What Are You Looking For?
What Are You Looking For? Inspiration Of The Day “What we see depends mainly on what we look for.” John Lubbock British statesman born in 1834 So Now What? You experience this when you’re thinking about a certain kind of car. It starts showing up in your life and you see that car everywhere. Imagine what would happen if you wanted to look for love, joy, beauty and kindness? Do you think you would experience the same kind of response and see love, joy, beauty and kindness show up in your life all the time? Only one way to find out! Stay Amazing!!!

What A Fool Can Do
What A Fool Can Do Inspiration Of The Day “Any fool can criticize, condemn and complain but it takes character and self control to be understanding and forgiving.” Dale Carnegie Early leader of the personal development movement and author of many best selling books including How to Win Friends & Influence People. So Now What? And isn’t that what we all want in our lives, understanding and forgiveness? But why is that so hard? Is it because we see so little of it in our lives and in the world? Is it so easy to criticize, condemn and complain because that is the behavior that has been modeled for us so often that it has now become an emotional habit? I’m going to guess that there are not a lot of people out there who actually like being criticize, condemn and complained to. Of course the opposite of understanding is misunderstanding. Does the ability to criticize, condemn and complain come from judging things we don’t comprehend? I like that one of the synonyms for “forgive” is “let it go.” Would being able to stop blaming and clear any anger toward another person or situation help bring about more love and happiness in your life? So then how do we develop the character and create the self-control to cultivate understanding and forgiveness in our lives? I’d say the best place to start would be with yourself. Take a little bit of time everyday to look at the things you might be blaming yourself for and let it go. And then take a few minutes to go inside and get to know yourself. That might include some painful things and some hurt. What a great time to give yourself some love and encouragement, just like you would a good friend or to your child. Do this and your world will become a brighter, happier place. Stay Amazing!!!

The Real Definition of Success
The Real Definition of Success Inspiration Of The Day “Success means having the courage, the determination, and the will to become the person you believe you were meant to be.” George Sheehan Cardiologist, runner and author of How To Feel Great 24 Hours A Day. So Now What? Wow! That’s a pretty kick ass quote. To many of us success means financial freedom, lots of applause and rooms full of awards and trophies. Success is being brave enough to choose to be the person you believe you need to be and then being persistent enough to get through the hard times. Success is believing in yourself and knowing you’re doing what you are suppose to be doing and not falling into the trap of doing what you think is appropriate or what others think you should do. However, this doesn’t mean that bags of money are going to drop from heaven. It does mean you’ll live as the person you were meant to be…inspired and alive, full of energy and love, excited about the day. Being able to get to the end of your life and say, “that was extraordinary!” Stay Amazing!!!

Where To Start
Where To Start… Inspiration Of The Day “The ideals which have lighted my way, and time after time have given me new courage to face life cheerfully, have been Kindness, Beauty, and Truth.” Albert Einstein So Now What? How would your day go if you only looked for kindness, beauty and truth? How would your life be if you gave kindness, beauty and truth on a consistent basis? Would people respond and react to you differently? Would the world seem a little brighter? Imagine how you would feel after giving and receiving kindness all day long? If you are struggling with anger, depression or just general grumpiness would looking for and putting out into the world some beauty change the emotional chemistry in your head so that some happiness and joy might be produced? By standing in the truth of who you are would you need to justify anything about yourself? Would that make your relationships easier? There are a lot of questions in this Mojo Wisdom because I can’t tell you how much kindness and beauty and truth will truly alter your life. You are going to have to find out for yourself. If you’re not sure where to start then start here…be kind to yourself. If that is not easy for you then that is the perfect place to start. Be kind to yourself. That means loving yourself and it might mean you need to forgive yourself. Do you want a better life? A life filled with happiness and love? Then start by being kind to yourself and see how that changes your world because people take their cues on how to treat you from you. If you are kind to yourself then they know you are deserving of kindness and you’ll attract it to you. I’m not saying your life will be all unicorns and rainbows all the time but as the great Albert Einstein said above the ideals of kindness, beauty and truth will light your way and give you the courage to face life cheerfully. And that sounds pretty good to me. Stay Amazing!!!

Are You Worthy Or Not?
Are You Worthy Or Not? Inspiration Of The Day “Accepting our worthiness is a challenge for many of us and one we have been working on for a long time. One of the reasons we never seem to master it is because we’re working too hard at it. "You can never work hard enough to prove yourself worthy because you already are worthy.” Cyndi Dale Author of The Subtle Body: An Encyclopedia of Your Energetic Anatomy. So Now What? Here is the big secret about worthiness. You can’t earn it, work for it, have it given to you, or buy it. You are not required to do anything. And that is because you already are worthy. There is nothing you need to do. It’s as if you’re sitting in a bright yellow Mustang convertible wishing you were sitting in a bright yellow Mustang convertible. Awareness is the key not worthiness. Read all the books you want to on worthiness, go to all the workshops, go talk to a therapist all you want, you are worthy right now because you are that amazing and worthwhile. You just need to remove your blinders. Just because your window is dirty doesn’t mean the beauty view isn’t there. You already are worthy. Therefore, you can’t earn or work for worthiness. You must stop hoping that one day you will be worthy of love and you must start knowing and experiencing your worthiness. You have to accept that you already have it in your possession. If a dear, close friend came to you and said that they weren’t worthy of love what would you say? Or maybe your child, husband or wife, or a close family member? You’d talk to them until they understood without a doubt that they were worthy. Am I right? And the next day if their disbelief and skepticism about their worthiness came back you’d spend more time talking with them and working through their issues. Right? Well, let me point out that if they are worthy just because they are, then that means you are worthy just because you are. However, you may come up with excuses as to why you are not. But guess what? Just as you wouldn’t let your friend or family member get away with excuses you can’t either. To uncover the worthiness and love you are already in possession of you need to forgive yourself. You need to learn to love yourself. This is your work. You are good and wonderful already. I see it and everyone else sees it too. Now it’s your turn. Stay Amazing!!!

But What If You Hate Yourself?
But What If You Hate Yourself? Inspiration Of The Day “Love life, engage in it, give it all you've got. "Love it with a passion, because life truly does give back, many times over, what you put into it.” Maya Angelou Author of I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings. So Now What? This makes a lot of sense. But in order to love life wouldn’t you need to start by loving yourself first? How is the love for life, and therefore other people, able to shine if you are “engaged” in disappointment, frustration and anger with yourself? How is love suppose to come back many times over if you hate yourself? You have a beautiful view out your window but the glass is covered in dirt and mud. Mind you this view is always there. This exquisite beauty will remain whether you want to clean the window or not. It’s there…waiting. It’s you move. You are in charge and while you may feel you have a right to blame your parents, school, religion, the government, society – it’s really your responsibility to do something about it. No one and I mean no one is going to clean your window for you. There are a lot of guides, teachers, books, and workshops on how to clean but they can’t do it for you. Accountability for your life lies with you. So does living life with passion, giving it all you got sound good to you? Do you understand that when you love life with a passion it truly does give back? There is lots of scientific evidence which states that we are all interconnected at the zero point field – the quantum energy that underlies, harmonizes, and attaches everyone to everybody and everything, the secret force of nature. If this is true, then you must be sending the disappointment, frustration, anger and hatred you have with yourself out into the field and therefore to other people. And life truly does give back. Love starts with you. You need to do the work to get to a place where you honestly and genuinely love yourself. Then let that absolute love permeate and inspire the field. Then watch what comes back… Stay Amazing!!!

The Problem With Happiness
The Problem With Happiness Inspiration Of The Day “Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, or worn. It is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace and gratitude.” Denis Waitley Author of Psychology of Success: Developing Your Self-esteem So Now What? As physical beings a lot of us have a tendency to look for physical means in order to be happy. This isn’t such an odd idea as there seems to be many things in the physical world that make us happy. Falling in love, receiving a cool gift, giving a cool gift, eating at your favorite restaurant, getting a great job, getting a raise, and on and on. Yet we’ve all experienced the happiness-as-a-result-of-outside-circumstances fade and disappear. Then like happiness addicts we go in search of our next joyous fix. Maybe those temporary feelings of joy weren’t really happiness. Maybe those feelings are just temporary emotions our minds have delveloped over thousands and thousands of years to help the human species survive and carry on in a life that can be very difficult at times. So how does one attain real happiness? The same way gurus, master trainers, guides, coaches, and shamans have been teaching for years…you must find happiness not in the outside physical world but by going inside. As Denis Waitley said above: It is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace and gratitude. Not easy to do when you’re surrounded by idiots, jerks and fools at work, on the highway, at parties and dare I say at family reunions. Not easy when you have health problems, money issues, relationship troubles, and days filled with frustration, anger and depression. So, again, how does one attain real happiness? Like any skill (and yes happiness is a skill) you have to work at it and train for it. The same training that was going on thousands of years ago to create peace and happiness within still works today. Meditation, feelings of love toward yourself (!) and others, feelings of gratitude for the small things and the big. You also have to catch yourself in the moment of anger and depression so that you can turn it around, not unlike catching yourself reaching into the cookie jar when you want to loose weight. Like I’ve said before this is work. But how badly do you want to create true happiness in your life? It is possible to retrain your brain at any age. Just be sure and take some time to cultivate happiness within everyday. T

Angel On The Bridge
Angel On The Bridge Inspiration of the Day "If you think you're too small to have an impact, try going to bed with a mosquito in the room." Anita Roddick Human Rights Activist, Environmental Campaigner, Founder of The Body Shop So Now What? Mother Teresa changed the world. Steve Jobs and Steve Wosniak of Apple Computers changed the world, Rosa Parks, Oprah Winfrey, Jesus, the Buddha, they all changed the world even though they were only one person. I want to read to you a short story by Julie Tallard Johnson that is a perfect illustration of how one person can change somebodies world. She wrote: Perhaps you know the story of the girl who walked three miles, on a busy street, to kill herself by jumping off a bridge. She looked into the faces of dozens of strangers as she walked slowly to the bridge. People either looked away or stared back at her. For three miles no one said hello or inquired about the stress and pain on her face. As she approached the bridge, where only a month earlier a friend of hers had jumped to his death, she saw the face of a man smiling at her. He was just an ordinary man, carrying a briefcase in one hand and walking fast somewhere. But he slowed down enough to give her a big smile of recognition. She had to smile back, even though he was a stranger. In her journal later that day she wrote, “An angel disguised as a man smiled at me today, and I decided if God was going to bother to send me an angel I could hang on.” One idea, one action can impact millions if not billions of people. Start with the next person you see today and do something to change their world, even if it’s just to give someone a smile or say “I Love You.” Your Awesome!!!

What Are You Training For Everyday?
What Are You Training For Everyday? Inspiration of the Day "That which we persist in doing becomes easier, not that the task itself has become easier, but that our ability to perform it has improved." Ralph Waldo Emerson author and poet, 1803 - 1882 The Essential Writings So Now What? So what are you training for everyday in order that it may become easier? Anger, sadness, frustration, disappointment, anxiety or love, happiness, forgivness, joy, and gratitude? It’s up to you…it’s totally up to you. Stay Amazing!!!

Dreamers Of The World Unite
Dreamers Of The World Unite Inspiration Of The Day “The world lies in the hands of those that have the courage to dream and who take the risk of living out their dreams, each according to his or her own talent.” Paulo Coelho Author of The Alchemist and many other life altering novels. So Now What? You’re reading this email because someone had a dream. The books that inspire you the most are in print because somebody had a dream. You’re able to listen to your favorite music because someone had a dream. You keep returning to your favorite restaurant and ordering your favorite dish because someone had a dream. The medicine that heals you, the robots on Mars, the fancy oven that cooks your food, the tires that roll you down the road, all the various things that touch your life are there because someone, somewhere, at some point woke up and said, “wouldn’t it be great if…” and then acted upon that dream. But make no mistake, manifesting that dream into physical form usually came with great opposition. People laughed, scoffed, and ridiculed. They said it couldn’t be done and that the dreamer was a fool. And maybe it didn’t work for the 1st, 2nd or 573rd time. But the true dreamer preservers. Yes, it does take risk but the dreamers have no choice. Read any biography of any great world changer and it is rife with trial and tribulation, there is always much wailing and gnashing of teeth. They had to traverse great mountains in order to see their dreams become reality. You have been granted a talent. I don’t know what it is and maybe even at this point in your life you don’t know what it is either. But it is there. Whether you’re 20, 40 or 80, age matters not, your dream is important. Maybe your dream is so significant to the human race that you needed decades of life-training and knowledge in order to refine your dream and create its beauty. Don’t give up on yourself or your dream. It’s not over yet. So how do you find your dream, your passion? You’ve been given some clues in the form of your “likes” and “dislikes.” What are some of the activities that really light up your life? That’s a great starting point. If you’re really not sure about your passions and dreams, or you want to go deeper, I highly recommend Janet Bray Attwood and Chris Attwood’s The Passion Test: The Effortless Path To Discovering Your Life Purpose. Another great resource comes from Oprah and her 4-Step Guide

The Art of Fear and Failure
The Art of Fear and Failure Inspiration of the Day "The worst thing one can do is not to try, to be aware of what one wants and not give in to it, to spend years in silent hurt wondering if something could have materialized - and never knowing." David Viscott author of Emotional Resilience So Now What? To know what you want and do nothing to achieve it? That is a life unlived. But life can be scary especially when reaching for your dreams. What if you fail? Many if not most people are afraid of failing. And the fear is real. Everyone has it, even the successful. But it's not fear that is the problem. It's how you handle fear. It's how you handle losing. Robert Kiyosaki, author of Rich Dad Poor Dad, teaches this: The primary difference between a rich person and a poor person is how they handle that fear. Successful people fail. They fail all the time. But to them it’s not failure. It’s just one more step to the top of the mountain. I’ve told this story before but it bares repeating: Jack Canfield and Mark Victor Hanson were rejected over 140 times by publishers who thought their book Chicken Soup For The Soul wouldn’t sell. Once they finally found an almost bankrupt publisher to put the book out it took another 18 months before it started to sell. Now they’ve sold over 500 million books (an author, depending on the deal, gets around $1 - $2 a book). Now what if they labeled themselves and their project a failure at rejection number 39, or rejection 82, or 139? What if they labeled themselves and their project a failure after 6 months of marketing and no sales, or after 12 months, or 16 months? What if they let fear of more rejection take them out? Again, 500 million books sold and an author, depending on the deal, gets around $1 - $2 a book. A person’s most courageous act is to embrace failure! Through failure you will learn the most valuable lesson about yourself. And do it often enough – yes fail often enough - you will succeed. Stay Amazing!!!

Be Miserable Or…
Be Miserable Or... Inspiration Of The Day "Be miserable. Or motivate yourself. Whatever has to be done, it's always your choice. " Wayne Dyer Internationally renowned author and speaker in the field of self-development. He's the author of over 30 books including the New York Times bestseller 10 Secrets for Success and Inner Peace So Now What? This is a hard concept to digest. If you buy into the notion that it is always your choice then it’s rather defeating to wallow in blame, guilt, resentment, anger and complaining. How could these emotions even remotely be essential to living a wonderful life? I won’t call them bad or negative emotions but I will call them unhelpful. Not only are they counterproductive for your life but they hurt. Hurt emotionally yes but these emotions also damage your progress toward the life of your dreams. If being miserable is your choice then why would you ever willingly feel that way for long periods of time? The answer can be found in two places. Feeling miserable may help you prove to yourself that you truly are unworthy. If you were really worthy of love and happiness you wouldn’t feel miserable would you? Though you may feel sad and despairing, these emotions bring you comfort. If you believe that you don’t deserve happiness then feeling miserable would logically have to be the way you should feel. Your brain and body are in alignment with these emotions and there is a certain sense of relaxed appropriateness to the way you feel. Secondly, you may also have trained yourself to feel miserable. Just like learning to drive a car or learning to walk has become an automatic habit for you so can you make automatic habits of your emotions. It’s very simple to do. Just like learning to walk or play the piano, you just have to practice over and over and over again. Practice feeling miserable, angry, guilty and resentful and it will become easier and easier to feel those emotions until they get processed by your subconscious mind and they become automatic. So if you feel miserable on a regular basis how do you turn it around? You use the same method to create happiness as you did to create misery. You practice, practice, practice. Here’s your work: you will need to find things and/or people that make you happy, that bring you feelings of love. And with these people and things you will create a “treasure chest of awesomeness.” You will then spend time everyday doing something f

What Is It About Yourself That Frustrates You?
What Is It About Yourself That Frustrates You? Inspiration Of The Day "You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one." Henry David Thoreau American author, poet, naturalist and philosopher who’s best known book is Walden. So Now What? I may be going out on a limb here but I’m guessing that the reason you might be wishing to be like someone else is because you don’t like the way you are. Dare I say, you don’t love yourself? Ok, that wasn’t that hard to figure out. But if there are aspects of yourself, of your personality, of your character, of your being that disappoint you, that anger you, that frustrate you then you are going to have to do something about it. This is where the hammer and forge come in. What is it about yourself that frustrates you? Now are you going to do something about it or just stay frustrated? What area do you need to work on, health, relationships, communication, getting rid of negative thoughts, general crappy outlook on life? A caterpillar and a butterfly are vastly different creatures yet they share the same DNA. They are the same being. You can affect this kind of metaphorical transformation in your life. To start the work of transformation what will you need? Books, workshops, mastermind group, a coach? Best place to start is with pen and paper. Just write and see what comes up. Write a description of who you want to be. Then place one foot in front of the other. Don’t wait. Do it now. Remember, it’s your life; it’s your responsibility. You can do this. I believe in you.

The Answer Is Pointless If We Don’t Know The Question
The Answer Is Pointless If We Don't Know The Question Inspiration of the Day "Sell your cleverness and buy bewilderment." Rumi 13th Century Sufi Poet So Now What? You may have read Douglas Adams' Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy books. In the first novel, a group of hyper-intelligent pan-dimensional beings demand to learn the Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, The Universe, and Everything from the supercomputer, Deep Thought, specially built for this purpose. It takes Deep Thought 7½ million years to compute and check the answer, which turns out to be 42. Deep Thought points out that the answer seems meaningless because the beings who instructed it never actually knew what the Question was. Maybe before we look for any more answers we should make sure we really know what the questions are. Stay Amazing!!!

Live Backwards Inspiration Of The Day "Live today the way you want to be remembered tomorrow." Dillon Burroughs So Now What? There’s an old saying: “If you want to know how to live your life, think about what you’d like people to say about you after you die and live backwards.” Let me give you an example. Alfred Nobel invented dynamite in 1867. He did so because he thought his invention would actually end warfare. He wrote that, “The day when two army corps can annihilate each other in one second, all civilized nations, it is to be hoped, will recoil from war and discharge their troops.” His ideas were not unlike the massive military build up during the Cold War between The Soviet Union and the United States from the 1960’s to 1980’s - preemptive deterrence. However, life has a way of throwing curve balls, and in 1888, when Alfred's brother Ludvig died, a French newspaper mistakenly ran an obituary for Alfred, in which they called him “the merchant of death.” Alfred was so horrified by that label that he decided to change his destiny. After he died, he left 94% of his wealth to form a foundation. This foundation established 5 honors with annual awards presented to people who have produced the greatest benefit for humanity. And so was the start of the yearly honors in physics, chemistry, medicine, literature, and most famously, the Nobel Peace Prize. Alfred Nobel got a rare opportunity to view how he would be remembered after he was gone. And he didn’t like what he saw. So he decided to change it. So can you. It’s not too late. What will friends, family, work colleagues, clients, customers, and strangers say about you after you’re gone? If you don’t like what you come up with then start the process of changing it today. You can do this. I believe in you.

Rules of Happiness
Rules of Happiness Inspiration of the Day "Happiness arrives not in the absence of problems but in the absence of rules about when you can feel it." Mike Dooley author of Infinite Possibilities So Now What? This one of the most brilliant pieces of advice I've ever read. (Go Mike Dooley - look him up.) Are your happiness rules based on when other people think or believe you should and can be happy? Are your happiness rules based on when YOU think or believe you should and can be happy?? And what exactly are your happiness rules??? I hear a lot of debate about updating the rules in professional baseball or updating the laws that govern us. But what about updating the laws and rules you have about when, where and why you can happy???? Look into your happiness rules - they may be quite antiquated. Stay Amazing!!!

Who Owes You?
Who Owes You? Inspiration Of The Day "A great burden was lifted from my shoulders the day I realized that no one owes me anything." Harry Browne Author, Investment Analyst and Politician So Now What? Maybe you feel ripped off by life because of a crappy childhood, lost marriage, bad job, lack of financial success. Your parents owe you, your spouse owes you, your kids owe you, your boss owes you, your customers owe you. Believing somebody owes you something can breed resentment. I looked “resentment” up in the dictionary. Some synonyms for “resentment” include: hate, anger, bitterness, annoyance, grudge, fury, rage, irritation, wrath, and hurt. Some antonyms for “resentment” include: happiness, joy, calm, affection, comfort, cheer, kindness and love. It’s your choice. And now maybe Harry Browne’s quote makes even more sense: "A great burden was lifted from my shoulders the day I realized that no one owes me anything." Stay Amazing!!!

You Are In Charge
You Are In Charge Inspiration Of The Day | Double Header "We cannot change our past. We can not change the fact that people act in a certain way. We can not change the inevitable. "The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude. "I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% of how I react to it. And so it is with you... we are in charge of our attitudes." Charles Swindoll Author, educator, and radio preacher "A man will be imprisoned in a room with a door that is unlocked and opens inwards as long as it does not occur to him to pull rather than push. " Ludwig Wittgenstein Philosopher who taught at the University of Cambridge So Now What? I like these two quotes together because they ask a simple question: What if it really was that easy? What if you really could turn your life around just by pulling rather than pushing? OK, that’s a rather weak way of describing how to fix life’s problems but what if instead of resisting whatever it is that’s going on you use the most powerful tool in your toolbox to deal with it - your way of thinking and feeling about yourself and the world, your attitude. What if instead of pushing against the past or your situation in the present you use your energy to create an inner state of happiness and peace? Change your inner world and let your outer world conform to the new You. Will that take some practice, energy, awareness and some new skills on your part? Yes it will. But what if it works? How would your life be different if you could not just survive through life but use the circumstances, situations and challenges in your life to transform and thrive? I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. It’s your life, it’s your responsibility. Start looking for the tools you will need to create this transformation. Books, workshops, get a coach, start a mastermind group. Whatever it takes. Stay Amazing!!!

Failure Does Not Equal Defeat
Failure Does Not Equal Defeat Inspiration Of The Day "I've missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. 26 times I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. "I've failed over and over and over again in my life. "And that is why I succeed." Michael Jordan Considered one of the greatest basketball players and athletes of all time. So Now What? I heard Robert Kiyosaki, author of Rich Dad Poor Dad and real estate tycoon, tell the story of how he started out as a failed copy machine salesman. He was really, really bad at it. The worst sales person in the company. In fact, he was so bad if he didn’t turn it around, and fast, he was going to be fired. He called his Rich Dad for advice and received some startling news. His Rich Dad told him he needed to increase his “failure rate.” Now that advice seems rather counter productive but his Rich Dad knew that success is built by learning from failure. So instead of making 5 cold calls a day, Robert started making 20. He increased his fail rate and in doing so he started seeing success. Soon he became the leading sales person in the company. He learned by doing. And he learned by making mistakes. He failed his way to the top. A lot of us (myself included) have a big desire to avoid failing at all cost. And if we do fail once or twice we believe it’s a signal to give up and move on to the next project or goal. But failure does not equal defeat. If might feel that way but it’s not a signal from the Universe that you’re finished. It only means you’re missing some knowledge and information you need to become a success. You know that clapper-board they use when making movies to index all the different takes of a certain scene. Take 1, take 2, take 3. When making a movie all sorts of things go wrong during a take: the lighting isn’t right, the wind messes up the actors hair, planes fly over, the microphones stop working, somebody sneezes, the actors forget their lines. If a director gave up, thinking the film was a failure, the first time something went wrong during a take we’d have no movie industry. It’s just a missed take. Not a mistake. A missed take. And they do the scene again until they get it right. Success requires practice and training in the field you’re trying to master. The only way to fail is by giving up and walking away from your goal. Seek out the training you need to make it to the top, whether from book
