Reality is Right Now

If you've been looking for an opportunity, this is it.

Hopes, dreams and wishes can be powerful and compelling,
yet if they remain imprisoned within you, you'll never know
their true beauty and value. Now is when you can take the
very best of what's in you, and give it room to grow.
Reality is where you are right here and now. And the great
The time is upon you to create and to experience life's
A couple of weeks ago on the RichLife Show one of our callers, Brad, shared with us that he was loving his children by leaving valuable experiences with them – memories of special trips they get to take together … special things they get to do with their Dad – TREASURES that they get to keep in their hearts forever … memories that they can pull out any time they want to and which will allow them to keep their Dad and that particular experience alive for as long as they are here on earth! That is PRICELESS!
Whitney Houston LOVED other people enough to leave them with very valuable experiences. She had amazing talent that she was blessed with and truly served millions of people all over the world with that gift! Oh, there is no question at all that her personal life was an absolute wreck because of choices she made when she lost focus and clarity.
Remember for all of us, this IS Life School. There are many lessons to be learned from examining her life. The big thing that's all to obvious- regardless of how rich someone is, how famous they are, how popular they are, throughout all of it and in the end, they are human, just like you and me. I personally know plenty of people that outwardly seem to have it all, only to be absolutely, totally bankrupt on the inside. However, I really don't want to talk about that. What I do want to do is talk about the GIFT of LOVE that she gave to this world when she was fulfill her calling, when she chose to leave us with valuable experiences.
My good friend and mentor, Steve D'Annuzio, said this–
"take the opportunity to shape the reality of this day to mirror the best that is within you. This is when your values, your visions, and your unique essence can be given expression and fulfillment. The time is upon you to create and to experience life's richness in your own special way. Fill it with meaning and purpose, and fill it with all you are."
Millions of people, myself included, have wonderful memories of Whitney Houston – when we hear her voice again, when we hear the purity of her singing again, we will be blessed one more time with another valuable experience from the legacy she left behind.
That legacy was created when she was expressing and using her unique talents and gifts as they were intended for her to use them. It was when her light was shining its brightest, when she was fulfilling her purpose here on earth. She blessed the world with the gift of her voice and she will always be remembered because of that.
When someone gets tuned in to their Life Purpose and they go after it with everything they have inside of them – without regard to the opinions of others and despite their own personal fears – they set themselves on fire!! They focus in on serving OTHER PEOPLE with their unique gifts and talents. They steward their time and health which allows them to complete the task they were put here on earth to complete.
People who are able to fulfill their calling find the highest level of fulfillment in life. And, sometimes it happens, as it happened with Whitney, living one's calling takes a back seat to living life.
The irony of it is, trying to live life without fulfilling your calling is a very empty way to live life. That's when people start going outside of themselves to find a way to feel whole and complete – typically making poor relationship choices or turning to drugs and alcohol to take the pain away, to fill the emptiness – only there are no real answers out there.
The answer is inside… inside of YOU, inside each of us! It is found by getting clear about why you are here on planet Earth and what you are supposed to be doing while you are here. A personal commitment and investment in CLARITY is absolutely necessary to stay on course fulfilling your PURPOSE … living the life of your dreams and leaving others valuable experiences to treasure forever!
Later this week, we are sharing the amazing, real-life story of one woman who made the choice to commit and invest in getting CLARITY about why she is here on earth. She has stayed the course and has been able to radically transform her life. Once homeless, physically abused, and addicted, Elise Adams took responsibility for what she COULD control and is now not only living her own definition of a RichLife, but helping others to achieve theirs.
