Climbing the Wall

Last week, I offered up on a new saga beginning. I wrote to the ideas of “silos to synergy” and “everything requires everything”.

This week, I find myself this morning on Day 4 of The Baha’i Fast. It is at this juncture that I often find what I call “the early wall”. The Fast is not about starvation. Indeed there are exceptions to fasting due to age, travel, heavy work, illness, pregnancy and so on. But, the Fast is more about the spirit. ‘Abdu’l-Bahá said fasting “is the cause of awakening man. The heart becomes tender and the spirituality of man increases. This is produced by the fact that man’s thoughts will be confined to the commemoration of God, and through this awakening and stimulation surely ideal advancements follow”.

The Early Wall

That all being said, at this “early wall’, I find myself challenged. So far, The Fast has seen and been less so; challenging, that is. But today, the body is reminded of the challenge.

I arose before Dawn to have my protein rich first meal and water that will last me through daylight, to break the fast at Sunset. (It is not lost on me that, to those unfamiliar with fasting, we need to remember that Ramadan and Lent were intended as fasts and the word breakfast means to break the fast of overnight, but I digress.) I did arise this morning, with my body feeling “let’s not this day”. And I found my spirit reminding me of that why that ‘Abdu’l-Bahá spoke of… awakening, tender heart, spirituality, commemoration, and advancement.

So, I will climb the wall, nay hurdle it. I will remember back to the new saga and “everything requires everything”. I will remind myself that my life is mine and that I am continually moving forward. Today, I will finish work on updates on the website and the work, moving from those silos to synergy. Today, I will focus my energies on building a new saga.

Yesterday, I got great news around health. Blood tests came back and the results were good and great. My “pre-diabetic” status is reversed. I am no longer such. My markers are all great. And, I continue on my health road to being in the best shape of my life by the Summer. Indeed, this week, I address some other health matters.

Also yesterday, I got new phones and a car (to be delivered Friday) yesterday. Through it all, I am building the new saga. There are challenges going on inside my head and heart, but I am working through them. Indeed, the only way through them is through them.

My Point

Consider these words of Bahá’u’lláh

There was once a lover who had sighed for long years in separation from his beloved, and wasted in the fire of remoteness. From the rule of love, his heart was empty of patience, and his body weary of his spirit; he reckoned life without her as a mockery, and time consumed him away. How many a day he found no rest in longing for her; how many a night the pain of her kept him from sleep; his body was worn to a sigh, his heart’s wound had turned him to a cry of sorrow. He had given a thousand lives for one taste of the cup of her presence, but it availed him not. The doctors knew no cure for him, and companions avoided his company; yea, physicians have no medicine for one sick of love, unless the favor of the beloved one deliver him. At last, the tree of his longing yielded the fruit of despair, and the fire of his hope fell to ashes. Then one night he could live no more, and he went out of his house and made for the marketplace. On a sudden, a watchman followed 14 after him. He broke into a run, with the watchman following; then other watchmen came together, and barred every passage to the weary one. And the wretched one cried from his heart, and ran here and there, and moaned to himself: “Surely this watchman is Izrá’íl, my angel of death, following so fast upon me; or he is a tyrant of men, seeking to harm me.” His feet carried him on, the one bleeding with the arrow of love, and his heart lamented. Then he came to a garden wall, and with untold pain he scaled it, for it proved very high; and forgetting his life, he threw himself down to the garden. And there he beheld his beloved with a lamp in her hand, searching for a ring she had lost. When the heart-surrendered lover looked on his ravishing love, he drew a great breath and raised up his hands in prayer, crying: “O God! Give Thou glory to the watchman, and riches and long life. For the watchman was Gabriel, guiding this poor one; or he was Isráfíl, bringing life to this wretched one!”

This story speaks to me. The watchmen are not our enemies. Our challenges are not our foes. They are moving us, to our best life and love, if we but listen, and trust. I need to keep listening, and to climb that wall.

Peace, passion and prosperity…

Fear: The End?

Over this month, we have looked at fear.  In our last post, we dug in on Fear and the Track Record.  Today, we bring it all together with an add.

Jenny says…

To catch you and me up to date, here is what I have shared this month.

This month I will speak on fear and how we allow it to consume and control us.  Fear is defined as an unpleasant emotion caused by the belief that someone or something is dangerous likely to cause pain, or a threat. It is to be afraid of someone or something.

Many of us allow fear to control decisions and choices that we make, which in turn may alter the path that our life is meant to take. It can be stressful, create anxiety and overwhelm us and our lives.
When I think of fear, a video from Steve Harvey’s talk show comes to mind. He was in between airing his show during commercial break and out of nowhere got the urge to speak to his audience about “jumping”. He speaks about how is it that we really know if we can be successful at something if we don’t take the “jump” and just go for it. It was awe inspiring and motivational. I suggest finding it and watching it. It resonated with me and to be truthful it helped me “jump”.

Fear can be for a multitude of things. We can be afraid of anything from spiders, to a change in careers, or maybe we are afraid of death. These things are inevitable. We will experience so many different things in the duration of our lives. Why would we allow the fear of encountering these things freeze us from moving fluidly to experience all that the world has to offer?

It is so much easier to say than to do. I get that, believe me. I spent my life questioning what it was that I was meant to do. I dabbled in different jobs. Many of them over the years. I exceled in some, but not at others. But no matter what job I was doing, something wasn’t there. Even though I felt this in the depth of my heart, mind and gut, I didn’t know what it was that I was meant to do. I was fearful of going back to school. I was fearful of failure. Or maybe a little fearful of getting an education that I either would not use, or I wouldn’t truly love. Because of this I took many years to explore, to figure out what it was that I was destined to study. From the age of 19 up until the age of 31, I kept coming back to helping people in some capacity whether large or small. I worked in retirement homes, I worked with children, I worked with adults that had Cerebral Palsy and Down Syndrome. I grew to know that I was meant to help. Whatever that looked like? I also knew that I love hard. I genuinely care. I feel pain of others and truly empathize. So, there had to be something that fit this criteria. There had to be something that nurtured my strengths and passions. And there was. But first I had to dig deep and get to know who I am as a person. Then it took a whole other level of realness within me. Which at moments brought on a fear of its own. But I pushed through it, fear and all. I worked on my abilities and skills and the rest fell into place.

When we think of fear, we think of the negative aspect of it. What we don’t always realize is there are actual benefits to feeling fear. Fear guides our fight and flight responses. It also heightens our senses while keeping us alert and better prepared. When our brain kicks in to fight or flight our body is pumped full of Cortisol (the stress hormone). When we are finding ourselves flushed with stress or fear our adrenaline kicks in. Adrenaline increases our heart rate, but also gives us a burst of energy and focuses our attention on the danger at hand. During this fearful or stressful state, your body is also supplying norepinephrine, which is much like arousal. It helps us become more aware, alert, awake and focused. We become more responsive. And it pumps blood flow to the areas that are the most essential during this time, so that we can flee the stressful situation.

I think of all the things that our body and brain is capable of in these moments. I think hell, why are we not learning how to use fear and stress in a more positive way? Why can’t we build on our fear and maybe somehow it will help us overcome and conquer something that we had no idea we were even capable of? Or maybe allowing ourselves to feel the fear in those very real and terrifying moments, we in turn discover life-altering realizations about who we really are, and why we react in those particular moments.

So, a little more about what I discovered in the moments of facing “my fear”, and even years after. I spend my younger adult years just living life, moving from apartment to apartment, house to house. I never stayed in any place too long. I never stayed in any relationship too long. I had a gypsy soul, and still do in a much healthier way. I was lost I guess you could say. I was so unsure of anything in life, anything other than knowing I wanted to be a mom. That was the only thing I could think, the only thing that I was certain of. Even though I was young, I was a lover, and a very nurturing person. I knew I needed to be needed. It might sound crazy, but that was something I felt at a very young age. So, the years went by quickly, still no growth on my part, or at least I didn’t feel that there was. Yet, there was! Every single moment of my life was growth somehow. Even the moments where I was failing. There was growth in my bad decisions. There was growth in every relationship I ever had. I couldn’t see exactly how this would all play out. But it did. And now years later I see how and why all of those moments, those fearful situations, and those terrifying yet brave choices that I made put me in the right place in my life. It gave me the tools I needed to know when the moment came for me to “jump”. And it’s funny because I watched Steve Harvey’s video and thought “how will I know when and where I should actually jump?”. Boy did it smack me right in the face. It was like walking straight into a brick wall. And it was scary as all hell. It shook me to the core, yet, made EVERYTHING so damn clear. Everything in my life had led me to this moment. Now this may look so different for each and every one of you. It may not only shake you to your very core, but it might knock you right off your feet. I guess that is where harnessing our stress hormone and our fear comes to play.

Today, OCTOBER 30, I offer…

Maybe instead of running when we feel this undeniable pull in a certain direction, we should instead explore this path. Maybe this is the path that we were meant to travel. Maybe it is something you never in a million years thought that you would do, or even be interested in doing. Now let me be clear, I am talking healthy changes, healthy exploration and experiences. I am not saying to jump into a random relationship or take a job because you have a fear of the unknown. I am saying listen to your body cues. Feel that surge of energy when the cortisol flushes through you. Use that as your driving force to challenge or overcome the obstacle that you are facing.

Barry says…

… and I intend to; explore. Thanks for that reminder Jenny.  These past few years, especially, since my TIA/stroke in 2015, I have felt something of a gnawing in my Soul.  Indeed, over the last year or so in particular, I have taken on a strategic and almost purposefully meandering journey of reflection and re-engineering … almost.  No, not almost, indeed and in deed.

This week, that kind of culminated in a post called What Matters Most?  In that, I shared on making and leaving your M.A.R.K. and stating your C.A.S.E..  I highly recommend the read if I do say so myself; and I do.

With that in mind, my deepest desire is not for riches nor fame, but service and impact.  I seek only to work with those I can truly help.  They are identified in that blog, where I focus it down to:

  • I love, honor and have a blast helping global goal minded, and noble hearted educators, entrepreneurs and leaders move the world. I speak, teach, coach, facilitate, consult, write, cartoon, sing, dance, vlog, blog, pod and create on it.

How does this relate to fear?  I am about to go outside my ever increased (over the years) box.  I have had moments in my life where I was called upon, first resisted, and then made my jump… and those moments served in (a) teaching me my best relationship with fear, (b) showing me new understandings of capacity, and (c) offering new vistas and roads.  This moment is no different.

In doing so, it might mean some kind of change of scenery; not necessarily geographically.  It might mean new circles.  It will mean new circles.  That does not mean leaving my teaching, nor my work with Epic Engage™.  That is the core and heart to this growth.  I am an educator and entrepreneur who simply wants to love, honor and have a blast helping those global goal minded, and noble hearted educators, entrepreneurs and leaders move the world.  It does mean digging deeper on a global focus.

Since childhood, I have seen myself as “Terran”, and my neighbourhood was Newfoundland and Labrador.  I seek to primarily travel and work and walk with those that get that.  That is not an elitist view because such a vision is open and accessible to anyone.  It does mean that it is time for me to put on those global glasses and find those whose full heart is in it.  I have no desire to retreat into local life.  I love where I live, and will always call it my “hood”.  But my vision is world embracing, and embracing is more than “accepting”.  It requires a Wholeheartedness that says there is no “Plan B”.  It requires such a Wholeheartedness that many might not share.  That is OK.  A part of me wants to ride with everyone.  A bigger part of me knows that we best ride with those who want to ride together.

My life and friendships and work will not change much.  But, there will be a fundamental change in seeing my life as “global”. As noted, I care not for riches, nor fame.  Still, this “boy inside the man” has always sought service and impact that has no freakin’ borders and serves those who have the capacity and deep desire for the “betterment of the world”.

Some will not be on board, and that scares a part of me.  But, that is good. Fear is a friend that causes us to question what it is we fear.  Some fears tell us that we need to protect ourselves and that is a good thing.  Some fears say “I dare you“.  That is a good thing too.

For the next two months, I am choosing to run silent and deep.  I will continue posting daily on my platforms of Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram and Twitter, thrice daily; morning, noon and night.  Three times daily with posts that I feel might add to the character of life.

That being said, I will be laying low otherwise..  I will be focusing on my teaching, Epic Engage™, my university courses and my health.  I will not be out and about.  There may be an event or two.  There will be a few coffees and evenings with friends.  But, I am drawing back, taking a deeper dive into those “global” eyes.  I will be better understanding that I am a world citizen; an educator and entrepreneur without borders, if you will.

Will drawing back and doing so be scary?  Yup.  Yip. Uh-huh.  It will mean questioning and changing my life in ways I have gotten used to for now seemingly too long.  I love my life, and am grateful for it; but it is time to change it.

So, and again, let me ask you.

  • What matters most to you? What cause or work or progress or service matters most to you? Deeply. Maybe consider those global goals to jog some thought.
  • How do you imagine yourself now, or in the future, helping advance on it… moving the needle on it?
  • Who do you imagine yourself best serving in doing so?
  • What talents, capacities and services do you bring to move that needle?
  • How will you be known with consistency, that is aligned with you, simple and enjoyable?

Dare yourself.  Your fear might be your friend.  Fear is never the end… it is the beginning; of discovery.  Spend some time with you.  Reflect.  Re-engineer.  Face the fear and feed the fire.  I will.

TOGETHER

So, yes… fear has been our journey for October.  Together, Jenny and I ever continue to be committed to living a joyful life and work.  Friends and colleagues do that.  As noted, having a better understanding of fear helps too.  We will continue to explore our own perspectives on love and character and how they can build a life of work, play and service that is right for each and all of us.

Join us, stay tuned and engage us.  Our lives matter.

LISTENING and LOVE

Last week, we shared on The Paths of Love. Indeed, throughout September, we have been taking an eye to love and self care.  We have shared on Love and Grace, and The Long, Cool Road … and through the broadCAST September 2019.  We recommend the reads and reflection, and we continue the deeper dive now.

Jenny says…

In my last post, I finished with… “In life there will always be moments to love ourselves enough to rest and take care of our basic needs. But how we come to do that is the real test. This is where we are doing the best with what we have, or what we know. We are taught by people around us how we should and shouldn’t love ourselves. We mirror what we have watched growing up. We allow people to plants seeds, such as, selfish, lazy, high maintenance, or needy. When in all reality it is a basic need of ours. We NEED to care for ourselves. However that looks to each of us may be completely different or one in the same. Now like I said, we are either taught how to love ourselves or we learn. So, let us learn.”

Since then, I have thought:

  • Self-care is whatever you feel it might be. It is the things that fill your tank. For me that is cuddling into my boy, going for a nice meal by myself, or just going for a walk amongst nature. It can also be a pedicure, or a hot bath, or dressing up in your nicest clothes and getting out of the house for a bit. It honestly doesn’t take much. I find myself becoming depleted when I don’t try to do those things for myself. I guess what I am saying, is the notion of self- love and self-care is wonderful, but to really kick ourselves into gear to do it seems to be a problem within many these days.
  • I just sent a text to a dear friend to say hi and to let her know I missed her. I asked how she was, she mentioned she was exhausted. She has had a full summer, with visitors and adventure and has yet to slow down. But in that text, I knew that she was clearly feeling the tired lagging feeling that we all feel in moments. My response was “Go rest, listen to your body and rest.” Sounds simple right? But it isn’t as simple as that. She feels the need to entertain and accommodate her guests. And that’s cool. But she needs to entertain and accommodate her body, and what her body needs. And in little moments our body will tell us. It will scream at us. It will begin to shut down. Whether it is through pure exhaustion, or anger, or irritability or tears. WE NEED TO LISTEN!!! I have to listen.  I will share more after I do.  🙂 

Barry says…

Love it, Jenny.  Listening is a manifestation of love.  Listening is a power of L.O.V.E..  If L.O.V.E. is LOOKING inside ourselves for our strengths, seeking out OPPORTUNITIES where those strengths are most needed, having a VISION of how applying those strengths to the opportunities will make life better, and then ENGAGING the action… then listening is one of those powers in potential.

  • Listening
  • Is
  • Sincerity
  • Trust
  • Empathy
  • Now

Listening is love in action.  It is sincere.  It is worthy of trust.  It is empathy in action.  And, it is in the now.  It is present.  In the Virtues Project™, we suggest Companioning is listening.  It is 7-step, character driven process of sincerity, trustworthiness, empathy and presence, in the now. It has no agenda but to be present with sincerity, trust and empathy.  It has no answers, but a love to be that presence, with ears and heart.

You can find a copy here, or here.  Or you can connect with me at barry(at)epicengage.com and I will send you a copy.

Either way, I suggest listening is a manifestation of love; and a powerful one.  And, I suggest (as does Jenny) that we listen to others, and ourselves.  Be your own best companion and you can be a better one for others.

Until next time…

TOGETHER

Together, we continue to be committed to living a joyful life and work.

Best friends do that.

Together, we will continue to explore our own perspectives on love and character and how they can build a life of work, play and service that is right for each and all of us.

Join us, stay tuned and engage us.  Our lives matter.

My Summer CAMP

Last week, I published Summer Cookin’ with the AL’s.   I am holding true to it.  I have met with Felicia Newell and Jon Butler on plans for my health this Summer and into the Fall of 2019.  And, I am excited about same.  In a nutshell, and drawing on my last post, I reiterate my vision:

  • SpirituAL … I am a spiritually connected man, and Baha’i
  • EmotionAL… I am a Simple Man, best friend to my #bestlittledogintheworld Panda
  • PersonAL… I am a singer, dancer, cartoonist, writer, archer and storyteller
  • PhysicAL… I am a man of 36″ waist and 100 kilos
  • MateriAL… I am a man of simple beautiful home and car, with new bed, telescope and wardrobe
  • FinanciAL… I am a man of healthy WEALTH, not extravagant but allowing me to do the work I love and love the work I do, to live the life I love and love the life I live, and support the causes and people in which I believe most
  • VocationAL, ProfessionAL, OccupationAL… I am an educator, for life
  • EntrepreneuriAL… I am The Unity Guy™ of Epic Engage™, the global Character Leadership Company
  • EducationAL… I am a master student and teacher on character leadership, education and unity building, able to speak in English, Mandarin and French

And, now, I am taking 6 days to disappear and cleanse.  I will get more clear, with a much deeper dive.  Some niggling things demand such.  I will pray and meditate.  I will pray and meditate, and act. I will be that spiritually connected man, Baha’i.

I will pray and meditate on what it means to be that Simple Man, and best friend to my #bestlittledogintheworld Panda.  I will pray and meditate on what is speaking to me about singing, dancing, cartooning, writing, and more.  I will pray and meditate on my physical vision; a man of 36″ waist and 100 kilos.  I will pray and meditate on my simple beautiful home and car, with new bed, telescope and wardrobe.  I will pray and meditate on being a man of healthy WEALTH, not extravagant but allowing me to do the work I love and love the work I do, to live the life I love and love the life I live, and support the causes and people in which I believe most.  I will pray and meditate on my work as educator and entrepreneur.,, as The Unity Guy™ of Epic Engage™.  And, I will pray and meditate on being a master student and teacher on character leadership, education and unity building, able to speak in English, Mandarin and French.

Yes, I will pray and meditate; and be open.  Shoghi Effendi once said that there are 5 suggested steps to prayerful problem solving:

  • Pray and meditate about it. Use the prayers of the Manifestations as they have the greatest power. Then remain in the silence of contemplation for a few minutes.
  • Arrive at a decision and hold this. This decision is usually born during the contemplation. It may seem almost impossible of accomplishment but if it seems to be as answer to a prayer or a way of solving the problem, then immediately take the next step.
  • Have determination to carry the decision through. Many fail here. The decision, budding into determination, is blighted and instead becomes a wish or a vague longing. When determination is born, immediately take the next step.
  • Have faith and confidence that the power will flow through you, the right way will appear, the door will open, the right thought, the right message, the right principle or the right book will be given you. Have confidence, and the right thing will come to your need. Then, as you rise from prayer, take at once the fifth step.
  • …lastly, ACT; Act as though it had all been answered. Then act with tireless, ceaseless energy. And as you act, you, yourself, will become a magnet, which will attract more power to your being, until you become an unobstructed channel for the Divine power to flow through you.

You can find more, here.  Most importantly, I will act on that clarity that comes from such prayer and meditation; as the advice is given above.  I will enter such with open mind and heart.  I will be relentless.  I will carve out my own best truth.

My thought to you is four-fold.

  • Cleansing of mind, body and spirit requires honesty, openness and courage.
  • Doing so is an investment.
  • Doing so requires us to be open, adaptive and relentless (your OARs in the water).
  • The return is high, on Clarity and Confidence.

How can you see yourself cleansing and getting to the essentials?  For me, I have done much of such this past year, but, of late, I have come to see that I need this one big push… to truly get back to me.  It may not radically change things (or it may).  But, it is always best to get on your best path.

So, I am disappearing for a week.  I will have conversations with those I deeply trust.  I will take actions needed.  I will meditate.  I will pray.

It is CAMP, for me.  🙂

See you on the other side.

In the meantime, and in related news, consider the latest Leaducator July 2019.  It has relevance, resonance and links worthy of consideration I humbly offer.  Engage and enjoy.

Peace, passion and prosperity…

My Best Contract

Some time ago, I referenced the notion of dealing with the ducks.  So many things can grab our attention and disrupt and distract… and more… taking our eyes off the prize.  Of late, I have been experiencing the culmination of a strategic reflection over the last year or so in particular; a reflection intended to get a sharper focus on the most important path for me.  A manifestation of that culmination is found in Manifest, Oh!.  In so getting to this space of late, I have been exploring patience in posts on:

The journey has had a last minute spurring from a reading and reflection on:

I offer these up for two reasons.  First, I humbly suggest each is worth a read and reflect as stand alone.  Second, the value in my own going back on what I have written is not lost on me.  When we record, we must always remember that there is value in the review and reflect.  Record, review and reflect offer a powerful, simple process for learning.  I might suggest that record, review, reflect and re-engineer are a powerful foursome.  I guess I just did.  🙂

That being said, in Manifest, Oh!… I stated that:

A manifesto is a published declaration of the intentions and motives. Mine now goes something like this.

  • I believe in humanity and its future and I am prepared to stand for it in faith, thought, will and action. It is my best birthright. I believe it to be all of ours. I unapologetically believe in the nobility of the human spirit and choose to explore and celebrate humanity and the best and truest of heroism, humility, helpfulness and humor. Yup, there is a bunch of H factors worth hoisting and honoring. In so believing…
  • I teach business leadership at College of the North Atlantic, in class and online; and love my global work with Epic Engage™.
  • I work with noble minded and hearted leaducators, communitrepreneurs and emergents in advancing character leadership and unity building.
  • I deliver in English, Mandarin and French to bring that work to the world. 
  • I have also engaged a deepened level of spiritual studies and practice through The Ruhi Institute, and more. 
  • I am living a life filled with love, song, dance, cartooning, writing, epic stories, archery and more of what and who I love. My #bestlittledogintheworld Panda is by my side in enjoying it all. 
  • I am 110K in weight (slim for my body structure) and benching same; healthy and strong. And, I am financially ready, willing and able to support special projects in which I deeply want to invest and contribute.
  • I am loving it! All!

My 90 day strategic plans for 20022020 as referenced in 2019, Here We Come… they remain, and aligned.  Having a powerful set of 90 day plans aligned with a truly resonant vision is a powerful thing as well.  This is why I suggest some rereads of the above, on and of your own.  But, the core of this blog is truly around an a-ha for me this morning.

My Best Contract

Years ago, I discovered this prayer by Abdu’l-Bahá.  I fell in love with it, and then, after a time, took it for granted somewhat.  In saying it this morning, I realized that it is a contract between God and myself. Let me explain.

What I ask of God is this:

O God!  Refresh and gladden my spirit.  Purify my heart.  Illumine my powers. 

What I promise to God is this:

I lay all my affairs in Thy hand. 

What I expect of God is this:

Thou art my Guide and my Refuge. 

What I commit to God is this:

I will no longer be sorrowful and grieved; I will be a happy and joyful being.  O God!  I will no longer be full of anxiety, nor will I let trouble harass me.  I will not dwell on the unpleasant things of life.

What I accept from God is this:

O God!  Thou art more friend to me than I am to myself. 

What I give to God is this:

I dedicate myself to Thee, O Lord.

As a Baha’i, I see God as no “man in the sky”, but an unknowable and truly sentient force that is in ultimate control.  Maybe, the ultimate mathematician. 🙂

That being said, I have my free will, or I would not be choosing to offer up what I do in this prayer.  I could chose not to do so.  That is my right, and responsibility.

So, why is this important?  For me, I now see that the path towards my Vision 20022020 with its 90 day strategic plans, and the living of my manifesto, must needs be best guided by this contract in the form of this prayer.  As I walk resolute towards, I need to remember what I ask and what I promise.

I Ask, Expect and Request

  • I ask to have my spirit refreshed and gladdened, my heart purified of questionable motives, and my powers illumined.  I ask and expect that God be my Guide and Refuge.  I ask and recognize that God be my better friend.

I Promise

  • I promise that I will lay all my affairs in the “hand of God”.  I promise, in so doing, that I will no longer be sorrowful and grieved and that I will be a happy and joyful being.  I promise that I will no longer be full of anxiety, nor will I let trouble harass me.  I promise that I will not dwell on the unpleasant things of life.  Full of anxiety and dwelling on the unpleasant is my promise to avoid.  It does not imply that I will be free of same but that I will not dwell there.  That is significant.  I will have my moments but I will not stay there.  Most of all it means that I promise myself to my best understanding of God.

Whether this resonates for you or not, it does for me.  Whether prayer and God resonate for you or not, there is value in understanding that:

  • a powerful and resonant vision is important
  • 90 day strategic plans are very useful in getting there, and
  • a “spiritual” contract or commitment to guide the walk is advisable.

I have my vision, my plans and now my contract.  Time to up the work and business.

Peace, passion and prosperity…

Strategic Patience

I have been pondering Patience a bit of late.  Last week, I shared on Patiently Something Fierce. I suggest it a worthy little read, with links.  That being said, I am pondering the strategic application of Patience.

Patience is a powerful strength of character in moving forward and facing the future.  Patience is not simply biting our tongue or holding our breath.  It is a knowing that we will get there; wherever there might be.  Water is patient.  It gets where it needs to go, eventually, despite blocks and dams and obstacles.  It will find a way.  Sometimes it will roar and rush.  Sometimes it will flow, or even trickle.  Sometimes even, it will seem stagnant but it is either evaporating or seeping into the water table.  Either way, it will get where it is going.  It is Patience, as strength.  Much of nature knows this too.  Do the work, and inherently trust in the outcome.

I saw this same quality in Chris Ballard, GM of the Indianapolis Colts in his season closing remarks.  Patience is a quiet but powerful knowing that, as we focus on our work, things will happen.  Patience is a powerful form of confidence.  It is poise personified.  It trusts.  It understand that there is work to do, but it trusts in the process.  So, going forward, it is a powerful, practical strength of character, and it is grown in practice.  For me, the T’ra’at is indeed talking.

When we look on other matters, we need to be strategic in understanding when Patience is called upon, and not.  I strongly suggest that Patience is a noble practice in working and living with others.  Everyone has a journey.  That being said, I have fallen prey in my life to excessively waiting on people with respect to work and projects and initiatives, often over accommodating for their hesitancy.  Unfortunately that hesitancy is often grounded in their inability to say that they are not truly ready, willing or able… and in their desire to politely agree so as not to disappoint.  While we should and must be patient with people, that does not imply that we should accommodate thusly.  Great advice given to me years ago, but only now fully gotten is…

  • … go fiercely in the direction that your soul calls and see who shows up.  Do not entertain the well -intended.  Engage the intent.  Do not accommodate the polite “cannot say no” travelers.  Ride with those who have identified they are going there too.  Be patient with those who cannot or truly do not want to ride with you, but not patient in waiting on them changing their hearts or minds.  The train is rolling, and the right ones will catch up.

I am munching on this; digesting it.  Patience is a strength, and a strategic one at that.  It is wise to know when and where and with whom it is required.

As Joe Calloway puts it in his book The Leadership Mindset, “As the leader, you are the prime keeper and defender of the culture. It is your job. While everyone is part of the culture, you can’t delegate this one because you are the embodiment of the culture. Regardless of what it says on the poster in the break room about ‘Our Culture’ everyone looks to you, what you say, and, more important, how you behave to know what the organization stands for.”  You must assert same.  Patience tells you move forward and trust in the process.  It also tells you that, if some are not on board, you must keep moving.

Whether in school, at work, in business or throughout community… the strategic strength that is Patience must be considered.  As of tomorrow, I have 400 days left for my 20022020 Vision.

  • It is 20022020, and I am a master and lifelong student of the global body of work around character leadership and unity building. I have learned conversational Mandarin and French to bring that work more global. I have also engaged a deepened level of spiritual studies and practice through The Ruhi Institute, and more. I am living a life filled with love, song, dance, cartooning, writing, epic stories, archery and more of what and who I love. My #bestlittledogintheworld Panda is by my side in enjoying it all. I am teaching business leadership at College of the North Atlantic, in class and online; and doing my global work of Epic Engage™. I am loving it! I am 110K in weight (slim for my body structure) and benching same; healthy and strong. And, I am financially ready, willing and able to support special projects in which I deeply want to invest and contribute.

Slow and steady patience in building that vision; I am reminded.

Peace, passion and prosperity…

Patiently Something Fierce

“Somethin’ fierce” is a phrase I have heard turned locally over the years.  “That weather was somethin’ fierce” … meaning it was definitely intense.  Last week, I posted on The Pit Stop of Patience and the importance that the virtue that is Patience plays in living our best lives.  I believe that it was Elizabeth Barrett Browning who wrote of what we could learn of Patience in nature.

‘O DREARY life,’ we cry, ‘ O dreary life ! ‘
And still the generations of the birds
Sing through our sighing, and the flocks and herds
Serenely live while we are keeping strife
With Heaven’s true purpose in us, as a knife
Against which we may struggle ! Ocean girds
Unslackened the dry land, savannah-swards
Unweary sweep, hills watch unworn, and rife
Meek leaves drop year]y from the forest-trees
To show, above, the unwasted stars that pass
In their old glory: O thou God of old,
Grant me some smaller grace than comes to these !–
But so much patience as a blade of grass
Grows by, contented through the heat and cold.

Panda, my #bestlittledogintheworld demonstrates it.  This morning, I am still reflecting on its power to wait and believe, and trust.  This morning though, I am also reminded of the strength that is fierceness.  Panda demonstrates such as well.  The word fierce can conjure up images of violence and aggression.  But its meaning can also illicit thoughts of strength and assertion.  I consider the former to be faux fierce, and the latter to be the real stuff.  I need the real stuff with my buckets of health, education, service and love this year.  I especially need it with respect to continuing getting back to a healthy, strong body.  Patient and Fierce, oh yes.

Fierce is that strength of both veracity and tenacity.  Veracity is that strength of character grounded in Truthfulness.  Tenacity is that strength grounded in Determination.  Now, imagine Patience with this twin winged power of Truthfulness and Determination.  This does not imply that one has to be the proverbial bull in a China shop.  That, I still consider to be the faux fierce.

It does imply that we know our best destination; the one for which we have the utmost resolve.  It does imply that we not obsess on that which distracts us… our frustrations, fears and idle fantasies.  It does imply that we are (as my dear soul sis and I refer to as) holy all in full arse.  We are wholehearted with being fierce. We are stronger than our fear.  Indeed, the only and true fear we have is in not reaching for that destination, of service and life.  We are willing to give our very all for it.

Imagine the strength that is the balance of Patience and Fierceness.  Imagine the Trust and Certitude in having a clear and strong sense of who you are and where your soul knows you need go.  Imagine that Patience to know you will get there.  Imagine that Fierceness that will bring you the resolve to do so.  One is your ballast.  The other is your sail.

For me, I am pondering such capacity this morning as I continue my journey, and into a new year.   I am reminded by colleagues of the capacity that this time of year potentially brings.  I am reminded that I need to be patiently something fierce.

Peace, passion and prosperity…

The Pit Stop of Patience

On New Year’s Eve, I wrote this on And So It is New Year 2019. It concerned itself with vision and goals, purpose, meaning, character and more… and I truly and humbly do suggest the read.

Last night and today, January 1-2 in the Northeast Avalon including St. John’s and Mount Pearl, we were met with this storm.  At first it promised to be a blizzard, but it turned and is turning out to be two storms in one.  I even liken it to a bit of a snowy hurricane; high winds and snow, lightening up with rain and freezing rain for a bit, then returning to snow and very high winds.  It has grounded the city, at the very beginning of the new year.  For a snapshot look, notice the shovel handle in the far right of the photo, just outside the door.

Yup, walloped a bit hard, and amidst all the plans for the new year.  Social media has been filled with messages for a great new year, and I am sure many had plans to hit the ground running, myself included.  For me, the intent was and is to launch the new EPIC Speakernet…. 26 expert speakers coming together to be available for conferences and events in Newfoundland and Labrador… effective and officially today.  The thought was and is to launch the introduction of #hUmaNITY and Project BLACKWING™… this week.  The thought was and is to launch our now 19 free services… including DELIVER™, CAPS Cares, and Speakeasies™.  And yes, our updated site.  Yes, there were great intentions, and I guess, by noting them here, I have kind of introduced and/or launched each.  Still, I am reminded that journeys require patience.  Even just two days in can test the journey.  We are eager to get at it.  Then, right at the beginning, a wheel can fall off.

Patience is not about biting our tongues or holding our breaths.  Patience is the power (or at least one of the core powers) of the hunt, and the journey.  The hunt is not simply about the chase, but the wait.

And that can be weighty for many of us.  I know that it can be for me. But then and tonight, I think…

Consider Patience

The Virtues Reflection Card says it is hopeful and expectant, un-rushed and gentle with mistakes.  It says it accepts where we are, with an essential confidence that that is not where we will stay.  Patience does not panic or become disturbed or doubtful.  It breathes well. It trusts that we will make it.  It is the tortoise over the hare.  It has a quiet confidence, and sense of certitude.  It know it will get there.

As my back is “gone” and the snow keeps coming, I need to understand this.  As we each reach for that which we most soulfully desire this year, in whatever areas and arenas of our lives, we need to remember that Rome took more than a day.  Our souls know that.  Our egos struggle with it.  Listen to your soul.  Our lives are journeys.  Our years are segments.  Our days are miles.  Some miles are pit stops and we (I) must remember that the pit stops are necessary.  Indeed, I believe it was the remarkable Stephen Covey who once referenced that sometimes we are too busy to stop for gas, and we must stop for gas.

So, as you venture forth in 2019, enjoy the ride, be alert to the times for both movement and stillness.  If it helps, I offer up this prayer I say in remembrance of my sister.

  • Make me ready, in all circumstances, O my Lord, to serve Thee and to set myself towards the adored sanctuary of Thy Revelation and of Thy Beauty. If it be Thy pleasure, make me to grow as a tender herb in the meadows of Thy grace, that the gentle winds of Thy will may stir me up and bend me into conformity with Thy pleasure, in such wise that my movement and my stillness may be wholly directed by Thee.

Among other things, it speaks to me of the necessity of movement and stillness.  It is not all up to me.  I am simply to be ready.  This storm is out of my control, as is much in life.  What is within my grasp is the ability to be ready.  In education, leadership, business community building and more… certainly, in life … in 2019, I wish that you live your life ready and to be alert to the things that come your way.

Listen and live.

Peace, passion and prosperity…

Pre-Flight Check

Back on October 10th, I posted this on An Invitation to Bucket. In it, I suggested that I would focus on 5 “buckets” going forward:

  • Educational, which will include my MBa, Mandarin, French and even spiritual
  • Joyful… which will include emotional, and inspirational
  • Work and Service… including vocational, and social
  • Physical… my health
  • WEALTH… including material and financial

First, I suggest you might find it of value to read that post.  The notion of buckets is particularly of value to me.  From that, I developed my “five buckets statement” to be filled by 20022020 (my 60th birthday)… an application of Ikigai for me personally:

It is 20022020, and I am a master and lifelong student of the global body of work around character leadership and unity building.  I have learned conversational Mandarin and French to bring that work more global.  I have also engaged a deepened level of spiritual studies and practice through The Ruhi Institute, and more.  I am living a life filled with love, song, dance, cartooning, writing, epic stories, archery and more of what and who I love.  My #bestlittledogintheworld Panda is by my side in enjoying it all.  I am teaching business leadership at College of the North Atlantic, in class and online; and doing my global work of Epic Engage™. I am loving it!  I am 110K in weight (slim for my body structure) and benching same; healthy and strong. And, I am financially ready, willing and able to support special projects in which I deeply want to invest and contribute.

Since then (and if you want to follow the journey), I have written on:

The learnings and evolution continued on this sense of vision.  Then, it heated up with this on GREAT Goal and the Hunt… whereupon I set my 90 Day Snapshots as building blocks for my vision.  I do suggest a good read of that post.

Since then, I documented and developed on:

,,, further “sharpening the blades” on this path of commitment.  To date, it has culminated in last week’s post on THE EPIC ENGAGE … wherein I asked “Who are you? Who do you want to be?”

So What?

All of this is to offer up a path upon which to reflect in possibly reading these posts, and to say that this morning I see them as a boarding of the plane, if you will.  You see, yesterday was a day that started with intense challenge and yet a focus on getting up and at it.  Through it all, I called upon Courage and Certitude, a deep sense of Faith and Trust in what I know… of me and my Commitment to my vision.  I was not going small.  By day’s end, much had changed… had been accomplished, and even re-evaluated.  The getting at it had gotten me to it.  It had revealed nuanced but important realizations.  Yesterday was my pre-flight check, having spent the last few weeks boarding the plane.

What did it reveal?  Well for SNAPSHOT 1: November 15, 2018 through February 12, 2019… 90 days…. it revealed success and otherwise.

  • I am walking as a daily student of the practice of character, unity and spirit
  • I am learning the first basics of conversational Mandarin and French
  • I am continuing my education studies, completing my current course
  • I am prayerfully engaged in my Ruhi studies, Books 1 through 7
  • I am singing, writing and living daily, with my #bestlittledogintheworld Panda
  • I have re-launched the new Epic Engage™ in January, with:
    • Project Black Wing™ for launch January 1, 2019
    • DELIVER™ sessions November 2018 and January 2019
    • Thinking CAPS™ national chats December 2018, and January and February 2019
    • NLAWS™ and Speakernet officially launched January 1, 2019
    • new blog-comic strip called Aukwords™ launched in January 2019
    • momondays St. John`s December 10, 2018
    • Speakeasies™ starting in January 2019
  • I am sharing epic stories, via video and momondays
  • I have strong connections with the business development community, including:
    • MBO
    • Futurpreneur, and
    • NLOWE
  • I have successfully completed the Fall term, teaching business leadership at college
  •  have completed and constructed my 20022020 462-day W.E.A.L.T.H.™ Plan.

I am successfully on track and even ahead on most of these items (the blue).  There is but one that is currently “woeful”.

  • I have a 38 inch waist, eating “more than right”, walking daily

Actually, it is more “whoa-full”.  I had to go whoa and realize that something was not quite right.  The  systems check has found an issue.  Yet, that has changed in the last two weeks too.  With the pre-diabetes warning of my doctor (a new piece of news as past tests have never show such a sign) and the promise that it can be thwarted in its advance… I am now eating so much better; so very much better.  I am not on track with the snapshot goal, but I have found the track.  Success!

THE BOTTOM LINE

I offer all of this to say that my pre-flight check and its revelations have demonstrated and reinforced to me that:

  1. having a clear and palpable vision is powerful
  2. having snapshot goals as building blocks towards that vision are equally so
  3. systems checks on the validity of both are vital… and are more productive than shaming.

As you get clear on your vision for 2019 (and I hope and suggest that you do), and identify your snapshot building block goals in getting there… please approach them and evaluate them not as pass or fail, but as learnings to help ready for flight.  See the “glitches” as gifts.  See them as teachers.  For me, there have been real successes with the practice of character, unity and spirit, Mandarin and French, education studies, Ruhi studies, and singing, writing and living daily with my #bestlittledogintheworld Panda.  In addition and over this Christmas Break that I have just started, it will see me finalizing on the new Epic Engage™ in January, and constructing my 20022020  W.E.A.L.T.H.™ Plan.  These are successes for me.  But so is my learning on health.  There is no shame in learning, only strength.  For me, what I have learned on that front is that I needed to get deeper on my sense of commitment.  The pre-diabetes warning was just that.  It has galvanized me, not shamed me.  As an educator, I understand that tests are not meant to fail us but to teach us what we know and need to get better knowing.  I am learning.

I wish you a year of vision, goals, learning and growing.  I will share more in a few days.

Peace, passion and prosperity.

NOW: November Reign

Last week, I wrote on Optimist Primed and Ready.  I think it worth a read and reflect.  For me. 🙂  I also wrote on my 3 Cents on Leadership.  Another reread for me.  I need to reread and reflect… and munch on these yet again.

This week has been eventful.  With work on the new Epic Speakernet™ we are launching and my full slate of work, there have been successes indeed; milestones in the making.  But this week has also tested Optimism.  That being said, Optimism is up to it.

Optimism is not about ignoring problems.  It is not about avoiding the negative.  It is about recognizing the good, the bad and the ugly… and knowing “we got this”.  That requires a range of virtues including Detachment, Patience, Faith, Trust, Determination, Steadfastness, Flexibility, Endurance, Forbearance, Fortitude, Courage, Resilience, Integrity and more.  I say this because virtues are latent within us.  They but need practice.  Practice makes permanent.

Back on September 26, it was world Character Day.  I love the fact that there is a recognition of its importance, and the need for it in this world.  We need character every day.  That requires, nay demands, practice.  If you have ever wished or prayed for more patience, I suggest two things.  First, don’t be surprised if the world gives you an opportunity to practice it.  Second, you do not simply receive Patience.  You practice it.  You work at it, like any craft.

Every virtue is latent within us, in potential.  To develop them, we need practice them.  We practice Acceptance and Confidence and Joyfulness.  We practice Strength and Unity.  Practice makes permanent and we are building a deeper understanding and mastery of a virtue as we become it’s student.  Character matters; and it requires work.

So, yes… this week tested my Optimism.  But, that is the point.  It remains within me.  It always has.  Indeed and now, its access is strengthened.  I am even better at putting it into practice now.  I have always found it a natural virtue for me but now I understand a deeper dive on it.  Optimism shines in the face of trial.

So, for November, I am running a very personal journey called November Reign.  I will spend the next 30 days working on my vision with a fierce and defiant Optimism.  I will own it.  It will be my reign.  Actually, and more specifically, it will be a reign of Nobility, Optimism and Wholeheartedness (NOW).  I will be the poster child for being a student of these three… Nobility in seeing and honoring the best in life, Optimism in living it, and Wholeheartedness in the energy I bring to it.  I will live my slightly and newly updated 20022020 vision of…

  • It is 20022020, and I am a master and lifelong student of the global body of work around character leadership and unity building.  I have learned conversational Mandarin and French to bring that work more global.  I have also engaged a deepened level of spiritual studies and practice through The Ruhi Institute, and more.  I am living a life filled with love, song, dance, cartooning, writing, epic stories, archery, boxing and more of what and who I love.  My #bestlittledogintheworld Panda is by my side in enjoying it all.  I am teaching business leadership at College of the North Atlantic, in class and online; and doing my global work of Epic Engage™. I am loving it!  I am 110K in weight (slim for my body structure) and benching same; healthy and strong. And, I am financially ready, willing and able to support special projects in which I deeply want to invest and contribute.

… as if it already has manifested.  It has.  I will walk this month fired up with the practice of Nobility, Optimism, and Wholeheartedness strengthened by Certitude.

More specifically, for November…

  • I will walk as a student of character
  • I will learn the very basics of conversational Mandarin
  • I will prayerfully engage in my Ruhi studies
  • I will sing, write, and live with my #bestlittledogintheworld Panda
  • I will teach business leadership at college and do my thing with Epic Engage™
  • I will eat “more than right” and walk daily.  

I will.  I will listen to The Hero Within… and a slate of Shinedown tunes like I Dare You… they are my band after all … and Wake Up … and more.  I will listen to MY music, not in some superficial pumping up kind of way … but to feed my soul.  I will reinforce the insatiable hunger for Optimism that already resides within.

I am inviting you to join me on November Reign.  It requires nothing but to take on your battle cry. Where do you need to BRING IT this month?  I mean bring it.  What do you need to do this month that will send one big cool ball hurtling into motion?

Yes, this week has had cool and great moments and conversations; and it has had walls to climb.  Yeah, Optimism is practiced.  It is built, with work.  It shines greatest when tested.  It shines greatest when we deal with the walls.  These times in which we live are a test.  But Optimism is up for it.  I am too.  How about you?

Peace, passion and prosperity.
