Last night I attended a Louisville Bowspring class, and got to chat with the instructor a few minutes afterward. She’s someone who’s taught yoga for years and had quite a following locally, yet when she started following her intuition and introducing ideas and practices that her students and community weren’t used to, they started to look at her differently and withdraw.
She then faced a challenge — whether to pioneer forward into the “uncertain territory” she felt drawn to, or to remain with the practice and accolades she currently enjoyed.
Which would you choose?
Fortunately for the new community which has sprung up around her and greatly benefited, and for her spirit which clearly now loves the direction she’s heading, she chose to pioneer and step forward into the “unknown”.
Change can be challenging because it does bring us into new territory, and sometimes those around us don’t understand and feel threatened or frightened by the change they see in us.
Nevertheless, as we step forward with courage and trust into the unknown, we can become part of creating something wonderfully new.
Are you being challenged to change?

Here’s a key tip for those of you expanding a home business or marketing online, and particularly those of you in a networking business where you invite people to partner with you. The question is, how do you invite people to join you when you’re not “at the top” yet yourself?
Two words: vision and commitment, and a”Climbing Mt Everest” example that’s greatly assisted me.
For those of you who might enjoy this “personal” glimpse of a business from home that can expand internationally, here’s a video montage I put together from my first trip to Paris & Lyon a few years ago, experiencing the gift of a business that opens up connections with people we might otherwise have never known, with wonderful places and experiences and the ability to touch many lives…and be touched by them.
This is the kind of fun, freedom, and experience I’m passionate to assist you to create as well.

Are you seeking to create another level of excellence, achievement, business growth, or other “results” in the coming year?
Here’s an intriguing exercise I discovered in the Zanders’ book The Art of Possibility that I applied to the business arena — and the experience was very profound and personal. It’s a whole new way to look at goal-setting for the coming year, and can complement the more “traditional” methods, bringing your whole being, and who you want to become, into play.
Those I’ve shared this “future letter” exercise with have found it inspired them to write their own letter. So now I’m sharing this intriguing exercise with you.
Enjoy creating your own future, and who you’re choosing to become this year, and feel free to share your own experiences, results, or a link to your own video in the comments below.
I look forward to hearing from you!
