When you are obsessively devoted to helping other people… you will be surprised one day when the whole world knows what you stand for. If you are trying to get people to take notice of you… you will always have a difficult time. But when you go out of your way to give of yourself in service to others for the right reasons… the world will know who you are…and will come knocking at your door.

I just witnessed the most amazing thing… John Luke General Manager of the Minneapolis Hilton brought his entire executive team over to cheer on the Hotel Ivy graduation of their key executives!

John spoke and it was totally unexpected but he gave a very powerful meaningful talk from his heart… this was nothing short of amazing how we can make a difference in our communities!

It takes us supporting each other and willing to walk across town to support each other. John Luke welcomed the new graduates and committed to The Ivy Executives wanting to work together to make Minneapolis a greater city!

John shared that when he found out that the executives of the Hotel Ivy were graduating… he said he instructed his own executive team to figure out how to get their duties covered and he marched his whole team through the skyways to come over to the Hotel Ivy.

This is the first time I have seen two competing properties come together like this and it wasn’t about business… it was about celebrating the human spirit and recognition that lives have been transformed for the better…this is what need more of in this world

The energy in the room was incredible and electric… and it was nothing short of powerful to see the Hilton Executives cheering on the Hotel Ivy executives.

I am personally grateful for having the opportunity to attend on team the last two days… it was good for me to be in the positive energy that was created in this room this evening! Even though I have been a founder of this program… I found myself rethinking many things and I am not embarrassed to say this was very much needed in my life. Don’t be above sharing your own gifts in helping others experience this wonderful life transformational experience!

James and Brandon did an amazing outstanding job… I am very proud of their effort and truly they are world class trainers!

I’ve been pondering new thoughts and reading my old writings as I’m preparing to write my next book.  I came across the Candles and Cake theory and just had to get it out there to share!

If you were sitting at a table with another person and you each had a piece of cake in front of you… if you each ate your cake you would be happy… but you could never enjoy the benefits of eating the other person’s cake. If you wanted to enjoy more than your cake… you would have to take away the other person’s cake.

Unfortunately you might not enjoy the benefits of eating both pieces of cake because you might feel guilty in eating the other person’s cake but they would be unhappy as well because they didn’t get to eat their cake and enjoy it… plus the fact…they might also get mad at you for taking their cake!  A lot of unhappiness is caused by scarcity in this example.

If you were sitting at a table with another person and they had an unlit candle in front of them and you had a lighted candle… you could use your candle to light their candle. In lighting the other person’s candle you would not use up your energy and in addition, you created happiness or Added Value for the other person. Two  candles is double the energy and they light up the whole room so many more people can enjoy the benefits. This also explains the Multiplier Effect of Added Value.

No matter if you are broke or well off… the best way to live is in Profit Mindset! Even if you don’t have any money right now… you can always give more than what is expected. From this day forth…start living in the increase!
