Not happy with the results you’re experiencing in any area of your life?

There are times when I’ve not been happy with my physical fitness. My insurance sales may be down. We may be losing more customers than we’re putting on. There are times when key relationships have gone sour and our finances went south. You know what I mean?

Don’t get caught in the trap of placing too much focus on the results!

The results we’re experiencing today are as a result of the decisions we made in the past. Learn from them. But acknowledge that our results are NOT an indication of our potential nor our future. Our breakthrough to exponential growth in any area of our live’s is right around the corner.

Let’s be reminded to place our focus on the future and not on the past.

See, when you drive home today, you’ve got a big windshield on the front of your car. And you’ve got a little bitty rearview mirror. And the reason the windshield is so large and the rearview mirror is so small is because what’s happened in your past is not near as important as what’s in your future. – Joel Osteen –

Where are you headed? What future results are you creating today?

No matter how bad it has been. The possibilities are endless! Your resources are bountiful! That’s just the way God made it!

We live in abundance! The river will never run dry! You will always have resources!

I attended the International Maxwell Certification just over 4 years ago and got certified to teach, train and coach on the Maxwell Methodology. It was a very emotional experience… The camaraderie, and the sense of purpose and calling on my life, was overwhelming. 

It didn’t take long to realize that much of what had happened in my past had led me to this place.

I eagerly signed up for the Mentorship program and got excited about the possibility of traveling to Guatemala with John Maxwell and the team. And to learning, growing and becoming the best that I could be and take my insurance business to another level!

I decided that before the conference ended I had to go up and introduce myself to Paul Martinelli, the president of the John Maxwell Team. I wanted to thank him and to tell him of the major impact this had on me and about the decisions and commitments that I made and to ask for his guidance and help.

But on the final day, when I had the opportunity to meet him things just didn’t happen as I planned… Looking back I can just imagine what may have gone through Paul’s mind as he saw me charging towards him, clambering up the stage, red-faced and teary-eyed, literally grabbing him by the hand and blurting out, “this better work, man!”

Out of nowhere this Big Guy appeared and stood beside Paul and started reassuring me that Paul wasn’t going anywhere and that, “He will be there to help you build your business.” To which Paul added,  “It’s not like I don’t have a reputation to protect.” Suddenly it dawned on me, that this must be Paul’s body-guard and because of the gamut of emotions running through me, I must have come across as aggressive… and threatening…

I tried to clarify and apologize but it was too late… And so I left the stage confused, after totally embarrassing myself…

It was a humbling experience; but after a lot of reflection (and learning that Paul does not have a body-guard :)), I must admit that I allowed my insecurities to get the better of me. What Paul experienced that day was an insecure guy who found his dream and wanted Paul to know and to be there to guide him and hold him accountable. A guy hoping that he wouldn’t mess this up like he had messed up other significant pursuits in the past. 

Fast forward 4 years later and this guy has grown tremendously and much because of the leadership and mentorship of Paul Martinelli and this tremendous community.

And I’m so excited to invite you to join Paul and me on a FREE call where Paul is going to teach on Purpose, Vision & Goals. This call will help you to discover your purpose and to create and manifest the things you want in your life. Click here for additional info

This is a call you do not want to miss… on June 5th 2017, 7pm ET. Go ahead and register for the call… if you can’t make it you will at least be able to listen to the recording. You’ll be glad you did!

Auto pilot

“Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate.” – C. G. Jung – 

As I welcomed a mentor into my life I discovered that most of what I did in my personal life and in my insurance business, was being directed by my subconscious mind. I was on auto pilot mode and didn’t even realize it or understand it as such. And what made matters worse? The pilot had been programmed to take me to a destination other than the one I wanted to go to!

I started learning that I needed to take it off of automatic pilot and take back the controls. And I needed to program in the new, more desirable coordinates and remain present as pilot of the plane in order to stay on track. No matter what came my way. Whether it was the wind, the rain, or any other element or distraction.

These elements left unchecked had been previously taking me off course. Sometimes I had to make crash landings or I was just plain stuck, and had to fly in circles, over and over, round and around I went without really getting anywhere.

Making this type of change is not easy work. This work, in most cases requires us to learn from and be guided by someone who has already navigated their way through the process. And that person must be willing to share with us what it takes to make our own way through.

Do you have such a person in your life?

Are you on auto pilot?

How do you know when you’re on auto pilot?

If you think you can or think you can’t. You’re usually right.

The challenge is having the awareness to recognize what we’re thinking.

I need the presence of mind to choose to believe in my infinite potential. To choose the positive. To believe in my oneness with the source and creator of it all.

Most of us think we can’t and we find the reasons why we can’t and we tell ourselves stories to back up our limiting beliefs. We also get a lot of help and reinforcement of our limited thinking from well meaning family and friends.

Life is a fight for territory!

“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened for you.”

If you don’t have what you want in life it’s because you have faith in what you don’t want. – Paul Martinelli
