Refresh, Renew

Music to my ears for a brief twenty minutes or so yesterday — raindrops on the barn roof!  I was really hoping it would continue for a few hours since we need it so badly. rainThe weather forecast includes rain here today. I’m praying for that refreshing, renewing moisture to drop from the sky and wash the dust from the plants and trees, cool things off a bit, and give my garden that wonderful wet boost it’s been waiting for.

TODAY’S TIP: Take some time today to refresh and renew your spirit, your relationships, your thoughts and your life! Have a refreshing Sunday!

Back in the Saddle…..and GREAT News for YOU!

After a ten day leave of absence from posting on my blog (GADZOOKS!),
I’m b-a-a-c-k!summer

Would love to tell you that I’ve been on extended July 4th vacation, trail riding in Costa Rica or lounging on the beach in Hawaii sipping an icy drink with a little umbrella.  In reality, I’ve been recovering from a nasty, nasty summertime cold that came packaged in the form of my delightfully adorable, one-year-old granddaughter!

Your Business (or Your Life) Tune-Up

It’s been a few days since I suggested that it was time to do a Mid-Year Boost Your Business Tune-Up. How’s ittools going? Did you schedule some time and actually get it done? What did you learn?  Did you do a business tune-up, a life tune-up, both or neither?

I’ve had a couple of folks ask me what kinds of things they should examine when they do their tune-up so I put together a handy list of five important aspects to review. I think these questions apply both to business and to life. Here they are:

~ In what ways have you met your goals for the first half of the year?

~ In what ways are you ‘missing the mark’ in meeting your goals for the first half of the year?

~ What do your ‘numbers’ look like (your gross income for the year thus far and your total disbursements)?

~ What are your goals for the remainder of 2013?

~ What are your next steps to reaching those goals?

For some folks this tune-up may be a challenge. Perhaps you didn’t set any goals in 2013 for your business or your life. Or, maybe you did take some time to write down your goals, but the last time you saw them was when that pile of papers blew off the corner of your desk a couple of months ago. Or, maybe you used your goals as a fire-starter during a recent family camp-out.  TAKE HEART! — You can use your Mid-Year Boost Your Business Tune-Up to set some new goals that will carry you to success and prosperity through 2013 and beyond!

And — for those of you who want to give your business an EXTRA boost, I’ve added a SPECIAL BONUS to my two-hour, personalized, one-on-one, virtual Mid-Year FULL-SERVICE Boost Your Business Tune-Up which is available for $99!

We’ll do your goal review (or, get some new goals going for you if you don’t have any to review), take a close look at where you want to be and what you want to achieve by the end of 2013, assess what really works for you, AND we’ll put together your very own Personalized Prosperity Plan that you can follow through the end of the year to make 2013 your most successful and prosperous year EVER!  This SIZZLING HOT offer will be available through midnight (Central Time) July 7!  To take advantage of this great investment that could add thousands of dollars to your bank account by the end of the year, just drop me an email at Jean@JeanMorehouse.com and let’s get it on the calendar.

TODAY’S TIP: Share what you learned when you did your Mid-Year Boost Your Business (or Your Life) Tune-Up. OR — if you haven’t yet done it, put it on your calendar! Have a FANTASTIC Friday!

Century Mark Celebration!

partyresize

Good Monday Morning!!

Today is a celebration. This is post #100 of Tips for Success in Business and Life! In honor of this accomplishment, I plan to keep the celebration going by doing a couple of things.

First of all, I’m going to put together a list of 100 celebrations for actions I’ve taken and goals that I’ve reached in my business.

Secondly, I’m going to assemble a list of 100 celebrations for life events  and accomplishments.

And, finally, I want to have a virtual celebration to mark this momentous occasion. I’m asking YOU to participate in the party by posting a celebration of your own on this wall — either a celebration related to your business or your life.  AND…..please find a friend or two who would be willing to add theirs, too. I’d love to see 100 celebrations listed here.

LET’S KEEP THE PARTY GOING!

TODAY’S TIP:  Post a celebration below related to something you have accomplished in your business and/or your life!  HAPPY MONDAY!

Tornado

I haven’t posted anything to this blog recently because I was gone. I attended a Parelli Natural Horsemanship Horse & Soul Tour Stop in Des Moines, Iowa. The “Tour” is a two-day educational event for natural horse training methods and a great place to network with others who love horses. I’ve attended these events in the past, and, as usual, learned a lot of new information about how horses think, how I can improve my communication and relationships with my horses, and how horses continually help strengthen my leadership skills which are used daily in my business and my life.

I attended both as a participant and a volunteer so I was part of the crew that greeted and assisted participants during the event and helped in the tear-down process after it was over.  We had been aware that storms could possibly develop throughout the day Sunday and thought all was well until around 6:30 p.m. when the storm sirens blared. Fortunately, the event had concluded so only the Tour staff and volunteer crew, probably forty people or so, remained. We were quickly herded into the basement of a nearby building on the Iowa State Fairgrounds and the four horses who were still on the grounds were moved to a more secure barn. Thankfully, no tornado developed.

If you’ve heard the news in the past couple of days, you know the people in Shawnee and Moore, Oklahoma were not as fortunate.  Please take a moment to offer words of gratitude for all that you have in your life, offer prayers for those affected by the tornadoes, type “Oklahoma Relief Efforts” into your search engine,  follow a link and make a donation.
I know the tornado victims will be grateful.

TODAY’S TIP: Offer gratitude for all that you have in your life, offer prayers and thoughts for healing and peace for the victims of the tornadoes, and support relief efforts.  Have a grateful and generous Tuesday.

Get Out…….

AppleTreeComplete that statement:  Get out……..

Get out of here!
Get out of the box!
Get outside!
Get out of your office!
Get out of the car!
Any other ways you can complete the phrase?

ClimatisAll of those statements mean the same thing to me: shake things up and GET OUT — move your body!  Every day is an opportunity to reconnect with the healing power of nature and restore the amazing powers of the mind and body.  Do you take advantage of this incredible opportunity which  is so simple, costs nothing and has the ability to have such a positive impact on your life?

Here are my top 3 reasons to GET OUT!
1.  It helps me relax which leads to greater creativity.
SweetWill2.  It clears my head of clutter which results in great clarity and helps me refocus on what I truly want.
3.  It’s just DARNED FUN!!  When I’ve worked myself into a frenzy about what I didn’t do, what I need to do and what I should be doing and I’m feeling exhausted and overwhelmed, I know it’s time to take a break! I’m always amazed at how spending time outside mowing the lawn, gardening, blowing bubbles, playing with my horses, fishing, walking in the grass with my shoes off, blowing dandelion puffs into the wind or just sitting on a bench and taking in some fresh air restores and re-energizes me.

If you’d like to read a excellent article about the benefits of getting outside, including some great links to studies that illuminate the benefits of spending time in nature, CLICK HERE.

And….THANK YOU! to Mind In Motion for sharing this article!

TODAY’S TIP: Get outside and reap the benefits of reconnecting with nature.  Have a FANTABULOUS FRIDAY!

Treasure!

treasureI hope you’ll enjoy this wonderful Facebook post that I received yesterday from my friend and mentor, Barbara Winter. It’s a snippet of life with her grandson. And, I’m sending out a big THANK YOU! to her for allowing me to share it with you:

“That was a lively visit. Zachy emptied my silverware chest, filled it up with things from the bathroom counter, and hid it. Then I, wearing the headlamp from his detective gear, was enlisted to find the missing treasure. We had several rounds of this and each time he acted as if he’d never seen the wonders we uncovered before. I love this kid!”

What does that story say to you or do for you?  How does it speak to success and prosperity in your business and/or your life? This brief, five sentence recollection inspired me to claim some jewels (hmmmm — perhaps in a missing treasure box?) that definitely add sparkle to my business and my life.  I found at least four gems I can use to live into my own success and prosperity EVERY DAY!

PLAY!  Instead of tedious to-do lists, how can I PLAY while I’m building my business and living a prosperous life?  Where’s the fun?

DELIGHT  IN EVERYDAY LIFE!  What wonders of everyday life am I overlooking in my busy-ness?  What can I see with a ‘different’ eye? What delights my senses, makes me smile, makes my heart sing, brings me joy?

TEAMWORK!  Who do I want on my team and on whose team will I participate fully and with abandon?

LOVE!  How can I express love in every aspect of my life — with myself, with others, with my business or career, with my money?

What gems did you find in this little story?

TODAY’S TIP: Experience PLAY, DELIGHT, TEAMWORK, and LOVE in your business and your life today and take a moment to share what happened for you! Have a FABULOUS AND FUN Friday!
