The Tension in our lives...

Hey the GREAT Edward here,

Happy Thursday!

I have been experiencing tremendous growth in my life this week ...

All good and for which I am very grateful.

I am grateful for all of the amazing people, like yourself, who have contributed to it.


I know that with growth comes Tension and who we deal with it determines how much or little we will grow...

I shot this quick video last night and wanted to share with you my thoughts on where Tension comes from.

Take a look...

So there are my thoughts...

Share yours below.

Look forward to hearing from you.

Have a phenomenal rest of the week!

God Bless!

BTW - I shot this video on Wednesday not Thursday as I mention in the video... 
Can't keep up these days... Maybe it's a bit of tension.  LOL!

How are You Living Your Life? Cold? Hot? or Lukewarm?

Hey the GREAT Edward here,

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.

A while back I wrote about about the idea of lukewarm living...

My post from last week You Just Gotta Get It Goin... 

and my good friend Paul Klaszus' post The Sum of All Successes! 

had me go back and take a look at a note I wrote before on being Lukewarm in life.

It goes a little something like this...

(From November 1, 2009)

I have been thinking about the idea of lukewarm for the past week now and wanted to share some thoughts with you about it.

Question: Are you feeling lukewarm in certain areas of your life? 
               Your work, finances, relationships, spirituality, etc.?

At times we all feel lukewarm in certain aspects of our life.

So what does it mean to be lukewarm?

I looked up the definition and this is what I found:

1. mildly warm; tepid


2. laking conviction or enthusiasm; indifferent


... the first one reminds me of water when I have spent to long in the shower before it becomes cold.

... the second one really makes me think that lukewarm reminds me of times in my life when I am in my comfort zone and pretty neutral to things even numb. They are times when I am not "cold" and doing nothing and also not hot and on fire where my determination and conviction is so strong that nothing can stop me.

I know for a fact that none of us were created to be living a lukewarm life.
Each one of us was created with the greatness inside to go for it full on in all that we do to achieve our goals, dreams, and desires that are waiting for us to attain.

I know what some of you are saying. I say it myself sometimes. Life gets in the way, challenges show up, set backs happen, and even the four letter word of FEAR creeps in from time to time.

Despite that we must remember that every day is a new day;

and a gift that is given to us to move ahead 

learning from the past; 

with great faith, hope, and belief of our vision, goals, and dreams of the future; 

to allow us to be on fire with passion and full conviction in every moment of the journey.

This is the day to start turning up the heat in your life and creating your best life one moment at a time.

You deserve it. 

You are created to experience it.

Let's get out there and be Hot in all that we do.

Crank up the heat!

Make it a great day!


God Bless!

You Just Gotta Get It Goin...


The GREAT Edward here,

Did You have a Phenomenal Weekend or What?

I had a great time with my family.  Went to visit the Ontario Science Center.
Had not been there since I was a kid.  My daughter loved it.

Before I joined the TSA a few months ago and ventured into the Blogging and Video world...

there had been many times where I have talked myself out of even getting started....  Have you been there?

A GREAT Mentor and friend of my Joe Schroeder always reminds me...

          "You don't have to get it right you just have to get it going"

This has stuck with me and motivated me to get started.

As I began in this Blogging endeavor I came across this inspiration that keeps me going...

          "It's not who you are that holds you back; It's who you think you are not."

This one really makes me think and stirs my insides around.

As I look deeper into this idea I realize that its the things that I think about doing...

or even worse know that I should be doing...  planning, organizing, wishing, hoping to do...

that I don't take action on that hold me back.  WOW!  That hits home hard for me.  What about You?

So I think out loud... Why do I get stopped by these things?

I have come to believe that our success really does come from who we think we are not...

rather than who we think we are.

Here are some of my experiences...

1. I think to myself... I am not a good speaker... Therefore I cannot do videos or speak in public.

2. I think to myself... I am not a good writer... Therefore I cannot write blog posts, articles, notes, etc.

If I was to continue to take action based on this way of thinking about myself...

I would not have even got started.  I am glad that I moved passed it and did it anyway.

I would not be here to share with you if I did not....  and what a great blessing I would have missed out on.

Here is some more inspiration that keeps me going.  I actually carry these around in my pocket with me...

          "You can't be more that you believe yourself to be right now."


          "If you don't conquer self, you will be conquered by self"

So what are you waiting for?  Is there anything holding you back?

You really just have to get it going!

Start being who you are not today so you can become who you where meant to be tomorrow.

Share your thoughts and comments below.

Make it a great day!


God Bless!

The Power of the Tribe


The GREAT Edward here,

Hope you are all doing well and had a fantastic weekend!

We celebrated my AMAZING and WONDERFUL wife Julie's Birthday yesterday!

Had some friends and family over for some food, drinks, and great conversation.

Check out Julie's blog at Here!

So as you may know I am part of a Tribe.

I have been for almost two months now.

It has been an excellent experience.

I have had the chance to meet some Amazing people,

Connect with them,

Learn from them,

and Share their Great Content with Others.

If you are not sure what a Tribe is here is my definition:

                    "A group of like minded people who work together for the good of all 
                           to share each others content with others."

The act of sharing content is called Syndication.  

It is being said by some that it is the next wave of Internet Marketing.

From my experience I would agree.  I am certainly experiencing some Great Results.

Here are some of my stats from the past two months of me being an active participant in a Tribe:

1. Over 900 visits to my blog
2. Over 1200 page views on my blog
3. Average 10 comments per post
4. Average of 15 Re-Tweets
5. Average of 20 Facebook Shares

Before participating in a Tribe, my blog stats did not even register...

If you are looking to join a Tribe there are a lot to choose from.

Choose one that fits your needs.

I am part of an amazing group called The Tribe Syndication Association

It was created from the vision of Dave and Dawn Cook and has some amazing results.

Check it out for yourself and see the benefits first hand.

Last week I had the chance to meet up with a friend Johneal Rouse that I have got to  know through the TSA.

We shot a quick video to share with you our thoughts on the Power of the TSA and Tribes

Check it out here...

If you have been considering joining a Tribe get off the fence and do it now...

It will take you and all that you do to another level of excellence and opportunity.

Make it a great day!


God Bless!

Follow the Leader Who Follows the Leader


The GREAT Edward here,

It is a wonderful Spring day today, even feels a bit like summer.

Was out doing some yard work and cleaning up things.

My daughter brought out the patio furniture onto the deck in the back yard.

I look forward to sharing many sunsets and bbq dinners together with my family there.


Leaders and Leadership is a topic that I spend a lot of time studying and practicing in my life.

I strive each day to live the moments as a true leader for everyone.

So this week I went back to look at the definitions of Leadership and this one stood out for me

"The Ability to Lead."

Hmm... that sounds pretty straight forward to me.  

To be in a position of Leadership or a Leader you have to lead.  O.K.

To lead it must mean that you have followers so...

Leadership through this definition means you that you have followers.

To be a Leader your followers need to feel like you are going to take them somewhere.

For that to happen I believe that you have to have a definite purpose, a clear vision, and direction 

that can shared with others in such a way that they can make the choice to follow you or not.

This is good.  Makes sense to me.  You?

Then here is my question:  Can Leadership also be defined as "The Ability to Follow"?

I believe to be a Leader at one time in your life you had to be a follower... 

and that who you followed determined the Leader you became and are at this very moment.

So, as a leader do you ever stop being a follower? or do you just change the people that you follow?

How have the people that you have followed changed as your Leadership has?  Or is it the same?

If the people you follow have not changed then I believe one of the following to be true:

1. You are no longer growing in your Leadership


2. You have not yet reached the full Leadership potential of those who you are following

Hopefully you are leaning more towards the second one.  

If not, then it is probably time to pick up your torch and start following someone new.

They are waiting for you to show up!

So to be a Leader you need to have followers and you also need to be a follower of other great Leaders.

Be the Leader today that you were created to be...

Go out and follow a Leader today.

Follow The Leader Who Follows the Leader.

You deserve it!  and so do your followers!

To Your Abundant and Prosperous Success!
