I Am Deserving

By Geno Stampora on March 9, 2015

Many of you have heard me read you the letter: “I Am Deserving”. Written by Louise I. Hay, the words in this letter offer us a reminder that we are responsible for our destiny. We do not have to remain or be a victim of the negative thoughts, opinions or limitations place on us by others! We, alone, have the key to be….WHATEVER WE WANT!                     WE    ARE    DESERVING ! ! I AM DESERVING…. I am responsible for me. I will not allow others to occupy space in my mind if they limit my thinking. I deserve more.  I deserve a good life.  I deserve to be all I can be!       Enjoy your copy of this letter.  Read it often.  Print it.  Frame it. Be deserving.

A history lesson…

People say if you’re hungry, you’ll succeed. I was hungry, but it was only until I realized I had to change me that I could be. It took about 35 years and dozens of mentors to see who was inside of me. I made a decision to change, to stop drifting, to focus and be on point. It was an intentional choice. We all have the same choice, every day. But it takes guts. It takes the courage to step out of your comfort zone and make the changes. If you do what you’ve always done, you’ll get what you’ve always gotten. It was time for me to change things up. I wanted to be with smart people with integrity. I went to the library. I grew myself. I paid attention. I took Led Zeppelin out; I put in the …


The Greatest Enemy of Learning is Knowing

By Geno Stampora on July 12, 2012

One of the best lessons I have ever learned is this:  the greatest enemy of learning is knowing. Once you think you know, you build a barrier that prevents you from becoming more. One of the major keys to life is to always be searching for more.  We must always be looking to learn.  Some say it is to “have a student’s heart”.  Some say just always seek knowledge. The only real thing that separates us from others is our willingness to learn and to use that new learning in a positive way.  Every now and then, it is a good idea to actually reserve time in your day or week for learning.  This will require some planning.  “What does not get scheduled, does not get done.”  You could read, study a CD or DVD or just observe to learn …


The Art of Balance in Life (It’s All About Your Plan)

By Geno Stampora on May 8, 2012

The art of balance in life has always been a great challenge for me personally. Balance is the elusive butterfly in life. There are times it is there and then in a moment it is gone. This is normal. It happens. I believe the first step to achieving balance is to study your quality of life. I try to make every major decision with my personal and family quality of life in mind. How will this affect me? How will this affect my family? Be realistic though. Do you like to shop? Do you like nice stuff? Do you like to travel? Do you like a nice car? Do you want to live in a nice house? All of these questions and more can and will affect your definition of balance. I am lucky. I love what I do for a living. …
