Welcome to this month's edition of the Clarity Success Coaching
Here we are approaching the end of March, the end of
the first quarter of 2005. I truly hope that you're having an
extraordinary start to this year. I am just back from a great
trip to the Club Managers' Association of America conference
in New Orleans where I was able to speak twice and also had
the opportunity to do 40 hours of coaching while I was there.
I am just amazed by the number of inspirational people I get
to work with. This first quarter of this year for me has shown
great evidence of how blessed I am and how fortunate I am in
my life. Certainly the fact that my mother recovered from her
health problems and the fact that my children are all
venturing into their lives of young adulthood confirm this.
I'm married to an amazing woman who just celebrated a landmark
birthday. And my awareness of how coaching can elevate the
lives of people is moving to the forefront.
One of the biggest lessons that I have received this
quarter, and I hope you get it today, is the power of focus.
As you know I am leading and playing a game called the Happy
Healthy We*althy game. In the game each player chooses a happy
goal, a healthy goal and a wealthy goal to focus on for the
duration of the game. It is been so amazing to see how two of
the three goals that I have been focusing on have had amazing
results that are beyond my expectations. In early February in
this newsletter I reported that I had started a health program
and I can now tell you that my goal of reaching 175 pounds has
been surpassed. A year ago I was 188 pounds today I'm 166
pounds. My cholesterol has gone down dramatically to the point
where my doctor is happy again. And my blood pressure is back
to normal levels. The combination of focusing on what I
wanted, deciding to make it happen and getting the support I
needed to find the ways to be successful have changed who I
My other area of focus was to really concentrate on making
my wife's landmark birthday very special and honouring her
every day. We have decided that this year is officially our
'honeymoon' year and even though we've been together her for
25 years the focus on appreciating and taking care of each
other has created magical outcomes.
I recognize in my life these days that success is now just
a matter of me deciding what to focus on. I know that may
sound too simple but think about your own experience. Are you
focusing on worry? On fear? On what's possible? Whatever it is
you're focusing on, if you're honest with yourself, you'll see
that this is probably what you're getting. So the question I
have for you is this: what will you focus on? You may say,
"Where do I start? There are so many things I should be
Why not start with three things? I can tell you that if
you're trying to focus on 10 or 12 you're not all that
focused. Like the players of our game I challenge you to focus
on one happy goal, one healthy goal and one wealthy goal. When
you know what to focus on then make that critical decision
that this time it's going to happen, there is no doubt, this
is not negotiable and failure is not an option. Then get the
information and support you need and watch what happens.
You control your future, your destiny. What you
think about comes about. By recording your dreams and goals on
paper, you set in motion the process of becoming the person
you most want to be. Put your future in good hands - your

This month I'd like to recommend a movie rather than a
book. What the Bleep Do We Know?! is unlike any other
movie you'll ever see.
I've seen it five times so far and continue to learn from
it each time I see it. It's out on video and DVD now so you
can rent it, take it home and view it in the comfort of your
living room. Part documentary, part narrative and part
animation, this is a film that could possibly change your
life. Pop some corn and get comfy!
You're in for a
wild and thought provoking ride.

Have you ever gone to a seminar, got all pumped up, left
with big plans to change your life only to find yourself
slipping right back into old habits?
You are not alone. According to surveys, only 10% of
personal development books ever get read past the second
chapter and even less ever get implemented. "Why?" you ask. It
is one thing to "Know what to do"... and something entirely
different to get yourself to "Do what you know".

We*althy Game does just that.
Combining the best of both seminars and coaching, the
structure is that of an actual game with rules, prizes,
players, teammates, coaches, and competition. The Happy
We*althy Game is an experience that will help you
set your own goals, measure your achievements before and after
the 90-day game, and provide you with tools to produce
