Leaps of Faith and Love: The WHO within knows, HOW?!?

If you are running behind and didn't catch the Tuesday 12/23 post, here is your link... also, for your convenience, at the end of this post I will provide a link to the SYNC Exercise. Again, if you’re running behind and need to get caught-up, please do so. You will want to get caught-up for two reasons: (1) At this point the OneGR8Life blog is coming at you as a sequential feed; this makes the Tuesday, 12/23, post very valuable for future reference, (2) The SYNC Exercise Link is presently free, but this will expire shortly. The SYNC exercise, along with the other #CreatingPhenomenal work share exercises have always been reserved for our entrepreneur/CEO clients as part of our retained services program.

Now, I haven't taken the time to justify in my mind if the reader numbers for the 12/23 post are so high because it's that good or because it was free. Either way, I AM grateful beyond words!! Thank-You a million-times over!


I did want to dedicate an entire post to provide a little follow-up with you, based on some of your feedback. There were a couple of questions that are extremely important to address. Answering them will be helpful for you and will also, help me deliver my Desire of Purpose; Improving the Human Condition.

1) Then each of us landed on earth encoded to deliver our own 'ends'...
HOW can you be so sure about this?

This is a fair question. The answer is rooted in two very powerful values... Faith and Love.

First, Faith. In one of our previous #CreatingPhenomenal post we covered the significance of Desire of Purpose; that within each of us is the necessity to develop and deliver an embedded divine purpose. Certainly, you must have wondered, or felt at some time in your past, that your life must have some purpose; that there must be some specific purpose for your time on earth. Rest assured, your life Does Have purpose and that life purpose is valuable and irreplaceable. Faith in the fact that all life has purpose, allows you to hear Purpose from within as a Universal cry for help; to uncover, develop and deliver that purpose. From within, your delivery of purpose sees not - Age, or Gender, or Race, or Color, or Preference, or Dogma or Creed. These factors, simply, in combination, play a role in your transformation of a Notion, Idea or Thought - into it's Physical Equivalence.

Second, Love. The greatest state of existence for all life, is Love. This being the case, it is unthinkable that the source of Universal love would commission you to a journey on earth, complete with Desire of Purpose; and then fail to provide you with every last detail necessary for you to Dream, Create and Live that Purpose. Please, do not confuse this as a statement of entitlement. Instead, see it as a statement of challenge and as an opportunity of great Ambition.

The challenge is to Dream, Create and Live your Desire of Purpose. The Ambitious opportunity is to Beat the Clock - to not physically expire from life on earth without discovery and completion; without the delivery of your Purpose.

"Leap in Faith. - Rise to
Transform your Greatness in Love."
~Phillip A. Lopez

2) Round 1 - In this Round you begin with 234 values to select from...
Why 234? - Am I Limited to only these values?

234? -I'd like to tell you that there is something mystical or scientific about the number 234... it is sequential- 2, 3, 4 - Look, my educational background is Engineering, one night I woke-up and had this vision of words, columns, rows and boxes. I transformed that vision (a single, Notion, Idea or Thought) into a simple and repeatable process of elimination (a Physical Equivalence). Life is all about the choices of opportunity that you face. The things you choose to Do and the things that you choose Not to Do; these choices create the circumstance of your current reality. If you are on a quest to improve the quality of your circumstance, the method then, of choosing a unique set of values which identify WHO you need to become in order to deliver your Desire of Purpose, could be no different. It had to be all about choices and choices require elimination.

No, you are not limited to the 234 values included in the exercise. Remember, You are Responsible for the Development and Delivery of your unique Desire of Purpose. This means that You are FREE to choose, and must use, every resource that becomes available to you. If you recognize a value missing, that you believe must be added... add it as a 'wild card'. It is Your OneGR8Life, you have been invited to: Dream it, Create it, Live it! It is all about, YOU!

GLORIOUS YOU is all about the things that You choose… Your Becoming. The Dream you choose, differentiates you from every other ‘blok’ riding the subway of life. The creation of your Dream into it’s Physical Equivalence, turning your Dream into a reality is simplified by taking 6-virtues of human understanding and asking them to carry you as your companions of achievement. 

"In the strength of your creation -
You Are Not Alone."
~Phillip A. Lopez

3) You are going to utilize this exercise at various points through-out life...
Can you share examples of this?

You have read many times my usage and application of the term REBOOT. So let's make a short list of circumstances you may experience in your lives that you could categorize as a REBOOT event...

-The change from...
  • High School life, to Collegiate Life; a REBOOT event? Yes or No.
  • The Change from ‘teen’ to young adult; a REBOOT event? Yes or No.
  • Completion of College Life, to beginning of Professional Life; a REBOOT event? Yes or No.
  • Completion of College Life, to beginning of Post Grad Life; a REBOOT event? Yes or No.
  • From Single Life, to beginning of Married Life; a REBOOT event? Yes or No.
  • Career Advancement or Career Directional change; a REBOOT event?  Yes or No.
  • Married Life to Family Life... What about the news of twins; a REBOOT Event? Yes or No.

Above we have 7 Reboot events and for most, you haven't even cleared 30yrs old... Should we keep going?

-The change from...
  • What if Married Life doesn't quite turn-out as you had hoped; a REBOOT event? Yes or No.
  • How about life altering illness or injury or the sudden loss of a Loved one; a REBOOT event? Yes or No
  • What a about Job Loss / Business Closure / Bankruptcy / Foreclosure; a REBOOT event? Yes or No.
  • How about expanding your role to CEO / Group V.P. / Product Manager / Sales Manager; a REBOOT event? Yes or No.
  • What about carrying yourself to fulfil an entrepreneur role; a REBOOT event? Yes or No.
  • What about empty nesting; a REBOOT event? Yes or No.
  • What does the end of your ‘working life’, at retirement look like; a REBOOT event? Yes or No.

As you can see, there are many circumstances which you will routinely, expected or unexpectedly, face in life where REBOOT is necessary. So, Fear Not... Everybody REBOOTS! From here on out, until the end of your OneGR8Life, You are now equipped to UNCOVER your WHO virtues; Any time, Any where. The virtues necessary to assure the delivery of your Highest Human Potential, your unique Desire of Purpose. What ever that Purpose is… to BE, or to DO, or to GIVE.

My delivery of the SYNC Exercise to you, has Improved your Human Condition. I AM very happy about this!! In Faith and Love, I hope that you will add it to your daily arsenal of OneGR8Life tools. Along with your Map to Obtainment, Your SYNC Exercise will greatly enhance and empower Your OneGR8Life, and the lives that surround you and matter most to you.

Here is the link to the SYNC Exercise.

Choices of Intention... WHO, Before What and How.

“WHO” ~  First?

Gandhi would have us remember this; on the road to Obtainment, you cannot use methods that violate the ends that you are after. The significance of these words distill down to this... In all life, Ends and Means are then inseparable.

We can better appreciate this when we recall Gandhi's walk. Where he simply understood that you cannot create a world of brotherhood and harmony; through the means of tyranny and oppression. The lesson exemplified through Gandhi is timeless.

The lesson is this: No human can obtain a worthy goal, you cannot arrive at your worthy end, by using unworthy means.

Building Your Pathway...

When you understand the lesson available through Gandhi, you realize that one of the initial stepping stones on your pathway to the Obtainment of your Desire of Purpose, must be to peel yourself down to the core of your own individual means. That the discovery of "WHO" must precede the ends of "WHAT" and "HOW". Fortunately, we have already simplified the core of Obtainment to be; the internal attraction of an external desire.

Imagine for just one moment that the source of infinite intelligence and universal love, has placed You upon the earth for the achievement of your unique Highest Human Potential. What ever that Desire of Purpose might be...

Then each of us landed on earth encoded to deliver our own 'ends'. The beginning of that delivery, the starting point, must be to UNCOVER the 'means' which are inseparable to the fulfillment of those 'ends'.

Hit the Brakes!!

What did we just discover?

That your private lessons, will always precede your public victories. That privately you must UNCOVER your unique 'WHO' virtues before you can proceed to your public fulfillment of 'WHAT' and 'HOW'.

If you are sitting there sort of dazed by the simplicity of the preceding discovery... You should be! Is it any wonder why you struggle to accomplish - You keep digging with the handle of your shovel. You keep looking to solve for WHAT and HOW, with NO Regards for WHO! You need to REJUVENATE, you need to reverse the shovel - You need to start over and begin digging with the blade of your shovel.

If you are now Screaming -
But, HOW?!? Do I SYNC my means with my ends? You would be justified.

So let's walk through a quick and very simple exercise to SYNC your internal means with your external ends, your Desire of Purpose.

"You gain strength, courage, and confidence
by every experience in which you 
really stop to look fear in the face."
-- Eleanor Roosevelt

1 -VMJ.pngThe OneGR8Life.com SYNC Exercise comes to you as nine (9) sheets. Eight sheets include instruction and dialogue to walk you through the exercise. The ninth sheet is an uncompleted worksheet for your personal use.

The instruction and dialogue is presented from the perspective of you not having a clear, or completed, Desire of Purpose.

For this perspective, I have taken the liberty of assigning a Desire of Purpose. Why would I do this?

I want you to focus on the format and flow of using the SYNC Exercise worksheet. Once you have walked through the exercise and have gained some comfort and familiarity, you can then repeat the exercise and substitute-in your very own Desire of Purpose.

The value of walking through the exercise and then repeating the exercise will also demonstrate the unique REJUVENATION, flexibility, features of the exercise. You are going to utilize this exercise at various points through-out your OneGR8Life. You will soon see that each set of selected values are unique to the Desire of Purpose that you are currently involved in. Changes which influence your Desire of Purpose... Change the nature of the values necessary to develop and deliver that particular purpose. Now you can REJUVENATE with the ebbs and flows of your OneGR8Life.

The SYNC Exercise (aka, The Value Memory Jogger)...

The SYNC exercise includes '4' Rounds, set up in a progressive and eliminating style.

Round 1 - This is the broadest point of selection. In this Round you will begin with 234 values to select from. The Values are set up in columns of 6 values. You are to select '1' value from each column. You end with 39 selected values. PLEASE note; this Round also allows for a Wild Card selection. Bringing you to a total of 40 personally selected values for Round 1. These are your Choices of Intention. This is a step of responsibility and acceptance... To BE, or DO, or GIVE More, I must Become More.

3 -VMJ6_of_7.jpgRound 2 - I call this the 'Weakest Link' round. Here you eliminate one value from each paired column. Refresh your Wild Card, if you need to. When completed, 20 values will remain.

Round 3 - The 'Survivor' Round. You are starting with 20 values... you’re going to whittle this down to 10. Suddenly, the choices get a little tougher. Only the strongest survive in Round 3... time to say good-bye to some pretty solid and supportive values.

Round 4 - The Final Round!  You started with 234 values and have reduced them to the Top 10. But, you are not done! In Round 4 you are required to make the toughest of all your selections... You will need to reduce your Top 10 to the Ultimate 6. That's right! At this point there is no turning back - You must burn the ships at the shoreline and venture on with your Ultimate 6 values.

The SYNC Exercise represents a huge turning point. Up until now you have been receiving, OneGR8Life messages of Hope and Inspiration. The SYNC Exercise turns the corner to provide a little Instruction, to give a little Guidance. This sort of thing may not appeal to you… That’s ok ~ It’s YourOneGR8Life and that life is ALL about choices.

If you would like a copy of the SYNC Exercise, If you would like to SYNC your internal traits of WHO, with your external Ambition of Desire, you will need to request it via email… It will come to you in the privacy of your in-box as is your Dropbox Link. There is no obligation here, I will add your name to our email list for future exercises, but there will be no solicitation here.

For your Dropbox Link - Shoot me an email... phil@onegr8life.com

"Happiness is when
what you think, what you say, and what you do
are in harmony."

INTENTIONS; Illuminate the Darkness from Within

There are times in life where our busy-ness gets in the way of our Intentions. Intentions, as we will soon see, are your inner-most choices which Illuminate the Darkness from Within. Intentions transform your life from a good life to One Great Life. You see, every notion, idea, or thought which you place into action finds its root in a choice of motivated intention. It is your past Choices of Intention which have created your predicament of the present. It will be your present Choices of Intention which will create the circumstance of your future. With each breath, you perpetuate this cycle; thought, choices, action, circumstance.

Without a shadow of doubt, you have come to the acceptance of Creating, Dreaming and Living Your OneGR8Life. It is now time to UNCOVER your virtues of eternal goodness, to employ the utility of these virtues for the  Intention to evince the physical equivalence of your Ambition of Purpose. In simple terms… we are going to use the very best of you, to turn your dreams into reality.  Read this, Understand this, Accept this: I AM responsible for my Choices of Intention. It is My Choices of Intention which create my circumstance of Reality. When I AM at the point, where I seek to improve the circumstance of My OneGR8Life, then I must only change my Choices of Intention.
  • I know… But HOW?!? do I change my choices of intention?

UNCOVER your Choices of Intention...

In your entire educational or life experience - ever taken a class on SYNC? You know, SYNCing internal traits for the value of gaining external pursuits?  For a majority of you, probably, not! That's Ok! This is not the stuff they teach in High School, College, In Trade School, In Grad School… in the trademarks of formal education. When it comes to SYNC, You are left on your own! It wasn't any different for me either. So, I had to create my own system. This system is based on uncovering years of hard charging, compounded by a relentless pursuit with myopic vision. The system has been battle tested and is guaranteed to minimize distractions and reduce uncertainty.

SYNC - Uncover, Discover, Achieve...

UNCOVER - your WHO traits.  Tools required: A Pencil, and a Clear and Truthful Mind. This is a manpower resource issue.  You cannot consistently execute your WHAT, if you have not defined WHO. WHO are you being called to Become? What WHO values do you need to employ to carry you from your current predicament, to the delivery of you Ambition of Desire? What WHO values run most dominant within your personal fabric? Are the WHO values that You currently possess adequate or compatible for the Who that You are being called to become? Or, do we need to upgrade our current WHO value set? No harm in upgrading! It is Your OneGR8Life; in order to Live it - You must Create it... to Create it you must first Dream it.

The coursework of #CreatingPhenomenal is to place WHO before WHAT and well before HOW. Big Dreams and Ginormous Goals are the expectation for your OneGR8Life. But, you need to understand that what you are attempting to do is exchange WHO for WHAT. The accomplishment objective; to BE, DO or GIVE more (your WHAT), cannot be fulfilled unless you become more (increase your WHO).

I've said it before, but it is worth repeating... If No Change was necessary for you to Live your OneGR8Life; You'd already be there! The reality is, None-of-Us is there, yet. Continuous change occurs daily; we constantly find ourselves in a state of becoming based upon our Choices of Intention. As an important note: You should be advised that this is the initiating exchange to be encountered along the Obtainment pathway; Become More, in Exchange to Be, Do or Give More.

DISCOVER - Apply your WHO traits to your WHAT (Ambition of Purpose). In this scope we are ready to set intentions of action that suit our internal frame work.  No more anxiety about being truly committed; you are working outward from an internal core that You exclusively selected. Erased is the internal / external conflict. Erased are the fluffy aspirations, and useless Psycho-babble; magically everything blends... Mental, Physical, Spiritual. How can it not? ‘You’ selected your WHO virtues as those that would be required to deliver your Ambition of Purpose. Who knows you, better than you? Who knows better than You, as to what all is involved in the transformation of your Ambition of Purpose. This unique position from which you begin, is meant to launch you forward with extraordinary confidence.

ACHIEVE - In Control; the state of being when - WHO and WHAT are in harmony... Your Being is SYNC'd. You have reviewed WHO you are, and established the virtues of eternal goodness for WHO you being called to become. You have determined what is important. - Every thing that you do now comes from an internal core that is based on your individual value system.   - From this state you can start charging forward.

Recognize that past attempts to achieve a specific desire may have lacked the formality of a planned approach. Specifically, a planned approach that roots back to uncovering your individual ‘WHO’ traits.

-- Let me guess... because I can hear it already...

  • But, HOW?!?
  • WHERE do these values come from?
  • WHAT values do I have to choose from?
  • Is there a SYNC Method or Tool to use?

My promise to you, is to walk with you step-by-step, we will uncover the method of ‘HOW’ to UNCOVER and determine your ‘WHO’ traits shortly.

---      ---      ---
I have been working on a very special exercise which has been designed specifically to cement today's post into the everyday things that you do. I am especially pleased to announce this to you blog readers as an immediate exclusive. As I mentioned weeks ago I am working on a book series and this exercise will be part of that publication. This means that you get to see the exercise a couple of months prior to its general publication.

Now, I think I did a pretty good job on our Map to Obtainment. So you can pretty well guess that our SYNC exercise will deliver very high up there on the HOW?!? scale. I would encourage you to share this news within your network of family, friends, and connects; digital and face-to-face.

Please, DO NOT MISS the Tuesday, December 23rd, OneGR8Life post. I promise this post will REJUVENATE your thought process and revolutionize everything that you choose to do!

Your Greatest Delivered Value? ~ Differentiate!!

We Share in Common...  --  Your OneGR8Life...

You have before you, your entire life and through this blog space you will have the opportunity to learn HOW to discover your greatness and HOW to deliver your highest potential. The simple fact that you found this site is enough to tell me that we share a common goal. That common goal is the Obtainment of your Highest Human Potential, the delivery of Your OneGR8Life.

I can imagine that by now a couple of questions have already begun to fill your mind -
  • Can Obtainment of Highest Human Potential be taught? Just like teaching reading, or writing, or algebra? Or being taught to ride a bike?
  • Can there really be a sequence to REBOOT the Human Operating System, which allows me to Dream, Create and Live my One Great Life? Regardless, of past circumstance?
  • If such a sequence does exist, is it repeatable? Is it available to be used through-out my life?
The answer to these question is, Yes!

The steps to dream and create your OneGR8Life; to deliver your Highest Human Potential are as teachable as learning to walk or ride a bike, or read, or write, or do mathematics. My intention is to simply teach you –HOW?!?
And, it starts right Here:
You see, your current circumstance in life can only be built-upon your current level of experience and knowledge. Returning to this blog space frequently, is one sure-fire way for you to grow your level of experience, to grow past your current circumstance. In the previous statement you uncover a critical understanding as you begin to Dream, Create and Live your OneGR8Life; In order to Be, Do or Give More, I Must Become More.


The journey of ‘Becoming’ is initiated through your internal spirit of individuality; your internal willingness to Differentiate your one great life. Differentiation is not a selfish or standoffish attitude of counter-culture posture. It is not about your hair cut or the streaks of accenting colour. Or, the clothing style of fashion trend that you are attempting to project. When you choose to Differentiate, you bring forward into the light of the world, your enate virtues of eternal goodness. It is in the isolation, release and delivery of your individual virtues of eternal goodness, that you rush forth into an endless stream of joy and happiness!

For many the concept of ‘my life becoming different from others’, can be a huge stumbling block. If you find yourself beneath this veil of uneasiness, my promise to you is to walk with you… step by step.

So, let’s move forward to UNCOVER, your virtues of eternal goodness. Let’s release your endless stream of joy and happiness.

Don't wait; the time will never be 'just right'.
Start where you stand, and work with
whatever tools you may have at your
command, and better tools will be
found as you go along the way."
~Napoleon Hill

What we have here is a failure to communicate!

As Obtainment is an inside job, we must clearly communicate two things:

  1. As Humans we can improve our sense of accomplishment when we resist the temptation to confuse Success with Obtainment. A great way to separate the two is to consider Success as the name of the pathway traveled to Obtain your life's purpose, to secure your happiness. In his model, we are then free to view Achievement as nothing more than the stepping stones to Obtainment. Achievement then becomes a daily self-management exercise. From this point we can clearly see that good self-management assures the successful accumulation of daily achievements. And, daily achievement then insures accomplishment. Accomplishment is the vehicle of choice us we travel along the pathway towards Obtainment.
  2. Accomplishment can be accelerated towards Obtainment, when our internal traits are in sync with our Desire of Purpose (to Be, Do or Give). For example, if your Desire of Purpose is to Be a world-class expert on digital marketing, but you do not naturally possess, or are actively working toward attaining, the internal trait of caring for people - your bus will initially accelerate but, it is easy to conclude that through time that bus stalls. The inability or lack of desire to sync internal traits and external pursuits is a common pitfall that we all have faced!


As the achiever within us says, Charge!!!  The conscious mind immediately asks; well, WHO is going to do all this work, or worse, the conscious says... There is no way I can get from where I am today, to where I want to be in one week, one month, one year, one lifetime. When this occurs, and for 80% of all humans this happens, we slowly abandon our vision, lose focus of our Desire of Purpose, allow for complacency to take root, and eventually disconnect from our commitment to deliver our divinely assigned purpose. Once we fall back into this mode, we again resort back to aimless activities which hold no value or limited value at best.

To correct or recover from this mode - we must install a new operating system. That's right! The loading of a new operating platform with upgraded and optimized instructions. Instructions which UNCOVER our virtues of eternal goodness, SYNC them to our external Desire of Purpose, all for the singular added value of turning your dream of Purpose into it’s Physical Equivalence.

“One’s destination is never a place,
but a new way of seeing things.”
~Henry Miller
