I was up and out early this morning to shoot the old steam clock in Gastown in downtown Vancouver.
A couple of men passed by me with my camera and tripod and the one asked me a few questions. On his way back he asked a few more questions and we got talking and he quickly shared with me his life story – owning a multiple million dollar company to finding drugs at the age of 43 to being homeless, living on the streets for quite a bit and then cleaning his life up. He’s now 66, clean, loving life and asked me if he was too old to get into Photography as he wanted a hobby and this was of interest.
Hell no I said – you are never too old to do things you love or that interest you.
So what interests you? Are you doing it or is there an excuse holding you back?
Don’t let life pass you by – Live a Life YOU Love and Do It Now!!
Encyclopedia salesmen hate Wikipedia. And newspapers hate Craigslist. And music stores hate iTunes. And used bookstores hate Amazon. And travel agents hate Travelocity. And shoe stores hate Zappos. And language teachers hate Rosetta Stone. And colleges hate Great Courses. And monks hated Gutenberg. Guess what? Technology doesn’t care who you hate. It’s going to keep moving forward. Here’s a new addition to the list: WordPress, Typepad, and Blogger are all going to hate Empower Network 2.0. Looking forward to see how this change will affect you, I , my blogging etc and possibly the internet. What do you use in your business?? JB

I usually don’t watch or listen to the news as you can tell by the title it’s all good stuff!! lol
For me though, it’s just a reinforcement of why I love working for myself, being an entrepreneur and taking my future and my kids futures into my own hands…….there is NO security anymore.
We can and have the ability to create our own lives, how we want to live – BUT only if your truly think it, feel it and believe it!!
I hope you don’t think the government is there to take care of you?
Or that you will win the lottery and that will solve all your problems?
The divide is getting bigger between the rich and the poor – where are you and where will you be in a year, 2 years or 5 years?
Do something different today to move yourself towards a Life YOU Love to Live!!
Have an awesome day!!

I believe very strongly that when it comes to desire, when it comes to attraction,
that things are never black and white, things are very much shades of grey.

I have spent this past week moving – new place – new beginnings……..sometimes life presents us with a new door to open and go through with ease. I know for me I sometimes keep going to a door that has been closed or not opening try to force it open……maybe you have too.
Its a time that I am looking at a few things in my life that are working and are not and letting go of the things that aren’t and there is no right or wrong, just changing of the mind or New Beginnings.
A friend sent a great quote this morning I would love to share……
IF you continue to think the way you’ve thought… You’ll continue to feel the way you’ve felt… If you continue to feel the way you’ve felt… You’ll continue to do the things you’ve done… If you continue to do the things you’ve done… You’ll continue to get the things you’ve got… Got IT?!?!
Change YOUR Thinking… Change YOUR Life…
With a change of thinking comes a change in doing and therefore being……….
In my life experience so far, I have had many obstacles, walls and hardships come my way. One of the best things I started doing was take responsibility for everything in my life – the good, the bad, the ugly oh and the great. All of it was because of me – nothing outside of me.
I can say about myself is that I haven’t always faced my obstacles – I did play the blame game or played the victim, when I realized no matter what I am responsible things started shifting. When I looked at my life and stepped into the fear of the unknown but had goals, stayed focused and took on the Unstoppable Attitude – things started shifting.
I share the photo (yes I took it) of the Eagle as it’s one of my favorite animals but if you ever have the chance to watch them they too have that attitude. They fly the highest, are usually perched the highest – approximately 1000 sq feet high in the air flying could spot prey in a 3 mile radius, have eye sight that can spot a rabbit moving about a mile away, can see forward and side ways at the same time, can see deep in the water fish from 100’s of feet above and can live to be about 48 years old.
Eagles have an Unstoppable Attitude – where in your life or business could you bring more laser focus, or the Unstoppable Attitude in?
Overcoming obstacles and stepping into your fears and knowing where you are going allows you to achieve your goals and dreams no matter what comes in your way!
