Do you have a bucket list or a list of goals?

What? What’s the difference? I questioned as I listened to the sweet lady on the radio, as the DJ asked her, “What is on your bucket list?”

She began to tell of everything on her ‘list’. Go see beautiful sights, meet certain people, ect. Then the guy asked,”Were any of these on your goal list before you were diagnosed?”

Wait a minute…What? What is the difference? Is there a difference?

I anxiously waited for her response…she replied with…

UGH! A commercial break. Tell me! Were these two list the same? Was there any other list?

When they returned to the interview nothing was said about the goal question. No, not one darn thing. They skipped over it like it wasn’t even asked.

Yes, you already know it is time for a Mrs. Drake investigation!

I must know does everyone have a bucket and a goal list? Are they the same? And if not why are they different?

I began to ask these questions to family members. Their responses were all over the place. However, we all agreed on one thing the difference is a bucket list is something you think of when your possible exit date is known and a goal list is for the living.

Hmmmm I am not sure I agree with this concept.

Let me ask you this…doesn’t it make more sense to combine the two lists and begin living to ‘accomplish’ those experiences you so desire.

What if ‘get a job’ on your goal list was changed to…

Bucket list- I will find a company that appreciates my talents and what I like to do. We cocreate together to improve their business and to improve my revenue.

Goal list- Be Married by 25.

Bucket List- Fall in Love, laugh alot, enjoy them each day like it is Our last together.

Goal List- Take a trip to Italy..

Bucket List- My love and I travel to Italy and stay in quaint little Air B&Bs each night.

What are your thoughts on Goal List vs. Bucket List?

Let me know because these two words seem to be similar. However, the general perspective might be a little messed up.

I don’t know about you but I think I want to LIVE each day focusing on my bucket list, rather than making goals that I may never reach.

But if I think it could be my last day, month, or year…how much more will I accomplish versus the list of ‘goals’ that I think I SHOULD DO.

This thought is still in the works! Therefore, I will take any advice on the topic, if you would like to share!

Also I am looking for a title of my newest book…For Network Marketers and Companies to grow by leaps and bounds. My original title was…Why do I HATE/LOVE you…NETWORK MARKETERS?

I would love to know what type of title would intrigue you to purchase and read this book?

(Side note…be on the look out for this book because the first two weeks it will be at a big discount. And Karatbars Affiliates we have some surprises for you!)

Archery & Life

Have you ever thought about shooting a bow & arrow? What does it take? Is it simple, can anyone pick it up and directly hit the bullseye? Maybe, 1 in 1,000,000!

The fact is launching an arrow from the bow, is a learned skill set within itself. Not to mention hitting a bullseye!

During the wee hours of the morning, I tossed and turned, as I observed myself and several others learning to shoot a bow and arrow. The unknown instructor would explain, demonstrate and repeat over and over again. Next, we would follow his every move until…LAUNCH!

Many arrows fell directly at our feet, some would wildly shoot into the darkness. Those of us that struggled over and over again would become frustrated and aggitated to the point of giving up!

Then it happened! Our instructor said, “Lay down your bows. Close your eyes. Listen to my words”…as they explained step by step just the same as before, they would pause after each instruction, to allow us to visualize the actions needed to be successful.

The last instruction was, “Pick up your bow, place your fingers in the correct position, pull back and launch…feel the arrow as it soars through the air and plunges directly in the middle, BULLSEYE!!!!

Do you celebrate the small accomplishments or are you constantly desiring more?

Begin to allow yourself to celebrate. Feel the sense of accomplishment! What would your action be?

Would you thrust your arms into the air to send a vibration of YES, HOORAY, HIP-HIP-HOORAY? Feel the emotions that accompany your moment of success!”

As each person in my dream picked up their bow and arrow, they seemed to become illuminated. Along with the target. The darkness filled the empty spaces. Step, by step…each person practiced feeling their way to a bullseye! Some cheered as success filled their being with tingly emotions of ACCOMPLISHMENT.

Yet, others never hit the bullseye. However, something was different this time around. Those who didn’t hit the bullseye weren’t upset…Instead, they were uplifted and full of determination. In other words they had been given a second and third chance.

What about you? Have you taken time to visualize ‘how you want to feel’ after you have accomplished the ultimate bullseye?

Have you learned of what your true desires are? Sometimes we are attracting nothing or living based on a default program called auto-pilot. Do this at 9, be here at 10, ballgames until 8, supper, bed, sleep, repeat.

It takes only a moment to visualize. Yet, it takes some of us a lifetime to understand how similar life is to archery.

1. Archery: You need a skilled educator to teach you and guide you.

Life: Loved ones, mentors, friends

2. Observe, gather, and learn.

Life: from the day you are born you are observing, gathering ideas, beliefs and developing the skills set you need to survive.

3. Visualize, feel the celebratory outcome and cheer!

Life: How many accomplishments have you made, that you have shuffled under the carpet? Instead of illuminating your own experiences and talents.

4. Do it! Pick it up and launch the arrow!

Life: Are your launched arrows dropping at your feet? Due to failure to see the end feeling or for lack of launching at all?

You will hit many more bullseyes the more arrows you launch. But if you do not allow yourself to know what your target is, your arrows will either fall at your feet with a dud. Or launch into the darkness never to reappear.

Take the time to know at least what you most desire right now and begin to take the necessary steps to learn how to ‘launch’ you arrow. Before long you will hit a bullseye like it is second nature because you ‘know’ where it is going and how to ensure it makes it SMACK DAB in the middle!!!! BULLSEYE!!!

Hello there! I am super happy to share with you.

Come along and follow me! I may be able to help you attract the life you have always desired!

Or you may have something to assist me in HITTING MY BULLSEYE.

So come follow me as we take this MILLIONAIRE by law of attraction journey! Who knows this could be FUN!

Okay, if you do not know me, let me reassure you this journey is gonna be the time of your life! So please come share with me!!!! Come cocreate, coexist and persist to be happy 99% of the time.

Do you realize how many times you kill your own Genie?

Go back to my previous post, If I could give you anything…Anything! What would you ask for? Because this posting is part two of the story about a Genie in the Bottle and your wishes.

Remember when I wrote let’s leave the bottle for the bottom feeders? That’s because your Genie doesn’t have to go into the bottle, but you do need to learn how to recognize your Genie. I can’t tell you how many times I have coached people and they say, “I don’t think I have a Genie.”

And I reply with, “Yes, you do! In fact you have limitless Genies, but you need to first stop killing them so you can begin allowing them to grant your wishes.

Let’s begin small…(phrases that you use)…I don’t understand how you can say I have a Genie or several when I have all these bills. I work all the time and yet I never have enough to make ends meet. If I could win the Lottery or if you could give me a loan then I would be ‘better’.

If a Genie says, “Your wish is my command…”

And nothing else! (Pause! Take a deep breath for the next paragraph)…

1. You killed your Genie in the very beginning with not believing. (See any comparisons religious leaders? If you don’t believe and you go around being miserable, then why would you expect others to follow your beliefs or teachings or even Savior? Keep in mind this applies to all aspects of our lives).

2. Bills! Bills! Bills! Your wish is my command…it doesn’t say you can wish them away, but even if it did you didn’t do that. Instead, you killed the Genie, then you ‘kind of’ revived it, to ask for more of? Well, the only thing you could focus on which results in receiving as a wish, was lack of money and money to pay bills! And of course you also asked for less time and for your ‘ends’ to never meet! Whatever that means!

Enough is enough! Let’s correct that phrase and then begin to redirect all of our other wishes as we, carry on.

Try this: I have always been protected since the day I was born. Call it a Genie or a higher power, I know it’s real because there have been too many times I could have given up.

My wish is to feel better. To earn more because I am being compensated for how awesome I am. (If you don’t believe you are awesome then correct the image in the mirror until you are awesome to you. Meaning you are what you say you are…and I say you have an awesome you in there, it’s up to you to find it!).

If only I had a wish…I wish for__________. Fill in your blank. But remember to not tell of what is or has been. Only allow yourself to wish. And I promise if you will continue to wish for what you want, stop killing your Genie by not believing, and believe in the creation of you…Your Wish will Appear like a Bright, Shining, Gold Ring! Enjoy this day. Enjoy this wish…

My wish for you is to feel good. If you are suffering at this time my wish for you is to feel better! You deserve to feel better! You deserve to be better! You deserve to…

Perspectives Change Everything…

I love to travel, meet new people, and experience other cultures. One of the main reasons is to look at the wide variety of perspectives and how they make me feel.

Let me see if I can illuminate this topic with different ‘perspectives’.

Oh how I love California! The ocean views, beautiful hiking, fabulous people, it is truly the land of opportunity! Movie stars, Millionaires, Beverly Hills, Shopping, and diversity beyond belief!

Oh how I hate California! Poverty, traffic, heroine alleys, gangs, fires, mud slides, and earthquakes.

Both Perspectives are completely true. No one can deny you can find each item on my list in California.

It is about your perspective and how you see it. Yes, life has some hand in what your perspective is.

For example, there was a young boy in North Carolina (on @Wave 3 News last night) who was selling Lemonade on the corner. His lemonade stand was robbed and he was held at gun point to give all of his, under twenty dollars, over to this man!

Omg, the first thing that went through my mind was how this poor boy felt. He is probably going to be scared to death to ever sell anything again. I mean he might have been ten years old…this is terrible! I feel so bad!!!

Then the rest of the story was released…Lowe’s in his town heard of this terrible robbery and ask the boy what he was selling ‘Organic Lemonade’ for. When he explained he was raising money to purchase a riding lawn mower, they gave him one!!!

I am not sure of the details if you want to read more look it up on Wave 3 News August 6th.

But what a lesson for everyone! That young boy has been given an entirely different perspective.

Life gave him lemons, he tried making lemonade, life created turpin tine, to give him a life line.

I mean yes we have much to celebrate! As for this young boy receiving a gift, but what about another perspective…he also received a terrific most valuable gift…his life!

What didn’t stop that criminal from robbing a young boys lemonade stand, did stop him from taking the boys life. Somewhere in that ‘bad’ person there is Good.

I know there will always be bad things that happen. I also realize just tilting your head slightly to the right or left, may not be able to ‘fix’ all the wrongs in the world today.

However, I do know that there is One Universal Goal that we ALL SHARE! What might that be? To Better…to better your life, abundance, emotions, life, legacy, spiritual connection the world. It doesn’t matter what you do or have done…us as humans are all in this together. To create a betterment for each other and generations to come.

Sometimes achieving the betterment goal, is by simply adjusting your focus.

Guess what adjusting your perspective automatically resets your focus. Which in turn creates one giant step towards YOU FEELING BETTER! Yippee!! That makes me feel happy and fancy free!

Take time to Pause today to glance at what your perspective is. Do you see all angles? Now decide which feels better and choose that perspective.

I promise if I focused on all the bad that I have had, I can’t imagine where I would have ever found my good friend, Glad!

I wish for you to see the good in everything around you! The cup is half full or half empty, if it has anything in at all. You get to choose your own Perspective!
