We are happy to have this blog post be part of the
Winter Solstice Blog Hop
Winter Solstice Blog Hop
Over the past few months, Chantel and I have focused on helping you recognize and achieve success in a variety of forms. We began with a success inventory and built on that by contemplating a unique aspect of who we are and how that shapes our success. Then, we looked at time, trust, and identity through the lens of success. In our last post, Chantel used leaves falling from the trees to talk about letting go of what's preventing us from being successful.
We'd like to offer a little incentive by sharing three things with you - some great quotes about helping others, an example of some of the local places Chantel supports, and an opportunity for you to win something from us.
As I contemplated this post, I looked for quotes to inspire me and would like to share three of them with you in addition to the one above.
"The best way not to feel hopeless is to get up and do something. Don't wait for good things to happen to you. If you go out and make good things happen, you will fill the world with hope, you will fill yourself with hope." Barack Obama.Below you will find my (Chantel's) list of the local artists, musicians, retailers and restaurants I support. I live in Los Angeles, so if you live in the area or plan to visit soon, make a point of stopping in to one or all of them. You can also order online from some of these organizations.
"Even the smallest act of caring for another person is like a drop of water - it will make ripples throughout the entire pond." - Jessy and Bryan Matteo
"If you're not making someone else's life better, then you're wasting your time. Your life will become better by making other lives better." - Will Smith
Finally, we would like to give something to you. In the spirit of supporting a local business or artist, I should mention that Chantel and I are both local artists and business professionals. Therefore, I am offering a copy of my novel, The Son of Nine Sisters. Chantel is offering three thirty minute coaching sessions and a copy of an Eddie Edwards and the Psychedelic Spurs CD . To win one of these gifts, simply email us and let us know which gift you prefer and we will enter you into the drawing for that gift.
