What You See... On Purpose

I really love this daily inspirational I received from speaker and author of the Conversations with God Series, Neale Donald Walsch. It reminds of one of my favorite quotes by author AnaƮs Nin:

“We don’t see the world as it is; we see the world as we are.”

I encourage you to check out Neale’s website and subscribe to his daily inspirational, I Believe God Wants You to Know… Enjoy!

On this day of your life, I believe God wants you to know...

....that it sometimes looks like "one thing after the other," but really, it is Blessing After Blessing.

I know, I know...you don't experience it that way. But that's because you don't see it that way. In this business of life, "What you see is what you get."

If you think you are looking at struggle, struggle is what you will experience. If you decide that you are looking at a gift (even if you can't see it clearing in this exact moment), a gift is what you will get. Just wait. You'll see. I mean that literally. You will see.

Be purposefully blessed,

Be on Purpose Like the Philosopher

Okay, I must share with you a service that I think totally rocks! I am so addicted to it and remember, I have this issue with being consistent. Well, this keeps me consistent and up-to-snuff. It’s called PhilosophersNotes. My Gaia and Facebook buddy, Brian Johnson, has read all of these great personal development books and summarized them as a six-page PDF and a 20-minute MP3 audio. Sometimes we just don’t have the time to read all the books on our list, or even on our nightstand. Brian has done it for us! How cool is that?

Brian says: "I'm committed to inspiring (& empowering) you to live your greatest life. After selling my last business (Zaadz) in 2007, I decided to give myself a Ph.D. in How to Live/Optimal Living with a specialization in Greatness, Bliss and Enthusiasm." How cool is that?

What I love about this is that Brian is committed to giving away one million subscriptions of PhilosophersNotes. Check out this YouTube video of Angela Stokes of RawReform.com promoting the service. One of my daily 10’s is to read and/or listen to three PhilosophersNotes. Remember, be consistent! I believe that excessive use of this service will aid you into becoming not only purposeful but consistent!

Some of the titles that Brian summarizes are: Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill; The Science of Getting Rich by Wallace Wattles; The Law of Attraction and Money and the Law of Attraction by Abraham-Hicks; A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle; Loving What Is by Byron Katie; and The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success by Deepak Chopra, just to name a few. Now, any and all purposeful people must be up on these books. Just think how erudite you will be at your next networking event or social gathering? Imagine, shooting some of this stuff into a conversation at your next meeting?

So, head over to PhilosophersNotes and as Brian says, “Get your wisdom on!” Also, become a Facebook fan.

Here's to your wisdom!

Be Consistent ~ Go 10-5-1

Okay, purposeful people, we are into the second month of the year and this is a check-in. How are you doing? Are you stepping into and living your intentions? Are you feeling those dreams? Are you a manifestation magnate? Well, if you answered YES, I absolutely applaud you. If you answered NO, well… what’s up with that? What are you doing? What are you not doing? Are you feeling? Are you being consistent? Do you have the nutritious support people?

I must tell you. I was one of those people who only manifested when it was perfect, when the weather was good, when I finished this or that or something else. Blah, blah, blah! Enough! One of my 2009 mantras is: BE CONSISTENT! I have started my 10-5-1 system. It’s my practice to be and stay consistent.

I write out 10 things I will do everyday consistently until they become a habit. Don’t say you can’t do this because you do it anyway; you just don’t write down that you brush your teeth, you shower, you get dressed, you eat…. But you do them, don’t you? Uh-huh. So, a few of my 10 things are to meditate, to journal and mindmap, to do morning, evening and night prayer, and to do my breathwork. Yes, I do these things, but not consistently. This is the key: CONSISTENCY; and to help me stay consistent, I write them out everyday in my journal. Sometimes I would skip a day because I was tired. Well, hoity-toi! Who cares! I am a manifestation magnate and to be a manifestation magnate I must be consistent. So there!

I write out the 5 things I will do consistently each and every week. Two of my main weekly intentions are to attend an online teleseminar and a live networking event every week. This keeps me connected, focused and it re-energizes me to do what I need to do. It also allows me to generate new opportunities. Again, writing them down every week creates that shift in mindset moving me from a wimpy perfectionist to a JUST DO IT manifestation magnate!

Each and every day I write out my 1 main 90-day intention. Why a 90-day intention? Because my coach said so and he’s a multi-millionaire. Hey, I may be a perfectionist, but I ain’t stupid! And yes, I write it down everyday. I also have it on a laminated card tucked into my daily planner and I read that card several times a day. I nearly fell off my chair today screaming because it is working! This stuff really works! How do I know? The multi-millionaire coach, remember? If I’m lying, I’m flying!

So, it is month two and still time for you to put some systems into place to re-define your 2009. When you do, be what? Be what? I can’t hear you! BE CONSISTENT!

Here's to your consistent prosperity!
