Dear Friends and Partners,

I receive Steve Chandler's Imindshift newsletter weekly. Steve is a tremendous force when it comes to creative thinking, and stark reality checks. He's able to look at himself with blunt honesty and then push through until he gets to the (sometimes unpleasant) core of personal challenge. For our mid-month update, I wanted to send you an excerpt from Steve's email all of which is Steve Chandler's personal content on Imindshift.

"Most people never run far enough on their first wind to find out they've got a second. Give your dreams all you've got and you'll be amazed at the energy that comes out of you." ~ William James

"Find a path and stay on it. Don't quit. Keep walking. You will arrive. You will get tired and winded, but the second wind will always kick in for you when your body, which is bluffing, realizes you are not going to quit. Choose a path and stay on it.

We place too high a value on comfort. We have lost the old fashioned work ethic. No one has ever written a book (though I have been tempted)called Great Moments in Human Comfort.

But a mind shift can turn it back in an instant.Now you are working for the pleasure of working.And because you didn't quit, you got your second wind and now you pass everyone else because they never even know what a second wind is." Steve Chandler

I hope you find this snippet from Steve Chandler's newsletter as insightful as I did.

Alberta Booming Again As It's Forecast To Lead Country In Economic Growth
Real GDP increase of 4% this year

By Mario Toneguzzi, Calgary Herald, June 12th 2012

CALGARY — Alberta will be the country’s leader in economic and employment growth in the next two years, says a report released Tuesday by RBC Economics.

The report said Alberta will see real GDP growth of 4.0 per cent this year followed by 3.9 per cent next year while employment growth will be 2.8 per cent this year and 2.6 per cent in 2013.

The province will top all provinces in both categories in each of the two years with the exception of GDP growth in 2013 which will tie it for the best in the country with Saskatchewan. GRAB THIS STORY
