"My personal feeling is that everyone benefits from
Personal Coaching. Whether or not you own a business,
having a personal coach creates balance, peace and
growth in your life. Some may need it longer than others.
For me I went in with a 3-month program;and found that
I needed more. It was time worth its weight in gold.
Thank you Phil."

|Making A Difference|
| ||I hope you are enjoying the fun and sun of the summer
and staying cool. Here's a great little beach story with a
An old man was walking along the beach, when he came
upon a part of the sand where thousands of starfish had
washed ashore. A little further down the beach he saw
a young woman, who was picking up the starfish one at
a time and tossing them back into the ocean. "You're
wasting your time," he exclaimed. "There are thousands
of starfish here. You can't possibly make any difference."
The young woman reached down, picked up a starfish,
and threw it as far as she could, back into the sea." I
made a difference to that one," she said, and she
reached down to pick up another.
What a great story to use during times when you feel
knocked down or discouraged. No matter how
overwhelming things may be, know that every action you
take when motivated by positive intent does make a
difference. Ignore the naysayers who tell you that what
you want to achieve is unrealistic or impossible. If the
girl in the story had listened to the man, she most likely
would have become discouraged, complacent, and would
have lost the vibrant energy that was alive in her as she
went about throwing the starfish. Believe in your
convictions and commit to seeing them through. You
never know the ripple affect this can have in the world.
The difference you can make is right in your own hands.
