"If your dream should fall and break into a thousand pieces ... pick one of those pieces up and begin again."

- Flavia Weedn
"I asked myself: 'What is so important that I want it for the rest of my life?'  I made a list of 10 things that I wanted out of my life, forever; and 10 things that I wanted around forever... Bamm!  Instant life plan.  And, it only took me 20 minutes."
- Coach Leonard

The Phenomenal, Focus Factor
What happens when you frequently, fail to focus?  Your dreams, goals and life ambitions increase in distance and eventually disappear.  A solution?  It's what I call The Phenomenal Focus Factor.  It's a methodology which helps you consistently focus on what's most important, and why it's most important.  These are the unsophisticated, deceptively powerful, key components for your success.  You can live your life being distracted by the unimportant things that will separate you from your destiny; or you can identify in advance what will make the most impact and realize the most rewarding, exciting and satisfying results.  Make a commitment to stay focus on what is most important.  It is an indispensable part of your daily success. 
No Worries!
Worries.  Look around.  Yikes!  They're everywhere!  Worrying is a waste of your precious energy.  Approach it with this mindset.  The following is a list of some dynamic strategies to help your worries disappear.
1)  Give them away.  Give them to God!
"Cast all your cares upon Him ..." 1Peter 5:7
2)  Discern the worst possible outcome and then proactively focus on, and then take the actions to revitalize the situation. 
3)  Send an email or fax.  Make a phone call, take a drive or "handle it" (whatever "it", is) in person.
4) Cultivate, then stay at the energy level which generates positive doing, thinking and feelings.
5)  Whenever you're faced with unforeseen or undesirable challenges, enthusiastically articulate and remind yourself: "No worries!"

The End of June: Where Did Your Quarters Go?
It's not often that a single quarter lasts a lifetime.  Just as there are four quarters in every dollar; there are four quarters in every year.  As of today, two of your quarters are now gone.
How did you spend them?  Did you invest them?  Were they misplaced?  Stolen?  Or did you lose them in a "cushion?"
At any rate, take in account you still have two quarters left.  Now, I know that doesn't sound like much to get you through the remainder of the year.  However, used wisely, you can earn a lifetime's worth of substantial, earned interest, and reaped dividends.
-Excerpt from the book, Seeds for Success by Fran Briggs

Don't Erase Your Soul From Your Face

During a query with actor/director/producer, Robert Redford, the interviewer mused out loud: since Redford was getting older, and showing pronounced, natural signs of aging, wouldn't he want to have some cosmetic surgery? Redford was clearly caught off guard by the question. Nevertheless, he looked intently in the interviewer's eyes, and then replied:
"Cosmetic surgery? Oh God, no! I wouldn't want to erase my soul from my face. I would rather like to think there is something about me that is somehow unique. I don't want to look like who I used to be. I want to look like who I am."
P.Qs: Power Questions
 P.Qs. - or Power Questions - are used to introduce your mind to new information and options.  They are intended to shift your paradigm, thoughts and beliefs ... towards the greater.  Ask yourself these three, empowering questions.  Then, immediately follow up with specific, supporting action.  The action you take serves as a catalyst for change that can transform your life and create a healthier, wealthier and more vibrant, you!
1.  What are three, specific things that I can passionately achieve today?
2.  Have I done the things necessary to attain my goals today?
3.  Are my thoughts, words and conversations moving me away, or pulling me towards my dreams and goals?


 Something to Think About

For decades, children all over the world have shouted, "Jordan!"  "Pele'!" "Gretsky!" "Bonds!"  "Montana!" ... just prior to performing incredible acts of athleticism.  With bold fervency, they imagined, then acted ... as if.  What do you suppose would happen if our youth were to shout, "Einstein!" before doing their homework or taking their exams?
