the most of your opportunities. Be the helping hand and put your best foot forward. You'll soon discover that a litany of opportunities will keep coming your way!  Decree 2006 the year of overflow and opportunity ... Stay focused on all that which is good and empowering, and I'll continue to provide the spark!

Be a Bigger Part of the Whole
When facing a challenge as a member of a team,spend most of the time on the solution - not the problem. Be a leader; direct the focus away from, "Where did we go wrong?"  "What didn't work?" Or, "Who's not doing their part?"  If valuable time is being wasted by repeating, rehashing or reframing repeatedly ... remind your team that: "Re did that already!"  Here's how to keep it real simple.  Identify exactly what your team expects to accomplish, how it will be accomplished and, in what time frame.  Then, take the necessary steps and immediately begin moving in that direction ... together.  
Believing Makes it So
Boldacious believing can catapult you towards your objectives and add tremendous value to your most cherished ambitions. Before year's end, schedule time to believe upon these things.
  • The exciting goals will you accomplish next year
  • The people and things you desire to be a part of your life 
  • The beautiful places you will go 
  • The things you will learn 
  • The massive amount of money you will earn 
  • Exactly what you will give 
  • The exciting life you will live 
To Your Health
A substitute for aspirin
Hold the aspirin.  Recently, researchers in Germany used pineapple in a study for finding an alternative for aspirin.  Findings suggested that an enzyme found in pineapple (bromelain) works as well as aspirin in the relief of muscle pain and swelling.  This is a delicious way to naturally rid yourself of pain.  For best results, eat three, 5 ounce servings of fresh pineapple a day.
