In October, the tide has begun to turn in our favor. Awakened vitality and brightened thought patterns begin texturing our lives. Constraints soften into flexible options.

This strengthens our willful determination to encourage change, embark on rites of passage and take on the future.

MONTHLY FRONTLINE FOCUS - AUGUST 2O1O
August began on cheerful and productive footing, but now we're beginning to hit a number of annoying bumps in the road. Frustration, obstruction, vulnerability, emotional strain and over compromise seem to be shadowing us in all too many ways. Draining?...Yes! But nothing need fall apart if you don't! Actually, much of what is happening, by its very nature, can be alleviated, if not fully resolved, by the way in which you respond and proceed.

In a month when restraint rules and the dictum is "easy does it", be sure to 'chill out' on all fronts. Then you can more readily comprehend and evolve from the lessons coming your way.
What is key this month is to remember that: "Such power there is in clear-eyed self-restraint" ~ James Russell Lowell
MONTHLY FRONTLINE FOCUS - JULY 2O1O
Here we are in July, with more that half the year behind us. How will July be carrying us forward as we move into the second half of 2010? Well, we start out without much opposition from other people or circumstantial influences. This enables us to feel energized, motivated, lighter in spirit, and more ready to take some well calculated risks, engage in a bit of adventure and place some focus on having fun. This welcome sense of balance, contentment and peace brings revitalization with it. But that is as far as it goes. That which will require an investment of ourselves and active effort will not really get off the ground. Instead we will be invited to open ourselves to introspective examination for the formulation of new approaches, thought patterns and aspects geared to beneficially protecting us for when things go unexpectedly awry.

MONTHLY FRONTLINE FOCUS - JUNE 2O1O
We've made it to the midway point for the year and happily, after many months of challenging and often unsettling changes, June appears to present a month of positive activating energy enticing us to leave the stalemate position too many of us have placed ourselves in as a means of protection.
During the early stages of the
month, nothing seems to invite one to move

MONTHLY FRONTLINE FOCUS - MAY 2O1O
Well, in the event you might not have already noticed, this May is a rather touchy month. Touchy because many of us are extremely sensitive, vulnerable and much of what we are attempting seems to proceed in quite a "touch and go" fashion.
Frankly, it is just going to be a rugged month. Initially many of us may be drawn to contemplating and analyzing new plans, activities, trips, meetings and discussions. For most it would be best to not thrust forward. Intentions, plans and actions, no matter how well researched, discussed and thoroughly thought through will have a strong propensity to either backfire, evolve into disappointment, or just not be graced with the luck needed to succeed. Curiously though overwhelming frustration and impatience, the byproducts of feelings of impotency and insecurity brought on by much of what confronts us, reach such a breaking point that they actually serve to catalyze us into improving our attitude and outlook as May progresses.

With many unexpected changes and occurrences in the wind, this is a month where it is best for us to take our sails down and wait for a change in the wind.

MONTHLY FRONTLINE FOCUS - MARCH 2O1O
The vitality to move forward has been lacking. Vigorous desire, willpower, drive, ambition, determination, resources residing in all of us, have been lying dormant obstructed by factors, people, institutions and situations dampening our spirits and effort. We are exercising extreme caution and avoiding making important decisions in response to the current economic crisis and emotional response it evokes. We are unwilling to move forward in unfamiliar times and conditions.
Continuing to permit the forces greater than us to impede our progress will only lead to deterioration of our current status and inherent strengths, moving us down the vortex to chaos. The security we mistakenly believe we are grasping onto will dissipate. The absence of personal progress carries with it emotions of unhappiness and dissatisfaction. Our innate abilities to improve our situations will diminish in intensity and fortitude. Our sense of personal confidence and self-assurance with dissolve. Yes, caution is a good thing, but too much of a good thing is not good! Inevitably the law of diminishing returns kicks in. When this happens a protective stance too long in place becomes a destructive one.
Breaking free from this cycle is not all that difficult. The limitations currently imposed on us can actually prove to be good teachers, forcing us to make piercing explorations and evaluations of the elements restricting the exercise of ambition and determination to manifest better parameters for ourselves and our lives. As we delve into what lies outside our control, our comprehension and familiarity of its imposed limitations increases. And with this comes a source of empowerment. Gaining a profound perspective enables us to strategize the best ways to direct our inner drive for positive progress. A self-activated alteration in attitude fuels our drive and willpower to design and execute an effective strategy for positive change and upward evolution within the parameters of our lives.
When confronted by imposing forces, circumstances and individuals, remember to respect their power and scope. Unbridled determination and ambition have to be reined in. Without careful navigation of your energies, the results could prove unrewarding and disastrous, thoroughly depleting your inner strength. Carefully assess and reset goals, keeping focus on maximizing the hindering elements to your personal advantage. Previous pre-conceived concepts and objectives need to be released. Perceive your position and its opportunities within the greater whole to determine what your new targets will be.
Become an archer, making sure that your targets are viable ones lying within the scope of your capability and expertise. Adjust your position to your advantage, eliminating obstruction. Take aim, then release your re-vitalized spirit and let it connect your energy, willpower, desire, drive, ambition and determination with your target.
"The starting point of all achievement is desire. Keep this constantly in mind. Weak desires bring weak results, just as a small fire makes a small amount of heat." ~ Napoleon Hill
MONTHLY FRONTLINE FOCUS - FEBRUARY 2O1O
Grown foreign to all too many of us is the unique sense of inner pride and contentment which stems from manifesting remarkable evolutionary personal achievement.
Our noses are hard pressed to the grindstone in a rugged global economy. The rewards we seek for the effort we expend are fundamental ones. They come as the result of a restricted focus primed to address the most immediate and essential elements requisite for the basic continuance of our businesses, careers and personal endeavors and are dictated tightly by the parameters of our existing circumstances.
The drudgery of constantly working from a protectively defensive perspective depletes our energies and stifles visionary thinking. Pondering only our short term issues inhibits our long range projections. We become distracted from more expansive thinking and bigger ideas. Attention to only the immediate over a prolonged period generates lethargy. Lethargy obliterates the stimulation of motivation, inspiration, enthusiasm and creative thinking. Our opportunities for the excitement of implementation and the thrill of accomplishment are obstructed.
Take a moment and think...Where do you see yourself a year from now?...three years?...five years? Where do you want to be? What would you like to happen most for you from both professional and personal perspectives? How do you arrive there?
Consider life is rather like a billiards game. Yes, you are focused on the immediate when you are taking your shot, but if you are to achieve your goal of winning the game, you will also be focused on the impact the shot you are taking will have on the next shot to be made and you will even stretch your focus a bit further and dare to think about the shot after that.
When playing billiards, you are constantly evaluating and planning out where you are going and how you are getting there. As the successful players are visionary thinkers, utilizing their present to create a victorious future for themselves, similarly the dynamic of our thinking in the now will definitively impact our chance to achieve impressively successful future outcomes.
Why not begin exercising your "gaming" spirit this month? Hone up on your visionary thinking. Think fortuitously rather than defensively, inviting the challenge. Let ideas, creative concepts and dynamic action reveal opportunities previously unseen. Speculate on the possibilities. Confront the potential risks. Inspire motivation. Induce enthusiasm. Create the scenario for the future. Get in the game. Put your faith in yourself and take your best shot.
MONTHLY FRONTLINE FOCUS - JANUARY 2O1O
Although too many of us have been frozen in place for the last 9 or 10 months, the advent of the new year appears to be fostering a general ambience conducive to birthing the new: new projects, new businesses, new divisions, new products, new services, new relationships, new clients, new vendors, new technologies and systems, new locations, new space, new homes, new classes and workshops, new opportunities, new outlooks and new goals.
Before jumping headlong into action, identify your overall prime objective for what you are about to facilitate. Direct your focus first toward the end result before dwelling on the specifics of the steps toward getting there. Think big picture and focus specifically on your target. What precisely is it that you wish to accomplish or gain as the ultimate result of the new project you are about to launch or the new path you are about to venture onto?
By first streamlining your thought processes toward the overriding motivation for parenting of the new, it will then become easier for you to determine, evaluate and then decide on the precise factors and options which will best promote the attainment of your prime objective in the smoothest possible manner. Determine what constraints and obstacles you will be dealing with as you take aim. Conceive of the means and methodology to resourcefully work through or around such inhibitors now, so that when you step forward, you will not become blocked nor lose focus. As you implement your process in the most conducive and beneficial way you will reduce the risk of abandoning it. Deliberate, careful, creative introspection will provide you with the compass you need to chart your way through new waters.
A clear internalized perspective of your overriding objective in generating the new, coupled with a well thought out secure, steady, innovative and smooth approach will enable you to constructively avoid the frustration of hasty false steps, and the ensuing confusion, frustration and delay they promote.
Combine your experience, expertise, wisdom, creativity, intuition, forethought and fore-planning into energetically launching your new and then watch the evolution of your progress!
