It’s hard to believe 2018 is almost over. What a year it’s been!
As we wrap up this year and turn our hopes to 2019, there are two pearls of wisdom I’d like to share for the new year.
1) We are enough. Period.
In my last article, I spoke about the soul’s desire for more, and how sometimes we get confused when we crave more and assume that where we are (and who we are) isn’t good enough.
The truth is: We are enough. Where we are, right now, is enough. UNTIL we decide we want to become more. It’s that simple.
We. Are. Enough.
To highlight this, I’d like to share a powerful song with you. Music speaks to me. It always has. It helps me understand my feelings, insecurities and desires.
The song “You Say” by Lauren Daigle captures the doubt we carry about our value. Most of us, including me, fear that we are not good enough. We question our worth. We compare ourselves to others. We fear failure and, many times, we even fear success.
The truth is: We are good enough, just as we are. We are enough. No one can convince us or make us believe we’re enough: not our parents, our spouse, or, even as the singer notes, God. We must CHOOSE to believe we are worthy with or without external validation.
It’s a choice we must consciously make.
2) We CAN have more.
Step one is accepting that who we are is enough. But, why do we want more? Because our soul is hard wired for it. More is how the soul evolves.
Often when Succeeders take our Life Transformation Programs and are asked to define what they want, they get stuck. As if they’re paralyzed in quicksand.
As a person with big dreams, I never understood why defining goals and dreams was hard. I’ve had big dreams for as long as I can remember, and they get bigger with each new break-through.
However, experiencing failures while working to create my biggest dream (the Share On Purpose portfolio of companies) taught me why we struggle to define goals and deep desires.
We struggle because we are afraid that we can’t have or can’t create what we want.
So, we settle for what we have and fear asking for more.
That fear is a trap.
You can create just about anything if you want it bad enough, and if you prioritize carefully. Anything.
Don’t believe me?
Well, in January I am kicking off a 100-Day Prosperity Challenge to prove it. If you want to join me, purchase the Accelerating Abundance Self-Directed course now and you’ll get the Small Group Coaching Program for free, which I will personally lead next month.
Our research shows that collaborating and working with a partner can dramatically accelerate results, so as an added bonus I am giving a buy-one-get-one-free coupon to each person who purchases this month. Share with or gift to a friend so you can both join me in the 100-Day Prosperity Challenge(That’s a $970 value for $210). You get the on demand course, the small group coaching program AND you get to give both of them away as a gift.
You can create more in your life. More success, more money, more joy and more meaning. Learn how to create more with someone you care about.
I’m on a mission to prove that abundance is not only possible, but easier than you could ever imagine.
By using our soul’s natural creation process, we can move through fear and doubt, and focus on what we want to create, rather than what we fear.
Let’s do that together in 2019!

If the thought of selling and promoting your business strikes fear in you, there is good news! There is a way to grow your business WITHOUT selling. It may be time to consider a more authentic approach to demand generation.
Being entrepreneurial doesn’t necessarily mean you’re meant to be an entrepreneur. Some people with entrepreneurial traits just can’t hack it as entrepreneurs. In fact, many entrepreneurial types find more success and joy working for somebody else.
After a decade of living purposefully and working with countless others in defining their purpose, I’ve found the purpose-quest means different things to different people. The question “what is my purpose?” could be asked for 3 very different reasons.
