Congratulations, You have Graduated!

You have Graduated through the AMBITION series. You now stand fully prepared to move forward onto the next stepping stone of YourOneGR8Life.

Before we jump ahead, here are a few Ambitious highlights that we carry forward:

Returning to Your Map of Obtainment, we continue on, together we venture to understanding the nature, and added values, of UNCOVER; The Utilization of Internal Virtues to Evince Physical Equivalence.

In #CreatingPhenomenal, the goal is to Obtain, to hold, the Dream of your Highest Human Potential. It is Your OneGR8Life; and you are continuously invited to Dream it, Create it. Live it... To transform the Dream of your Ambition of Purpose, into it’s physical equivalence. We have already established that, the Creation of physical equivalence, is a transformation which occurs with self-directed flow, from within-outward.

Your Ambition of Purpose carries you with Destination and Direction. In your spirit to Obtain, you are self-directed to resolve,
  • How Can I Serve?
  • How Good Can I Stand It?

UNCOVER continues your transformation, from within-outward, to resolve,
  • WHO Am I? - Every Being which Arrives to Earth is on it's way to Somewhere. So, ask yourself... In order to deliver my Ambition of Purpose, WHO do I need to become. To Dream, Create and Live More, You will be challenged to become more. Let's explore, WHO you are being called to become.

This is the natural internal progression of #CreatingPhenomenal; resolve WHO, before the progression of What and How.

It is your continued enthusiasm to consume the words that inspire me to continue. I AM thankful each and everyday that we have an opportunity to help in the growth of each other; in the delivery of our OneGR8Life. Blessings of Continued Success in ALL that you do!  ~Phil

Three Keys to Elicit Your Ambition. Anytime, Anywhere!

Let’s go!

As we continue along the trail of Ambition, let's make sure that we have a good confident feeling about the journey we embark on. 

Let's review...

What am I doing?
-Embarking on the journey to Obtainment and Delivery of my Highest Human Potential.

Where do I go first?
-I AM following the Map of Obtainment. Step One...
    --AMBITION: Transformation of a Notion, Idea or Thought to a Desire of Purpose (to Be, or to Do, or to Give).

How do I Feel?
 -Excited, Courageous, Enthused, A bit Anxious, with my Map in hand, I AM a little less Uncertain; I venture to change my circumstance yet, I AM still not convinced I know HOW?!?

I AM My Deepest Desire!

Rest assured you are not alone in your Uncertainty. Remain confident in your Map! Take a look at it again... recognize that it is a loop. No more complex than a trail through a garden. Be courageous in knowing that you cannot get lost if, you stay on the trail; following the loop, you will return to start again. Little steps at first - then we will move to larger steps, and jumps, and running.    

Where did Everybody Go?

As young people our entire development is spent being told WHAT to Do, When and Why to do it. With warm smiles and words of congratulations, comes the encouragement from family and friends to reach for more. The words from spiritual leaders, intended to assist as you aspire to lead and live a better life; to become the best that you can be. Then one day you come of age and ask HOW?!? On that day, did you notice, suddenly, the room went dark and silent. The response, if any, is typically filled with opinion; which we all hold as our own individual truth. Opinion is simply based on our internal digestion of personal experience and delivered in preference. But the HOW question was not submitted in solicitation of opinion. It was submitted in attempt to unroot fact!

More Confidence; The Map you hold, is not based on fiction or opinion. It’s foundation is fact! Proven again, and again through the history of mankind. So, let’s look to uncover a couple more known facts. You will use these facts to build your HOW in the days ahead.

In AMBITION - Own Your Destiny...

To begin, you will need to Own your Destiny; you will need to take the ball and shoot! As basketball great, Michael Jordan once said, "In my life, I've failed over and over again and that is why I succeed."

Secondly, you will need to remain hungry to satisfy your desire of purpose. Not physically lacking in nutrition but, fueled in Ambition to deliver; Humbled in Determination to Achieve your Highest Human Potential, Bolstered in Courage to find the strength to Never Give Up.

Most importantly, you must deliberately choose to be responsible, for the things that you choose to do and the things that you choose not to do. This deliberate selection of choice, it broadcasts a message to the Universe. That message shouts-out; HEY Universe, I AM Over Here… I AM looking to deliver my Highest Potential, I AM requesting some additional direction, some more instruction. In this way You communicate your Intention to the Universe, selecting the Universal channel to both broadcast your requests and to attract a message in reply. The frequency with which you broadcast, then determines the frequency with which you receive a reply.

As you advance in the Obtainment and delivery of your Highest Human Potential, the greater your intensity of focus becomes. The clearer, the more specific, your message of request becomes, the clearer the reply becomes. The more that you choose to BE, or to DO, or to GIVE, the clearer the instruction of delivery becomes; Your Dream, Your Creation, YourOneGR8Life.

“If no changes were necessary for
You to live YourOneGR8Life,
You'd already be there.”
                                       ~Phillip A. Lopez

Your current level of knowledge and experience has carried you to this point. Recognize that you have exhausted the capacity of this knowledge and experience… It can carry you no further. Your advancement of self now comes in the form of personal growth; adding new knowledge and requesting new experiences. You make such a request in order to get from where you are today, to where your Desire of Purpose is transformed into it’s physical equivalence. This is the doorway to your receipt and growth of abundance; To BE, or to DO, or to GIVE more, I must become more.

Three Keys to Elicit Ambition of Purpose...

There are three keys which allow you to elicit the spirit of unbridled Ambition. Anytime, Anywhere! These keys are already embedded within. They may be a little rusty from lack of use or, they may currently be slightly misguided. In either case, it falls upon You to choose the combination of these keys which is best suited for your transformation of Desired Purpose… Your Dream, Your Creation, YourOneGR8Life.

  • Focused Concentration
  • Resilience
  • Integrity

Only in the stillness of prayer or meditation do these keys open to you, your Desire of Purpose; Your Ambition of Highest Potential. In this way your message of request to resolve HOW?!? has been broadcast, Universally, and has attracted to you this concluding fact; In YourOneGR8Life you can BE, or DO, or GIVE, anything; that Ambition is the starting point of all achievement, that Ambition of Purpose is your starting point of Obtainment and delivery of your unique Highest Human Potential.

Design Your Own Life...

There once lived a man by the name of Jim Rohn. Jim obtained legendary status in his delivery of personal and business development guidance. Rohn teaches us that we must design our own life. If you do not, there is a very high probability that you will fall into someone else’s plan. If you let this happen there is absolutely no way for You to Obtain Your Highest Human Potential. If you allow yourself to fall into someone else’s plan, can you guess what they have planned for you?  Not Much!

Ambition of Purpose
Reveals my Divine Significance.

The designed life of Ambition of Purpose is resolved in stillness, through your simple request for Clarity of Thought;

  • How Can I Serve? ~ This broadcast message receives a Universal reply of provided Destination.
  • How Good Can I Stand It? ~ This broadcast message receives a Universal reply of unwavering Direction. 

Your Focus of Concentration, and Resilience, and Integrity, transform with your request to nurture your Ambition; to resolve both Destination and Direction of Purpose;

  • Who Am I? - This broadcast message receives a Universal reply to install your Intention of Purpose ~

I AM my Deepest Desire!
I Shall Nurture My Ambition;
This is My OneGR8Life,
I Shall Dream it, Create it, Live it!

---      ---      ---

Mindful Moments (Thoughts for You to Take Away...)

So, we have walked upon three very important foot stones today...
1) I AM not alone in Uncertainty. My confidence to move forward will stem from the proven Map to Obtainment, which is in my possession. Focused Concentration, increases my courage to take small steps forward as I learn to Dream, Create and Live my OneGR8Life.
2) I AM responsible for the things I choose to do, as well as, the things that I choose not to do. I own the design of my life. Resilience shines forth in moments of setback or success it is ALL my OneGR8Life.
3) I AM responsible to Dream, Create and Live my OneGR8Life. I must not allow my OneGR8Life to become subject to someone else's plan for me. The Integrity of My OneGR8Life is internally driven; in order for me to Be, Do or Give More, I must plan to become more.

Nurturing AMBITION; Moving Forward.

The Universe has extended to you an invitation to Unchain your Greatness. Acceptance of this invitation is a huge leap of faith. To make that leap you need only grab Courage and Confidence as your traveling partners.

Domino’s of Unforeseen Events...

In the later half of the 1980’s my wife, Janice, had grown tired of our traditional end of summer Colorado River water ski adventures. With two weeks before our planned holiday she drops the bomb… “I’m changing-up our holiday plans for this summer.” I sensed a deep commitment in her voice… my only response was - “fine, if you think that you can pull everything together in two weeks we can go anywhere.” Eight days later, I was informed that we would be traveling to Wyoming. That is all I was told. Of Course I was surprised that she had pulled the whole thing together. And, I knew better than to challenge the plan. So, I grabbed my suitcase, removes my flip-flops and swim suit and repacked.

Unforeseen to each of us, She was about to deeply alter our lives ~ The planned trip was to drive from Los Angeles, CA to Jackson Hole, WY. This is about a 20hr drive, I had never driven but a couple of miles to the east of Las Vegas, NV., about 5hrs. We departed on a Thursday, before the sunrise, 7hrs into the drive I found myself entering the Virgin River Gorge. Canyoned walls tall enough to shadow the sun, filled with orange, purple and red rock. Out of Nevada, into and out of Arizona, North through the Utah corridor, skirting the far west side of the Rocky Mountain range. A day later we arrived in Jackson Hole. It was late-afternoon when we checked in. A quick bite to eat and Janice volunteered to drive to the north east of town. Fifty minutes later I was standing at a roadside scenic view turn out, watching the sun set behind the Grand Teton’s.

By Sunday we had checked into the Triangle C Ranch. Only on the drive from Jackson to the Triangle C did my wife divulge the truth of selection… This was a vacation spot for her family as a child. Relatives on her Mother's side had owned the Triangle C in the mid-late 1960. She had wanted a real vacation… no cell coverage, no computer hook-ups, a single phone at the reception desk, no in room cabled television. It took me 2 days and 3 horseback rides into the wilderness to adjust. But, adjust I Did!

We would return to this region twice yearly for the next 3-4 years. Finally, we settled into a small log built home in Gallatin Gateway, MT., about 20 miles outside of Bozeman. Janice moved first… it took me just over a year and a half to connect into an income stream that would sustain the two of us. We lived in our Gallatin Gateway home through-out the 1990’s.

I often ask myself HOW could one single change in a planned holiday, stretch into a 15 year adventure? Courage and Confidence!

It is with the same Courage and Confidence that I share with you, CreatingPhenomenal. In the #CreatingPhenomenal spirit let’s expand a bit further, on two topics -

  1. The root of my confidence?,
  2. If a person currently found themselves, uncertain of their purpose, is there a first thought?

These are two very significant and appropriate questions. Especially, in consideration of the fact that we are only just beginning along the path for Obtaining Your Highest Human Potential.  (Newbies... Grab your Map here... Join Us on the trail - we are at AMBITION)

So let's get started...

Is there Anything that You Cannot Do, Be or Give?

"No!" There is nothing that is not Obtainable. As Human's we have been coded to Dream, Create and Live. This is YourOneGR8Life. "You Can Be, Do, or Give Anything that you Desire."

There are some of you that are looking to satisfy some very large opportunities. You will need to find the simplicity and confidence in this fact - the difficulties which lie ahead in the pursuit of your Desire, are Always no more or no less proportional to the reward of Obtainment. Big Thoughts = Big Rewards. Simply anticipate proportionately, Big Difficulties. Once you accept this, the difficulties are tamed to be perceived as reasonable for the task... no more, no less. For example, Cure for Cancer = BIG Thought = BIG Reward... proportionately BIG Difficulties, BIG Collaboration, BIG Resource Commitment. Get the concept?  Do not allow yourself be over-powered by BIG; from where you stand now, there are things that are presently unfamiliar but, that should not prevent you from attempting.

In the Pursuit of your Desire, to Be, Do or Give... If you can identify the Opportunity, the solution must already be within you!  -  You cannot identify, what you do not know.

The stated question was -

-You seem pretty confident here...  What justifies this confidence?

My confidence is rooted in:
  • We each have come to this earth in possession of a brain. Each brain has it's own capacity, everybody has been coded with their own desire of purpose. And,
  • My own personal experience of achievement and accomplishment.  My 30 year, pursuit of desire was to figure out, HOW?!?  To create and prove a solution to the Obtainment of your Desire. I didn't ask for mega-riches, I didn't ask for a garage filled with Maserati's, I asked for HOW?!? That's what I got - That's what I share with you!

We are unable to deny the fact that each of has appeared on earth with a brain. Whether we choose to fully utilize the potential of that brain is the subject for a different discussion. But, a brain you have!

The fact that you are in full possession of that brain, connotes that for your individual circumstance, the pursuit of your unique purpose, you are already in possession of all the standard equipment necessary to achieve and accomplish; Anything!

But, I am not as smart as the next guy...  That cannot be an excuse in the delivery of your purpose. With little effort, has your brain not carried you this far in life? Your brain HAS everything necessary to carry you to the solution of ANY problem that will be presented to you in your OneGR8Life. It HAS to be this way! Your opportunities, for your brain. My opportunities, for My brain. Your Brothers/Sisters/Fathers/Mothers opportunities, for your Brothers/Sisters/Fathers/Mothers brain.

How did I realize this?  I grew up with set of incredibly smart brothers. This made standing out very competitive... in a loving kind-of way. My oldest brother; You know the gifted athlete, incredible learning ability - 'A' student type, the see something and walk into the garage and build-it type. My next youngest brother; the Golden touch - you know every time he puts his thumb into the pie and pulls it out there is $100 on the end. And, then he just smiles all the way to the bank. Do you know people like this?

Well, that wasn't me! I started by carrying buckets of sand, with holes in the bottom of the bucket. But that didn't stop me! I figured out HOW to repair the bucket and then figured out HOW to haul the buckets faster. I knew that I Could, I knew that I Would - and that was enough!!

Now comes Your Turn!!

At the end of our last post we came to the conclusion that You have complete control of every thought that you choose to keep or discard. That it is YourOneGR8Life and, that you are responsible to Dream it, Create it and Live it.  Oddly enough, Someone asked HOW?!?

I understand that there are some who are traveling with us who have not yet determined their desire of purpose. For you, you just need a starting point. Guess what? I have a great place for you to start. If you are having difficulty nailing down your desire of purpose; start by taking the time to answer this one simple question... ready?  

Answer this: In my OneGR8Life, I Will... (Be, Do, or Give).

Do not let this question fool you, confuse you, bamboozle you.  There is no wrong answer here. I am not asking you to answer where the money , time or other necessary resource will come from... we will take care of that soon enough. You find your answer in the collection of single ideas, notions, or thoughts that are received daily. ‘Your every idea, notion, or thought has been received for your use, to deliver your Highest Potential.’ The task is to create your moments of stillness and LISTEN.

The answer to this question flows from the inside-outwards. It is initiated as you listen to your spirit - your spirit cries out your Desire of Purpose on a constant basis. You have to listen and transform what you hear into words. Is your first rendition perfect? Not Likely!  Is your first rendition likely to be the only rendition of your entire life? Probably, Not. - Remember, #CreatingPhenomenal is a process, not a singular event. The success of #CreatingPhenomenal is measured in the collected achievements of many events. This is the whole purpose of you having your map; to create a repeatable continuous process.

Let's Prime the Thought Pump...

Today you are being called to initiate the delivery of the greatness that lies within. Do you have what it takes to Dream, Create and Live your greatness? Do you have the AMBITION to Dream, Create and Live your greatness? You must write it down, to get started---

Go Ahead… Give it a Go  ~ Write down Your First Thought. 

Even if you just go to your smart phone and open a note and record your thought there. Or open your Evernote, and create a notebook titled 'CreatingPhenomenal', then add a note titled, MyOneGR8Life. Or do it the old fashion way, take a steno pad, or actually buy a journal, and begin recording the notes of your first thought there. Tomorrow, read your note and then edit your note as your spirit of Ambition compels you to do.

Let me deliver to you, yet another opportunity to rejuvenate your Ambition of Desire. As you progress through the #CreatingPhenomenal series you will uncover many fundamentals in the development of your Highest Human Potential. To help get your thought process started - Write the following down in your journal and then again on a couple of post-it notes and place them where you can see them through-out the day... Nightstand, Bathroom Mirror, Wallet, Computer Monitor, Smart Phone, maybe even set the words up as your
screen saver.

Ready?  Write this down...

--- I, ( your name ), WILL receive an Abundance of ALL good things.
ex. I, Phillip A. Lopez, WILL receive an Abundance of ALL good things.

This becomes the thought that carries you to uncover your desire of purpose.
