Many people have asked me why I created my program, “Having It All,” and I realize that some people simply do not believe that it is possible to ‘have it all.’ Well, I am going to dispel that rumor once and for all.
If you are serious about learning what it takes, then read on and I’ll take you on a short journey. I’ll also share with you two incredible resources I’ve created – more on that later.
First, let’s suppose that at some point in the past, for whatever reason, by whichever means, there was a big bang, or there was not. It doesn’t really matter. All we know is somehow, our universe, solar system, galaxies, and planets are here, (and specifically our planet) and that’s where I’ll begin.
The number being thrown around right now is that our universe is at least 12.5 billion years old. The reason for the prelude is to set the stage for some thought and greater understanding.
While you and I do what we do every day, there are others who study the “what” and “how” of the universe. They are figuring out how it all began, what the galaxies are, and even closer to home, what our planets are and how they do what they do. How this occurred is irrelevant at this point. It just is. After all, we’re pretty sure the planets and galaxies were all here before us.
Instead, I like to think of our universe and planet Earth as our ‘playing field’, and our body and mind as ‘the vehicles’ we have been given to play on the field. So here we are, on this field, and we now have two choices:
Either way, the game is on, and you must choose whether you are going to play or watch. If you have chosen to play, let me explain to you that that there are people who study the playing field every day. They have discovered very specific natural laws that govern our universe, galaxies and planet.
If you are a serious player, knowing these laws, and understanding them would have a serious impact on how well you play the game, don’t you think?
There is one Great Law that suggests that everything we see (and can’t see) is made up of energy. There are also seven other major natural laws that work synergistically, and they allow the playing field to do what it does with such ease and perfection. Unfortunately, we have never been taught how to be in harmony with these laws.
It’s time we raise our awareness and begin playing at a higher level…
Let’s leave the laws alone for a moment, and discuss our body and mind.
For the most part, the physical body is easy to understand. We have studied it for over 6,000 years, and have learned a couple of tricks to keep it going faster and longer. We have five physical senses to help us decipher and understand the stimuli around us or on us.
The mind, however, is a little bit more complex. Scientists and theologians have discovered that we have six intellectual functions that are part of our conscious mind, and we also have three subconscious functions that assist us with much more complex issues and needs.
So here we are, playing the game, and I ask you this question, ‘How well do you understand the basic natural laws of the playing field, and how well do you understand the functions of the body and mind?’
For many people the answer is the same. Not very well. The reason we do not know the answers, is because we have never been taught to look at the whole picture. Very few people have studied and understood how to connect the whole deal in a way that it is easy to understand and apply.
I will suggest that in order to ‘Have It All’, you must first understand the basics for making it possible. Look around you and observe the perfection and precision in everything. There are no accidents. It all operates by exact order.
If you choose not to learn how all of it works, that is totally up to you. You are then choosing to play at a mediocre level, and not at the level you are capable of.
As I mentioned before, you make the decisions on whether to play or watch, and then, how well you want to play. Learning the playing field and how you function makes the game much more fun!
Not knowing the basic laws is like not understanding gravity. Not understanding yourself is like being a pilot who doesn’t know exactly how all of her plane’s instruments work. Would YOU get on that plane?
Even once we understand the playing field, and the optimum way to use our body and mind, we still need to learn the rules relating to the five different games being played… those games are called health, wealth, relationships, career, and spirituality.
The games are complex, especially if we aren’t taught the rules, angles and ways to win. Once again, if we choose to learn, the games become much more fun and easier to play.
I have invested more than 20 years into this exact research and have discovered the fastest and simplest way to have what I want. My deepest desire is that you discover a few things to make your journey outstanding.
All you must do is be open to learn how to play, and grow again like you did when you were a child.
Whatever you do, remember to create a masterpiece with your life. It is your choice!
Here is a little pop quiz for you. In 1923, who was:
These men were considered some of the world’s most successful in their day.
Now, 85 years later, the history book asks us if we know what ultimately became of them.
However, that same year in 1923, the PGA Champion and the winner of the most important golf tournament, the US Open, was Gene Sarazen.
What became of him?
He was healthy and played golf until he was 92, died in 1999 at the age of 95 and… he was financially secure at the time of his death.
So what’s the purpose of this little tale? Is it to play golf until you are 92? The answer is… only if that’s your passion.
The purpose of this message is to invite you to live life on your own terms. Life is too short to settle for less than your full potential.
To you Having It All,
The other day I was watching a short movie called Finish Strong, and I was reminded of the story of Wilma Rudolf.
Wilma Rudolf was born July 23, 1940 into a large family of 22 in Clarksville, Tennessee. Growing up in a community parted by racial discrimination, Wilma never received proper medical attention as a child. She was diagnosed with one illness after another: measles, mumps, scarlet fever, chicken pox and double pneumonia. Until finally she was diagnosed with polio, a crippling disease that had no cure and doctors told her mother that Wilma would never walk.
Wilma’s mother drove her to be treated twice a week at Meharry Hospital, the black medical college in Nashville, even though it was 50 miles away and the family was strapped for funds. After 2 years, Wilma was able to walk with the aid of metal leg braces and by the age of 12 she could walk normally with no assistance. It was then that she decided to become an athlete.
“My mother taught me very early to believe I could achieve any accomplishment I wanted to. The first was to walk without braces,” said Wilma. She would go on to win three gold medals in a single Olympics and be placed in the Olympics Hall of Fame.
Amazing stories like this remind me of how fortunate I have been in life and proves that with a mindset for success and a will to succeed anything can be accomplished.
You should know by now that I am a risk-taker. I have a lot of faith and, truth be told, my risks are pretty calculated. I do my best due diligence before I take any sort of action, and do what I can to eliminate undesired results. Then I charge forward with the belief that no matter what happens, everything will work out fine—or at least the way it was supposed to. I trust one hundred percent of my being to the universe.
If you don’t risk money, you’re not going to make a lot of it. If you don’t risk your emotions, you can’t have a deep, fulfilling relationship. If you don’t risk falling short of your dreams, you’ll never come close to them.
But don’t take a risk while focusing on what could go wrong, because the law of attraction will ensure that what you fear most will happen. If you focus on failure, you can never succeed. If you focus on being hurt by a relationship, you can never feel loved. But don’t take my word for it—test my ideas by starting to take risks. You have been given the unique power to make choices. Every other animal on this planet is confined.
But you have the ability to co-create your own destiny with the powers given to you. To achieve the life of your dreams, you must first have total and undeniable faith in yourself and in God, your Creator, the Universal Intelligence—whatever you choose to call your source. That’s why the greatest risks of all are called leaps of faith.
Are you ready to take a leap of faith to live the life of your dreams? My FREE guide below can help you achieve your goals and more.
Long ago I read about a study on goal setting. This study revealed that the number one reason most people do NOT write down their goals is for fear of not achieving them.
The best acronym I’ve ever heard for fear is:
(F)alse (E)motions (A)ppearing (R)eal
Never let fear take you off course before you’ve even left the harbor!
It’s very easy—and normal—for a captain to get scared when entering uncharted waters. But this is your life—your ship—and if you want to get to your destination, you must sail on.
I use this analogy for some of my business coaching and of course it applies to every day life as well: when we get caught in life’s storm, fear begins to set in if we do not know how to handle the inclement weather. Great captains learn to chart their course and prepare as best as they can for the storms. They learn to use the wind to fill their sails, not destroy them.
You can learn to be a great captain of and for yourself. It will take more than a certified life coach to help get you there; it will take your time and your effort. Yet, honestly, it is no more time and/or effort than living a mediocre life. It’s up to you.
For you to make headway in your journey, you must be totally honest about where you are today. It serves no purpose to lie to yourself about where you currently are. You must understand that where you are now is only the result of past thinking and planning (or lack of either or both).
Give it some deep thought. This will helps you assess your physical, mental, and spiritual health to reach greatness in living the life of your dreams.
You can achieve new results if they are carefully thought through and monitored so your outcome is consistent with your desires and dreams. So what are you waiting for—anchors away! Time to allow the law of attraction to work for you!
A part of the goal-setting process that many people struggle with is creating action plans. One way to conquer this obstacle before it even arises is to get a mentor. I’ve had many–I can’t imagine being as successful as I have been without my mentors guiding me.
Identify Your Role Model
If you’ve always wanted to be a professional juggler, but have no idea of where to start with your action plan, find information about a successful professional juggler or two in your area. They will be your role models. There’s someone who dominates in every field, so you always have access to people who are excelling at something at which you would like to excel. Find out what they do and how they do it, then copy what you need, making it your own by adding your own personal twist or genius to it.
Don’t be afraid to ask–after all, imagine how flattered you would feel if someone asked you to be a mentor (and when you start accomplishing your goals, someone might just do that)!
Asking for a Mentor
Once you’ve identified some role models and selected one whom you would like as a mentor, you ask him or her. It’s that simple. “Would you be willing to mentor me?”
Of course, you should let your mentor know why such a relationship would benefit him or her, as well. Make sure you propose to meet at his or her office, and volunteer your talents in some way, such as aiding with a pet project, so that you are helping in return. If you’ve done enough research on your prospective mentor, you should be able to come up with a creative way to help him or her that also demonstrates your familiarity with their work.
Following is a sample conversation you can alter to suit your own personality.
“I want to accomplish ____________, and I respect the results you’ve produced in your life. Would you be willing to help by meeting with me once a week so I can learn from your achievements? I’d like to make it worth your while by ____________. Does a mentor relationship with me sound like something you’d enjoy?”
Don’t rush this process, and make sure you have a few back-up role models to ask in case your first choice(s) are too busy to help.

Have you ever noticed how there are about as many reactions to an experience on a roller coaster as there are people? One loves it and another is petrified. One is yelling “Woohoo!” and the other is screaming “Oh, no!” One could end up with a belief that roller coasters are scary, while the other person could end up with a belief that roller coasters are exhilarating. Or maybe they brought those beliefs to the ride in the first place.
Different people form opposite beliefs about the same experience all the time. Which beliefs are true? Neither. Or both. The real question to ask yourself is, “Which beliefs will get me where I want to go in life?” Luckily for you, you get to choose for yourself.
When my son Keenan was seven, we were invited to go paragliding in San Diego. I called his mom and left her a message inviting her to join us at the glider port, when we would jump off a cliff harnessed to an instructor.
Can you tell that I’m a more adventurous parent?
His mom came to watch and almost fainted as our son ran off the cliff harnessed to the instructor, the ocean five hundred feet below. It was the first time paragliding for both my son and me, so I didn’t know what to expect and was a little scared myself.
Keenan’s initial belief was, “Wow! This will be so much fun!” After the experience, his positive belief and perception about heights and paragliding were forever ingrained in his mind. His mom’s first thought was that this would be dangerous, but her negative belief was so rattled by our experience that since then she has expressed a slight desire to try it herself sometime.
Some of our beliefs are formed instantly, such as when a significant emotional experience occurs, while others are formed over time, after several experiences. What’s important to remember is that beliefs aren’t good or bad; they just are. As you already know, you must understand and evaluate the beliefs you have to determine whether or not they’re serving you and helping you create the life you really want.
Lets continue to create that life of your dreams—by starting with the beliefs that will serve you! You can discover more about how to do this with my FREE guide below.
Do you ever feel the need for peace and serenity? Do you take time out of your busy day to reflect on your life and the way you live it?
By setting aside a few moments each day to explore your unconscious mind, you will improve the quality of your day.
It can sometimes be difficult to find time for meditation. In my own life, I had to make meditation my first priority in the morning in order to work it into my schedule. As soon as I wake up, I pile pillows in back of myself in bed and meditate right there—that way, I always have time for it. I can’t imagine starting a day without it.
Some people are quite creative in working meditation into their lives. Creating a quiet space can sometimes be as much of a hurdle as creating time. You could reserve a corner in a room, and make sure that it remains clean and uncluttered so that it is always ready for you. A closet large enough to sit in could become a peaceful meditation hideaway for you, complete with comfortable pillow and decorations. A secluded corner of a garden would also work. Many of those who meditate like to have their personal sacred objects around them—a beloved picture, a favorite candle, a beautiful rug. No matter what appeals to you, you must decide to make room for meditation, every day.
There are many different methods of meditation. Explore all the possibilities and find one that works for you. Every meditation’s objective is to go into the silence. Multiple resources exist—you could consult magazines, books, web sites, religious organizations, seminars, workshops, and meditation/yoga centers. You could also try instructional videos or CDs, which provide guided meditations. Following is a short list of several methods of meditation: Some may surprise you, but meditation is more a matter of what you bring to the practice—patience and a desire to silence the mind—than of what the practice entails.
A meditation can be anything which takes you into silence, both inner and outer, and clears your mind of all thoughts. Try as many methods as you need until you find one—or more—that work for you, and proceed on your journey to the life of your dreams.
