Takin’ the party to the top…

I am always walking the tight-rope between my inherent, too-sunny-for-some optimism and the sometimes brutal realism I create for myself as I go along. Good thing this year’s study and practice is all about “Leadership.” I have discovered fairly recently I shine as a Manager…not so much as a Leader… I have all the markers to be a good one, and by the way, what exactly does a Leadership role look like for me?

I’ve asked myself lately, “Self, why are you shy to share your stuff now?” I certainly wasn’t in the past, I was always “out there” with my words…a pioneer of the grassroots network online, an innovator in virtual community technology and etiquette…you are happiest out here on the leading edge of thought and vision and all it provokes…what’s changed?

The answer was not long in coming back and it was a revelation: Remember, 10 or 12 years ago, most of your world was not online yet…the internet was a foreign animal to most and a wonderful new-world escape from the usual and mundane. All those you know and love are now showing up, technology has now caught up to your dream – thanks to Facebook, they’re finally here!

Gulp…no wonder, and dammit, I’m still letting what others think trip me up and hold me back from contributing what I worked so hard for to give!! Some old programming is indeed insidious and persistent. I am back, not giving a rip anymore, the rubber’s meetin’ the road for many and it’s time to share like I’ve never shared before!

This past holiday season I celebrated my 5th year out here in the world of business on my own.

It has taken me about 24 months to accomplish what it took me 24 years to do on the traditional employment path.

Since leaving “Ma Bell” after 24 years of faithful and loyal service, I have looked back only to remember and appreciate all those that I knew and loved and to revel in the glory of just how much I have accomplished in such a short time out of my “corporate nest”.

I am now living the dream I knew how to dream back in 2004. I am enjoying the manifestation of the intentions I launched from my asking for “more and better”. This future – now – looks a little different than I pictured and yet it “feels” better than I could have imagined, more perfect than I could have made it with my mind’s eye. I have confidence and assurance that my future is always brighter than I’m able to paint it – and yet, paint it I must!

It seems I need an entirely new dream for the next 5 to 10 though, the trips ‘round the sun are going to go by no matter what I put my focus to, and I’ve been on this plateau I’m on for too long. In the busy-ness of my early-retired life I had failed to notice I had “arrived”, which equates to a lack of appreciation on my part. I have experienced first-hand that partying on the plateaus too long on the journey upward leads to inertia and left long enough – ultimately to attrition.

The intentions I launched as I was heading out the door of corporate employment in December of 2004 were realized some months ago. My intention for now – 5 years from back then – was to enjoy a similar home environment, income and security as I was accustomed to within my corporate experience – without the bosses, daunting tasks and family-time cramping schedule. I wanted more fun and freedom, time to create and reflect, more choices – work or play? Both? OK. I wanted more possibilities…passive, residual income. I wanted to be an excellent Network Marketer. It became a drive and my chosen profession years before I left my place of employment.

Today my MXI Corp US$ cheques arrive every two weeks, like clockwork, on the same day they had from Bell Canada since the 1980’s. I have created a valuable business asset the bank and our government really, really like and encourage me to grow and nurture. I have more friends, guides, perks and security than I could have imagined for myself 5 years ago – even the corporately sponsored car is on its way.

This household has been on the government program few yet understand the power of for almost 15 years now.

This week I will celebrate my 3rd anniversary as an MXI Corporation Executive Associate, trying to imagine 24 years with this corporate entity. I am at the company’s Silver level, about to go to Gold on my way to the current top level “Ambassador”. I am already an “MXI Ambassador” in my mind and actions. Capturing the honorable MXI Ambassador flag is just a matter of a little compressed time, a handful of life-loving people, a few more favourable circumstances oh, and bullet proof belief in my vision and the absolute power at my command.

This is not my first affiliation, having only minute success with many other vehicles before this, to have “failed forward” this far is to call myself a professional and render myself very useful to many that are now asking for more and better for themselves – asking louder and with a little more urgency than ever before.

I have begun the climb up the corporate ladder once again, this time, I like what I see at the top, I actually want to go there!

As my long-time mentor Jim Rohn R.I.P. used to say,

The problem isn’t that there’s not enough room at the top,
the problem is getting through the crowd at the bottom.

This time there’s a few of my friends gathered at the top waiting for us to arrive and the crowd at the bottom is mobilizing upward…the next stretch is going to be an absolute blast, we’ll continue the party on the way up!

This is my goal for this year:
(Hand doodled while reflecting on my plan.)

I will help 6 families create an extra $50,000 this year.

As a result I will get what I want and they will all get more than they ever dared to dream of before!
This is the invitation and the promise.

This is the year where I get to show a bunch of good people a great time with a whole new game plan! We pretty much know that an extra $500 to $1500 a month will prevent most from going into bankruptcy and allows them to “get caught up” on some things.

I want the same “thriving” I enjoy, for those I know and love, and I’m fairly certain they are asking for the same. There is a vast difference between thriving and surviving, one leads to growth and abundance, the other to attrition and lack of choices, thriving is way more fun and is simply a decision “to be and do” it.

There is both great misunderstanding and great curiosity about “what we networkers do”. I have not accomplished what I have alone – everyone is doing a little bit to create a lot for All involved. I have never retailed a product in this particular opportunity – a salesperson I claim not to be, and for the first time, I have access to a solid and capable team backing me, holding their vision of greatness for me, and eagerly waiting to work for and with whoever wants to come out to play with us.

My company alone in one year is sharing out in excess of $40 Million of their profits as referral commissions to “their loyal consumers” representing ½ of all they take in, funds that otherwise would have gone to the big guys like Walmart. At the time of this writing there’s a small handful of people sharing in this one profit pot – some are taking portions in the Millions, we can still count them and fit them in 1 small room.

I call it “winning the lottery slowly”, the pot’s there for all and every ticket’s a winner, it is the current day’s low to no risk, “sure thing”!

I am certain by my observing and listening to others that many “think” they know what Network Marketing is all about, they “think” they know what they would have to do in “something like that”.

I ask them what it is they think they have to do? Ya’ know they really aren’t sure after thinking about it. Have they asked for explanation or understanding of “what it takes”? “Well no, not really.” Do you want to understand? Hmmm…great question…

I ask them to look around and see if they can identify someone in their life that is having success with this life-saving business model, let alone doing it well and truly serving others with real results. As a profession it is like anything else, a small percentage of all of those “running around doing it” are doing what’s supposed to be done – and how.

Network Marketing is different more than difficult, it is unlike any other business model on the planet, it is highly respected and so are the leaders and masters within it, they make great change using it as a vehicle for leverage to create abundance for the masses. I personally have never done something as serving or more fun.

It is a people business first, it asks that we show up ready for fun and to give of ourselves, be open to new ways of seeing and understanding things, be teachable, coach-able and give ourselves permission to screw up along the way…sounds a lot like life itself eh?

I’ve been committed to this concept of Consumer’s Networking for almost 15 years, I’ve held out for the “Perfect Storm” of desire, leadership, technology and finally “mastery”.

Network Marketing isn’t new – it’s been around since the mid 1950s, and the vehicle I work with is certainly newly evolved and unique within this sector – “The Perfect Combination”. The internet has married this concept of grassroots marketing and has caused much of its positive change, the winds are heavily in our favour at this time…they say this is the year where many more of us will “get it”.

We are fairly certain the old ways of doing things ’round this planet isn’t working for all of us, new options are needed to replace the old paradigms.

It all comes back to identifying what we really want, from the heart, and holding ourselves worthy to declare why we want it…usually it requires opening up to something new and excitingly unfamiliar, something refreshingly different.

What do you really, really want? What is your “NLG” – Next Level of Greatness?

If we could show you a way to get it over the next 12 to 24 months by adding some fun and well-being into your mix, are you open to having a conversation about that?

Will you be one of the 6 to step up this year so that this time next year you can say,

“2010 was the year EVERYTHING changed for the better.”

Chocolate Peeps & Candlestick Pips…

“The one who follows the crowd, will usually get no further than the crowd. The one who walks alone is likely to discover places no one has ever been before.

Creativity in living is not without its attendant difficulties, for peculiarity breeds contempt. And the unfortunate thing about being ahead of your time is that when people finally realize you were right, they’ll say it was obvious all along.

You have two choices in life: you can dissolve into the mainstream, or you can be distinct. To be distinct, you must be different. To be different you must strive to be what no one else but you can be…”

— Taken From “Creative Problem Solving

This long overdue posting serves as my “What I Did This Summer Report.” Summer? We had summer in there? I had no idea the whirlwind I would experience going into it, and as usual, with clear intentions around me, I am amazed looking back at the previous 4 months at how time gets all outta’ whack when I am in the zone of following my bliss and single focused to an ultimate end. And we know that every ending is just a new beginning…

It’s been an unusual and turbulent year for just about every Being on this precarious planet and although I am blessed to be having a different ride than most, the last few months was not without its attendant challenges. Seems once summer hit, I had a strong calling to go find some more bliss for myself. I didn’t quite know what that looked like or what it would take and I had to brake through some inertia and excuses I had running to recreate that wonderful feeling of momentum again.

I learned while away, that I am in good company in my “not knowing” what the future really holds in store.

After a few trips around North America to be in the company of some of our most masterful business and investor folk, it appeared to me that no one, from the top down, really knows for sure what’s next, although there are some obvious solutions popping up as most likely, it seems that we are creating our restructuring as we go. What is crystal clear is, just about everyone in these circles are over the top excited about where we’re headed, and consequently, so am I!

I set out to find the inspiration for “re-invention” of myself. I wanted to find new solutions and ways of “doing things”, to run with a new crowd, find a different perspective and develop my skills of benevolent influence and persuasion in order to further enhance and develop my roles as leader, entrepreneur, and investor.

Just when you think things are as perfect as perfect gets, something – and usually someone with it – more perfect comes along to add to the mix of fun and abundance!

While I was away I found another Golden Goose for my multi-stream income nest, amazing new friends, eager to learn, to play, to have fun with life, and, some new and different mentors to follow and model.

I heard a statement recently with regards to advancing up the ranks in my main business. I have it now filed as a “Universal Truth” as it applies to life as well:

“The people that brought you to this level or that take you to the next level may or may not be the same people that take you to the top and beyond.”

In my last post I was just going into a formal coaching relationship – that was July, the exercise has been priceless…and not too similar to what I had pictured for the experience.

When I go after what I need, a whole bunch of what I didn’t know I wanted shows up!

Taking a leap of faith for me is like jumping into a cold lake on a hot day. I generally take a while to jump in and get it over with. I am sensitive to the contrast of the immediate environment change; I have to go through some short term discomfort to get to the fun and ease of swimming. Albeit it uncomfortable, the short term suffering is worth the end goal – have fun with my friends…and…

“How we do anything is how we do everything.”

My fellow healthy chocolate Peeps are inspiring and astounding me in their persistence and determination. It’s been almost 3 full years focused on that business and after experiencing the battle of “attrition” together this past year, those of us left standing are they that really understand and see the bigger vision focused on solution.

We learned first hand that attrition happens when the market/the people panics – and it’s only temporary if one takes action and tends to it. We are a force and viable source to be reckoned with and are rallying together to get the word out about the solution we have for saving lives, and mostly…

“We are listening like we’ve never listened before.”

Something else I found out, there is massive opportunity in panic and change!

As my chocolate business grows and thrives, I find myself acclimating to a new environment the last 2 months. It’s been 4 solid years since I was scared straight into the unfamiliar territory of finances and investing. Finally after this much time and much discomfort, absorbing and wading through information and concepts that used to flat out scare or bore me, I heard something at this year’s investment festival calling out to me. It had always been there and I guess now I was ready to notice and embrace it…

I set my alarm every morning and pop out of bed to head to the desk and out onto the FOREX yard for a morning of play. If all goes well and I’m good – I will collect a lot of “pips”. I am fascinated as I watch the constantly changing red and blue “candlesticks” and become familiar with the ripples of movement as trillions of dollars move about the planet in reaction to the collective vibration! Riding the waves of the open Foreign Exchange Market is my newest passion and as I have discovered – one of the quintessential skills one might like to master going into the future. I have taken to it like a duck to water and it is the something I didn’t know I wanted and was right under my nose for quite some time. Confirmation once again that I will hear and see what I’m truly ready to hear and see.

FOREX trading is being touted as the next big skill open to the masses to learn, it has become the perfect fit for my portfolio of income streams. It fits the number one criteria and that is, that it doesn’t mess with my first love – my chocolate business. Instead, what has occurred is that, as I learn the disciplines required to be good at day trading, my other business is benefiting from the experience!

My days now have more structure and I get more done in less time. I am surrounded by masters cheering me on to the finish lines of my goals in all endeavours, and I now have 2 ways to ensure the lifestyle and freedom I prefer! Everyday I hear the personal results of those that know the nature of this thriving market, I am motivated to get good fast. I’m also acutely more aware of how much I can actually accomplish while having fun doing what I must do.

If I have to pick one, my chocolate business gets priority focus, it’s got the satisfaction of helping people in all matters, the leverage of everyone doing a little bit and the passive residual returns over time.

The FOREX yard is almost always open for when I’m ready to step in and out of it, and in it I must be to scoop out the profits of the pips! It represents the pulse of the global collective and adheres to natural laws that I can bank on. It satisfies my need to observe patterns of behaviour while I practice remaining detached from outcome, it hones my patience while I learn the art of following a system and the skill of wisely responding instead of gut-reacting.

So as I consume my healthy chocolate, counsel and plan with my fellow chocolate peeps and play my trading games every day, I am aware of how peculiar my way of earning a living and doing life must appear to those on the outside of it looking in.

I am resigned to master one thing for sure and that’s “rolling with change”, I commit to being flexible and adaptable to new environments no matter how uncomfortable it is to dive into them, because, after what seems a few moments, I’ll be shouting to those still dry, “C’mon in the water’s fine!”

I’m fairly certain by now that chocolate IS here on this planet to fix everything…well almost everything, as we heard this past weekend, and have come to know by our experiences with others over the years,

Chocolate doesn’t fix stupid!!
— Kerry Dean – Brand New MXI Ambassador Distributor & MXI Canada Rockstar

(You had to be there; that one-liner and its delivery brought the house down!)  And, as a side-note, no sooner were the words out of her mouth and a study was released to indicate chocolate may actually make you smarter after all!

No kiddin’ here’s the article:
“Cocoa’s ‘mind-altering’ experience…”

I’ve just returned from my company’s 4th annual general celebration at the Peppermill Resort & Casino in Reno, Nevada. 2000 or so healthy chocolate eaters and sharers poured into the hotel for a weekend of learning, partying and the sharing and celebration of their year’s successes, I heard many inspiring stories and met people that otherwise I would not have the benefit of their valuable wisdom.

This month marks 2 ½ years since I made the decision to run with The Healthy Chocolate business, this is my second celebration and something has definitely “shifted”. It has evolved and continues to evolve into the icon I intuitively felt it would be since the very first time I heard the words “healthy chocolate”.

There’s just something magical about the cocoa bean from Mother Nature! There were folks in the room selling t-shirts with slogans like, “there’s nothing wrong with me that chocolate can’t fix.” We listened to new songs and poems were recited, there was a new 150 page cook-book, jewelry, buttons and even Fifth Avenue clutch purses a brilliant young Lady made out of the left-over wrappers the chocolate comes to us in!! The President of the company wants to run with that one!

Chocolate is the ultimate seduction, by consumption it masterfully and naturally seduces us into feeling better and doing better so that we may have better…and I cannot and shall not resist it!!!

This past weekend was all about “Family”. The business is family-value based and the torch is being passed down to the next generation to run with it and take it to the next level. We were given the opportunity to know life on the inside with the Founders of the company, they laid themselves open to us and thanked us for our support by treating us like Royalty. This one is their Baby and they are doing everything with excellence, the track record is solid, the resources are in place and all that’s left to do is “lift off”, I’ve got my seat on the rocket and I’m hangin’ on for dear sweet life!

Andrew Brooks’ 20-20-60 Rule
The success of this company comes down to 3 things,
20% is the product, 20% is the business management team,
60% is because of the loyalty of its distributors.

The focus was primarily on having fun and building relationships between the different teams that make up the 125,000 chocolate-eaters base. In previous network marketing models “cross-lining” or associating with others in other lines of business was a huge “no-no”. With the subtly new business model we have here it is in everyone’s best interest to co-mingle, swap ideas and even strategically partner for the purposes of assisting each other in this tremendous time of growth.

I haven’t seen so many people speak so much personal truth, it was a bubble I felt comfortable sharing and asking questions in, and in current times, I need to constantly hear more about what’s real and observe what is possible!

We danced the night away in our ball-gowns and tuxes, ate amazing meals and drank way too much, all for the purposes of letting loose, connecting with and getting to know others on the team. Short on sleep and never in our rooms, we played in the casino and danced around the gaming tables to some rockin’ bands late into the night and hung out at the pool sipping pina coladas and mojitos while sharing our stories and rewards of success and challenge!

With this particular opportunity we are re-inventing an industry and moving up the ranks within the compensation plan structure very quickly now, and quicker yet to come…

On Saturday night after the event concluded, several of our “top ‘o’ the pay plan” distributors and team leaders had the top floor of one of the resort’s towers and the suite parties began! The bars were well stocked and the food was plentiful! 100’s of people filed in and hopped from suite to suite to visit with, toast and thank the leaders that otherwise they will only hear and work with over the phone until next year’s event!

My sides are feeling it from the endless laughter, my hips from the dancing and my heart from the connecting. I received the clarity and support I desired to take my business to a level it’s never been to before!

Robert Allen said, “You will make 1000 times more money teaching what you know and love than actually doing what you know and love. I believe there’s a bunch of people that need to learn the art of freedom and ease in their lives and it is my intention to teach them by my example.

It’s tough to walk away from a time and space such as this event untouched on some level by the experience. It was “precedent-setting” in the industry in general, we haven’t seen an entity such as this for some years, nor have we needed something that represents the proverbial “hero” so much.

Recession you say? What recession? Some of us out here are choosing not to participate in that…

First I seek joy, and all else follows, sure as day follows night…

Reward thyself.
–Sandy Chambers – First MXI Canada Ambassador

You are not here to fix anything,
because nothing is broken,
but everything is continually
changing and expanding.

Release your struggle, and seek
joy and fun, and in doing so,
you will align with the fantastic
expanding rhythm of this Universe.

Ode To A Life’s Partner…

I heard his name from across a crowded room on a cold January morning and since that moment, life has never been the same….

He is complex, dark, alluring, seductive, smooth, rich, totally satisfying and fulfilling! Too much of him leaves me intoxicated with bliss, he enhances the quality of my life experience and provides me complete sustenance and frequent, luxurious reprieves from the (sometimes insane) world outside my own. He enhances my personal passion and makes me feel sexy, youthful, full of vitality and strong in my own mental and physical powers. He helps me to stay focused on my path and motivates me to be a better “me” from a place deep inside.

I have totally surrendered to my gnawing desire for him several times a day for almost 2 years now. Whether it’s upon waking; one of the many times throughout the day or [ooh-la-la] before I go to sleep, every time we come together my world shudders at a cellular level. After having him inside me all day so frequently, the outside’s toxins are swept away and somehow [long loud sigh] reality is a little more peaceful and clear. He is my fountain of youthful being…my body, mind and spirit is left uplifted, refreshed and renewed…

He has helped me consistently remove over 40 years of personal trash, and continues to take out the garbage every time I request it of him, his efforts are unmatched by any other I’ve been with for any length of time!

Like myself, he was formed from and born to Mother Nature and assures me life will always be full of vitality, abundance and prosperity if I let him and others like him into my life profusely. He reminds me that he is here for me and not going anywhere anytime soon. He was here long before I came and will be here long after I am gone. And while I am here, he is my personal body guard, swift and powerful in the punch he packs when he stands in protection of me from unwanted intruders!

Sometimes I call him “The Dark Knight” and other times I refer to him as “Mr. Bean”, he always answers to either one and adapts to every situation he’s consumed by, at any time he can be focused and determined or fun and goofy.

He is loved by almost all my family and friends, unconditionally showing up at his best for anyone that will have him, male, female, young or old! And yet, he is often misunderstood by many, he remains a mystery in the ignorance of those who haven’t fully explored the depth of his generous and giving nature.

Alas, even in the light of new and undeniable discoveries into his true intentions and nature, association with him is still considered “sinful” by most. Many choose to relate with him “behind closed doors”, living in secrecy and fear that they will be judged weak in their self-will or lascivious in their desire for him and everything he represents.

As we continue to dance together in perfect synchronicity my world expands and strengthens in its stability every day. I am never without him now, he goes everywhere with me.

As my Grandmother used to say – with vigor – when in the presence of such an attentive and charming hunk,

“Oooooh I could just eat him up!!”

  • “Chocolate is a perfect food as wholesome as it is delicious, a beneficent restorer of exhausted power, but its quality must be good, and it must be carefully prepared. It is highly nourishing and easily digested, and it is fitted to repair wasted strength, preserve health, and prolong life. It agrees with dry temperaments and convalescents; with mothers who nurse their children; with those whose occupations oblige them to undergo severe mental strains; with public speakers, and with all those who give to work a portion of the time needed for sleep. It soothes both stomach and brain, and for this reason, as well as for others, it is the best friend of those engaged in literary pursuits.”

The Diamond That Chocolate Bought…

What a perfect day to finally post this story! The ultimate chocolate and diamonds day…I hope this finds you in a place of feeling well loved.

So are you wondering what to invest some of your golden goose in next? As an Ambassador for connection on the leading edge of thought, I would be remiss if I didn’t let you know about this [ahem] “gem” of an opportunity…

I’ve been wanting to blog about this for a year now and until these past few days it just didn’t feel “right”, like something was missing. I was excited about telling the story and yet I couldn’t bring myself to write it – it lacked “substance” or “credibility”. It needed a punchline, without it there was no “moral to the story”, no real learning. I now have the valuable hindsight available from the broader perspective of 1 year later…

As I look back over the last year I get the giggles, I can clearly see much different results in my reality. I asked for some things fun and new and the Universe delivered with resounding clarity! It pulled some things out of the box I could never have imagined!! Two things stand out, healthy chocolate and colored diamonds!

Exactly 1 year ago today I met on the phone with one of the world’s foremost experts on diamonds, Colin Ferguson of Investing in colored diamonds was the topic of the first call I showed up for through the Freedom Investment Club, an organization I joined through T. Harv Eker’s work. Investing is not something I feel a strong desire to learn, myself aside, learn something I must if I wanted to grow my money like “the big guns”. So I asked the Universe to send something I could do without having to get a degree or accreditation for, I wanted something fun, simple and effective.

After a very fun and informative hour or so with Colin Ferguson – out of Victoria, BC – on the phone I couldn’t help but give the order to go for it! I agreed to have him find me the perfect diamond to begin my collection with! He knew how much I had to invest and off he went in search of the perfect match. At the time a small voice in the back of my mind was questioning whether I was doing the “right” thing, and yet it was so “in alignment” with who I am and what I asked for! It “just felt good”, everything about it seemed “the right thing to do”.

Happy Valentine’s Day To Me!

My Argyle Diamond
This stunner is the first of my collection of investment gems.
For my investment portfolio the Universe sent me
stealth wealth“, “real estate in my pocket” or
the world’s most concentrated form of wealth.”
I’d say that’s pretty good manifesting!
Isn’t it gorgeous!! I am going to go visit it soon.

My diamond pictured above rests comfortably in a vault at Carat’s offices where it is insured by Lloyd’s of London and waiting for the perfect buyer at the perfect time! I’ve committed to hanging onto it for 3 to 5 years. I’m working up to having one custom cut that I’ll actually wear, a purple trillian is what I am wanting – it will be called “THE DiamondJul Diamond”. I feel such a connection to my gem, like me it has come from being a lump of coal under a lot of pressure over time…my perfect rock is out there waiting to be uncovered, cut and polished to the level of perfection it is, I can almost hear it calling to me!

Since a year ago I have been learning what a great decision I did indeed make! My diamond is one of my “chocolate manifestations“. After watching the video at the link below I’m feelin’ proud as a peacock and thinking this was the best Valentine’s gift ever!

I could hear the sucking sounds as the Universe refilled the vacuum I had created just a couple of months before, I wanted an investment other than real estate or the stock market, I’d say I got it!
