Do you ever feel truly aligned or connected?  Where everything you ask for and everything you are looking for just appears.  Does this happen to you?  It could be something as small as a quote at the right time.  (Which is why I love  Or you could be asking the Universe for some help with your job or your business.  You could be praying or journaling, or just thinking about it.  I am talking about when things just keep going right, you have momentum, and everything just keeps getting better and better for you.  Yeah, that is happening to me right now.  And I am so grateful, and look at the email quote I just received:

“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos into order, confusion into clarity…. It turns problems into gifts, failures into success, the unexpected into perfect timing, and mistakes into important events. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow”. – Melodie Beattie

Today is a good day.  A phenomenal day.  I just got done doing a major *happy dance* around the room.  Which I encourage each and everyone of you to do today no matter what, even if you do not have news as big as mine.  And you can make whatever news you have as big or as small as you want.

That being said…


1.  Find something that is going on in your life or create something new today, and celebrate it & yourself!  Do a Happy Dance.  (I recommend the Yoga Trance Dance, I just did it and it was enlightening, fun, and I felt very connected to it:

2.  Next email someone you love or some friends and share with them your success, or your event, or your gratitude.    Share with them what is so big for you today that you are dancing around the room in celebration for.  Today’s Challenge is to Celebrate.  Find something to celebrate then share it!


Mine:  I was dancing and celebrating the new partnership I just solidified with Paul Martinelli.  Paul was CEO of Bob Proctor’s business.  He is currently a partner on a few other business with Mary Morrisey, Les Brown (if you don’t know who less is, find a YouTube video of him, freaking awesome), and some other huge industry leaders  in the works .

Anyway, last week he was asking the Universe for someone to come in and build his online business (list building, sales, programs & products, future product launches, etc).  A few hours later I reached out to him out of the blue, we spoke, and the Universe went to work.  Today we had a 2 hour call and discovered each others goals… and we were in perfect alignment with each other!  We both want the same things and decided to form a partnership where I will be building Paul’s online business, taking a base salary yet acting as an Independent Contractor, and receiving a percentage of all the future monies I generate for Paul.  Ummm, yeah!  This is exactly what I wanted and I asked for (and a special thanks to my dear friend Stephanie, next to my computer is the sheet that you and I designed that outlines everything I wanted in my next opportunity, and this new partnership has it all)!!

It is day one, we decided right on the call that I would start today, and I am off!  Freaking on top of the world right now!  So, I just wanted to write a quick post and allow myself an opportunity to Share with others what I am just dying to shout at the top of my lungs about in excitement, and also to challenge you each to do the same.  :)

FYI, I am still acting as an independent Joint Venture Specialist with Brian Tracy International, but I will know be focusing more time on this new project with Paul Martinelli.

I just recently made The Gratitude Log my homepage. And every day I share with the world what I am grateful for. I used to write down what I was grateful for each day in a gratitude journal before I went to sleep each night. But I like this online place much better. And there are so many amazing people here! They are loving, caring and giving. There is no other place like this.

All you do is write what you are grateful for whenever you feel like it. It is a simple as writing on your Facebook Wall (and they let you share your gratitude with Facebook), or updating your Twitter. Here is my page:

“The community for spreading gratitude and appreciation. Open to shiny, happy people, businesses, and organizations the world over.”

It’s 100% FREE just like sunshine and the beautiful air you are breathing!  Join Me Today:  Gratitude Log Site

Brian Tracy Health Update

6/23/2010 ** Update On Health, CLICK HERE **

Update April 20, 2010: Brian’s first Chemo session last Thursday went well and he is back on his feet as if he never missed a beat.  I just spoke with Michael, his son, and he said that Brian is as positive as ever.  Michael said, “If anyone can get through this it’s Brian.”   Brian & II agree!  Brian wants to be doing what he loves, doing what he is passionate about, and that is speaking, writing books, and changing people’s lives in a profound way.  And until he can no longer do that, you will always catch him smiling & in high spirits!  What a man, huh?!   Note:  The cancer did not affect the lymph nodes which is really good news, so as mentioned before, this is 90% treatable.

Tomorrow I will be printing off all the comments and handing them to Brian. This is your last call.  If you leave a comments, some inspiration, a prayer, or your favorite quote below, I will personally print it out and hand deliver to Brian.  And if you know Brian, he will read them and want to respond.  :)

I consider you my friend and you are a friend of Brian Tracy International.  Thank you for your love and support.  Together we are stronger than alone.

Original Post, Thursday April 15th, 2010: Brian starts chemotherapy for his throat cancer today and I filmed a quick video update.  I will be hand delivering your comments…

Friends and fans of Brian Tracy, thank you for stopping by to share your support.  Brian has inspired and motivated millions of people from around the world and now it is our chance to return the gift.

Like many, my own personal growth began with Brian Tracy, The Psychology of Achievement.  Before that point I had never heard anyone talk like that.  It changed my life by teaching me how to set goals and to set my course to anywhere I wanted to go. He helped me plant the right seeds in fertile soil.  Now I work in his office here in Solana Beach.  I have been to his house for BBQ’s and dinners with his family.  Brian started me on an amazing journey of continuous learning, personal growth, and spirituality. I am truly blessed!

Please share your story, a prayer, a quote, or your words of inspiration below…  ** I will be taking these comments and putting them into beautiful hard copy document .  Please sign in and comment so that I may hand deliver your words to Brian.

Big props to Jess as she secured the bagels as a donation for her Charity, Jeans 4 Justice.  We used the bagels at our Justice In Motion Run for Sexual Assault Awareness Month, which is April. What a Great way to start the day!
