Spark Notes: Our Sparks Require Fanning

Introducing Spark Notes, notes to spark conversations within ourselves and with others.

SparkNotesDec11

Being sparked is the beginning.  What is it the beginning of?  It is the beginning of something for YOU to explore for yourself followed by how to share it with others.  A spark could be an idea, a revelation, an aha, a moment of clarity, something that touches your heart, healing for your soul, a new way to serve, a new product to help and the list is as unique as the sparked person.

Using the event + response = outcome formula from my mentor, Jack Canfield, the spark is the event. How you and I respond to the event yields the outcome.  We do not have to know the full plan to respond, just fan the flame to keep the spark going.

How do we fan the flame? Being present. Being in inquiry. Being open to exploration.  Notice all of the responses start with being.

Being relational with a spark allows it to grow, tell, show and teach you more.  Being precedes action on the path to remarkable results.

My grandfather wisely shared his view of fanning the flame.  His experiences taught him that the “junk” of life is what fans the flames of our sparks.  When his beloved Boy Scout troops were in the woods, they looked for “junk” to keep the flames going.  The next time life presents you with your version of “junk,” consider it may be just what is needed to fan the flame of your spark.  Take another look and have a new experience

Spark Notes: Create Spaciousness Through Gratitude

Have you ever felt so full of energy, ideas, goals you want to accomplish that it felt constricting?  You are mission-oriented and there is so much you want to accomplish that even in the beauty of your goals, there is some tightness because there is so much to do and one you.  Or, you may feel constricted thinking through some solutions to current challenges, or bumps along the way of implementing your goals.

I learned the technique of gratitude as a young child.  I got a download of finding one thing to be thankful for each day, no matter how small and it shifted my day.  I remember being thankful for tator tots at lunch on a day when they weren’t on the menu. Wow, I can still taste those crunchy tator tots with the hot insides.

Because I have been practicing this technique for many years, it now has new meaning.  I realize that when I go into gratitude, it creates spaciousness.

Along our journeys we can get so focused on what’s ahead that are less connected to the gratitude that lives in how far we’ve come.

When I think about the concerns that I have today and how they differ from my concerns in the past, I am in gratitude of my journey that brought me to this point and this contemplation.  When I think about all of the things I want to accomplish and apply gratitude, I realize if the passion was instilled in me, it will come to fruition if I stay the course.  Like you, I am invested in my goals for the long haul and want to not just check an item off of a list, but to realize the full intention of the goal.  That takes time, intention, enrollment and perseverance.

Spaciousness gives us room for our greater insight to meet us.  Spaciousness opens room to receive new information or to give room for our existing information to move and form new connections that spark innovation.

Gratitude is a #key2success that builds with meaning over time.  We may have one experience with gratitude that shifts and deepens as we practice with gratitude or have an abundance of experience with gratitude.

Our keys to success are always operating in our lives.  But when we become present to them, and intentional about them, we begin the experience of practice that leads to mastery.

A Life of Purpose Products, Unlock The Keys To Your Success

Announcing the Unlock Your Keys Collection

Announcing the Release of the Unlock Your Keys Collection

Catchy title but what is this about?  The Unlock The Keys To Your Success Series is about YOU.  It is about unlocking insight, knowledge and purpose (your keys), defining success and leveraging this knowledge toward galvanized results–results that spark, excite and move you and others to inspired action.  There is a personal application and continued application for your work life, or your time with systems of people.  Each book contains 10 exercises to support you and thread your learning to the ultimate plan, your plan for results.

In addition to the books, there are products and jewelry available.  Why? Because we need reminders of our journey, our why and our intention to keep us motivated and focused.  Purpose requires changes and shifts, some great and some slight with a change of perspective.  Either way, reminders help because it is easy to go back to the familiar rather than dive into the unfamiliar that is required to grow, make an impact and realize YOUR purpose.

Watch the following introductory video.
