abundance: Let us do something exceptional today! - 11/18/19 06:53 AM
Let us do something exceptional today!How might the world improve over time if more people were to make these 6 words the first words spoken each day? This has nothing to do with achieving goals or winning whatever game we’re playing.
It’s all about being the best version of yourself and pledging to do whatever you can do to make this day count as being another day better than the one before.
You might be thinking something along the lines of:
“This is not realistic! After all, EVERYONE has a bad day once in a while.”
To which I’ll posit that … (12 comments)

abundance: With a little help - 05/17/19 07:53 AM
When we’re feeling down-trodden and out of sorts, we often find rejuvenating energy from the most unexpected sources. Of course we’re surprised because we are not expecting help. We are proud and strong and even “invincible” . . . so we weather the storm and do our best to keep our chins up and muddle through.
We all have these “seasons” in our lives. We don’t want to “trouble” anyone else with our problems. After all, we got ourselves into this mess, so it’s up to us to get ourselves out of it, right?
This is where “random acts of kindness” … (2 comments)

abundance: There’s plenty! - 12/24/17 07:39 AM
Of course! Pull up a chair! Christmas day isn’t full of family enjoying good company and bountiful food and beverage for everyone.
I remember this from my college days and my days in the Army.
Invariably, I would know of a few students/soldiers who didn’t have a “Home” to go to during the Holidays . . . or have a home but were not able to travel.
These folks would observe in solitude as everyone around them buzzed along with excitement as they prepared for the big day.
I’ve been one of those people a few times, and it never felt … (1 comments)

abundance: 2 Great Friday messages - 10/20/17 06:06 AM
TGIF! I had the good fortune of receiving 2 messages filled with gratitude and abundance.
First – Posted by my friend Ben Jordan (Who may have posted from one of his friends)
“Showing support for one another, I’m looking for SIX of my friends to post this message (not share) to show you are always there if someone needs to talk. I think I know who will. #Buddycheck”
Second – The final line in Seth Godin’s post today
“If you’re not drowning, you’re a lifeguard.”
We’re all in this together, eh?
Hope you have a great weekend!

abundance: Monday Morning Coffee – Integrity, Strength, Apology, and Forgiveness - 11/04/13 12:40 AM
“the fate of all time depends upon a single moment.” This past weekend, our family had the extraordinary experience of attending Niece Rachel’s Bat Mitzvah in the ever-so-beautiful setting of Park city, Utah.
Having attended several Bar Mitzvah and Bat Mitzvah through the years – Cousins, Nieces, and Nephews – I was excited because I ALWAYS find amazing personal fulfillment in the ritual and outpouring of love rendered by all in attendance as these young boys and girls transition into the adult world.
Perhaps this sounds “selfish” (and yes – It’s a “guilty Pleasure” of mine), but I’ll atone for my … (1 comments)

abundance: Don’t Sell me! SERVE Me! - 09/05/13 05:51 AM
Quit telling me what I want! Odds are good that if I’m in your field of vision, I’m already a prospect.
Your job is NOT to tell me what I “SHOULD” be buying from you.
Your job IS to spend some time with me and LEARN what I WANT and NEED to buy.
Get to know me.
Learn a bit about my family, my hobbies, my peeves, and what excites me.
Discover what’s important (what MATTERS) to me and help me find THAT.
How can you make my life easier?
Approach me in service.
Meet me where I am instead of requiring me … (2 comments)

abundance: A veritable GOLDMINE – FREE! #in - 04/28/12 07:56 AM
  Generosity abounds . . . Read to the bottom for some great FREE resources – DO IT TODAY 4/28 because one of these offers expires at the end of the day.
One very COOL thing the internet has done for us all is to give VERY generous (and smart/wise) people a platform to share some REALLY good stuff without charging.
I make every effort to write each blog post such that it makes IMPACT on the reader because I KNOW how overwhelming it all can be.
I feel this great burden of responsibility that if anyone is generous enough with … (3 comments)

abundance: YOU ARE HERE #in - 02/26/11 03:07 AM
Posted on February 26, 2011 by Barry Owen
My friend and Open Space Technology colleague Alan Stewart posted the "diagram" (below) along with the comment: "The ‘You are here' diagram is a wonderful tool for getting things into perspective."
This is a diagram I might print on a business card and keep @ 10 of them in my wallet for those special occasions when I encounter a person whose outlook on life is that HIS way is the ONLY way . . . or that SHE is SO important that the whole world will definitely come unglued without her magnificent presence. 
Proper perspective … (1 comments)
