What borrowed wisdom is worth thinking about?

“I no longer have patience for certain things, not because I’ve become arrogant, but simply because I reached a point in my life where I do not want to waste more time with what displeases me or hurts me. I have no patience for cynicism, excessive criticism and demands of any nature. I lost the will to please those who do not like me, to love those who do not love me and to smile at those who do not want to smile at me. I no longer spend a single minute on those who lie or want to manipulate. I decided not to coexist anymore with pretense, hypocrisy, dishonesty and cheap praise. I do not tolerate selective erudition nor academic arrogance. I do not adjust either to popular gossiping. I hate conflict and comparisons. I believe in a world of opposites and that’s why I avoid people with rigid and inflexible personalities. In friendship I dislike the lack of loyalty and betrayal. I do not get along with those who do not know how to give a compliment or a word of encouragement. Exaggerations bore me and I have difficulty accepting those who do not like animals. And on top of everything I have no patience for anyone who does not deserve my patience.”

- Meryl Streep

What’s the bottom line?

Are you going to be EXTRAOrdinary in 2015?

Or just get by. Does ordinary sound easier? Or is there something about being extraordinary that calls to you? You may not be ready to give it your all…but, if you are….there are several opportunities in this newsletter this month that might be a fit for your needs!

My personal life has been evolving to one of absolute ease and joy. It didn’t happen overnight and I am still expanding my understanding of how it works and helping my clients do the same. A big "Ah ha" for me is in letting go of the notions that hard work = success, that self-discipline = results and it takes lots of hard work to have a life and a thriving business. These old school way of doing things can produce results some times but the cost is so high!

What To Do Instead

This year, start believing in yourself more… no excuses about the past or what you can or can’t do.

Know you ARE enough! Know that who you really are is just what the world needs. You are unique. Stop trying to mold yourself to other’s expectations. You possess right now everything you need to live the life of your dreams. Stop seeing flaws. Stop the negative self-talk. Stop blaming anyone or anything else.

Start giving yourself permission to be you and stop caring about who doesn’t like it. You will never please anyone, so isn’t it time to please yourself?

Be true to yourself and that alignment with universal laws will bring you amazing power and opportunities that could be missed if you have too much attachment to thinking you know exactly what you need to do. Watch for what shows up, have fun, be curious, try some different ways of doing things and ride the momentum to your goals.

nd, mostly, don’t worry so much about what you should be doing, but pay attention to when you are feeling great in the moment and do more of that! You are a human being… not a human doing!

Bottom Line about Creating The Most Awesome Year Ever in 2015

Now is the time to create your awesome vision for 2015.

You have lots of options:

  • Create a vision board and focus a few minutes on it each day
  • Find a partner and hold each other accountable for expanding what IS working regularly
  • Creating self-care options to give you the health, focus & energy to ROCK!!!
  • Or…what way do you know would work for you?

The Awesome Year Plan

If you’d like a template and guide to do this completely and effectively, yet simply and compellingly, I have revamped my Awesome Year Plan to help you do that!

The cost is the same ($15 for a single version or only $7 each if you order 5 or more). It’s a fillable PDF, so you can keep it on your smartphone or computer, or you can print it out and have the hardcopy to create on.

Decide today to BE EXTRAORDINARY in 2015. It is up to YOU!!!!

What’s free this month? Two, not just one!!!!!

The One Thing Worksheet: Why Should I Simplfy?

You could make complicated lists and identify dozens of action items to reach your goals in 2015. Or, you could become very focused on the few items and actions that carry the most leverage toward your vision.

My freebie this month focuses on 3 questions:

  1. What 1 Thing if you did it regularly would most impact your quality of life?
  2. What 1 Thing if you stopped doing it would most impact your quality of life?
  3. What is causing you the most grief and by when will you handle it?

Answering those questions and then keeping connected to them over the next year will guide you to take the actions that will manifest your goals!

Simple, huh? Grab your freebie right over here.



And… I thought this was just so cool, I wanted you to see it:

A site that will give you information about any date — share with people on their birthdays, anniversaries or just for the heck of it!!! Check it out!

Joeann’s Tips on being more focused and full of joy

Focusing On What You Are Intending

As we do business planning, we often get so sucked into what we don’t have yet and what we want to change…we get stuck there, instead of having that show us contrast so we have more clarity on what we DO want.

So, this month, here is your challenge:

Right now, think about Dec. 2015. You have accomplished everything you wanted and more!

  • How are you feeling?
  • What are the emotions you have?
  • What are the themes running through your mind?

Now… make as long a list as you can about those questions and anything else that you know will be present in your thinking, having accomplished that (pride in yourself, excitement in a new level of accomplishment, joy about the vacation you will take as a result, etc.)

Long list, OK?

Put this list next to your bed and each morning when you first wake up, read it to yourself before you start your day. Do this all month long and then notice any changes in your Joy and Ability to Focus!

What’s going on with Joeann?

Living a Great Life!
November is one of my favorite months because of the gratitude theme! I know that Law of Attractions says “Like Attracts Like” and in focusing on all our blessings…we attract more! I intend to really focus each day, several times a day on the wonderful goodies my life brings every day. From my home, family and clients (and you reading this) to the freedoms we have in this country and opportunities to be as extraordinary as we’ll allow ourselves to be! I hope today you find lots worth celebrating in your world as well!!

What Does Abraham-Hicks Have to Do with it?
I’ve been sharing with you some Abraham quotes over the past few months and our cruise included 6 amazing sessions with Esther Hicks and her interpretation of Abraham’s teachings on Law of Attraction. They have made a tremendous difference in my feeling of relaxation and perfection.

I am very excited that Esther is coming to Phoenix on December 6 to do a workshop.
Registration is still open if you are nearby and want to go! I’ll see you there if you do go!
