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!)

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!!!

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.
Look at the life cycle of a butterfly. Coming from a tiny egg, suspended underneath a flimsy leaf. One drop of water, one piece of Hail hits their nest and SPLAT! Hurdle number one!
I see quite a few similarities to humans and butterflies already. Don’t you? We begin in a sac and it’s up to someone else to determine our fate. Because after all there is pro choice, some parents use drugs while pregnant. Ugh orrrrr somebody else thinks they can hurt a mommy and it’s alright grrrr. Okay go back…I went to far (music plays in the background) back to the butterfly cycle.
Then they have to eat frantically to basically stay alive, long enough to create an outer coating to protect them while they metamorphosis into an almost beautiful butterfly. Shew!!!!
Humans have to fight to stay alive from birth until their current age. I mean think about it when I was born my mom didn’t strap me with a five point harness and carefully drive the speed limit to get out of the hospital. In fact she probably held me without a seat belt.
Plus, children aren’t born with racism, offensive language, the emotions of awe did I hurt your feelungs? No they were born with ummmmm that feels terrific, do some more of that. Or that was fun let’s play some more.
But we still had to learn quite quickly eat your food because, somewhere there are children that would die for one spoonful of your Peas and Liver and onions, doused in butter or crisco. Yes, us humans and butterflies have similar life cycles.
Let’s move on to the tightly wrapped chrysalis, which you know is uncomfortable. And everytime a ‘threat’ disturbs the outer casing the wrap seems to squeeze a little tighter or wrap a few more strands.
As miraculous as it is to observe and enjoy. It reminds me of middle school through my twenties. Maybe until 33, but let’s just say 29ish. 😉
How FREAKING AWKWARD were those years. I felt like I was in a cacoon the entire time. I would wiggle and squirm. Lash out at the ones who were closest to me and sometimes even hurt others out of fear from being hurt, once again.
We go thru really down times, no one understands us and we always feel like we are begging to just feel better and not so confined.
The time has come…the freeing of the butterfly. It is probably the most frustrating observation you could ever have. Although it is extremely beautiful, the struggles to break free are real! It’s worse than watching a baby chick be born or even a human baby! They begin really small. The struggle is necessary! If anyone helps a butterfly break free…it will die!
Why? Because those struggles are for the butterflies wings to build strength. If their wings are weak, then the butterfly won’t be able to fly. And won’t be able to take cover when necessary, find food, or lay more eggs to create, yet the next beautiful generation of surviving beauty!
What about us? How many times during our struggles do we wish it was over? We wish for an easier way?
But if you didn’t have all your trials and tribulations where would you be? No one enjoys everything about those formative years. Nor can anyone place a time line on when YOU are ready to spread your wings and fly!
However, you will fly someday! If you just keep on believing, building, and growing. It won’t be long until you have outgrown your own cacoon and although the comfort of staying safe is cozy, your desires are screaming…we are hungry!
Is today your day to bust out? Are you ready to gain enough strength to fly? Keep on keeping on. Dream it, see it, and Most of ALL BE IT!!!!
Thank you precious butterflies for teaching us…that no amount of struggling can stop us from showing off our beautiful wings!!!!

As Debbie and I recorded I recognized an issue, which popped up, that I hadn’t thought about since July 4th. it was about some live interviews, asking people,”If they were proud to be an American?”
When they responded with a big NO, Eric and I were like angry Apes screaming at the radio!
Therefore, here are my thoughts on the topic!
If you ate a meal, any meal yesterday…You can be proud to be an American!
If you have a day off, any day off and you are over 18… (Meaning not a child laborer) American proud.
If you are purchasing back to school items and not begging on the streets, to all the tourist for enough money, to GET to attend school for one day…Proud to be an American!
If you are a woman and you have rights AND you get to live today because no one is going to beat or terrorize you for the clothes you wear or any other silly reason…WOMEN SAY IT LOUD & SAY IT PROUD…”I AM PROUD TO BE AN AMERICAN!”
If you are a Christian, Jew, Catholic, Atheist, Jehova Witness, Protestant, Muslim or any other Religion…I hope, with all my heart you are a PROUD AMERICAN!
If you own your own business…yep Stand Strong and be proud to be AN AMERICAN!
I could write on and on, but I think I will allow you to take it from here.
Why are you PROUD TO BE AN AMERICAN?
Idc what your political views are this isn’t about POLITICIANS this is about YOU and ME!
PLEASE don’t let someone/anyone take your pride. Because just like this time and all other times that will be…THIS TOO SHALL PASS! The politicians will change, leadership will transition, but you and I…we will still continue on.
Let’s choose ‘together’ to let her glory shine, be the American you want to be and see our beautiful country as…
The land of the FREE & BRAVE!
I am PROUD TO BE AN AMERICAN!
Thank you to all the active military and veterans! You always make me proud and I am super grateful for you! (Including my 2 nephews, Jade, Uncle Rod, Poppy & many more 😊)
As always, thank you for reading. And if you so choose, let us know, Why you are proud to be an America or even in AMERICA.
Sending you great love!
