Good Monday Morning to you all!
The weather is dismal, however we DO need the rain. My husband and I went canoeing the Grand River yesterday *20 kilometers!! I say that, to say, we NEED rain. There were parts of the river that are flowing quite shallow. So it’s evident that we need the rain!
I have this really amazing bush in my front yard that whenever it rains, it holds the raindrops so perfectly on its leaves. This always cheers me up on a rainy day because I can look at it. Every time I see fresh raindrops on the leaves, I am grateful for the rain!
Question of the morning … are you beginning your week super-charged? Many of you will read this and think, “yeah, right!” Trust me, I know that feeling as well. For my Monday Motivation today I want to challenge you to re-train your thinking! It’s true, how we begin our day affects our whole day. Taking that into consideration, it follows to say that how we begin our WEEK can affect our whole week. First of all, life is too short to go messing up a whole week! Secondly, it does wonders for you to start your week on a positive footing. This is the reason that I have committed to always writing on Mondays! I believe strongly in starting off on the right foot. Instead of dreading Monday’s you can actually begin to look forward to the prospects of a bright new week ahead.
Sometimes you never know what a week has in store for you. Several weeks ago, I was going about my business, writing, blogging, researching things and spending time using Social Networks to promote my new business. Out of the blue, I was invited to attend a webinar, hosted by Jack Canfield, on becoming “unstoppable.” This fit into my schedule and I was happy for the opportunity to listen to the co-author of “Chicken Soup For the Soul” series, and extremely famous, Jack Canfield. This man is number one in the Coaching World. He is highly influential and very knowledgeable. I also was interested in seeing the “how’s” of webinars, as I plan to incorporate this into my own business. All in all, I felt this was a win-win situation for me. I could be encouraged and motivated by watching this event and I could glean some insight of webinars. I spent an hour and a half listening to him speak on the subject of Becoming Unstoppable. He was amazing! I was so encouraged and empowered after hearing him. My motivation level was lifted and I was soaring. After the webinar, I went back to writing an article that I was working on. About a hourish later, my phone rang. When I answered they asked to speak to me. The woman then said, “I am Jack Canfield’s assistant and he asked that I call everyone from today’s webinar.” (yes, my head was swimming, trying to take in the fact that Jack Canfield asked her to call me..) She asked me how I enjoyed the session and then she went on to say that Jack was scouting for some people for a program that he could mentor and teach. She felt that I would be a good candidate. She scheduled an interview for the next evening for both my husband and I to attend via phone conference. I hung up the phone and felt like I was dreaming! How could all of this be taking place in my life? I know that I have been pursuing different arenas to assist in my business building. But seriously, I never dreamed of an opportunity to be trained and mentored by someone of this caliber. Well you can imagine that my husband and I did our homework to prepare for the next nights interview session! We were excited and nervous. The next night we interviewed for over an hour. Before the phone call ended, I was accepted to be in Jack Canfield’s Mastermind Coaching Program! This was unbelievable news What a turn of events in my life! This will empower me to be an incredible coach and open doors in so many areas. I am humbled and extremely grateful.
I share this news with you for the reason that first of all, I am extremely happy, excited, amazed, honored, thrilled, out of my mind with joy over this opportunity. Secondly, I share this news with you for the reason that you never know what is coming up next on your path. As you begin to write out your goals and focus on what you really want in life, it is amazing what doors open up in front of you. If you had told me a month ago that I would be mentored by Jack Canfield, I most likely would have chuckled at the prospect of that. Yet, in two hours from now I will be sitting in my second session! Already the principles that he has instilled into my thinking has propelled me to a deeper level. I can only imagine who I will become after an entire year under his tutelage!
