Conference calls with Mike Jay + internet coaching offer + “my cup runneth over”

Two big events and a check-in below.

Three free teleconferences with Mike Jay on “Flawless Living” coming up, one of them hosted by me!

image Mike Jay is doing three free teleconferences over the coming month describing the Flawless Living system and business network.  The dates are as follows:

  • Tuesday October 26–7-8 pm EST. Henri Schauffler, CEO Focus business consultant will interview Mike on “The New Rules for Happiness and Success: What Every Person Needs To Know To Succeed In the New Economy
  • Wednesday November 3 – 10-11am EST. Marc Beneteau, founder of Word Press Academy, will explore the core concepts of Flawless Living and how they relate to personal and spiritual development.
  • Wednesday November 10 – 8:30-9:30pm EST. Olivia Parr-Rud, international speaker and author of “Business Intelligence Success Factors, Tools for Aligning Your Business in a Global Economy” will discuss the implications of Flawless Living for creating profitable values-driven businesses.

For more information and to register for the calls, click here.  (I did the site design btw, do you like?)

Now, these calls are going to be very powerful and should not be missed, regardless of who is hosting them ;).  Mike is, IMHO (In My Humble Opinion) one of the most brilliant minds on the planet on personal and business development from an integral (wholistic) perspective.  So if you want to find out what I have been ranting and raving about on this list for the last 4 months, sign-up to the calls. If you can’t make it live, you can listen to the recordings.

Also at that link, right underneath the first opt-in box, you can find Mike’s intro video of the Flawless Living system (very compelling), and also information about the Philadelphia Flawless Living workshop that is coming up Nov. 19-21.  If you can make it to Philadelphia that weekend, it’s going to be an amazing weekend.  I will explain more later.

A major new site by me, and a coaching offer…

I completed a major new offering over the weekend, one that has been struggling to be born for a very long time.  It’s called Lifestyle Design School and contains my first article:

Happiness is natural, but success is learned: my journey to happiness and success

This is for anyone who aspires to be, or who has already begun but wants to be more successful as, an internet entrepreneur.  All the information on the site, and even the private (email) coaching, is free for now. So if you are wondering about whether making money from the internet is possible for you, this is the way to start.

And finally a check-in…

Life has truly been amazing lately.  As I am transitioning to becoming a full-time information marketer and community-builder, I feel showered with blessings: interesting and meaningful work, great community, good health, family life is good… I can truly say “my cup runneth over”.  A dream I have had for almost 20 years, which is to make my living working part-time doing something I enjoy, with a lot of free time left to pursue interests and relationships, is coming to fruition. 

And yet… a strange paradox… all of my addictive / compulsive / neurotic tendencies, particularly around workaholism and caffeine, are very active.  I feel very happy and very productive, and yet not fully “whole”… my soul hungers for something more, some kind of daily connection to Spirit maybe, and I don’t quite know what to do about that… or maybe I do, but I am just resisting the type of surrender that I talked about in my previous article.

And of course this is all perfect, I see it as the tension that exists in all human striving and aspiration, the tension between that part of me that hungers for total freedom and transcendence, and that part of me that simply wants to be with all of the messy complicated business of life and of relationships and the endless problems and frustrations of life… in other words, those problems that make life interesting and worthwhile, who among us would want a life without any problems, how boring would that be?

Thomas Moore talks about this in “Care of the Soul”, he calls it the tension between “psyche” and “soul”, “soul” being that part of us that will not be separated from the messy business of life, that refuses to “rise” to some imagined clarity of purpose and purity of emotion, and instead loves to throw sticks into our spokes and slow us down with so-called neurotic symptom.  “Soul” likes to remind us that no matter how much we know or think we know, we are still just “beginning students of the art of living (and of loving)”. 

And so I am learning to hold that tension better, not to take it so personally or myself so seriously, and not trying to disappear it either… and yet (and this is the paradox) the effort to understand and manage that tension is also genetically inborn and cannot be silenced (at least not at my current level of spiritual realization ;)), so I keep on trying.  I will write about it on my next article at Lifestyle Design School, called Success requirements and the design of an effective performance management system.

However you will need to subscribe to Lifestyle Design School to get that article, since this list (Marc’s Life and Travels) is going to be much more about soul-work going forward and less about performance management. 

With love,

Marc
