Play It Safe and Survive — Is That Enough?

We use the word “magic” as if it’s something unexplainable and beyond our ability…

Why… You’re Worth It!

Are You Brave Enough to Use the Power of Your Mind? (Reason #5)
Your mind is the most powerful and creative tool known to man. What I say in my book is that quantum physicists have discovered you control energy and turn it into matter. YOU DECIDE what matter it will become — you do that with your thoughts. You do choose your reality. How  awesome.
But, are you brave enough to go for what you truly want? Most people are not…

Dream Big!
Pleasing others makes for a meaningless life. (excerpt of article by Janet on American existential psychologist and author Rollo May said, “The opposite of courage in our society is not cowardice, it is conformity.”

Are You Searching for a Heart of Gold?
Look inside. You’ll always find your heart of gold IN YOU first.
“May your heart always be joyful. May your song always be sung.” ~~ Bob Dylan
Do you secretly sense something is missing? Perhaps you want to shine, be extraordinary and authentically YOU.

The Reasons People Struggle to Achieve Their Goals
Janet Poole was interviewed by Bill Leff from Radio 720 WGN – The Voice of Chicago.
Listen now to Janet Poole’s interview with Bill Leff

Here’s some of what we talked about:
♦ What was it that happened in childhood, which meant by the time you were 8 years old you were probably already doubting and limiting what you can achieve?
♦ Instead of living “outside the box”, has your box just got smaller – and are you still inside?
♦ Loving yourself FIRST and why it’s essential to a fulfilled and happy life – for you and everyone else!
… and more : )

What Does it Mean When a Person Says, “Something is Missing in My Life”?
We tend to complicate life, when it’s actually quite simple.
“Something is missing” means a few things (read on for those) but solving it starts with ONE thing…
We LOVE goals. We are goal seeking beings. To be truly happy and fulfilled, it’s important we have a goal.
We’ve lost touch with ourselves, we’ve forgotten what we need to make us happy – and keep us happy.
Without a goal, we are lost.
Without a goal we have no destination.
Without a goal, we feel empty and unfulfilled.

How Could Every Failure Be a Success?
We never “fail”… we’re just afraid we might.
(and who decides it’s “failure” because really and truly there’s no such thing : )
Even if you say you’ve failed I’d say, “Congratulations – you’re moving… many are stuck so far back in fear, they might never move! You’re already further ahead.”

“By THOUGHT, the thing you want is brought to you;
by ACTION you receive it.”
~~ Wallace D. Wattles
