Hope For the Future

"If you want to build a ship, don't herd people together to collect wood and don't assign them tasks and work, but rather teach them to long for the endless immensity of the sea." -- Antoine de Saint-Exupery

If you've been paying attention at all to the news, you've likely noticed that there are lots and lots of things to worry about -- from man made disasters such as the deficit, antibiotic resistant viruses, crumbling housing market, weak dollar, extinction of polar bears, to the acts of nature such as tsunamis, earthquakes, hurricanes, et cetera. I could go on, but I've decided to make a very conscious decision to nurture the beautiful things in life and positively impact the present.

I will admit, it's a challenge. We are pushed on every front to interact with fear and scarcity. In life, it is my desire to act as a catalyst for abundance, courage, beauty and and strength, by way of self-persuasion as a way to shift reality. I am doing this by switching the frames of everyone I come in contact with.

This is all to say that I'm opening up myself to new ventures. I will always, first and foremost be your go to man for persuasion. Part of persuasion, learning persuasion, teaching persuasion, has always been about hope and abundance, especially in a world that seems sadly lacking in both. This renewed focus is about filling the void and not with stuff (though, I do love stuff -- technology and books especially) but to begin to excavate the inner depths with old and new resources and aligning with the proper mindset.

The law of resonance is very simple. An example: two office workers sit next to each other eight, nine hours a day. One is upbeat, positive, happy and friendly. The other is depressive, negative, frustrated and anti-social. With resonance, unconsciously one or both of them will begin to drift towards the other's state of being. So either the negative person will begin to elevate their mood or the positive person will start to become depressed (or angry because of the shift) or both will begin moving in the direction of the other and somewhere in between they will "resonate".

As a teacher, it is one of my goals to bring the law of resonance to the consciousness of my students, so that events and people around you are no longer capable of pulling down your energy. The vibration of everything affects you and fortunately, these vibrations can be changed and brought up to meet you, but only if you are mindful and deliberate about making that happen.

This isn't to say there won't be moments where you need a little support in life, some fortification, someone to build you up when you have challenges. And I am geared to be that for you. I'm relentless about enriching our lives through pure, unadulterated hope.

If you have eyes to see them, there are opportunities everywhere. Problems contain the seeds to their solutions. We all have seeds that we can plant and nurture and bring into focus what we want to draw into our lives.

My goal is to teach you to long for the endless immensity of the sea.
