You can read our bios by clicking on the links below our pictures. What isn’t covered there is how it has felt as we have both taken this journey. While both of us have followed our passions on and off throughout our lives, it has now become the focal point of everything we do.
Sure we teach The Passion Test and the insights that our lives of study and experience have led us to. We love seeing people light up when they realize that they really CAN do things that matter to them. And the biggest awakening for us has been realizing that by supporting others in living their passions, we have been forced to live those principles ourselves, and thank goodness!
From our times presenting The Passion Test to members of the Enlightened Millionaire Program that we created with Mark Victor Victor Hansen and Robert Allen, to training 1,800+ Passion Test facilitators in more than 50 countries, this journey has been amazing. Today our lives are a daily miracle, and it’s just the result of consistently choosing in favor of our passions, day by day.
That’s why we tell our facilitators that the greatest benefit of helping others discover their passions is having no choice but to live the Passion Test principles yourself.
Passion Arises from the Heart
Passion arises from the heart and the purpose of The Passion Test process is to connect you with the things you love most. This includes the things you love doing, the people you love being around, the places where you love to spend time, the kinds of environments you love being in, and the things you love having. Meaning arises from living a life connected to what you love.
Thus, the real purpose of The Passion Test is to help you open your heart. A great sage once said:
“If you could only love enough, you would be the happiest and most powerful being in the world.”
When the Impossible Becomes Possible
As you probably know by now, we were once married and are no longer, yet we remain best friends and business partners. It took us five years to realize that as much as we love each other, that love is like the love of brother and sister, not of husband and wife. As we redefined our relationship, we both chose to keep our hearts open.
It has not been an easy path, yet it has been deeply rewarding. Today Chris has remarried to his beloved Doe (Doris), and Doe asked Janet to be the Godmother of their two beautiful daughters.
How can that be possible?
Only by recognizing that an open, loving heart is the most important element for a happy, fulfilled life.
Today we travel throughout the world, live in remarkable places, have the freedom to do what we want, when we want. And yet it is the rewards that come from living with an open heart that have been the greatest blessing in our lives.
It’s interesting that the ability to keep one’s heart open, depends on the ability to also live with an open mind. Our remarkable relationship has only been possible because we have been able to set aside traditional ideas. This is the reason that “Staying Open” is one of the 7 keys to living a passionate life (described in The Passion Test).
We are committed to the experience and expression of the unlimited potential of the heart and mind. We teach, and our daily practice is to discover, the unlimited potential of a life of unconditional love.
We invite you to step into our world. We’re pretty sure you’ll love it.
