Dr John DeMartini Interview: Living Your Inspired Destiny

Dr John DeMartini can only be described as a person who chooses to see the upside of events and situations that would otherwise crush the spirit of a less aware and enlightened soul. He considers the early childhood physical and learning disabilities as gifts and opportunities to design the life he has now.

At age 7 his first grade teacher pronounced him dyslexic and suggested to John’s parents that he play sport as academic achievements was out of the realm of possibility. Thankfully her prediction was incorrect as today John DeMartini is a highly influential speaker, author, coach and master in the study of human potential.

His latest book “Inspired Destiny-Living a Fulfilling and Purposeful Life” is aimed at people who have yet to find their purpose and direction in life. “We all have a teen or early twenty year old still in us who has a passion and purpose to live and fulfill”, says John.

What I found most encouraging in this interview was his firm belief that we can pursue our passion and be well paid for it.

And here’s the clincher we all know what we would really love to do; as John explains, “We just have unfounded and unjustified fears (of failure and rejection) that can be overcome using the DeMartini method as set out in the book”.

This is a man with a vision, an astronomical vision of leaving this world a much better place than when he found it. John’s passion for positively affecting every person who has crossed his path makes the enormity of his vision an achievable certainty, this I truly believe.

Goodbye Corporate World, Hello My Own Heart Centered Successful Business

Hello all

I had the pleasure of interviewing Blanca Vergara sometime ago. Her story is inspiring, and I hope it will give you that little push to take action and change the course of your life.

Enjoy the read and click on the live link at the end to hear her truth.

Blanca Vergara had it all- the power, prestige, a plum executive management position in one of Europe’s leading companies. But that was not enough and eventually she broke free of the golden handcuffs to start her own executive business performance consultancy.

She listened to her internal wisdom, one that manifested spectacularly as a vivid dream, so startling that in her own words, she ‘jumped out of bed to write this vision down”.
Having found her authentic self Blanca’s business underwent an extraordinary growth, as her perfect clients began beating a path to her door.

Today she coaches people who recognize that they want more in their lives and have up until now been trading their life force for a paycheck.

Her clients are people who want to follow their passion and purpose and make a meaningful contribution to this world.

She guides and leads them in this transition process where their souls are enriched as they do what really moves their heart whilst giving them the practical marketing, positioning and business tools to not only survive but thrive in their chosen business niche.

If you a budding heart centered entrepreneur who is ready for the next step, this is a sign to connect.

A Life of Abundance Without Compromise

What is a life of abundance without compromise?

So often we settle for the path of least resistance rather than uphold the values we consider sacred, values that define who we are.

I would like to think that some of our highest values include maintaining our integrity and honesty in our dealings with other people but above all, with the most important person in your life, and that is YOU.

To be honest with ourselves requires courage and for us to fly against convention and the expectations of others.

Our silence is interpreted as consent as we unwittingly become hostage to our own less than ideal circumstances.

I am reminded of the story describing the method used to catch the slender limbed spider monkey.

The clever strategy consists of placing a peanut in a heavy glass jar with a narrow neck and leaving this trap at the foot of a tree that monkey calls home.

The desire for a tasty snack compels monkey to descend from his lofty perch, and to squeeze his hand down the glass jar to pick up his treat.

So as not to lose his precious prize, monkey makes his hand into a fist with the peanut safely tucked in the palm of his hand. In doing so, he cannot pull his hand through the narrow bottleneck and the heavy jar keeps him stuck at ground level.

The dilemma for monkey is whether to let go of his peanut treat and scamper up the tree to safety and freedom or become captive to the illusion of the prize.

In the corporate world, we refer to this as the “Golden Handcuffs”.

A person stays in a soul destroying job that does not inspire or invigorate them for fear of losing their perceived financial security, sense of prestige and the outward trappings of success.

In reality they are trading their life force for a dime.

If you can identify with this scenario, then realize that this is an inequitable exchange.

No amount of money can compensate you for an existence that is less than a life lived to its fullest.

By definition, a life of abundance in every sense of the word includes great health, happy loving relationships and material wealth.

And this is a life lived without compromise.

Yours in health, wealth and happiness

You Ain’t Nothing But a Hound Dawg

A city slicker was visiting his distant relations out in the country and stopped by a gas station for refreshments and to fill up his fancy car.
As he was about to go inside to pay, he noticed an old timer sitting on his wooden porch in his rocking chair just quietly taking in the fresh country air.
But the peace and tranquility was disturbed by a howling dog laying at the feet of the old timer.
Mr City Slicker could not contain his curiosity and just had to ask, “Hey there sir, I can’t but help notice your dog howling. Is he ok because he sounds like he is in a lot of pain”.
“Well, son”, replied the Old timer, “That’s because this here dog is laying on a nail that ain’t hammered down smooth on this porch”.
The next obvious question he had was, “Why doesn’t the dog lay on the other side of the porch then?”
Without batting an eyelid, the Old timer said, “Because then, it’ll have to get up and MOVE!”

The first time I heard this story, I laughed so hard I almost snotted.

This is a great example of some people who say they want to be happier, thinner, healthier, richer etc but balk at having to make some type of effort.
They love the sound of their own whining, they wheel out their “story” to the unsuspecting and hope to reel them in with their tales of why something’s not right in their lives (cue violins).

So, below is this little checklist that is sure to get us thinking. It’s self explanatory.

We ask ourselves, do we play above or below the line.

If you are an OAR it means you take ownership of the situation. For example you might be a tad heavier that is healthy for your gender, age and height.
You are accountable for that less than healthy lifestyle, and you take responsibility by doing something about it such as making a choice not to have the greasy take out but choose the lean chicken whole meal sandwich instead. In other words you play above the line like a true CHAMPION.

Alternatively, you can lay in BED and play VICTIM and below the line by placing blame on everyone and everything, make convenient excuses about why you can’t (substitute “won’t) change your eating habits and downright be in denial about the fact that you haven’t been able to see your toes for years.
