New Year Resolutions?

New Year Resolutions?

Have You made yours yet?  
Did You Break them already?

Its not important that you stick to some arbitrary wish list
that you made in a drunken haze at a New Year party

I will lose weight/ stop smoking/ drink less alcohol/
give more to charity/ do more good deeds  this year

I haven’t started my New Year Resolutions yet!

All right I’ve started working towards some of them…
but I haven’t really started properly yet.
Its not important that you stick to some arbitrary wish list
that you made in a drunken haze at a New Year party
when you are dehydrated and tired, probably with a hangover
you are not in the best condition to make life changing decisions
Sometime around mid January I think is about
the best time to give some serious thought as to
what your goals are for the year ahead

Sometime about now!

 So what is the best way to plan goals that you will stick to?
The answer to that question is simple
Choose something you will enjoy doing!
Choose something POSITIVE not negative
Make your 2013 goals something that you will enjoy
Rather than somewhat difficult and hard work
Instead of saying I will give up… or stop…
Say I am (a non smoker… a fit person…)
I am already a lighter, fitter person
I don’t smoke and I drink alcohol in moderation
I give to charity and do good deeds every day

New Year Resolutions?

Here is my thoughts for your New Year Resolutions

The path to success shakes off everyone who attempts it.

EXPECT SETBACKS!

The path to success shakes off everyone who attempts it.
Therefore, success is reserved only for those who climb back EVERY time.

Whatever your goals are this year I wish you every success in achieving them

And…

I will love to hear about your successes and the roadblocks you found on your way there

Have a Successful 2013

Networking is one of those skills that you just have to develop if you are going to succeed in our modern world.  Even if you don’t have to meet people in your daily work routine, you probably have to interact with someone over the phone or internet.

Here is a great article by John Heckers outlining some of the big mistakes often made when networking:

STOP STRUGGLING AND CREATING ‘IN REVERSE’

HOW TO STOP STRUGGLING AND
CREATING ‘IN REVERSE’
Guest Article By Dr. Robert Anthony

One of the mistaken certainties or misconceptions most people operate under is that
you get what you want in life by what you DO, or through the actions you take.

Most people believe that the DOING or action part is what makes things happen.

However …

This belief causes you to create in reverse.

Let me explain.

The reason we put a lot of emphasis on action is because we do not understand
the power of our thought.  If you analyse it, 90% of most people’s actions are spent
trying to compensate for inappropriate thought.

The Chinese philosopher Lao-Tsu said that “in the practice of the Way, every day
something is dropped.  Less and less do you need to force things until, finally,
you arrive at non-action.  When nothing is done, nothing is left undone.”

What he is talking about is “doing without doing.”

The problem is that most of us are preoccupied with doing  and unfortunately
most of our doing usually involves struggle.  In the western world we are
conditioned to be action-oriented, so we place a tremendous value on doing.
We are so busy doing that we do not realize that all this ”doingness” causes us
to create in a reverse fashion.

Most of our actions are out of fear, worry or doubt

… because we believe nothing will get done unless we DO something.
In other words, we are trying to FORCE our desire into manifestation through action.

If your decision to DO is dominant, then you will not focus on what you want to BE
in the present moment.  This causes you to miscreate because BEING is the first
and most important step in the creative process. ?

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

Meditation Works – But How Do You Do It?

Meditation is not an option these days

If you want to survive in the 21st Century
You  have no option    -   You have got to Meditate

If you spend just 1 minute Meditating every day

Maybe after you WAKE up - but before you GET up
Or when your Head is running too fast

Meditation will help you get your head into gear and you can take on the world

Meditation helps with many things: it can help you de-stress, become more self-aware,
and it can even reduce your sensation of pain.

A new study has found yet another benefit:
meditation helps you tune out distractions
even when
you are not mediating!

Here is a very good video to get you started

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

Picture of Maggy Whitehouse. Background is gre...

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

Please feel free to follow any of the links in this article, no opt-in required.

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.

Here is a short video of Mike explaining it to you

You can get the full story from Mike’s website

ONIONS – Wonder cure?

This is the contents of an email,
sent to me by Alicia Tucker, a well respected Therapist
her contact details are at the end of the article

 

I have never tried this and hopefully won’t get sick enough to try it…
but what an interesting thought and if possible amazing.
Let me know your stories on Onions.

ONIONS! 

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.

Are Antibiotics Causing Your Yeast Infections?

If you use antibiotics yeast infections may be in your future. It is a simple fact that the use of antibiotics is a major cause of yeast infections. It does not matter which antibiotic you use or why you use it. All antibiotics will produce conditions inside the body that are ideal for the growth of Candida yeast infections.

Antibiotics serve a very valuable purpose. Doctors are anxious to prescribe them for many illnesses and, when used appropriately, they can save lives. The purpose of antibiotics is to kill bacteria and they do it very well. In fact, they sometimes do it too well. By killing all bacteria they not only kill the dangerous bacteria but also the friendly helper bacteria that keep the body healthy. That is when the problems start.

Antibiotics are prescribed so often that some people have taken many courses over their lifetime. This frequent use causes a build-up of antibiotics in the body and makes it hard for the good bacteria to survive. The body also can become dependent upon antibiotics to kill infection.

Everyone’s body contains friendly bacteria that are needed by the body to defend against attacks by unfriendly bacteria and fungus. These friendly bacteria live naturally Read the rest of this entry

Money Was Never The Root To Evil!

Earlier this evening I joined a wonderful webinar
with the lovely Rev. Maggy Whitehouse

The topic was the Spiritual Laws of Prosperity,
One of the subjects Maggy can extol on

She dispelled many myths in the hour,
especially the one that says,
“The love of money is the route of all evil”

According to Maggy a better translation would be,
“Obsession with money is A route of all the crap in your life”

Here is a one page PDF of her translation

Maggy Love Of Money

As soon as I have the MP3 of the webinar from Maggy
hopefully in a few days time, that will also be on this blog

FAILURE! What are the benefits?

The first time I read that FAILURE was an essential part of any success story was
whilst reading my favourite book; Napoleon Hill’s classic work, Think and Grow Rich!

Napoleon uses the language of his time which can seam rather archaic in the 21st century

However, I was grateful to discover that one of the most successful writers of the
21st century also extols the virtue of making the most of failure
