Magic is Real
3 years ago, I wrote a small book called Grow with Flo: Build a More Balanced Business, 30 Plays in 30Days. It’s a workbook with 30 daily exercises designed to help create a positive shift in the readers professional and personal aspirations. There is a section on creating relationships with people that inspire you. I recommend reaching out to authors, speakers, television personalities, etc. to share with them how what you are receiving from them has impacted you. It’s interesting because a gentlemen named, Wolfgang Obermaier, from Vienna Austria downloaded my book and reached out to me, as I recommended and while we haven’t connected via a SKYPE session yet, I have an intention of finding out more about him to see if their are any opportunities to collaborate in the future. I am not sure why or how the Universe saw fit that our lives should interceded, but it has and I know that following my curiosity has rarely not bore fruit in either a blessing or a lesson.
How is this magic?
Well, let me share exactly what I recommended:
Excerpt from Grow with Flo
Day 18: After Reading or Seeing Something that Inspires You, Contact the Creator.
“Let us be grateful to people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.” — Marcel Proust
People are extremely accessible through social media these days. I have contacted authors, bloggers, musicians, artists, chefs, you name it, several times and the value that you receive from these relationships could definitely help expand your expertise, reach, strategy and overall business. In some cases, the relationships have developed into clients, collaborations, and even friendships.
For example: I subscribe to Success Magazine and every month they provide a CD with some incredible people and speakers being interviewed. One of the guests blew me away with his story of how he was inspired to run his first marathon and has since completed 18 of them and 12 Ironman competitions. The death of his father too early from a heart attack was the catalyst and he went from an overweight, stressed-out finance guy to a fitness and health advocate. Our stories are actually quite similar and I reached out to him via Facebook. He instantly wrote back and subscribed to my newsletter and he expressed a desire to one day work together. I am not sure in what capacity yet, but now I am building the relationship virtually and am enjoying receiving his information that can serve my health coaching clients and me personally.
Exercise of the Day: If you have done yesterday’s exercise, then you may have an example of something that inspired you from that work. Reach out to the author on Twitter, Facebook or some other platform and tell them how it is impacting you. Your positive feedback will be well received as most people put out work that they hope will advance the reader on some level.

In the book Think in Grow Rich by Napoleon, the first key to wealth is to have a Burning Desire. I wrote in my book 3 years ago that the person that I am now collaborating with had a desire to partner in some way. We didn’t know how but today a show called Fired Up with Flo launched and what I wrote all those years ago manifested.
In Charles Hannel’s The Master Key System, the work that Napoleon Hill utilized to create Think in Grow Rich states. . .
Thought is energy. Active thought is active energy; concentrated thought is a concentrated energy. Thought concentrated on a definite major purpose becomes power.
Infinite energy ever dwelling in man, constantly creating and recreating his body, mind and ready at any moment to manifest through him in any needful manner. In exact proportion to the recognition of this truth will be the manifestation in the outer life of the individual.
The method which is producing such extraordinary results that many think that miracles are being accomplished.
Your mind is a crystal ball and your thoughts written down through the pen and concentrated through mental repetition of a desire is the wand.
You can magically create anything with a belief and desire to ignite the fire.
