Speak up, because the day you don’t speak up for the things that matter to you is the day your freedom truly ends.
What would you do if you witnessed something that you knew was unethical, immoral, corrupt or unjust? It’s a big question. What would you do if you worked for a company that you knew was participating in shady affairs or was discriminating someone? Would you stay for the security of a pay check or would you speak up and risk being fired? My grandmother told me a story of when she was a young woman living in Munich during the war. She was catholic but against the Third Reich. The typical greeting was to extend and raise up your arm and say heil hitler. She didn’t do that, but spit on the ground instead. By the sheer grace of G-d she wasn’t killed. My great grandmother hid many people in her home who would have been taken off to a concentration camp too.
I often ask myself this question. I don’t thing I could live with myself if I didn’t speak up against injustice. If you keep silent and turn away from speaking up about something you know isn’t moral, then we all suffer the consequences in the long run. It’s not a popular thing to do. It takes tremendous self confidence and conviction to speak up against a system that has been getting away with corruption.
Whether it’s something big, like going against a company like Monsanto that produces the carcinogenic product roundup or someone being harassed who doesn’t have the means to defend themselves in your place of employment, speaking up is the ethical thing to do. If you want your children to live in a harmonious, honest and free culture, use your voice to speak up. It’s that important.

Discipline is being able to force yourself to do something in spite of how you feel over and over and over until it becomes a habit.
The word discipline comes from the Latin word discipulus meaning “student”. Or you can say to be a learner. In other words having self discipline in being a good student who wants to learn. It is a high level of awareness to give yourself a command and follow through with it. If you want to be a great musician, you have to practice playing your instrument every day for hours. If you want to be a great athlete you have to train your mind and body every day, in spite of how tired or achy you feel. This goes for anything you desire to master.
This year my word that I am giving my attention to is FOCUS. I will discipline myself to focus on the things I desire to manifest into my life in a relaxed state of mind. I say relaxed because if I try to force myself to do this in a tense way, I am just sabotaging my efforts. What is it that you really want to create in your life for 2020? With discipline, you can make it happen. Hire a coach, get an accountability partner and practice, practice practice!
Be a good learner, be disciplined!

Happy New Year!
What an exciting time to be alive. Never has humanity witnessed so much change. We truly are on the cutting edge of a quantum leap in evolution. However, for you to thrive in 2020, you must have a clear vision on what you want to create and amplitude that picture with an elevated emotion.
The best way to do this, is to write down what it is you want to create and meditate on it in a relaxed state. Choose words and pictures that have a vibrational match to your vision and abracadabra watch what happens.
The words you speak and write are very powerful. It’s like magic. If you want to create something wonderful for 2020, be mindful of the words you use and the emotion behind them. You are literally creating as you speak. What do you want to bring into your life? Good health, happiness, joy, prosperity, friendship, love and all good things are all possible. Keeping your focus on what you desire and giving energy to positive words, thoughts, feelings and actions will manifest your desires.
Every year, I have a single word that I use as my guiding light. This year it is FOCUS. For me this signifies concentration on my purpose and life’s work. It will allow me to be more present in everything I do and everyone I am with. To give my full attention on being in the now. What is your word? What word describes what you want to create for 2020?
That one word can open worlds you never knew existed if you follow your heart and allow it to guide you. Maybe it’s love, abundance, joy, passion or whatever you choose, but live every day with that word being the center point in which you dedicate everything you do. So, as the world turns another year into the future, you too can turn your attention and focus on your best year. Together, each and everyone of us can create a more peaceful, loving and healthier world if we focus on manifesting it and create it through our words. Use them wisely.
All the very best,

What the world needs now is more kindness, compassion and peace.
Wishing everyone a most joyous, peaceful and loving Holiday.
Prayer of St Francis
Lord, make me an instrument of your peace;
where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
and where there is sadness, joy.
O Divine Master,
grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console;
to be understood, as to understand;
to be loved, as to love;
for it is in giving that we receive,
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
and it is in dying that we are born to Eternal Life.

“Most People fail, not because of their lack of desire but of their lack of commitment.”
Can you believe it’s December of 2019? Where has the time gone? As we complete yet another year on the calendar, what have you done this past year that makes you feel good that you committed to? Have you kept your commitment and promise to yourself on accomplishing your desires, goals and aspirations?
If you haven’t, what do you think is holding you back? What is it that gets you so pumped up and excited about starting something and then that drive slowly vanishes? I know for myself, that when I’ve planned on eating healthier, getting in better shape or developing my business goals, and I overdo it, I slowly start to make excuses to myself why today isn’t a good day to continue. Then little by little, I’m right back where I started, and nothing improves. Now I know that to get lasting results, I first must make a commitment and a promise to myself that I am going to follow through on what I truly desire. Second, I do not overwhelm myself with an all or nothing mentality. I have learned the Kaizen Principle. Kai=Change
Zen=Good. It means to become good through change. This is a Japanese philosophy of continuous improvement. It is a series of small incremental and daily routines done over long periods of time that will result in dramatic and lasting improvements. Wow, this has made such remarkable improvements in every aspect of my life! This was something I could commit too. With small incremental improvements, it’s like compounded interest. You get better and better at something over time. What do you want to change and commit to in the New Year? What ever it is you want to improve and change, you can make it happen. If you commit to taking little steps every day, where you will be at the end of 2020 will amaze yourself!
It’s always best to have an accountability partner to support you and keep you on track, so reach out and hire a professional coach that will encourage you on the days you want to quit. 2020 is the year of clear vision. Get started now. Change for the good is possible.

“If the only prayer you will ever say in your entire life is Thank you, it will be enough”.
What ever you’re doing, whom ever you’re with, and where ever you will be, I wish you a very joyful, peaceful and loving Thanksgiving.
Share the love!
