ContinuingED 401 - Design YourOneGR8Life

One of the GR8est joys in my life have been my 4 nieces. Working their way through the transitions of their own GR8 lives, they continue to develop into active participants in their family and communities. All are into their 20’s now, the eldest at 27 has just delivered into the family the first male child in 50 years. Of course, we are proud of all their accomplishments and look forward to standing by their side as a loving presence.

About a year ago I started writing a series of ebooks. I titled the series,  ContinuingED. Eventually the series evolved into 4-parts, one part for each niece. Inspired by their current stage in life I chose a format of presentation to be pretty typical of what you would find in collegiate course work and study. The read is, much like a lesson plan. The 4th and final-part in this series I will self-publish this coming weekend. Today, I share a short excerpt of that 4th part.

Next week, we return to our Map of Obtainment. Picking up where we left off - we’ll initiate the EXCHANGE series. As you may or may not know, at this point, the OneGR8Life blog series is a continual feed, progressing through each of the Obtainment steps. This means to you that each blog post pretty much feeds into the next, the current post picking up where the previous post ended.

In the current OneGR8Life campaign there are 3-pieces, all available on a weekly basis…

  1. Mondays - The intent of the Monday, Resolution of the Week is to plant a seed of thought which we will remain common throughout the week. In this way, Resolution works in conjunction with the weekly blog post. The Resolution of the week is shared with our social circle of friends at G+, and at our Twitter feed.
  2. Tuesdays - Blog post. This is the main OneGR8Life piece of the week. You will not find a half baked idea or notion here. You will not find teaser posts here. Here we hatch an idea and see it through to the end. Yes, this is old school blogging, these posts are epic; so grab something to drink, sit down and have a good read.
  3. Fridays - Thought of the Weekend… A Weekend of Thought. This is the closing piece of the week. This piece will give you an opportunity to cement our blog-thought of the week while also serving as a guide to where we are going next week.

But enough of all that - Let’s get to our weekly post…
ContinuingED 401  -  Part 4 of 4...
Design YourOneGR8Life

1 ContinuingED 401

Class, let’s get started…
Straight away we need to separate the wheat from the chaff - If you are here, continuing from ContinuingED 301, You already know this to be a progressive series. As a 400 level, upper class, you will want to adhere to the prerequisites required, namely:
  1. ContinuingED 101 - Time to Think Different.
  2. ContinuingED 201 - Purpose above All Else.
  3. ContinuingED 301 - Ambition of Purpose.
If you find yourself without these prerequisites, You will want to excuse yourself. Unfortunately, in this final Part, 4 of 4, we make little to no reference of previous subject matter and the stretch of continuity cannot be maintained. For your added value, I request that you, PLEASE, revert back to Part 4 only after you have satisfied the prerequisite publications.
In any case, Thank you for your participation in this four part series. Through-out this series we have attempted to remain focused upon a single task; simply dedicated to helping you to transition from student to the discovery and delivery of your Highest Human Potential. As we conclude this series I would certainly encourage you to refer to this material with great frequency; use the 4-parts as a whole to design your life around it. There will be many opportunities for its usefulness as you are embraced by transitions, expected and unexpected, through-out YourOneGR8Life.

Let’s review quickly…

You have advanced from being a Student and starving to, Graduated and starving. CONGRATULATIONS! And, although your University has done a great job helping you to survive the book learning phase of your development, while ingesting a lethal dose of educational debt, you now find yourself a bit lost with determining HOW TO do whatever it is you think, you should be doing next. This is resolved for you step-by-step, right here, in this 4-part series.
Today, you find yourself standing at the fork in the road. Looking ahead you see that, one path is clearly marked, and appears well worn; it is marked, Hope for Best. The other path, although well marked, it looks a bit on the raged side, certainly less used, and almost uninviting; it is marked, Highest Potential. A tough choice you need to make! Let's see if I can help...
Your Path selection initiates your Smart Choices; ask yourself... How Good Can I Stand it?
  • If you are excited to enter the next phase of life, realizing that a little guidance and direction will serve to blaze a trail of life-long joy and happiness; learning to discover and deliver your Highest Potential, YourOneGR8Life, filled with Destination and Direction - Then, please, read this series.
  • If you think you’ve got this covered and you are filled with the confidence that you need not blaze your own trail - And, you'd like to give 'Hope for the Best' a try, then by all means, abandon this series. Hell, it's YourOneGR8Life; If you think that you have all the answers, knock yourself out... but you may want to double-check before you get too far down the road; ask yourself, How do I know that I am right? And, if I am wrong, how many years will I spend in the misery of this not so smart choice?

What we have covered so far?

The first step in the Dream, Create, Live sequence of YourOneGR8Life, is guided to establish your horizon of Unlimited Potential. The foundation of Ambition is then set in response to an elevated thought; How Good Can I Stand It?
The second step in the Dream, Create, Live sequence of YourOneGR8Life is guided by Ambition;
  1. To unfold the Destination of your Dreams,
  2. To reveal your Desires and form them into a Direction of Purpose; to Be, or to Do or to Give.

Your Ambition of Desire follows the path of Obtainment and is revealed in the simplicity of, How Can I Serve? Revealed here is your greatest source of happiness. Your highest potential will always reveal itself as you direct your actions towards the greater improvement of the human condition.
The third step in the Dream, Create, Live sequence of YourOneGR8Life, is to invite the Creative, to initiate your Ambition of Purpose. This is your external radiation from within; intentionally directed thoughts followed by courageous action, guided by your innate WHO virtues.

The Value of the Process...

Look, you are already starving, if you settle, like the rest of you classmates, on a 'job' you will undoubtedly earn some money. If you pause for one moment, to isolate the Destination and Direction of your Ambition of Purpose, you will earn the right to advance your life in joy and self-sustaining happiness while also, earning some money.

Part 4 of 4 - Design YourOneGR8Life...

The fourth step in the Dream, Create, Live sequence of YourOneGR8Life, is to wrap your Desire of Purpose in the protective blanket of Inspiration and Motive. In this way, by design, you Live in sufficient Faith to overcome ALL future restraints.
This is where we begin today...

The Great Exchange…

~I unlock the shackle of
Self-Limiting Fear, in EXCHANGE,
to Gain the Freedom of Unlimiting Love.

This post brings us to a transition point… Today we will conclude the DISCOVER series and initiate our transition into the EXCHANGE series.

Improving the Human Condition...

As we work through our 6-steps as outlined on our Map to Obtainment it is occasionally important to play a little catch-up. I know that many of you have very busy lives and this means that in order to balance your busy schedules you have to make choices of importance and priority; Somethings gotta give in order to maintain your sanity. Not to mention the endurance of the distractions of daily life, both expected and unexpected. So, take a deep breathe, if you need to -favorite this post. You can then come back to it as you find time this weekend. Does that work for you?

As I have mentioned before the OneGR8Life blog is coming at you in a sequential order. Meaning the next post will pick-up pretty much where the last post concluded. To you this means, you don't want to miss a post! To me this means, If I indeed Desire to Improve your Human Condition, I will need to create these 'highlight and conclude' posts on occasion - Sort of my way of creating space between topics and for allowing you to keep up.

Make a calendar note that the first EXCHANGE post will publish on Tuesday, April 7th. I’ll keep you posted through our social connections. Find the social connection that works best for you, here.

Tame the Madness... The Freedom to Overcome FEAR.


Everything is on it’s way to somewhere…

The lasting impression of your legacy will be
determined in length and width and depth.

  • The Length of your ability to recover from setbacks
  • The Width of your ability to overcome self-limiting fears
  • The Depth of your reliance upon Divine intervention

Today marks the closing post of the DISCOVER blog series. If you are new to reading this blog, don’t worry - start reading today, you will get up to speed in no-time.

So today, it is important to share with you two (2) last points surrounding the discovery of Infinite Inspiration and Motive to overcome ALL Restraints...

  1. The Cunning Nature and Power of FEAR
  2. The Acceptance of Divine Assistance.

The Cunning Nature of Fear...

The door of Purpose swings both ways. Purpose can lead to Divine Happiness or it can lead you to delusional self-satisfaction. Purpose can be used for your Greater Good or for your Demise. In its natural state of equilibrium, we find in the universe both do good Heros and Zealots of terror. NEVER underestimate the cunning power of Revenge and Fear. These two are very POWERFUL Motivators. I shall warn you here and now, that long term development of these two skills WILL eventually lead to self-destruction in all forms; personal relationship, professional career, spiritual enlightenment, eternal happiness. Ends and means are inseparable; you cannot dream, create and live a life of delivered Highest Potential, through the destructive means of Revenge and Fear.

The Power of FEAR...

So powerful, in it’s self-limiting nature, is Fear that it’s components, in any individual form or combination, WILL prove to deter your efforts of delivered Desire of Purpose. Only the imposed self-limitation of Fear can contain the fulfillment and Obtainment of your Highest Human Potential.

Let me repeat this...
the fulfillment and Obtainment
of your Desire of Purpose.

So powerful is Fear that a single component
WILL serve as ample restraint
to the delivery of
your Highest Human Potential.

The Restraints of Fear...

There are six (6) components of self-limiting Fear, namely;

  • The Fear of Poverty or Limited Worthiness
  • The Fear of Failing Health
  • The Fear of Criticism
  • The Fear of Old Age
  • The Fear of Loss of Someone
  • The Fear of Death / Dying

You MUST overcome Fear at ALL cost! Note the orientation below.

Now, recall our last words...
the fulfillment and Obtainment
of your Desire of Purpose.

There is no shame in the recognition of your inner fear. Only after it is recognized can you plan a course of attack to overcome the accompanying anxiety. You must see this is a Huge turning point... for many initiate to walk the path of Obtainment, few choose to endure the self-examination to isolate the source of self-limitation, of inner fear. The Universal reward for acknowledging your source of inner fear... Divine Assistance to overcome all obstacles. Recognize that the power to deliver Your Greatness, the power to overcome is already with you; it flows from within you and through you.

Divine Assistance...

The Dream and Creation of YourOneGR8Life requires great fortitude of Spirit. You are not meant to walk this path alone. Divine Assistance to overcome all obstacles of fear is received through the inner reflection required to DISCOVER your unique combination of Inspiration and Motive. Here you have it all, in confidence you direct your actions from the inside-to the-outside in order to conquer self-limitation. It is an all out effort. First, to isolate your Source of Inspiration. Second, to wrap that Inspiration with a blanket of Motive.

By now you should begin to recognize a repeating pattern leading toward the discovery and delivery of Highest Human Potential; that your one great life is a quiet reflection of self-understanding, enhanced through the moments of created stillness of prayer or meditation. Stillness of mind is not about, a lazy mind. Quite the opposite - stillness of mind only occurs when the mind is elevated to function at its highest level of calm. Here you come to realize that it is my OneGR8Life and I AM invited to Dream it, Create it, Live it. The directed journey of Obtainment of your Highest Human Potential is a path which leads from the Inside-Out; The External Radiation from Within. From this source of incredible inner strength the Delivery of your unique Desire of Purpose prevails. From within you have been Divinely granted the ability to overcome ALL restraints. Indeed, You Can BE, or DO, or GIVE, Anything that You Desire.

Need a quick example of moving from Inside-Outward?  

Here’s a connected thought for you; My Desire of Purpose to Improve the Human Condition is Inspired to increase my Health of Spirit, I AM motivated to develop and deliver a message of Love and inspired hope in exchange to overcome my fear and self-limitation of criticism.

Here is another connected thought for you; My Desire of Purpose to create an organization dedicated to the delivery of world class digital marketing solutions is Inspired to increase my philanthropic contributions of income to others, I AM motivated to develop and deliver products to enhance the personal expression and recognition of others in exchange to overcome my fear and self-limitation of created lasting legacy upon my earthly demise.

How phenomenal do the days of your life become when you wake with the resolve of focus which you have read above?

The Snare of Fear...

Should you choose to disregard the recognition of your inner fear, and the assembly of your combined Inspiration and Motive, you will jeopardize the delivery of your Desire of Purpose. From fear you can run... but you cannot hide! The snare of fear is anxiety. Anxiety anchors your forward mobility in a web of uncertainty and decreased Ambition.  Without Ambition, there can be no achievements; without achievements there is no accomplishment, without accomplishment there can be no Obtainment of Desire of Purpose.

For any Desire of Purpose, you CAN assemble a single, unique, combination of possibility to unlock your FEAR. I CANNOT identify your internal source of fear for you - You must learn of and perfect this combination if you Desire a life of Happiness and Abundance. This Combination lies within YOU! Only YOU possess the keys of self-reflection and the desire of created stillness found in your self examination. Through self-understanding, You UNCOVER the notion, idea or thought of Purpose, from within you DISCOVER the sources of Inspiration and Motive to Overcome ALL restraint. Erased once and for all, is your shadow of doubt regarding the potential and responsibility of YourOneGR8Life; You are responsible to Dream it, Create it, Live it; this is your Highest Human Potential!


We have spent many words now collecting the tools of skill and will necessary to overcome ALL restraints. Only one questions remains unanswered...

Are You willing to accept the responsibility
to Deliver YourOneGR8Life? Or,
will FEAR overcome once again?

The Power of Possessed Knowledge...

Never before have you possessed the Powerful tools that you have been exposed to here, through this DISCOVER blog series. Where much power has been collected, Highest Potential occurs. Power represents the focus of your collected energy. The energy which uniquely fills your life has taken billions of years to collect into the object of Being that is You.

Greatness shines in you and through-you. The collected energy of Inspiration and Motive are your Divine Assistants to overcome all self-limitation in the form of inner fear. You have the power of collected energy to develop your Dream, to Deliver your Creation, sufficient enough to Live your one great life.

The greatest power has now been entrusted to you for the Obtainment of your Desire of Purpose. The power to heal, or the power to harm… remain diligent in your intention to provide positive contribution for the Improvement of the greater Human Condition. Remain on guard against the cunning nature of ego. Your greatest contribution(s) will be found in your quest to DISCOVER, How Can I Serve?

Tools for Your Continued Journey...
The tools for your continued safe journey along the path to discover and deliver you OneGR8Life now include your...

- Map to Obtainment - Has anyone ever armed you with a tool so specific as to outline a repeatable path of Destination and Direction? Has anyone ever invited you to journey along a path of continued added value, for self as well as, for the others that you seek to serve?
- The SYNC Exercise - Have you ever possessed a tool so powerful and flexible to UNCOVER the Internal Values required as you initiate a Desire of Purpose?
- Five Questions to Unlock the Receivership of Purpose coupled with Discovery of Inspiration and Motive - At any time in life, have you ever been in such clarity as to recognize:

  • The components of Purpose and the Infinite role of Inspiration and Motive?
  • The elements of Self-Limitation and Inner Fear, the Invitation of Divine Assistance?
Have you ever been in a position to stare inner FEAR in the eyes, recognizing the limited nature of its components and being ARMED with the tools of skill and will to overcome?

I think not!

We have covered a great deal in the DISCOVER Series! I realize that impatience grows within you, to put all these wonderful pieces to use. The preceding sections have been critical as they establish a baseline for that which comes next. I can only encourage you to hang-on and continue your reading followership.

Take Away Thoughts:

If housed within me is the ability to see my opportunity of Desired Purpose, then also within, is the Inspiration and Motive to Overcome ALL Restraints. I chose my source of self-limitation, of inner fear; I choose the sources of Inspiration and Motive to overcome the anxiety of this fear.

I AM More Powerful than I ever Imagined!
