1. Let Go “Every time you are tempted to react in the same old way, ask if you want to be a prisoner of the past or a pioneer of the future.” 2. Nothing Is Impossible “You must find the place inside yourself where nothing is impossible.” 3. Embrace the Unknown. “Even when you think you have your life all mapped out, things happen that shape your destiny in ways you might never have imagined.” 4. Go with the Flow “Don't try to steer the river.” 5. Embrace Stillness “In the midst of movement and chaos, keep stillness inside of you.” 6. Live a Conscious Life “The way you think, the way you behave, the way you eat, can influence your life by 30 to 50 years.” 7. Find Your Purpose “There are no extra pieces in the universe. Everyone is here because he or she has a place to fill, and every piece must fit itself into the big jigsaw puzzle.” 8. Let Go of Your Ego “If you want to reach a state of bliss, then go beyond your ego and the internal dialogue. Make a decision to relinquish the need to control, the need to be approved, and the need to judge. Those are the three things the ego is doing all the time. ” 9. Embrace Your Current Relationships “Whatever relationships you have attracted in your life at this moment, are precisely the ones you need in your life at this moment. There is a hidden meaning behind all events, and this hidden meaning is serving your own evolution.” 10. Be Open To All Possibilities “Even when you think you have your life all mapped out, things happen that shape your destiny in ways you might never have imagined.” Lisa Ekanger

Challenge Yourself… April 24, 2014 By Floyd Positive Change Depends On It by Hall of Fame Speaker and Trainer Floyd Wickman Ever hear that saying, “To what you’ve never had, you have to do what you’ve never done?” It’s true. Success, the kind that is long-term, sustainable, and repeatable — requires you to CHANGE some things that might not feel ‘comfy’ at first. You’ll have to stretch your comfort zones. Challenge the beliefs that limit you. Change the level of skills you currently have. In our training program, we have a saying too — Education WITHOUT application is worse than worthless. That’s why we provide SPACED training. You learn some, apply it, learn some more, apply it, learn even more, apply it. It’s proven that it takes at least 21 days to form a habit. That’s why we space things out. It’s a way to challenge agents to develop new habits, new skills, and new mindsets. All of which create CHANGE. Not just the good kind of change – the GREAT kind of change. The stuff that takes agents to the top and helps them stay there. The stuff that helps people build life-long relationships. The stuff that allows agents to find balance. For the next week CHALLENGE yourself and see what kind of change you can create in your life. •Time: challenge yourself to truly work a SMART week, start today to block your time effectively. It’s a skill that will do wonders for your life and career. •Health: challenge yourself to drink less coffee and alcohol and more water. Add exercise back into your life if you’ve taken a ‘hiatus’. Make healthy eating choices. •Business: challenge yourself to fuel up each morning with positive affirmation, and a chance to learn one new thing per day. The internet is an incredible resource filled with unlimited learning 24/7. Take advantage of it. •Look ahead: challenge yourself to look ahead at the skills you need to grow your business to be what you want it to be. Then commit to the training it will take to get there. Spring is a busy time, but a terrific season for change. Are you up for it? We’re here if you need us! Contact us today at 800-910-5351 to schedule a training course for your organization. And if you need a refresher? Don’t miss the Summer Forum that’s coming up fast! There’s really nothing quite like it! Click here to learn more!’ I’d love to hear from you! Join us on our Team Facebook Page and share with us! Love, Lisa Ekanger Your FWT Trainer!

“Every person has the power to make others happy. Some do it simply by entering a room others by leaving the room. Some individuals leave trails of gloom; others, trails of joy. Some leave trails of hate and bitterness; others, trails of love and harmony. Some leave trails of cynicism and pessimism; others trails of faith and optimism. Some leave trails of criticism and resignation; others trails of gratitude and hope. What kind of trails do you leave?” ― William Arthur Ward Lisa Ekanger Your Preferred Trainer!

“Only once in your life, I truly believe, you find someone who can completely turn your world around. You tell them things that you’ve never shared with another soul and they absorb everything you say and actually want to hear more. You share hopes for the future, dreams that will never come true, goals that were never achieved and the many disappointments life has thrown at you. When something wonderful happens, you can’t wait to tell them about it, knowing they will share in your excitement. They are not embarrassed to cry with you when you are hurting or laugh with you when you make a fool of yourself. Never do they hurt your feelings or make you feel like you are not good enough, but rather they build you up and show you the things about yourself that make you special and even beautiful. There is never any pressure, jealousy or competition but only a quiet calmness when they are around. You can be yourself and not worry about what they will think of you because they love you for who you are. The things that seem insignificant to most people such as a note, song or walk become invaluable treasures kept safe in your heart to cherish forever. Memories of your childhood come back and are so clear and vivid it’s like being young again. Colors seem brighter and more brilliant. Laughter seems part of daily life where before it was infrequent or didn’t exist at all. A phone call or two during the day helps to get you through a long day’s work and always brings a smile to your face. In their presence, there’s no need for continuous conversation, but you find you’re quite content in just having them nearby. Things that never interested you before become fascinating because you know they are important to this person who is so special to you. You think of this person on every occasion and in everything you do. Simple things bring them to mind like a pale blue sky, gentle wind or even a storm cloud on the horizon. You open your heart knowing that there’s a chance it may be broken one day and in opening your heart, you experience a love and joy that you never dreamed possible. You find that being vulnerable is the only way to allow your heart to feel true pleasure that’s so real it scares you. You find strength in knowing you have a true friend and possibly a soul mate who will remain loyal to the end. Life seems completely different, exciting and worthwhile. Your only hope and security is in knowing that they are a part of your life.” ― Bob Marley Lisa Ekanger!

This was sent anonymously to me in the mail...after 10 years of parenting teens, I see a flicker of light... A mean mother never allows candy or sweets to take the place of a well-balanced diet A mean mother insists on knowing where her kids are at all times, who their friends are and what they do A mean mother makes her children wash dishes, make beds, cook & do other cruel and unpleasant chores A mean mother makes life miserable for her offspring by insisting that they always tell the truth A mean mother has teenagers that are more wise & sensible and smiles w/ delight when they call her mean What the world needs now are more mean mothers...and mean fathers too!

“One who has loved truly, can never lose entirely. Love is whimsical and temperamental. Its nature is ephemeral, and transitory. It comes when it pleases,and goes away without warning. Accept and enjoy it while it remains, but spend no time worrying about its departure. Worry will never bring it back.” ― Napoleon Hill Lisa Ekanger!
