I’m going to share the 6th Mindset straight from the book! This one is so good, it doesn’t need altering.
Live to Give teaches us that abundance in one’s life is a cycle, and so to get love, respect, and financial security we must first learn to give those things. This mindset also teaches that the greatest gift we can ever give is to find and leverage our unique genius to maximize our positive impact on the world, knowing that good things will be returned to us in kind. Woooohoo — that’s powerful. Did you get it? I hope so.
You can start this process by doing some of these things. Like I mentioned, in earlier posts, you can get all the details of the 7Mindsets in the book. So go get yourself a copy.

If someone else says to me that PASSION is overrated — I’m going to pop ’em a good one (I’m not advocating for violence here — just trying to make a point). It’s so interesting how you get so many perspectives on this topic. Clearly we don’t all have the same experiences, so our thoughts about being passionate about what we do and making a choice to LIVE our lives based on that is an individual preference. Here’s what some of the naysayers may say:
1. You’ve been trying to live your passions for a long time, don’t seem to have anything to show for it. — Good grief people.
2. Passion is overrated. — OK, so if it’s overrated then what is it?
3. You can’t EAT passion and passion DON’T pay the bills! — Can you be a bigger Dream Snatcher?
For my readers today: GET INTO a “Sphere of Positivity“. YOUR PASSION IS POWER!

PUT PASSION FIRST – Pursue your authentic talents and deepest interests
I WOKE UP this morning with this burning question in my head. Is everything possible? You know at some point you’ve got to make a decision on whether you believe that, because if you don’t — YOU’RE STUCK in impossibilities. And Lord knows you don’t want to end up there.
Early morning business conversations through text started as my eyes opened — isn’t it interesting how we just roll towards the nightstand, grab our phones and start handling business as if there wasn’t a break between the night before when you ended your day with a text. How our lives have changed.
Anyway, let me continue….so many great creative thoughts and energy were circulating in the atmosphere this morning — I couldn’t stop dreaming of “BIG”! So though challenges met me this morning as well –they don’t stop coming folks, remember that– (below excepts from the book The 7Mindsets To Live Your Ultimate Life)
1. Look internally before looking at external factors
2. Challenge your current thinking
3. Engage your imagination
4. Then put your imagination to work
5. Expect Success, Happiness and Meaning
6. Don’t worry about the HOW
7. Be wary of DREAM SNATCHERS — OOOH WEE this is a good one!
Several months ago I asked the Co-founder of the 7Mindsets, Scott Shickler, to speak to an audience at Kennesaw State University. Here’s what’s interesting, the event wasn’t as well attended as I had hoped. Disappointed, I decided to channel my energy in a different manner and change my mindset. What happened next was unexpected — I was introduced to 7Mindsets. Some of which, I unknowingly, had already been living — but the others I was acting counter to.
After the session, I approached Scott and shared how inspiring the message was for me and even for a group of 4 staff members — the message is still the same powerful message, even if it’s just for ONE.
The Magic Wand Foundation produces the power-packed summer summit, for teens, called the Ultimate Life Summit (ULS) and I’d been having a secret desire to attend since it began a few years back. More so because I wrote a book on Cultivating Critical Connections: A Guide for Creating Genuine Relationships and “We Are Connected” is one of the 7Mindsets (didn’t know that when I wrote my book). Feeling some serious synergy — I just walked up to Scott and said — I’m going to be at the next Ultimate Life Summit (ULS) this summer. His response to me was, “really, are you?” I said yup. Not even realizing how that was going to take place — but I was dreaming that nothing was impossible. Well what do you know, I participated this weekend as an educator in Ultimate Life University and I propose to you that it CHANGED MY LIFE.
OK I’m setting you up now. I could go on and on…but I’ll spare you and allow the 7Mindsets to speak to you personally. For the next 7 days take this journey of commitment and confirmation with me. Let’s see what happens.
