Today is Super Bowl Sunday, when the competitive nature of Americans comes out even stronger than it does on Election Day! It’s a day we identify very strongly with things outside ourselves as “the competition.” What if, instead, from today forward, you chose to compete only with yourself – to each day be more of all you’ve been called to be, to be more present and more loving, more productive, creative, generous, and more connected to your Source than the day before. What do you think you could achieve if you competed WITH yourself instead of AGAINST the world?

Self competition, the desire to grow, is the theme of our lead story, which shares the power in one ordinary child’s intentions. Today is a coda to his already achieved dream.

This month, we are officially 20 years old.  Over the past two decades, we’ve watched the “manifesting” movement go mainstream and we’ve watched the economy rise and fall. And we’ve watched tens of thousands achieve their dreams. Whether you’re a newbie to my work or you’ve been here all along, I am grateful for your support, for sharing my work with others, and for buying my books, cds and dvds, and attending my events. You are why I choose to break through old boundaries and limiting beliefs and continue to do the work I do. As my thank you, all month long, EVERYTHING I OFFER IS 20% OFF, including the already tremendously discounted Financial Strategy Sessions you’ll find at the end of this issue (that special ends Feb. 15, though, so grab ‘em fast!)

Before we dive in, on a somber note, I got word last month that a much-admired peaceworker, Chris Edwin Dahl of the Minnesota chapter of Parents of Murdered Children passed away. His Light shines on in all who were blessed to cross paths with him. You can experience his work by listening to the powerful Conflict Free Zone radio interview Chris did with me. I dedicate this month’s issue to my brother-in-peace. R.I.P. Chris. http://www.blogtalkradio.com/conflictfreezone/2012/07/03/conflict-free-zone-w-paula-langguth-ryan-ani-pathik-law.

1) DO YOU SET INTENTIONS AS POWERFULLY AS THIS?

What would you have told your 10-year old self about who you would be at age 17? Here’s what one 4th grade California student wrote in response to his teacher’s assignment:

“I think in 7 years I will be between 6 ft- to 6 ft 4 inches 140 pounds. I hope I go to a good college in football then go to the pros and play on the niners or the packers … (Read the rest of San Francisco 49’ers Quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s story at: https://www.facebook.com/notes/paula-langguth-ryan/do-you-set-intentions-as-powerfully-as-this/540670879298144)

2) ARE CREDITONE AND FIRST PREMIER BANK PLATINUM CREDIT CARDS FOR BAD CREDIT A GOOD IDEA?

Looking to rebuild your credit score, get new credit after bankruptcy or get access to credit when your credit is in the toilet? Folks with low credit scores or recent bankruptcies are getting deluged with pre-approved credit offers that seem too good to be true, according to folks who have sent me copies of the applications recently. So what’s the deal with these offers? A pre-approved unsecured credit card should do more than just report your credit scores and help you raise your FICO score. A good unsecured card should also make good financial sense. Too often the FEAR of having to rely ONLY on the income that comes in makes people jump at credit card offers that financially will put them in the poorhouse.

Let’s start with a review of CreditOne Bank. CreditOne bills itself as “one of America’s leading issuers of VISA Platinum credit cards.” That in itself tells us a lot about the current state of the US economy since they are one of the largest issuers of subprime credit cards.

Right now, CreditOne is mailing out offers of a “pre-approved credit line up to $1,500.” Here’s why I… (Read the rest of this story at: https://www.facebook.com/notes/paula-langguth-ryan/are-creditone-and-first-premier-bank-platinum-credit-cards-for-bad-credit-a-good/527019380663294)

3) THAT’S WHAT I CALL A PROSPERITY CONSCIOUSNESS
“Do all you can with what you have, in the time you have, in the place you are,
do all you can….”Do All You Can Lyrics, Devotion (www.devotionsings.com)

Two amazing stories I came across recently. First, did you hear about Curtis Jackson in Chicago? Not 50-Cent, but the OTHER Curtis Jackson? From December 2010 to May 2011 he plunked down over $9,000 to pay for a hotel room for a single mom and her 10-year old son after the woman lost her job as a banker and had her home foreclosed on. “I’m one of the richest men on earth, ‘cause I have God,” said Curtis. “Money is not my master.”

Here’s what’s unusual about this story. Curtis Jackson has no assets and has been homeless since 2004. The woman in the story? She used to stop and give him money and talk with him over the years, when she would see him panhandling. After losing her job and then her home, the woman and child were living in her truck for three months – until Child Services threatened to take the child away if she didn’t come up with something safer. Her social worker gave her money from her own pocket to get a hotel room for a few days and come up with a plan. That’s when Curtis Jackson stepped in.

6) HOW MUCH OF YOUR HOLIDAY BILLS ARE LEFT TO PAY OFF?
What amount of your holiday bills do you still have left to pay off? (Remember to include the “buy now/pay later” and “stretched out over 6-12 month credit offers!). I was just featured in a new article about 6 ways NOT to pay off credit card debt from the holidays. Enjoy: http://www.creditcards.com/credit-card-news/6-bad-ways-pay-holiday-debt-1267.php (Article includes great tips on better ways to pay off the debt….)

That’s all for this month! If you want to get a handle on your debts, or get some clarity about your finances, or create a plan for your financial future, consider a 30 minute Financial Strategy Session with me. Until February 15, we’re running a $99 special for 30 minutes and a $150 special for 60 minutes (which you can use in 6 minute increments!) To book yours: http://www.paulalangguthryan.com/coaching/ (Remember to use coupon code Y25K48SCP to get an extra 20% savings on your sessions!)

How effective is a 30 minute session? Here’s what one client said after hers last week: “Ten years ago, Paula Langguth Ryan did a workshop at my former B&B and Retreat Center, Harmony Oaks. Today she gave me financial peace of mind in only thirty minutes. Four years of recession struggle put to rest. God bless Paula Langguth Ryan!!! If you need help, check out her website for lots of free info AND get a thirty minute session with her!!! It’s priceless!”

Every time something “happens” in our life – an event, a physical ailment, anything at all, we have a choice… I choose to immediately look at how my thoughts and beliefs are creating it…and what my payoff might be for keeping it… I challenge you to do the same today!

Peace and prosperity,

Paula Langguth Ryan
