Wheels Up Tour City #18 Newport Beach! ~ Are You A Genius?

Friday, April 18th, 2014

Hello Friends!

I love long drives. I get into a state of introspection and enjoy the clarity it brings. Today, I’m driving to Newport Beach. Last week it was a seven hour drive to San Francisco. On that drive I had time to ponder, “What is genius?”

Genius is a practiced skill or thought.

It’s a skill or thought that’s brought to the level of mastery. Genius is not even necessarily good or bad. You could be a genius at poverty! You’ve practiced it for so long you’ve mastered it!
You could be a genius at drama. You keep repeating the same patterns and become a genius at it. I had a client once say to me, “My life is a soap opera and I’m the star!”

Most of you are masters at blocking your own success! Your beliefs are not aligned with your desires, so your subconscious mind creates sabotage. You’ve repeated this pattern so many times, you’ve become a genius at sabotage.

Wow! That is the power of a focused thought. Genius can come from it.

How ‘ya doing with that?

Do you have a proclivity toward negative thinking or limiting habits?

The first step in breaking through this is being aware of your patterns and then choosing a new habit (a new thought). Your breakthrough will come when you diligently focus on your new thought and you DO THE WORK to retrain the brain until that is your new habitual pattern and you become genius at it!

Genius at making and keeping profits.
Genius at loving yourself and others.
Genius at crafting a vision for your Team to champion.
Genius at holding (and feeling) the vision of your best life.
Genius at bringing out the best in others…

Genius is a training of the mind. It’s a level of mastery that comes from a focused thought or skill.

Are you willing to do the work to bring your skills, your ideas, your thoughts to Genius?

I’m not sure about you, but that excites me!

Feel free to leave a comment or an intention to break through a limiting habit or belief and train your brain to mastery!

I’ll check in from Newport Beach and San Diego next week!
Enjoy your Good Friday and have a Happy Easter!

In Love and Appreciation,

Wheels Up Tour City #17 Carmel, CA. “The head and heart of business”

Monday, April 14th, 2014

Dear Friend;

It may be the majestic views of the California coast, spending the weekend in stimulating conversation with college friends, or maybe it’s the wine tasting experience in lovely Carmel, but something has made me extra introspective this weekend and it’s great!

As my college friends and I were sharing our most profound lessons in life, I got present to one of mine:

“Never let success go to your head and never let failure go to your heart.”

That philosophy has served me well when I launched my business and felt so much fear and insecurity. At the beginning stages I was way too cautious. I cared too much what people said and how I looked…. until I didn’t.

Today, I see this same process in my coaching clients. They allow fear to keep them small… until they don’t.

Their limiting beliefs cause them to sabotage… until it doesn’t.

They are timid… until they aren’t.

Their sales presentations are scattered and wordy… until they aren’t.

Are you getting the point here?

Before you’re really great, you’re just okay. And, before you’re just okay, you may be, well, horrible!

Bottom line, manage your expectation of success and allow for your learning curve.

Never let failure go to your heart…

The other part of that philosophy is just as profound.

Never let success go to your head.

Is it time for you to rev up your passion for your craft again?

Where can you stimulate growth? What new idea, formula, process, or invention could you bring to your business model?

Creating success is just the beginning. Expanding that success; enhancing the possibilities, mastering your craft is where the real work begins. But, that’s where all the deliciousness of life is!

How big can you take your business? How creative can you make that path? How deep and significant can your create those relationships?

In other words… How good will you let it get?

Give yourself permission to be bold, wild, and unreasonable with your possibilities. You are created to grow and experience limitless possibilities.

Even if you don’t act on some (or most) of your outlandish ideas, the process of thinking about them and formulating the possibilities will keep you sharp, interesting and passionate!

(BTW, success is a bi-product of being sharp, interesting and passionate.)

In Love and Appreciation,

(You’re an entrepreneur! Lucky YOU!)

Retrain the Brain and Attract Success (Tap Into the RAS)

Sunday, April 13th, 2014

You have an amazing “system” in your brain called

“The reticular activating system” (RAS). The RAS is a set

connected nuclei located in your brain stem and works as

a phenomenal filtering system. The RAS is like a gate

keeper who allows only the things they are told to allow

past the gate. Here’s what that has to do with you…

In every moment there are over 2 million bits of sensory

information bombarding your sensory data system.

Can you imagine what life would be like if you were aware

of all these bits of action and information?

You’d go insane!

So, you have a RAS to help you filter all this stimulation.

Your RAS lets in and processes about 5 – 9 bits of

information in any given moment.

So, I’ve got a question for you…

What do you think DECIDES which 5 – 9 bits of

information pass the gate keeper (the RAS)?


level of vibration those most active thoughts create.)

If you want to “Attract More Success” then program your

THOUGHTS to represent the RESULTS you want!

The brain thinks in pictures, not words. so picture what

you want.

Remember, your RAS filters out everything that doesn’t

support your most prevalent THOUGHTS and causes

you to SEE what matches your most common thoughts.

Picture this…

Let’s say we were having a conversation and I began to

tell you about my White Maserati with Licorice Red

Interior and you began picturing my White Maserati

with Licorice Red Interior; what type of car do you think

you’d begin seeing on your drive home?

Yes! You guessed it. You’d begin noticing White Maserati

with Licorice Red Interior!

This is your RAS at work…

Whatever you THINK about, your RAS goes to work to


Just imagine the implications of this!

What would your RESULTS look like if you began

programming your RAS to see and attract Leaders for

your business opportunity, the ideal clients, your dream

home, fun and exciting travel!

Your RAS will filter out EVERYTHING ELSE and

cause you to notice only the things, the people

and the opportunities that you have trained it to see.

Give the RAS and spin today! Train yourself and

your THINKING. Plant your desired thoughts and

pictures in your RAS and watch what you begin to


What a gift. We are truly magnificently made!

You have the power to make it a miraculous day;

by focusing your thoughts and feelings on good,

beauty, love, laughter, peace, and JOY!

Your attention to these thoughts and feelings will

bring the people, ideas, and experiences of those

very thoughts and feelings. Watch what shows up!

I want the best for you!
