1. Question yourself, family, friends, associates (and ‘lamestream media/politicos’). Let Go and Let God(dess). Take ‘time outs.’
2. Discover your deeper nature. Look Within. As Within, so Without.
3. Recognize and value your unique gift(s), and apply it/them.
4. Respond to opportunity. The chinese word for crisis is ‘opportunity.’ Be in the right time at the right place with the right people.
5. Excel at what you do. BJ PENN says, ‘Be the best in the World at what you do.’ Better yet, be the only one who can (and does) do what you do. Be indispensable and impeccable. Always keep your word. Your word is your bond. Say what you mean, mean what you say. And if you say you’re going to do (or not do) something; do it (or don’t).
Seth Godin calls this being a Linchpin. Always connect. And follow through.
Don’t be afraid to commit. Iff you can’t and/or won’t (or don’t want to) say ‘no.’
Don’t play games with people’s feelings and/or lead them on (to a false premise/conclusion).
6. Wake up your intuition. What are you sure about? Follow your Dreams.
7. Authenticity. Always keep it real. Life is not a dress rehearsal.
8. Enough is enough. We live in a world of abundance; just plug into the source and collect what’s yours. Then share it. Pay it forward. We have (more than) enough.
9. Be guided by (and aspire to) greatness. Don’t settle for less than what you deserve. Rise above and transcend the mediocre. Have a clear mission/vision for what you want to achieve and follow it religiously.
10. Fuel the fire, but don’t burn the candle at both ends. Know when you’ve had enough and get rest and relaxation. Keep your energetic body maintained.
11. Experience the wealth of giving and the joy of service to others. You only get what you put out. What goes around comes around. You can’t get something for nothing. Freedom’s not free.
12. Embrace the return of the Goddess (and God). Not just the old time religion; but the revival of ancient wisdom traditions and mystery ever reborn like the Phoenix… in us..
(13. And don’t take anyone/anything for granted and/or on face value/superficial impression(s). Carpe Diem.
Sometimes it seems like all we hear these days is talk of the tough economy. I actually conducted a little sociological experiment this weekend, and counted up how many times I heard people refer to the economy, and therefore current times in general, in a negative way. I got 43 hits, even though I stayed home quite a bit.
There is, of course, some objective measurable truth to all of this depressing talk. If you own a house, it’s probably worth considerably less than it was five years ago. If you own a business, you may be making less money than you were, and you may have even been faced with the difficult decision of laying off some of your employees. If you’re an investor in the stock market, you may have seen your portfolio go down in value.
But not everybody these days is having a terrible time. I’ve…
