Hi! It’s enthusiasm time again.
Let me know what you think via twitter at @JamieSmartCom, on my Facebook page, or on my blog here.
1. A quote I’m resonating with this week
I’m a big fan of Nassim Nicholas Taleb (author of such books as Antifragile, The Black Swan and Fooled By Randomness). Here’s a Taleb quote that’s resonating with me this week:
“Heroes are heroes because they are heroic in behaviour, not because they won or lost.”
2. A highlight of my year
Each year, a small group of clients and I go to a beautiful location with my dear friends, colleagues and mentors, Jan and Chip Chipman for the Clarity Life Transformation Retreat. This year, we’re returning to Santa Cruz de Tenerife in the Canary Islands, and I’m really looking forward to it. A member of our community, the wonderful Jo Munday made a beautiful video that captures some of the magic of it. You can watch the video and find out more here: https://www.jamiesmart.com/clarity-retreat/
By the way, we’ve only got one of the 12 places left. Have a look at the details and if you think you could be a good fit for it, hit reply to this email, change the subject line to “TENERIFE” and let me know a little bit about yourself. It’s starting in 10 days and I can hardly wait!
3. This week’s glimpse of the future
Ever-controversial, Tesla’s founder Elon Musk says he plans to roll out a million robot taxis in 2020. Whether he pulls it off or not, Musk has shown that many of his bolder claims end up coming true.
4. Clarity and physical health
When I spoke at the “Understanding Human Mind” conference in Prague a few weeks ago, I attended a session by John El-Mokadem and Karen Di Marco on how understanding the principles behind clarity can have a huge effect on physical health.
John is one of the coaches who’s been through our Thriving Coaches Blueprint programme, so I was particularly curious to listen to what he and Karen had to say.
I loved their session, so when John mentioned that he and Karen are running their Foundations of Health programme later this month, I said I’d be happy to share it with my community.
The Foundations of Health programme is specifically for people who have been struggling with a chronic health condition and are ready to make some changes.
John and Karen are offering our community the chance to come and experience their Foundations of Health program at a 20% discount when you book by May 9th – just use the code: fohmay2019js20 when you visit John’s site here: https://breakthroughthat.com/foh

5. This week’s 3 minute miracle
This is one of those strange tracks that isn’t that great the first time through, but it stays with you. When you finally give in and play it again, you may find it’s significantly improved in the intervening period. Worth playing loud, here’s Is it ‘cos I’m cool? by Mousse T and featuring Emma Lanford. Enjoy! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i-COn-I7pcE
That’s it for this week!

PS As I mentioned above, we’ve only got ONE place left… Of the 12 places on this year’s Clarity Life Transformation Retreat which I’m leading with my dear friends and mentors, Jan and Chip Chipman, 11 of the places have been taken.
The information about the retreat is here: https://www.jamiesmart.com/clarity-retreat/
The dates are 12-18 May, and it’s a significant financial investment (£5,495), but if you think you could be the right person for that last spot, hit reply to this email, change the subject line to TENERIFE and tell me a little bit about yourself. We can jump on a call and find out if it’s good fit for you and vice-versa.
