“The more you seek security, the less of it you have.
But, the more you seek opportunity,
the more likely it is that you will achieve
the security that you desire.”

Brian Tracy

I was thinking about how so many people are desperately grasping at attempts to secure promises about tomorrow- hoping against hope that if they line it all up correctly, tomorrow will be a guaranteed success.
If only things could be in order today,
things would still be in order tomorrow, right?

If only it was that simple.

Security is not something we can access externally, as much as we want it to be.
It’s not in a job, or a relationship, or even in the creation of your master, detailed plan of how your life will be.
Where do we get it then?
If it’s not in being prepared, where does it come from?

Security comes from knowing yourself,
knowing your strengths and your abilities,
and believing that you have the resources, the capacity and the power to take care of yourself.
If you look for it anywhere outside of yourself, you are never going to find it.

Isn’t that great news …?
You don’t need to keep looking for it, because you already have it.
You ARE it.

(That’s a pretty big EO, or emotional orgasm, isn’t it?)

Emotional Orgasm.
There’s really no other way to say it.
Trust us, we’ve tried, but this is it.
This is the only way to describe what we’re talking about.
EO is Emotional Orgasm.
That’s right – Orgasm.
Shocking? Perhaps.
Try it on. Sit with it. Think about it. Feel it.
Look forward to it!

What is “it?”
It’s naming the “wow” moments in life. It is total fulfillment in communication.
It’s a conversation you don’t want to end with a person you gravitate towards.
It’s the amazing feeling you have when you walk away smiling after an unexpected exchange that made your day.
It can happen with someone you never thought it would.
You can have one partner… or many, and paying it forward is not only safe, it’s satisfying!

The pleasure you feel stays with you.
It can literally change your life, and the change in you can stimulate change in others.
When you feel good, and focus on being present and engaged, it changes your world.
You see the change in your relationships, your friendships, your marriage, your life.

If you know what an EO IS, you also know what it ISN’T.
You know when you’ve had one and unfortunately when you haven’t.
You know what it’s like to walk away from a conversation, situation or event and feel empty, or disconnected. You feel drained and disappointed. You feel let down and wishing that there was something more than this.
Good news…there is!

Here’s what it comes down to…

An EO comes from a place of connection, synergy and unity in conversation.
It arises out of appreciation and respect for the experience of another, and is more likely to occur when both parties are highly present and engaged.
An EO takes place in a moment of fulfillment when you feel heard and your experience validated.

Finally… YES! Someone gets me! They feel this way too! They understand! They’re really listening!

It culminates with waves of intense pleasure that stimulate one’s entire being, resulting from purposeful feedback and an exchange that is rewarding on so many levels! Through the arising and releasing of thoughts and feelings, both recipients feel a sense of gratitude for such highly intense communication. When you’ve had one, you look for more, and suddenly, opportunities are everywhere!

The validation that life can be this good can be overwhelming.
You’re not going through the motions. Or sleepwalking through life. You’re not faking it anymore.

Your outlook is renewed; your dreams restored; your cup runneth over.
This is living!
Welcome to… EO!

Your life can be as powerfully serene, enjoyable and as magical as you would like…or not.

EO’s are not something for special occasions or holidays.
They are not a finite resource that you must carefully ration out, or save them up for a rainy day!
EO’s can be plentiful in your daily life, and you can find them everywhere…starting right now!

People will sometimes say, “I’d love to have more EO’s, if only I had time, but you see I have to do the grocery shopping, shuttle the kids, clean the house, keep people clothed and fed and clean AND I have a job, so i’m not sure I can fit those EO things in too…sorry!”

Good news- you’re right.
You do have all of those things to do, and they do take up your time.
Bad news- you couldn’t be more wrong about EO’s!
The point is that you can have them throughout your day- even doing things that you don’t think would be EO producing or EO inducing!

So, now that you’re not off the hook anymore, what does this look like?

How can picking up flea/tick spray, going food shopping, picking up the kids from soccer or meeting a potential client for lunch all produce EO’s? It’s all about you and where you’re at and what you’re looking for.
Your life, and your EO’s, are on you.
You can have an unremarkable, benign, uneventful day that is full of EO’s.
Or not.
It’s up to you.

EOpportunities is all about giving you examples of what this can look like.
We’ll share our examples- and you’re going to quickly get what this looks like, and then you’re going to start sharing YOUR examples. EO isn’t a term, it’s a movement.
Every moment of life isn’t going to be spent sitting at the end of this beautiful dock, watching the sun rise and set.
Life is messy and filled with chaos and magic, serenity and stress, moments you exhale and moments you cringe. You’re going to show up and live it all.
You’re going to EO Your Life.
