Pillar 3 I Support Sustainability & Vote Consistently With All My Resources

Think for a moment how sustainable is your health, relationships, business, job, home?

Take a moment to watch this short video, it will assist you to look at ordinary aspects of life from a different perspective.

If this resonates also check out this powerful webinar about our 3 day transformational program The Gift.

Are You Ready to Create?

I was given as assignment from my coach to really target the people that I want in our new Creation Circles.  I started writing and with the help of the amazing Jessica Belbin this is what I came up with.

If you have EVER had a transformative experience please read this and comment if it resonates with you and your experience. Thanks in advance.
You have had a transformative experience in your life. In other words that: ‘life changing event’, a moment of Self-Realization, an “Ah-Ha moment”, the light bulb came on, Holy shit, breath stealing, Experience of Truth… moment.

Through this moment and afterwards you re-realized your Self Worth and as a result stopped reaching for the bag of Doritos (chips, cookies, ice cream, smokes, and / or glass of… watching late-night T.V. (porn on your lap top, shopping to fill the void, filling your day with ‘to do’s’, consistently satisfying everyone else first, Googling your life away) AND INSTEAD decided you were worth speaking your heart, being who you really are and doing the things in life YOU actually, truly WANTED to do.

After this moment, for at least a while and maybe still:

You dedicated yourself to growing…

You kept your momentum….

You achieved successes beyond what you ever thought possible…

You committed to your ongoing journey…

Yahoo! – (insert back flips here) – That f***ing rocks, and you deserve acknowledgement for that!

But then perhaps, and often enough, comes ‘The Gap’.

What is ‘The Gap’?
You know very well what the gap is. You wish you didn’t, but you do.

It’s the place of no longer playing the small game you used to play. But you sure as hell are not playing the game that is possible, you are not even close to living the life you can be, do and have. You know this because you saw it, you lived it for a while, then it fell away. But you can’t see a way to achieve the life you KNOW that you can have. This uncomfortable, frustrating, depressing, trapped, heavy, painful place has led to feelings of ‘blaming them’ or ‘blaming yourself’ or for a few- ‘no blame, but damn this is slow’…

The true crime with these perceptions is that they mortally wound your capacity to create. Choosing these perspectives breeds resistance and casts you in the darkness and stagnation of victimization. They are choices that lead to you selling yourself on some version of settling into your ‘life of less’. The Truth Hurts…

Are you still hurting?
Frustrated?
Or have you gone numb?

This is where most people stay stuck, between Self-blame victim:
“What’s wrong with me?” or “I suck because everyone else seems to get what they want but I can’t.” and External blame victim: “That organization, course, facilitator, book, info product, etc. took advantage of me and sold me something that doesn’t work in the real world.” or “I’ve tried my best with it. It just doesn’t work.” But lets make no mistake about it, both positions are victim.

A lucky few actually get to a spot of personal accountability, they get to live their dreams, lose weight, start families, run a successful business…

But often, even there, it feels like its going at a snails pace. It takes some time for our reality to catch up with our glimpse of our transformed self.

So we know you. We see you. Our heart goes out to you. That glimpse you had can be real… You just need a different approach! Transformation is not a program, it is not a course, it is not your 6 month series with your personal coach, it’s not your audios on your ipod and it is not all of your shelf help books.

At the Creators Code we know it does not really matter what course(s) you have taken, what journey to Machu Picchu, Nepal, etc. you have done, what guru you have touched, etc. Because..

We know that these are all just different paths to the same destination, which is acknowledging that:

You are a creator. You are a divine reflection of God. A spark of spirit. A part of the Universe. You have the capacity to create and sustain that transformation for yourself, you family, your community and yes, ultimately the world.

You are here for a reason. There is something within you that you are called to create and it’s long past due.

Your tribe is calling, are you coming?

If you are in ‘The Gap’, you are there simply because the elements for guaranteeing success are not in your life and you probably did not know what they were.

Real transformation takes 3 things in addition to your transformative experience(s) – The elements are stunningly simple but incredibly elusive: The three R’s Relate, Reframe, repeat.

Reframe your way of thinking: In case you haven’t noticed this is impossible to do while you are stuck in your own gap. It’s like being trapped in a box and the instructions for how to get out are on the outside, someone has to come along and read them to you and help you get out.

Relate: When in the gap, we attract people that reinforce our current experience and those beliefs that we have had since we were 3 years old (and again in case you haven’t noticed, that is not helping). What is required to sustain change is surrounding yourself with people who get and believe in your vision in yourself and your life. People who have walked the path and done it before you and people who look to you for inspiration and whom you step up to support. That is the way.

Repeat, Repeat, Repeat!. Neuro-Science says it takes hearing something 7 times before the neural network can even hold the idea or the possibility. But that is probably 100,000 times less than what is necessary to translate that idea into a real, tangible, sustained experience or result in your life. How many times have the messages of ‘small you’ been repeated? One of the single largest benefits of your Creation Circle is they will repeat to you over and over ‘You can’, ‘You deserve this’, ‘Its time you came here to create this’, and perhaps most importantly going back to relate ‘We’ll help!

All of these elements are what you will find in your Creation Circle!

There is no end point. There is no ‘straight line’ that anyone stays on. The truth is… the more growth, ‘ah-has’ and ‘Holy shit’ moments on the journey – the better.

Live a life of continuous purpose, clarity and contribution.

But;

Perhaps your pride says it’s impossible. Your experience says it’s risky. Your intellect says it’s pointless. But your heart says give it a try. Participating in a Creation Circle amplifies the Whisper of your Heart.
Step into (again) the magic and flow of creation! You know that within you there is SOMETHING that YOU MUST CREATE. You know with cellular certainty there is something within you that given the right environment, the correct support, the appropriate space YOU WILL MANIFEST YOUR HEARTS DESIRES:

Why Now?

• Really? Have you looked around the world lately?
• Better yet…

• Pause…
• Wait…
• Breathe…

Listen to the Whisper of your Heart …

Synchronicity, Opportunity and Signs from Above

Clue From Above

It has been a long time since I have written and much has happened in the past month or so. I will do my best to outline a few of the highlights. First of all I had my first platform presentation in Orlando at Bill Walsh’s event Inspiration 2020 which I will speak at again in October in Las Vegas.  This was a great event and thanks to Bill for putting it on and having me there, I shared the stage with a bunch of fascinating people including John Asaraf from The Secret, Ted Thomas, Ron Legrand and  Marco Kozlowski a fascinating real estate expert who we are bringing to Alberta early August be sure you catch Marco at these Inner Circle Mastery Evenings.

For perspective when I got on the plane it was freezing in Calgary and it was BEAUTIFUL in Orlando! At this event I am in the conference from 9 am  – 10 pm each morning passing this beautiful pool and water slide each morning and I gaze longingly at the pool and I promised myself that I would  spend at least some time by the pool.  That said I was so fascinated by the people who were presenting I could not tear myself away from the event.

During this time  meet Roger Salam who runs The Winners Circle TWC and I connected and he was working me (I mean seriously working me, everywhere I turned there he was saying “are you coming to the mastermind?”  it was actually pretty funny) to stay in Florida longer and attend one of his masterminds.  I was totally interested and fascinated as Colin and I spent 2 years running similar groups together, but I was REALLY missing Cory and the kids, so I was torn.  Finally I decide that I will simply take a half hour by the pool, sit in the sun have a nice cold beer and consider what I should do.

So there I sit enjoying the sun my brain literally overflowing from the amazing content of a multitude of speakers, wondering if I should just get my but home or should I stay to experience this mastermind.  It is clear to me that the future of Personal Best is outside of Alberta/Western Canada…it is clear to me that I will take a completely different approach to building the organization than I did in the past, and it is clear to me that there are more opportunities than I would be able to pursue in 10 lifetimes.  As I have these realizations I look up into the sky and there is skywriter just finishing the word “TRUST”.  A huge smile crosses my face and I think what a perfect sign for me at this moment in time.  I go back to drinking my beer, I have a short visit with a couple of fellow attendees by the pool and am content to just “BE” for awhile.  I prepare to leave the pool and make my final decision about staying for the mastermind when I look to the sky and the plane is just finishing the letter “J”!!

The picture above is an untouched sign from above that said “J TRUST” the trust word is starting to get blown around but when it was originally finished is was as clear as the letter J.

Well clearly I listened to the sign and I stayed for The Winners Circle Mastermind which was outstanding and I met some fantastic people. I did tease Roger that hiring a skywriter is going a little far to acquire a new client, but I did appreciate the nudge. I will share my experience of the TWC mastermind in a future entry it too was full of fascinating synchronicity.

My questions for you are:

What are the signs around you that are nudging you?

Are you paying attention to the synchronicity of the universe?

What do the signs actually mean?

What must you take action on today?

Remember:

There is no such thing as chance; and what seem to us merest accident springs from the deepest source of destiny.
Friedrich Schiller (1759 – 1805)

Until next time, Jay
