The Spark Solution Success!

Saturday, June 01, 2013

Quite happily, I received my copy of Spark Solution ..... filled with many gold nuggets ......... In fact, I began reading, not hurriedly but really digesting and applying ..... as IF I was just beginning my spark journey. I not only read but applied every piece of information AND I broke through a stubborn plateau and dropped FIVE pounds! ........... Overall, in my 16 months with Sparks, I have gained so much more.

If you were given a 500 or 1000 piece puzzle ........ what would it mean to you?

Absolutely nothing until you take each piece , build a cornerstone and interlock the pieces as if each one was equally valuable in that it will take you to a happier and healthier place from where you began.

Chris Downey, founder of Sparks, has coined Sparks as having a "breakthrough umbrella philosophy to help in all areas of life." emoticon
How true this statement has proven to be.

As I began to put pieces of the puzzle together to form an actual picture, I found that Sparks is a Goldmine of information and the gateway to success in every area of life as stated.
One day I discovered the Spark Guys' Savings jar and in a short time have found so many ways to save time and money. One thing I found was that by saving money on things you have nothing to 'show for' ........... Like buying expensive coffee drinks for example ........ I began to save the money instead and invest into my *secret* savings ......... soon I found other little nuggets too .............. and in a short time ..... after saving 'here and there', and curbing spending, I have almost HALF of the cost of a new 42" flat screen TV that my hubby said he would like ........... BUT the beauty is .......... It will be an anniversary surprise for him, as he does not know what I'm doing. emoticon ............

The puzzle may start with just a couple of valuable pieces ..... like
drink at least 8 glasses of water a day and start w/ 10 minutes of exercise daily and build up ............. these are all pieces of a puzzle designed to bring a complete picture of fitness and health in all areas .............. I can't really say enough about the benefits of Sparks ............. But for one other thing ............

Along the way of this fun path ........ I have found some 'treasured and meaningful' friends ................ Sparks is a journey worth taking ........ and you never know from day to day what puzzle piece you will find to add to make your picture complete ......... emoticon

Sparks is reshaping my life ......... one piece at a time! emoticon
And for reading .......... I do appreciate and value spark friends! emoticon

    thanks for the good review you are so right the book is much more than eat this not that. going back and reading the book again rushed though it the first week of the challenge and week two was not a good week. so reading it with a new view point this time. thanks for a great review .

    Jan, thanks for sharing this. It is good to hear from someone I respect and trust that the book is really worth it as I have the other spark books and didn't want another one that just reiterates the same info. Sounds like it really made a difference for you....SO great...and congrats on the breakthrough and 5 pounds lost. Just another step forward on this great journey!!!

    GREAT BLOG! The puzzle pieces really do fit this perfectly. Without each one, it does not look the same. I have learned so much along this journey, met so many people that have inspired me and kept me accountable, and I just can't imagine my life without all the support that this great website and the people on it offer!
    It really is one of the best journeys I have ever been on and you are such an inspiration along this journey!
    Let's keep on walking this journey together!
    Thanks for the great words of wisdom!!!!
