Be Careful What You Ask For!

The story that unfolds here is a classic tail of not being precise
when asking someone else to do something for you and
of not being entirely sure of the mindset of the person
you are asking

Enjoy

Hi
I opened the screen door yesterday and my cat got out and has been missing since then so I was wondering if you are not to busy you could make a poster for me. It has to be A4 and I will photocopy it and put it around my suburb this afternoon.

Dear Shannon,
That is shocking news. Luckily I was sitting down when I read your email and not half way up a ladder or tree. How are you holding up? I am surprised you managed to attend work at all what with thinking about Missy out there cold, frightened and alone… possibly lying on the side of the road, her back legs squashed by a vehicle, calling out “Shannon, where are you?”

Although I have two clients expecting completed work this afternoon, I will, of course, drop everything and do whatever it takes to facilitate the speedy return of Missy.
Regards, David.

How is your Relativity?

Whilst going through some papers the other day I underwent a relativity
check-up.

I was reminded of when someone asked Albert Einstein to define relativity.
He replied as follows, “When you are courting a nice girl an hour seems like
a second. When you sit on a red-hot cinder a second seems like an hour.
That’s relativity.”

The papers I was going through, include 2 letters that my late father sent to
his Sister Ida who was evacuated out of London during the Battle of Britain
in WW2.  In the letters he mentions taking my Mother to the cinema.

This is where my relativity check-up occurs! You see my dad was writing in
the present tense about dating my mum, seven years before I was born and
I am reading about it after they have both passed away! Read the rest of this entry

“Acres Of Diamonds”

Your diamonds are not in far distant mountains or in yonder seas;
They are in your own backyard, if you but dig for them.
RUSSELL H. CONWELL

Few motivational talks have influenced or inspired as many people as Russell Conwell’s
speech called Acres Of Diamonds. He delivered the speech more than 6,000 times

Old Inspiration in Our New Economy

By Rick Baker SEDONA, AZ
(May 25, 2009)

With the current economic recession, many people are presented with economic challenges. As you are surely aware, individuals and families in great numbers are dealing with financial loss, unemployment and financial hardship. Our business leaders and financial institutions may have failed us in their stewardship and responsibility to society and their care for the common everyday man or woman.

How long will this situation go on?

I am struck how the depression era classic Think and Grow Rich drives this Read the rest of this entry

Napoleon Hill describes 13 steps Towards Riches.

Step 2 Faith

Of all our emotions, faith is probably the strongest. It is a state of mind that most effects the subconscious. This is important when it comes to putting your thoughts into action in everyday life. If you set yourself a task but are lacking the faith in yourself to complete it then subconsciously you are accepting defeat as inevitable.
However, if you are able to convince yourself subconsciously that you can achieve what you set out to do then your efforts will be boosted and the results will reaffirm your self belief and strengthen your faith. You will not be able to fail, you will have let go of playing the Read the rest of this entry

In his classic work, Think and Grow Rich, Napoleon Hill describes 13 steps Towards Riches. Step 1 Desire During the recent Olympic Games, I don’t think any Gold Medals were won by people who turned up hoping for the best. The people who won the Gold Medals were different; they had a dominating dream of their life, to be the best! They had a Dream of Winning; a Desire to be the champion. They knew exactly what they wanted in life; that’s what makes people who are highly successful different from the rest. In Lewis Carrol’s classic story, Alice arrived at a crossroads and was unsure which road to take. She asked the Cheshire Cat which Read the rest of this entry
