Shake It Off & Step Up

Shake it off and take a step up
author unknown

You can be buried alive by the dirt life throws at you
or
You can shake it off and step up
+++++++++++++++++++
What seemed like it would bury him, actually blessed him… All because of the manner in which he handled his adversity. If we face our problems and respond to them positively and refuse to give in to panic, bitterness, or self-pity… the adversities that come along in life usually have within them the potential to benefit and bless us!

Kindness

Please share your story about a time when you helped someone or where helped by another.

Whenever I meet someone who asks for money, I tried to give unselfishly. One day I had gone to pick up my friend at the O’hara Airport in Chicago and I went outside to smoke a cigarette waiting for his plane to come in. All of a sudden a young man had approached me stating that his ATM card was not working and he needed $$$ to catch a cab.

Well, I was not sure if I was taken for granted but said to him,” Here is the money you need and the only thing I ask is that you help someone else out without any doubt.” The guy looked at me with teary eyes (o.k. I know men don’t cry) and he could not believe I was willing to give him money to help him out.

I reminded him that to pay forward one day as I have done today. Why did I do that? I just remembered how those special guardian angels had come out of nowhere to help me when I was in dire straights and well it felt good to help one of GOD’s kids.

That gesture was probably the true highlight of my friend’s visit in which I was looking so forward to seeing him and enjoying his company. The visit was good, but truly the real joy was that act of kindness. By Mary S., Great Lake, IL

The Diet Paradox

Click here to listen to Free Audio – The Diet Paradox (eating this way helped me shed 50+ pounds in 2009-and I was never hungry) – Did you know that in 2010, 7 out of 10 Americans are expected to be overweight? When I read this I couldn’t believe it.

This means that whatever we’re all doing to help us get thin isn’t working… at all!

The positive news about this is that 3 out of 10 have the answer. They know some things that we all could learn.

What the thin have to say may surprise you. Losing weight isn’t about starvation diets, pills, supplements or counting calories.

It’s actually much easier.

Bestselling author and nutritionist David Wolfe says the answer to lasting weight loss has been right under our noses the whole time. Click here to listen to Free Audio You have nothing to lose but those extra pounds!

2010 Boom or Bust?

Do you know how to turn your resolutions into reality? I must admit that I don’t! I have failed so many times in the past at making my resolutions work that I honestly wasn’t ever going to make any again!

Seriously…I know that’s not very positive but it’s the truth, I was so discouraged by my repeated failures that I was ready to quit! And remember “I am Mr. POSITIVE!” so this quite frankly was very disturbing to me. After a while I calmed down and spent some time thinking, reading and researching resources to help me with this problem. I found the solution this past October.

I met “The Goals Guy” Gary Ryan Blair just 92 days ago when I entered his 100 Day Challenge program to finish 2009 strong and set up 2010 as my best year ever. Now I know that I can really make my resolutions stick this year! (Sadly, most people give up on their resolutions by the end of January)

I am committed and determined…this is my year!  I am writing this because I would like the same for you, your best year ever, whatever that means to you, I want you to be healthy, happy, prosperous so I thought I would share what I truly believe to be my best shot at making this all happen, if you’d like to learn more watch this short video, it makes sense to me. Let’s make 2010 our best year ever! Happy New Year!

Got Resolutions? Are you ready for success… I AM!

Here’s proof…

“Gary, your help in putting together my own personal strategic plan in the midst of all of the general chaos of my business has been invaluable. Your insight, which I’ve now outlined in my personal strategy to push for a promotion, and raise, which should exceed $3,500, more than justifies the small investment I’ve made out of pocket for your services. Quite honestly, I could not have done it without your help. Thank You!
