Happy, happy, happy 2011.

December 31st, 2010 12 Comments » Filed under Acknowledgement

Well,  my dear friends, here we are,  another year is passing by.  2011 is here! Time to evaluate endings and new beginnings.  Christmas with its multicolor lights , gifts and  bright bows is over and we are preparing to receive the brand new year. Wow. Where did the time go! It seems it was yesterday when we were receiving the year 2,000. The older you get the faster time runs in front of you. (simile)

I want to take the opportunity to thank each one of you who have been hanging out  at Soul Hangout,  for feeling out loud with your encouraging comments. Those are my most precious gifts for this year.  They made all the difference  in the world.   I am deeply grateful for your supportive words.

Also,  for the people who  have asked me to post more often. Next year I will. I am finishing with marketing system, including  sales letters and will have more time to connect with you.

For those people who asked to go deeper into the thoughts of the Inner Child in charge of your Visionary Team, we’ll be elaborating more in the subject.  I am crafting a few coaching services, and a few joint ventures new business models to work with Millennials.  Be on the look out for seminars and membership sites. I will keep you posted.

I will take that inspiration, the one you have given me by feeling out loud my writing,  for the New Year  wish. I wish you all with all my heart a year full of  mindful co-creativity and acknowledgment.    Mind you, continue to feel out loud,  please.  It is nourishment for the soul. Let’s move forward to the fundamental changes we are facing and make the difference together.  Without making the difference,  life is robotic and boring. Isn’t it?

Now, let’s talk about the golden and bubbly beverage we will  drink to celebrate the new year.

Can you relate to toasting on new year’s eve with a champagne glass full of wishful thinking bubbles? Yeah, you know, those uncertain bubble wishes without direction or action? The wishful toast for some foggy solution coming from the outside.

It’s time  to replace the wishful thinking bubbles with action thinking bubbles. There is no foggy solution coming from outside.  All the solutions are  inside. In your thoughts. You are in charge.

Here is to you! Salud! and choose your bubbles.

Pledge to Acknowledge Soul Hangout Members and Clients.

December 22nd, 2010 7 Comments » Filed under The Hawk Mindset

I will never claim I know more than you about your journey. I acknowledge your journey as your journey, I can only guide you to find your own answers within yourself.

  1. I pledge I will tell you the truth and nothing but the truth at all times. The best part is it  it will come in a straight forward way without any judgment.  I believe with all my heart that “Knowledge is only experience” as Albert Einstein stated. There is not such thing as good and or bad experience. They are all wrapped up in the gold leaf of  knowledge. Both.
  2. I pledge everything that is happening in your life now is perfect.  Because it is your story. I will help you acknowledge and embrace who you are now, so that you can move on to what you choose to be. Accept your humanity. It is the only way to expedite the process.
  3. I pledge to reveal the real meaning of “Your enemy is your Master” the icon quote from  Buddah. We’ll identify  and  reevaluate together the gifts your enemy, he or she whoever it is,  left  your way. You are not aware of how  much value for you  is hidden in your enemies actions.
  4. I pledge to help you see that what you already have, believe it or not,  is the foundation where we will build what you need.  What you already have will be the blueprint and  the starting point of your wholeness. You will experience the The power of your wholeness for the first time in a long time.
  5. I pledge I am here to help you remember 100% of your integrity,  so that you can fulfill your purpose and ignite your passion to create and contribute.
  6. I pledge that I will never jump to conclusions and fast forward without letting you completely articulate your piece, and thoroughly evaluate the facts first.
  7. Having said all that, since I am only human, I pledge to you, I will be grateful if you call me on it in the event  that at any moment I am not being true to myself and expressing any behavior that doesn’t resonate with this pledge, or shows I am not walking my talk in any way shape or form.

What would you have said if your were Thomas Edison’s friend at the 5,000 try?

December 14th, 2010 10 Comments » Filed under Acknowledgement

There is no consensus in how many times Thomas Edison tried and erred in  the making of the light bulb. The numbers, as far as I know, go from 2,000 to 14,000 times. So, for the purpose of this reflection, we’ll pick one approximate number.

Apparently the inventor reported in a radio interview that the number of trials was actually 10,000. Now, let’s stop right there and just imagine the conversations with  his friends  around the 5,000 time…? What were they thinking at the 5,000 time…His friends.  Can you imagine what he was thinking in the middle of the road to the 10,000 magic number needed to manifest the magnificent invention? Can you imagine what is he himself thinking at the 5,000 time?

History proved that he persisted 5,000 times  more.  If he didn’t,  things would have changed for all of us.  It is the huge strength of purpose what takes him like a big wave crossing the seas of her destiny.  Now the question is, what makes the difference.

What makes the difference between quitting or persisting at that point. What makes him feel like his mission and ultimate vision are bigger than him.  What is the force behind him that keeps pushing him  to continue,  against all odds. That is the key. It has to do with purpose certainty. It makes sense, if we came to this planet with a purpose that would fulfill our spirits, the very action to that initial  commitment makes you want to go on and on and on… Non stop :-)

Mind you 5,000 in this case it is that difficult place in the middle of the mountain. You know what I am talking about. Remember when you started a project, driven in the the beginning  with the enthusiasm and devotion until you got to the middle of the project?

You got to that specific place in the middle of the mountain where you can’t see the skirt of the mountain as you look down and you can’t see the peek as you look up. You are in zero zone. The only thing that will help you in that moment is, to tell you the truth, your clear sense of a big picture.

Back to the core of it.  So how do you deal with it? How did that one feel? That is the moment of truth, isn’t it? I don’t know about you, but to me that is the moment when my faith stumbles and I want to run away as far as I can, abandoning the whole thing without any shame. :) The perennial test of blind faith.

So, many people dare to start climbing  the mountain. The question is, how many make it to the top? The thing is,  that to be having the experience right there at number 5,000 and have to continue 5,000 more times to reach the golden moment of manifesting the idea into reality means to double the effort.

It prompts you to stop and think. Why is it worth it. Means a long way of certainty walking through the most dark uncertainty. Many times, more than we need, friends don’t share the same respect for your vision and your purpose. Most of the time  they are not doing it. It is hard for them to relate to the risky and uncertain task you have dedicated your life to.  Your soul purpose! Your soul is finally exploding in happiness, and your friends are on a quest to destroy your faith no matter what. Because they are focused in their own fear, and their own lack of belief.

It’s hard for them to grasp there would be purpose behind so much risk…It is hard to believe the answers are within,  because it is hard to imagine you are a knowledgeable source. Honestly. That is part of the deception. That there is nothing of value inside of us.

So they harm your journey. Interfere with your faith, and project their own fear and self disbelief to you. It has nothing to do with you. It is theirs, but you need to run away from that as fast as you can.  Serious! No matter who is playing it and how close that person feels to you.

Please let me know your thoughts about this.
