The Difference Project

Posted by terrepruitt on August 19, 2010

As a Nia teacher I am entitled to listen in on a monthly Nia Teacher Continuing Education call.   These teleconference calls are included in the cost of licensing.  So I am familiar with teleconference calls and that they have value.  I received an e-mail from “The Difference” and it was an invitation to listen in on a teleconference call.  The calls were happening at times that I was unavailable so I was unable to listen in on the live call.  But they recorded the calls and sent out an e-mail instructing us how to listen to the call.

This is a service.  Regardless of how you feel about teleconference calls, you have to know that people sign up for them and pay money to listen.  You have to know that all types of information is distributed this way.  Regardless of whether you would have paid for a call that has to do with ‘Re-energise & Fall In Love All Over Again’, you have to know that others would.  So The Difference provided a type of service.

I was not told that I could not share the information, but I don’t want to get involved in possibly disclosing something I shouldn’t have so I am not going to get into specifics.  I am certainly not going to spend my time contacting “The Difference” to see what I can disclose.  My purpose for this post is to continue the conversation about “The Difference”.  So many people are saying it is a scam and I am not ready to conclude that.  I have no proof that it is.  This is me sharing that they are doing “SOMETHING”. They offered a call that might not have value to all, but it does have value.

This phone call goes along with my original assessment that being involved as a paying collaborator on The Difference is a type of “self-improvement”/”self-help” thing.  In the call Jacqueline Bignell the Founder of The Difference™ interviewed two Australian Difference Makers.  One was Heather Yelland (her claim per her website: “Australia’s leading female personal development and mindset specialist”) and the other was Lisa Ippolito, a Neuro-Linguistic Programming Practitioner.

They brought up the main point of loving oneself will assist in the enabling of loving fully and of attracting love back.  It is not a new concept and more and more people are starting to talk about it.  I just read a post today that was about the very same thing.   The blog was saying that is what he saw in the movie  “Eat, Pray, Love”.  That Elizabeth Gilbert the author of the book came to that realization.  Funny how all of this connected in one day.  This type of thinking is what Jacqueline is trying to promote with her project The Difference.

The conference call that they did is just an example of what they are doing to help this “opening of your heart” type of thinking along.  Again, they are doing something, they are providing something of value.  I didn’t even become a collaborator and I still got something out of it.

    Creating awareness and getting people to really stop and think is the key to creating a difference. Thanks for the link to my post. Love and peace to you.

    • I would think that if “creating awareness” is a key to creating a difference one step to “awareness” would be of oneself. So this facet of making a difference was the energies and love — which starts with self love.

      I was amazed that so many things yestereday had to do with loving oneself. Maybe it was something I needed to do yesterday. 🙂

      Thank you for stopping by!

  3. Thanks Terre for participating in The Difference’s recent Tele-Interview and sharing your perspectives with others. I am the Founder and Executive Producer of The Difference and my intention with The Difference is to touch as many people around the world in a gentle and loving way and inspire people to connect with the difference that they are here to make in the world. I think as each one of us steps into the fullness and magnificence of who we are and deeply connects with the difference we are here to make we feel within us such a deep love that all we want to do is serve humanity and sharing our difference is one of the best ways to do that. This is what has happened for me in taking the courageous step to start The Difference. I feel divinely called to make my difference in the world and create a space and platform for people like you who have something beautiful to share with the world to be able to do that as part of a global group of difference makers making a film and tv show. It’s a beautiful, heartfelt journey to connect with people around the world who want to expand their circle of influence and share their difference with the world, coming from a space of love and contribution. I have found the best way to feel love and joy in my life is to forget myself and keep my focus on how I can contribute to others and serve people. Thanks for sharing your difference Terre and for the oppportunity for me to do the same. Much love, Jacqueline Bignell – Founder and Executive Producer of The Difference xxxoooxxx

    • Why Hello, Jacqueline!

      I was very happy to receive the invitation to the call. I think teleconferences are very useful for training and learning. I enjoyed the recording. I was really happy to have received it because as I said in my post I think of it as a thing of value and I wanted to share with others that The Difference was giving things of value.

      I really enjoyed the briefing that I attended. To me it was very empowering. In just the briefing, I believe you inspired and opened a few (if not all) hearts.

      I wish you well on your journey. It would be really nice to see more updates regarding the progress on your site.

      Thanks for stopping by.
