Inspiring Your Authentic Week


Posted: 10 Dec 2007 02:24 AM CST

I have been looking for a partner to collaborate with for several years and I have finally found Judy.  Judy’s work and style is entirely complimentary to mine while our philosophies are almost identical.  I would describe Judy’s work as specializing in the “crisis to good” zone, while I tend to focus on the “good to great” area – although we both do the full spectrum as well.

Judy founded a service called Second Aid thirty years ago to help people who had dramatic life change imposed on them through events such as illness or injury.  Judy and I are collaborating to offer the Total Potential Retreat, which starts on the 7th of January, in Mallorca.

Individually we can make a difference, through collaboration we can change the world.

True collaboration requires a very special relationship.  It requires love, trust and alignment.  We cannot expect to have this kind of relationship with everyone we meet, or everyone we have a cool idea with, it is a special relationship – a little like choosing a life partner.  I am thrilled to have found someone else to challenge me, inspire me, teach me and collaborate with me.

By way of introduction I have asked Judy to contribute to this weeks e-mail:

“Neil kindly asked me to guest the inspiration letter this week.   As you may know he and I are merging our services into an updated form within ‘Total Potential’.

This week it is helpful to compare discrepancies between how you feel towards what is occurring within you, and the happenings that are reflected back to you from others.   The love and forgiveness that you extend to all those you come across can reflect how well you are growing internally yourself.   If you want some particular characteristic within a relationship with another, then we have to take the responsibility for being able to give that state to others first before it will be mirrored back to us.

Being good-humoured attracts good humour, love attracts love, and generosity attracts the generous and so on.  We can conduct a personal inventory as to how we want to appear to others and them to us by listing at least three qualities and monitoring our internal capacity to gift those qualities both at home and at work.   Others will reflect back to us how well we are doing.

At the start of the day focus on how you want your life to be for a few minutes while in the shower or brushing your teeth.   Envisage the day, as you would like it to be then as you go to bed at night examine how the events of the day matched up to your criteria.   Gradually with practice throughout the week that which you want to attract will begin to manifest in the external environment.  And if not this week then next just keep on keeping on until it does.”

Plan an inspirational new year for yourself – why not kick it off with a little time at the Total Potential Retreat to get that clarity of purpose.

And give someone a really profound gift this Christmas with a copy of Seven Stages of Authenticity.

much love

‘Until there is commitment, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back,
always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation),
there is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas
and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then
providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would
never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues forth from
the decision, raising in one’s favour all manner of unforeseen incidents
and meetings and material assistance which no man could have dreamed would
have come his way. Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin
it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. Begin it now!’
