By: Lucas F. When I was about to begin my Lifebook session, I had huge expectations. I really believed this experience would be significant enough to change my life. After 4 days, I'm convinced it will! My answer for the first question we were asked Thursday morning was: "I want to have a feeling that I know which direction I'm supposed to and I want to go." And now I realize that's not what Lifebook is all about. It's not a magic recipe for success, no one is telling you what to do. It's not teaching you what to think, nor how to think. IT MAKES YOU THINK. I feel like this is the best thing I've done so far - thought about my life deeply. I always knew I had potential to live a good, comfortable life. But when I was planning and thinking about my life - my future - it was never extraordinary. Lifebook made me realize I was limiting myself. Now I know I deserve all there in on our planet. I deserve the best, I want it all, I want to achieve amazing life success. Moreover, what's the most important is that I know - I am 110% confident that I will achieve it - no doubt about that. How? By implementing my strategy, by achieving all my goals, one by one. I know that's the path I should walk... that's the path to my ideal life.

“Like most people, you spend much of your time swimming in a sea of negativity and complaints. Just as a fish may not even be aware of the water that surrounds it, you may not be aware of all the complaints you hear and speak.” -Will Bowen Complaining is so much a part of our society, it can be difficult to recognize what is and is not a complaint.  So let’s begin with a definition… The dictionary defines the word 'complain' as: an expression of dissatisfaction, pain, or grief; to find fault. Basically, complaining is the counter-opposite of being grateful, content, and self-responsible. And boy, do people love to complain. Open your ears and you'll hear that complaining has become an integral part of most people's daily exchanges.  Many times, people use complaints as icebreakers – beginning a conversation with a negative observation because they believe it will elicit a greater response than something positive (and, unfortunately, they're often right). People complain about cold weather, hot weather, traffic, lack of sleep, hunger, fullness, uncomfortable clothes, jobs, lack of jobs… the list is endless.

By: Lifebook Member Anthony Foster Walking through the hallway at the October 2015 Genius Network Event I noticed the Lifebook table and began to ask questions. As the questions were being answered I said that it was something that my wife would need. I knew that she would not go on her own so I decided to sign us both up for the January class in Phoenix. I knew it would be a challenge to get her to attend a workshop environment for learning, she does not like that sort of thing. That is the sort of thing that I would do because I have been attending Strategic Coach with Dan Sullivan for years and it has made a great difference in my lifestyle. I filled out the form and paid the deposit to secure the space for my wife and I and asked the lady there, "Please do not contact my wife until I give you clearance." I had to create the opportune time to inform her that we were going to do Lifebook. After telling her, I had to take all sorts of abuse and reminders that we had different interest. I told her that she would like it . She told me that I would not know and to stop trying to convince her. I called the lady at Lifebook and said that she could contact my wife now that I was walking around on eggshells. The next time Lifebook was mentioned in my house was when we were having a family function and my wife asked me to capture some pictures for her Lifebook . That was a good sign.

Character determines our destiny, and virtues are the core essence of our character. The more we recognize the impact that consciously practicing virtues has on our lives, the more we open up to new possibilities, growth and greater joy and fulfillment. So pull out your Lifebooks and flip to your Character chapter… it’s time to hand-select the virtues you are most committed to mastering this month! Explore our Master List of Virtues below, and discover powerful new definitions for each of them.

In honor of the virtue of “order,” they've been organized into six main categories: Wisdom and Knowledge, Courage, Humanity, Justice, Temperance and Transcendence (adapted from Values in Action classification of strengths, Peterson and Seligman, 2004).

Once you’ve read through the list, comment at the bottom to share which virtues resonate most deeply with you at this point in your life. And if you have a virtue to add that isn’t listed below, be sure to share it with us! Enjoy!
