I lived in the Hamptons on the eastern end Long Island, New York for most of my life.
Often, you could find me at one of my favorite spots: the inlet to the Shinnecock Bay that separates Southampton and Hampton Bays.
On the Hamptons Bays side is where you find me for this account.
I sat in my truck, as I often did, just watching the ocean, people, birds, life…
I think it was towards the end of summer as many people were out but it wasn’t too hot.
Out of the corner of my eye I noticed a seagull hopping. Something was definitely wrong with him.
Immediately, as if directed by some unseen intelligence, I grabbed a knife out of my center console and the towel off of my passenger’s seat.
Taking a circuitous route towards the distressed bird, I sneaked up behind him as Ninja as possible.
He was severely tangled in fishing line and every time that he flapped his wing up the hook would dig into his leg and kind of trip himself.
That’s why when you fish you always make sure to properly dispose of any unwanted line.
I’m pretty sure some of his mean seagull friends were laughing at him but even worse was the fact that he was extremely likely to become fox food.
I threw the towel around him to trap his wings and wrapped him up like a baby so that he couldn’t move or flap.
Basically, he surrendered to me as if he knew I was going to help him.
So, I started cutting and untangling the line and removed the hook from his leg.
Like I said, he was severely tangled so this whole endeavor must have taken 15 minutes or more.
I was totally “in the moment” and totally unaware of what was going on around me.
A large crowd gathered and watched me.
Eventually, I completed my mission and said goodbye to the bird.
But before removing the towel, when he knew that he was OK, he looked as me as if to say how much he appreciated my help but he was obliged to give me a token “peck” because the other birds were watching.
I clearly understood.
I let him go.
He gave me half-hearted peck and flew away.
The crowd behind me started clapping and cheering.
I had no idea…
It’s difficult to explain how good of a freeing it was to free that seagull.
Helping and having positive impact is one of the best feelings in life.
I had purpose, took inspired action and created a positive consequence.
Such an amazing feeling. I can even feel it now as I write this.
Also, I get it when I coach someone to a personal success.
And, It’s even more intense when I coach someone to find their purpose, take inspired action and create positive consequences, results and/or impact for themselves.
I know this is a simple little story, but the effects are massive.
And, the little successes add up to a life well lived.
I call these little success stories “Seagull Stories”.
Feel free to share your Seagull Stories below. I would love to hear them…
Most importantly however, is that when you are living, or re-living, the little successes, you are not living and re-living your failures, disappointments, traumas and current dramas.
So, would you like to experience the highs of purpose and positive impact on a more frequent basis?
I can help you.
If you are not creating Seagull Stories daily, you are not living your best life.

I’m sure you do. Almost everybody does.
It’s a subtle, nagging feeling that you typically ignore. A feeling like something is missing, wrong or incomplete.
A feeling that maybe you have difficulty naming.
Maybe you feel like your on the wrong path, you left something behind or you are not whole.
All these feeling arise from the same issue: you have not “self realized” yet.
You do not know your “essential self” and you are a slave to your ego.
Then, you probably hate being alone in quiet where the feeling becomes more apparent.
Do you always put on the TV or Radio while alone? Ever tell yourself that you need to stay informed or you deserve the entertainment because you had a hard day?
Likely, you distract yourself so that you don’t have to be alone with yourself because this uncomfortable feeling becomes more pronounced.
Your primary purpose in life is to know and express your essential self.
But how can you if you don’t know who you truly are?
This is no way to live because you are truly wasting your life.
Every minute that you don’t know who you are, you are wasting your time and life living in futility.
If you don’t know who you are, how can you ever know your purpose or your desires?
How can you ever live the life you were truly meant to live?
Whatever you do will always leave you feeling incomplete, dissatisfied, unfulfilled, discontent and frustrated.
The good news is that you don’t have to waste your life living in misery and futility…
You can live a fulfilling life of health, happiness and abundance.
And, it’s not difficult.
I discuss how to know who you, as well as how to know what you want, get what you want and a few other critically important life mastery techniques, in my Greater Powered Blueprint..
The fastest and easiest way to know who you are, and what you want and how to get it, is by getting personal coaching with me.
Very few people have the knowledge, skills and understanding to help you and I do.
And, soon you will be one of the rare, few people who knows who you are, what you want and how to create it.
So, stop wasting your life, eliminate the feeling like something is missing and start living the life that you were truly meant to live.
Sure, it makes sense that If you don’t know what you want, you will never be able to get what you want. But…
There is a proceeding step that is rarely ever talked about by the so called experts. It’s rarely ever talked about because, yes they can help you get what you think you want, but they themselves have skipped this critically important first step.
The first step to getting what you want is knowing who you are.
Let me explain…
The reason this step is critically important is because that if you don’t know who you truly are, nothing you get will ever make you happy.
When you get what you “think” you want, there will always be a level of disappointment or dissatisfaction.
Your heart will never sing until you get what you “truly” want.
And the only way to get what you truly want is to know who you truly are; not who you think you are.
Who you think you are is your ego. It is the misidentification of who you are.
Who you truly are is the witness that never changes. It is your essential self. It is the source of you.
If you have no clue of your essential self, you are wasting your life in futility.
You will never have, do or experience that which truly makes you joyous.
Even if by worldly standards you are successful, you will always be experiencing an emptiness inside.
That’s part of why the rich and famous kill themselves. They seemingly have everything yet still feel unfulfilled. So, why continue?
Well, you don’t have to live an empty, hollow, disappointing, unfulfilled, worthless life.
Then, once you know who you are, you can get everything that you truly desire.
Living the life that you were truly meant to live eliminates all those negative, empty, hollow, disappointing, unfulfilled feeling and replaces them with feelings of purpose, satisfaction, fulfillment, abundance and joy.
It simply is a choice to spend some time discovering yourself or continue trying in futility to make yourself happy using worldly endeavors.
Jesus teaches us “But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.”
I’m saying the same thing, just different words.
So, the question becomes: how to know my essential self.
The Blueprint is free.
Both are great choices to discover exactly how to start. And, they both move on from there helping you to get everything that you truly want out of life.
My Greater Powered Coaching Program will just help you get there faster.
