When You think about Your OneGR8Life...
 Do You Think You Have SO Much More to Offer?
         ~If you could only figure out HOW?!?

Welcome to #YourOneGR8Life
Welcome to #CreatingPhenomenal.

#Creating Phenomenal is a seven book series. Why a series? When I started this project I thought of Napoleon Hill, and I wondered… If he were alive to today, how would he publish the classic, Think and Grow Rich. To me the answer was obvious… He’d publish it as a progressive series; allowing his readers the choice to start from the beginning, progressively building until The End. Or, allow them to find an, individually, appropriate subject/title and to begin there.

So it is with #CreatingPhenomenal, I will certainly encourage you to start at the beginning. In this way, you are able to capture the progressive essence of the Path to Obtainment of your Highest Human Potential. But, I won’t restrict you in this regard. The significance of your start is the single most important thing that you will ever do in your OneGR8Life. And, no two lives are ever the same… so start from where you are! Never forget, that to Be, Do or Give More, you will need to become more; so find an, individually, appropriate subject/title and just get started!

---      ---      ---

Rejuvenate the Spirit...

If you are like most, when you read the words, Ambition of Purpose - one of two primary reactions occur;

  1. Your Mind wants to block this out...
  2. Your pulse quickens and a funny anxiety of nervousness arises in your spirit.

There is a very simple reason for this. It's called accountability, or the lack there-of.

You see accountability requires you to have a answer, readily available. Unfortunately, most have no answer for the question; What are you looking to deliver in your OneGR8Life? Because we have no answer the Mind will appreciate it if you simply move to the next question... this is called avoidance. As a condition of convenience, the brain goes here when we have not prepared it sufficiently or when the answer to a question is larger than it is prepared to immediately resolve.

The Mind does not like being unprepared!  Unprepared is not in the operating instructions. If You allow it to, it will spend it's entire existence protecting you from things you are unprepared to answer. This is why we wrestle with HOW?!?  I would venture to estimate that 85% - 90% of us are simply unprepared to answer this.

But NOT You... I gave You a MAP. A Map to Obtainment! This Map outlines the path to the Discovery and the Delivery of your Highest Human Potential. You may not have traveled the entire path, or written the answers to every step that will be required for you to deliver your Desire of Purpose. But, You find comfort in the fact that your Map gives you both Destination and Direction. This is Extraordinarily Powerful!!

So now what?  

Now, we begin the journey to Obtainment... You do have your map... right?

A Critical Fact...

In support of our existence the creator allows each of us to Be, Do or Give, anything that we desire. This is a critical fact and worthy of restating;

-- Every Human Has Been Given the Divine Right to Pursue Something.  

In this regard, life then becomes a mission. Given this understanding of mission, we all have something, some purpose, to pursue!  It then becomes our duty to uncover our purpose... To uncover the 'something' that we are intended to pursue and deliver. With ‘purpose’ as your life duty, you can recognize the significant disappointment if you leave earth without it's obtainment.


Everyone who engages in the serious pursuit of their mission, at some point in life will uncover this truth;  Obtainment is an inside job!  Once discovered, it is what we do with this realization that greatly improves our odds of completing your mission.

If it is our Divine duty in life to uncover our 'something', our pursuit, and if Obtainment is an inside job, then we must be self-equipped with the necessary features to uncover our purpose and more importantly, to accomplish our mission. So what then is the missing link between having something to pursue and its obtainment?

I know that, you came looking for HOW?!? and I left you hanging with another question.

So, take a deep breathe, in through the nose, and exhale, out across the lips. Try it again... In / Out. There - you feel better already.

So Very Close...

I can leave you with these encouraging words...

-You are closer to your Dream, your Desire of Purpose, than you will ever imagine.

In the mean time, hold on to this thought: -I Hereby, Grant Myself permission to Think Big!  I can Be, Do, or Give Anything. Here is the beauty of my Thinking Big; Big Thoughts are as easy to come by and cost just as much energy to create as Little Thoughts. So, the best bang for my buck... is a Big Thought.

---      ---      ---

Having trouble getting started?  Never really gave Ambition of Purpose much thought in the past?

Try Answering this:
Before I leave the face of this earth I Must (Be, Do, Give)...

IT will take a little quiet time to find this answer... Shut the radio off on the drive to work - that always helps me... Watch-out for avoidance-

Now, Correct me if I am wrong...  I know that You are brilliant enough to grab a notebook or journal or to start a 'note' in your smart-phone. I am confident that You labeled it : My OneGR8Life.  I will always extend a hand to 'help' you, but, I CANNOT do the work for you!

CreatingPhenomenal: The Map to Obtainment

A couple of summer’s ago, my wife and I journeyed to France and then into Italy. We enjoyed it so much that we repeated the journey in back to back summers. So much to see, so much to do, so many wonderful faces to greet along the way. I really have to applaud my wife, because both trips were self-guided tours. Neither of us had ever explored Europe, We don’t have family there, we had never hopped on a train for inter-city or regional transportation.

There were a couple of things that we did carry with us to insure a safe and enjoyable trip;

  • the first thing we carried was, AMBITION. Ambition to just figure it out as we went along. We knew a couple of things like, when and where our air travel was scheduled - we knew that we were not going to rent a car. Other than that we really had no idea. We had accommodations and an itinerary, but no clue about things like just how far the walk was going to be from the train depot to the hotel. The look on the cabbies face when we pulled into the Rome terminal and asked to be driven 4 blocks… ooops!  Or which train to catch to get from Nice to Menton.
  • the second thing we carried was, A MAP. I am always amazed at how many people will plan to the infinite degree for a two week holiday of foreign travel yet, walk completely blindfolded through their life.

The Creating of Phenomenal is no different. YourOneGR8Life is not intended to be a crap-shoot of gambled opportunities. YourOneGR8Life is intended to be filled with discovery, pursuit and delivery of purpose. The Obtainment of your Highest Human Potential, does require a road map. The stumbling block is finding one.

So let’s fix this… Right Here, Right Now!

Creating Phenomenal...
The Journey of a 1000 miles begins with a single step. So it is with the discovery, pursuit and delivery of our Highest Human Potential.  Before we start, lets check to make sure we have all the essential provisions for such an Ambitious journey.

1) Highest Human Potential... Obtainment of your Highest Human Potential; this is your Divine Purpose!
2) Divine Significance... The transformation of purpose, replaces the attainment reaction cycle. This transformation flows outward from within us; in exchange for our life on earth we are to uncover and give our life purpose. Our give is significant for the improvement of the human condition.
3) Fortitude...  Your significance was handed to you Divinely with the cutting of the umbilical cord. Your Highest Human Potential is Obtained through the transformation of your unique Divinely granted purpose. This Divine Purpose; You cannot give it back... you cannot bury it in the backyard... you cannot run from it... you can only deliver it.

GREAT! We have everything and it all seems to be in order!  Ready?

Oh Yeah... The MAP.  Silly ME!

The Creating Phenomenal Map will outline a repeatable and reusable process for the Obtainment of your Highest Human Potential. I have used and refined this map over the course of the past 20-25 years. At one point of refinement, I used it for my sales team of 10, to move us from our #87/100 ranking to top 6 in less than 12 months. I am confident that you will find extreme value in it and that you will find many points of application in your life.

Let's Start Here~

Obtainment Defined...

OBTAINMENT: The External Radiation from within
of Highest Human Potential; the fulfillment Ambition
of Divine Purpose. The utilization of internal virtues
for the transformation of a notion, idea or thought,
to a Desire of Purpose, to Be, Do or Have,
into its Physical Equivalence.

Map of Obtainment...
Just as every road trip and holiday travel plan includes a destination... so does your life! We Start here because we should never forget Obtainment as the Destination. This is why you unloaded from your back-pack all of your past circumstance of frustrations. This is why you will continue to add stones of greater value as you travel the path.

Notice that Obtainment is at the center, surrounded by a repeatable path. This is not by coincidence! The journey to Dream, Create and Live YourOneGR8Life requires stop and start points. You see, the Obtainment of your Highest Human Potential, the delivery of your Divine Purpose, will have many foreseen and unforeseen opportunities. It is paramount that you maintain the ability to pick-up where you left off. Without this feature, You WILL continue to walk in hopelessness and aimlessly. You cannot afford to let this happen! From this day forward, You WILL now walk with Destination and Direction.

With this simple map, You have Gained the tool necessary to assure the completion of your journey. Eliminated is the Anxiety of starting, only to stop; followed by the Frustration of not knowing where to start again. Gained is the flexibility of a repeatable, and proven process.

Shall we fill in the path with easy to follow stepping stones?

A Map of Value Proposition...
Why a 'Value' Proposition?

Because this path proposes a continuum of returned value. Along this path, the more that you give, the more that you feed the process, the more it returns back to you. Before you is a loop of endless possibilities and unlimited potential.

When you come to the point of exhaustion and doubt, and trust me - You are bound to reach this point, to regenerate the cycle - you only need to pick any single stone and give from that point. As you 'give', you initiate the cycle to receive. This 'give' invigorates the Human Spirit to eliminate both exhaustion and doubt.

Behold, If at anytime along your journey to Obtainment you become completely overwhelmed in bewilderment or find yourself in a total state of progress paralysis, simply start with rejuvenated Ambition.

The First Stepping Stone: AMBITION!

We have been through this. Ambition is the Starting Point of all success. Ambition 'always' travels with Achievement and Accomplishment. Starting from here is guaranteed to initiate clarity of thought and action.

Please note: We have added a very specific note of Instruction, just below the definition of Obtainment:

Through Affirmation this Desire of Purpose is Infinitely
supported to Achievement, by Intention and Motive, in exchange
for the discovered capacity to overcome restraint while
in pursuit of improvement to the human condition.

DO NOT underestimate the power of Affirmation! DO NOT overestimate your self-confidence to remember tomorrow the journey of Obtainment that you started today. Distraction(s) are the foreseen and unforeseen activities which lead to the abandonment of initiated purpose. Thus, Always carry your map. And, continuously affirm your delivery of purpose.

Shall we connect the stones; to assure continuous passage from beginning-to-rebeginning, from Ambition-to-Rejuvenated Ambition?  

"Go Confidently in the Direction of your Dreams.
Live the OneGR8Life you have imagined and
have been Divinely granted to Deliver."
~Phillip A. Lopez

The Map!

Creating Phenomenal...
Obtainment of Your Highest Human Potential.

Creating Phenomenal is a Process, not a singular event. You will learn to find great comfort in the Simplicity of the connectivity presented here. The seamless transitions from one stone to another. Repeatable! Reusable! Pretty convenient, don't you agree?

The coordinated efforts initiated through Ambition; the transformation of a Notion, Idea or Thought into a Desire of Purpose, to Be, or Do or Have. Can you take a piece of paper, record your idea; and transform that idea into a written Desire of Purpose?

If you took this Desire of Purpose and attempted to envelop it with internal virtues required to Deliver; do you think it would lead you to the Discovery of Inspiration and Motivation?

Can you see how you have broken the 'attainment' cycle? Suddenly the added value to live has transitioned itself from an out-to-in reaction of unfillable attainment, to the in-to-out Obtainment of Divine Purpose; all this delivered so that you can add value for the Improvement of the Human Condition.

You now hold the keys to your sustained Significance. With map in hand, you are free to initiate your contribution of Divine Purpose.

What's that you ask?  HOW?!?

Not to worry... I have a tool for this!

Obtainment / The True Nature of Our Character...

“At the center of your
OneGR8Life is the
Obtainment of your
Highest Human Potential.”

                   ~Phillip A. Lopez

So, You've been thinking lately,
that You have So Much more to offer;

-- If you could only figure out - HOW?!?

Let's work on this together... ok?

The answer to HOW?!? stems
from a deeper understanding
of the differences between
our social desire to Attain
and the deeper divine
desire to Obtain.

The Subtle Differences...
The social pressure is to devalue your life through Attainment. This social pressure to attain, to touch, to reach out and grab at, drives you to experience life in reaction. In this sense, we are digging in the wrong hole. Living life in reaction, is typically void of internal purpose.

The Attainment approach presumes that in order to reach your Desire, there must be completion; the successful accomplishment of something. Enter the madness... in the attainment cycle there is NO accomplishment; there is No end. This lifestyle only desires to touch more, creating a larger void, driving the desire to touch even more, and the void only gets bigger. Recognize that this void cannot be satisfied; the desire to touch more, only produces the drive to touch more... an unending cycle.  So let's break the cycle!

I know... But, HOW?!?

At the fork in the Road...
We find ourselves at the fork fork in the road. Before us, there are only two paths, the paths are clearly marked; Attainment and Obtainment. We have already deduced the folly of leading a life driven to attainment. You know what this means? Time to REJUVENATE our spirit adventure!

That's right - There is No harm in REJUVENATING the Spirit... It's your OneGR8Life - No one says that you cannot break-out of the attainment cycle. Maybe you don't appreciate a reactionary life? Maybe you would like to 'hold' the responsibility to Dream, Create and Live the life of your choosing; versus the life being fed to you in reaction? The reasons to break-out of the attainment cycle are as unique as your finger-prints, and as plentiful as the stars. Your life has greater value than any object which can be touched in attainment!

So what do you think, do we need a map to outline the path to Obtainment? I think yes, - a map to outline the path to obtainment would be highly effective and extraordinarily useful. Do you know where we can find this map? Do you know if such a map even exist? Has anyone ever shared with you the knowledge of having ever seen such a map? Come on then, we'll need to start somewhere...

“The Choices I make Reveal

the True Nature of My Character.”

The Holding of Highest Human Potential...
Obtainment of your Highest Human Potential; this is your Divine Purpose! The Obtainment of your Divine Purpose is NOT some'thing' that you can acquire/purchase; you cannot Attain this in the form of collection, you cannot touch your notion, idea or thought of Divine Purpose. Divine Purpose is something we Obtain; we 'hold' within us our Desire of Purpose in the form of a notion, idea or thought. Your Highest Human Potential is the utilization of your divinely granted abilities to transform your 'Purpose' into its physical equivalence - Something to BE, or to DO, or to HAVE. 

Hold on, Now... HOW?!? can I recognize the true nature of my Purpose?

The choices that you make reveal the true nature of your character. It is Character that reveals your destiny of Purpose. The Freedom of Choice to select your character virtues is extraordinarily significant in your human desire to hold self-sustained Joy and Happiness. Purpose is recognized by two very distinct characteristics; Destination and Direction. The trick is to find a method to match your needed Character Virtues, your WHO, with your choice of Destination (WHAT) and Direction (HOW). 

Remember this,
"If You First you determine WHO, then
WHAT and HOW must follow!"

How Phenomenal is that?

Divine Significance...
The transformation of purpose, replaces the attainment reaction cycle. This transformation flows outward from within us; in exchange for our life on earth we are to uncover and give our life purpose. Our give is significant for the improvement of the human condition. In this way Divine Purpose transcends to incorporate the greatest potential of all understood dogma or creed. In this light of knowledge, it becomes understandable as to why your purpose must be delivered as contribution to the completion of the larger universal puzzle; each piece being unique and there are no spare pieces! Each one of us has a contribution to make in the form of Divine Purpose. In this regard, there can be no completion without your contribution, the delivery of your piece, your purpose.

You are Important! You are Divinely significant; nobody can strip this significance away from you without your consent. Your significance was handed to you Divinely with the cutting of the umbilical cord. Your Highest Human Potential is Obtained through the transformation of your unique Divinely granted purpose. You cannot give it back... you cannot bury it in the backyard... you cannot run from it...  you can only deliver.

Obtainment Defined...
To date, we have invested a good amount of energy on;

All of these things bring us to the apex of defining Obtainment.

The External Radiation from within
of Highest Human Potential; the fulfillment Ambition
of Divine Purpose. The utilization of internal virtues
for the transformation of a notion, idea or thought,
to a Desire of Purpose, to Be, Do or Have,
into its Physical Equivalence.

Read through this definition a couple of times. Link back to the previously shared topics. Now that you know where you are going, a quick double-back for a re-read will have so much more to offer.

Mindful Moments (Thoughts for You to Take Away…)
My Divinely granted Purpose is the truest source of my self-sustained Joy and Happiness; the truest source of my significance. My lifetime significance will Not Be Based on what I attain in life; the car I drive, the purse I carry, the suit I wear. My life-long happiness will not be found in a chair, in an office up top on the 52nd floor, or in a title of professional achievement. If I continue digging in this direction, at best, I will find a sense of temporary satisfaction. At life's end my fulfillment will not be found in a bank account, or from a garage filled with Maserati's.

Early on, I want to recognize that Obtainment of my Highest Potential will not be a matter of luck or the breaks. I will have to work, and at times I will be asked to work hard. The requirement of luck or a break would imply that I must receive in order to deliver my Divine Purpose. Instead, I AM free to begin my delivery, with No Permissions required. The transformation of my Divine Purpose, the Obtainment of my Highest Human Potential, is given through-out my life; I AM free to start at my earliest convenience!

Up Next: Obtainment: A Map of Value Proposition.  

A note of Special Thanks --  
Please, accept my heartfelt Thanks for being there,
for allowing me into your OneGR8Life!!

#CreatingPhenomenal ~ How to Dream, Create, Live, Your One Great Life.

Tuesday, September 2, 2014


“It is Your AMBITION,
Your Willingness to Serve,
which Differentiates Your Greatness as
a Successful Person.
In Your OneGR8Life, You are Called to
Discover and Deliver Your Greatness.”
~Phillip A. Lopez

Mission and Goal; INTENTION releases PHENOMENAL!

Over the past couple of weeks we have been engaging in a fairly active conversation, Creating Phenomenal. Before we get into today's post, It is important to me that you recognize that this conversation has a primary mission; To Improve the Human Condition, Specifically, Yours! Nothing more, Nothing less.

The goal of this conversation, is to add value to your life and to assist in your Creation of Phenomenal. Where does Phenomenal exist?
Phenomenal is engineered; as a repeatable life-style patterned to produce self-sustained Joy and Happiness. We use this life-style pattern for the development and transformation of your OneGR8Life; to Dream it, Create it, Live it! In this transformation we are able to focus the intention of the Human Operating System (HOS), towards the Obtainment of your Highest Human Potential.

The Event of Life...

We have shared the fact that each life has an embedded and deliverable, Purpose. The agents of Intended delivery are Courage and the Action of Intended Purpose. Intended Purpose supports our very existence through the creators allowance for each of us to Be, Do or Have anything which we desire; That, every Human Being has been given the Divine right to pursuit and deliver Something. This pursuit enhances life through mission. It then becomes our duty to uncover the Dream of Purpose, to Create it, and Live it!

The question of the ages is HOW?!?

The Process...

I have dedicated my purpose to understand HOW?!?  For 30+ years I have attempted to answer this question; I have not been disappointed! As with every opportunity of question, we are delivered an answer. It is my Intention to outline a repeatable and reusable process for the Obtainment of your Highest Human Potential.

Who might be most interested in this shared message?
  • If you think that You have much more to offer, if you could only figure out HOW?!? You will be interested!
  • If you are employed and you are attempting to navigate your career, and you need to figure out HOW?!? You will be interested!
  • If you are self-employed and you are fighting the good fight but, are wondering HOW?!? do I sustain Purpose, Joy and Happiness… You will be interested!
  • Recently Divorced and you are bewildered with HOW?!? You will be interested!
  • Faced with a major life altering event and HOW?!? looms like a dark cloud… You will be interested!
  • New to College and reality is pounding at the door, where HOW?!? is upon you like a nightmare...You will be interested!

Know anybody that fits any of these profiles? Invite them to join us!

What’s in it for you? There are a couple of key components, I need to make sure we have a keen understanding of... So here is the post lay-out for next three weeks…

         Today, 09/02 - Intention
         Week 2, 09/09 -- Obtainment, defined
         Week 3, 09/16 --- Obtainment, A Map of Value Proposition.

Intention Rules the Universe…

There should be little doubt in our minds surrounding the truth of this statement. As it is The Creator's intention that all human life obtain their Highest Potential; The Creator has placed every living thing, at the footsteps of mankind. As reinforcement, in the spirit of Intended Accomplishment, The Creator then embellishes mankind with the greatest of all gifts... The Freedom of Choice.

That mankind inherit the responsibility of free choice, represents unchangeable support and confidence, in the Creator's desire that we are to solve for HOW?!? and to achieve our Highest Potential. This extends to the responsibility of every human to uncover and deliver their unique Purpose. You must understand that it is Your earthly duty to Choose 'anything' which You Desire to Be, Do or Have and, to deliver this choice.

I know, it seems pretty unfathomable...  Anything?

ANYTHING!!!  - Pretty remarkable...  Don't you agree?

Support of this fundamental comes through the Natural Laws of Physics and Meta-Physics... Newton's Laws of Action/Reaction, Cause and Effect, Motion and Equilibrium; even the natural Law of Attraction.

Creating Phenomenal, is a Process, not an Event  - Is there any doubt that, this is Your OneGR8Life? That you are responsible to Dream it, Create it, Live it? That You are responsible for -the development of your life; the irreplaceable usage of time for, -the discovery and delivery of purpose? to self-sustain Joy and Happiness? 

Yes, It is on You to figure out... HOW?!?

Join us next week  --  Obtainment, Defined...

If you are finding this to be helpful, beneficial and effective -
then, invite a friend to join us...
