Feature We ARE The Creation by Dee Wallace Making “it” happen is what our society and consciousness has valued most. It has been our primary way of defining ourselves in a world of competition and success evaluation. It has also been our undoing because of the incorrect understanding that the creation process is outside of the Self. We have become a society of pushers, manipulators, and overachievers, believing that the “harder we work” and if we “never give up” we succeed. And we succeed better. It is the money and the homes and the cars that have idealized whether we have made it happen, or not. On the other hand, those of us on a spiritual quest to expand our consciousness, have also fallen folly to false beliefs and directions. Somehow “the meek shall inherit the earth” became “give yourself up for very little because you shouldn’t want more than you need.” Spirituality and money became enemies. Spirituality always got the white hat and the superman cape, and money always rode in on the dark horse. I often suggest to people in my seminars to put a big pile of money in the middle of the floor and watch all the bad things it does! Money and success have no vibration other than what we assign to them through our beliefs and fears. And of course incorrect religious, societal , genetic, and parental teachings. Bottom line, we all like money and success. We all want them. And it’s time to acknowledge that, accept it, and stop feeling guilty for what makes us feel good and powerful. We all want to make things happen: health, money, accomplishments, relationships etc.. What we don’t realize is that we want these things for the EXPERIENCES of love, bliss,

freedom, security, and self-worth that they provide. And because of this, we assume we must have the things that cause the experiences, instead of being the experiences that result, often, in the things. We just have it, as my mother would say, ”bassakward.” There really is something that comes first in the creation of the chicken or the egg: Us. We must be born in the creation of Us first. We must decide who and what the experience of Us is, and then take that into all we want to make happen. Otherwise, the true reality of who we are and our definition of Self is continually created by anyone and anything outside of our choice. We are at the whim of everything we are not. We all know people who have enough money in the reality of the world. But in their reality, they are always living in lack and worry. Therefore, they are in the rat maze of never ending want, because until they can EXPERIENCE having, they can never know they have, and thus always want more. Until they can be, in their “Beingness,” the knowing and experience of money/abundance/security, nothing outside will create that experience for them, no matter how hard they look for that cheese. No matter how many dollars they acquire. Until they create themselves, they become the created upon by all outside of their own Being. Until you can feel, experience and embrace wellness, your experience keeps taking you back to the disease, which creates more of what you don’t want. So the cycle looks like this: I don’t want to be sick/I keep experiencing sick/I keep focused on getting rid of the sick/I can never experience wellness/I can’t create wellness because I won’t experience it first. This is the law: we create from

our reality and experience within, so it makes sense to hold yourself focused and vibrating in that experience REGARDLESS of what is showing up in the physical world. And then the physical world must change. Look to your beliefs about all that you are wanting to make happen: Do you deserve it? Believe it is possible? Believe you know how to create it? Have the expertise to create it? Are you willing to receive the abundance and notoriety when you DO receive it? Ponder any beliefs that might be in the creation of you feeling freedom/ joy/bliss/unconditional love/peace/ grace around your desires. Because, ”As you believe, it will be delivered unto you.” We keep trying to make it happen Out There, when the real creation is In Here. How can we create money if we are judging it? How can we create life delivering to us if we don’t trust the Universe? How can we ever be absent from fear when we believe things just “happen”, that we have no control or responsibility in our own happening? We ARE the creation. The first creation. “As within, so without.” If we want money, we must BE money, and realize the faulty beliefs about money that may be thwarting our embrace of it. We must BE freedom, so that every subject in our lives reflect ‘the beingness” that we are. We must BE unconditional love, so that all our creations outside of ourselves must match unconditional love. We are the mirror that reflects out and magnetizes all back to our realities. So, 1) see what you don’t want, 2) choose to direct the positive opposite, 3) focus only on that, 4) experience what that FEELS like to have and be,

Feature 5) consciously direct and decide to create that in you as the experience of you, 6) let go and let the Universe create for you and 7) stay focused. No matter what. You are the only thing responsible for “making it happen.” And the creation of that begins within you. Source can only respond to your clear direction, choice, and decision. It hears those things through your feelings, thoughts, and actions. See the Universe existing within you, for that, indeed, is where it is. And have fun—the Universe loves to play!

Spring Forward by Erin Crowe Ah springtime. The birds are chirping, the sun is shining and gone are the days when you can hide behind bulky sweaters and sweatpants. If you’re like most Americans, you’ve probably indulged in a few too many cookies and cocktails this holiday season. But fear not my friends, I have some great advice to help you shed those extra few pounds that is quick, easy and will have you strutting your stuff in no time. If this is the first time you’ve ever considered getting in shape, bravo on taking the first step! If you’re someone who just fell off the wagon over the holidays, join the club. I’m here to get us back on together. What I have to offer is not some difficult and complicated process. Losing weight is simple if you put your mind to it. Simply making that commitment and following through with it is the key ingredient to losing weight and keeping it off. Most people will agree that working out is not their favorite thing in the world, so my first piece of advice is find a buddy; someone to share the pain with. Doing this is advantageous in a few ways. For one, you won’t have to brave that “how on earth do I even work this machine” feeling alone. I know that when I go to the gym I feel downright intimidated to go up to a machine, read the label, find and adjust the levers, gadgets, etc. With a buddy you can work through these (irrational) fears together, enabling you to concentrate on what you’re really there for. Secondly, it is much easier to bail out on yourself than it is to bail out on your new pal. By choosing a reliable buddy, you’re stacking the deck in both of your favors. Now, find out what you like to do and go do it. Whether it’s walking, running, biking, skiing, rollerblading, or mountain climbing, choose your activity and go do

it. If the great outdoors isn’t your thing, fear not, there are plenty of ways to feel the burn in the A/C. Try taking a step class at the gym. You will burn more calories than you can even imagine, and (believe it or not) it’s really fun and a great way to meet people who are striving toward the same goals.

Eat as much colorful food as you can. Richly colored fruits and veggies have the greatest amount of nutrients and are essential to a healthy body. In fact, fruits and veggies work together to produce a unique effect on fighting cancer and other diseases.

Dancing In The Rain “Making Happiness Happen” by Judy Winkler When my children were young, we led an active, outdoor life. The girls, Patricia and Amanda, embraced unexpected adventures, surprises and seemed to flow easily with changes. They laughed the hardest when the unexpected happened. Conversely, my son, David, held a strong vision of how he expected things to look. Because he was sensitive to changes and transitions, he didn’t leap into new adventures. When David was five years old, I remember Amanda, David, their dad and I set out on a family hike in a local canyon. Light rain began to fall. David became uncomfortable and more upset with each step. We kept hiking. As we sloshed on, I told them about their older sister, Patricia, who loved summer rains. At the first sign of a warm rain, we would put on our bathing suits and dash into the backyard to dance in the rain. I told them how she would jump into puddles, spin in circles, lap the raindrops as they fell and squeal with delight as she danced. David had a vision of how the weather was supposed to be on our hike and no story helped him accept was he was experiencing, which was feeling cold and wet. Each of us has a vision of how we expect situations to be. We have dreams about the future. We hold a picture of how we want things to turn out – perhaps it is a noteworthy accomplishment, a vocation, a large family, exotic travel, a dream car, a perfect home, ideal community, and even our final outcome, which is how we want to be remembered when we

die, including all the contributions we want to make during our lifetime. Life doesn’t always turn out the way we expect or even plan. We’ve all heard stories about promising athletes who are injured and unable to realize their dreams. Accidents and illnesses are be predictable. We have heard stories about how financial challenges change educational aspirations for some and do not deter others. As a life coach, most often, I see clients when they get stuck in fear and don’t have tools to keep moving forward toward their goals. My job is to offer tools and wisdom so dreams can be realized. Last year I eagerly planned a trip to visit my granddaughter. Because she wasn’t feeling well, the trip was cancelled at the last minute. Although I was disappointed, I sensed that there was an important reason why I stayed in town. The next day I found the answers: I got a frantic call from a Nursing Professor at a huge teaching hospital, who said her speaker had just cancelled and asked if I could step in and present a 1-1/2-hour class to graduating nurses the next day. I said yes. I created a talk on Extreme Self Care. I gave the nurses specific tools they could use to care for themselves while serving others. I gave them tools to fuel them, shift their energy, create safety nets if they begin to fall, methods to stay balanced , ways to set boundaries, and to care for themselves first so they can be there for others. The talk was so valuable and well received, that I was asked if I would present this class to each graduating class. Isn’t this a classic example of dancing in the rain?

Desires, dreams, and goals are important and wonderful. However, when you get off course, enjoy the scenery. Find the good, the joy, and the beauty where you are. Either it will refresh you so you can continue on your path, or you may find the value and joy of lingering right where you are. This is what I know: • Wherever I am is good and I’m supposed to be here • My experience is directly related to my acceptance of it • The story I tell myself makes all the difference • I look for the blessings in everything. • I find ways to give my best wherever I am • Each of us can make a difference in the lives of others • When storms come, learn to dance in the rain. Life will be easier and so much more fun.

Article Creating A Winning Strategy by Priscilla V. Marotta, Ph.D. As a clinical psychologist, I have the opportunity to observe the behaviors that help people achieve goals in their lives and what derails them. Establishing and reaching your life goals are keys to the quality of your life. As you enter the year of 2011, I hope the following program guidelines help you reach your goals. The first part of the program is recognizing that “making it happen” in your life requires thoughtful goal setting. Each of us needs to take the time to reflect and plan our lives. It is very easy to have life quickly pass us by, while we are busy with our daily routines. Daily living gets in the way of creating a quality life. Step one of “making it happen” is taking the time to identify the goals you want to reach. This takes time, input from others, and a realistic assessment of your ability to reach the goals. Many times, intermediate goals need to be established before you reach your final goal. Step two is developing a support network to assist in reaching the goal. Every individual benefits from resources, encouragement, and having others cheer you on in your efforts. Many times goals are not reached because this crucial step is skipped. As independent as you may be, no goals are reached without utilizing outside resources and receiving the needed emotional support. Your support network is crucial to both your psychological well being and to your success. As you read this, if you do not have an adequate support network, establishing this network is a necessary intermediate goal! Step three is engaging your positive power skills. What are positive power skills? Positive power skills

14

www.kandeeg.com

are not power over others but power with others. Positive power skills are having clarity on your goals and investing the time and energy to reach your goals. When you are utilizing positive power skills, you will have focus and cannot be derailed by others. Many times, our goals are not reached because of the demands of others. “Making it happen” requires that you work with others and cooperate with others; however, you also must set the necessary boundaries and limits to achieve your goals. Too often, individuals are side tracked by being people-pleasers, and not setting adequate limits. Many individuals give their positive power to others to avoid conflict and to gain the approval of others. It is essential to maintain your focus to reach your goals. How does one keep or reclaim their positive power? Recognize that you give your power away to others when you do not set limits and do not establish priorities. The people that are members of your support network should be one of your priorities. Your support network helps you achieve your goals and should receive most of your time and energy. Moreover, identify the people and situations that are toxic, deplete your energy, and derail you. These are the people and situations that you need to avoid or remove from your life. You cannot “make it happen” if you have toxic people and situations in your life. Also, maintain your own internal messages of your abilities, your strengths, and your goals. You need to have a program of internal affirmation that will assist you in overcoming challenges and facilitate you reaching your goals. Your self-belief will propel you

towards your goals. Let us review. First, you established your goals. Second, you created and maintained a support network. Third, you developed an understanding of positive power skills and took the steps needed to power-up to reach your goals. What is next? Next, is the crucial fourth step, you need to develop a detailed strategy. What is a detailed strategy? This is a multi-layered process of analyzing what are the necessary ingredients to reach your goals. If you are creating a meal, you gather all the necessary ingredients, know the time necessary for preparation, set the table, and then cook the meal. In order to “make it happen”, you need to develop the skills needed to reach your goal, set the stage, and put in the necessary time. Too often, goals are left floating in the air, unreachable because a specific strategy has not been developed. In developing a detailed strategy, you can utilize the resources of other professionals. When you utilize many resources, you increase your chances of reaching your goals. Individuals who have utilized this program have reached their goals. I am sending you heartfelt wishes that you reach your goals and increase the quality of your life in 2011!

Manifest Away

Prosperity, in all its incarnations, comes from the inside.

by Ridgely Goldsborough

How it shows up and decorates our world, well, that depends on us.

The sun crept over the horizon and lodged itself above the coastline, bathing the beach in a comfortable, morning glow.

brings in $250,000 in the same period ten-fold wiser yet?

Solitary clouds dotted the backdrop, lazy lollygaggers moseying across the sky, unhurried, white-haired philosophers gazing down at the busyness below.

How does a crammed household full of hand-me-down furniture and kids piled upon kids, share joyous meals of Mac and Cheese seasoned with laughter, even though the rent deadline has long since passed?

I raced a pair of dragonflies down the road, glanced at the workers finishing the roof of another million-dollar home, noticed the new fishing boat parked in the driveway of one of the waterfront rentals. Abundance everywhere, abundance of beauty, abundance of fortune. Another day in paradise. For me, this poses a disturbingly fascinating question.

That makes no sense.

The mind boggles and scrambles. Let’s look at the environment. The tide ebbs and flows. Winter turns to spring. Summer crops become fall plantings. The moon comes out at night and has since time immemorial.

Why some yes and some no? Why do the builders of luxury high-rise condos live in dilapidated trailers? On the other hand, why does material wealth cause such lack in relationships? No one can deny our universe’s resilience, its amazing regenerative powers and continued ability to provide. Flowers grow, vibrant, colorful, glorious, mere minutes after the tornado blows through or the floodwaters recede. We live surrounded by an endless fountain of plenty. How does it all flow? Can the person that makes $25,000 a month be ten times smarter than a $2,500 earner, and the financier that

Let’s look at the money thing. Some of us have a bunch, some of us don’t. Some of us make a lot, some of us barely scrape by. Unless you live on a mountaintop, a quick spin around the neighborhood reveals varying bank account sizes without much of an impact on the happiness quotient. Those who sit in first class more often seem grumpier than the rest of us in coach. Go figure. Without positing a solution, let’s at least state the obvious:

I believe that we can learn the skill sets to create wealth, though the discipline must come from inside. Most of us have the muscles to wear a smile, though the impetus emanates from inside. Trappings bring only fleeting glee, while lasting joy grows from the heart, a living, breathing, active organism that can only survive in one place—inside. How much effort do you put into your inner life, seeding, nurturing, cultivating, harvesting and celebrating your own bounty? If we judge our tree by the fruit it bears, then only you decide whether your current harvest matches your expectations. If not, you know where to turn. That’s A View From The Ridge…

Author and international speaker, Ridgely Goldsborough, known in the hispanic market as Richeli, has spent the last 20 years as an expert in personal growth and development. Much like Napoleon Hill did in the early part of the last century, Ridgely has interviewed titans of business and industry in person, for his television show and on the radio. Based on the principles learned from these interviews and his own personal journey, Ridgely continues to write books and create audio and video programs to help us all on our journey to success.

Riches Are Not The Result Of Hard Work Riches Are The Result Of Right Thinking. by Don Boyer My mentor told me many years ago that the only difference between a rich man and a poor man is his method of thinking. It took me almost 10 years to comprehend and understand this golden nugget, but when I did it made me wealthy. You see, at the time my mentor told me that statement I was as broke and upside down as one could get. My thoughts to what my mentor had told me were; “How in the world am I suppose to know how a millionaire thinks?” Let me shave off ten years of deep contemplation for you and give you the answer to that question. A rich person thinks on the things they want and a poor person always thinks on what they do not want. Example of a poor mans thinking: “I hate my job” “there is never enough money” “I don’t want to live in this small house” “I don’t want to be in debt” and the list goes on daily in their mind over and over again. What does this kind of thinking produce? The very things they do not want. This has to happen because of the great law of attraction. The law of attraction brings into our life everything we constantly think about, good, bad or indifferent. If you want to become rich, base your daily thinking on your dreams not on your current reality. Example of a rich mans thinking: “I am so thankful and grateful of all the wealth I now have, for driving the car of my dreams, living a life of luxury and having all the best life has to offer”. Please note that this

is the thinking that went on in their minds before those things appeared in thier life. If you want to change the circumstances and conditions in your life, it starts by changing the thinking that goes on in your head. You must think about the things you want not things you have. If you think about all the things you have (which is most likely all the things you don’t want) you will keep creating more of it. Forget about what you have and start thinking daily of what you want. This is the key to all success, the key to getting everything you want. As hard as it may be to believe and grasp, the truth is that riches are not the result of hard work but the result of right thinking. Some of the hardest working people in the world are the poorest people in the world. Hard work and riches do not make an equation, yet that is the illusion that the masses work under. If you want to become wealthy you must drop the belief system of thinking that working hard is going to make you rich. There is a massive difference between working hard and working with passion. Poor people work hard, rich people work with passion. What is the difference between hard work and passion? That is an interesting thing because both have very similar characteristics such as long hours, government taxation and a 40-70 year commitment. But here is the difference: Hard work will keep you broke, destroy your health, and keep you laboring at something you hate.

Passion on the other hand can make you rich, keep you rich and add vigor and health to your life while you have the time of your life. Most rich people put in longer hours than poor people yet they cannot tell the difference between work and play, they cannot tell if they are working or on vacation. In fact, for most wealthy people, their passion is their vacation and often leads them to exotic places. You see this ties into another thing my millionaire mentor told me… “There is an easy way and a hard way to do everything in life” The hard way which unfortunately is what the masses are doing is to try and do everything yourself to reach your dreams and goals. I am a firm believer in personal development and I have been a student of it for 30 years. Some of my friends are the biggest names in the industry, however, the skills you learn in personal growth is not designed to create (wealth, success, happiness) but to manage that which you create through the law of attraction, which by the way is doing it the easy way! Most people work to make success happen with hard work. But most of the time that plan only produces mediocre results at best along with an abundance of frustration and disappointment. Not a good plan to be on but that is the exact plan of 97% of all people. Will that kind of plan make you rich? No, but if you are one of the rare ones to accumulate wealth under that plan, just about the time you could enjoy that wealth, all the years of hard

Riches are not the result of hard work Riches are the result of right thinking. (continued) work and toil will take its toll on your health and you will find yourself on your way to the morgue. What is the easy way? The easy way is learning how to use the law of attraction on purpose and for your advantage. Most people complicate this law to such a degree they cannot understand it. But here it is plain and simple. Everyday the law of attraction is working in your life. It is bringing everything to you in your life. All the conditions, circumstances, events and people you find in your life are brought there by this great law. You may think that life just brings you random acts of events and that you just respond to them accordingly. However, that is not how it works, it just seems that way. The law of attraction works by bringing to us everything we think meditate and focus on. If those thoughts are on the things we do not want, the law brings those things. If we think and focus on the things we want, the law brings us those things as well. It is like planting a seed in the ground. The ground does not care nor determine what kind of seed we plant; its job is to produce the seed after its kind. Your job is just to figure out what you want, not how you are going to get it. And it is the job of the universe or law of attraction to bring it to us. It is that simple and that easy. Do you sweat, fret and fear when you plant a seed that the ground might not do its job? Of course not, you plant the seed and move on; it is not your job to make the seed grow. God created laws to do the hard part, and gave us the easy

part! But of course the average person cannot accept that this is how life works and chooses to work himself to the bone hoping that this trail will lead him to his dream. You have no control over people and what they say or do but what you do have complete control over are your thoughts. And your thoughts are what create everything in your life. Here is a golden truth nugget that may cause your mental noodle to smoke… It is not doing certain things but doing things a certain way that will make you rich. It is not the kind of profession or line of work you do that brings riches. People prosper and fail in every type of business under the exact same conditions and in the exact same location. You can become rich in any field or line of work. It is not the kind of work you do, but how you do that kind of work. I remember years ago this one salesman I knew that made more money than anyone else in the company. Yet he worked less than anyone in the company. He did not do any cold calling or prospecting and when everyone else was on the phone killing themselves trying to make appointments he would be in his office with his feet on his desk reading Think and Grow Rich. It was amazing…when asked how he gets customers to come to him he would smile and just say, “I have a secret, I do it the easy way. I just think about what I want and it shows up”.

Until you understand how the law of attraction works and operates, doing things the easy way will seem crazy, completely unrealistic and total fantasy. The other option is, work yourself into the ground, complain about your circumstances and do it the hard way. And that is exactly what most people do. As one man told me, “No I am not happy with the conditions and results in my life, but hell if I will believe in all that law of attraction stuff”. This poor soul will keep suffering and struggling not because he has to, but because he has a peanut for a brain! So I ask you, do you want to do it the hard way or the easy way? The choice is yours. If you keep thinking like you have been you are going to produce more of what you have. And that is ok if it is bringing you all the things you want in life. But if you find your life is filled with all the things you do not want and very little of things you do want, there is an easy way out. Just make a daily commitment to only think, focus and concentrate on al the things you want and ignore the things you currently have. You have to have the things you want in your head before you will ever have them in your hand. Don Boyer is an outstanding public speaker and published author.

Dream Big Showcase Feature Eat. Drink. Repeat. An Expose On One Of South Florida’s Most Talented Chefs By Erin Crowe, Staff Writer Only 32 years old, Nikki Pettineo has quite the impressive track record. She has experience catering private parties, owning and running a successful restaurant and has even customized diets for the rich and famous. After graduating high school, Nikki spent some time bartending and working in restaurants. At the age of 25, she really began to ponder what she was passionate about and it didn’t take long for the answer to reveal itself. Nikki always loved cooking and entertaining, and decided to go to culinary school to try her hand at what was soon to be her full-time career. She applied and was accepted to Johnson and Wales Culinary School, and despite the long hours (and long commute), Nikki attended school by day and bartended by night to pay her way. She was 100 percent committed to her vision of becoming a chef. “I paid attention. I took it seriously. I got good grades and put a lot of effort into it”, she explained. “I woke up at 5 a.m. to drive to Miami, went to school all day, then drove back to Ft. Lauderdale to work until 1 a.m. each morning.”

He was a single guy and he wanted home cooked meals, perfectly customized for his busy pigskin-slinging schedule. As she became more known as a chef, more clients began to find her, some of which had special dietary needs. Because she wanted to help her clients, she did some research about nutrition and connected with nutritionists she could work with. She then created a seamless blend of customized nutrition and notjust-boiled-salmon-with-no-salt flavor for all of her clients’ specific needs. Her plan was simple: “It was my job to find out what each client’s eating habits was.” The nutritionist would set the parameters of the diet and Nikki would design it around their eating habits.” I designed a diet to fit each client like a glove. It would be second nature to each of them; they wouldn’t even have to think about what they were supposed to eat.” Suddenly a new opportunity presented

itself. Chef Nikki was given the chance to open a small restaurant in Sunrise, one where she could do her catering and cook for her clients by day, and run a modest bistro by night. The tiny wine bar received rave reviews from The Miami Herald and enjoyed almost immediate success. Unfortunately, circumstances were such that trying to juggle her three branches of business at once became overwhelming and Nikki decided to re-focus on what she was really passionate about. Q: You had a vision to have a restaurant, made it a reality and then had to change course. How do you feel about the decision you made? A: Leaving the restaurant was certainly difficult, but as a chef I really wanted to re-focus on doing things right, not running around doing three things haphazardly. I didn’t want my clients or the restaurant to suffer because I had too many things on my plate. Today, I am very happy that I decided to return to what I really love to do.

Q: The hospitality industry can be very rewarding but quite demanding, how are you able to balance work and life? (Like many people in the hospitality industry, Nikki is the quintessential multitasker.) A: “I like to always be moving, I don’t like to sit around and wait for things to happen”. Nikki says that now that she has refocused her energy back to its roots, streamlining the different aspects of life is as easy as pie. Pun intended. Q: Being a chef and an entrepreneur is a lot of work. What have you learned about running a business? What advice would you give to someone interested in beginning their own career as a chef?

A: “Learn as much as you can from every avenue possible. Stay open to opportunity. If you really have a passion for cooking, keep yourself versatile; opportunities have a way of presenting themselves to you.

in an effort to share my knowledge of running a business with future entrepreneurs like myself. Bottom line, I am a chef. Cooking is my passion. Anything about food is wonderful.”

Q: Now that you have re-focused, what are you doing now? A: “I am focusing my time and energy on catering events and cooking customized meals for my clients. I’ve had the opportunity over the past three years to cook a multi-course Christmas Eve dinner for Kandee G and her family and love making people happy through food. I am also doing some work in restaurant consulting

You Too Can Be Lucky by Simon Pantin Have you ever heard other people say, “He is so lucky. He got such a great job,” or “She was born with a ‘gold spoon’ in her mouth, things always seem to work out so well for her,” or even “I wish that I could work in a Company like that. They recognize and motivate their employees,” or perhaps “That Company is lucky that they have such long term staff. I just can’t get ours to stay.” Sometimes, in a family environment, you might hear, “Their children are so well mannered. Where did we go wrong?” or “Why can’t our son/daughter get (and keep) a good job?” As we start into another year, we need to bear in mind that most of the people and things that we envy or long to emulate, did not get that way simply by chance, nor is there really such a thing as a ‘gold spoon’ that anyone was (or is) born with. The reality is that happy people, lucky people and people whom life seems to favour, enjoy their apparent good fortune more because they attract good things to themselves rather than simply by chance. Every day, in so many ways, we have the opportunity to make good things happen for (and to) us. Spiritual people and those that are in touch and in tune with their God usually wake each morning with a smile, then proceed (as routinely as if they were going to brush their teeth) to give their God praise and thanks for allowing them to see another day and for granting them an opportunity to make someone else’s day a little brighter and better. After their morning prayer and meditation, they are then ready to take on any challenges that the day has to offer and we often find that they are seldom flustered or frustrated or frazzled by the things that come their way.

Happy people seldom have a ‘bad’ day. They still get flat tires and may become ill just like the rest of us, but they see every circumstance as an opportunity to meet someone new or to learn from the experience so that they can better understand or empathize with someone else who may be hurting. Likewise, Spiritual people have ‘dry’ spells when they feel alone and abandoned, but they have the Faith that they are loved by God and this is enough to get them across the ‘dry’ spell and keep them focused on the Prize ahead. Similarly, successful people have appointments that don’t always yield new business but in every case, their drive and motivation to be successful allows them to learn a little bit about the business that they did not get, so that the next appointment can be more successful and they would have a better chance of success. In short, there are two key characteristics that happy people, spiritual people and successful people share and demonstrate. The first is that they focus on what motivates and inspires them. By doing this they are able to create good things for themselves. They continually give thanks for the blessings that they receive, every day and all the time. They live in a state of gratitude and they keep a relentless focus on their goals. This actually attracts good things to them and while it does not prevent or shield them from unfortunate or less than desired things, they learn from each experience and they are continually moving forward toward their goals.

refocus their resolve and forge ahead. They take their disappointments in stride and they shift their gaze from the cloud to the Silver Lining. Each time. This does take a little practice but it is easier than one might think. It just requires a conscious decision to always seek the loving and supportive thought or action. If we find that our group of friends is always tearing others down and looking at the negative side of life, we can either get them to refocus or we can immediately start to look for new fiends to hang out with. If the TV shows that we look at are demeaning or promote a less than wholesome lifestyle, we can choose to read a book or visit with friends or switch channels and look at something else. If we want a better life with more success at the things that are important to us, we can make it happen by the things that we do and say, and by the focus that we place on them. Simon Pantin is a Caribbean-born parent and author. He is widely travelled and pulls his experiences from his own Spiritual life.

The second characteristic that these people share is that they do not focus on the negative aspects of life. They learn from all experiences and they

What’s Holding You Back Perhaps its your limiting beliefs... by Barry Gottleib take positive steps to overcome them. When you change your belief... You change your outcome.

We all have limiting beliefs. Most of us however, have never thought about what they are, or where they come from. As a matter of fact, if you are like most people you have never even considered the possibility that you have limiting beliefs. Limiting beliefs come in all shapes and sizes. They are often masked by denial and deflection. But, they are there. Most of them are not real except in our own minds. A few of us are very fortunate. We are not afraid to face them. This is the first and most important step toward making changes that will have a powerful impact on your lives, and your overall well being. What are your limiting beliefs? What is holding you back? Do you think you are not smart enough, tough enough, pretty enough, too old, too fat, too thin? What are you afraid of... the dark, water, snakes, failure, success, public speaking, changing jobs, a commitment, or something else? There is no doubt that we all have some limiting beliefs or fears. The key to having the life that you desire and deserve is to recognize what your limiting beliefs and fears are. Once you have done that, you can

Face Your Fears... Replace your limiting beliefs with new, powerful, positive beliefs; and you will change your life your first steps is to identify your top three to five limiting beliefs. This may seem difficult at first. But take your time and really look at the things that are holding you back and keeping you from having the life that you desire and deserve. Write each limiting belief on a separate piece of paper. Then, on another piece of paper, write a new positive belief to replace the limiting belief.

passionate you are, the better off you will be. Then for the next thirty days repeat this process to create a new, more powerful, positive belief. Do this when you first wake up and then again before you go to sleep. If your old beliefs try to resurface, which they usually do, say aloud... “Cancel”... and immediately replace that thought with your new positive belief. This requires a great deal of discipline. You must be committed and bold. Remember... Every day is a gift, and the quality of your life is your gift to yourself.

Often, this is the opposite of the limiting belief. Better stated, it is what you are rather than what you are against. For example: Limiting Belief: “I am overweight.” New positive belief: “I am a lean, healthy, fit woman (man).” Your new belief should be written in the first person, present tense, and be positive... as if it already exists. Next, close your eyes and visualize your new positive belief. Recite it aloud with passion and enthusiasm as if it already exists. Get excited! Now... Take your old, negative limiting belief... tear it up and throw it away, or burn it (someplace safe). As you do this, recite aloud: “I let it go.” Immediately visualize your new positive belief and recite it again with passion and enthusiasm. Take your time. Really get into it!

Aeature rticle F Seeing Your Life As Your Own Hero’s Journey Starting the Hero’s Journey By Hank Eder Dr. Spencer Johnson’s Who Moved My Cheese showed us four little characters suddenly facing great changes in their lives. One of them learns to grow and adapt, and he leaves messages for the others on the walls of their maze. When the others learn to read the “writing on the wall,” they, too, can begin to navigate successfully through times of change. They followed in the footsteps of a “hero,” and made their lives better. Our progression through the phases and changes of life can be likened to what Joseph Campbell called “The Hero’s Journey.” This progression of change, challenge, growth, and mastery is at the core of much of the world’s great literature and drama, from Odysseus’s adventures in The Iliad to Luke Skywalker’s” transformation from farm boy to Jedi Master in Star Wars. If we stop to examine our own lives, we’ll find we’re all on a Hero’s Journey, crossing great distances and enduring trials of our own choosing on our road to mastery. The Reluctant Hero In most of these tales, the hero, like us, is just a regular person, doing his best to lead a good life.

Feature A rticle Passion, Purpose, Persistence—Help Make it Happen An Interview with Dr. Dallas Humble by Linda A. Firestone, Staff Writer Challenges come and go and life happens. How we handle those challenges determines the path our lives will take, sometimes for years, sometimes for months. Dallas Humble has experienced three such moments, losing everything in a house fire, a divorce, and bad investments. Each experience has been characterized by pain and disappointment but also self - reflection and self -seeking. His divorce truly took his breath away. At such a moment, success in business is irrelevant. Dramatic events such as divorce can cloud one’s perspective. Dallas refers to these phases as “growth periods” because they are “internal and personal”. He also explained that, “I had a lot of struggles accepting things that were happening and knowing what was the right thing to do. I remember someone told me about a book, “Think and Growth Rich” by Napoleon Hill and then someone else recommended “Maximum Achievement” by Brian Tracy.” Those two books were among the hundreds Dallas read during this period of time and those two authors had a profound impact upon his being. “I went through a massive self education. I wrote letters to several of the authors of the books that I felt had mentored me—even though I had never met the authors. One of those people was Brian Tracy.” Dallas was seeking to bring positive change into his life, in all aspects of his life. These books, and these specific authors helped Dallas bring about a transformation he could not have imagined just a year before.

The impetus for growth and personal awareness can come to us in many forms. The realization of what makes us successful always comes in “AH HA” moments. For Dallas, one of those moments was when Brian Tracy responded to Dallas’ letter. Brian sent Dallas a photo with an inscription: Make it Happen, Dallas. “It hit me,” Dallas explained. “It sounded simple! I sat down and made a list. I wrote an outline of what I thought it meant. No matter what I wrote I was brought back to this thought. We can’t change anything until we are ready to change ourselves. Change starts within. Success is within us. I wrote the words Change Yourself. I began working with each letter of those words and came up with the book Make It Happen.”

adjustments, learn lessons, and still continue on the path to fulfillment. Thinking back upon the years of success and turmoil, after years of speaking in front of others about fulfillment, Dallas has compiled a list of lessons he has learned that help keep him moving forward.

others After many years of speaking to others about passion, purpose and persistence, of sharing what he had learned, Dallas had an opportunity to meet and talk with Brian Tracy. Years ago, he had vowed he would take this opportunity to personally thank Brian. “Last year I got a call inviting me to be a cast member of a movie “The Journey”, with Brian Tracy. When I met him, I showed him the book, I showed him the picture and I showed him where he wrote Dallas, Make it Happen. It was a very emotional time. It tied together the journey of that process of growth. The process took about 15 years. It was a long time,” Dallas concluded. With passion, purpose and persistence-Dallas made it happen.

The ability to move through those challenges, to alter the direction momentarily or permanently requires the ability to reflect upon one’s intention. Kandee G has been a student of intention and action for over thirty years. It had always been her intention to share her knowledge with others to affect positive change in the world. Now under development and soon to be released is an interactive and techsavvy method of defining intentions, setting and tracking goals along with a ‘reminder’ system. Kandee G and her team have developed a unique coaching program inside a membership platform. The membership program, iVisionMyLife, will truly make your life better than it’s ever been. But, for Kandee G the road leading to this magical moment has not always been easy nor straight forward. Several years ago, Kandee G planned to grow her speaking business. She was a well-established motivational, inspirational speaker and trainer helping individuals and businesses reach unimagined goals. Coupled with the extraordinary success of the Vision Program and the Vision coaching, there was a growing need in the marketplace. One that Kandee G did not want to ignore. Advisors told her “you need to duplicate yourself.” So she began to look for ways to do just that. She studied and observed what those growing needs were and began to look for ways to fill those needs. “I had to make a decision about the way I was approaching things. I was very busy. My coaching business was growing, my referrals were growing, and the media piece of my business (Nothing But Good News Radio and Nothing But Good News Magazine) continue to gain worldwide recognition. I had to decide how to move forward,” she explained. Some things work, others do not. “At the end of the day, I accept

responsibility for everything that goes on here in my business. I have taken a look at and tried several avenues for growing Kandee G Enterprises. Some things have worked phenomenally and some things not quite as well. But, every time I have hit a “hiccup” [in the plan] something great has come out of it.” Sitting back and taking time to understand the process is part of what Kandee G does. She realized that everything she did, her vision program, her coaching, her radio show, her magazine, her participation in the movie, The Journey and subsequent film projects, all were products of her principles and her devotion to “finding ways to implement the information so that folks will use the knowledge.” Industry statistics indicate that less than two percent of those who buy motivational products or go to seminars will implement that knowledge. Kandee G has a staunch determination to change those numbers. “I have created systems that people really use. We are changing those statistics!” Kandee G’s process of evaluation is multifaceted. She looks at every aspect of a project and asks herself, “What can I do better? What do I need to build this project? Who can I put in place to help this project grow?” Invariably when she asks herself these types of questions, she finds the answers. Those questions and a growing awareness launched a new project that she called iVisionMyLife. Formulated as a membership site, Kandee G did not want to create something that was just a “dump and run” type of program, where folks could download information but had to figure out how to implement on their own. “I have seen incredible success with our programs because of the way that we are hands on with the follow-up and follow through. Real transformation is not just a onetime event or reading a book. If all it took was to read one book, then everyone would be rich, thin and happy!” exclaims Kandee G with a smile. “It is not knowledge that is power, but the use of knowledge. And

with the level of personal assistance that we give, we see people getting the results they want and desire, because we are there to help them along the way.” The membership program is the perfect way to get folks worldwide tapped into a proven system for change. Some of the benefits will include access to Kandee G through group coaching. Access to guest speakers and coaches. Unlimited email coaching. Access to an amazing virtual technology to keep you on track. Mobile uploads, alerts and reminders to help you hold the course. Global networking opportunities to do business with other iVisionMyLife members. Discounts on products, services, live events, and advertising on Nothing But Good News Radio and Nothing but Good News Magazine. Opportunities to build points for one on one coaching; all for the cost of a lunch out once a month! Plus, an opportunity to be part of a select group that will mastermind with Kandee G personally. Eventually, Kandee G plans to sell the license to her well-acclaimed Vision Program. It is tested, proven, formatted and teachable. Everything one needs to build a business around the vision program is included. And her intention? “I can teach people how to speak, how to sell it, and how to coach with it. I can provide the back end support, and have others deliver it to people who want it and to have their own successful speaking business,” she thought. She calls it her “speaking business in a box.” In this way, she can continue to reach even more people through her vision program, and create business opportunities as well. Kandee G’s vision workshops continue to be requested. Her skills as a personal coach are eagerly sought out, and her radio show continues to grow in popularity as does her magazine. More and more people are asking for her help. With each request however, people express a need for a service they think they cannot afford. Change is the channel through which one can realize his or her intention and those intentions are what keep changes


rticle FAeature happening. As that change has lead to a bigger understanding of those needs in the marketplace; it was time to implement something very accessible and very affordable. Something that potentially has a far reaching impact. The universe through people was making that need known. Kandee G and her team set out to create what you see today as the iVisionMyLife platform. She felt, in accordance with her intention, that to affectively help as many people as possible this was the business approach that was needed. Kandee G believes iVisionMyLife will allow millions of people to tap into her knowledge, information, and programs. It is, as Kandee G describes it, more than a website that someone will go to read. It is a modestly priced, monthly, membership program. Programs, products, coaching, mobile uploads, mobile alerts, and so much more will be available to those who become members. “The project will fill in a missing piece for a lot of people,” Kandee G added. “A lot of folks,” she continued, “see all these things they can do and they bounce from here to here to here. They get lost

in their ideas. The ability to stay focused is crucial. This new program and technology will provide what they need to stay on track and the understanding of how and why this is critical.” For those folks that are looking to become speakers and trainers and would love to be part of a formatted, proven technology; just keep your eyes open and stay connected to the Kandee G community. “The road is long,” says Kandee G. “and the licensing program, although temporarily shelved as we launch the membership platform, its time will come. I have truly learned the value of building and structuring one program at a time; getting a handle on that one and then moving on to the next. Too often, people will have great ideas, try to get them all going at once and then they crash and burn.”

extraordinary group of folks that I work with now. I love them all.” “Intention has been a huge aspect of what has enabled us to drive things forward. Along the way, when things show up that are hard, I have had to draw a hard line and not step outside my own values. I have to stay with what I believe to deliver information, authentic information that makes a real difference in people’s lives. In the last ten years, I said to my universe I want to walk with folks who are of like mind, who want to help, make money and have fun. It has just been a magical ride. As long as I stay centered on the right intention and stay focused, the magic continues.”

Kandee G willingly admits that when it comes to business building it takes a team. “I have had some wonderful people that I have had the honor to work and grow with. I have an
