I was just thinking about why I have visitors to my blog but they do not comment.  I would love to exchange dialog and be more inclusive with my readers.  It occurred to me that I am not providing any invitation for others to comment.  I apologize.  It is definitely my desire to dialog and gain the insights of others.  That just makes it so much more interesting…please feel free to comment as you visit.

Helping Others…

You can have anything in the world you want simply by helping enough other people get what they want. ~ Zig Ziglar

In December of last year, a friend and colleague on my day job introduced me to a ‘business opportunity’. I attended the meeting she invited me to that evening. I had hope that whatever it was, it would be the thing for me. I showed up with little information because I trusted my friend. I believed that she would not steer me in the wrong direction. I knew enough about how she lived that made me feel comfortable about her recommendation.

The meeting was inspiring and motivating! I was instantly intrigued by the notion of helping people make and/or save money. Besides, I needed to make more money and save as much as possible too! So, I became an ACN Independent Business Owner.

My challenge soon became the number of people who shyed away from this type of opportunity (network marketing), because they either had a poor prior experience or they simply had fear and lacked confidence in themselves to meet people and assist them in changing their lives.

I have been an entrepreneur for many years and even owned traditional businesses so I had no fear. I immediately owned up to the fact that I did not give 100% effort to my previous attempts at network marketing. However, this was different. I could really see how this was not selling products to people that they do not consistently use or need. It was essential services to everyday life: phone service, internet, wireless, home security, and energy.

The next thing I did was attend an International Training in San Jose, California. I was moved to tears by the people who had been successful in this business. They told my story. I could feel their journey to self-discovery and ultimate achievement.

I knew then that my life was about to change forever. This is really when I decided to CREATE AN AMAZING LIFE for myself. The best part is I would get to help others do the same. This is what I am truly passionate about. ACN is a vehicle for me to reach people and assist them – I love it!

Day Two at the Gym

I feel absolutely awesome today! I walked farther and longer on the treadmill! I am energized and feeling healthy. I have prepared a healthy lunch and am looking forward to being at my best today. If it is to be, it is up to me (cheesy but true). Having an amazing body is only a part of CREATING AN AMAZING LIFE!

A New Day, New Opportunities!

It is a blessing to have a new day and opportunity to get right whatever you didn’t get right yesterday.

I am looking forward to exercising at the gym this morning. I actually have a plan to get there earlier. I realize that consistency is the key to my success.

When I think of all the times I failed to be consistent because I gave up too soon, it saddens me. I have always had tremendous potential yet never quite reached the pinnacle of my success.

Now, I invoke wisdom! I think things through and am not afraid to slow my pace and catch the rhythm of what I am doing.

I believe blogging will help me with this. I am determined to CREATE AN AMAZING LIFE! By documenting the journey it will help me to continuously ‘get it right’.

There is so much I plan to achieve in my lifetime. Not just for me but for my family too.

I am slowly revealing myself in this blog as random instinct will allow me to. That is how you create something. The more that is revealed in a painting, the more beauty you see (even the flaws belong as it is an original and unique work of art).

Transforming my body is only one aspect of what I intend to accomplish. I will focus on my finances, spiritual life, relationships, and so much more as my days unfold.

This really feels good.

Day One at the Gym

42913gym

Earlier this morning, I was a little disappointed that I did not run to the gym at 5am. However, I did not give up! I went to the gym after dropping off my son as I said I would. I am so happy that I kept my word. Now, when he asks me about it, I can tell him that I went and he will be pleased also. It is so important for me to remain consistent.

Last week, I experienced pain in my upper left side, shortness of breath, right side lower abdomen pain. I had a bunch of imaging tests done, missed work, etc. This morning, I was told that my results were favorable. No issues with kidneys or gallbladder as the doctor suspected. Well, the pain was real, but I do not want to claim anything major, so I celebrate the good news!

I just joined the gym. Tomorrow night I meet with the nutritionist and personal trainer. This is good stuff! I am a bit nervous and don’t know what to expect, but pleased that I am taking this step towards CREATING AN AMAZING LIFE!

Insanity

Insanity is doing the same things and expecting different results.

I want to go to the gym. I woke up with the intension to do so at 5am. I even told my son that I would be going to the gym this morning. The alarm sounded and I hit snooze, then I shut it off because I am awake now. I have a goal to eliminate 100 pounds from my body in the next year.

My son just came to the bedroom door and asked if I went to the gym. It’s 6am. I said, “No, I am going after I drop you at school.” He said, “Okay.”

Now, I have to go! No choice in the matter. I have to change up my game. In other words, start doing what I say I’m going to do – always!

I can’t keep doing the same as before and expecting different results! I am not insane. I am eliminating pounds from my body. This requires exercise and proper nutrition. Welcome to this part of my journey to CREATE AN AMAZING LIFE.

Creating an Amazing Life!

Welcome to my blog! I hesitated to begin yet another blog. I have created a few in my life. There is a story to tell. There are people to reach and I am eager to do that. Yet once the opportunity arises I spend countless moments pondering the words that I need to share.

Well, I am going to stop that behavior and simply share! My thoughts, experiences, hopes, dreams, and goals will all be shared this time.

I’m not too concerned about second guessing my audience. I am not concerned with perfection like in the past. I simply must share.

Through my pain, I developed a passion for people and realized my purpose.
