Pass on the “Seeds of Greatness”

Pass on the “Seeds of Greatness”

I wanted to pass on this absolute gem of what I call universal wisdom. It was written by Mr. Denis Waitley the best-selling author, speaker, poet and lyricist. I read it on his ezine, and it is a keeper!

Timing and Change

Timing and Change

Unfortunately sometimes a change that we are working on will not produce the desired result that we want simply because of the timing. It does not mean that we should not work on the desired change because the timing might be wrong. In fact we might need to fail at the wrong time, so we can learn how to succeed at the right time.

1,016 Steps To Go

~ 1,016 Steps To Go ~

“The Way” in My Life

#2

This writing is a continuation of my article “Reappearance of the Do” that I posted on 06/12/08.

Although I am proud of what I have accomplished in the very short time that I have been practicing Taekwon-Do, I have barely “scratched the surface” of learning “The Way”. I have been practicing this martial art for months not years or decades. My original exposure to Taekwon-Do twenty years earlier was even shorter, but it made a lasting impact on me. I am now fortunate to be learning “The Way”.

My long term goal in Taekwon-do is to learn, practice, live, and excel at “The Way” for twenty years. And if a week of my Taekwon-Do practice is a step, I have taken 24 steps, and I have 1,016 steps to go. The only possible way for me to achieve this huge goal is to learn, practice, and live, “The Way” one step at a time.

Win-Win-Win Situation

06/09/08

A Win-Win-Win Situation

If I didn’t dislike long titles, I would have called this piece “A Win-Win-Win Situation or how I lost forty pounds by quitting cigarettes.” I know it sounds improbably – but it did happen – so hear me out. I am not out to sell anything. I am not an expert in tobacco addiction or weight loss. It has taken me a long time to learn what works for me in being smoke-free and weight healthier. Maybe this article will spark you into trying things that will work for you.

I tried many times to quit smoking cigarettes over the years, but my attempts wouldn’t last. I believe a major reason for my success was with a paradigm shift (how I envisioned quitting smoking would be) that I had before the last and final time I quit smoking.

My unsuccessful paradigm with quitting smoking was. (This is going to be a win-LoseLose situation. I will be healthy by quitting smoking, but it is going to be hard, it is going to be stressful, I’m going to gain weight, etc., etc.)

My successful paradigm with quitting smoking was. (This is going to be a WinWinWin situation. Not only will I be healthy by quitting smoking , but I will lose weight, I will be stronger, I will feel better, etc., etc.)

So my thinking was – smoke-free, loose weight, stronger, and feel better? It was a no-brainer, a done deal for me. So I started a little exercising before I stopped smoking. I started increasing my exercising the day after I quit smoking. I very gradually kept increasing my exercising little by little, week by week, and then I started calorie counting every day. I lost forty pounds in under a half year. I am not saying this was a “walk in the park’, but I don’t feel I sacrificed anything. It took work, but enjoyed the process, and I do feel so much better on many levels. This worked and is working for me. What will work for you?

* Consult your health care provider before engaging in

exercise and or a change of diet.

How do you create a BLOG?

How do you create a BLOG?

Step by step, day by day, week by week,

I am not being flip. I surf through the blogs at wordpress.com, and I see a lot of blogs that are stuck in the beginning stages. I also see a lot of blogs that look the same – little or no changes from the template.

My point is – it is not that hard to develop your own blog. Just by experimenting with the different buttons in the different sections of your blog, fifteen to thirty minutes at a time, once or twice a day – you will have a blog that you can be proud of in a short time. Then you can concentrate on your content. Just by doing a little at a time, I have made a lot of progress, and so can you!

Don’t give up on that Blog.
