Dating: Is It All About You?

Here's a funny video to get us started on this topic:

Is it all about you?

I hope not.

I've always felt that good dating ought to be a mix. But, let's face it, if you're trying to ATTRACT someone, it might be more about THEM than it is YOU. If you're focused so much on how you look, what you're going to say, what you're going to do, you might miss out on the fact that there's a beautiful person over there, dying to share some of their own joy with you.

I made this mistake myself on a date probably more than once. You know, where you start blabbing about stuff you're doing, then ten minutes later stop talking and realize they're thinking "oh my God, this person is a selfish A@@!" Have you done that? Now, here's the trick - if you're trying to be funny, you have to say SOMETHING. I've also heard nightmare stories from women who say "the guy looked okay, he seemed nice on the phone, but in person, he just SAT THERE and LET ME DO ALL THE TALKING! It was SO AWKWARD!" I've felt that way about a couple of women, but then again, I'm pretty good at getting people to draw out what they're into after being a life coach for such a long time.

The point I'm trying to make is this: dating (and relationships) are a two way street, not a highway and a dirt road. In other words, there ought to be mutual sharing. If one person is dominating, the other ought to speak up and pipe in.

Remember, dating isn't all about you. It also isn't all about them, either.

Don't let people dominate the conversation too much. A little, okay, but too much you might end up feeling resentment down the road that can contribute to a break up. Instead, share your part, then ask them. Listen intently when they answer. Share together. That's what relating is all about! It doesn't have to be EQUAL. Some people are extroverted, others introverted. Keep in mind this MIGHT be why you're attracted to them. They help fill in the gap of what you keep quiet about. Just try to make sure that when you've got something to say that they listen, too.

Dating can be fun, when both parties are learning and sharing about each other's lives. So, let's share with our partners and experience a deeper and more meaningful relationship.

Living Life My Way

The first part of living our life purpose is to know what we want to do with our own lives.

After we've figured that out, we sometimes are left asking the question, "Now what?"

Can you relate?

Well, I think this problem has to do with living life on our terms; or, living life my way. That's the song Frank Sinatra used to sing, My Way. For example, you may have already decided the next step for your life. You know what actions you will take. You know what you need to do to be successful. And at least you have a grip on the daily things you feel will best take you there.

Then, the voice of a friend, a parent, an authority figure, or even a random stranger enters the picture and says the dreaded: "You should do this...(fill in the blank)"

Do you let this comment confuse you? It is hard when people who we've trusted to raise us, protect us, have fun with us, or even help us make money in the past offer advice counter to that which we believe best for our own life.

If we're going to be successful in living our own purpose, then we need to listen to OUR voice. We need to listen to the voice of SPIRIT (God) in our life. We need to listen to nature. But listening to these other people is actually to live according to THEIR AGENDA for us. Perhaps you owe someone money. Or, someone else struggles to imagine the risks you take. Or, they just don't understand what you're trying to do.

In any event, I encourage you to put your full resources into your life purpose. Do not go about this bashfully. Do the things you must do to earn money to provide for your family. And, if that is this new purpose, you've got to figure out how to bring in money as quickly as possible, or risk putting the ones you love in jeopardy. I don't recommend doing that. It is best to moonlight until you have enough money saved up to launch, or until the second business is proving it can sustain more than the first. Otherwise, you may have to downsize expenses to make sure you can make ends meet. Whatever the case, do whatever you have to do to take care of business.

In the case of many people, they choose a path and then struggle to figure out ways to earn money. Look at the people who are most successful in this business you are entering. Examine how they succeed. Copy those things that help them succeed. Then be different in the ways you must to provide your own unique services.

Focus on living life YOUR WAY. In career, hobby, relationships, and family, the actions we take in how we manage our daily affairs determine much of our success. So set up your schedule and take action in such a way to create immense success in your endeavor(s). Don't be your own worst enemy; instead, be your own best ally. Then, ally others to your cause!

Living life my way is an extraordinary feeling. It is much more satisfying than living life for others, or according to the agenda of others. So, do it YOUR WAY. And enjoy the journey!

Love The Secret - But Unsure How?

If you're like me, you might be sick of hearing all about the movie "The Secret" but never learning HOW to do any of the manifesting they talk about.

Bla, bla, bla! Talk, talk, talk! RIGHT?

Okay, but show me the MONEY! I know, I'm an eager-beaver.
But tell me, honestly, are you any different?

Here's some good news: Tom Murasso, one of the better kept secrets in the personal development (self-help) field, recently created a new online audio course entitled, "Art of Conscious Creation" which will knock your socks off.

Seriously, there's got to be some area you'd love to sit down with a life coach and talk about - love, money, health, success - on YOUR schedule, right?

What I like about Tom's course is that it is DIFFERENT! People are paying up to $1,500 to attend this course in person. I know, I know, every guru on the block does *that*!

Maybe, but Tom's course includes 5 professionally recorded audios, course worksheets, a copy of his how-to guidebook to the LOA, "Born to Manifest" and...

...a Freeeee coaching session with Tom!

And, you'll find he's a mix of spirituality blended with love, compassion, and humor. What matters most to me is Tom's a "real guy" and also why I'm comfortable recommending his audio workshop. Plus, I personally love audio workshops, because they can be something I listen to casually while staring at the ocean, or intent with a notepad in hand. It's my choice.

The best part? All of that is only $97.00. That's only 27 cents a day if you look at it as something you can listen to over and over again the next year to really get a bang for your bank! The online audio workshop is for folks who want to finally understand EXACTLY how to utilize the Law of Attraction to their benefit and manifest more and more 'good' in their lives... and less stuff they don't want!

It's for people already working with the Law, and having limited success.

It's for those who totally get the LOA, yet have no success at all!

It's a "Do This – Then That" kind of workshop/course!

So, please take a look. I'm thoroughly convinced THIS is the secret to the Secret!

You were BORN TO MANIFEST. It is so simple to do it now! Change your life!
