Very inspiring message, as usual, Goddess Jacqueline! Absolutlely with you on that one. What you believe becomes your self-fulfilling prophecy so be careful with what you choose to believe in. Rock on, Goddess!

Goddess, you are so right that mindset IS everything. You always do such a great job wrapping many mini lessons and nuggets together, your ability to use anchors and word pictures that all can relate to is powerful and is just one reason you are attracting all that you are.

Keep, Keeping on Goddess, “Dream, Believe, Become…”

Great post, Goddess Jacqueline, on how our thoughts become our reality!


Jacqueline Gates May 11, 2010 at 3:43 pm

Obviously we think alike, Sir Alan!

What a great concept! Think…therefor I am! I think I’ll also have to send you my recipe I received from my dear friend “Siren” of the “Gladiators” of the “Green Godess” smoothie!

Please do, sir Bill! Green Goddess is my favorite salad dressing and a smoothie of that name should be utterly heavenly too!

Lana dear ~ YOU are such an inspiration for living authentically and being totally clear on your message and vision. I’m so glad to have met you!

Powerful video, Jacqui! You’re a natural in front of the camera.

What we think … we become. With our Internet advantage we can hang out with millionaires and learn and grow from them. You have planted some good seeds in this video:)

I didn’t think I would enjoy watching your video at first, but you are VERY likeable, and very genuine, and I love your message! I will ponder it and internalize it and pass it on!


Jacqueline Gates May 17, 2010 at 9:59 am

Linda dear, I’m so glad you liked the video – but am soooo curious as to why you thought you wouldn’t in the beginning! Do share!!


Maggie Lancy May 19, 2010 at 6:58 pm

Your attitude will be the key to success.

Thanks for sharing

Hail Goddess, well met are we not. I bow to your illustrious magnificence. 😉

Honestly though, seven bucks an hour, is that what they pay Goddesses these days. My 18 year old daughter gets a little over 13 bucks an hour waiting tables. Perhaps being a Goddess and all you made a fortune on tips?

Still, all you say is true, you are what you think you are and you portray that image to others. Better to hold your head up on high and always look forward forgetting minor setbacks as you strive for your dream, for without dreams life is not what it could be.

Jacqi, I always get a charge visiting your Blog. While not liking Starbucks, you can bet your “booty” I’d buy one from you. Thanks for being the “Goddess” you are.

Goddess Jacqueline – I have always wondered where that came from – now what an amazing story to go along with the title! You are so right about people labeling themselves. We definitely need to start aspiring toward what we want to be not settle for where we may be in that particular moment! Thanks so much for this advice!


Melodie Kantner May 20, 2010 at 7:16 pm

Great video. What we think about, the words we use and and he way we label ourselves are so important. I remember a distributor in my downline many years ago was a publisher of a network marketing training magazine. The magazine was called “Small Potatoes.” I always thought that was a horrible name. Well, her magazine went out of business and she dropped out of her distributorship. Mindset and how we look at ourselves is very important.

Thanks for this awesome video.

Hello Goddess Jacqueline,
Thanks for sharing your beautiful and inspiring story. Labels are so powerful. People live up or down to the label or expectations they set for themselves.

You are lucky to have chosen the name The Goddess. I have always wanted a great name like that. What people know me as online is Migueliscool. I think it is too late for me to change it.

Goddess Jacqui,

We coffee lovers of Town Center Mall (especially my friend and me) will miss your smiling face and bubbly personality and hope to see you blogging from Starbucks sometime in the future! I’ve looked forward to seeing you on Thursdays and am glad that I will be able to keep up with you through your blog! I wish you all the success in the world!

Blessed be,


Jacqueline Gates October 13, 2010 at 9:36 am

Goddess Carol,
What a luscious delight to see you pop up on my blog!
Thank you for being such a pleasure to serve and talk to each time you visited Starbucks, and thank you especially for visiting me here.

And blessed be to you too.
(I knew we had a lot in common – nudge, nudge)

I would never call myself a goddess, because that takes away from Someone very near and dear to me. But I love the principle behind what you’ve done. What power there is in seeing myself as who I want to be! It all comes back to our self-talk, doesn’t it?

My best friend and I call one another Queen… even that felt strange and awkward at first. But only for a short time… and then I saw the power of it.

I love your energy and your honesty. I love your blog!
