Earn, Learn, and Don't Use Your Budget!

If you are a chamber of commerce, Main Street Community organization, school foundation, or an organization with a cause, this opportunity is for you! 

When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change. Make a difference with your membership and your community without putting a dent in your budget. 

Want a speaker, but budget is tight? We can do this together! We provide the workshop, and your organization handles the publicity, registration, any refreshments, and meeting facilities.

 In return, we split the net registration fees 50 / 50 with your organization.

(travel expenses may need to be discussed depending upon location of event) 

We offer flexible programs for your non-profit to present to your community members based on your needs, our experience, and our popular book, The Be WUCA! Way, The ART of getting along. (Press release)

The Be WUCA! Way is a process to create civility in environments where people get along so businesses grow, customers return, bottom lines increase, students achieve, and organizations grow.

WUCA! is an intentional lifestyle. It’s a choice of how we think about, talk about, talk to, and treat people civilly every second of every day.

It’s setting a respectful, civil atmosphere for your workplace, community, family, school, and place of worship where new people and ideas are welcome for deeper, more meaningful, productive, healthy relationships that grow your family's unity, economy, organization, and volunteers.

Act now and schedule this new WUCA! training for your membership, schools, communities, and businesses! 

Choose Your Attitude in 4 Steps

Everyone chooses their attitude. Attitude is a choice. For everything in life, there is a certain way of:

  • Thinking
  • Believing
  • Acting

Happiness is a choice. It is a conscious choice that you make every day. You either choose to be happy or you choose not to be happy.

You have to think first, “I am going to be happy today,” then believe that it is possible to be happy in all things today. After you have thought you will be happy and believe you can be happy, choose to act like you are happy.

Think about Eeyore on Winnie the Pooh. Eeyore could look you right in the eye and say, “I am happy” but his voice and his actions tell you differently, so what he does reinforces his unhappiness. Eeyore is not a happy donkey. Life is unfair to him. He is miserable. Everyone around him miserable.

Eeyore is what I like to call a “Crap Magnet,” where everything close to him has a crappy attitude.

Want to be happy? Try this exercise.

1. Identify a negative belief that you have. It can be anything from your work, family, any situation that you think will never get better.

2. Define how it limits you. What does it stop you from doing?

3. Decide how you want to feel and act. Think about the end. How do you wish that you would feel and act if the belief was not there?

4. Create a turnaround statement you can read every day that reflects how you want the end result to be. Start the statement with “I am…” e.g. “I am choosing to be happy today and I am building civility in all relationships.”

It is time to quit waiting for:

  • Perfection
  • Inspiration
  • Permission
  • Reassurance
  • Someone to change
  • The right person to come along
  • The kids to leave home
  • The pain to go away
  • A new administration to take over
  • An absence of risk
  • Someone to discover you
  • A clear set of instructions
  • More self-confidence

What are you waiting for? 

Choose to have a positive attitude and choose to be happy. Do whatever it takes.

As Larry the Cable Guy would say, “Get “er” Done!!”

Choose Your Portal

I was watching my nephews play a video game over the weekend and I started to reflect upon what I did learn. (Yes, you can learn something from a video game.) Every time they wanted to get to a different level to get a prize that would give them more points and chances to get to a higher level, they had to create a portal in a wall.

A portal is the path or, the hole, they create to get them through a wall. It's like a door, except it can be created anywhere.

So now I am thinking of decisions as portals that get us to a different level of life. Every decision holds an infinite number of possibilities in front of us. Whether a decision is big or small, either will change our life. Maybe even determine our future.

Think about a decision that you recently have made. What has happened to you because of that decision?

Who have you met? Who has been in your life? What have been the financial effects? Are you better off or worse off?

What was the greatest lesson you learned from that decision? What relationship did that decision improve? Would you make that decision again?

Each choice we make takes us through a portal. Sometimes we don't know what's on the other side when we enter. Some choices turn out the way that we'd would like them to turn out and some don’t. Some choices are good. Some are not.

The portals we choose to walk through can have long-lasting outcomes for us and the rest of the world. When we make them, we do know if it's a moral decision, sending us down a path that affects other people, areas of our life, other events that happen in the world, and we have to live with the outcome.

What would have happened if Mr. Washington never met the future Mrs. Washington? George would not have ever come into existence.

What would the world be like if Bill Gates had decided it was too hard to try and sell this idea of a computer in every house because IBM said there was no need for every household to own a computer?

How about Walt Disney giving up because he had dyslexia?

Marianne Williamson said, “As we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give permission to other people to do the same.”

Making good choices is lifelong. Listen to advice, but choose your own portal. You will change the world, depending upon the portal you create.

Remember The Be WUCA! Way formula to drive your CAR: C + A = R.

Your Circumstances + Your Actions = Your Results

Portals are choices for us and the world. Let your light shine!
