Foundations for High Productivity

Healthy Body Healthy Mind

Healthy Body Healthy Mind

I feel inspired today to share a fundamental truth about how one sustains themselves for long periods of productivity. For one to create extraordinary results in their life they must have some fundamentals in place in order to sustain their energy levels at a high enough level and for extended periods of time.

Of course what we feed out body, plays an enormous role in the level of energy we have. Shane and I follow a particular formula (most of the time) to give ourselves the best possible platform to be able to produce at a high level. When one is tired, whether it be through lack of sleep or not eating consistent healthy meals, this of course has an impact on ones ability to make accurate, quick decisions. And the ability to then follow through with those decisions with the appropriate action is also impeded if you don’t have the fundamentals in place.

Our formula to set the body up for success is 6 healthy meals a day, plenty of water (8 glasses plus per day) and a good nights sleep. We enjoy controlled portions for breakfast, lunch and dinner, as well as 3 smaller snacks throughout the day.
It looks something like this….

8:00am -breakfast – usually eggs and turkey bacon with some wholewheat toast or maybe some oatmeal.
10:30 – snack – cottage cheese with some fruit or maybe some yogurt and fruit
1:00pm – lunch – quite often it’s left overs from the night before. a combination of protein and carbs
3:30pm – snack – fruit with cheese, maybe some crackers with turkey and tomato
6:30pm – Dinner – Always protein, chicken, steak or turkey with some balanced carb either salad or vege’s
9:00pm – snack – usually Shane’s favourite which is cottage cheese with fried banana’s and maple syrup. It’s healthy and delicious!

It takes a little bit of organisation to eat so often, but like anything in life, with a little bit of planning and follow through the habit is formed and it becomes a way of life. The results far exceed the little bit of effort and planning involved.

Try it for 30 days and Know For Yourself!

Beyond Freedom Evolution Impacting Family’s

Logan, Jaryd & Aiden

Logan, Jaryd & Aiden

I received many emails from customers sharing their wins with Polaris Global’s Beyond Freedom Program and so many of them really touch my heart. I found this email from Terrie particularly touching as through her use of the program it is effecting her kids in a really positive way. Thanks for allowing me to post your email and pics of your boys Terrie. xx

Hi Rachel,

Just wanted to share with you how Beyond Freedom Evolution has helped by boys Jaryd 16 and Aiden 15 in making one of the biggest decisions of their lives so far.

They both have been accepted for a soccer scholarship at a college in the USA. By using the concept of finding their North Star and compass headings and seeing their future self really helped them decide what their future looks like, also using the concept of leaving the herd also helped make their decision. While they went away and really wrote about these concepts and what their future looked like for them, their pros were more than the cons.

Being away from home for 4 years was the biggest hurdle for them. They weighed up following their friends to uni here, being in a familiar surrounding and coming home for breaks, v’s being in a new country and being by themselves, but living their dream of playing soccer and getting a degree at the same time and I glad to say they have decided to go for it.

Jaryd leaves in August 2014 and Aiden leaves in August 2015.

My youngest son Logan if accepted will leave for his scholarship in 2018.

I love the fact that I can use BFE with the kids to help their decisions in life become more clear and that they recognise that they can do everything they put their minds and heart to.

Celebrating Independence Day

Declaration of Independence

Declaration of Independence

With Fourth of July – Independence Day – just around the corner it prompted me to learn a little more about why my American friends celebrated this day. This intrigue led me to google where I came across references to the “Declaration of American Independence”.

The much publicized second paragraph of the document really caught my eye….
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

WOW! Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. Personal freedom for one to create a happy and fulfilling life by their own design and desires. This really struck me with respect to what we stand for at Polaris Global. I strongly believe that we provide a safe, if not the safest environment, for one to learn how to create a life full of happiness and abundance.

Personally I don’t know of another community that provides the encouragement, support and the “know how” for one to pursue tremendous levels of happiness.

I feel blessed that I attracted this company into my life. I remember all those years ago when I lost my job. The decision the company made to let me go really was the start of me creating my own independence. No longer did I have to be governed by the decisions of the company. I could choose a greater level of personal independence and self-governess by going into business for myself.

It takes courage, vision and determination for one to make the decision to become an entrepreneur. And it is the entrepreneurs of the world that contribute to the society and allow many to enjoy a degree of living that otherwise would not be possible. According to the US Small Business Administration in 2009 there were 27.5 million “small” businesses in the USA. (a small business has less than 500 employees).

Small firms:
• Represent 99.7 percent of all employer firms.
• Employ half of all private sector employees.
• Pay 44 percent of total U.S. private payroll.
• Generated 65 percent of net new jobs over the past 17 years.
• Create more than half of the nonfarm private GDP.
• Hire 43 percent of high tech workers ( scientists, engineers, computer programmers, and others).
• Are 52 percent home-based and 2 percent franchises.
• Made up 97.5 percent of all identified exporters and produced 31 percent of export value in FY 2008.
• Produce 13 times more patents per employee than large patenting firms.

To all the entrepreneurs out there – I congratulate you and commend you – Happy Independence Day from Polaris Global!

Polaris Global Award Winners

Polaris Global Award Winners

Award winners spent a night at “The Castle” in Las Vegas, along with Shane Krider and Greg Strom. It was an intimate environment for us to share future goals and mastermind about the future developments of Polaris Global. We also had some fun! The guys were treated to racing the latest elite cars (Ferrari’s, Lamborghini’s, McLaren’s, Porches etc) around a race track, while the girls celebrated with a shopping spree! We (meaning the girls, not the guys) were spruced up with professional hair and makeup and the Polaris Global film crew joined us to capture the moments. It was a great time and something that will stay in my memory for a long time to come.

Thanks for the experience guys, big congratulations!

Polaris Global hits a home run with most recent event

La Reve, Las Vegas

La Reve, Las Vegas

We have recently returned from our Polaris Global Sovereignty Live Event, hosted in Las Vegas Nevada.
It was simply an amazing and unforgettable experience. Polaris Global’s, CEO, Shane Krider delivered exceptional content all surrounding the “Energy of Money” and how to create wealth in ones life.

The Polaris Global Sovereignty Live event for 2012 goes down for me as the best event ever!

Below are just a couple of reviews we’ve received from the event. 98% of people said they’d definitely attend a future Polaris Global event. You can enjoy reading the rest of the reviews via the Polaris Corporate site (they will be live in a few days).

FABULOUS – not only did the means to create wealth double, but I was able to learn strategies of how to keep and build that wealth” Janine, Australia

“My biggest breakthrough was learning a process to make solid decisions for my financial future. Unforgettably fun, light and inspiring with fantastic applicable information. Thanks Polaris Global” Paul, Australia

“Shane’s ability to effectively communicate a simple, yet profound message is very apparent. He provides such clarity of creating wealth in my life, taking out the confusion. I’m now clear on how to build a solid financial wall around myself and my family. ” Lisa, USA

We learned, we celebrated and we all caught a fabulous show – Le Reve! If you ever have a chance to visit Las Vagas, it’s a must see!

All attendees have now been invited to participate in follow up private conference calls hosted by CEO of Polaris Global, Shane Krider, to assist them in implementing what was shared at the Sovereignty Live event.

We’d love to hear of your experience at the event or any past events you may have attended with Polaris Global. Post your comments below!

Sharing Your Vision For The Future



We had another fabulous Beyond Freedom Evolution Call at Polaris Global today. Belinda Byfield joined me as co-host for the call. Thanks Bel :o) You are such a true demonstration of someone really taking on board the principles of our Beyond Freedom Evolution. So proud of you. To go from someone who couldn’t even send an email when you first got started here, to someone who is now leading a team of people right throughout the world with Polaris is a true testament to the growth that has taken place within you. It’s so much fun for me to work along side you and to see just how far you’ve come.

But back to the call we had today…we spoke about one of the new DVD’s contained in the Action Program. Belinda took 20 pages of notes just after watching the DVD! Such a demonstration of someone being the student of self improvement. Thanks for giving me a kick up the butt Bel! I plan to look over the DVD again and take some notes this time round.

We also spoke about the power of speaking your future into reality. A great exercise to complete (from departure program) is to write out your future vision. So imagine the life that you desire to be living in say 2 years from now. Where are you living, what does your house look like, how many bedrooms, what sort of car are you driving, are you flying first class….?? Etc. So the key with this is that you write your future reality in the present tense, as if you are already there and then read it to yourself every day. You can literally speak your future into reality!

If you’re happy to share your future vision – I’d love you to post it here….. By sharing your vision with the universe you will bring it about much quicker than just keeping it to yourself.
To your success xx

Polaris Global Launches Beyond Freedom Evolution Success Stick!

The Success Stick

The Success Stick

Greetings Polaris Global friends and Associates!
Big news!! The Beyond Freedom Evolution University Success Sticks (USBs) have been shipped!!!

This marks the achievement of two major milestones for our company! It is the culmination of several years of hard work, focus and attention, and includes shipping Action, our final component of Beyond Freedom Evolution. With this we have also launched our new Learning Management Software, making Beyond Freedom Evolution an interactive computer-based learning experience!

This has been a massive undertaking and is a key step toward getting Beyond Freedom Evolution into the hands and hearts of many more people around the world. The Learning Management Software is proprietary and has been created (in cross-platform, for both PC and Mac) specifically for the Success Stick. As with all software launches, we expect a short period of adjustment and debugging as the final presentation is smoothed out. Our software features an auto-update function that makes it easy for us to provide immediate updates for anyone who plugs in their Success Stick. Just follow the prompt and your Success Stick is immediately updated with any enhanced functionality, advancements and/or design revisions. In the world of Beyond Freedom Evolution, one purchase really will bring a lifetime of new value and content.

Many people have worked on these two projects but there are at least four who pulled off seemingly superhuman feats (and maybe even a miracle or two!) in getting these projects to this stage of completion:

Special thanks goes to:
Greg – Multi Media Content Production
Mark – Project Management and IT
Sam – Project Management Programming
Chris – Programming

Each of these individuals made extreme personal sacrifices by spending many months working without days off and nearly around the clock.

Both the Action program and the Learning Management Software are well beyond the scope of the curriculum as originally envisioned. The Action program is actually about twice the content of either Departure or Decision. It includes over 35 written and video profiles of high-functioning, successful individuals and over 300 pages of instruction.

There are additional benefits of the new Beyond Freedom Evolution University platform. It allows us to push new content to existing customers at no cost to us, which allows us to invest 100% of our resources into to the content (not into shipping and product packaging costs). It allows us to create customized content for corporations and organizations. And it allows us to claim undisputed industry leadership in the Success Education category worldwide.

Today officially marks the end of pre-launch. Now it is full steam ahead!
Thank you,
Shane Krider

Change Is Essential For Shifts To Take Place

Be The Change

Be The Change

I’ve just come off a great Polaris Global Training Call. Each week the Polaris Global community come together on a global mastermind call to speak about the various concepts within our Award Winning Curriculum, Beyond Freedom Evolution. This week, leadership member, Lisa Molina joined me on the call discussing the breakthroughs that she’d experienced after completing a particular exercise in the BFE program.

This particular exercise encourages the students to write down how they feel and react to encountering change throughout their daily experience. Getting in touch with how we respond too and feel, right when the change occurs. Do we resist? Retreat? Panic? Roll with it?
When we set a goal to experience greater levels of success in our lives. Whether it be greater levels of financial success, relationships, health or otherwise, we are going to have to make changes and be willing to adapt to a new way of “being”, a new way of embracing certain tasks, which then allows us to experience the outcome of the changes we’ve made. The old saying – “if nothing changes, nothing changes”.

I’ve always thought of myself as someone who easily adapts to change. Although after the call today it’s got me thinking about just how well I do infact adapt to change and are there areas that I require a greater level of awareness in order to respond in a more productive and effective way? Of course there are. So over the next 7 days….the challenge is on. Taking the time to journal daily and asking the effective questions with respect to change.

How does the word make you feel? Where do you feel it in your body?
Do you find change comfortable? If not, try to pinpoint why not?
What would have to shift in your thinking for you to feel like change is your friend?
Are you willing to risk change to pursue your passions and achieve your goals?
Are you able to adapt to change so that you are in alignment with your North Stars?

I’d love to hear your wins and breakthroughs as you take on this 7 day challenge with me…..
