Struggling with Change? It is easier than you think!

February 1st, 2012

Always changing - and beautiful!

Every day we need to ask WHAT DO I WANT?  You know what I found out when I asked myself that?  I was not exactly exactly sure.

Ask yourself – if I could have exactly what I wanted right now – what would it be?  $4000, a new car?  Then what?  Does that make you happy for the LONG RUN?

This book is about getting comfortable with keeping up the change to be as happy and prosperous as we CAN be – ongoing!

Check us out on Amazon Kindle – take it on loan, the new program on Amazon.  You can change your attitute about change.  If it is not – “I am excited about change!”  You could be holding yourself back from greater and greater success – starting now!

Need Change? Looking for new inspiration?

November 15th, 2010

Many of the challenges coming up in the current economy are holding people back and bringing up old fears.  If you find some of this happening to you, tap into some age old wisdom.  Scroll down and watch the short video.  We all need a boost and help to restart or change.  Did you know that Walt Disney went bankrupt 4 or 5 times in his lifetime, but it did not stop him from reaching his dream.  He also had a support team which may call a MasterMind team. 

If you are wondering how to get the excitement back in your business or your life – read the short chapter on this website and consider ordering the hardback or the Kindle version of these true stories to reinspire you to go for your dreams, recapture your personal power, make that change – and have fun doing it!!

How to stay relaxed and find your purpose

July 10th, 2010

Have you ever noticed that you are most relaxed when you first wake up?  This is one of the best times to catch your deeper consciousness which knows your purpose.  Here is how to listen:  Just before you go to sleep, decide to receive information on your purpose during the night.  Put a pad and pen on your bedstand. Then, first thing when you wake up, write down your impressions, words, pictures, thoughts or feelings.  Catch them before you start thinking about the day.  It takes practice for some, but after a couple of times, you will catch some insights.  These will help you see if you are on your path, or give you hints of what your path really is.  For more on intuition and purpose see Take the E Out of Ego and GO! chapter 7.   What is your purpose?  How did you find it?  Check our the Two for One Summer Special on our home page!  Plus we are on Amazon, also for Kindle!

Young journalist review of “Take the E Out of Ego & GO!” coming!

June 28th, 2010

“Each of your stories fit in perfectly to the message that you are sending out.”  …”I like how it was written; very easy to read and I didn’t need to be at a high intellectual level to understand the theme and deep meanings behind it.  The ego can control a lot, but you two show that  happens when the ego drops out of the race and the real leader comes to play.”  More:  see the Press Page.

Summer’s coming, Time to ride the wave of change to self empowerment

May 25th, 2010

When we feel challenged by change, fears can creep in.  Summer is a unique time to enjoy the out of doors, breath deeper and start something fresh and new!  What about a change to self empowerment?

In Go Power Point #8 Jerry says  “Don’t buck the tide, swallow your pride and jump in the water, catch the wave and ride it toward your goals.”  You don’t have to be a surfer dude to ride a wave.  But it is necessary to have a goal to ride a wave toward it!  Many of us go to the beach, float around, as we do in our life without a goal.

Try something this summer:  set a goal to get to know yourself better, become a better friend of yourself.  That means self empowerment.  Give yourself the pat on the back of encouragement.  Enjoy the summer – take some of the power of the ocean and ride it to a goal – pick one.  Then keep catching the wave, practicing over and over till you reach it!  This will be a summer you will remember! 

PS Take the E Out of Ego & GO! Makes a wonderful graduation gift – young adults will find it a fun read with lots of sports analogies, a couple army stories, and a Handbook of keys to a successful life without ego.

Go Power Point of the Week – Trust Your Hunches

February 16th, 2010

go power pointWatch for the clues of where NOT to go and …. Don’t go there.  Trust your hunches.


If we sense something is good for us to do, we need to simply do it, and not be stubborn.  This is like trusting a hunch.  This would be an example of a balanced ego.  Even though there may be resistance or hesitation or apprehension, we can STEP UP and trust our gut.

For example, if you were to go hiking in a forest at night.  Would you ask yourself – Is there a good path that I could follow?  Do I have a planned destination?  Is there a reasonably good map?  Is it my balanced ego in charge, or is it just my Ego emotion? 

How does our ego get in the way?  If you decided to go hiking at night in a strange area, even though you didn’t know the area in the dark, could that be trying to prove something?  It is usually a form of pride, when we are determined to prove something.  It is the ego’s biggest way of influencing our actions and attitudes or how we go about something.

Many times we know from our hunches what to do, but are involved in the outer social influences, and ignore our inner feeling or hunch.  In this example if you were going to go hiking at night in an area you were not familiar, your senses would likely tell you to get a  guide or not go till daylight. When we listen from within and without we can take a moment to take assess all the options. 

Jerry often tells a story at our Go Power Workshops about the Rabbi who was lost in the forest.  He did not come home that night.  So his parishioners decided to go looking for him the next day.  When they finally found him they were elated.  However, their first words to the Rabbi were, “We are so excited to have found you, but we have one problem; we are lost!”  The Rabbi’s reply was right to the point.  “Well,” he said, “I can tell you were not to go!”

In our workshops, we don’t tell you where to go; we help you interpret your own clues about where to go or where not to go.   The experience is all about trusting and following your feelings and hunches. 

Watch for the clues of where NOT to go.  If you tune into your awareness, you will find much more power in your life when you recognize how your ego is getting in the way of you getting more out of life.  Trust your hunches, and go with your gut feelings. The next step is taking action, which we will address in one of our next articles.

Healing – Our new all natural, anti-inflammatory Healing Lotion

February 4th, 2010

As mentioned in our book  in the healing chapter, (page 135) we have had a fun filled adventure creating the new Rixx Herbal healing Lotion.   Rixx Lotion includes one of the oldest known herbal remedies in North America to heal skin and naturally sooth sore muscles, minor inflammation and pain from arthritis.

Just like having the dream for the perfect ending, this product went through it’s own evolution.  When we thought we had the final product a new door was opened for us to have a more synergistic healing lotion than we had envisioned.

Oh yes, we did have to get the “E” in ego out of the way.  It allowed us to accept an experiment with a new formula that was beyond our expectations.  So now all I can say (this is Jerry)  try it, I guarantee you’re gonna love it!

E Out of Ego Daily Insight – New Year’s Resolutions – new habits

January 14th, 2010

How about those New Year’s Resolutions?  How is everyone keeping focused?  I have certainly been tested;  in fact my Ego was quite busy getting me so nervous that I couldn’t sleep for 3 nights.  It turned out to be the easier than I thought to keep up those new habits – just hang out with people who already have that type of success (they are already there), and it gets much easier.  No more sleepless nights, I am in the groove.  How about you?
