We all have things that fill us with light and excitement, but reality usually means most of us aren’t living our passions every day. Between work and family commitments, chores and social engagements, passions are often last on the list. Maybe the idea of living your dream feels too far to reach from where you are now? That was me a few years ago.
I was working full-time in the corporate world, and at the end of the week I had just enough energy to do the essentials before starting all over again on Monday. My life was mundane and passionless, and making a change felt far too big.
Thank you Polaris – your success education curriculum certainly kicked me in the butt and let my passion out! Beyond Freedom Evolution taught me that finding what you love and living it isn’t one big step.
It doesn’t mean quitting your job, selling your house and diving right in. There are decisions and actions you can start today, no matter where you are in your life right now.
Shane Krider, CEO of Polaris Global, explains in the online video content included in the BFE curriculum – the joy you feel from pursuing something you love, combined with the satisfaction and momentum gained from taking action on your dreams, will push you into a state of mind far beyond where you’d be if you did nothing at all.
And let me tell you – it feels good!
Why don’t you give it a shot?

You know when you set yourself a new goal, you bolt out of the blocks, ready to take on the world! But then sometimes focus wains, results start tilting and before you know it, you’re feeling the disappointment of not reaching your goal by your deadline. Doh!
Bring it on!
This was me. Over and over and over. Until I studied Beyond Freedom Evolution (BFE) and then I had the A-HA I didn’t know I was looking for. Sustaining motivation for a long-term goal is hard to achieve (duh!). BFE solution – create a new habit, belief and mindset that will lead to achieving your goal by breaking it into manageable pieces.
Want to run a marathon? First create the habit of running every day. Want to get out of debt and start saving? Take your lunch to work, or watch DVDs instead of going to the movies. (All things on my list).
By breaking down your goal into small pieces, step-by-step as BFE takes you through it, you are focusing on what you have to achieve each day. You are focusing on something you can obtain. That little daily change will add up to a huge change over time and you’ll be surprised at how far you’ve come.
Best BFE advice… Don’t try to change the world, take baby steps at first and before you know it you’re winning!
How do you change your habits?

As part of the Polaris Global community, and students of Beyond Freedom Evolution, we know nothings changes if nothing changes. It’s a necessary part of our development and leads us closer to our goals of success. I’m sure some of you can relate when I say, that the journey can be like riding a bike.
Hands free, thanks Polaris!
Sometimes I’m pedaling super fast, it’s easy (maybe too easy), and I’m zooming… then SMASH! I fall off.
Or sometimes I’m going so slow, I stand up and push and push and… I fall off.
But up we get! Ready to go again because we’re supposed to fall down. Right? It’s part of the journey and BFE teaches us, these falls help us become our most successful selves. All those scabby knees and elbows are taking us to our new direction.
In conversations with Shane and Rachel Krider, Co-Founders of Polaris Global, they explained this concept quite beautifully. Our individual evolution is an organic process; the whole point of it is the journey. When we shortcut the course of action, lose focus or listen to those pesky Stoppers, our wheels end up spinning. We don’t get anywhere.
So with my BFE mindset, I know this new graze brings me one step closer to my goal. So up I get…pedaling away… I know I can, I know I can.
And pretty soon I’m cruising. Hands free!

The visions in your head create the life you live! Everyone who knows Polaris Global knows this, but it is worth re-iterating. It literally affects every single area of our lives from starting an exercise regime, to building a business.
One of the best things Beyond Freedom Evolution ever did for me was to ‘believe it’ (Departure Part Two – page 60). Change your mindset, change your beliefs, and you can change your life.
This was an easy exercise in theory. I wasn’t expecting much from the outcome. Think positively about what you do every day, make note of any changes in your Pocket Pad app. See if there is a pattern emerging in a specific area of life. Apply your findings.
So mine went like this… wake up, picture place of work (pre Polaris Global role), roll back to sleep until the second round of snooze. I’d see my lengthy to-do list, dreading it. So I made a conscience decision to look forward to it. I’d jump out of bed, ready for action. I’d picture a positive outcome. I did this every day for a week.
And you know what happened? Change. Colleague’s attitudes, the quality of my work, accolades and positivity flowed. It was easy for me to recognize this change and apply this mindset to other areas of my life. And it shows.
So as Polaris Global and BFE teaches us, when we have pictures in our head that we dread, we are never going to have a good day. If we take time to focus on a positive outcome, we could have a great day, a great week, a great month, and ultimately a great year.
I totally ‘believe it’. I’m living it! How about you?

So we know the theme for November is change. It sure is ringing true in my house. While I’m coping with everything being thrown at me, I revisited my Polaris Global Beyond Freedom Evolution curriculum and did some serious revision.
Change is difficult - Polaris Global can make it worth it
Firstly, take a deep breath, recognize the need for change and make a conscious decision to accept it. Check!
Make the choice to actively change, not be a passive passenger. Lead the charge.
Be clear on your desired outcome. Let this be your compass guide. Crystallize your vision.
Believe in your decision, recognize and acknowledge any Stoppers, and action the steps to go around them and continue towards your North Star.
Take small steps to start and then more boldly as you feel confident. It’s all action!
Follow through – keep on trucking! If you stay focused, you will reach your goal.
I have to say, these BFE guides have saved me. My life is currently in a state of flux, and the guidance I have found through Polaris Global has kept me from feeling completely overwhelmed. The steps, exercises and teachings have turned this huge challenge into a very exciting journey.
As a student of BFE, I know how it can change your life. But this is such a practical use of the curriculum; it has just propelled my gratitude. In a highly stressful life situation, I am seeing nothing but strength, empowerment and can’t wait to get to the other side and celebrate my victory.
How about you?

Everyone in the Polaris Global corporate office this month is talking about the changing season, and how this is a good time to be clear on your direction and motivation. It’s the perfect opportunity to clarify your North Star, to make sure your drive to transform is by design, and not the result of reactions to change and fear.
Your guiding force - your north star
It might be a good time to check out what BFE has to say about your North Star in Departure One, Part One, and share your thoughts in the Mastermind. There’s a great new discussion forum on the BFE homepage. A new format, new design, new content, and an exciting new area for BFE themed dialogue. There are some great stories published here that highlight the importance of your North Star, and what can be achieved when you never lose sight of it.
In a recent conversation with Shane Krider, he left me with this insight. “Your north star isn’t a goal, accomplishment or destination. Your north star is the guiding principle you abide by for the goals, accomplishment and destinations you choose to pursue. It can be your words to live by, or what you believe in.”
My North Star has never been brighter – the gravitational pull has grabbed me. My direction is clear. Bring on November!

One of Polaris Global’s best innovations is the highly significant addition to the Beyond Freedom Evolution curriculum – their online journal system and BFE PocketPad app.
BFE app in your pocket - yes please!
Journaling is a secret weapon. It can be the key to reaching those levels of success you didn’t know you could achieve. We all have doubts. I tend to stew these in my mind more than most. So having a tool to get it out, and see it, read it, often allows me to recognize that a lot of my doubts are trivial. I find, as I’m journaling, my subconscious starts highlighting my strengths, and paths to manoeuvre around these obstacles to get to my goal. And voila… a win!
Polaris Global specifically engineered their exclusive social media and journal system to allow a safe harbour vessel for this success exercise to occur for every BFE student. This tool is invaluable. And it is accessible on your Smart Phone through the BFE PocketPad app <link> to ensure you never miss an entry.
The BFE app is free for both iPhone and Android users, and is available for download from the iPhone App Store and the Google Play Store. Simply search for “Pocket Pad” and locate the BFE logo.
The app supplies a readily available note pad that syncs to the relevant areas of each user’s BFE Success Journal. This broadens the flexibility of BFE journaling and success experience.
Has journaling helped you? I certainly couldn’t live without it. Let me know your thoughts.

The Future Self concept introduced in Polaris Global’s Beyond Freedom Evolution, is one that really struck me during my first study of the curriculum. It has stuck with me ever since. I have regular conversations with my Future Self, and this internal dialogue has evolved during my personal development journey with BFE. I’ve realized your mind should work for you, not the other way around. I had to become friends with my mind first. “Okay, I know I need you Future Self, so I’d like to be better friends with you if you don’t mind. I want the best for you so let’s do this together.”
I do every day!
And this worked for me. Once I recognized this tool of consulting with my Future Self could help me obtained my goals, it accelerated my wins, gave me purpose and the dialogue became easier. “I want to make sure to support you, make your job easier and more fun. What can I do to make that happen?”
Now the conversations are like speaking to a great friend. The banter is quick and chatty. “Hi there Future Self. How are things going today? Thanks for all that stuff we figured out yesterday / last week / last year. You are super cool. So how’s life on the other side of this humungous project of mine? Feeling pretty great I bet. Got any tips? Let’s do this thing!”
These tiny changes in the way my inner monologue sounds has made a huge difference to my focus, my direction and my success. Who knew such a simple concept could be so powerful? Well, Polaris Global. And my Future Self!

Life sure can throw you some obstacles. Lately I feel a bit like the little dude in Donkey Kong, jumping barrels being hurled at me from everywhere! I’m sure we’ve all been there at some point. Where you just want to yell to the Universe “give me a break!”
Jumping those hurdles with the help of Polaris Global
Well thank goodness for Polaris Global, leaders in personal leadership development, and their award-winning home-study product Beyond Freedom Evolution (BFE). Finding this success curriculum was a game changer for me. Now I can identify those life-challenging obstacles, way before they knock me over, and arm myself with the tools to get back on track ASAP.
BFE is such a great resource, I’ve just flicked back through it to refresh on how to ‘Identify the Stoppers’ and remind myself the best way to deal with them. Plus there’s always the exclusive Polaris Global online social media platform to give me that little extra support. Gotta love the safe harbor community for a pick-me-up when needed!
No matter what life throws at me now, I am always armed with a BFE mindset and I know if I stay focused on what I want, keep my spirits high, then I will make it through.
Polaris Global and their success education products are the key to a fulfilled life, and a sure-fire way to get on track to reach your goals. No matter what they are.
So bring it on Donkey Kong! BFE wins every time.

Hey BFE-ers! I had an impromptu two-week hiatus – apologies for the radio silence but enjoyed the forced time out. Nothing like life to keep you focused, right?
New look - same amazing opportunity.
So since my last blog, we’ve had Super Saturday! How awesome. We have received nothing but amazing feedback coming through headquarters. The M8 directors cruise is clearly a highlight. I’d love to hear about your experiences – please send them through the comments section. One of the favorite parts of my job is learning what you think about all things Polaris Global.
And how about the re-brand? Super classy! I’m loving the look of the new website. A slick, professional site, reflecting a successful company and a brilliant business opportunity. Very fitting. Love it.
So sock it to me… let me hear about Super Saturday and what it meant to you!
