Finally, summer. Why do we rush the seasons? Why are we always 'looking forward' to rather than enjoying what we have in the moment?

I hope all the fathers had a wonderful Father's Day. I sure did. For those of us that lost a father in the past year it helps to point out the value of recognizing people when you can. Someday you won't have the opportunity. So, reach out today.

The teleseminars I list here are free. They are my new ones; and I test them with my readers. While priceless, they are free - as your feedback helps me to make them better and better. Do join in if you have not already. If you have, join in for a new one.

Here in the USA the 4th of July is right around the corner. Take some time to rest, celebrate and recharge your batteries. Time off does increase productivity. Take to the blue water to recharge.

It seems there was value in the MY Plan teleseminar. Following up on that, we are doing a GOALS teleseminar. I bet you will find it helpful and insightful.

Sign up now for the GOALS teleseminar on June 29, 2010 AT 9 AM EDT or June 30, 2010 AT 3:00 PM EDT.

Who should join the teleseminar? Anyone who wants a better grip on his goals, objectives, and the way he does things.

  • Want your own goals?
  • Want a track to run on?
  • Want to accomplish your goals?


PS: Do you know what it feels like to have goals and accomplish them?

Cameron's Corner

"Pop" was pleased I was at the family Father's Day brunch. Me, glad to go and eat some chocolate. This is my second year of going.

Kids live in the blue water. To us, life is the blue water. Meet me out in the blue water. I'll be exploring the oceans as well as the boat. Maybe pop will take me with him. I'll ask with a smile. That always gets him

Work, live, and create in the blue water.

You can live life in the crowded narrow waterways of life. You can live like and with everyone else. Why not open a new coffee shop? There are already 4 on the street. Why not a new hamburger joint?

Why live and work where everyone else does? If you love the city, live in the city. If you love the country live in the country. Do what works for you.

Don’t copy others. Be yourself. Honor yourself, your feelings, your desires, and your emotions. Be as different as you are.

Don’t just do what the others do. Blaze a new trail. Get in the blue water, out in the ocean of life, where there are few others, and create your own way, blaze your own trail, create a new way that works for you.

Dare to be yourself. Dare to be yourself even when it is different from what others may think the norm is. You’ll find there are more like you than you realize. More who are afraid to be themselves for fear they will not fit in.

It’s all about what works for you, what gives you energy, and what excites you. It does not have to be what anyone does or likes. It’s all about you.

You don’t have to copy others. You can do it your own way. You owe it to yourself to try it your way. To do what feels right to you. And, do it now, start it now, take the first step now.

What you create in the blue water can end up the norm. What about Bill Gates or Steve Jobs? They dropped out of college and created a new industry and a new norm. They created in the blue water, away from what others were doing.

The real issue is to find your blue water, whatever and wherever that may be.

The blue water is wide open and free. There is time and space to do, to explore, and to try things out. Get away from the crowd, make friends with yourself, and do what feels right to you, regardless of what others may think or say. It’s your life, not theirs.

At the end of life the biggest regret is risks not taken. Now is the time to take the risk. Now is the time to take the adventure. Now is the time to prove your ideas to yourself. The only one you need to impress is yourself.

Go, do, be. You’ll be glad you did.
