I recently completed training as a Prosperity Coach with the awesome Ellen Rogin. Among other things, Ellen is a CPA who believes that prosperity is not just about earning and wisely investing money. While those things are important, a positive, grateful mindset is essential to living a prosperous life. Continue reading

Here’s another fine mess I’ve gotten myself into.
Yesterday I wrote about liking brief posts, admiring the people who write them so well, and having a go at one, myself.
Here’s where it gets messy~ I’ve been blogging for about a year and that brief, little post received way more hits, more likes and shares on social media, and more awesome comments than any other post I’ve ever written.
One of the things I admire about some of my favorite bloggers, is when their posts are short. They make their point succinctly and then they get the heck outta there. Check out Randy Gage or Bob Burg or Seth Godin. Short, informative and profoundly thought-provoking, as evidenced by the interesting discussions in the stream of comments. Continue reading
So today, the holidays are officially over~ for me. (My daughter and her boyfriend were visiting his family in the UK, and yesterday was the first day we could all get together to exchange gifts with them. Did it. Loved it. Now let’s get that tree out of my house!!!) And now that they’re over, I can officially dive back into what I love nearly as much as my kids, the beach and playing tennis ~ My business Continue reading
Over the past two weeks, I have been doing some free coaching sessions. I’ve met some really wonderful people from all over the world. I have been inspired by their stories and presumably, I’ve helped them gain clarity on their goals and shared practical ideas on ways to move forward.
Yesterday, as I glanced through my notes from those sessions, I experienced perhaps the clearest awareness I’ve ever had regarding human behavior.
WE ALL WANT THE SAME THING! Continue reading
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
Don’t be fooled!
Nothing is free!
I’m having a “Buy None, Get One FREE” sale. Continue reading
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
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.
