Ed McMahon Remembered

Ed McMahon Remembered

Impressionable are we all to the images and lives of icons created and presented to us via the airwaves, movies and everyday life.  So much so, that there seems to be a finite balance between what we experience and what we percieve as experience.  eg:

I see a Bruce Lee movie and instantly I’m transformed into Bruce Lee. Like wise, when I see Ed Mcmahon, I dream he’s ringing the doorbell to my parents apartment back in the day with the biggest gi-normous check for 10 million dollars I will ever see in my entire life.

Instead, some Dexter looking Erkel sounding pimple face knocks with hat in hand on how I can help save the world if I buy just one raffle ticket for the lions club his father belongs to….
Poor Soul.. Here kid, now beat it.. And tell Ed “I left the light on!”

He didn’t hear me..

Free Money.. The American Dream. I thought it was the pusuit of happiness.
I must have missed the turn back there somewhere. Never really did feel like
I belonged on this planet.


Farrah Fawcett

Beauty: Farrah Fawcett
Just got the news tonight she passed.. Cancer. Damn shame.

Over Popularized, she had the biggest set of teeth I’ve seen since
the cartoons of Teddy Roosevelt I’ve remembered from a kid.
Pretty she was, but to me she never matched up to a Victoria
Secret model. Now, Heather Vale on the other hand??

But the hair!! lol the hair.. I swear, [I live in PA but I hail from NY
if ya couldn't guess] the hair is still a rage in some parts. And on THE most bizzarr heads I’ve ever seen… Ok that was pretty bad..
But seriously, ladies, open a different copy of Cosmo will ya?

Anyways.. The woman of your dreams, exists only in your dreams.
Some people just aren’t meant for superstardome. Stephanie Frank
made mention of this about the recent once “to be” starlet Miss OBoyle,
from that talent show in Britain “london has talent” or something like that.

Wherein, the sudden thrust of stardom is so overwhelming for
those of a less complex stock, they simply implode on mental &
emotional levels. Same happened to Farrah and she never quite
came back to us now did she? Would You!??!

Hey Charlie!!  years after they cancelled the show.. Call me!
I’ve been told I’m an angel.


He Said “I’m Bad.” The rest of the lyrics willl always escape me so I won’t
bother trying to repeat them..

Michael Jackson

Michael Jackson

FAME Michael Jackson : Michael Jackson has died at age 50 after suffering a cardiac arrest, according to media reports..

4 yrs older than I. Watching cartoons of the J5 and listening to motown classics. This basically was my intro to this legend and poorly publicized icon. Another shamefull display of stardome gone awry. Come to think of it I think Ed was the only one who actually went the distance.. okay not on the same calibur. But damn the tonight show, thats big enuff for me.

Michael is/was a great example of, if you have enuff money, it doesn’t mean you can do anything you freakin damn well please… A talented happy idiot
was not what Michael needed to be. So growing up and bringing life and imagination
to the masses was something to be transferred and cultivated. Not incubated
in secluded recesses of ones estate.

Is it any surprise that the icons of intertwined generations have suddenly passed in one fell swoop?

Thats a subject of a different ilk. Right now I just ackowledge the passing of legends.

My respects to them each.

Remember: Legends Are Lived, Not Built.

How Do I Stop Panic Attacks?

Success Shortcuts Weekly Tip

Hello from the Success IQ Transformation Team
You ask – we answer!

This week, Stephanie Frank answers the question:

How Do I Stop Panic Attacks?

Q: S**** asks, “Why do I react to a problem or an issue by running around and panicking, even when I know that reaction won’t resolve the problem any quicker?”

A: The reality is no matter what, as you go through life, problems, challenges and obstacles happen every single day. (I mean really, when was the last time that any of us had a day when we didn’t have a problem of some kind?)

It doesn’t happen. So here’s the thing.  Your job is not to be problem free.  That will happen when you’re dead. Until then, you are alive and dealing with all kinds of obstacles – big ones, little ones…and the reason that you’re freaking out every time a problem comes is you’re trying to force yourself not to have any problems. That will never happen. So….

…instead of looking at your problems as constant crisis management, flip it around.

Look at your problems as the creative challenges that show up in your life specifically to give you an opportunity to do something new.  Look at it like a long distance runner. You’re going to have things that will get in your way, possibly slow you down, and maybe even things that you’re going to have to jump over.  Is your focus on the obstacle or on the finish line?

Here is one of the things that I do every single morning: I sit down and say, “I realize that my day is whatever it’s going to be today and I would like to have a day that no matter what challenges come up, I would like to go through this day with ease and grace.”  (Ease and grace, those are my two favorite words.)

What that means is this.  You’re setting the tone for the day so that these problems that you’re talking about don’t absolutely sideswipe you and wreck your day. Ease and grace is the intention you are setting.

Now, if you’re talking about the kinds of problems where somebody just walks in and dumps something on you and all of a sudden it’s up to you to handle it and deal with it, that’s a whole different issue.

In that situation, what we’re dealing with is that you are teaching people how to treat you.  So if you’ve taught people to just come in and dump their problems on you (and you no longer want them to do that), now it’s up to you to teach them not to do that.

Just because someone else has a problem doesn’t mean it’s your problem.  There’s nothing that says when somebody comes in and dumps something on you that you have to take it onto your own shoulders. You’ve probably got enough of your own problems without taking someone else’s on too.

Instead of taking the world on your shoulders, the next time someone brings you their problem, respond with this, “Hey, is this something that you’d like me to deal with or are you just venting?”  Ask the question.  Don’t assume that the whole world is on your shoulders. Those kinds of assumptions can quickly lead to overwhelm, panic and major freak out.

Now it’s up to you to set up your day with ease and grace and to ask more questions when you feel put upon.

Focus on Dreams Becoming Reality

I wanted to take a moment to focus on dreams becoming reality.Focus on Dreams Becoming Reality

A long time ago I was given a card given to me by my parents. Little did they know that card would help shape the person I am. I hung it on a wall and stared at it in time of personal character crisis.

Adversity is a crossroads that make a person choose one of two paths: character or comprimise. ——-John C. Maxwell

My Son, I Hope That All Your Dreams Become Reality.

Dreams can come true if you take the time to think about what you want in life
Get to know yourself
Find out who you are
Choose your goals wisely
Be honest with yourself
But don’t think about yourself so much
that you analyze every word and action
Don’t become preoccupied with yourself
Find many interests and pursue them
Find out what is important to you
Find out what you are good at
Don’t be afraid to make mistakes
Work hard to achieve success
When things are not going right
don’t give up~just try harder
Find courage inside of you to remain strong
Give yourself freedom to try new things
Don’t be set in your ways that you can’t grow
Always act in an ethical way
Laugh and have a good time
Form relationships with people you respect
Treat others as you would want them to treat you
Be honest with people
Accept the truth
Speak the truth
Open yourself up to love
Don’t be afraid to love
Remain close to your family
Take part in the beauty of nature
Be appreciative of all that you have
Help those less fortunate than you
Try to make other lives happy
Work towards peace in the world
Live life to the fullest…
My Son, Dreams can come true
and I hope that all your dreams become a reality.

~Susan P. Schultz

I don’t write very often or nearly as often as I should. When I do I wish it to come from the heart. For even though I market on the internet and help others get what they want. I am by no means out to be unethical or without integrity.

I honestly believe that you have the ability, if you so desire, to change your circumstance. For there is no greater power in the universe as the power of FREE WILL, barring the power of the Creator of which we are all a part of. Harnessing that power and focussing on yielding its enormity is the greatest challenge you will find. In the end it will be the most fullfilling journey you will ever.. ever undertake. That… is a Promise.

So rather than continuing with a diatribe or further discourse.. I will will gently leave you with those words of encouragement to ponder and hold. Hopefully as peacefully and gratefully as I have throughout the 19 yrs I’ve had this card in my posession.

Notice what it is you focus on–
Peace and wellness
