Being Nice Does NOT Mean You’re A Go-Giver

Earlier this week, I wrote about offering free coaching calls.  At the end of the post, I mentioned that there was no catch.  “I’m just someone who loves what they do and understands the value and benefit of applying The Five Laws of Stratospheric Success.

Based on some of the feedback I’ve received, I feel the need to clarify a key point about being a Go-Giver, the book which outlines these five Laws.

Being a Go-Giver does not mean
you give things away for free. Continue reading

When They Say FREE, There’s Always A Catch

Always!
Don’t be fooled!
Nothing is free!

Except this.
I’m having a “Buy None, Get One FREE” sale. Continue reading

This Is SO Cool~Like An Ice Cube!

A few days ago, I went to get some ice from the freezer and this is what I found.

WHAT?!?!?!  How the HECK did that happen?  I filled the ice cube trays the day before, the same way I always do.  But for some reason, two of them formed peaks at the top.  Seriously, how the HECK does that happen???  And why? Continue reading

Don’t Study, Be Happy!!!

Perhaps my favorite teacher on Law of Attraction is Esther Hicks/Abraham.  And I think the reason they are my favorite is because they KISS~ Keep It Super Simple.  In a nutshell, the lessons I’ve learned from them can be summed up in two words~ FEEL GOOD.  Here is the daily quote they sent me today: Continue reading

The Bracelet Isn’t Magic, But The Awareness IS!

I am currently enrolled in a Prosperity Coaches training which involves wearing a blue Abundance Activist™ bracelet, similar to a Livestrong bracelet.  Every time I GIVE or RECEIVE something, I switch the bracelet to the other wrist.  It may sound silly, but doing that simple action has had a dramatic effect on my awareness of both of these things. 

It doesn’t matter what I am giving or receiving; it could be time, money, a gift, a kind word, an iPad… Every time I notice such an act, I switch the bracelet.

Well, yesterday I made my annual trip to my favorite flea market to do some Christmas shopping.  I’ve been going there for over 20 years, and I never remember receiving a discount, aside from the normal “Buy 1 for $20 or 2 for $30″ offer.  But this trip was different and that blue bracelet got quite a workout!

The highlight of the day occurred while going down my last aisle, cold and weary from three hours of walking and spending.  A gentleman selling food choppers asked “Will you watch my demonstration? You don’t have to buy anything.  No one else is.”  His humorous approach made me laugh and although I was tired and had absolutely no interest in what he was selling, I said “Sure!  Show me what you’ve got.”

As I approached his table, I switched my bracelet, aware that I had made the decision to GIVE this nice man a few minutes of my time.

The demo was so cool that I purchased his chopper for $25.  As I waited for him to put it in the bag, I started to switch my bracelet, aware that I was GIVING him a sale, not because I really wanted the product (although it is really cool!) but because I felt like doing something nice.  At that moment, the thought to GIVE him the bracelet came to me, so I did.

After explaining how to use it, he happily put it on his wrist, smiled and said “You just made my day!” and I really felt his appreciation.  He continued, “And now I’m gonna make yours” as he put a second chopper in the bag!  How cool is that?!  We were both smiling ear-to-ear as he switched the bracelet to his other wrist.

As soon as I got home, I put on a new blue bracelet and have switched it several times since then.  I’ve been assured the bracelet isn’t magic, but the awareness that every GIVING also involves a RECEIVING truly is!

Where is your awareness on the topic of giving and receiving?  Do you notice one more than the other?  I can promise that as you become more aware of both, you will experience both and on a more equivalent, consistent basis.

God Doesn’t Care

This might sound a little “Randy Gage-ish” of me, but I’m gonna say that again…
God~ The Universe, Infinite Intelligence, a Higher Power, Energy, Spirit, Source, whatever or whomever you choose to think of as God.
Doesn’t
Care~ judge or have an opinion about Continue reading

When You Miss The Target, Is It The Target’s Fault?

Last week I read a blog by my friend, Bob Burg on the topic of communication and sending mixed messages.  The lesson I took away, was that it is up to me to make sure I am heard AND understood when making a point.

In the post, Bob quoted one of his early mentors who said “When the shooter misses the target, it ain’t the target’s fault.”  While this statement is rather obvious, it is certainly worth consideration.  How often do we blame the target?  It couldn’t possibly be me or my delivery or my technique or my skill or ability; it must be something the target did!

Looking For Prosperity? Check The Refrigerator

Now I realize that title may sound a little ridiculous, but hear me out.

Yesterday I was preparing some notes for a workshop on financial well-being; specifically, the high-frequency vibration of money and the low-frequency vibration of poverty.  I was writing about ways to achieve the vibration of money, without actually having the money.  (Since the Law Of Attraction says we attract things that are on a similar frequency of vibration, this is rather important.)
