I was on the phone the other day with my friend of 40 years (yikes! am I really that old? that sounds like something my mother would have said) and she shared how September triggers a feeling of new beginning. She went on to explain that as children we were conditioned that the end of summer marks the beginning of a new school year and how we were filled with excitement and anticipation of what the new school year would bring. I hadn’t really thought of it that way before and instead perceived September as the time for the final push to accomplish all the goals I set out to achieve in January. I just love this new perspective and invite you to do the same.
How perfect that this is also the time of Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, which falls on a new moon. Right now in this moment the tide of new beginnings surrounds us and gives us the opportunity to begin anew, refreshed and enthusiastic about all the possibilities before us.
When you infuse the excitement of a new school year into your plans and goals it takes on a new energy that allows you to enter the fourth quarter of 2012 with an optimistic outlook. Now is not the time to give up on the goals you set at the beginning of the year, now is the time to dust off your goal sheet and create your strategic plan for making this next quarter a winning one.
How exciting it is to consider all the new friends you’ll make this year, the new things you’ll learn and how fun it is to learn and grow. What will you wear on the first day of school? Do you have all the books, pens and notebooks you need? Now is the perfect time, as we enter the fourth quarter of 2012, to make sure we’ve got all the essentials we need to make the grade and hit our goals.
Who will your teachers be? What subjects will you study that will enhance your area of expertise?
When was the last time you thought about going back to school? When we were younger we were required to go to school to ensure that we continued to develop and grow. Once we reached the age of 18, it was now up to us to seek out the knowledge, resources and opportunities that would allow us to continue to stretch and grow. Rather than it being a given (that we would continue to learn), it became an option and often times the responsibilities of day to day life and work became the #1 priority putting continuous learning on the ‘when I get time’ list.
I invite you to join us this September and start your new school year atThe 5th Annual Prosperity UN-Conference!

Your teachers include Stedman Graham (NY Times Best Selling Author) and Loral Langemeier (The Millionaire Maker) alongside a world class line up of experts that we’ve assembled to get you the answers you want and need to achieve your goals.
We’ll have plenty of pens and notebooks ready for you, so join us and begin your New School Year at The UN-Conference!
It’s time to go shopping … what will you wear on the first day of school?
