Me - A Gold Medalist In Life? Written by David Stoddard
Continued from page 1
Before we go too far "out of our way" to meet these needs, we need to see how each affects us. Do we drive our mother-in-law around to go shopping every time she wants us to? Do we continue to do "extra" things for our boss just because we are good and "can" do it?
Like so much, it all depends. But criteria of deciding should be based on overall importance we place on them. Should you do extra things, yes - at times. Should you drive mom around from time to time - sure. Should you do it all time? Only if that is what YOU feel is most important to YOU.
Life is a sport we all take part in. It is not for spectators. It is a game we all get to judge for ourselves. It is, in end, an individual sport made up of millions of individual events. It is also a team sport where by assisting others, we all can win. It is great to help others to go for their own gold, but never to sacrifice our own.
There are plenty of gold medals to go around. So get up there, stand on podium and accept yours

Magic HappensWritten by Julie Jordan Scott

3. The statement is supported by creating context for Magic to happen consistently, as I illustrated above. They don't just say that Magic happens, Disney actively creates magic. So how can we share this vision, not only in arena of amusement parks, resorts, cruises, and other entertainment venues? We can actively create a space for magic to happen in our lives. We can support our context with firm heartspaced belief that magic is already happening all around us. Taking action towards magic continually makes more magic. Sure, you could choose to have a "Something Negative Always Happens" mindset. Wouldn't you rather have a "Magic Happens, and I am Personification of Magic Wand" mindset? Try it out. Magic happens. Passion Activator: Where in your life would you most like to apply some magic today? Take a moment to decide what context will be, what first step you can take to create space, and what beliefs you will need to shift to support you in your magic creation? You WILL experience significant change when you commit to this process and create your own magic! Activate your passion!
