As I am working on a my content for my Seminar Focus In, I saw this article. I was struggling to find the right words to talk about creating new support groups. Since I believe there are no accidents in the universe, I know I was meant to receive this article.
I can not emphasis enough the importance of creating new circle of people who support your dreams, not your reality. If our reality is not as good as we would like it to be, and your circle of friends helps you feel bad/good about it, they are not helping you move forward.
As far as how to find those people – Joe Vitale is talking about participating in Seminars. I am a big fan of seminars, and I am constantly creating new circles to support my dreams and my decision about moving forward.
I enjoyed this article so much, that I am sharing it with you !
Dream BIG and create the new circles to help you move toward those dreams!

Circle Of Support – by Joe Vitale
Mark Ryan and I took a road trip two weeks ago. His wife was expecting a baby and I wanted to check out the Scorpion hydrogen sports car being built near me. We both wanted a little time out of the house.
On the hour long drive we talked about many things. One of them was how people stay stuck without new support.
If someone has a circle of friends that keeps them feeling that they can’t have much more in their lives, they won’t attempt to have any more.
Their immediate support group will “support” them in staying right where they are.
For example, when I was in college, most of my friends felt the only way to increase their income was to get a better job. Everyone I talked to felt the same way.
That’s because my circle was thinking the same way. We all believed the same thing. We supported each other in being stuck.
In my forthcoming audio program, The Awakening Course, I explain that most people are in the first stage of life: victimhood.
They feel stuck, they attract people that feel the same way, and so the state of being a victim continues. It’s simply reinforced.
For example, I saw an old friend in Ohio. He told me he could never have the life I have. When I asked why, he basically said it wasn’t possible for him.
Now, I could talk to him for hours about new realities and new possibilities if he just read The Attractor Factor or watched the movie The Secret and learned more about the Law of Attraction.
But when I left, he would turn to his current family and friends, or to his coworkers, ask them what they think, and they would reinforce his original belief that it wasn’t possible for him.
He would then shrug his shoulders and say, “See? It isn’t possible for me.”
You can change, of course.
In The Awakening Course I say the right story can awaken you to the next stage, and I tell several to help you awaken from the trance of limitation.
But a faster and more permanent way to change is to attract people who support your dreams.
Today my circle of friends generally believes nothing is impossible.
We don’t know what our limits are, don’t pay too much attention to current reality, and try for whatever we want. My circle supports that thought process, so it’s easier to move forward with even the biggest dreams and goals.
For example, right now I’m planning a movement to end homeslessness. No one in my circle thinks I’m nuts. Instead, they encourage me.
However, if I talk to the homeless, they feel they are stuck. When they talk to their circle, they agree they are stuck.
But when I talk to them, I introduce a new reality, one that supports their advancement. If they listen to me, and if they or I create a new circle of support for them, they can and will change.
And here’s how magic happens once you make a decision and take action..
At the airport on the way to Chicago, I stumbled across a book called Until It’s Gone, which is about ending poverty in this country. The basic idea is to create new circles of support. This book and the author’s model for change will help me end homelessness.
Again, if you are stuck, most likely you have a circle of friends and family that help you stay there. They aren’t doing it on purpose. They aren’t trying to hold you down. And you are participating by allowing it to happen.
This has to change for you to change.
There’s no one to blame here. You don’t need to fire your family or friends. (Then again, maybe you do.) But you do need to take responsibility for where you are and make new decisions to change what you don’t like.
You need an encouraging support team. So do those in poverty. So do the homeless. So does anyone trying to overcome any challenge.
Mark and I talked about this and realized a good reason to attend events is to have support. You are placed in an environment of encouragement. You meet new people. You create mastermind groups and new circles of friends. These can last a lifetime.
I’m hosting the Miracles Weekend at the end of September for this reason. If you haven’t signed up for it yet, you can at www.miraclesweekend.com/register
Everyone who attends the event will receive The Awakening Course, including two bonuses: The Awakened Millionaire and Awakened Relationships. They will also receive the new expanded edition of The Attractor Factor. And each person will receive a ticket to Pat O’Bryan’s Unseminar 6. Again, register at www.miraclesweekend.com/register (I’ll keep the price at $997 for you, since you found the offer on my blog.)
Our road trip went well.
I ordered a Scorpion and Mark’s baby was born.
It’s a girl named Claire.
I imagine she’ll do wonders in the world, due to all the support she will receive from her circle of family and friends — all of which believe in and even expect miracles.
Ao Akua,
Joe

I have just learned about this terrific site Get Rich Slowly Here is a fascinating post about Thirteen Steps to a Better Life — lots of great suggestions for how to be happier.

I was playing a game with myself to choose 2 steps I like the most, and I chose:
Join a group and help others.
Being around people, feel a part of a community and help others grow, have been a constant source of happiness for me.
What are your top 2? (I know it’s hard to choose 😉 )

“One day at a time – this is enough. Do not look back and grieve over the past, for it is gone: and do not be troubled about the future, for it has not yet come. Live in the present, and make it so beautiful that it will be worth remembering.”

Today, 7 years ago, My husband, my boys and myself were flying back from Israel to the USA. It was 6:00am at the Newark airport, and we were sitting at the Continental club watching the sunrise. It was beautiful morning and I still remember looking at New York skyline, absorbing the beauty of it, and especially the WTC towers.

Around 7:00am we were on the airplane on our way to San Francisco. Just another flight, or so it seems, but very soon we learned it was about to be a very different one…

To this day, I remember the feeling when we were told that the pilot has been instructed to land ASAP. we didn’t know why, but we landed in Grand Rapids Michigan. At that point, cell phones started to ring, and we, the passengers learned about the horrible terror attacks. We were shivering, thinking how lucky we are to be alive. others were not as fortunate.

9/11 is a very special day for me and my family. It is one of these days that I stop and remember how precious life really is, how fragile life can be,and why we out to live every day fully.

Here are the 7 lessons I learned that day:

  1. Be grateful for being alive
  2. Enjoy every moment you are here
  3. Love as much as you can
  4. Laugh as much as you can
  5. Put things in perspective
  6. Live your passion
  7. Today is the time to do something meaningful

Treasure life, knowing that every day, is a second change for a better life!

All my love, Relli

You know how some weeks are just suck?
I had one of these weeks this week, and I feel that life is too much! So, this week so many things went wrong that I don’t know what the heck happened!

So, this is how it went – On Monday when my husband was on his way back from camping with the boys, he called me up and say: “ I broke my tooth”. Well, I knew that this is not a good thing, for his teeth and our budget!

Then, on Wed, while taking the kids to eat at Fresh Choice, my dear son took out his retainer ($500) and put it on the tray so he can eat… guess what? You are right! He forgot it there, on the tray! By the time we came home I realized that something was missing, and yes, it was lost. I rushed to the phone, called the restaurant and the lady already told me that they took ALL the garbage to the big bin! Just my luck! First my husband, now my son…. I was so pissed!

On Thu, My daughter had her first ‘professional’ (pricey) ballet class. This is a fancy place she insisted on going to, since her best friend it taking ballet classes there. Sure enough we are arriving to the studio and she refuse to get into the class! “Why?” I asked, and she said ‘I don’t like it”. So, I kept asking:” what don’t you like?” and she said:”the wall color!”

I was about to explode! This 5 years old doesn’t want to take the class because the color of the wall?! What the heck is going on here? Anyway, with my lack of sleep, my growing belly I marched to the office and asked for the cancellation policy. Of course, those great places will not give a dime back… so here I am, stuck with a class that my daughter doesn’t want to take because she doesn’t like the wall color… go figure.

When I came back home, I picked up my son from school and took him to the orthodontic clinic to see what can be done. I knew that walking in there will be for one reason only – to put new NON REMOVABLE braces on my wonderful child teeth… Sure enough, here I am watching my bills grow exponentially!

Nice week ha?

So, I am thinking to myself – what did I do to attract that? I am not sure….still working on this one!

Just got this story from my friend Jenniem, had to share!
I am dedicating this story to all the moms who are doing an AMAZING job!
Just got this story from my friend Jennie, and I had to share 🙂

man came home from work and found his three children outside, still in their pajamas, playing in the mud, with empty food boxes and wrappers strewn all around the front yard. The door of his wife’s car was open, as was the front door to the house and there was no sign of the dog.
Proceeding into the entry, he found an even bigger mess.
A lamp had been knocked over, and the throw rug was wadded against one wall. In the front room the TV was on loudly with the cartoon channel, and the family room was strewn with toys and various items of clothing.
In the kitchen , dish es filled the sink, breakfast food was spilled on the counter, the fridge door was open wide, dog food was spilled on the floor, a broken glass lay under the table, and a small pile of sand was spread by the back door. He quickly headed up the stairs, stepping over toys and more piles of clothes, looking for his wife. He was worried she might be ill, or that something serious had happened.
He was met with a small trickle of water as it made its way out the bathroom door.. As he peered inside he found wet towels, scummy soap and more toys strewn over the floor. Miles of toilet paper lay in a heap and toothpaste ha d been smeared over the mirror and walls.
As he rushed to the bedroom, he found his wife still curled up in the bed in her pajamas, reading a novel.
She looked up at him, smiled and asked how his day went. He looked at her bewildered and asked, ‘What happened here today?’ She again smiled and a nswered, ‘You know every day when you come home from work and you ask me what in the world I do all day? ”Yes,” was his incredulous reply. She answered, ‘Well, today I didn’t do it.’
