Summer Of Yes Finale



It’s been incredible, this Summer Of Yes thing I committed to trying, way back when the snow was still melting.

Over the last season I did things I’d normally say no to (like trying new food, reading a new genre, camping in a tent); I did things I’d never tried before (like bleaching my hair, and taking an 11-hour road trip with a 5-year-old in the back seat).

And I said yes in a multitude of small ways, moments when I realized a yes from me would make someone feel good (like seeing a movie I didn’t want to see but knew my husband really did).

Yes from me netted me big YES back from the universe. This has easily been my best summer ever, filled with experiences both pleasant and powerful.

So what better way than to say thank you than with a party?

Today at 5pm ET on The Shaun Proulx Show on SiriusXM Canada Talks CH 167 we’re saying goodbye to Summer Of Yes with a Twitter party – and you can join me live on Twitter along with three incredible thought leaders who will join us on Twitter as my show broadcasts across Canada and the US. 

This is an incredible opportunity to connect with experts who can help you say yes more in your life – they all say YES, every season:

Mastin Kipp is known to millions around the globe as the man behind and his new book by the same name is a wonderful rough-around-the-edges sharing about growing into grace by a former coke addict who was chewed up and spat out by the Hollywood music machine.

Lisa Larter is a social media and business guru who has been a mentor and friend to me since we met at a conference in Dallas three summers ago. I know few people as en-pointe or as self-empowered; Lisa’s story and wisdom always inspires and genuinely assists others to actualize the life of their dreams.

Bryant McGill is another friend who’s got a few key things figured out, too. So much so that the coach and best-selling author‘s recent Facebook post on getting rid of toxic people garnered over 700,000 shares, overtaking Oprah’s good-bye to Maya Angelou. He’s a perfect example of a master at succeeding – seemingly without even trying – a trick we’d all like to pull more often.

Your invite with all the details is below. If you don’t already subscribe to SiriusXM, click here for a free two-week trial membership. (If you’re in the US use postal code A1A A1A on the trial membership form.)

Mastin, Lisa and Bryant will all be tweeting live with me and you and 5pm. Tune into Sirius XM Channel 167, and use #ThoughtRevolution on Twitter to follow along and join in the conversation.

I’ve also got something special organized for you: a chance to win a #ThoughtRevolution Prize Pack, with gifts for you from these three amazing guests:

To enter, simply sign up for my #ThoughtRevolution newsletter, which brings you regular encouragement to be, do, have anything you desire, and you’ll be automatically entered to win. You’ll also receive another free gift – from me – when you sign up: my exclusive conversation with Panache Desai on a topic we all have wrong: the ego. (If you already subscribe to #ThoughtRevolution, I have something special for you too. I recorded a private conversation with Mastin on the one BIG YES thing he said in his book Daily Love – Growing Into Grace that just blew me away. It’s a game changer and will be yours to enjoy via an upcoming issue of #ThoughtRevolution!)


See you on Twitter at 5pm ET using #ThoughtRevolution to connect with Mastin, Lisa, Bryant and me!




False Premises About Pursuing Your Dreams


I am most often asked: how did you quit a successful career to begin pursuing your dreams? People are drawn to wanting to knowing more about giving up what doesn’t feel right – even when that includes a six figure income, home ownership, security and identity – to go after your true desires.

Each of us loves the idea of being happier – a primary source of great unhappiness though is denying yourself the right to be pursuing your dreams. Changing the beliefs you have that are holding you back are key. Watch this video for my guidance and begin to change your limiting beliefs today. In it, I dissect some commonly held flawed premises about what happens when you pursue your dreams. The tool below will help you dismantle limiting beliefs you hold, one by one.

TOOL: A belief is just a thought you keep thinking. Write down one old habit of thought and then re-write it in a way that makes you feel better. For example: “I have to work hard for everything I have” could be an old thought that can also be accurately thought as, “I like the idea of things working out easily for me”. Begin repeating your new belief as often as you can to yourself until that becomes the new dominant thought you keep thinking on that subject. Then choose another old habit of thought about another subject and re-work it. Incremental shifts such as these always yield benefits that you’ll notice quickly. Signature-Shaun-2

Summer Of Yes



Greetings from my Summer of Yes.  After interviewing personal coach Paul Boynton at the top of the year about his book, Begin With Yes, that simple notion stuck with me – say yes more often – even though I’m a yes-based guy.  My radio show‘s programming has been dedicated #SummerOfYes, as we’ve brought guests on who are themselves saying big yeses, or who might help you and I say yes more to life.

I knew consciously saying yes more would equal more, but I couldn’t have expected the spirited magic I experienced last month, that resonates still as I write.

I’m a dog lover. If you follow me on Twitter you know that my copper American Cocker Spaniel Ella, rescued from a shelter when she was six months old, five years ago, has me wrapped around her wooly paw. Before Ella there was Jack, and there was also Chip, the German Shepard who used to chase cars, Patchie, and Chimo (I still have the picture of Chimo and I snuggling when I was five years old amongst some birthday gifts).
