I Blew It…Again!!

I make mistakes,,,,
I make a lot of mistakes….
I may well make more mistakes than anyone I know…
In fact in a discussion with a friend and Creator’s Code Team member we were discussing my willingness to make mistakes and after talking awhile he said something like this “I want to give you a compliment, you are totally the most successful failure I know!” and we both burst out laughing and I responded with a heart felt thank you.
I am USUALLY quite fine with my mistakes, I GENERALLY do not get to worked up about my mistakes.
But not this time.
Why?
Because I got attached, I wanted to be right, I KNEW IN MY BONES it could work and damn it I was going to prove it!
Does this sound vaguely familiar to you?
Maybe it can work, maybe it just needs tweaking and adjusting but the most important thing is the honest and truthful assessment that AS IT IS, it is not working right now.
Let me give you a few details and this will make more sense.
One of the Creations that I have been MOST PROUD of in my life is the business model I designed a couple of years ago for Creation Circle Leaders.  Which in short is a way for coaches  to step up to a group coaching model using The Creator’s Code content and business systems and the KEY IDEA was that Creation Circle Leaders and Creation Circle Members who get fundamentally free seats into “The Gift” would give their free tickets away, generate referrals and fill The Gift with great ease and joy!
In concept it sounds simple and common sense enough, and in practice it did work…a bit but only a fraction of what I had hoped for and an even smaller fraction of what was possible.
All of which would have been fine IF and it is an exceptionally big

IF

I had not stopped doing all of what we were doing before that worked so well.
I was so sure that this was THE WAY, that I left what was working, and even worse because I was attached I did not correct the mistake for far too long!  Instead i compensated by working more, taking on more personal clients, traveling more to deliver courses that in terms of numbers were not to the standard that I had previously declared, and I tried to cut costs instead of increase value…
The cost has been far to high, it has taken a toll on my health, time with kids, finances, inconsistent date nights with my amazing wife Cory, missing details because I got too busy.
Can you relate, have you ever gotten stuck in a whirlwind of compensation for something that you were attached to that was not working?  Job, relationship, friendships, agreements and obligations that no longer serve you?  It happens to us all, I would wager that right now in your life there is something that is not working something that is unsustainable yet you are burning time, energy, money and resources to keep it in your life.
Well the great news is this, consistent with pillar 3 of The Creator’s Code “I support Sustainability and vote consistently with all my resources” I am not just acknowledging my mistake, I am making a commitment to getting back to what has always supported our community and The Creator’s Code the most, and that is one on one coaching, one on one attention and VALUE!
What we are doing is offering FREE Creation Acceleration Coaching Sessions, yes free, yes one on one. I want to give one of these outstanding sessions to YOU!
Please understand that there are limited spots based on time and number of coaches and we must do this around our very packed program delivery schedule.  So ACT FAST!
Note: You may have already seen the email that lance sent offering the first 10 free sessions, well those  were filled in a few minutes after he sent the email. So we are going to set up another round…I believe this will go as fast as the others so apply FAST!
So
What will you get out of a Creation Acceleration Session?
In short MOVEMENT, MOMENTUM and COMMITMENT!
You will be HEARD, you will get unstuck, you will BEND TIME, You will Commit to yourself and what is most important for you to create.
So let my lesson from my most significant mistake in a long time be the launch pad for you to let go of what is not working, redirect your energy and CREATE a new chapter in your life!
Learning with you.
I am off to go skiing with the family…see how fast a shift can occur : )

Is It Possible Our Society is Addicted to Wealth?

pillar03postcardGiven that the Creator’s Code is focusing on Pillar 3 “I Support Sustainability” I was totally fascinated when attending the latest meeting of The Association of Transformational Leaders SoCal, a young man named Sam Polk began to speak.

Sam is an unassuming man with an astounding story.  Humble beginnings, family drama and a POWERFUL desire as a young man to buy his happiness.  We all know how that turns out, but few of us have the courage (or opportunity) to literally walk away from millions!

Take 5 minutes to read his op-ed  article in the NY Times.  It is a powerful message of what drives us to attempt to live in unsustainable ways and Sam is a exemplary role model of what we can do about it!
