Do you live in the Outcome?

Watched James Ray, author of “Harmonic Wealth” speak last night at the Rosen Resort in Orlando. I agree with his message and he’s very intelligent. In my opinion, he came off a little sales pitchy.

The Rosen Shingle Creek Resort is beautiful! The gals and I had a drink afterwards at the lobby bar and discussed the show. We were pleasantly surprised to have the bar packed with good looking men in suits.

Sitting here at my desk and thinking about my goals, I feel really off track. I had imagined being a lot further along in my progress with Tweakz by May 2009. Several variables have really delayed the process…..I remain positive and just focus on the end result.

One big take away from the James Ray event, was his mention of Living In the Outcome. For any of us that follow the “Law of Attraction”, we know that “Thoughts Become Things”. The steps to creating your reality;

Think It – Feel It – Take Action

This makes complete sense to me.   What’s hard for me to swallow, is the part of ACTION.   I definitely take action to achieve my goals and move forward.  However,  I do not splurge and ACT like I already have these things.   Mentally, I envision having attained my goals – yet Physically I do not.

What I mean by not “Acting Physically” is;  spending money I don’t yet have, and living the financial lifestyle of my future today. 

According to James Ray, this is what I should be doing.  I’m a practical person, who doesn’t live beyond her means.  I save when I can, buy generic and look for sales.  The chance of falling into a financial hole holds me back from splurging.

Is this holding  me back  and delaying my progress?  This fear of living in the future.    Should I max out my credit cards and start spending money like a rockstar?  Will this prove that I deserve the life that I want?

The issue has me really perplexed. 

Any insight on the situation would be greatly appreciated.

The Optimist Creed

Are you truly an Optimist?  Find Out.


Promise Yourself

To be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind.

To talk health, happiness, and prosperity to every person you meet.

To make all your friends feel that there is something worthwhile in them.

To look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true.

To think only of the best, to work only for the best and to expect only the best.

To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own.

To forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future.

To wear a cheerful expression at all times and give a smile to every living creature you meet.

To give so much time to improving yourself that you have no time to criticize others.

To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear, and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.

To think well of yourself and to proclaim this fact to the world, not in loud word, but in great deeds.

To live in the faith that the whole world is on your side, so long as you are true to the best that is in you.


Originally published in 1912 in a book titled: “Your Forces and How to Use Them.” The author was Christian D. Larson, a prolific writer and lecturer who believed that people have tremendous latent powers, which could be harnessed for success with the proper attitude.

Make your own A-Team!

I was excited to have dinner last night with a long time friend.  You can tell what friends are good for you by how you feel after being around them.   Some friends bring you down, others bring you up.


Friends that bring you down are toxic, and should be eliminated from your life.


This friend however is very inspiring, supportive and intelligent.  I haven’t seen him in about a year, and divulged my information on Tweakz.  I hold Tweakz close to my heart since its still a young and tender baby.  Kinda like a little babies soft head, it needs to develop more before resisting any kind of impact from criticism.


Happily, he was very responsive and encouraging of my business plan.  How Exciting!


This positive response only further ignites my engine to push forward.  Just like the little engine that could; I think I can…..I think I can……I think I can……   I just keep trucking up that hill!


As for my current progress, I’m still waiting on the revisions to be completed by my CAD guy.  At this point, it’s been 2 weeks and still nothing yet.  I realize that he’s a busy guy, but the lack of attention to my project is really stating to urk me.  I’m paying him good money.   I posted an ad on Craigslist today looking for another CAD designer to complete the final revisions.  I’m sick of waiting.  Sorry, but there are people out there hungry for the business in this economy.


My meeting last night really made me think about how important it is to surround yourself with awesome people.   It’s the difference between success and failure.  After being somewhat fuzzy headed from this waiting process, I now have new energy.  One simple meeting with the right person has given me the charge I need.  


I continue to grow a following on Twitter & Facebook.  My online friends provide me a wealth of information and are invaluable.


Imagine what you could do with an entire A-Team of people on your side?


Infinite Possibilities 😉
