Do Your Numbers Match Up?

This coming Saturday (June 2nd) is the Love and Romance Expo here in the Dallas Area. It’s a great event being put together by my good friends over at Preface Entertainment. Many of the speakers are taking on subjects that present a challenge to many in life, and they are up for the challenge.

Some of us have not always had the greatest life; we face things that none of us should face, but with our fallen world we must deal with them when they come up. Cindy made herself the Joyful Survivor, building a life of showing others how they can rebuild when others tear you down.

Her story is that of a young girl who was abused. Now a wonderful joyful writer, speaker and teacher, she is very informative and entertaining as she shares tools of numerology without getting technical; her view is based on how everything is mathematical. She will change your thought process to show you how to use this spiritual, scientifically-based idea.

Cindy is a long-time friend of mine. I can never recall spending time with her that did not bring a smile to my face. She taught me that we all have a great insight on love and romance in life. We all have a different way to share.

Many more will share their experiences at this event. I’ll provide information about other speakers and what they are going to speak on this week. And to find out all the details check out this link: Love and Romance Expo.

Come back tomorrow for another featured speaker at this event. I’m Tim Gillette, the Rocker Life Coach. It’s time to live your dream, to love what you do and those you share life with. Always find a way to make life better no matter what happens, then you will be the RockStar in your world.

Rock Of Love

This week we are going to focus on an upcoming event that I will be part of in Dallas: The Love and Romance Expo. It will take place June 2nd.

This is a great event for everyone who needs to work at strengthening their relationships. Yes, that includes me, so I wanted to do a theme this week on love and relationships. I will also have a few posts with information on the speakers and what they will be talking about.

Going into the week and thinking about the idea of what will happen at this great event next Saturday, I wanted to share my thoughts on long-term love. Love and romance in our world has become more about feelings than about relationships. I’m not saying all relationships are this way but what the public sees and what we portray in the media is all about feelings or whatever moves you in the moment.

I wrote my topic for this event and called it “Rock Of Love,” because I wanted to think of what the difference was between a long-term relationship and the quick romance, fall in love and within two years it’s over and each partner moves on relationship.

With my love for rock ‘n’ roll, I use the example of the songs or artists that have stood the test of time in music, and those that were the one-hit wonders. With most of the one-hit wonders, we remember they all gave us a great feeling when they were on the top of the charts. I think most of the song, “Can’t Touch This” by MC Hammer.

Then I think of the long-term songs and bands that have been through so much, yet they still are there in some way. Think of the group, Aerosmith. Yes, they have been through many ups and downs, but you still hear them sing. You see them in movies; you see Steven Tyler on American Idol. Why do they stick around longer?

Last week I was at an event in LA where Phil Collin from Def Leppard was on stage. He talked about how he is now putting together health products. He talked about how he lost his friend to alcohol and how, as a result, he changed his life and made it better. This new health product line is a result of some those changes.

I look back on my own life and the one Sunday School lesson about success where I said I wanted to be a RockStar. Not many RockStars at that time had long-term careers because they lived lives of excess and abuse and they died young. Over the years the long-term, long-lived bands learn balance; they learn to build relationships with each other. The solo artists learn balance in their own lives and with the people around them. Why? Because they knew their bands, their music has a purpose that iss bigger than themselves.

This week we will be sharing about some of the other speakers from the Love and Romance Expo here in Dallas. But remember this key fact in all of it: when you are in a real relationship, you should be thinking, “This is bigger than me.” That is how you learn to build it.

Short ‘n’ Sweet

It’s time to wrap up another week on loving life. This is one of those topics that I can pull so many things about because I actually live this subject. I know I’m not a scholar and I know I do not have great things to share on every single subject, but this is one of those subjects I live every day.

While I’m in Los Angeles for the weekend attending James Malinchak’s Boot Camp of Speaking workshop, I am still enjoying my life. I still tell people that I’m living the dream and I mean it. Even when I will be up taking notes in a seminar with long hours, then meeting new people after the event, then writing a blog late at night after that, I’m happy. I’m loving life even while I’m spending time learning.

No matter what you do in life, you must love it. Yes, this week we mentioned a few of those things we must do that are not always the most fun, but they are part of what must be done to achieve our goals. The truth about loving life is that it’s your choice to do it. You decide to enjoy the process, the path you are on. You will make those choices and decisions today that will either be working to build a life you love and that is better for you or you will make it worse by not finding things to love in the process.

Your attitude and choices tell if you will be loving life or not. I choose to love life. No matter what, life is good. I love it good, bad or ugly. So enjoy your weekend and I will see you back on Monday.

I’m Tim Gillette, the Rocker Life Coach. It’s time to live your dream, to love what you do and those you share life with. Your attitude will determine your love for life and that will make you the RockStar in your world.

No Problem Dude

We all have those things in life that we worry about. Yes even I do. Over the years I know the things that have held me back from reaching my goals, the areas where I was not willing to do just a little more to make something work. And those areas that just would not work, no matter how much I wanted them to.

Last year I was shown a great example of the reality of what happens when you set goals. The example was used of a man talking about how, when we set big goals in our lives, the first thing we seem to get is a big obstacle. The bigger the goal, the bigger the obstacle that shows up in our path.

To illustrate his point, he held up a chair and put it in front of his line of sight, then he demonstrated how most of us now become focused on the obstacle once it is placed in front of us and let it take up our thoughts keeping us from our goal.

Over the years I have done this to myself so many times. It is when we understand that this obstacle is coming that we can now learn how to prepare and deal with it and move beyond it to reach our goals.

When I learned that this was what was going to happen – that an obstacle would present itself as soon as I set a big goal for myself – then I learned to make plans so I could keep the focus on my goal and deal with the obstacle as it appeared. Doing that helped make those goals happen. I now have learned to become more focused on what I want to happen, and quickly make decisions that help me deal with obstacles so I can get back work to reach my goals.

This does not mean that it always feels like fun reaching goals; no, they still require work. Again, you must make a choice to enjoy the journey past the obstacles. Working with clients who need to get that part down is easy for me, but tough for them. It’s another mindset of learning what is going to happen and dealing with it.

So today to help you enjoy and love your life, to make it a choice to love life, and not make it just a feeling, first understand obstacles are coming. They are there to deal with; don’t let them take your focus off the goal. Don’t focus on the obstacle. The more you learn to handle these obstacles the faster you will become at reaching your goals.

I’m Tim Gillette, the Rocker Life Coach. It’s time to live your dream, to love what you do and those you share life with. Don’t let obstacles keep you from being the RockStar in your world.

Last of Power Ballad Week

Good Friday morning to you. Yesterday I still had so many ballads of the ‘80s/’90s hair band era I was thinking about featuring that spoke of love. So I decided to let the fans of the RockerLifeCoach facebook fan page pick the song for today’s post and just after 9 pm last night, I took their suggested song and sat down to write this post.

Before I get to the song and the personal growth points to be found in it, I want to encourage you to do two things: First, go to the top of our page and sign up for our mailing list to get other information and news sent to your email, along with specials we offer on coaching. The second is to go to our facebook page and “like” it to get our posts into your news feed. If I am going to give away books, give away coaching, or ask for a suggested subject to write about as I did today, it is from the facebook page fans. My facebook fans get more than just a post; they are the ones who get to choose things. I will also make a free appearance to any of their business meetings or events anytime I am in their towns.

So on with the song of the day, the one that you, the RockerLifeCoach facebook fans picked. That song is Bryan Adams’, (Everything I Do) I Do It For You. The song first came out in the early ‘90s and it was used on the soundtrack of the movie, Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves

The first time I ever heard it was when a speaker at an Amway event I was attending used it to play a tribute to his mentor and his goals in life. It is a very strong love song in that it shows two people looking into the heart to find where true love is.

The very opening of this song is something we should always do with the one special person we choose to share life with. I think of this when I think back to the day that I proposed to Gwynne. That day was a well-thought-out day for me; I know her pretty well and as I planned it, I was most concerned that she would say I was teasing her. In fact those were the first words out of her mouth. But when she got to see the look in my eyes she could read my true heart. That is the one thing about our relationship that brings the knowledge that we truly love each other.

The chorus to the song says: “don’t tell me it’s not worth fighting for.” In love and in life from when you build a relationship with a spouse, to building a friendship, or even a business relationship, they will all sometimes involve you having to work to get through to the other person or persons. When those relationships carry a meaning that is as deep as your heart and soul they are worth fighting for.

No one becomes successful at a business, a friendship and definitely not a marriage without some kind of effort to keep it going. I believe that those relationships that you have to work for are the ones that become the strongest and, like the song says, there is nothing you will want more.

As we are closing out this week on great power ballads of love, remember that no matter what relationships you are going through these songs actually have a lesson to learn in life. Love and relationships are the things that will make this earth a better place for each of us. One saying that Gwynne and I use many times when we talk or in the writings of Rocker Life Coach is you never hear anyone say on their death bed “I wish I had spent more time at the office.” We always wish we had spent more time with the ones we loved.

So embrace that person who can read your heart and your soul, who nothing is hidden from when they look at you. I know Valentine’s Day was earlier in the week but make the love from your special someone last longer than just one day or week of the year. Build your relationships to the point of knowing them heart and soul.

I’m Tim Gillette, the Rocker Life Coach; it’s time to live your dream to love what you do and those you share life with. Build a deeper love with your relationships in life and be a RockStar in your world.
