5 Step Method to Get What You Want

The title says it all. And it’s no secret. You don’t have to go to a mountain top and meet with a bearded guru to get the key to life either. You see you’re already holding the key. You need to find the lock. The two go together. Lock and key. You need both. Start here. Really and truly this episode contains all you need to get going on the path toward your dream.

It would serve you well to have a mentor and coach too. That’s me. Let’s talk. Send me a message and I’ll send you my schedule. New class starting soon. Isn’t it about time you started living the life you would love to live?

Create and Grow or Wither Away

In today’s episode I explore some words from Robert Collier’s classic work ‘Riches Within Your Reach.’ I invite you to listen and do some self examination of where you are and how you are participating with life and living or are you?

Here’s Robert’s words that we’ll look at today. Consider how these words apply to you, no matter where you are on the path of  life:

“The whole purpose of existence is growth, and all nature is continually growing. Whenever anything stops growing, it starts to die.”


“…it is only when you conceive and start great projects impossible of attainment by you alone, that you call forth the power of the Seed of Life in you, to draw to you every element you need for complete growth and fruition.” 


“You are, in short, what your thoughts and fears and beliefs have made you. Your present condition reflects the successful result of your past thought! Astonishing as it may sound to many people, you are now living in a world of your own making. But you don’t have to keep living there if you don’t like it. You can build a new world in exactly the same way you built that one – only it would be well to build it on a different model.” 

Please listen, today episode just may be the wake up call you need to start living the life you would love to live!

Inspired Living

Inspired living. What exactly does that mean? Let’s look at the word ‘inspired.’  Inspired comes from the Latin  word ‘inspiratus’ which means to breathe into. I like to look to the word ‘inspiration’ and take that apart too. ‘In – Spirit’ or ‘Inner Spirit’ to me, means divine influence coming from within. An inner knowing received from that inner spirit which knows!

It’s there in all of us. It lives us and breathes us and whether you understand it or believe it, does not matter. It just is. Now when you learn to pay attention to it, trust it and follow it’s direction; your whole life will come alive in ways you never thought possible! It’s time to listen. It’s time to go inside and get some directions. It’s time for inspired living which is living in alignment with your soul.

Listen in to today’s episode as I practice this today. I had know idea what I was going to talk about when I hit that record button. I hit that button anyway and allowed this entire episode to be ‘inspired’

The Law of Detachment – Uncertainty

In his book, “The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success,” Dr. Deepak Chopra states; “The Law of Detachment says that in order to acquire anything in the physical universe, you have to relinquish your attachment to it. This doesn’t mean you give up the intention to create your desire. You don’t give up the intention, and you don’t give up the desire. You give up your attachment to the result.”

At first, this law might be hard  to wrap our head around. So let’s be clear, we’re still going after our big dream goal, but we’re releasing our attachment to it. High participation in productive activity and low attachment to outcome is key. This allows the wisdom of the Universe to apply Itself to our intention. When ego is attached to a certain way and a rigid specific outcome, we leave no room for something better than we can ever possibly imagine to show up, move in and support us on our path to fulfillment.

That’s why you’ll often see me end affirmations or intentions with the words “under grace in perfect ways” or “this or something better.”  We must leave room for the Infinite to respond to our vibration and intention. “It”, in it’s Infinite Intelligence knows infinitely more than our ego.

Set the intention to move in the direction of your Big Dream Goal, participate daily in productive activity that moves you forward, then, allow room for the Spirit of Life, Love and Wisdom to do what it does best, and that’s co-creating a better, new and improved version of your life!

Your Infinite Potential

It doesn’t matter how you measure success, achievement or prosperity. And no matter what you have accomplished up until this point in your life, you still  have  not even scratched the surface of your infinite potential. We are alive in a sea of inexhaustible potential and possibility.  It’s time to reevaluate and reexamine what we have decided to trade our life for. We need to ask ourselves if we are in alignment with our life’s purpose. We must, absolutely must, go after our life’s dream, planted there within us by our Source.

Rumi said; ““You can accomplish a hundred other things but if you do not accomplish the one thing for which you have been sent, it will be as if you have done nothing.” 

Wow. As if you have done nothing. Is that the way you want to live your life? It’s time to spend some time with your authentic self. In your quiet time of inner reflection, discern what it is that will bring satisfaction to your Soul.
