Complaint Free Canada

October 29th, 2009

Last week, I was in Toronto speaking to groups regarding living a Complaint Free Life. I spoke ot the Human Resources Professional Associations International of Canada and shared with them our exciting new “Complaint Free Organizations” program which is available as a FREE download on the home page of our web site

Even though I spoke at 7:30 in the morning there were several hundred people in attendance who were very excited about taking the program back to their corporations.

I then flew to Windsor, Ontario where I spoke to the staff of the Caesar’s Casino as well as invited community leaders. Nearly 1000 people attended the two sessions. I ended the trip speaking at the Forster School in Windsor which is an ELS (English as Second Language) school. It was wonderful to see such a diverse group of kids who are now on fire about becoming Complaint Free. The teachers, there, are planning to download our free “Complaint Free Kids” curriculum from our web site

One of the things people are really resonating with is the idea of a Complaint Free Zone. Both our school and our business programs include forms at the end whereby a leader can designate a certain area as a “Complaint Free Zone.”

Feel free to download either or both programs–they are free. And try making an area of your home or business a “Complaint Free Zone.” Tell people it’s ok to complain, just not in the zone.

Next week I’ll be speaking in Orlando, Fl (and because it’s Orlando, I’m taking my daughter, Lia with me).

Have a great, Complaint Free day!

Prosperity Affrirmation

October 29th, 2009

A few years ago a friend shared with me what I think is the most powerful consciousness conditioning tool I’ve ever read. It’s a prosperity affirmation that can’t help but make you feel inspired and connected to the source of universal supply.

Here it is….

(Read Aloud Every Day for 30 days)

I am the source of all wealth.

I am rich with creative ideas.

My mind abounds with new, original, inspired thoughts.

What I have to offer is unique, and the world desires it.

My value is beyond reckoning.

What the world needs and desires,

I am ready to produce and give.

What the world needs and desires, I recognize and fulfill.

The bounty of my mind is without hindrance or limit.

Nothing can stand in the way of my inspired creativeness.

The overflowing power of God life energy overcomes every obstacle, & pours out into the world, blessing & prospering everyone, & everything through me.

I radiate blessings, I radiate creativity, I radiate prosperity, I radiate loving service. I radiate Joy, Beauty, Peace, Wisdom & Power.

Humanity seeks me and rewards me.

I am beloved of the world.

I am wanted wherever I go.

I am appreciated.

What I have to offer is greatly desired.

What I have to offer brings a rich reward.

Through my vision the world is blessed.

Through my clear thinking & steadfast purpose, wonderful new values come into expression.

My vision is as the vision of the mighty ones.

My faith is as the faith of the undefeatable.

My power to accomplish is unlimited.

I, in my uttermost God Source, am all wealth, all power, all productivity.

I hereby declare my financial freedom, NOW and henceforth forever!

Mental Recession

October 29th, 2009

Sen. Phil Graham was recently attacked for saying, “The US is a ‘nation of whiners’ and we are in as much of a ‘mental recession’ than an economic recession.”

I could not agree more. Sure we’re in a time of economic shift but we’re ALWAYS in a time of economic shift. When the economy is shifting up we take it for granted (although most people then find something else about which to complain. When it’s down, we feel personally slighted, “how dare you do this to me!!”

The United States has weathered major economic challenges in the 1890s, the 1920s, the 1980s and today. This won’t be the last one.

The thing is, to the extent that we participate in the recession mentally we participate economically. I know of a man who, every time I talk to him, has the latest tale of economic woe and how his business is not doing well as a result of the economy. Knowing him as I do, I have no doubt that the economy has effected his business but not nearly to the extent as he has created this reality with his own thinking.

What I mean is that he has, in my opinion. failed to try as diligently or creatively to create new business for himself. He goes in to the office expecting things not to work out and, well, they don’t. A true self-fulfilling prophecy.

20 years ago, I was selling radio advertising for a living. At one point, the Arbitron radio station ratings came out and, somehow, 25% of our audience had switched to other radio stations during the one rating period. Was this frightening? Sure. Challenging? You betcha. But I decided that my clients didn’t care how many people listened to our station, they cared how many people walked into their businesses and I worked harder.

Other salespeople, without realizing it, cut back on their efforts and took every little setback as proof of the futility of working hard. They scaled back their efforts whereas I cranked mine up. That month, I sold nearly $60,000 in new advertising (my cut was 12%–and 20 years ago, $7200 in one month was good money–heck, it still is). Others wanted to write it off as luck. But you and I know the truth.

Phil Graham should be given a medal or at least a gold-plated Complaint Free Bracelet.
