IT COULDN’T BE DONE – BUT HE DID IT!

This is a wonderful optimistic Poem that I am always reminded of
when someone tells me that something ”Couldn’t be done”

Enjoy:

IT COULDN’T BE DONE
By
Edgar A Guest

Somebody said that it couldn’t be done,
But he with a chuckle replied
That “maybe it couldn’t,” but he would be one
Who wouldn’t say so till he’d tried.
So he buckled right in with the trace of a grin
On his face. If he worried he hid it.
He started to sing as he tackled the thing
That couldn’t be done, and he did it.

Somebody scoffed: “Oh, you’ll never do that;
At least no one ever has done it”;
But he took off his coat and he took off his hat,
And the first thing we knew he’d begun it.
With a lift of his chin and a bit of a grin,
Without any doubting or quiddit,
He started to sing as he tackled the thing
That couldn’t be done, and he did it.

There are thousands to tell you it cannot be done,
There are thousands to prophesy failure;
There are thousands to point out to you, one by one,
The dangers that wait to assail you.
But just buckle in with a bit of a grin,
Just take off your coat and go to it;
Just start to sing as you tackle the thing
That “cannot be done,” and you’ll do it.

 

Edgar Albert Guest was born in Birmingham England in 1881
He became a US citizen and died in Michigan 1959

Positive Thinking Pitfalls

‘Positive Thinking’ seem to be the buzzwords of the moment.

The Law of Attraction will make it all drop into your lap?

When you watch films like “The Secrets,” you are told, all you have to do is: use Positive Thinking and think about what you want and miraculously The Law of Attraction will make it all drop into your lap?

Unfortunately, most of us live in the real world where things are not quite that simple. Without any doubt, there can be an element of positive thinking bringing real world gains but it is only a small element.  To get what you want you have to not only think positively but you must also take positive action.

Here is a delightful animated video by Barbara Ehrenreich that perfectly explains the point I’m making.  This video should help you achieve your goals by using Positive Thinking and The Law Of Attraction.  Just watch and enjoy:

Hope you enjoyed Barbara’s message and you are now going to spend your time acting positively so that there is no room in your head for negative thoughts. Your new found positive energy combined with your positive thinking will bring many positive benefits to you and all you care for.

Pure Prosperity – Make Friends With Money

Today I have a gift for all my regular readers

One of my most inspiring mentors; Maggy Whitehouse, held a One Hour seminar recently

Introduction to the Spiritual Laws of Prosperity.

She has produced an MP3 of this and you can get your hands on it for free from her website or from the link above, no opt-in required.

Maggy is an inspiring author, TV and radio journalist, and a thoroughly good egg! As she describes herself on her blog:

“Prosperity mentor, author, journalist, workshop leader, dog walker, horse rider, drinker of champagne, eater of good chocolate, lover of roses, peonies, sweet peas, sunsets, Tuscany, beagles, Koi carp, cooking—and her husband, Lion.

I’ve survived an encounter with an eight foot barracuda off the Barrier Reef, being swept down a river in full flood and being trapped on a narrow bridge in front of an oncoming Chinese train. I’ve ridden on the back of a tiger, emigrated to Montana, USA for a whole 11 months, been made redundant and I’ve been both widowed and divorced.”

As you can see, Maggy has lived life to the full and her Prosperity Teachings reflect this.  She has currently just completed week 3 of a 6 week course which I find fascinating:

HeartWork – Transform your hearts desire into a successful, prosperous business

Set Your Goals! What Goals?

If you are interested in personal development or success coaching
(and who isn’t?) you have probably been given the following advice

How many times have you been told this:

“The Best way to get on in the world, is to set your Goals;
Work out the best route or plan to achieve them
Follow that plan… and reach YOUR GOAL”

This is usually accompanied by the advice

“Think Positively”

Useful as this advice undoubtedly is,
How can You set and then reach Your Goals
If you haven’t got a clue what your goals are???

No amount of “Positive Thinking” will teach you what your goals are

Luckily, Mike Hersee has produced an easy to follow list of questions
that you should ask yourself, to discover what Your Goals are.

Who Would’ve Thought?

 

 

 

 

In 1918 when the flu killed 40 million people, there was a Doctor who visited many farmers to see if he could help them combat the flu. Many of the farmers and their family had contracted it, and many died.

The doctor came upon one farmer, and to his surprise,  everyone in the household was very healthy.  When the doctor asked what the farmer was doing that was different, the wife replied that she had placed an unpeeled onion in a dish in the rooms of the home (probably only two rooms back then).  The doctor couldn’t believe it and asked if he could have one of the onions and place it under the microscope.  She gave him one, and when he did this, he did find the flu virus in the onion.  It obviously absorbed the bacteria, therefore, keeping the family healthy.
