Glimpsing Your Personal Heaven
In my private practice for the past 13+ years I have discovered how hungry we are to find deep fulfillment and loving, make wise choices for ourselves and the planet, and walk in union with our higher guidance.
Yet our days are filled with endless, empty lists of have-tos, shoulds, and must-dos. Quality time with our families, friends and ourselves is precious but brief. We swallow our food fast and information faster - and yet what our mind tells us does not bring us peace, and what we eat does not fill us up.
Ask yourself, what truly brings you lasting fulfillment and joy? What can you feed yourself that creates deep satisfaction? Which voice do you listen to for guidance when the hounds of fear, worry and anxiety are howling in your ears?
I believe this 'missing' enthusiasm and joy is found when we discover our personal heaven and begin living heaven on earth.
Accustomed to your ordinary world view, you fail to realize that another might exist beyond the dots of your to-do lists. Life presents many opportunities, each one capable of expanding your 'seeing' to encompass new possibilities.
I saw a major glimpse of my 'heaven' in 1987 during a 6 day personal growth seminar. At the time I was living a life many considered heavenly: happy marriage, two beautiful children, wealthy lifestyle, and plenty of time to pursue my fancies. Yet, in the wee hours of the morning my secret despair, loneliness and fear woke me up night after night. Inside I knew the lie of my 'happy' life. I did not know the purpose for taking my next breath. At the seminar when the facilitator began talking about the banquet table of life I suddenly beheld this larger way of living, this glimpse of heaven.
I wanted to bolt for the door.
The fear of facing the unknown 'me' inside was, at that time, bigger than living out my lack-luster life. But this defining moment did not fade from my memory. In time, I began the sometimes scary journey of moving beyond the dot-based experience, visioning my heaven and taking my steps.
Your heaven lies lurking just beyond those dots. And it takes an inside job to fully experience it. But upon seeing a glimpse of this larger reality do you abandon your dot-based reality? No, because mastering the shift from 'This is all there is' to 'Look at all there is!" takes patience, practice, guidance, willingness, grace, and time.

Jot down those qualities: peace, joy, loving, ease, well-being, energy, focus, caring, relaxation, radiant health, compassion... or fear, sadness, regret. Accept whatever appears.
Step Two: If your heaven is available now, what do you need to let go of in this moment to experience it?

The True Key to Prosperity
To have a high probability of becoming prosperous, you have to start with one very important decision!
This past Memorial Day weekend I decided to revisit my bookshelf to poke around and reminisce with books I'd read over the last decade. You see, I not only like to collect great books, I also date each one to remind me of when I read it. My 'invisible finger' guided me toward a book I read seven years ago titled, "Wealth and Freedom" by David Levin. Wealth and Freedom (I know?sounds boring) is a great read on political economy for non-economists?like me.
Teachings of the Success Masters
Authors such as Napoleon Hill have produced a great deal of writings that form the classic success philosophy of the early 1900s. Most of this material is as applicable today as it was back then, and forms the basis of the teachings of many modern success gurus. Here is a sampling of selections from those early success writers:
I Don?t Believe in Failures
I prefer to call the challenges, obstacles, side-tracks, and barriers that prevent me from reaching my goals as "unfavorable outcomes". If you put Merriam-Webster definition [i] of failure "as the lack of success" into perspective, remembering that "success is a journey and NOT a destination", then you too will be able to accept and embrace unfavorable outcomes in life rather than demise failures.

Failure is Great

If you have read this far, we both know you are serious about succeeding, getting the most out of life, and attaining your goals.
Evaluating Your Associations (Part One)
If you were to evaluate the major influences in your life that have shaped the kind of person you are, this has to be high on the list: the people and thoughts you choose to allow into your life. Mr. Shoaff gave me a very important warning in those early days that I would like to share with you. He said, "Never underestimate the power of influence." Indeed, the influence of those around us is so powerful! Many times we don't even realize we're being strongly affected because influences generally develop over an extended period of time.
The Psychology Of Success; Part 1
Business knowledge and skills are not the only keys to success. To be successful, you also need to master the psychological skills that will help you to be satisfied and fulfilled, and thus more effective in your work. Knowing how to manage your mind, and understanding how to deal with lack of confidence, stress, anxiety, and depression, is as important as knowing how to handle the strategic and organizational challenges of your business.
The Only Option is to Succeed
With the end of the year fast approaching, now is a great time to take stock of 2004. It is likely that your company set specific goals at the beginning of the year. As you review the past year, the question that must be asked is, "Have I achieved my goals? Has my company achieved the outcomes we set?" If your answer is yes, congratulations! If not, what stopped you?
Are You the Reason for Your Lack of Success?
Have you ever noticed when playing a video game, or even working on a computer software program, that you sometimes wish it would go somewhere or do a particular task, but no matter what you do it won't do it.
Success Analysis - The Concept of Critical Mass
How many times have you thought about being successful, famous, having lots of money? Many times, I'll bet. Then you start to think about the cost of all that and you go to have a little lie down until the feeling passes. Would that be right?

Dont Listen To Successful People
Do you know what the problem is with asking successful people for advice? They don't always know why they are successful - but they'll give you all the reasons you want. I once watched an 100-year-old man explain that smoking every day was the secret to his longevity. It would be great to know why he lived so long, but I'm pretty sure we won't learn by asking him.
Unlocking Human Potential
Before we can unlock human potential, we need to know what it is. Human potential is defined as an unexposed ability and hidden power. For a rock seated on a cliff, it has a dormant ability, a reserved power, but for you and I, it simply means unused success, hidden talents and capped capability.
