When was the last time you read the Declaration of Independence …???
Take a minute or two to read that document. Your perspective on things changes as you gather more responsibility, knowledge and life experience. Here is a thought to ponder while you read that document. There are ONLY three types of countries in this world … the ones that we have fought against and beaten, the ones that we have fought with and saved and the ones that are protected and safe simply because we exist.
The founding fathers of this country SPOKE this nation into existence when they DECLARED our INDEPENDENCE.
Do you think they might have been just a little stressed out because they didn’t know exactly how things would turn out …???
Our founding fathers were all about becoming independent and they did so with the understanding that if they did this thing and they lost the war, they would be condemned to death. They knew the significance of being totally free to make their own decisions and live their lives on terms that they defined. That is what they wanted for everyone and they were willing to die for it. They wanted to be able to dream. To be able to be whomever they wanted to be. No matter if they were born into money or not. No matter how well educated or not. They were comfortable being uncomfortable.
Being comfortable is a slow, insidious form of suicide.
Think I’m kidding ..???
Remember that movie with Bill Murray, Groundhog Day?
Phil Connors, is a weather man who is sent to cover a story about a weather forecasting “rat” (his words not mine). This is his fourth year on the story, and he makes no effort to hide his frustration. When he wakes up the ‘following’ day he discovers that it’s Groundhog Day again, and again, and again. At first he uses this to his advantage. But then, he comes the realization that he is doomed to spend the rest of eternity in the same place, seeing the same people do the same thing EVERY day.
As he goes through the process of living the same day over and over again, he also begins to understand that his actions have no long term consequences, that knowledge can be a powerful and dangerous thing if not used correctly and that he is being given opportunity after opportunity to get the day “right”.
It is only when he becomes really authentic and transparent that he is able to develop a meaningful goal for his time trapped life – he will be a benefactor to others. Incrementally he begins to grow personally through daily self-education, he takes actions that serve other people first. Finally, he develops himself into a man that is appreciated and truly loved by that little town and he is no longer trapped in “Groundhog Day.”
Do you realize this guy was totally stressed out because he KNEW exactly how things would turn out …??? He had to get real and he had to get uncomfortable in order to bust out of that time trap …

Here is a gift for you from Ralph Waldo Emerson
Without ambition one starts nothing.
Without work one finishes nothing.
The prize will not be sent to you.
You have to win it.
The man who knows “how”
will always have a job.
The man who also knows why
will always be his boss.
As to methods there may be a
million and then some,
but principles are few.
The man who grasps principles
can successfully select his own methods.
The man who tries methods,
ignoring principles, is sure to have trouble.
Ready to celebrate YOUR Independence Day by conquering Groundhog Day with Doership…???
I have a gift for you that is worth at least $2,000 for the right person ( maybe persons .. ;-)).
The simplicity of it is so incredibly simple, that most will actually MISS IT and lose out once again.
So simple in fact, that it is actually better if you are NOT an MLM Rockstar, Network Marketing Super Hero, Internet Marketing Super Ninja or GURUof any sort … you are less likely to mess it up with all sorts of internet marketing hype and get-rick-quick nonsense…
Hah … no special training required !! You can chit chat about this at the WATER-COOLER on Tuesday…
Everything is in one little letter that my mentor Joe Schroeder wrote just for Independence Day 2010. I KNOW that what I give away, always comes back to me 100 fold … so I am GIVING this simple little letter to you.
If you are wise enough to click on the following link so that you can READ IT …
Go one step further … PRINT IT OUT
And DO what it tells you to do !! YOU will be STUNNED …
Keep it with you all the time …
READ IT when you have a free minute or two …
SHOW IT to your buddies, family, neighbors … whomever …
And THINK ABOUT this …
“If you continue to do as you’ve always done, you will continue to get what you have always gotten, is it enough?”
And then ASK YOURSELF these questions …
Is what I am getting really enough?
Is what I am thinking really enough?
Are the people I’m associating with really enough?
You are responsible for speaking your INDEPENDENCE and FREEDOM into existence … just like our Founding Fathers
Are you willing to be a tad uncomfortable so that you can throw off the shackles that bind you to things that simply don’t serve you and yours … just like our Founding Fathers
Enjoy the gift that Joe Schroeder so generously shared with me … that I am now sharing with you …
Pretty simple …
Wishing YOU and Yours An Incredible 4th of July !!
