How do you set your goals?

Most of you use one or more of the following:

1. A definite decision
You are proactive and choose to set goals knowing that a goal puts you into the driver’s seat . . . empowering you to BE-DO-HAVE more.

2. You feel pressured by circumstances or others to change, so you are force to do something different.  You are Reactive

3. By drifting
You drift into habits and before long those habits have become a way of life for you … it is what you know.  You are asleep at the wheel headed for a vision collision.

Our January topic was: What Happens in Vagueness ~ Stays in Vagueness
And, as a result of staying in Vagueness, by not choosing, you drift into habits, default into attitudes that determine your priorities for you. How is that working?
How do you set your goals?

Why not join us for our February Tele-Ritual.

Falling on your Face

One of the most common causes of failure is the HABIT of QUITTING when one is over taken by temporary defeat.

Failure is the Trickster with a keen sense of irony . . . the trickster always has his foot out just waiting for you to trip and fall on your face.

Well here is the good news, Mr. Trickster, if you fall on your face . . . you are still moving FORWARD.Falling on your face  So if you are working on something new in 2016, the trickster is out to get you, sooooooo YOU will need a great sense of humor!

What Happens in Vagueness, Stays in Vagueness

What Happens in Vagueness-Stays in VaguenessHow many people do you know who have never been given the “Gift of Direction“ and they have been “Out of Focus” living in VAGUENESS for years and years and years?

Can you imagine how many of these these people have carried a cargo load of abandoned, unrealized, underdeveloped potential . . . BUT . . . they do own a 52 inch flat screen TV! They are so cool — plus they have a big house, a boat, an new car . . . but if you pull back the curtain, you might find out they are just one paycheck away from disaster!
 But What Happens in Vagueness ~ Stays in Vagueness . . . right?
Vagueness is the city you go to when you want to WIN BIG with all of the gold and the glitter, with all of the ‘bright shiny objects’, seminars in the big fancy hotels, people shouting, clapping their hands–stomping their feet and they feel like a million dollars in the moment. Here is the dirty little secret that most seminar leaders who charge you thousands of dollars don’t tell you while you are in Vagueness: most people forget 90% of what they have learned after 7-days. Especially IF you went to the seminar in Vagueness, came home to all of your STUFF and it only took you those 7-days to come back to your SSDD. (same stuff different day)
Staying in Vagueness is worse than playing the slot machines, casino games (blackjack, craps, roulette). The LIE these 52-inch TV screen owners are living is a lot like the games they play in Vagueness produces a short term HIGH that has a head throb LOW that gnaws at you within days after leaving that seminar with the ‘would a’ — ‘could a’ — ‘should a’ s.
OTHER games people play in Vagueness are those whom call themselves “serial entrepreneurs” . . . they too have 52 inch TV screens and they live on a different street in Vagueness, because the number of distractions they are able to ‘manage’ is just mind blowing.
OK–WHO wants out of Vagueness in 2016?Join us for our FREE Tele-Rituals
M.E. = Mental + Emotional
That is a great place to START if you want to get out of Vagueness because it does start with ME–ME–ME. Getting out of Vagueness is one of the times that it is OK to be selfish as you Chart Your Course back home to where you are really dialed in and living ON PURPOSE.
You have seen these people who are really “in the zone” demonstrating the gifts they were given and they are not only making a living at it . . . IT is WHO they are.
These people AVOID Vagueness, they dislike themselves the most when they visit that city for even short stays. They hate it because they have lot daylight doing nothing and that feels awful to squirrel away their blessings. They refuse to step down to a lower level, which means if you are in their presence you have 2 choices:
step UP or step OUT.
Step UP to meet them at a new level, or step OUT and head back to where you feel most comfortable, living in Vagueness.
In reality you have those 2 choices right now: step UP or step OUT
This is an invitation to step UP with a group of people who are ready to get the hell out of Vagueness in 2016. We are creating the biggest step UP mastermind group on the planet. We are inviting people who have been living in Vagueness to step UP and show UP with is as we chart a new course in to individual achievement.
Age does not matter.
Gender does not matter.
Economic status does not matter.
Color does not matter.
Wave whatever flag you wave, what ever your orientation, we love diversity, nationality, spirituality, religion. Our focus is getting out of Vagueness for ONE and for ALL.
So we said, Tribe Leader. What we know is that your VIBE attracts your TRIBE, so we are creating a ‘getting out of vagueness Tribe’ that has a specific vibe . . . the vibe of ALCHEMY. By definition, ‘alchemy‘ is ‘a seemingly magical process of transformation and creation‘. Alchemists have always been able to transform their old metals, their old dead weight (that cargo load of abandoned, unrealized, underdeveloped potential) called LEAD into GOLD. Real gold–not the bright shiny fake stuff found in Vagueness.
So how do we go about the vibe of alchemy and transform an entire mastermind tribe out of Vagueness into a group who are charting their course into their true potential.
1. Spaced Learning: we teach on the 1st Saturday of every month at 9:00 am for 1-hour (that is free to you if you can get onto the call as space is limited). In January 2016, we will work on the 2nd Saturday January 09, because of the holiday weekend. So this gives you time to go over to to register your name so we can send you the call in information for the TELE-RITUALS.
So with Spaced Learning we teach, then you apply what you learned, then you come back for more the next month on the first Saturday @ 9:00 am for the next HELPING. And this is exactly what we are all about “helping”. Helping you to get out of Vagueness.
2. The Spaced Learning is the SUPPORT we are giving and it is FREE if you make it onto the call, the TOOL we have designed to HELP you get out of Vagueness is called the Chart Your Course Mastermind Journal.Chart Your Course Mastermind Journal
The MM Journal has 2-parts:
Part ONE: an Out of Vagueness Mastermind Journal that is layered with Mastermind Principles. You will gain clarity quickly!!
Part TWO: a Planner that charts your course from DREAM into small detail, then it turns your around from that detail and brings you back to the Dream in a weekly, monthly, quarterly rotation so that within 4-quarters, you will be completely OUT OF VAGUENESS. (as long as you don’t leave us for some bright shiny detour that you just have to have)
So our tribe will have the TOOLS and the SUPPORT to get out of Vagueness in 2016.
If you are interested in the TOOL, come take a look at
Tele-Ritual Register here

When you join us, we will send you a 22 page Blueprint (eBook) that teaches you all about the Mastermind and how to create your own Mastermind Alliance (and why that is Key to your Success).

If you want to experience the Mastermind in your LIFE then buy the Chart Your Course Journal and then you will be guaranteed to also get every Tele-Ritual, because we will send the replay link to you (that is ONLY available to those who have purchased the Mastermind Journal).
We also have a Stepping into your Vision Meet Up that gathers on the first Saturday of every month in SLC-UT. We already are pushing 100 members ready to Get out of Vagueness in January 2016, so you are welcome to join that group. And, we are asking that Tribe to help us to find a venue that can hold 100+ people for FREE 1-time per month on a Saturday morning. IF you can help with that request, send me a note from the contact box.Step into your Vision meet up
Bottom line-if you are ready to Get out of Vagueness in 2016 with others who are just like you, and you want to start at the same place at the same time with other Alchemists who are ready to turn their old LEAD into GOLD, the party gets started on January 09. You have lots of time to download your Chart Your Course Mastermind Journal, get started, and have your questions ready for the first Tele-Ritual.
See you soon!

Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer

The True Story of Rudolph

A man named Bob May, depressed and brokenhearted, stared out his drafty apartment window into the chilling December night.

His 4-year-old daughter Barbara sat on his lap quietly sobbing. Bob’s wife, Evelyn, was dying of cancer. Little Barbara couldn’t understand why her mommy could never come home. Barbara looked up into her dad’s eyes and asked, “Why isn’t Mommy just like everybody else’s Mommy?” Bob’s jaw tightened and his eyes welled with tears. Her question brought waves of grief, but also of anger. It had been the story of Bob’s life.  Life always had to be different for Bob.

Small when he was a kid, Bob was often bullied by other boys. He was too little at the time to compete in sports. He was often called names he’d rather not remember. From childhood, Bob was different and never seemed to fit in. Bob did complete college, married his loving wife and was grateful to get his job as a copywriter at Montgomery Ward during the Great Depression. Then he was blessed with his little girl. But it was all short-lived. Evelyn’s bout with cancer stripped them of all their savings and now Bob and his daughter were forced to live in a two-room apartment in the Chicago slums. Evelyn died just days before Christmas in 1938.

Bob struggled to give hope to his child, for whom he couldn’t even afford to buy a Christmas gift. Even though he couldn’t buy a gift, he was determined to make one – a storybook!

Bob created an animal character in his own mind and told the animal’s story to little Barbara to give her comfort and hope. Again and again Bob told the story, embellishing it more with each telling. Who was the character? What was the story all about?

The story Bob May created was his own autobiography in fable form. The character he created was a misfit outcast like he was. The name of the character? A little reindeer named Rudolph, with a big shiny nose. Bob finished the book just in time to give it to his little girl on Christmas Day. But the story doesn’t end there.

The general manager of Montgomery Ward caught wind of the little storybook and offered Bob May a nominal fee to purchase the rights to print the book. rudolph Wards went on to print Rudolph: the Red-Nosed Reindeer and distribute it to children visiting Santa Claus in their stores.  By 1946 Wards had printed and distributed more than six million copies of Rudolph. That same year, a major publisher wanted to purchase the rights from Wards to print an updated version of the book.

In an unprecedented gesture of kindness, the CEO of Wards returned all rights back to Bob May. The book became a best seller. Many toy and marketing deals followed and Bob May, now remarried with a growing family, became wealthy from the story he created to comfort his grieving daughter. But the story doesn’t end there either.

Bob’s brother-in-law, Johnny Marks, made a song adaptation to Rudolph. Though the song was turned down by such popular vocalists as Bing Crosby and Dinah Shore, it was recorded by the singing cowboy, Gene Autry.

Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer” was released in 1949 and became a phenomenal success, selling more records than any other Christmas song, with the exception of “White Christmas.”

The gift of love that Bob May created for his daughter so long ago kept on returning back to bless him again and again. And Bob May learned the lesson, just like his dear friend Rudolph, that being different isn’t so bad. In fact, being different can be a blessing.

Enjoy life…it does have an expiration date!
