The more we succeed at achieving our goals, the more we believe we can!
So, let’s have some FUN along the way!
I’d like to suggest that you set some “fun” goals every morning.
Goals that are simple AND easy and will help you have a great day.
Here are some ideas to get you started –
“What if today I made 3 people smile?”
“What if today I gave 2 sincere compliments?”
“What if today I let someone ahead of me in traffic?”
“What if today I set 3 alarms on my phone to remind me to take a moment and just breathe deeply?”
“What if today I played (and sang) my favorite song on the way to work?”
“What if today I met a friend for coffee?”
Why not take a moment to do something simple – something that you loved doing as a child. Just for the fun of it.
Let the child in you come out and play!
The possibilities are endless….
You can pet your cat or dog an extra 5 minutes, play with your kids a bit longer, watch a funny movie…….
Drop a token in that video game, just for the fun of it!
Try this and see how much fun you can have in a “regular” day!
Please share your favorite “FUN GOALS” below – you may just have that “spark” that someone needs to create their own!
I truly love sharing what I learn with you. Watching someone have an "a-ha" moment is one of the best things in life for me.
Because I am a consummate "student" - when I find something new and interesting, I really dig deep. I study hard and then I use what I've learned to help others. (Yeah, I have gathered together quite a toolbox!)
I truly do believe in the power of "Jump Starts" and the ability everyone has to "get un-stuck." If I can do it, anyone can!

I believe that every human is unique and valuable,
even if they aren't able to recognize it themselves.
I believe each and every one has the power to create a great life
once they recognize -and accept- their value.
Even as a child I've been able to help people change the way they see themselves - helping them move from a "victim" to an "owner" mindset. I help them to gain self-confidence and recognize their strengths. I've discovered that it's only when you do that, can you "get un-stuck" and "Jump Start" your life.
What drives me is helping others to succeed, to be a support system while they are taking steps toward their dream, and to watch them celebrate their victories.
The Biggest Lesson I've learned is the power of your mind. It truly does create and destroy.
It was quite a shock when I realized the power that my mindset played in every part of my life - good and bad. Discovery wasn't enough though, it still took me decades to harness this power, learn to control it, and develop a system to help others master this in a fraction of the time it took me.
Taking responsibility - even for how others treated me - was one of the hardest adjustments I had to make. To move from Victim to Owner mindset was not only difficult, it was, at times, scary.
It is a move that I am thrilled to have taken. It changed my life and it can change yours.
