Part I – Live Your Life: 7 Reasons Why You Are Amazing
Your natural state is to be happy, peaceful, joyous, and full of excitement at being alive. In this natural state you feel wonderful about yourself and your relationships with the people in your life. You enjoy your work and derive a great sense of satisfaction from making a contribution that makes a difference. Your primary goal should be to organize your life in such a way that this is how you feel most of the time.
As a fully functioning, fully mature adult, you should be doing things every day that move you toward the fulfillment of your potential. You should feel grateful for all your blessings in every area. If you are unhappy or dissatisfied in any part of your life, something is not right in your thoughts, feelings, or actions, and it needs to be corrected.
The starting point in unlocking your full potential is to realize that you already are a prince or princess, deep down inside. No matter where you are today, or what you have done or not done in the past, you need to accept seven essential truths about you as a person and why you are special:
Reason #1: You Are Good
You are a thoroughly good and excellent person. No one is better than you or more gifted than you. Only when you doubt your essential goodness and value do you begin to question yourself. The inability to accept that you are good lies at the root of much of your discontent.
Reason #2: You Are Important, in Many, Many Ways
Your personal universe revolves around you as an individual. You give meaning to everything that you see or hear. How important you feel largely determines the quality of your life. Happy, successful people feel important and valuable. Because they feel and act this way, it becomes true for them.
Unhappy, frustrated people feel unimportant and of little value. They feel frustrated and unworthy. They feel “I’m not good enough,” and as a result they lash out at the world and engage in behaviors that hurt themselves and others. Remember, you are amazing and nothing in your world has any significance except for the significance that you attribute to it.
Reason #3: You Have the Ability Live your Life to the Greatest Potential
You have the capability to create and live your life as you desire and you have unlimited potential to accomplish this. You could not use your entire potential if you lived one hundred lifetimes. No matter what you have accomplished up to now, it is merely a hint of what is truly possible for you. And the more of your natural talents and abilities you develop in the present, the more of your potential you can develop in the future.
Your belief in your unlimited potential is the key to becoming everything you are truly capable of becoming.
Remember, you are the source of your life and experiences. You can do, be and have anything as long as it does not violate the rights of others. Acknowledge yourself for the good you are and the good you do and then acknowledge others for their contribution.
Have a Magnificent Week!

Once you have completed your Self Inventory, Elimination List and created a vacuum for what you want in your life, you are ready to create your Game Plan for $uccess.
GAME PLAN FOR $UCCESS:
Vision and purpose are ongoing and expansive. Your vision is what you see yourself creating, an image of the future that you seek to create.
Your purpose is your reason why, your motivation for creating your vision. It is your driving force, compelling you onward over any obstacle or challenge. Your purpose should be transcendent.
Objectives (goals) need to be specific and measurable. Like helping five people every day, or earning $10,000 a month or more, or taking a trip to Hawaii by 12/1/13. They have dates and numbers so that they can be achieved and measured.
Action steps are the specific tasks that you must do to achieve your promises and actualize your vision and purpose. They are the details that must be done to make your Game Plan of $uccess happen. They are the actions you must take consistently until you complete your plan.
Be aware and conscious to choose words that are empowering. They must truly represent your divine plan or the truth in your heart and spirit. If it is a good idea but not your truth or burning desire, how will you really tap into your passion? This is your time to shine and follow your highest good.
Having a magnificent and inspiring purpose is critical to your success. You will discover that your purpose is actually quite simple and it usually relates to service. One of our greatest callings is to be of service to others and make a difference in this world.
It is helpful to use a dictionary and look up the meaning of the key words you want to use in your vision and purpose statements. Often, the meaning of a word is different than you think. Make sure that the words you choose truly express and represent your intention, feelings and truth. If it does not inspire you, how will it inspire others?
A clearly written Game Plan puts down your creative ideas in physical form on paper and takes this important information out of your mind so that you can clearly focus on it. There is a wonderful saying, “I hear and I forget, I see and I remember, I write and I understand.”
It is essential for you to convey the essence of your vision and purpose in a simple sentence. If you had ten seconds to share your concept what would you say and how would you say it to totally and powerfully convey your truth? Remember “KISS,” Keep It Simple Superstar!
“Where there is vision, people prosper.”
The power of vision is extraordinary.
Throughout history it has led to the world’s greatest accomplishments.
At the core of every great discovery or creation is a powerful vision.
Have a wonderful and prosperous week!

Enjoy this short video:
There is an old Hindu legend that tells when the Gods were making the world they asked, “Where can we hide the most valuable of treasures, so that they will not be lost? How can we hide them so that the lust and greed of men will not steal or destroy them. What can we do to make sure that these riches will carry on from generation to generation for the benefit for all mankind?”
So in their wisdom they selected a hiding place that was so obvious that it would not be seen and there they placed the true riches of life endowed with the true power of perpetual self-replenishment. In this hiding place these treasures can be found by every living person in every land who follows the success system that never fails.
Where is this hiding place? The most valuable of treasures are hidden within you. No one can steal or destroy them. You cannot lose them. For the true riches of life are hidden in the hearts and minds of man.
THE KEYS TO ACHIEVING EXCELLENCE IN ANY OR ALL AREAS OF YOUR LIFE:
1) Daily Meditation
Consistent meditation improves your life in all areas; spiritually, mentally, emotionally, physically and financially. Meditation assists you in detaching from the daily “mind set” or your conditioning and to discover your true greatness as an unlimited spiritual and human being.
Benefits of Meditation:
- Reduced stress
- Strengthening of the body’s immune system
- Slowing of biological aging processes
- More orderly thinking
- Improved intellectual abilities
- Enhanced appreciation for enjoying life
- Greater ease in overcoming or renouncing addictive behaviors
- Spontaneous psychological transformation
- More obvious, awakened spiritual growth
I highly recommend Roy Eugene Davis’ “An Easy Guide to Meditation.”
You can find it on his website and download it or order the pamphlet from CSA.
Writing out a complete self-inventory clarifies all of your qualities and where you are in your patterns of thought, actions and results in your life. By acknowledging your truth you see the specific growth and progress you have made to date, determine what your most important qualities are and where your focused attention and effort must be to achieve your divine plan.
Go to my blog entry “Self Mastery” on April 17, 2013 for complete instructions on how to complete this insightful experience.
3) Elimination List & Forgiveness
Writing out your Elimination List for all relatives, friends, associates and people in your life, who you need to forgive or need forgiveness from, will free you to create the life and results you want. It allows you to clear your mind, spirit and energy to freely create a new space or canvas to paint the masterpiece of your life.
Go to my blog entry “Create Prosperity – The Miracle of Elimination & Forgiveness” on April 18, 2013 for more information.

The Miracle of Elimination and Forgiveness
From “Open Your Mind to Prosperity” by Catherine Ponder:
“You cleanse your mind for prosperity and attract your good by first writing out what you want to eliminate from your life. By writing out what you want to eliminate, you open the space and create a vacuum for what you want to manifest. Just like planting a victory garden, you want to clear and weed the soil so that it is clean and fertile before planting your highest quality seeds and plants (dreams and desires).
If you want to be prospered, healed and have your prayers answered, you must clean up and clean out your life. It is said that God (as divine law) withholds the next development until order is first established in the present situation.
After you write out your elimination list, the next step to cleanse your mind for prosperity is by practicing forgiveness. Holding grudges and negative feelings toward others, or toward yourself blocks your own prosperity. Until you practice forgiveness, your true prosperity will not come.
When you hold resentment toward someone of something, you are bound to that person or condition by an emotional link that is stronger than steel. The practice of forgiveness is the only way to dissolve that link and be free.
The word forgive means “to give up or let go.” Forgiveness is a pleasant inner act that leaves you at peace with yourself and others. Forgiveness is also a constant process. It needs to be done on a regular basis with any negative feelings toward people or conditions. Along with declaring that you forgive other people, declare that they also forgive you. Also release situations or conditions you have been unable to resolve.
A good formula is to forgive your enemies and release your friends. Forgive the people you hate or resent. Release the people you love. Remember that you never lose anything that still belongs to you by divine right, through the act of emotional release. Instead, you make way for your good to manifest in grander ways than ever before.”
“I now let go of worn out things, worn out conditions, and worn out relationships. Divine order is now established and maintained in me and in my world.”
“The inflow and outflow of everything in my life is established in divine order. I am peaceful and poised.”
“All that has offended me, I forgive. Within and without, I forgive. Things past, things present, things future I forgive. I forgive everything and everybody who can possibly need forgiveness in my past and present. I forgive positively everyone. I am free and all others are free, too. All things are cleared up between us, now and forever.”
“I now release and am released from everything and everybody that are no longer part of the divine plan for my life. Everything and everybody that are no longer part of the divine plan for my life now release me.”
“I am in right relationship with all people and all situations now.”
