Today I show you a proven, effective SECRET for increasing your focus and experiencing a “Vacation Day” as often as you desire.


It’s not a destination, but a decision. One that’s based on a lifestyle that YOU choose.

What makes a “vacation” a vacation?

1. We choose it.

We exercise our power of choice, which allows us to get razor sharp with our focus, efficiency, and effectiveness.

We can experience a “vacation day” even while we’re doing our day-to-day life.

Why? Because we’re CHOOSING it.

It isn’t a “have to,” but instead it’s a “get to.”

2. We set the DATE.

Then we declare it a “vacation day.”

Once it’s scheduled, we plan and prepare for it.

Next we experience it.

We can do this on any given day.

A conscious shift in our mindset changes everything.

Your DATE becomes the target for creating what you desire. Efficiently and effectively.

3. We’re good to ourselves. We allow ourselves to receive the blessing of relaxation, refreshing, and restoration.

This is something you can do on any given day. It’s up to you to decide.

You don’t have to go somewhere to be in this mindset, or be good to yourself.

You don’t need to leave your daily life to have this kind of refreshing, restoration, and relaxation.

You can choose to have a “vacation lifestyle.”

This is a razor focused way of living, and creating the life you choose to live.

Please grab your SACRED S.O.L. D.A.T.E. JOURNAL (Daily Action To Engage yourself.)


Declare a day that you’re going to make your “VACATION DAY.”

Schedule it. Start talking about it. Call it your “vacation day.” Make plans for it. Experience your “vacation day” doing your regular day-to-day ordinary life in an EXTRAORDINARY way.

Begin to create a vacation-style life.

Take your ordinary and make it extraordinary.
