Awaken Your Day - February 22, 2008

What is the price of success?

Let's start by just loosely defining success as anything you set out to achieve and you did so. You set a goal, and you made it.

What does it cost you? Really?

Now, some of you will be thinking about goals of all sizes and with the broad range of goals comes a broad range of potential financial costs. That being understood, let's maybe break it down a little more.

Six weeks ago, I signed up for a Police Fitness Prep course. This is a course designed to get people ready to take on the policeman's physical exam. For me, it was a way to jumpstart my motion to get back to better health.

The goal was set. Determine where I was with my physical ability after being behind a desk without much recreation for six years - and improve on it to prove to myself that all was not lost.

Initial cost - desire and $65. Running cost - commit to two nights a week, and sacrifice time at home and some training calls, potato chips, eating after 9 p.m. , and the idea that I was not really that bad yet.

I began at 217.2 pounds. I could barely run one and a half laps before needing a break for my screaming leg muscles and my heart that had already ran 4 laps. We did an assessment test where you run a lap, do 15 push ups and 25 crunches and then get up and do that rotation four more times. With the funeral home on speed dial, I clocked in at 12.5 minutes. It helps to have some young guy beside you asking if you really want to do this.

Cost reminder - 6 weeks, 2 nites a week and some dedication to feel good again.

Last nite I came in at 205.8lbs. My time on the assessment was 9.5 minutes. And now I can run at least 6 laps without needing a towel for my tears. I feel good. My tummy is less persistant at pushing my shirt away from my body. And I have a notch back on my belt.

I can dance with my wife again.

What is the cost of success? What is the benefit of even this little, yet oh so generous feeling of success?

You tell me.

Friday brings you some free time to do more of what you want. Might I suggest you dig deep and identify one little goal. Be it some exercise, or clean the garage, or read a book...anything.

Might I suggest that if you just don't have a ton of time, then you gather up a little here, and a little there...like an hour a nite, two nites a week....and sit back and dedicate that to this little goal.

Tell me how fast six weeks goes by - Right after you tell me how wonderful you feel, or how clean the garage is...or how that book had such a wonderful and happy ending.

On your side, and on your team.

I believe in your success.

This is Pierre,

On behalf of my Partner and I with Wealth Creators Inc. and Prosperity Designers Inc. - Have a wonderful weekend.

Awaken Your Day - February 21, 2008

"I have always believed, and I still believe, that whatever good or bad fortune may come our way we can always give it meaning and transform it into something of value."
- Hermann Hesse, 1877-1962, Novelist and Poet

This is one of our most underlying beliefs here.
It is not always easy to see the value to be pulled from the various challenges we face.
When we put all this together, everything we share here in the mornings, the thoughts, beliefs and dreams, we become more able to see and focus and it all becomes easier to achieve.

The pursuit of wealth and happiness, can turn out to be the greatest thrill ride of your life.

Awaken Your Day - February 20, 2008

"Nurture your mind with great thoughts, for you will never go any higher than you think."
- Benjamin Disraeli, 1804-1881, British Statesman and Prime Minister

Great dreams, thoughts of greatness, should not be intimidating for you. Once you get rolling, with consistant motivation and belief, thoughts and dreams of great things will come natural to you. You simply have to let them, and follow them.

You set your limits.

You should not hear yourself say the words, "Oh, I could never..." before you even begin.

When you look up at a mountain before you, what do you see?
What thoughts go thru your mind when you look at this great task, this dream of great magnitude?
Do you look and see how hard it is?
Or do you concentrate on the reward of getting there?

I began to look way up. To the top of this dream.
To the summit of it. Way up there I see the snow covered peak of this mountain I have put before me. And I notice that my thoughts are becoming much more consistant.

One thought, for every dream, for every snow topped mountain.

Today, I will build a snowman.

Awaken Your Day - February 19, 2008

“The whole point of being alive is to evolve into the complete person you were intended to be.”- Oprah Winfrey

How I wish someone would have sat me down in my youth, and explained this to me. That I could have started this journey sooner.
Sounds like Reach.

When I grew up, there were no heros.
I had no one around me that drove home the value of setting goals.
Of trying big new things.
Reaching for what was seemingly beyond my grasp.

I do now.

In my role models I saw survivors, but I did not see what it meant to dream.
To chase something you were passionate for.
To believe in yourself.
To believe in yourself so much, that you went for more than just survival.

I do now.

Survival. I wish I may I wish I might. I wish.
Survival. Like maybe tomorrow I hope that the boss notices me.
Survival. Like, you know, things are really kind of tough right now, and uh, when next week comes around, it will be better…things will be different. Something will change. No really… really.
Survival. As in I have no idea what will come to me or what I can do about it, but I sure hope it gets better, and I am going to sit here and wait for “better” to just fall into my lap.
Survival. Like paycheque to paycheque.

“The whole point of being alive is to evolve into the complete person you were intended to be.”

I spent a lifetime waiting.
Waiting for life to show me Easy.
I wanted the Cheat Sheet.
Point A to point B for Dummies.
The quickest route between two points is a straight line
– and someone else was just going to take me there or at least draw it for me.
Because, well, it didn’t dawn on me that if I just put in a bit of effort…

It has now.

I gave away many priceless days of life…Waiting.
Personal Evolution comes with a price. Personal investment.
To grow, you must invest. In you.
In anything you become good at, or more knowledgeable about, you must invest of yourself.


Open Your Mind.

Somehow, it appeared I had finally paid the fare. Life came around and I began to Create something.
It felt good. I tasted some success.
But when I did, a funny thing happened.
I sat back and started Waiting again.
I thought life was going to throw a parade with everyone yelling “Hoorah! Look what you did!”
Not quite.

Part of evolving is constantly being open to learning.
I am not yet, the complete person I am meant to be.
I put my evolution on hold to kick it and enjoy the calm of surviving.
Surviving, turned out to be a whole lot harder than trying.
Sound familiar?

Now, I have seen what a day of personal evolution is worth.
I caught a good glimpse of what I am meant to be.
I have given away too many days without demanding anything in return.
Today, I step forward to collect a debt I owe to my success.

What are you willing to do to grow toward your personal success?
What is a day of your life worth, on the journey to becoming all you were intended to be?

Are you giving away a day - of your most treasured non-renewable resource, and asking nothing in return?
Are you waiting? Or are you Creating?

You, the artist, have the clay.
Good morning.
