Dreams? Wants? What are yours?

20 08 2012

Everybody has dreams or wants in life, so the question I pose today is what are your dreams or wants?

Do you want time to party?

Do you want to help others?

Do you dream of a european vacation?

Do you dream of a nice new car?

What is it that motivates you in your life?  What is it that makes you want to be your best to try and achieve a new level in your life?  I know for me, travel is high up on the list.  In fact this year Shaklee has announced the Top Achievers Trip, and it is to Paris!  Do I want and dream of that trip…..YES I DO!  Not only is it a trip to Paris, but it includes something that I don’t think I’d ever be able to have without Shaklee.  One night, only the Top Achievers from Shaklee will be in the Louvre!  Can you imagine being in the Louvre with people that you know or have something in common with?  That will be EPIC!

So I challenge you all to find something that makes you dream or something that you want, and make that a motivation in your life.  It’s amazing what kind of power you can get from a want or dream.

If you want to join me in the dream of Paris, let’s get this party started and get you on a road to success, wealth, health, and freedom!  And if you aren’t quite ready for that step yet, follow my blog and maybe I can be a help to motivate you in whatever you are trying to achieve!  Carpe Diem!!





Opening Up….To Success

26 07 2012

My thoughts today have been aimed at how everyone and anyone can become successful.  I realized that to be successful there are a few things that you must have.  I’m not talking about “the government” I’m talking about what a person needs in themselves to be successful.

Confidence is a must for success.  Knowledge is important, but not quite as important as confidence.  Drive is also very important, when you can push yourself to do what other’s might not think you can do is invaluable.  But, I started thinking that opening up, might just be one of the more important aspects of gaining success.

I don’t just mean opening up to people you are working with, or selling to, I mean opening up to the reality of success.  You have to have it built into you that you “can” be successful before you “will” be successful.  So on this Thursday afternoon, look at yourself and ask yourself if you are open to success.  If you said no, then try to figure out what can help you change that to a yes and get yourself on the road to success.  My 2 cents for the day!





Happiness is a state of being!

5 04 2012

In life we are blessed with so many different choices.  One of which is how we look at our life.  Do we go through the day dreading every task or chore, or do we embrace the fact that we are alive and enjoying another day of life?  Since you are sitting at your computer or on your phone or iPad, let’s try something.  In my last post I talked about Smiling and the effect that it can have on yourself and others.  Let’s try putting together Happiness, and Smiling as a little drill.  If you are like me sitting here, you probably have a blah face.  Meaning you aren’t smiling or frowning, just being blah.  Let’s try putting a smile on your face………….see how that feels?  Doesn’t it almost instantly change your demeanor?  If we can all work on smiling, and remembering all of our blessings we will begin working our way to happiness.  Happiness is not just when you get a new car, or toy, or outfit, it is something that can be had at all times.  It is a matter of controlling our thoughts and creating an environment for thoughts of good things that we have in life, and removing the thoughts that will bring us down.

How much more will we accomplish if we can work with a smile and an understanding that we should be happy that we can work?  I would go out on a limb and say we can accomplish considerably more when you attack a job with a good attitude.  So as I conclude my thoughts for the day, I’d like to challenge all of you, and myself to try and keep a smile on our faces as much as possible the next couple of days.  I would love to hear comments or thoughts on your experiences with trying this.  But for now, have a great rest of the day and remember smile and be happy!
