This week’s article answers another listener’s question from our Blueprints for Life teleseminars.  Between the 3 calls and the ezine articles I’ve written since we started this topic in December, I’ve answered the basis of every question that’s come in to our survey, including the most recent one which is today’s article.

So as you register for the calls, don’t forget to use the link to ask me your question. I will answer it!

Speaking of that, if you haven’t registered to listen to the 3 Blueprints for Life teleseminars on replay go to:


After the Super Bowl on Sunday I’m off to Scottsdale for a few days and then to  Maui for a while. I’m debating whether to get a spray tan so I’m not so white. Right now only my arms and feet are tan so I’d look strange in a bathing suit.

Last week I mentioned that Barack Obama is wasting no time declaring that things are going to shift in this country and the way we show up in the world. He’s not waiting for anyone’s permission to do it. He’s taking charge and making decisions for the good of this country with consideration for the good of the world.

He went to Capital Hill and talked to Republicans to try to get their support and in the end they didn’t give it, but he moved forward anyway. You can’t always wait for other people to see things your way before you make a change.

Just like the president, there will be hard choices to make in your life and sometimes you will be alone in your decision…and you still have to make one. Always go with what feels right to you and not what a poll tells you to do.

Are you doing that in your own life? I certainly hope you have a plan you’re following. If you would like help creating your blueprint, make a plan now to create your Blueprint for Life with me in San Diego Feb. 20-22nd.


Life happens, be ready for it. Click on the link below and get started creating a vision for your life, a plan for your future, your Blueprint for Life.


Set your goals high enough that they require you to stretch your comfort zone and you’ll be amazed what you can achieve. Ask yourself, “What’s the one thing I can change this year to create the life of my dreams?”

Brett Favre Doesn’t Need To Go To The Super Bowl To Be A Success And Neither Do You

Growing up in Wisconsin I have been a Packers fan as log as I can remember. I grew up during the glory years of Vince Lombardi and Bart Starr.

I have never been prouder of what this team has accomplished than this year. First, Brett Favre came back to play with a very young, inexperienced team when he could have easily retired. He didn’t come back for another fat paycheck, he came back for the love of the game. I’d say he’s at least 10 years older than the majority of players ad yet each and every game , he plays with childlike joy and pure love of the game. There’s no denying it. It shows on his face the entire time he’s playing.

He assumed a leadership role for the young players on his team and that lead to a team that has become a well-oiled machine. At the beginning of the year I thought the Packers would make the playoffs and many thought I was crazy, but even I didn’t think they would make it to the National Championship game.

And they lost…in overtime, by a field goal.

So they aren’t going to the Super Bowl and it’s disappointing. But this young team became a great team this year with incredible leadership by a football legend. They had a very successful season and there is already talk of how this team will be a force to be reckoned with as they get better and grow together over the next couple years.

It hurts to not reach the pinnacle of whatever success you could potentially have at any given moment, but does that mean you’re not successful? Of course not!

Do you set yourself up to feel like a failure when you don’t make it to your personal version of the Super Bowl? Or do you look at how much you accomplished and congratulate yourself?

Yes, I’m sure the team will be watching those game films to review what they could have done better. Reviewing your performance is how you improve. Just don’t review to beat yourself up for what you didn’t do right.

Achieving a breakthrough to success sometimes looks like a small quiet success instead of a big public one, but all those small successes make all the difference in who you are becoming.

Just look at Brett Favre.
