Master Your Mindset For Your Successful Lifestyle.
Create Your Compelling Future
Victor Frankl, psychologist and author of man’s search for meaning, said; “Everyone has his own specific vocation or mission in life; everyone must carry out a concrete assignment that demands fulfillment. Therein he cannot be replaced, nor can his life be repeated, thus, everyone’s task is unique as his specific opportunity to implement it.”
As a young boy I had a poster on the wall in my room. It was a picture of a very busy and crowded city street. The city was full of confusion: people everywhere, crowded streets, with signs and billboards. The words across the top of the poster ask the question, Why am I here?
My question to you is why are you here? What is your purpose on this earth? Maybe you’ve asked yourself that question before. Maybe you know your purpose but you’ve never made the decision to act on it. Peter Drucker, management consultant, educator, and author of management by objectives, says; “The best way to predict the future is to create it.”
The majority of people never live a life of purpose because it takes hard work and discipline. Most people just settle for what comes along. They live the life of quiet desperation. They talk about what they should do and dream big dreams, but never go forward. A life without action is a life without purpose. Success has been studied and researched for years. We have more information on success today than ever before and one outstanding similarity is that the winners in life all have a major definite purpose. You see, it’s your purpose that keeps you in a forward motion.
Your purpose gives you momentum. We need to know that we are growing and making a contribution. Each time you reach a goal your self-esteem will grow and then you’ll build on that accomplishment, like an avalanche it will grow as it pushes forward. That’s why winners have goals and a major purpose for their life.
Tony Robbins, life coach and inspirational speaker on leading a successful life, says, “People are not lazy. They simply have impotent goals – that is, goals that do not inspire them.” Some people have a goal to get up and go to work.
Go back home set down in front of the television, have a couple of beers and go to bed, only to do the same thing the next day and the next day and the next day. Like a washing machine that only washes on one cycle, they fall into a pattern of neglect -- neglecting their inspiration. It only takes a moment to turn the dial, and increase the level of inspiration, or choose a small goal to snap your life out of the same wash cycle.
If you don’t have a major purpose in your life, you will always be bound under the power of the people who do. I believe that many people you find in hospitals, prisons, and in the court system are without a major definite purpose. Without purpose you have no compelling future to look forward to. Without a compelling future you give up on life and find yourself in a state of mind that’s not productive. And through the law of attraction and focus you attract more depression and more of the things you really don’t want.
“Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure...than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.” ..Theodore Roosevelt
When you find your purpose you find who you are.... what you are.... and most importantly why you are! In the end it is not what you say or what you plan for. And it is not what you intend or what you hope for. It is What You Do that makes the difference. A life without action is a life without purpose. Live your life on purpose each day. Ask the question...why am I here? What talents, skills and abilities do you have that you can contribute to others in an eloquent way? Serve others and serve yourself.

~ Learn To Fail Fast ~
You don’t need people to approve you or agree with you and you don’t have to follow the crowd. By making the choice to fulfill a goal or a dream you set in motion a chain of events that will lead you to your focused wants. You will have times when you'll think you don't have the courage or the strength to move forward. You'll have times when things will roll on like clockwork. The hardest times will be when you have a shortcoming, a short term failure. The people who are the most successful in this world are the ones who failed the most too. So learn to fail faster and get the failures out of the way. Every time you have a failure you are one step closer to your goal, assuming of course that when you make a mistake you take what you have learned and change your approach and move forward. Failure is a tool to help us refine our approach on the way to our goals. Failure is only failure if we don't learn something from it. The power is in you, use it now!
Lynn’s presentation to our youth was inspiring and well accepted by those present. He has a very comfortable style of speaking that brings him and the listeners on the same level of understanding. He speaks from many personal experiences and therefore, he opens himself up and reveals his own character, successes and flaws. This in turn makes him genuine and influential because the youth can identify with him. His humor and stories drew the youth in and I believe his message was clearly heard.

Not knowing when life will hit you from the blindside and knock you to your knees will be some of the hardest hits you can take. But, Knowing you have the resolve to get back up, to get back in the game is where your power is found.
Makes no difference where you find yourself in Life......You are not stuck with you. ~ Zig Ziglar
