Welcome and thanks for stopping by.
Fall, for me, has always been a time of reflection. This year isn't any different. I have had several significant transitions and changes across many areas of my life, as well as the illness and death of a couple really close friends which I am still navigating through. Alone, each one of these was enough to knock me off balance and suck me back in the drift of ineffectiveness and 'survival mode'. My reality could have been a devastating experience, as each one layered how different my life had become as a result of these situations. Had I not been practicing and integrating all that I have learned and taught the last 20 yrs., I wouldn't be writing to you with such gratitude and humility at this time.
The work I do in the field of transformation is mirrored in my life. Allow me to repeat, not just my business, but MY LIFE! I would not have a life or at least not one worth living if it weren't for how I am better equipped to navigate through the natural flow of life and all the uncertainty that it brings.
I continue to realize at a deeper level that I am only as effective as the openness and willingness to continue to learn, grow and evolve. Each situation shows me what my next work is, and believe me, there is lots to learn. I don't claim to have arrived, reached enlightened or to be sitting on a mountain top as of yet. What I do claim is: to have put myself in the 'moment by moment' roles of student, participant, teacher, mentor and coach on many occaisons. This is what makes me able to share what I have learned with others to empower them to become more effective people.
I have had many years of coaches training with many hours in some of the most innovative and life changing disciplines available. I am always open to hearing what others are doing to experience effectiveness, fulfillment, joy and peace in their lives. With that in mind, I have been speculating with others on how effective they feel they have become with the changes and transitions they have moved through so far this year.
What I am finding is that there always seems to be an area people feel stuck in, or unable to move through what is creating suffering in their lives. When asked what do you want or what would be available if you were able to move through that situation, they light up. In one way or another, most have said, "You mean it's okay to have dreams, goals and desires that are authentically mine"? What I have heard time and time again is that choices are not made from the place of "I matter" and "what is important to me matters". Most choices are made in an attempt to please others, avoid conflict, be safe, fit in, be accepted or loved, fix, control, manipulate and the list continues. If that is the case, then it would be safe to say that who we are is not authentic, effective or empowering. What experiences and results are not available to you when your current thoughts, words and actions are inauthentic, ineffective and disempowering?
The highlighted opportunities on this newsletter will address the key issues that will make designing, reinventing or creating from a place of what is important and authentic to you possible.
The end of the year will be here before you know it. Don't let 2010 sneak up on you without the experience of making 2009 all it could be as you push your next edge of evolution from who you are to who you could become.
Please forward my website address to someone you might know that would benefit from some of my offers.

Be happy to give of yourself, and you'll be happy. Be happy to make the effort, and you'll be happy. Be happy about working through the challenges, and you'll be happy. Be happy for the opportunity to transform problems into achievements, and you'll be happy.
Happiness does not come when you try to obtain it. Happiness is a quality that you can choose to add to any experience.
Happiness does not come from arranging your circumstances in a certain way. Rather, happiness is a very powerful, effective and delightful way to relate to any set of circumstances.
Be happy to be living this moment. And not only will you be happy, you'll also be creative and effective and purposefully focused.
Choose to add your very own happiness to the and ins and outs of life. Be happy for no reason and for every reason, and experience life at its best.
-- Ralph Marston
Become Your Destination
Good Morning and Great Day...
You can have everything you want. No matter where you are on the learning line of life all the resources you need are always available to you so that you can reach the destination you are seeking powerfully. You just need to call them to you. Did you know that once you set your intention and speak it with conviction and hold a strong and unwavering belief the universe will set in motion the flow of LIFE so that you receive all that is already destined to make your desires manifest in all the ways you can think them into reality?
By being the very thing you are intending to become there can be no other way than total success in the efforts you put forth for your goals to become real.
When you Become Your Destination your destination becomes all of the presence and power you commit it to be.
In life we all have ups and downs, feelings of being unsure about a course of action,
ways in which we can talk ourselves out of doing something, being susceptible to others
points of view of how we should be and many other roadblocks that inhibit and deny our true calling to be brought forth. Sometimes we call this weakness. I call it a lack of commitment to the inner calling that is seeking to express itself as our authentic self. Whether it comes from some fear or a doubt about one's ability the result is the same. We get thrown off course by the limited thinking of such beliefs and therefore we give in to mediocrity and sameness.
I know we all have a burning desire within to achieve greatness in the passion for excellence that calls for us to have it all. Become Your Destination in all you do. Align yourself with all the things you need to accomplish your goal. Think powerful and positive thoughts and above all believe in yourself because when you do all of LIFE will as well. You are destined for greatness which is why you are here so you might as well step into that and become the very thing you hold in your dreams. "There is no thing that can stand in between what you see for yourself... except if you can't see it.... and if you can't see it it's only because your not looking in the right place."
The magnificence of LIFE is etched on my soul
My heart is home to the passion in me
I see abundance everywhere I look
I know that I AM ready to have it all
Within me is a burning desire for excellence
I claim my destiny by setting my intention to
Become the Destination I choose to be
It's your day... MAKE IT A GREAT ONE
