Live Long and Prosper

WOW! Today was awesome! I had so much fun presenting today. My courses flew by and we didn't even get through all the content. I guess that's expected when you try to transmit everything you've learned in less than 3 hours.

Additionally, I received some of the nicest compliments on my content and presentation skills. I love when my audience is tickled beyond delight.

Three other noteworthy items I want to mention for today:

First, I had the most incredible salads. My chopped cobb for lunch was divine, as was my dinner strawberry spinach.

Second, the number of companies that came up after and tried to recruit me away from Nutra was flattering. I didn't tell any of them no either. I simply told them to shoot me over an offer and I'd consider. Figure it would be silly to not at least see what they put on the table. If it's a better fit for me. . . let's just say, I'd love to work from home again and be somewhere I can continue to add exceptional value.

Third, I would be remiss if I didn't thank the universe for my many blessings. First, I just added over 125 new people to my network. They all had incredible energy and spirit and that's just rad. Second, I'm super grateful for the miracle of finding my iPhone. I left it on my podium after my evening session and got all the way back to my hotel before realizing I had left it. By the time I made it back to my conference room, the doors were all locked up. The security guards helped me get back in and I ran back to the scene of abandonment to discover that it was still there. What a blessing! Universe your grace is not lost on me!

Finally, I'm excited for the rest of the conference. I can kick back, relax, and enjoy the people and content. We've got some great content coming up and I'm stoked to be here. This has been an incredibly rewarding day. I met tons of incredible people and was able to share a little bit of my knowledge and expertise with no expectation of return. Live long and Prosper!

Holy Treason

I don’t know if you’re like me or not, but I was born into the one and only “true” religion of God. I spent my entire life studying and living the principles and teachings of my faith. I knew the doctrine, and I believed it to be true. Until I didn’t.

The road to the unraveling of my faith is a rather long one—definitely another article for another day--but suffice it to say, I began studying other religions and realized that all of them contained beautiful truths. I felt as uplifted and inspired while reading their scriptures as I did reading mine. I understood why some referred to religion as a “faith culture” for I was now aware that had I been born and raised in a different religion, I’d have believed that religious tradition to be true.

I came to see religions as merely vehicles leading us back to God. Surely God didn’t care whether his children drove jalopies or Jaguars so long as they were moving along the superhighway back to Him. Or could it be her? Or perhaps there wasn’t just…


I've been thinking a bit about relationships. I'm seeing them differently than I've ever seen them before. First, I realize that relationships are created in our minds. What we think about our relationships defines them. If I think my daughter is ungrateful, I will see ingratitude in all her actions. If I tell myself my coworker is annoying, I will find him extremely so.  And so it goes. What we think about others creates how we relate to them.

So why not think happy, positive, loving thoughts about the people we relate with? We absolutely have the power to create amazing relationships by changing the way we think about our relations.

Second, I've been thinking about the importance of loving the people in our life for who they are, not for what we need them to be. People need freedom to be who they want to be. If you love someone, you don't try to change them. That isn't love. Love is accepting someone for who they are and where they are right now. Love knows n…

His Light Lives On

Page told me during breakfast this morning that President Thomas S. Monson passed away last night. The realization that a great soul had left this mortal life washed over me. I wanted to pay tribute to him today so I decided I would take his framed picture with me to work and set it aside a lighted candle. It would be my way to acknowledge the illuminating affect he has had in my life and the life of so many others, as well as signify that his light lives on.

Here's how it looked:

I moved him throughout the day so that I could always see him. I also spent some time reading some of his most beloved quotes. I felt his presence and my love for his great soul increased. Some of the quotes I shared with others throughout the day include:
Decisions determine destiny Your future is as bright as your faith   Search inward. Reach outward. Look heavenward Never postpone a prompting We can't direct the wind but we can adjust the sails It's always better to look up Stand for t…
