Dream Catch Me


'Dream Catch me' by Newton Faulkner is such a powerfully uplifting song to listen to. I instantly feel so alive and free when I listen to this song. It  reminds me of who I am and where I'm going. The lyrics and energy of the song helps me to reconnect with my soul's purpose and passion. It allows me to see that my dreams will always hold me up to a higher purpose and without them I'd fall. I've put the song to videos of my daughter which I think really express the lightness and freeness of the song. Children can so easily express who they are without any limitations. She helps to remind me to just love the fullness of life and to be who I truly am.

Where is the place that you go to when you're alone? The place where you can be anyone you want to be and do anything you want to do. Who do you find in that silent space?

This is who you really are. Spend some time there appreciating you and allow to shine forth in everything you do and say. Stay connected to the true essence and beauty of you, that's who you came here to be. You can be anyone you want and do anything you want. Dream big and believe in the power of it.

That's where I'm going. Where are you going?

Close your eyes and know who you are. Hold you close and let your dreams catch you

Positive and Negative Pheromones- What are You Going to Leave Behind?

I’ve been learning about positive and negative pheromones lately through my favorite teacher Dr. Wayne Dyer. These lessons resonated so deeply with me, arrived right in the midst of a powerfully uplifting pheromone experience, and allowed me to understand how they have impacted my life thus far.

Pheromones are particles of unseen energy that are emitted in moments of fear, and in its opposite, love. Well-documented studies have shown that when animals and humans, enter into a room or place where torture has taken place, they feel the painful and cruel energy that existed there. The fear that these pheromones leave behind impact the energy field so that it affects anyone who enters that space even years later.I understood what Dr Wayne Dyer was explaining here as I have been in many places where I have felt deeply the impact of these pheromones on the state of my well-being.

When traveling through Cambodia, a must-see on every traveler’s list is the Killing Fields. This is where at least 200,000 Cambodians were executed by the Khmer Rouge. Before going to the fields we visited the notorious ‘Security Prison 21.’ This was an old high school and it was the place many innocent people were taken to be interrogated and tortured.

Unimaginable pain and terror once existed within those walls and I felt it’s horror so intensely. Just thinking about it brings back the eerie and sickening feeling of that day. We left the torture chambers in deep shock, sickness and horror at how humans could treat one another. We decided we could not visit the Killing Fields and experience any more of what had happened there so many years ago. I just couldn’t experience the brutality of it anymore. All that we read and saw there could have been done through a book and we would never have felt what we did. After learning from Dr. Dyer this week, I now know that I felt so bad that day because of the cruel and painful energy field that was left behind by those tortured souls.

On the other end of the spectrum I have experienced the faster energy fields of love and happiness. We visited Biltmore Estate on the weekend, which is the largest house in America and home of the Vanderbilt Family, who were once the richest in the world. Positive, happy and loving energy fields radiated from the walls in there. You could just feel the joy of what once existed in that warm and welcoming home.

Leaving Biltmore Estate I was filled with a fuzzy warmth inside that signaled to me that a great time was had by anyone who was a guest of the Vanderbilt Family. I’d spent time in the opulence surroundings of the largest house in America, eaten a divine lunch in what was once the stables and finished the day with tastings of wine in the cellars. The pheromones of the place ignited my spirit and left me with thoughts of wealth and the pleasures that are so abundant in our world for us to share and experience. Within these walls once lived a family who loved each other deeply and shared this love and happiness with all who entered and spent time with them.

After learning about pheromones and my experiences today at Biltmore it became more apparent to me just why I am so addicted to and in love with travel. It is through the existence of these pheromones that I can experience life in the richness and fullness of it’s diversity. I can experience the pleasures and pain of so many lives that existed before my own.

I’ve visited places that are full of positive pheromones and I am so uplifted with joy and the power of the human spirit to create so much love. I live through the people that have come before me and I know what it’s like to explore and be the first to gaze upon incredible sights like Victoria Falls; build magnificent temples; play with intense joy or to triumph over adversity and love so deeply.

On the contrary, the pain that has existed in places before has been felt intensely by me upon visitation there also. These pulsing, negative pheromones have brought tears rolling down my cheeks and a sickness to my core. Through them I have felt the horrors of war, of torture, of sickness and poverty, or racial discrimination and hatred. Many times I’ve wanted to turn my back on humanity, stop the world and just get off.

But it is through experiencing each of these acutely (through these pheromones) and by being present in that pain that I have been able to understand what is important in life and from this develop my own personal code of ethics and belief. I know what I need to do to live my life so that I create a world that impacts by leaving only positive pheromones behind.

Do you? What are you choosing to leave behind each day?

Gathering the Strength and Power to Move Forward to the Attainment of your Goals.

As you move along your path to the achievement of your goals there will be times when nothing happens. Everything seems to come to a standstill and there is no movement forward. You become disenchanted, unmotivated and your goals seem so far away and unattainable.

This is the most dangerous part of your mission. This is the time where most people quit as they feel it just won’t happen to them. You have to be aware when this is happening so that you too don’t succumb and quit too. This is momentary pause is not a signal to you that nothing is happening and its time to find another way.This pause is the moment where you need to re-gather and prepare as it’s when things are about to really fly for you.

I’ve been on over 100 hundred flights and still the scariest part for me is just after take-off when the engines seem to cut off and the plane seems to stall and I think that it is about to fall out of the sky. I panic every single time. But every single time after that momentary pause, the plane re-gathers, flattens out and moves forward. And every single time I have arrived safely to my destination.

What do you do then when you arrive at this moment? How do you overcome the fear and the thought that your goals are about to drop out of the skies and aren’t going to reach them?

First recognize what is happening. You are just having a pause to gather your strength. So gather your strength. Focus on why you are doing what you are doing and then do something. That something maybe just to put everything to the side while you take some time out. There is nothing wrong with that. It’s better to have a temporary time out than a permanent one. During your time out enjoy life. Do something fun that will ignite your passion again and remind you of what you want to do and are capable of.

At the moment when I let fear overcome my rational thoughts and I think the plane is going to fall from the sky I have to use all my strength to talk myself around to being calm. I’ll usually hold (squeeze) Craig’s hands to rely on his strength, affirm over and over again what I know to be true- all will be okay and I will get to where I want to go safely, if I just have enough faith. And there lies the key; having faith.

Have faith in what you are doing. Have faith in your ability to get where you need to go, even if you have to have some time out to get there.

During your momentary pause if you just go with it, you will come out refreshed and with even more power to excel your growth. Just stay with your goals. I’m just coming out of a momentary pause. Several big things have been surrounding my life lately- my daughter and husband’s birthdays, a house move, my husband’s parents visiting from Australia and so with that trips away and so forth. (Hence the absence of my blog posts recently).

At times I felt overwhelmed and frustrated by it all and my goals seemed pushed away. I felt all momentum slipping and with all this came the feelings that it was all to much and I just couldn’t do it. Luckily for me now, I recognize what this is and so I know what to do. First I accept it, then enjoy and deal with the other things going on in my life, do as much as I can do well and with enthusiasm and then get excited because now I know my plane is just re-gathering and is about to take off!!

Know for Yourself: Don’t Die With your Music Still Inside of you!


Don’t die with your music still in you’This has to be one of my favorite quotes. Dr. Wayne Dyer has inspired many to find and live their true purpose in life. He first got me asking the serious questions about my life; where it was going and where I wanted it to go. I was at the point of my life where soul was dying- I was not living my true purpose. I didn’t know what it was but I knew that inside of me was a great song that was dying to be played and I was afraid of never getting the chance to play it.

Dr. Dyer gave me what I needed to start playing the first note. I didn’t like the song my life was playing and knew that it was up to me to play a different tune. And so I began playing it. Step by step, I began to open up and allow my song to play. It is being composed each day as I flow with life and I am so grateful that my music is now being played and heard by others.

Being successful is not easy, you don’t hit every note right the first time but you continue to practice. I called upon the support and encouragement of a community of people to assist me along the way. I committed to learning all I could about what it took to be successful and know for myself what it was I came here to do.

What music did you come here to play? Inside of you is a special song that was orchestrated just for you. What is it? What is your song? What is your music? Why are you afraid to play it? The world needs to hear it- of course they do as it’s what you came here to do. The world needs you to develop you; to play your music to help make this world a better place. The world deserves to hear your song!

Your responsibility now is to yourself; to discover what your true purpose is. Education can help you to know this for yourself. Your future depends on you, the music you play depends on you. Whatever you choose to do, don’t choose to die with your music still in you. Don’t quit on you!

There is no excuse for not trying. Where you are now does not determine your future. You write your future, the notes are there, you’ve just got to play them. We all face challenges, sometimes we just need a little help with setting our goals and gaining confidence to know for yourself.

On this special day today 09-09-09 an extraordinary DVD, set to change the lives of many people was released. In it contains the very knowledge that I used and many other successful people, to learn how to play their music.  It will build your confidence, giving you the education and the tools you need to start living your true purpose.

You can receive a $5 discount by entering the coupon code: 147551 at http://www.KnowforYourself.com

Get excited! This is the help you have been waiting for. Your music is dying to be played. It’s time for you to play it. Know for Yourself what your music will be.


Do Not Die with Your Music Still in You!

Get on the Field and Touchdown- Join the Evolution


We went to the UNC opening football match on Saturday. The stadium was a sea of electrifying blue, charging up the atmosphere with anticipation, celebration and downright fun! The Tar Heels exploded onto the field and spent the remaining four hours carving it up and smashing their opponents. Even though it really wasn’t a big game it felt like the biggest game of the year because of the charged up energy- the best is yet to come.

Just being there at the beginning of the season with all it’s charged up energy and excitement reminded me of what is happening right now with my business. We are launching tomorrow onto a new platform that is destined to transform the lives of thousands of people both financially and personally. There is so much  excitement and anticipation in the air, and we are all charged up for the season of growth that is to come. We are ready to drive our opponents all the way back as we take each player forward to score touchdown after touchdown. Just watch those firecrackers explode.

The question for you is are you going to be on the field experiencing all the guts and glory or are you going to remain in the nosebleed stands forever, looking on just wishing you could be part of the magic? We are taking things to a new level, changing the world one positive news story at a time and one millionaire at a time. You are in the right place, right time to join the evolution.


This is your chance to be there at the beginning of the season, to run out onto the field and make a difference. Information is one of the most consumed products on the planet and we are releasing an educational curriculum that will uplift, inspire and transform. Polaris Media group is about to become a household name. It’s time for you to get on the field and start running.

Have you ever Looked Fear in the Face and said ‘I just don’t care?’

A reminder to you today that in some area of your life right now you are the thunder before the lightning; the breathe before the kiss; the sun before the burn. You are at the defining moment of your life. The moment before the outcome of your destiny. What’s it going to be?

It’s time to look fear in the face and say ‘I just don’t care. I’m ready to be the lightning, I’m ready to be the kiss, I’m ready to be the burn and the flames'.’

This is just the tip of the iceberg- make that decision, do the thing you burn to do and have no regrets. Take that risk, just close your eyes and trust and throw that fistful of glitter in the air.

Ten Years in a Cave - the Resilience of the Human Spirit.

My travels around the world have allowed me to experience a different perspective on life. I have had the opportunity to meet and talk with many people from around the world who come from many different places. I have listened to many stories of survival, triumph, heartache, celebration, love and success that have brought many lessons to my heart and life. There are so many people and stories that have stayed within my soul for me to recall and draw upon when I need a simple reminder of how beautiful, bittersweet and magical this thing called life is. 

The resilience of the human spirit became so apparent to me on my travels through Asia. I have never met a more inspirational race of people. How often we complain here in the West of such trivial matters and how ‘bad’ we have it? I am completely guilty of this and writing this post today has humbled me and reminded me just how lucky I am. Life for most Asians, despite their ‘apparent’ lack of wealth is simple, humorous and carefree. It does not matter what hand they are dealt they pick themselves up, they forgive, get over it and make the most of what they have now so that they can improve their future. I miss the profound lessons these people taught me daily.

Craig and I traveled through Laos in Oct 2006. We followed the normal backpacking route but part way in decided to veer off track to have our own experience at Muong Ngoi, a small Laotian riverside village. It was quite a strenuous journey getting there on a hair raising bus ride followed by a small river boat - more like a canoe with a motor placed on it. Thankfully we stuck the journey through to our destination.

We arrived at the village and found several guesthouses at the dock but we decided to trek down to the end of the dirt road to give some business to the guesthouse at the end who would often miss out on the majority of the small number of tourists who filtered in.

We were greeted by the owner of the guesthouse, Nuang Jun,  who was gushing with excitement that we had come to stay. Her English was very limited but she immediately made us feel welcome. We could feel how much it meant to her that some farangs (foreigners) had come to stay and she really wanted to do everything in her power to make sure we were comfortable and had a good time. She began to feel embarrassed that she could not offer us more comfort than we would have received elsewhere. She had no electricity and little food to offer us and our accommodation was just a very basic wooden hut with an outside toilet and only scoops of cold water to dunk yourself with to have a shower.

For us this was not a problem, we’d stayed in much worse and for us we travelled for the experiences of the land and the people; not where we put our head at night. Anyway we loved the simplicity and peacefulness of it all. All we noticed was the amazing view we had of the picturesque, jungled mountains by the river and the warmth and happiness that radiated out from this kind lady.

Throughout the week we were to spend some time getting to know the family. Their 22 year old son, Gai, spoke perfect English and he became our guide and friend. He took us on treks through the jungle to visit nearby traditional hillside villages, where he taught us much about the history of the area and the customs of the people. He also took us fishing, traditional Laotian style. I spent the day in total amazement at how skillful he was and how easy he made it seem. I could not even cast the net out in the water let alone catch fish.

I loved spending time with Gai. Each minute was a reminder to me of how grateful I should be of all I have and not only that but a reminder of just what the human spirit is capable of doing and being. He was so determined to make his life and that of his family a success. He was really playing life full out and making the most of his not so fortunate circumstances.

Gai had only one arm. Even though I could see this whenever I looked at him, I always forgot as he could accomplish so much. He could do everything I could do yet better. He operated with total confidence, grace and reverence.  Gai was building a bar on the island. It was his dream and he spent every spare  minute he had bringing his dream together. He built everything himself. He sawed, and carved and hammered together every piece of wood.

He went away for months at a time to study in Luang Prabang, the city, and when he was home he would work hard to provide a good life for his mother. He was a good, loving and kind son. Every spare moment he had when he was not doing this, he would be working on his bar. The bar he was building was to provide foreigners with a place to socialize, drink and hang out. He envisioned his little village prospering with the increase in foreign visitors to the place and he wanted to make it one they would remember and return to.

He designed a beautiful, tranquil garden and his central focal piece of the bar was his prized possession- the big shell of an American missile, which stood proudly at the entrance to the bar. On the shell was the name of his bar. Our family lived in the mountainous regions of Laos; a place that was heavily bombarded during the Vietnam War. We learned about all of this on one of our last days there in the village. We sat down with the family to have a delicious yet simple meal by candlelight and by the light of the thousands of stars that lit up the dark sky.

The mother, in her broken English, began to tell us her story. She was only a young girl , 8 years of age,  when the Vietnam War started. The village lived in constant fear of the continual planes that flew over head, dropping their bombs of hatred upon a land of people they did not know; people who were oblivious to the world beyond their rice fields and fishing nets; people who knew nothing of the reasons for the war and who only wanted to live in harmony with the land and with each other.

To escape the devastation and fear, the whole village moved to live inside the caves of the nearby limestone mountains. For 10 years they lived in that dark, damp, cool cave; daring to venture out only at night time under the cover of darkness to tend to the fields so they could eat and survive. They had no light and little food. Many of their fellow villages died when they emerged from the caves at certain times of the day to satisfy their most basic needs.

For 10 years they lived in that cave together. The mother of our family met and married her husband in that cave. She entered it aged 8, and came out when she was 18, married and pregnant with her first child. Take a moment to stop now and think of your last 10 years. Think about all you have done, everything you have experienced. It's a lot right? Now think about that period of time; it's a long time right? So just imagine for that length of time you lived in the dark, depths of a cave, and that was all you experienced; terrified that if you stepped out for just a glimpse of sunshine and food to eat, you could be blown to smithereens.

I'll never forget the silent stillness I felt that night as I listened to her story. Words could never describe how it moved me, yet at the same time removed all thoughts from my mind. I felt such a deep love and respect for the courage, strength and power this lady possessed. I felt so small and undeserving in her presence. I felt that as a Westerner, even though in her eyes I had so much, in essence I had so little.

The story did not end there. She then went on to tell us about her son Gai and what we already suspected to be the truth. When he was eleven, he was out playing in the mountains, nearby the village, when he picked up a shiny piece of metal to examine it out of curiosity, and it exploded in his hands.

He spent 2 months in the hospital recovering. His mother was so grateful that he was alive and she did not lose her precious baby to that war that had already taken so much from her. He lost his arm, and took a lot of shrapnel in the belly and eye and bares these horrific scars with no shame or anger.

I did not sleep much that night. In the stillness of the night my mind played over and over again their story. I pictured it in my mind and tried to imagine what life was once like for them living in a cave not knowing if each day was to be their last. I couldn't imagine how someone could experience such tragedy yet be so forgiving, so grateful, so peaceful, so warm and loving and eager to make these foreigners have a memorable stay in their simple home. We essentially were their enemy but to them it did not matter.  How could they want us around, let alone want to please us? How could they be so forgiving? My small mind could not comprehend the magnanimity of their character. I could only learn from it and hope that I could only ever possess a small amount of the depth of their love and forgiveness.

As I finally drifted off to sleep I saw Gai proudly showing off his prized possession- his 6 foot bomb casing that stood in the front of his bar as a testament to his human spirit. It would always serve as a reminder to him of what he was capable of. That no bomb could ever stand in his way or change his destiny. He was bigger and more powerful than any bomb- it could take away his arm, but it wouldn't take away his sense of purpose, his courage, his ability to dream and achieve, his sense of forgiveness, and the peace he felt in his heart.

Michael Jordan's thoughts on failure

You can fail a hundred times as long as you can succeed once. Listen to the words of Michael Jordan on failure. He became the best at his game and one of the best sportsmen ever because of his failures.
It is because we fail that we succeed...

Does your Past Equal Your Future?

There are many that tout the catchphrase '”Your past does not equal your future,” myself included. There is a certain amount of truth to this statement but there is also a part of this that does not hold true which I would like to explain to you today. The truth of this phrase can imprison you or it can set you free.

Your Past Does not Equal your Future

What this means is that you do not have to have the same life that you led in the past. You can change it. You can make your future bigger, brighter, happier, wealthier, poorer, sadder, and so forth.

You can in fact make your future anything you want. You are not defined by your past mistakes. Just because you made bad investments, cheated on your spouse, stole from your co-workers, spent time in prison etc does not mean this is all your future will hold for you. You can make the decision to not let the past define your future any more.

Your Past Does Equal Your Future

However you can continue to have the same tomorrow as you did yesterday. I’m sorry to ruin this positive affirmation for you. And if you spend your days chanting this affirmation in the hopes that things change you have been misled. In order to successfully change your tomorrow’s you must understand the hidden truth to this affirmation.

Your past will continue to equal your future for as long as you continue to ignore the past and the lessons that have been there for you. All the trials and tribulations in your past have existed as an avenue for a lesson for you to learn, so that you may grow, in order to do whatever it was that you came here to do. If you refuse to face your past, it will continue to relive itself in your future, until you face the truth of whatever it is you need to acknowledge and learn. So in that respect your past will always equal your future.

Set Yourself Free From the Past

It is time to sit and face the demons of your past. Acknowledge whatever it is that you have done and whatever it is that has happened that you don’t like or are afraid of. Ask it why is it here? What has it come to teach you? Ask for the lesson to be shown clearly to you? and then listen…

Will you like what you hear? Probably not and you will find it could be very painful but the truth shall set you free. Your life will not change and you will not be able to create a brighter tomorrow unless you do this. Ask yourself ‘Does it really matter?' ‘Does whatever is hiding there in the shadows really matter?’ Does it really define you as bad or as a loser or evil? Is this who you really are?

The answer is no. You are a divine being having a human experience. This is the one constant in your life. The one thing that will never change is the divinity of you that exists in your core. This is all that matters. Your past choices and mistakes should not be taking an active role in your future. They are there to help you on your journey. You are not a ‘bad’ person because of your past. You may have made bad choices but it’s not who you really are.

When you face the reality of this truth you will be able to forgive yourself and move forward. You will see with total clarity that your past does not matter; that your past really does not equal your future.

The question to ask your self now is ‘Do you really want to continue holding onto the past?” Is it worth it? Do you want to keep reliving your pains of yesterday?….

…. Because you know, you can easily let go of it, if you choose to!

Be Yourself

My advice to you today is that no matter where you are or what is going on for you, turn the speakers up real loud and just sing with passion to this song. I love it! The message of the song is so powerful. It doesn’t matter what is going on for you right now you just have to Be Yourself!

To Be Yourself Is all that you Can do!

Your soul chose you for this Earth journey. You are perfect for whatever it was your soul came here to learn and be. Your soul needs you exactly as you are- so just be yourself!

When you're ready to quit just do this....

No matter what it is you want to do with your life or what goals you have there is bound to come a moment in time when you just want to quit. The realization of your goals takes time, effort and sacrifice. There are lessons to be learned along the way and parts of your character that need to be developed. There are things you have to be willing to give up to get where you want to go.

When you are going through this journey you will be faced with challenges- it's all part of the character building process right? It's often difficult to have to give up something in return for what it is you want to achieve. It often hurts and feels like it's just not worth the effort.

Without realizing it we often want to cling onto what we already know. It's a world that is safe and comfortable and so when it comes to having to release that we slip into the world of fear and so turn our back on our goals and the reward that lies in wait for us.

This is when what we want appears to be too hard to get, and for many reasons of our own creation, we begin to see how it can't and will not work for us. It's best that I get out of here and return to what I know best. Even though it's not what is best for me, it's what I know best.

These are the moments that are character defining. These are the tests that the Universe sends us to see if what we want is really what we want. Because if it is we will push through the desire to quit. The only way you can ever fail at your goal is to quit. If you break down these walls you will breakthrough to the achievement of your goals and it will be all the sweeter because of it.

It took me some time to come to this understanding. I was great at finding ways for things not to work. I got caught in a vicious cycle of things not working for me. I now see with such clarity it was because in a moment of weakness and fear I quit. There were many areas of my life that flourished and these were the areas where I rose to the challenge, was prepared to give up something to get what I wanted and just kept working towards the realization of my goals.

I have since learned the secret to success. When you are at that moment in time when you want to quit, the one surefire way to survive this and guarantee your success is this.....

... don't quit.

Just recognize you are in that place of fear, acknowledge it by telling yourself that this is all that is happening to you and affirm to yourself that no matter what you will not quit.
Repeat the mantra- Okay so today you've got me beat a little but I"m going to win in the next moment because no matter how bad I feel right now, I am just not going to give in.

You goals are worthy enough, be willing to release the fear to move forward.

The next very important thing you need to do to seal the deal and progress forward is to put one foot in front of the other. It can be as small as a baby step or it can be a giant leap; whatever your fragile state feels comfortable in doing. Just one small step forward and you will have defeated the fear and the desire to quit. You will begin to feel empowered and more like the winner you were born to be.

That step can be as simple as making a phone call, sending an email, journaling your current experience, rewriting or affirming your goals, visualizing what it is you want and reflecting on your why- the reason you are doing what you are doing.

You'll soon realize that it is your thoughts and your fears that are bigger than the problem or challenge, and that is easily overcome by recognizing this, not quitting and taking one simple, baby step forward. The law of inertia states what is moving will keep moving no matter how slowly.

Here is a great video that sums up the idea of never quitting no matter what odds are stacked up against you. These people could have quit at these turning points in their life. Imagine what would have happened had they given in to their fears.

If Today was Your Last Day….

My best friend gave me the best advice
He said each day’s a gift and not a given right
Leave no stone unturned, leave your fears behind
And try to take the path less traveled by
That first step you take is the longest stride

If today was your last day
and tomorrow was too late
Could you say goodbye to yesterday?
Would you live each moment like your last?
Leave old pictures in the past
Donate every dime you have?
If today was your last day

Against the grain should be a way of life
What’s worth the prize is always worth the fight
Every second counts ’cause there’s no second try
So live like you’ll never live it twice
Don’t take the free ride in your own life

If today was your last day
and tomorrow was too late
Could you say goodbye to yesterday?
Would you live each moment like your last?
Leave old pictures in the past
Donate every dime you have?
Would you call old friends you never see?
Reminisce of memories
Would you forgive your enemies?
Would you find that one you’re dreamin’ of?
Swear up and down to God above
That you finally fall in love
If today was your last day

If today was your last day
Would you make your mark by mending a broken heart?
You know it’s never too late to shoot for the stars
Regardless of who you are
So do whatever it takes
‘Cause you can’t rewind a moment in this life
Let nothin’ stand in your way
Cause the hands of time are never on your side

If today was your last day
and tomorrow was too late
Could you say goodbye to yesterday?

Would you live each moment like your last?
Leave old pictures in the past
Donate every dime you have?
Would you call old friends you never see?
Reminisce of memories
Would you forgive your enemies?
Would you find that one you’re dreamin’ of?
Swear up and down to God above
That you finally fall in love
If today was your last day

I so love this song by Nickelback. Read the words carefully, especially the highlighted parts, and make it your reality. Live each day like it’s your last. You’ll find it’s a total blast!

Leave a comment in the box below saying what you would do if today was your last day….. (and then go do it)

Stay on the Rails No Matter What

As a child I loved to immerse myself in Golden Books. I loved the little stories and pictures and would read them over and over again. I held on to most of them and now delight in sharing them with my daughter.

Little Golden Books are just that as they contain within in them little Golden pieces of wisdom. Who ever knew as a child that the words of a golden book held such priceless lessons that could teach us how to live a rewarding, successful and fulfilling life.

I re-discovered some of their pearls of wisdom just yesterday when I was reading to Kalyra the book ‘Tootle.’

Tootle is a baby locomotive who attends a school for engines so he can learn how to be a big locomotive. He attends many classes but the most important is ‘Staying on the Rails No Matter What!’ His instructor is adamant that the trains will never be any good unless they can get 100 A+ in this course. They can afford to ‘spill the soup pulling the diner’ and ‘turning the milk to butter now and then’ but if they come off the rails they fail!

Tootle wanted to be the NY flyer; the fastest train around. He began to work very hard to learn all he could but as time went by he kept getting distracted by all the fun things in the meadow and he would get off the tracks to go play.

Tootle had the makings to be the fastest train on the rails but he just couldn’t stay on them. Despite all his skills and deep desires he just could no help being enticed by the meadow. He began to fail ‘Staying on the Rails No Matter What’ and he was just going nowhere. His dream to be the NY flyer was getting further from becoming a reality.

The people of the village came up with a plan to get Tootle back on track and out of playing in the meadow. Tootle knew he always had to stop at a red flag and so the villagers hid in the meadow and at every turn of Tootle’s playing they held up a red flag and Tootle stopped.

He began to feel frustrated and disappointed in the meadow. How could he have any fun when he constantly had to stop? All the fun was gone and he found himself going around and around in circles. He couldn’t understand why the meadow was such a fine place to begin with and he longed for a green flag to help him get moving again.

Eventually he saw his teacher holding a green flag on the tracks and Tootle raced to get back on track. “This is the place for me” said Tootle. “There is nothing but red flags for locomotives that get off their tracks.”

And of course Tootle then went on to become the famous ‘Two Mile a Minute Flyer!’

What a profound message this story holds for it’s reader. Think carefully about it’s message and how it applies to your life at this moment.                                                                                      

What is it that is in the meadow distracting you from become the ‘fastest train around?’ How do you see these eventually turning into red flags? 

Distractions such as TV, facebook, wii, eating, playing, gossiping, non-productive tasks etc don’t help you to stay on track. Sure they are fun for awhile but eventually you’re going to get lost in this maze of red flags that just keep stopping you from getting to your destination. Pretty soon the fun will be gone and you will be frustrated, longing for a way out.

How are you going to get back on track and Who is going to help you?

Sometimes we need the help of a community and leaders to help us get back on track. Tootle’s community recognized his power, saw he was having difficulty staying focused on his goals and living up to his potential, and so they devised a plan to help show him the cost of his distractions and to get him back on track to becoming great.

My business has phenomenal success because it is founded on this principle. The community of people I work with in my business and the training I receive have taught me how to stay on track, ignore the diversions of the meadow and power on to be the best that I can be. There is always someone waving a green flag to help me just in case that meadow becomes too enticing.

It doesn’t matter how talented you are or how much you say you want something, if you don’t commit 100 A+ to staying on the tracks no matter what then you just aren’t going to go anywhere!

You Won the Race- What a champion!

The majority of everyday people I come across lately seem to be stressed and unhappy. Whatever the superficial reason may be, the underlying cause, in truth, stems from feelings of worthlessness and self-loathing. Let's face it we all have those moments when we feel like failures, that we are less than and will never amount to anything or ever achieve greatness.

For so many of us we proceed through life with this burned out feelings of failure and 'less than' the person next door. Our faith and our belief in our greatness seemed to disappear the moment we were born. How quickly we forget that the true essence of ourselves is one of a victor; a champion; someone who beat the odds to live and succeeded in a monumental form.

You are a champion! You already won the greatest race of your life! How did you forget your greatest achievement yet? Without it nothing is possible. You won the race to life. You won the race! The act of your breath is testament to the fact that you possess all the qualities of a champion.

You are reading this right now because you beat the odds and got to the egg first. It is in your genes, you were truly born a champion. It's up to you now to harness that power that got you here and apply those winning characterstics to the life you won the right to live. You don't have to worry that you don't have the skills and talents to be a success in whatever it is you choose to do, because you already have them. It gave you life- you just allowed these innate strengths and abilities to stay dormant for awhile. Well it's time to wake them up and get racing again!

How did you win the race?

1) Determination: You kept your eye on the egg. Your focus never faulted. You knew where you had to go and what you had to do to get there and you never once stopped swimming. You never thought about losing. Failure was not an option and so you acted accordingly.

2) Persistance and Perseverance: When the millions of other swimmers started dropping off like flies around you, you never once allowed them to drown you under. You didn't stop to gossip and whinge about how difficult it was. You were just as tired as they were, but you knew if you just maintained your pace and kept swimming you were in for a good chance of getting to the finishing line. You didn't necessarily swim the fastest, you just had the stamina needed to stay till the end.

3) Inner Guidance: So at this stage of the race, you had no eyes to show you the way. You had to rely on your intuition and guidance to help you find the way. You had faith in a greater power to help propel you to the right place.

4) Courage: It took courage to start the race in the first place. It was a hard and strenuous journey with only one winner out of millions. The odds of winning were very slim but you had the courage to step up to the plate and start swimming. Many of your competitors didn't even make it out of the gate- the fear got too much for them.

5) Growth and Trust: You started off small, you didn't know anything about what would happen to you if you did win the race. When you finally won you didn't stop growing. You kept feeding yourself with nourishment and you grew into something amazing and wonderful. The innate skills you possessed helped you to begin and then you allowed nourishment to flow to you from those, who from this stage on, were in a more knowledgeable position to help you grow.

6) Perfect Timing: Not only did you have to have the stamina and strength to finish the race first. You had to have perfect timing to arrive at the exact moment in the cycle of life when the door was opening for you. Your timing is divine, it always has been. Do you understand the power you possess from this alone? You beat the millions of other sperm and you got the timing absolutely perfect- in the right place at the right time. This is a miracle in its purest form. You are a miracle maker!

7) The loudest Yeeha!: It was this that started the race for you and it was this that ended it. When you arrived at that egg you had to celebrate the loudest, for the egg to let you in. That was the secret password. You had to shout loud and clear that you were ready for this, you wanted life, and you were so grateful for the opportunity. The doors then opened and you started this amazing journey you find yourself in right now.

You won the race. You beat the odds. You deserve the victory.

Your reward was life-Go Live it! What are you doing with your life? Are you celebrating and making the most of that reward or have you forgotten the sweetness of it and what it took to get you here in the first place?
You fought hard for this life. Don't waste all the talents that got you here in the first place. Make those other swimmers feel like they lost to a more deserving competitor. You are a champion, it is what you were born to be! All you need is within you.

You began as a champion, draw on these strengths that have always been within you, and continue to be a champion.

Nike says it best.....Just Do It!

I've been thinking lately of how I could put together a list of success principles based on my travel achievements. I've lived a pretty adventurous, courageous and successful life travelling the globe. You don't do that unless you possess certain qualities and character traits. I wanted to put together something as to how anyone could apply these same principles to other aspects of their life and achieve the same success. Success principles work no matter what avenue you use them for.

I sat down to think about it and put some ideas together when I reached a blank. I thought I would come up immediately with a list I must have had to get me travelling around the world but no list came. I reflected deeply on all the countries I visited, all the experiences I had, the people I formed friendships with and I said to myself "Okay Caroline, how did you do it? How did you have these incredible adventures to 33 countries and live in 5? What was it about you that gave you the ability to do all that?"

My response was "I just did it!" 'I just did it". There is no other answer. Sure there were many other qualities and character traits that gave me the ability to have the experiences but none of them really mattered unless I stepped on to that plane and did it. People always said to me how lucky and brave I was and wished they could do the same. But I never could quite understand where they were coming from because I knew they could do the same. For me it was easy, luck played no part, I just did it. I just stepped on the plane and went and never looked back.

I knew what I wanted and I took ACTION!

Did I possess many strong success traits before I did it? Probably not or none that I was aware of. I was young and immature and didn't know anything about anything. All I knew was that I wanted to travel and so I just did it. I just hopped on that plane and went.

Did I have a lot of money? No I turned up in London with no home, no job and a couple of hundred bucks. That didn't matter, I knew what I wanted and so I just did it!

Did I have much experience? No! It was the first time I had lived away from the safety and security of my parents. My first experience living on my own was in the city of London, knowing no one, with no money. Experience didn't matter, I just did it.

I didn't have support either. I was on my own but I found a lot of support and made great friendships after I just did it!

Did I develop strong character traits along the way that helped me to continue my journeys and grow as a person? Absolutely! I wouldn't be who I am today had I not travelled. It shaped me as an amazingly, strong and confident person. Would I be this person now if I never took the action toward my dream in the first place? No! Thank God, I just did it!

What is it in your life that you want to do or achieve? What is it that is holding you back? Lack of money or experience?- irrelevant. Lack of friends or support?- irrelevant. Wrong timing? No strengths, skills or talents? All irrelevant. You can find a million reasons why you can't do it but that's not going to get you what you want and shape you to be who you want to be. You've got nothing to lose but everything to gain. All that matters is what you want.

Nike said it the best- 'Just do it!' Those 3 simple words speak so much about the call to your action. Just take the first step. All the rest will come later. You're missing out on a wild, fun ride because of your inability to take action. Just do it and success will find you!

Commit To Excellence

As a teacher, it's always important to have a list of rules and expectations for the children to follow in order to have a productive and successful classroom. Expectations are posted on the board under the heading 'Commit to Excellence.'

These expectations don't just apply to students in the classroom. If you commit to following these, you will be guaranteed success in any endeavour you choose to pursue. Not only that, but you will create in yourself an honest, responsible, and passionate person of high integrity.

Be Accountable and Responsible
Step up to the plate and take ownership of your life and actions. Do what needs to be done, when it needs to be done,without complaints. Be accountable for your actions and give up the blame game. Develop the ability to choose and respond to situations, don't react.

Be Prepared
Turn up with what you need to be successful. Do your homework, know what you need to get the task done. Be ready for whatever life might throw at you, anticipate the challenges that lie ahead and have a plan of action at the ready. You'll rarely be taken by surprise.

Honesty is the BEST Policy
It doesn't matter what has happened, if you are honest about it, we can work through it and deal with the matter. A lack of honesty always makes things so much worse. Nothing can be fixed nor changed without first being honest about the situation. You want people to have faith in you and to trust your word. You want to have faith in you also and if you lie, the man in the mirror is just not going to like who he sees staring back.

Always Do Your Best
Mediocre effort produces mediocre results. It's not whether you win or lose, it's how you play the game. And if you lose sometimes, but you've given it 110%, then you have won! Success is always yours when you give it your all.

Live with Passion
This is my favorite of the bunch, as it means to just let loose and enjoy life to the fullest in all of its delightful aspects. You will be rewarded with so much joy when you just live with excitement, even about the smallest things. Bound out of bed everyday; greet people with love, enthusiasm and excitement; feel your emotions with intensity; put your whole soul into all you do and try new things without restraint. Your energy will be contagious, people and success will just be drawn to you. Life rewards those who live it!

Are you ready to commit to excellence? It's very easy once you post these simple expectations on your wall. Follow them diligently and there is no outcome other than success and happiness.

From the Struggle Comes the Ability to Fly

When setting goals and reaching for your dreams it is important that you focus solely on the end result that you want. You must put all your focus and energy into already having received that dream into your world. You must not focus on or worry about how your desires will be bought to you. That is the job of the Universe. You work together. You decide what you want, the Universe decides how it will come to you. The most important thing we need to do is ACT. Every thought, impulse or inspirational flashes must be acted upon immediately. That is the role each of you play to work synergistically and this is where the true power lies.

The problem is that a lot of people lack the faith in the Universe to do this. It's scary to not have the control especially when you can't see what is happening. The attainment of your goal will not come without challenges and upheaval, this is all part of the process too. And you need to recognise when you are in the midst of the storm and know how to weather it. You cannot quit! This is the only way you can fail, if you quit!

When you find yourself in this situation and you want to throw in the towel, you have to shut off your logical mind. Block it out, it doesn't know anything. It has to always be in control and that's not what you need to bring forth your dreams and desires; you need the power of the Universe to be in control.

When things don't seem or look like they are working, the best thing that you can do is get excited!! This means that the Universe has something bigger and better planned for you. Think about times in your life when this has happened before, the end result always works out better than the how you had planned in your mind. The Universe knows what is the best way to bring about your goals. This is the Universe's responsibility. What a relief that the Universe is going to take care of the hard stuff for you! It might want you, for whatever reason, to take many paths before you get to the end result- but you will get there.

When you focus on your desires you attract them in from the metaphysical world. When the desires cross the border into the physical world it meets tension. This is when things look like they aren't working out. There are rough seas. This is just a transition stage across the border. This is where most people give up, but you must remain steadfast in your belief in the attainment of your goals. Stay with your focus, let loose and just allow your desires to cross over to the physical side. If you focus continually on your ideal, it will come to you eventually.

A great analogy to help you understand how this works is that of the butterfly. When the butterfly comes out of it's cocoon, it goes through a great struggle trying to get out. This struggle is vital, as it strengthens the butterfly's wings, which allows it to fly. Without this struggle the butterfly would never survive.

From the struggle comes life, beauty, perfection and the ability to fly......

I'm sure some of you have already seen this great video that is spreading like wildfire around You Tube. If you haven't you need to watch it now. It is a great video that demonstrates the power of celebration. I felt an immediate uplifiting of joy when I watched this. What a great way to begin your married life.! These people really took the true meaning of celebration. They just let loose and showed how excited and overjoyed they felt for their loved ones marriage.

Can you imagine the excitement and energy that would have stayed with this wedding until the last drink was drunk? It will be a wedding that will be forever remembered by all attendees and bride and groom forever. This is what happens when you use the power of celebration. It catches everyone in it, and everyone has a wild and memorable time and that powerful energy continues to travel on long after the wedding is over.

Too often we get bogged down in tradition and what we're "supposed' to do by society's standards and forget what it's all about. And that just doesn' t relate to weddings, it relates to everything in life. It's all about just enjoying the moment, everything else is insignificant and will not be remembered.

Life should be a celebration- everyday! We should take everything that happens in our life, the good, the bad, the big, the small and just let go and celebrate it like these people did. We should be supporting each other and celebrating each other's joys and triumphs as well. Forget all your troubles and just celebrate. Let loose, turn on the music, jump around and dance like no one is watching. Be grateful for what you have and just celebrate life. It rocks!

Let Your Light Shine

I wanted to share with you today one of the most inspiring pieces of writing I've ever heard. I first heard it through the movie Coach Carter but have since learned that it was penned by Marianne Willamson.

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are Powerful Beyond Measure.

It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.
Your playing small does not serve the world
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you.

We are all meant to shine as children do.
It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone
And as we let our own light shine
We unconsciously give other people permission to do the same
As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

I believe it should be given to every child at birth and read to them every night so it becomes ingrained in their soul and they then know it to only to be TRUTH. Nothing that happens to them in their life will ever deter them from this deep and abiding truth.

I often imagine how beautiful the world would be if this were so. We are born with a light inside of us that burns brightly. Just spend any time with a baby or young child and you will instantly feel this light stirring something inside of you. It is your light's recognition of one that is more powerful than yours, only because it is allowed to shine freely. A baby is so pure and innocent, so unconditioned and so accepting, trusting and loving; their light shines so brightly.

It is only as a child grows that the light is diminished. Diminished by circumstances, by events, by the words and actions of others until a child soon forgets how to let their light shine. The child grows into an adult and the world becomes a little darker.

To remove the darkness all we need to do is light up what is most powerful and special about us. Why do we hide it away? We feel that playing small benefits others; that we are preserving their self-esteem and sense of security. We think that it helps others to feel better when in reality it doesn't. It makes them feel as if they too have to play small. Celebrating your power does not mean that you think you are better than anyone else, it's just saying 'Hey, I'm a cool being because.... tell me, what makes you great?' Each of us have our own light of unique greatness that contributes to making this planet a special place!

You are not inadequate you are powerful beyond measure. There is a powerful light of truth and goodness that exists inside of you. If you allow this light of yours to shine brightly it will unconsciously allow others to do the same. You will allow others to begin to see their light and let it shine. You will be serving the world.

There is much about you that deserves celebrating. Do not fear your greatness, celebrate it, let it shine for the world to see. You will find that you will then enjoy celebrating the greatness of others. We all have this light, let us not darken it anymore.

Make YOUR Future Bigger than Your Past....

Driving in my car the other day I had an 'aha' moment and finally discovered the reason why my life took a serious nosedive for a couple of years. I could never work out what had gone wrong to make my life turn from near perfect to not so great.

I was utilizing my time by listening to empowering Personal Development CD's rather than crappy radio which only plays a constant stream of ads, DJ dribble and the same songs played over and over again. I'd rather use that time to develop me to make my life outstanding. I was listening to 'The Laws of Lifetime Growth' by Dan Sullivan and Catherine Nomura and what I heard made all the pieces of the puzzle click into place.

Dan says that to achieve lifetime growth and success you must make your future bigger than your past. A past is rich with experiences that provide raw material for an even bigger and brighter future. Your future is your property; it exists ONLY in your mind, therefore you can choose to make it whatever you like. A bigger future is a vision, an improvement of the qualities of your life now. You have to believe that a bigger future is possible. A bigger future is about what you choose to do with the time you have left.

I suddenly realized my problem and how to fix it. I had been making my past so much bigger than my future and how could I not. I had spent almost 10 years travelling the world. Craig and I spent the first 5 years of our marriage backpacking the globe. We trekked through many countries of Asia, Africa, the UK and America, as well as living in Dublin-Ireland, Bangkok-Thailand, Western Australia and Raleigh-North Carolina. Before that I had lived in London for two years and travelled through Europe.

We lived a total carefree existence. When we were travelling, our future adventures and experiences were always going to be bigger than our last adventure. Life was full of passion, fun and success. And then we decided to return to Australia to 'settle' and without realizing it, our future became very small. How could a life of working just to pay the bills possibly be bigger than our past? It wasn't, and we began to die inside, so we stopped growing and life became very small and meaningless.

I had thought that my fun-filled, adventurous life was over. I stopped believing and dreaming of a bigger future, I couldn't imagine there could be one (the power of a thought). That is the only thing that changed my life; I thought it into that mundane purpose-less existence.

So what do you do? How could I make my future bigger than my incredible past? Simple, think like this "If everything I've done so far is just the beginning, then what is next?"
Whoa!! What a mind shift. You mean that amazing travelling life I lived is just the beginning? Well doesn't that make for an incredible future in store for me! I am just bursting with excitement again. With that very simple shift in thinking, my future is now so so much bigger than my past. It's electrifying. My world is already having dramatic improvements and I am travelling and living life again.

Boy if this ....

...was just the beginning of my future - then My Goodness imagine what my future must now hold for me!! If I created this past before and now I know I can create an even bigger future, than wahoo let's get creating. I am so empowered to live a compeltely full life and all I can now say is

Trump and Kiyosaki Support the Network Marketing Industy

I am constantly gobsmacked by the amount of negative attention the network marketing industry receives. Network marketing allows anyone to have the opportunity to make a lot of money and quickly. It also provides systems, leadership, training, and a community of supportive people who are celebrating you and working with you to help you rise to the top of success. Why wouldn't anyone want to be involved in it? When I think of network marketing I think of freedom, wealth, security, support, self-improvement, success, lifestyle choices and control over my life. I love that I can set my income and work hours and I'm working to receive the benefits not to make one person at the top rich.

Okay so my words might not hold much weight for you. So I"m going to start off with the words of some very influential, wealthy businessmen. A millionaire and a billionaire- both self made. I'm sure you've heard of them, Robert Kiyosaki and Donald Trump. Now I don't know about you but I usually pay attention when either of them speak as they are where I want to be. They know how to create wealth and the best way to do it.

Donald Trump was on the Dave Letterman show one night and Dave asked him if he lost everything what would he do?....and Trump replied: "I would find a good network marketing company and get to work!".... to which the audience laughed and jeered at him. He then replied to the audience by saying:..."that's why I am up here and you are all sitting down there!"

What I love and respect the most about Donald Trump is that he understands real results takes work and that he always takes full responsibility for his choices in life. Back in the 90's when everything in Real Estate was busting Trump was heavily in debt and was on the brink of failure and bankruptcy. No one gave him a hope of surviving the disaster, no one except Trump.

Trump could have blamed so many things for his dire situation: the economy, bad loans, the real estate industry... but he didn't. Trump blamed himself! He took responsibility for the position he was in and he was there simply because 'he took his eye off the game'. Because he could accept responsibility for his position, he could choose otherwise and he turned his situation around and became the billionaire real estate mogul that he is today.

Too often I hear in the network marketing industry people bad mouthing it because they failed. Legitimate opportunities that can offer someone a more rewarding and fulfilling life are labelled as scams because some individuals entered into it expecting a free ride and weren't willing to put in the work and follow the systems and take responsibility for their success or failures. Network marketing works - just ask Trump or Kiyosaki. If it didn't work for you it's because of the choices you made, accept it and choose otherwise. (Yes there are legitimate scams out there as well and if you got done by one accept that it happened because you didn't do your due diligence and you expected something for nothing).

Robert Kiyosaki gives the best explanation of network marketing and why it's an amazing wealth creation tool. As he explains it, the top of the network marketing industry is NOT like traditional corporate systems which only allows one person to get to the top. The corporate system is really a pyramid as there is very little room at the top for more than one person's success. "Network marketing is a reverse pyramid: it's primary focus is to bring more people to the top. It's a pyramid that pulls you up instead of pushing you down. A network marketing business gives everyone access to what used to be the domain only of the rich".

He also states that you don't make much money unless you help others to be successful as well (wow..People working together.. how revolutionary) and that another beauty of network marketing is that it develops your emotional intelligence and well as your business skills.

Why do people fail in network marketing? Kiyosaki says it's because either you quit too early, or making money is your primary focus when it should be on helping others to become successful.

Well, I am certainly following the advice of these two successful, wealthy businessman on how to create wealth. I'm not listening to Joe Bloe down the road who hasn't managed to get off his comfy couch to create real results. Follow in the footsteps of those you wish to be like.

What do I love the most about this business?

1) The strong, supportive community of like-minded individuals who are cheering me on with every step I make. In the Corporate world do you think you could phone the guy at the top and say
"Hi, I want to be like you, how did you do it, can you help me be as good as you and help me to get there quickly?" Do you think that would be a long conversation?
I have immediate access to self-made millionaires who willingly offer me advice as to how to do the same thing as them, they support, train and encourage me - their success depends on my success! They have a financial interest in me being successful! A true co-operative environment in which success could be the only outcome (if it's not then the only variable is you!)

2) A strong focus on Personal Development and growing as a person. Your income can only grow as much as you do. I work on myself everyday and I'm provided with empowering tools to do so. My life is dramatically improving in all areas. I'm learning how to create the life of my choosing.

3) Very low start up costs in comparison to other business models but with fantastic rewards. It's a fact that many traditional bricks-and-mortar type businesses and franchises can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars in starting capital, and typically you may not see a profit for 18-24 months. You can make unbelievable money in Network marketing in a short period of time if you are prepared to do the work and follow the system.

4) A brilliant lifestyle. I can work from home, or anywhere in the world I like that has an Internet connection. I set my own hours and have time and financial freedom to do what I love. I meet people from all around the world and travel to amazing places.

I invite you to think carefully about the advice of Donald Trump and Robert Kiyosaki. Both are strong supporters of the network marketing industry and know it's the fastest way for anyone to achieve wealth. Now you just have to decide if you have what it takes to be successful in the industry as it works the only variable factor in it is YOU!
