Welcome to this month's edition of the Clarity Success Coaching
This month I am inspired to write about reaching out.
It has been a bit of a theme in my life during the last month
and maybe it is a message that you need to hear at this time.
During the past month the power of reaching out to support
others and reaching out for support has been very evident to
It started when an amazing young woman named Emily Payne
asked a number of people including me to support her in her
effort to raise enough money to fund a trip to India where she
could give time during her summer vacation to go to Calcutta
and work with some of the most needy children in the world. I
was inspired by Emily who, at 17 years of age, epitomizes what
can happen when the compassion to reach out to help is
combined with the courage of asking for help.
asked me for a donation of money. I was pleased to support her
There are so many ways to help others and giving money is
one of them but I wondered what other ways I could support
this teenaged girl from a small community who has a more
global vision than most people, let alone most high school
aged people. I decided to donate my time as a speaker. I
volunteered to do my "Star Within You" presentation in a
public forum and the price of admission was a donation to
Emily's cause. I asked for the support of the people who
receive this newsletter. I received help from one of the
Private Clubs that I do work with. Beach Grove Golf and
Country Club donated their ball room and the refreshments for
the people who attended. Many of the people who received the
information about the evening came and in a small way reached
out to some children in a land far away that they most likely
will never meet. Some who could not attend sent Emily some
money. The ones who attended were treated to the opportunity
to hear the passion of this young woman who will make a
difference in this world. I am sure that everyone in
attendance left asking themselves the question "What
difference will I make?"
I reached out for support so we as a community could
support others. Thank you so much to all of you that answered
I am writing this on a ferry trip from
Vancouver Island to Vancouver on an idyllic day. I am very
grateful for the day, the natural beauty we are sailing
through and the experience that Rose and I are coming
We have just participated in a modern day barn
raising. Friends of ours had the courage to ask three other
couples to help them undertake a major painting project in
their home. We had so much fun working hard together, feasting
on great food and enjoying each others company. It was so
gratifying to look at the difference we made in our friends
home but imagine what it is like have friends that you know
will support you when you need it.
My challenge to you as your Coach is spend some time
thinking about some answers to these questions.

4 Ounces to Heaven: A Search for the Energy of
By Thomas Stirr
On a recent journey to
Toronto, Ontario, Canada for some speaking engagements I had
the chance to meet the author of this self published book that
might be hard to find but is definitely worth reading.
The content of the book ties in with my thoughts in
the body of the newsletter.
It is a book about the
chance meetings of an unlikely group of collaborators who come
together to give hope to a group of people who are feeling
hopeless and worthless. They reach out to make a difference to
this group and the world.
Ultimately by doing so they
make a profound difference in their own lives.

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".
The Happy HealthyRegister now and change your
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. It takes nine
weeks to play the game and we play it virtually, over the
telephone on a bridge line. The Happy Healthy 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 sustainable results.
