May 26th was a momentous day in the lives of many Moncton locals as we were in the presence of Jack Canfield, best-selling author and motivational speaker. I’ve been to these things before and walked away inspired but it wasn’t until this day I walked away knowing some steps to take and the direction I’d be going.

Not only is Canfield responsible for what I’ve been doing since that day but Moncton’s own Martin Latulippe is as well. Martin was the one who pointed out the DK – Dream Killer and warned us all about their presence in our life and how we can ignore them, why they are there and that we all do have them. He knew we could put names to our own as my mind conjured up the image of a few people in my life who had control over me before – HAD control! Now, like Jack Canfield advised, I’m asking the questions knowing the answer can simply be “no” but if not asked is already a “no”. Once asked can easily be a “yes”!

And, for the most part, I’ve only been hearing Yes’s! And I love it!

This past Saturday I had two readings of Sending You Sammy at the YMCA in Moncton during their Healthy Kids Day event. I hesitated before my day with Jack Canfield because they’ve said no before by simply not getting back to me. I thought it doesn’t hurt to ask again as it’ll only put me in their mind once more and what does that hurt. This time they replied and with a Yes! The readings went pretty well and I was welcomed happily by everyone involved plus my name was on a board for everyone to see as they walked in! This is something magnificent to see by any emerging author.

I asked another organization who, for now, may remain nameless about an event I came up with. A huge stunt that will get my community talking, laughing, and thinking about health in a whole new way – three awesome things! They are all for it!! And so this coming Saturday I’ll be hosting a Live Superhero Showdown who’s motto is ” Come have a ball. Be a Monkey, and go Banana’s!!” I can’t wait! I’ve been emailing all the media in the area in trust that more than one publication will pick up on this amazing story.

This event will be followed by a book signing at our local, and only “new and big name” bookstore – Chapters! Although they’ve been difficult to deal with in the past they are being remarkable considering my immediate requests for scheduling.

I know I’m not the only one who is having success after hearing Canfield. I’ve been reading blogs, status updates, etc about the impact he has made and these are only from the people I personally know. Moncton is filled with great achievers and dream killers, it’s up to people like me to outnumber those who want everyone else to fail. And, guess what, I know my vision and I’m making it happen.

My objectives:

Sell 50 copies of Sending You Sammy’s by August 31st, 2011 at 6PM AST and 100 copies of Arm Farm by September 30th, 2011 at 5:00 PM AST.

I know I will achieve this as I’ll keep asking until I do.

Thanks Jack and Martin, I’ve been motivated!

And, of course, Thanks for reading,

Sarah Butland

  1. That is so great Sarah, very happy for you. I wanted to to see Jack Canfield but was just not possible. Maybe I’ll make an effort to go see him if I hear he is coming in our area (Mariitnes).
    Surrounding yourself with people who only want you to succeed will definitely make an impact on your success. Because it makes you believe that you can achieve your dreams. It boosts your spirits and gives one the needed drive to not give up.
    You have a great talent for writing.
    I am sure you will achieve what you are striving for in the very near future. 🙂

    • Thank you Therese. I am confident now with who I am and what I need to do to show the world… I am putting my left above my right for those who know what that means… for those who don’t, I’ll explain.

      Hold your hand. Notice which thumb is prominent, now switch. Does it feel uncomfortable?
      If you keep doing something the same way it gets you to where you are. Try something that pushes your limits and you’ll get beyond them!

      Surrounding myself with those who want me to succeed and want to succeed themselves is what I’m working on.

  2. Yay! Saturday sounds like an amazing experience – kind of think I know what will be happening now though! So exciting.
