Pat Council the Host of  Designing Your Life Today

“Doing Life with Power!”™ is all about embracing the true essence of who you really are.  It means never settling and not letting the world control your destiny.  It is about doing all you are capable doing, so that you astound yourself – to paraphrase Thomas Edison.   Of course, we never know what we are capable of until we dare to dream and decide to go for our magnificent dreams.

Growing up my goal was to graduate from high school, go to college, get a job, get and stay married, etc. (I did, achieve those goals.)  That is what I was taught.  Even though my family meant well, I was taught to survive and to think very basic.  There is nothing wrong with that if you believe it’s your destiny.  I made a few detours, first: I worked at McDonald’s, served in the US Military, and graduated from college.  Then the magic happened… ENTREPRENEURSHIP!

I earned my first 6 figures, then went on to build a 7 figure real estate company and managed a thriving network marketing team.  (Full disclosure, I only joined the network marketing company so I would be able to get my products when I needed them.)  Everything appeared to be going great, but then the economy tanked and my personal life took a nose dive.

I was faced with a lot of decisions to make:

  – The real estate market had crashed, so I had to find a way to continue bringing in money.

– I gained over 70 pounds.

– My father died and I got divorced. Shortly, after that my mother passed away, too.  I was an emotional wreck.  That’s when I knew I needed to get my life together.

– I needed my health, wealth and to build positive, empowering relationships with people.

–  The short version of the story is I got quiet.  I knew how to make money, but technical knowledge, alone was not getting it done.  I realized I needed something more.   That’s when I took the time to design my life and that meant going beyond a college degree and simply knowing the by the numbers way to make money.

I decided to pursue my true passions and monetizing them: entrepreneurship, coaching, speaking and writing.  I knew if I honored my true calling, I would be able to build and live a  magnificent life.

I had spent more than 14 years teaching others how to successfully achieve their goals. So, when I designed my life for success, my passion for inspiring and helping others was at the top of my list.

Personal experiences taught me that you can achieve any worthwhile goal with the right formula, clear achievement strategies and inspiration that activates passion, strength and wisdom.  This is why I am passionate about sharing the truth that will help others get the results they have been dreaming about for… well… who knows how long.  I am dedicated to sharing strategies, techniques, tools, coaching, and other necessary things to expand your mindset, increase your income, improve the quality of your life and, spark insight so you will build your magnificent dreamlife and business, too.

(More disclosure) I am still on my own achievement journey, but I have a pretty good achievement track record.  I am willing to share, but don’t let that stop you from sharing, also.  We are in this together, that is if you are interested in being a Power Achiever…. For example:  I lost 70 pounds, but gained back 15 during the pandemic.  Since, I am a Power Achiever, that weight is coming off.

We are all here to “do life with power!”™

because we are “built by design to win.”™
