Don't follow leaders - watch the parking meters

YES YES YES YES YES

Don't follow leaders - watch the parking meters

Huh?

Don't follow leaders - watch the parking meters


Bob Dylan said that



But Peter, isn't leadership important?

Yes it is - but I think Dylan was cautioning against blind leadership.

How many Twitter followers in How many minutes?


I just thought, then, I would lay out some qualities of good leaders I have known personally

How about that they:
  • Have a purpose much greater than themselves

  • Create a vision for their followers

  • Create 'alone time' where they are not reachable

  • Create a 'safe zone' for others to make 'mistake' in

  • Take time to relate to people as individuals by showing they care


I invite you to send me your additions to this list

What about non-leaders who anointed themselves or were put into leadership positions.

Do they:
  • Take glory, delegate blame

  • micromanage

  • use people as a tool to reach their goals

  • work on the whats without communicating the whys



Again I invite your additions to these lists - positive and negative

Why?

BE-CAUSE

YOU ARE SO WORTH IT

and who am I?

I am

I am a Good News Merchant
I am a Network Marketing Mentor
I am a purveyor of prosperity, and
I am my own personal guarantee.

50 Plus Commitment Equals?

YES YES YES YES YES

50 Plus Commitment Equals?


Say what?

50 Plus Commitment Equals?

Bear with me

It will be revealed.


I was doing what we do on Tuesdays

Sharing, Teaching, Learning, Having Fun

Rapping with the M-3/Leaders Club gang on the call after the call.

A call that was so important fate determined it be recorded for you

So here it is.




LISTEN TO IT





Now you know where the fifty comes in.

Fifty days left to the end of the decade.

Fifty days till everyone wakes up wondering where the last decade went to.

Fifty days to "zag" while everyone else is "zig" ing.

Fifty days!


But it doesn't stop there.



The power of being part of a true mastermind group is

that other things just show-up.

Yesterday in the form of the GREAT

Ryzelle Bayacal

turning my mind to

the great German Philosopher

Goethe

and his words



Until one is committed ...


There is hesitancy, the chance to draw back,
Always ineffectiveness.

Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation),
There is one elementary truth
The ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid
plans:
That the moment one definitely commits oneself,
Then Providence moves too.

All sorts of things occur to help one that would
never have otherwise occurred.

A whole stream of events issues from the
Decision raising in one's favour
All manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings

And material assistance which no man
Could have dreamed would have come his way.
Whatever you can do, or dream you can,
Begin it ...

Boldness has genius,
Power and magic in it.
Begin it now.


Goethe - 1749-1832 - A life worth living. A life worth documenting!



So putting it all together


1. 50 days of the decade left
2. Establish YOUR daily mode of operation for YOURdesires
3. Commit to carrying it out.
4. Zig while others zag
5. Position yourself for plenty


Remember

You Have the Power to Do and Inspire!

You don't have to get it right, you do have to get it going


BECAUSE

YOU ARE SO WORTH IT.

And who am I

I am Peter Pocklington

I am a Good News Merchant
I am a Network Marketing Mentor
I am a purveyor of prosperity, and
I am my own personal guarantee.

You - I MEAN YOU - Are A LEADER

YES YES YES YES YES

Develop Your Leadership Muscle


You heard me?

Develop Your Leadership Muscle!


You do know it is built into the species

The Alpha Code

The reason size doesn't matter

to the survival of the species.



Leadership is NOT about the number of followers

It is about the attributes that cause others to follow.



Two of the greatest words uttered

were from a carpenter to a fisherman.

FOLLOW ME

and the rest is history.


So, I wonder, what attributes came into play here?




For today let me invite you think about


the leaders YOU have known

the leaders from who YOU have grown

the leaders who have shown

YOU.




Picture them in your mind for a minute.

Someone, somewhere, is seeing the same picture

With YOU as the subject.


Rome wasn't built in a day.

Pick one quality.

One attribute of a leader you are proud to have followed.



Develop that muscle.






You need it to pick someone else up

and as you do

you pick yourself up!

You don't have to get it right, you do have to get it going



BECAUSE

YOU ARE SO WORTH IT.


And who am I

I am Peter Pocklington

I am a Good News Merchant
I am a Network Marketing Mentor
I am a purveyor of prosperity, and

Thank a BOY SCOUT

YES YES YES YES YES

Be Prepared

Say What?

BE PREPARED!

It's the motto of the Boy Scouts

Founded just over a century ago

By Lord Baden Powell.

Another time when the World was in turmoil.

Funny how turmoil happens at the turn of centuries, isn't it?

If you've been listening

we've been talking about that for a while now, my fellow

Soldiers of Prosperity

Wisdom sharers

Honorary Boy Scouts

Do-ers and Free-thinkers all

People of uncommon wisdom who refuse to subscribe to the "common wisdom".

May-be now is the time for you?

LET ME REPHRASE THAT!

NOW - TODAY - DEFINITELY IS THE TIME FOR YOU.

BE PREPARED.


Now I hear you asking - FOR WHAT?

How about being prepared - FOR ABUNDANCE.

As all about you are losing their heads and blaming it on you

As the sounds you hear are the battening down of the hatches

As people are closing themselves off to abundance

Who can the angels of abundance turn to?

Why - YOU OF COURSE.


How about

Take out your millionaire planners

Be prepared

How about - setting up a new bank account - just for the vacation of a lifetime you deserve - every year!

How about - setting up a new bank account - just for the additional taxes you will love to pay because of your increase! [The Angels of Abundance Do Not Suppot Misers!]

How about setting-up a new opt-in link - so you can share wisdom with those who are deafened by the storms of nothingness.

SOW NEW SEEDS!

So what if the ones last year did not take.


The Boy Scouts know the wisdom of preparation

AND

I know that you know


BECAUSE

YOU ARE SO WORTH IT.


And who am I

I am Peter Pocklington

I am a Good News Merchant
I am a Network Marketing Mentor
I am a purveyor of prosperity, and
I am my own personal guarantee.

Take It To The Limit - One More Time

YES YES YES YES YES

Remove the limiting pictures of your capability. Now!

WHAT?

Remove the limiting pictures of your capability. Now!

It blew my mind when I learned

as my daughter was going on her college visits

that Chinese artists used scrolls so that

they could tell - in images - a complete story.

The "picture frame" was a European invention.

So?

Think About it.




When they asked you on a Job application what your salary expectations were,

Did YOU limit YOUR capacity?

When you decided you would produce only in an 8 hour day,

Did YOU limit YOUR capacity?

When you decided on the location for your vacation,

Did YOU limit YOUR capacity?



When you decide to DO, not delegate

Do you limit YOUR capacity?

When you decide to DELEGATE, not to inspire

Do you limit YOUR capacity?

When you decide to love only those who love you

Do you limit YOUR capacity?

What are your examples? I'd love to hear them.



I challenge you to contribute to the universal dialogue.

Because you know someone who is limiting their capacity. Today.

YOU NEED TO HELP THEM.


So let me ask you

Did Michelangelo limit his, extremely proficient, capability?

May you, in your infinite wisdom, be less limiting

in YOUR capacity

BECAUSE

YOU ARE SO WORTH IT.



And who am I

I am Peter Pocklington
I am a Good News Merchant

How can I help YOU?

Power To The People - WE THE PEOPLE

YES, YES, YES, YES, YES

All you really do need, is LOVE

WHAT?

All you really do need is LOVE

Explain yourself, Peter

You're at it again.

"Speaking in tongues"

OK then.


So there we were again last night

On the call

and on the call after the call

and on the call after the call after the call.

Lots of friends

After all

a stranger is just a friend you haven't met yet - Right?



We were rappin'

Having fun.

Hanging out.

Sharing experiences.

What worked. What didn't.

When...

it happened again!

Something so powerful that it had to be passed along

FOR YOU

To do with as you please

Keep or discard

It's your life and you can do what you want.



Diane crystalized our business ethic into a sentence

that had been passed on to me in my teens

"All you need is Love"


Think about it for a moment and tell me it isn't true.

There really is "nothing you can do that can't be done"

There really is "nothing you can sing that can't be sung"


AND , the line that would not let go of me last night

"There's nothing you can do, but you CAN

LEARN HOW TO BE YOU ... IN TIME"



So that's what the last 22,147 days as a planet-walker have been about.

I am always a work-in-progress.

I am always learning to be me.

AND

I will always be learning

FROM YOU

Because

YOU ARE SO WORTH IT.


Thank You, Thank You, Thank You.

P.S. Power to the People - We The People!

I AM PETER POCKLINGTON

HOW CAN I HELP YOU?

Do You Mind? DO - YOUR MIND

YES YES YES YES YES

How is your mental nutrition?

Let me repeat

How is your mental nutrition?

If we do not feed the body, we die.

What are you choosing to feed your mind?

Is it dying?

OR

Can you feel it coming alive?



Don't swim tied to an anchor.

Liberate your mind from that which is dragging it down.


Easy to do?

Easy to not do?

It will be of your choosing.

Three simple suggestions from

the GREAT FRANK KIEFER

1. Stand Up Straight.

2. Walk with a purpose.

3. Always wear a smile on your face.

Baby steps - with POWER.


These alone will effect changes in your mind



As we know

YOU CHANGE YOUR MIND

YOU CHANGE YOUR LIFE

YOU CHANGE YOUR INCOME

YOU CHANGE THE WORLD!

AND

YOU are SO WORTH IT.

Inside Outside - The Power With-In You

YES, YES, YES, YES, YES

Don't let the Power with-in you be determined by those with-out.

Say what?

Don't let the Power with-in you be determined by those with-out.

What does that mean? - you ask.

Peter, are you "speaking in tongues" again? you ask.

Well let me confess up front

As with most wisdom there are many interpretations

And it is YOUR task to interpret for YOU.


Just try reading and discussing the Book Of Proverbs with a group of friends if you want proof.

Your understanding is colored by YOUR LIFE.



Back, though, to the subject at hand

Don't let the Power with-in you be determined by those with-out.

I offer up a thought.

We were all made in God's image

We are, in the words of that great document of freedom, imbued by our creator with an inalienable right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

So from our birth we have the ultimate power

Inside of us

In our subconscious mind

Like the physical heart pump that keeps us alive without us telling it to

it - God - is there

To be called upon.



However

Who do we listen to?

Are those with-out - outside of you -

making judgments about you?

Even making judgments for you?

Take a good look.

What are those with-out without?

Whatever it is

Take the ultimate step

Use YOUR POWER with-in to strengthen you

YOU

And then help those with-out remedy their without.


BECAUSE

You are SO WORTH IT.

***

Now I have a request of you

Meditate on your meaning

And, should you wish, let me know your interpretation

By eMail, Mail, phone, comment

I'd love to learn from you

BECAUSE

I am Peter Pocklington

I am a Network Marketing Mentor
I am a purveyor of prosperity, and

What IS your OPINION?

YES, YES YES YES YES

Who makes the decisions? Who has the opinions?

I repeat

Who makes the decisions? Who has the opinions?

I had a dream last night

I had been Masterminding again.

Hanging out with the gang

Having a laugh

Sharing WORD.



Then I had this dream.

I was addressing the members of the British Houses of Parliament

From the Podium of the US Congress.

(I said it was a dream, didn't I)

It was a full house

With the Leader of her Majesty's Opposition on one side

And the Prime Minister (it was Harold Wilson) central.

And I addressed the leader of the opposition

Looked him straight in the eye

and said

"Sir, I believe that while you have an opinion"

and then I look at Wilson (or was he now Churchill)

"HE makes the decisions"


I saw Wilson nod and smile and say something.

I found I had had a trifle sent to me at the podium

when I finished.



So what does that mean to you?

Why am I sharing this?

Again I ask you to ask yourself

Who makes the decisions? Who has the opinions? IN YOUR LIFE.

Stop now and think about it.



I pray for me...

that I find the right people to give me a true opinion

that I might make a good decision.




I pray for my children and grandchildren...

that they will ask my opinion

so that they can make good decisions

for them.




And I pray for you who are reading this...

that you choose the highest opinions

to make the best decisions

so that the you in you shows the greatness to others

that GOD - however you might perceive him to be - placed inside of you.



Know one thing

That when you change your opinion that "I can't"

You might just make the decision I CAN

Hopefully tempered with the WISDOM

to know I SHOULD.

But that, my friends, is only my opinion!

for you because

YOU ARE SO WORTH IT!

If You Go Down In The Woods Today - You Might Be Surprised

YES, YES, YES, YES, YES

Think As A Child Would

Say what!

Think As A Child Would

Arrest your adult mind for a moment

Give yourself the YOU from age seven.

Everything you ever wanted to know

was whispered to us all at birth.


Here is one example of those lessons.

=======================
The Tao of Pooh
=======================

Pooh always ate well. His level of attraction was immense.

The entire forest circled around him because...

in contrast to everyone else, he appeared very important.

And strong.

Eeyore was negative.

Piglet was such a nervous little fellow and always hesitated.

The Rabbit "hustled" people and was calculating.

The Owl pontificated and never walked his talk. His words therefore had no value.

The study of Pooh proves - SELF commitment always wins.

In your forest how many Eeyore's do you know?

Is there a Piglet in your life?

Beware of the Rabbit's - they are vexations to the spirit.

And the lesson from Owl is seems to be that Wisdom alone is not enough.

SO!

BE A POOH TODAY!

Your inner child will thank you for it

And your adult self might just be amazed.

Because

You are SO WORTH IT.

What Is HIDING In You?

YES, YES, YES, YES, YES

What is hidden in you?

Say that again!

What is hidden in you?

There is a lesson in the lives of others

History is full of people whose talents were overlooked

Until someone believed in them.

Albert Einstein was

four years old before he could speak

and seven before he could read.

Isaac Newton was a poor grade school scholar.

Walt Disney was fired from a newspaper because he had "no good ideas".

Werner von Braun failed ninth grade algebra.

Haydn gave up on Beethoven as a slow, plodding man with no apparent talent.

Why is this important to you?

What talents have been overlooked in you?

What talents have been overlooked by you?

What talents are you looking to develop in you?

What talents are you looking to help others develop in themselves?


I guarantee our lives would be different

If Einstein, Newton, Disney, von Braun, Beethoven

had not continued on regardless.

Fall in love with your talents

There are future generations that deserve to benefit

from YOU.

You are SO WORTH IT.

How Is YOUR Golf Game?

YES, YES, YES, YES, YES

You can only play one hole at a time

I repeat

You can only play one hole at a time

Now this isn't really about Golf

It's about life

It's about you being you

In the present.

It's about me being me

In the present.

The learnings are from Golf

From sports psychologist Dr. Bob Rotella

From US Open Champion Golfer Tom Kite.

They were demonstrated by the World Championship Phillies in every 'out', every 'at bat' last October.

They are applied over and over again by the Manchester United organization.

Resulting in the three-in-a-row Premier League Championships of the last three seasons.

Resist the urge to add it up.

If you anticipate your score you will not focus on the task at hand.

Focus.

Concentrate on making this shot great.

Visualize this shot hitting the target.

This shot.

Keep your mind on the hole you are playing.

Take care of the present

And

The future takes care of itself.

YOU ARE PLAYING IN YOUR OWN CHAMPIONSHIP

PLAY TODAY'S HOLE

YOU ARE SO WORTH IT!

Aye, Columbus!

YES, YES, YES, YES, YES

Christopher Columbus was a freak

Let me repeat

Christopher Columbus was a freak

Yes, Columbus was a freak.

Yes, Columbus was weird.

Yes, Columbus said the world was round

when 'common wisdom' knew it was flat.

And he was willing to risk all to prove it.

On three little 'ships'

The Nina

The Pinta

The Santa Maria.

Ships that led the way to the "New World".

For other ships such as "The Mayflower"

Columbus was turned down all over the place.

The moneyed of the time didn't want to know.

He knew.

He had to prove the 'common wisdom' wrong.

We now know how the story turned out.

So

Happy Columbus Day all freaks, weirdos and other special people out there!

Especially Canadians!

Know I am blessed

By YOU

As I travel my personal journey of discovery

Toward my 'uncommon'ness

Toward my 'New World'

Toward my continued servanthood.

May you be freak,

May you be weird,

May you prove the wrongness of the common wisdom

Through your willingness to pursue

Whatever it is

YOU - KNOW


You are SO WORTH IT.

Knowledge Is Not Wisdom

YES, YES, YES, YES, YES

Hear instruction and be wise and refuse it not

I repeat

Hear instruction and be wise and refuse it not

That is from Proverbs, Chapter 8 Verse 33

At the Million Mind March we are builders of PEOPLE

By seeking wisdom it appears

By sharing wisdom it grows

By teaching wisdom it is learned

AND: as we are reminded in Verse 8

"Wisdom is better than rubies;

and all the things that may be desired are not to be compared to it."


Today, because I choose to, I will add to the experiences of my life

Because I am not the person I was yesterday

And I am not the person I will be tomorrow

But if I say aware

I will see things that I have never seen before

I will feel things that I have never felt before

And I will BE THE BEST ME I CAN BE

Just for today!

And so will you

BECAUSE

YOU ARE!

And who am I

I am Peter Pocklington

I am a Good News Merchant
I am a Network Marketing Mentor
I am a purveyor of prosperity, and
I am my own personal guarantee.

My Mess is...

YES, YES, YES, YES, YES

Your Mess Is Your Message

Let me Repeat

Your Mess Is Your Message

This was one of my Million Mind March "Aha"s

What does that mean to me?

What might that mean to you?

At first glance I thought it was so simple

You are doing too many things at once, Peter.

You will never find what you need in that 'horizontal organization' chaos, Peter.

You are not completing your tasks, Peter.

And yes, all those are demons that I struggle with

That I need help with.

However

As we masterminded together another light went off

Yes there's my message, but is there not a larger message?

I offer one up for you today

In our humanity, in our human-ness

We are all imperfect beings.

In an environment that looks down on imperfection

Perhaps a little more authenticity

A little more courage to accept imperfection

A willingness to overcome the obstacles created by imperfection

Is just what the world needs right now

Because

If we share in anything across our humanity

It is that

Nobody is perfect.

Not a single human being.

So

God Bless the odd-ball

God Bless the person who accepts his imperfections

as a motivation to overcome

as an example to others

that they might receive.

May my mess be your message

that you might

BECOME.

I sent this today from my heart,

because


YOU ARE SO WORTH IT!

I am Peter Pocklington

I am a Good News Merchant
I am a Network Marketing Mentor
I am a purveyor of prosperity, and
I am my own personal guarantee.

Wellness Wednesday - Keep Your E-S-S In Shape.

This is a textual version of components from the September 30 Wellness Wednesday broadcast. The full show is archived for your listening pleasure at http://www.blogtalkradio.com/PeterPocklington

ATTITUDE OF GRATITUDE

Thank You to Dr. Chris Grenshaw, who was the chiropracter who save my life when I was six months old and not breathing.

Thank You to Dr. Cynthia Glendenning, who is, co-incidentally the wife of today's guest, Dr. Andrew Gottlieb. She introduced me a decade ago to an understanding of wellness that goes way beyond a simple adjustment of my spinal alignment.

Thank You also to Wellness Warriors everywhere, especially those in the chiropractic field who are addressing the so-called health-care crisis head-on by educating people to stay well and not become consumers of the sickness industry.

Thank You especially, for today's show, to Dr. Andrew Gottlieb, my special guest.

LOOK AFTER YOUR E - S - S

P:Good Morning, Andrew.

A:Good Morning, Peter.

P:Andrew is nineteen years in his practice. He is the co-author of the book "The World's Best Kep Health Secret Revealed". He is an avid runner and cyclist - so he practices what he preaches. And - he is married to another chiropractor, so you might say that he, his wife, and his two children are the ultimate well-adjusted family.

Andrew, as you heard in the introduction, the purpose of this network is to promote people whose work helps others. I know that is true in your practice, and the way of life that you have chosen. Let's start with

What is it you are passionate about?

A:Thank You for that introduction.

There is certainly plenty to be passionate about. In terms of our office work, what my wife and I are so passionate about is - Taking care of families,and improving everybody's health, and having the ability to see patients get well over time. To see people actually get healthier over time instead of people the typical getting sicker and sicker over time.

P:Yes, that is great. The being able to see people over time getting healthier and healthier has got to be very rewarding to you.

A:It is. You hate to see people decay over time. It is so common now to see people just get older and sicker - to see people rot away. To see people more active and more lively, five years, ten years, fifteen years after we've met.

P:OK, I'm living proof to that one. Hey you are speaking now as an experienced wellness warrior - but why did you get into chiropractic in the first place?

A:Well, Many moons ago I was playing college basketball at SUNY College in New York and I was diagnosed with high blood pressure. The typical treatment for blood pressure was to put someone on life-time medication. I didn't know anything different, so I said "Sure". Through a friend of mine, who said "hey, you should go see a chiropractor - instead of taking drugs every day for the rest of your life as a nineteen year old college athlete". So I did, I listened to him, and to this day I've never taken any medication for my blood pressure. It hasn't been a problem since I started getting adjusted - about twenty-five or so years ago.

P:Oh wow! So it was, essentially, a case of hearing someone who was not preaching the common thing. Listening to them. And trying it.

A:Yeah! Like anything else, if you do a little research, and try and get to the CAUSE of a problem, instead of just covering up the problem, it tends to work a lot better, with much less side-affects and better, longer lasting results.

P:That's a good tip for our listeners. Look for the cause of a problem, then do a little research for what is not necessarily the norm - though I must say that chiropractic has become a norm in my life because of the help that I've received from it.

In your practice, from the people you see day-to-day, what is it that gives you the most satisfaction?

A:The most satisfaction, of course, comes from seeing people improve their health. Change their lives. We, the people here in the office, use the term that people either "spiral up" or "spiral down".

So, something happens. They get injured or they get sick. So they stop being as active as they want to be, or used to be. So then they start gaining weight, sitting around on the couch so they feel even worse about themselves, so they do even less. You see how that just spirals down and spirals down.

What we enjoy as a team, not just myself bit also my staff, is to see people that come in like that. And then just a few months later they start taking up biking, or walking, and losing weight. Getting off the couch and not watching quite as much TV. Then they start feeling better about themselves and they start doing even more activity. Which makes them feel even better.

To see that spark come back in somebody's eye - it's a great thing to witness.

Can I tell you one quick story though, about someone that reminded me of?

P:Sure, absolutely.

A:We had a gentleman come in. He was the husband of one of our patients and I said "Thanks to your wife for sending you in. Why did you come in?" He didn't have any particular conditions or issues to deal with, but he had noticed after his wife had been adjusted for a little bit how much nicer she was! So he thought, if she can be nicer to me after being adjusted, I want some of that! Right!

So that's the type of stuff that we like to see. How it really changes lives. When you are in pain you don't really feel well. You don't like being around other people, or talking, or being active.

P:Yes. That's very true. If I can get my family to be nicer to me because I'm not being as nice to them as I might be because I am in pain... I could use some of that medicine! Even better, it's not medicine. It just becomes a way of life.

That was a great story, Thank You for that.

A:You're welcome.

P:I actually see that in the practice. The practice is always full of smiling people, and that's a benefit to life any way! You don't see many people smiling nowadays.

That leads me to my next thought. In this minute-rice society, that has got a lot of stress, a lot of pressure on it right now, is there something you are seeing more of, or wish you were seeing less of? What's the situation in today's society? What can people be doing and thinking about now?

A:That's a great question. You know, what we see more of over the past few years is...

I think people are getting more involved with crisis management, which means that part of our education process is taking them out of crisis management. To move them mentally into taking care of themselves for a lifetime. Making wellness a lifestyle and not just, "when I have a health crisis" , "when I have heart disease", "when I have headaches, or pain, or suffering" and do just enough to get over that hump. Right?

We call that crisis management. It's like going to McDonalds and eating fast food. And then you gain all that weight. Then you go on a diet for a few weeks to lose that weight. That doesn't really address the lifestyle problem of going for fast food.

So that's part of our purpose. To help educate patients into a better lifestyle. Not just "hey can you help me get rid of this pain, or this complaint?"

P:OK. So if you wait until something becomes a crisis it's going to take too long to fix it?

A:It takes a lot longer to fix it. Plus - who wants to have that suffering on the way down? You know what I mean? Because it always bothers you for a lot longer than you go to the doctor for. Right? So you can have a problem for five or six months.

I had a young girl in just this morning. She's had a problem for five months and its just been getting worse, and getting worse, and getting worse. Why would you want to suffer for five months before getting it addressed?

P:That's so true. But because we are trained somehow, or pre-programmed, to only wait until we are sick we don't enjoy the benefits of wellness - which is the whole purpose of these Wellness Wednesday segments.

So, in today's society we need to be educated. That's what you guys do so well. Be on the lookout for, and have something addressed - before it becomes a crisis.

Is there some advice you can give to help people have less of a need for your services, perhaps?

A:Sure! Live a healthier lifestyle. Eat well!

In our office, we use the acronym "Get your ESS in shape!" . E - S - S. "Get your ESS in shape!", which is
  • Build Up Your ENDURANCE

  • Build Up Your STRENGTH

  • Build Up Your STRUCTURE


E-S-S. Endurance, Strength and Structure.

The point of that is - these are the three necessary components to health, along with, of course, your nutrition. So, if you want to help take care of yourself, and not go into crisis mode, then go down those and work on:

My nutrition, my food intake. What am I doing for my endurance for my body? What am I doing for my strength?

Old people, when they are lucky enough to live long enough, have good strength, good endurance, and their structure is good. Long before they get old. So you can't wait until you get there.

P: What a great mnemonic that is. I'll have to remember that. Get your ESS in shape! E-S-S. Endurance, Strength and Structure.

Hey, Andrew, how do people reach you?

A:They can reach us here, either by phone - our phone number is 610-458-7777 - or they can contact us through our website at www.eaglechiropractic.net . Those are probably the two best ways to get in touch with us.

P:OK that's office number 610-458-7777 - or they can contact us through our website at www.eaglechiropractic.net

Andrew, I must thank you for the insights, for "Keep your ESS in shape", and, hopefully people will become more educated, keep in contct with you, and learning from you.

Pay Yourself Daily And/Or Weekly

I repeat: Pay Yourself Daily And/Or Weekly

Are you in control of your income?

Or are you waiting for someone else to create sales pieces for you?

Are you waiting for other people to recruit others?

Are you in a deadly waiting game?

Be honest with yourself.

Why is this?

Probably because you are working with too few a number.

You cannot "love" people into action.

You can control your process.

How many ads you place.

How many postcards you mail.

What is the "daily bread" that is nourishing the growth of your business?

YOUR Process Will Determine YOUR Results

Earn On Everyone

Earn on everyone.

Remember, Gold Diggers will always buy picks and shovels.

In the gold rush, some hit big seams, most didn't. But the people who sold the picks and shovels didn't care who was on which end of the spectrum.

It's simple. Who do you want to be - the Landlord or the Deli-man. The landlord owns lots of store fronts and walks around collecting monthly rent from his people. Regardless of whether they sold anything or not.

Do you think - how many $4.95 sandwiches do I need to hustle to make the rent. Or do you think - hey, I'll earn on the store whether it sells any sandwiches or not.

Here's a suggestion. Become a servant to an industry. The network marketing industry, for example.

Because

Leads and training are the picks and shovels any successful marketer / gold miner must have.

And who am I

I am Peter Pocklington
I am a Good News Merchant
I am a Network Marketing Mentor

Change Your Transaction Value

Change your transaction value and you change your income - immediately!

This seems so simple, so obvious, it hit me like the proverbial ton-of-bricks when I first realized I was missing it.

The formula to make more money breaks down to

1. Increase the number of clients you have
2. Boost the average sale (its size) of each client
3. Increase the number of times people reorder.


Who sets the pricing in your business? YOU DO!
Who decides on the packaging in your business? YOU DO!
Who decides on what to EXPECT? YOU DO!

By telling yourself that your customer can't afford more you are moving down a path of scarcity. What you ask for you always get to keep. SO if you ask for larger money and sell a bigger ticket item you make bigger dollars. And here's the great part, it's usually for the same amount or less effort.

And who am I to say that?

I am Peter Pocklington

Six Concepts To Get You Into Wealth Mode

This is a textual version of components from the September 28 Mindset Monday broadcast. The full show is archived for your listening pleasure at http://www.blogtalkradio.com/PeterPocklington

ATTITUDE OF GRATITUDE

Thank You to Joe Schroeder, the two-bit door-to-door salesman who turned a handful of people on his Rolodex into $243,091 in monthly sales and a community of thousands.

We in the Million Mind March gain continuously from masterminding continuously with Joe. Yet he somehow remains dedicated to the creed, to the Warriors prayer to himself, and to breathing more life into others so that they become bigger than they had imagined themselves to be.

Even if you can't make it over to our weekly Monday public call at 9:27 US EST by dialing 641-594-7000 and entering PIN 600088#

you can experience him any time just by calling our 24 hour recorded message at 1-800-772-9781 and pressing extension 6.

Thank You to Diane Hochman, the marketing matriarch of the Million Mind March, who is teaching marketing wisdom every Tuesday - giving course corrections along the way that prevent the crash-and-burn that is the result of so many "get rich quick" programs out there.

These calls are also free every Tuesday at 9:00 PM by calling 414-944-0004 PIN 9774024.You should give these a listen sometimes, just let Diane know I sent you.

Thank You to Kristen Darkenwald for her social media rescue program, which can be accessed freely at www.socialmediarescue.com. Again, just let Kristen know I sent you.

Thank You to my own mentors, colleagues and students who are giving so much of themselves to me and to others.

True livers of the philosophy"My prosperity prospers ten thousand people and their prosperity comes back to me".

SIX CONCEPTS TO GET YOU INTO WEALTH MODE

For today's program I want to share with you six concepts that, when they sink in, can serve to transform your business and thereby your life.



  • Concept #1: Change your transaction value and overnight, instantly, you change your income. Instantly!

  • Concept #2: Become set up to receive BIG money.

  • Concept #3: Earn on everyone, not just your enrollee.

  • Concept #4: Pay yourself daily and/or weekly.

  • Concept #5: Always sell something that creates multiple sales for you, automatically.

  • Concept #6: Time Extension = Equity.


Just by taking a long, hard look at what you are doing in your business through the filter of these concepts, your mind will go to work generating ideas that will keep you up at night - with excitement.

Breaking them down, one by one:

Change your transaction value

This seems so simple, so obvious, it hit me like the proverbial ton-of-bricks when I first realized I was missing it.

The formula to make more money breaks down to

1. Increase the number of clients you have
2. Boost the average sale (its size) of each client
3. Increase the number of times people reorder.

Who sets the pricing in your business? YOU DO!
Who decides on the packaging in your business? YOU DO!
Who decides on what to EXPECT? YOU DO!

By telling yourself that your customer can't afford more you are moving down a path of scarcity. What you ask for you always get to keep. SO if you ask for larger money and sell a bigger ticket item you make bigger dollars. ANd here's the great part, it's usually for the same amount or less effort.

Become set up to receive BIG money.

In the 1912 classic "The Master Key" Charles Hannel wrote "one cannot be, have or acquire in possessions that which he was not first aware of being".

What that translates into is - change your self-image to change the value you represent and this will change how much people pay you.

Beware of the classic low-minded thought process that "everything is too expensive" and "I won't buy-in beyond the minimal amount".

You must BE and THINK like a full-time entrepreneur - even when the hours you are investing are limited.

Think in terms of optimization - be highly leveraged to make as much as possible with the least amount of effort in as little time as possible using as much leverage by and from people as humanly possible.

Earn on everyone.

Remember, Gold Diggers will always buy picks and shovels.

In the gold rush, some hit big seams, most didn't. But the people who sold the picks and shovels didn't care who was on which end of the spectrum.

It's simple. Who do you want to be - the Landlord or the Deli-man. The landlord owns lots of store fronts and walks around collecting monthly rent from his people. Regardless of whether they sold anything or not.

Do you think - how many $4.95 sandwiches do I need to hustle to make the rent. Or do you think - hey, I'll earn on the store whether it sells any sandwiches or not.

Here's a suggestion. Become a servant to an industry. THe network marketing industry, for example. Because leads and training are the picks and shovels any successful marketer / gold miner must have.

Pay yourself daily and/or weekly.

Are you in control of your income?

Or are you waiting for someone else to create sales pieces for you? Are you waiting for other people to recruit others? Are you in a deadly waiting game?

Be honest with yourself.

Why is this? Probably because you are working with too few a number. You cannot "love" people into action. You can control your process. How many ads you place. HOw many postcards you mail.

You control your income when you control your exposure.

The Big Dogs are where they are because they REFUSED to wait for OTHER people.

Always sell something that creates multiple sales for you, automatically.

The concept here is that Sale #1 must breed Sale #2 and Sale#3.

Again, look at the Big Dogs!

How was Elvis worth more after he died than he was when he was alive?

Or when you go to a concert, say by Pink Floyd, Springsteen or Kid Rock. Did you only buy the ticket, or did you buy the T-shirt - which you wear proudly and give free advertising to the artist you love. Did you sign up for the fan-based website, to get advanced notice on future concerts, future events?

The rich get richer because they earn on extended merchandise that reflects what the original thing you bought was.

Look for ways to earn multiple times, in multiple ways, on multiple products, from the same people.

Finally,

Time Extension = Equity.

This is based on the truth that

"The longer a person holds or consumes a portion of whatever you sell, the more likely they are to add their own imagination to ownership and the more likely they are to come back and buy to extend the relationship"

Why do book stores let you sit and read the book for free?

Why were all hit records first 'free' on the radio?

Why did record companies come up with 'Greatest Hits' compilations that always added just one more previously unreleased track to 'complete your collection'?

Why are you being offered to 'inspect' other samples monthly - no purchase necessary?

CONTINUITY = EQUITY!


Implementation of any one of these concepts we have spoken of today will change your income. The more you become the more you will become.

Once again I invite you to join with us tonight and every Monday - at 9:27 US EST by dialing 641-594-7000 and entering PIN 600088#

Experience the journey, the journey of the mind being translated into action. A mind once expanded can never return to its original form.

I am a Good News Merchant
I am a purveyor of prosperity, and
I am my own personal guarantee.

What were you thinking? What WERE you thinking? What were YOU thinking?

YES, YES, YES, YES, YES

Document Your Thoughts

Let me repeat

Document YOUR Thoughts

Think about it

Having thoughts and not documenting them

is like sewing seeds and not knowing

where to harvest.


A life worth living is a life worth documenting.

Where would we be

if Edison had not documented his thoughts on electric light

if Shakespeare had not documented his thoughts on so many events

if Salvador Dali had not documented his thoughts on canvas

if Sarah McLaughlin had not documented her thoughts and put them to music.

if the Apostles had not documented their thoughts on the teachings of Jesus.

Thoughts matter because thoughts turn in to matter.

Ideas are the working capital of the entrepreneur.

Inside you is YOUR thought

The one you were born for

Capture it

Then give it freedom

Let it lead you to its friends

Let it give you back what you gave it

LIFE!


You are SO WORTH IT.

What Inspired Elvis?

YES YES YES YES YES

Hey there,

Elvis was larger than life

I repeat

Elvis was larger than life

and in his Graceland study, by his desk he kept the following words visible

It is not the critic who counts;
not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles,
or where the doer of deeds could have done them better.

The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena,
whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood,
who strives valiantly;

who errs and comes short again and again;
because there is not effort without error and shortcomings;

but who does actually strive to do the deed;
who knows the great enthusiasm,
the great devotion,
who spends himself in a worthy cause,
who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement and
who at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly.

So that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.


These words from Teddy Roosevelt inspired Elvis

These words inspire me as I step into my arena and face my challenges

May they inspire you as you reach out in your greatness

To claim your prize

In your arena

YOU ARE SO WORTH IT!

Mindset Monday - The Business Of Network Marketing

This is a textual version of components from the September 21 Mindset Monday broadcast. The full show is archived for your listening pleasure at http://www.blogtalkradio.com/PeterPocklington

ATTITUDE OF GRATITUDE

Thank You to Diane Hochman, the marketing matriarch of the Million Mind March, for her continuing crusade to "Keep It Real" and the advice she continues to provide freely on her weekly broadcasts.

You should give these a listen sometimes, just let Diane know I sent you. They are on Tuesdays at 9:00 PM EST. Call 414-944-0004 PIN 9774024#

Thank You to Kristen Darkenwald for cutting through the social media hype with her social media rescue program, which she has made freely available at http://www.socialmediarescue.com. Again, just let Kristen know I sent you.

Thank You to Andre Vatke, to Molly Stevens and the rest of the folks at the Leaders Club, who are all so dedicated to countering the hype and instead are focusing on developing the individual and the skills necessary for success in the Network Marketing Industry.

Thank You to my personal advisor and friend Shana Prince, and

Thank You to the members of the Million Mind March and Mentoring For Free networks who are putting people first in recognition of the fact that Network Marketing is, first and foremost, a People and Leadership Development industry.

THE BUSINESS OF NETWORK MARKETING

For today's program, since it is a Mindset Monday segment, I would like to talk to what I perceive as some of the misconceptions that people have who are either considering a career in the industry or who have just gotten into it.

Now why do people get into the industry.

Perhaps they feel trapped in their current financial or job situation.

Perhaps they just want a way to establish long-term financial security for themselves and their family.

Whatever their reason, the most common misconception that we are coming across is that success will be instant. That just by connecting with volumes of people on the internet, or by getting thousands of Twitter followers that somehow, as if by magic, these will instantly become long-term business partners who love whatever product or service you are offering - so much that they will be repeat buyers, forever. So you can, with no effort or commitment on your part, sail off into the sunset and live happily ever after - without a financial care in the world.

Let me just ask you - does this pass the "smell test". In the bottom of your gut, in your heart of hearts, aren't you at least suspicious?

Remember, if money grew on trees it would have the value of leaves. And come fall I can't even give mine away.

So let me take away the hype, strip back some of the veneer and be really clear.

You need to approach any network marketing opportunity clear in the understanding that you are buying a business! It will take time to grow. You will need to develop skills you don't necessarily have from the get go. You will need to show up for work on a regular basis, or you won't get paid. There is no "free lunch" and if you have a "something for nothing" mindset you will be taken for a ride.

My heart bleeds for people who become fodder for the unscrupulous.

Now, before anyone takes this as being a shot at the Network Marketing Industry, let me make this also quite clear - I love this industry.

It has provided a vehicle for so many with the right attitude to distribute great products and provide service and be compensated not for the title they hold - which is the model of regular employment - but for the results their business produces.

Which is another mindset threshold that people entering the industry often have to cross. You will not be paid just for showing up. You will be paid on results. This is why the development of appropriate skills is so critical.

Let me ask again, in anything you have done in your life have you ever walked in and been able to do everything needed, perfectly, from the day you started? Of course not! It takes most of us a year or two to learn to walk safely.

When I hear "this business doesn't work" I cringe. The statistics alone belie this statement.

In 2006, as estimated by the Direct Sales Association, the industry produced $30 billion is sales in the US alone. $100 billion world-wide. Though this is just a fraction of all retail it certainly is not an indication of a business model that won't work.

So what is required for success?

Let's look at some more statistics:

  • 60% of the sales happen directly - person to person

  • 75% of those actively involved in the business are at least 35 years of age and are married

  • 90% work the business part-time (defined as 30 hours or less)



What do these figures say to me?

One - that success is based on relationships. Relationships that last are built on integrity and a good end-product. Not on taking advantage of people for a 'quick-buck'.

Two - that life experience and relationship experience is a desirable attribute.

Three - that the business is DESIGNED to be worked part-time and provide complementary income - rather than replacement income.

As a business model Network Marketing compares favorably to other income producing activities, such as:

Semi-skilled employment where you are paid for your time but have limited options for long-term success

A professional career where you can earn good money - lawyers, doctors etc. - but where you have limited control over your long-term financial prospects. You can't work more hours and make more money.

Having and Executive position in a company. OK, but how limited are these positions? Is not a history of exceptional performance required? How long is the life-span of a senior executive?

Starting your own business from scratch. What does that really take in terms of a time and money investment? What revenues will it take before you make a profit in excess of overheads? How long will it take to break-even?

Buying into a franchise. This at least reduces the start-up risk of the business by buying into a profitable model, in return for reducing YOUR profitability margins.

Freelancing. This is most similar to Network Marketing in that most people are working from home, setting their own hours and selling special skills. However, the question becomes, what do you do when you can't work? YOU, and you alone, ARE THE BUSINESS.

SO:

when you treat your network marketing business with the respect it deserves

when you know that although you set your own hours you still have to show up

when you know that you need a market for your product or service and YOU will need buyers

when you know you will need, in order to achieve a dependable residual income, to be able to find, recruit and train an additional work-force - which will be, by the way, an army of volunteers,

when you know that you will have to duplicate your efforts and intentions into the hearts and minds of others

when you know YOU are in control of your message AND your cash flow


THEN

you will have the mindset to acquire the skills and develop a business that rewards people for their labors in a way few others do

with an income that doesn't stop on the days when you cannot work.


Obtain the skills, apply them, teach them, and teach others to do the same.

That may not sound as sexy as the get rich quick messages that are out there. But my job today was to give you my perspective

Business Growth Friday - Comparing Funding Strategies

This is a textual version of components from the September 18 Business Growth Friday broadcast. The full show is archived for your listening pleasure at http://www.blogtalkradio.com/PeterPocklington

ATTITUDE OF GRATITUDE

Thank You to Richard Shapiro, Master Broker and Expert Coach, whose patience and generosity provided the learning envornment for so many of us.

Thank You to Kendall Summerhawk, the other half of the Shapiro-Summerhawk team, for her marketing wisdom and her patient generosity.

Thank You to Paul Pintarch, for agreeing to share his wisdom and experience on an upcoming Business Growth Friday broadcast.

COMPARING FUNDING STRATEGIES?

In our Business Growth Friday segments we have been considering two of the critical components for accelerating your business' growth - cash flow and information flow.

This week I came across a summary of a 2004 Wall Street Journal article that indicated that 62% of small business owners had cited managing cash flow as a top priority for them in order to take advantage of growth opportunities.

Of these 35% said that getting their customers to pay is their main concern, with a detailed breakdown of their concerns being:


  • 35% - Accounts Receivable

  • 6% - Meeting Payroll

  • 11% - Tracking cashflow

  • 22% - Having cash available to win new business

  • 28% - Paying their bills on time.



As a result of these concerns, when asked what they would do


  • 30% responded that they would delay purchases

  • 24% were looking to get a line of credit

  • 18% were looking to use their own credit card

  • 10% were looking for short-term loans, and

  • 6% were looking to lease instead of buy new equipment.



In short, growth delaying, risk increasing solutions.

I grant you that these numbers may be somewhat dated. While I do not have available to me the updates for 2008 - I would have to hypothesise that in today's risk-averse, credit crunch environment the situation has probbably gotten worse rather than better.

And this for small business - the life blood of our economy!

So for today's segment I thought I would consider and compare various funding strategies according to criteria that we have found pertinent to the business owner considering his financing options.

Consider first the traditional sources of funds - the places where businesses in need of cash most commonly turn.

Loans - The most commonly considered source of business capital is a bank loan.

The problem here is that most banks want to see at least two years of profitable tax returns before lending business money. Since it usually takes two to five years to see a profit this effectively shuts the door on new businesses for at least two years and more usually four.

By strange co-incidence this is also the time when businesses see their greatest growth.

Venture Capital - the next most common approach that is taken traditionally is to look for venture capital.

This essentially means selling a piece of your business in exchange for working capital - either through taking on a "silent" partner, taking on an active partner through any of the investor networks - through to going public and raising capital by selling stock.

So, in addition to the incurring of significant legal expenses - depending on the complexity - you are beginning to give up a piece of control of your business. The more successful you are the longer the interest someone will have in retaining their piece of control.

Also you will be incurring on-going expenses for external auditing and additional reporting requirements. All this takes time to acquire and get set up.

Grants and Gifts - our third source.

There are programs out there and I encourage business owners to use them where possible. Googling SBIR (Small Business Innovation Research) and STTR (Small Business Technology Transfer), for example, will take you to information on just a couple of the Federal R&D programs designed to increase private sector commercialization of technology.

However, you should be aware that the money can be difficult to get. THe grant proposals have to adhere to strict guidelines and it will take time, usually 6 to 12 months, for the funds to be released.

There are grants available from Private and Public Corporations. These require research and it might be worth your while to acquire the services of a business that specialises in this area to understand the situation more fully.

Of course, a gift is a gift and should be accepted gratefully where no strings are attached.

Asset-based lending.

Our final class of traditional lending is that of asset-based lending,most commonly lending against:


  • Land and Buildings - a percentage of the appraised value of the property (so that will have been going down recently)

  • Inventory or Finished Goods - typically bringing up to 50% of the wholesale value

  • Raw Materials - possibly bringing in ten cents of the dollar, and

  • Furniture, Fixtures and Equipment - which realistically has little value unless you have very large pieces of equipment that are owned free-and-clear.



That brings us to our friends from prior programs - available from the archives at www.blogtalkradio.com/PeterPocklington - The Alternative Financing Solutions

The most common of these being Factoring (a.k.a. Accounts Receivable Financing) and Purchase Order Funding.

The advantages of these being:

  • they are debt-free - they are not a loan

  • they grow as your business grows - so are virtually unlimited in scope, and

  • they are based on the credit-worthiness of the businesses you are doing business with.



So they are particularly useful for young, growing businesses - both from the availability of cash they provide as well as the security of knowing you are doing business with creditworthy businesses.

So, in conclusion, by considering each of the strategies mentioned



  • Equipment Leasing

  • Going Public

  • Obtaining Venture Capital

  • Obtaining Bank Loans

  • Taking on Private Investors

  • Participating in a Government Program

  • Alternative Financing via Factoring or Purchase Order Funding




and looking at them in regard to features such as



  • Simplicity of the Application Process

  • Time taken to fund

  • Approval based on your creditworthiness

  • Funding tied to sales

  • Having to give up equity

  • Having to give up control

  • Whether the amount available to you is limited by the value of your Fixed Assets

  • What the lender's requirement is of your profitability

  • What type of on-going monitoring of your operations you can expect, and

  • What impact it will have on your business overheads (will they increase or will they decrease?)


you will obtain a better picture and make your well-informed decision for your business' circumstances.

Spirituality Sunday - Anam Cara - Soul Friend

This is a textual version of components from the September 13 Spirituality Sunday broadcast. The full show is archived for your listening pleasure at http://www.blogtalkradio.com/PeterPocklington

ATTITUDE OF GRATITUDE

Thank You for the life of Mary Travers - who left us this week. I asked Puff The Magic Dragon "Where Have All The Flowers Gone". The answer is "Blowin' In The Wind" he replied.

As Mary took on the Spirit of other troubadors whose music contributed to her social consciousness, her Spirit will live on in the candles she and her brothers-in-arms, Peter and Paul, lit in the hearts of others.

Thank You to the country of Ireland, the country of Scotland and the county of Yorkshire. Their beautiful ruggedness has helped create a people, a culture of wisdom that transcends time. Though it is a stretch sometimes to call the bagpipes "sweet soul music" in its best essence there is no doubt in my mind that it is the music of the soul.

Thank you to all the wonderful staff on NPR's "Speaking of Faith"

And Thank You to the late John O'Donahue by whom I was so moved this morning.By the thoughts that he triggered in my head that were so strong I felt I had to share them with you today.

It would not wait a week. It was imperative. HERE! NOW!

ANAM CARA - SOUL FRIEND

While I will be downloading the podcast from Speaking Of Faith - as a message to listen to over and over - let me just share some of his wisdom.

You should always keep something beautiful in your mind

Isn't that the truth. When the Moody Blues sang "it is all around if we could but perceive" on "In Search of the Lost Chord" they encouraged us to search for a higher perception, an awareness of beauty.

When my mother taught me the power of "making memories" she was giving me the gift of actively looking for beauty and storing it in my mind for future reference. Beauty is truly all around us, when we open our minds to perceive it. Let's just take John's next step. Capture it in our minds. For spiritual nourishment when we need sustenance.

The gifts we have been given are not ours alone. The were meant to be shared with the community.

As it is written "to whom much is given, from him (her) much is expected".

We come into the physical world naked and alone and when we leave it, it is also a journey we take alone.

With that truth in mind, is not everything that we are and have in some way, shape or form, a gift. Somebody somewhere, or something, made whatever you have available to you.

Who is your community? Your family? Your friends? Your Church? Your Work Colleagues? Your twitter following? Your Facebook friends? It is for you to decide. But always remember, it is in giving that we truly receive.

Your identity is not the same as your biography

So many CVs, so many resumes, so little time!

Do we take the time any more to learn more about WHO people are? Not just ask ourselves the question "what can he (or she) do for me?"

Through all the failures I have had, in all the places where my resume disqualifies me from being an instant success - to be used by someone else as they see fit - I know inside of me there is a me that is a distilled essence. I know that is also true for you.

When I stand in front of Saint Peter and he looks into the Book Of Life for the life of Peter Pocklington, I trust he will know more than the results, more than just the CV, more than just the resume. I hope he will see the ME and make his judgment with wisdom and compassion.

Are you afraid of your limitations, or are you afraid of the infinite within you?

In his book "Think And Grow Rich", Napoleon Hill outlines the six basic fears. We all have them. God knows we all have them. Literally. GOD KNOWS!

Yet another basic truth is that God made us. And the way I look at it "GOD DIDN'T MAKE NO DUDS"!

So ask yourself - instead of telling yourself what you can't do, what if I can do? On the Million Mind March we have a mantra - "you don't have to get it right, you just have to get it going". The physical world teaches us that a body in motion stays in motion until acted upon by an equal and opposite force. So what if the force of God is inside us? Because I believe it is. THE infinite is within us. Yes, John, I am afraid. But I do thank God for the 23rd psalm.

Create a space where your children can unfold. Safely.

Now there's a corker! In the name of safety are we imprisoning our children?

One of the greatest blessings I have been granted in my life has been watching my grand-daughter evolve. Without my own fears of "am I doing the right thing for my child?".

To quote my mother again - she once shared with me a concept - that we come into the world with infinite wisdom, infinite intelligence - and slowly lose it as we become molded by our physical constraints, our environmental constraints, our emotional constraints.

I encourage us all to watch children at play when they structure their own environment. I never cease to be amazed by their problem solving skills, their capacity to forgive, their natural ability. They learn to communicate in a completely foreign language is less than two years. Try that Mr. PhD in Mathematics. Try that Mr Certified Systems Engineer.

Watch a baby. Defenseless little creature. No so-called language skills. Yet it can dominate the space it occupies - DOMINATE IT!

Do you know when it is hungry? Who told you?

Do you know when it is tired? Who told you?

Do you know when it is pleased with you? Who told you?

Do you know when it is displeased with you? Who told you?

When was the last time you had a great conversation, in which you heard yourself say things you never knew you knew?

In a round-about way we have come full circle to the last of the thought-provoking ideas John O'Donahue lead me to today.

Did that thought hit me like the proverbial "ton of bricks"?

In a 140 character world, in an email world we can connect with so many. Yet with how many do we converse?

What does it take to have the conversations that bring out things from inside of you that you never knew you knew?

If, as it is said, the art of conversation is dead - may I pray that there will be a resurrection?

This is definitely one of the gauntlets that John O'Donahue threw at my feet. Am I able to meet his challenge? Can I be the kind of person who helps people say things they never knew they knew? Who do I know who is that kind of person?

Is this a question in search of an answer? Or is it an answer in search of a question?

Either way, I know I was given a gift today. That by capturing the wisdom of John O'Donahue before he departed this existence at the early age of fifty-two, Speaking Of Faith was able to bless my life this morning.

I shared this gift with you because

I am Peter Pocklington
