My life has been gifted with new relationships that continue to develop each time I call the resource line and speak to one of your coaches, and that has been priceless in terms of what I have experienced thus far. I honor, respect, and congratulate you
This is so exciting, and feels like I am writing a letter to a friend I have known my entire life, and now have some new exciting information to share.
Prior to telling you where I am now in comparison to where I was, I would like to express my gratitude for the amazing team of coaches you have as part of this incredible transformation process. My Coach, who has been my light of inspiration and guide in an amazing journey of greatness, is an incredible human being. Her ability to activate the spirit and leadership in me as well as assisting me to step outside the boundaries of my own securities is something I shall always be grateful for. Along with her incredible stretch tactics towards greatness, I also have loved the opportunity in being involved in “Inspiration Conversation” with the other Coaches. Each of them has gifted me with different precious gems of information and I look forward to continually building these great relationships. Even though I have not had the opportunity in talking to all the coaches, I know their inspiration is close by and it is only a matter of time before I have opportunity to meet them and enjoy their presence. My life has been gifted with new relationships that continue to develop each time I call the resource line and speak to one of your coaches, and that has been priceless in terms of what I have experienced thus far. I honor, respect, and congratulate you for creating this incredible team of spectacular individuals.
Ok, now for where I was to where I am and where I intend to be. For as long as I can remember, accountability to work towards my goals has been a struggle for me my entire life. I blamed having limited amounts of time for not getting done what I dreamed of doing. I can now say with integrity and honesty that this hurdle has become insignificant and am now leaping over many of them as I run this race towards real and lasting success. I have and always had great aspirations to accomplish great things, not realizing that the smallest of actions far surpassed the noblest of intensions. Today, thanks to your principles, I have taken those small actions; I am paying the price, and have accomplished more in four months than I did in twenty years. I do realize that a dream is simply a dream without taking some sort of action on a daily basis. My Coach has assisted me to strive past the “Rule of Five,” and have adopted the rule of seven. I take 100% responsibility for where I was, and now take 100% responsibility for my new direction of balanced success. John Miller, the author of The Question Behind the Question, put a twist to the Serenity Prayer, and in terms of this incredible power of taking 100% responsibility I frequently refer back to his statement. “God grant me the serenity to accept the people I cannot change, the courage to change the one I can, and the wisdom to know… it’s me!”
I love your story about when one person calls you a horse they are probably crazy. If three people tell you you’re a horse they probably conspiring against you, and if ten say it to you, buy a saddle. Jack, I bought the saddle, lots of feed, and am presently taking the necessary action steps to become a Leadership/ Health/ Life Coach. I promise you and give you my word that you will hear great things about me. I have always had the passion and desire to be a coach, I have been told countless times that is what I would be great at, and because of the processes I have been so blessed to have received, that’s exactly what I will be. I too realize that this process takes dedication, daily successes and failures, and the ability to jump back up when I get knocked down, dust myself off and keep moving forward. I practice this regularly building my Isagenix business as well. Just like asking Patty out for dinner. Take action, ask the questions, appreciate the feedback, and regardless whether it is yes or no, I now know the situation remains the same. I now understand this, and know the next plan of action is simply put, “who is next?” The wisdom I received from not making it personal has enabled me to, as you put it in Create A Breakthrough Goal, to throw a 50-yard pass towards this goal and new mind set.
Each of the principles brought to the table were perfectly initiated in order of fulfilling learning by my Coach, followed by an enthusiastic agreement from myself. I found transformation in each and every one of them but found my favorite one’s to be showing appreciation to others and the impact it had on me as well. I told my Coach during the coaching session that followed showing appreciation, that my only struggle during that week was not being able to appreciate more even though I had appreciated many. I know that if I want more love in my life I must be more loving. If I want more money I have to add more value. If I want more appreciation, I need to appreciate more. Thank you for this insight!!!
Presently I am reading a great book, A New Earth, by Eckhart Tolle, which I know you assigned to the Jack Canfield family of coaches and I came across a couple of paragraphs that immediately reminded me of you.
Eckhart writes, “In a world of role-playing personalities, those few people who don’t project a mind-made image—and there are some even on TV, in the media, and the business world—but function from the deeper core of their Being, those who do not attempt to appear more than they are but are simply themselves, stand out as remarkable and are the only ones who truly make a difference in this world. It comes as no surprise that those people who work without ego are extraordinarily successful at what they do. Anybody who is one with what he or she does is building the new earth.”
In closing, I would like to express my gratitude for your GPS success system. The coordinates I have dialed in with your success principles and your inspirations have and are life altering, and the best is yet to come in phase two of my program. I look forward to seeing you at your Success Principles event, I will be there with my wife Lisa, as well I will be attending the Breakthrough to Success Week in Scottsdale AZ. this August, and again excited for the opportunity. Take care Jack, God Bless, and thank you for all that you do in making this world full of awareness successes.
