One Minute Tip:

How to learn from your mistakes:

The next time you make a mistake, in order to make sure you learn something positive from the experience, ask yourself these seven questions (from Rob Woollard of
1. What can I learn from this mistake without beating myself up?
2. How can I handle this situation next time to ensure a more positive outcome?
3. Does dwelling on this mistake any longer help my business, family, mental or physical health?
4. Can I reframe this setback as an opportunity and move toward a positive change?
5. In retrospect, can I see that past mistakes actually were blessings?
6. Is this mistake part of my learning curve moving me toward greater success?
7. Are there people I admire who have made major mistakes but still achieved great success?

Power Quotes:


Don’t flatter yourself that friendship authorizes you to say disagreeable things to your intimates. The nearer you come into relation with a person, the more necessary do tact and courtesy become.
- Oliver Wendell Holmes


Of all our human resources, the most precious is the desire to improve


Greed is a bottomless pit which exhausts the person in an endless effort to satisfy the need without ever reaching satisfaction.
- Erich Fromm

Tips for your Happiness:

7 Surprising Keys to Happiness

Have you ever had one of those days where you just wish you were in a better mood? Perhaps you tried to shift your state of mind to something better but struggled to achieve it.

Sometimes we get stuck in our own ‘stinking thinking’ and forget how easy it is to feel happier, so here are seven simple ways to lift your mood that many people have found useful and some of them may surprise you!

1. Go for a walk.
Most folk know that going for a short daily walk is one of the best forms of exercise. If you can, go into a natural environment with flowers, trees and birds. What will you notice first? The different shades of greenery, the fresh smell of country air, the bird sounds, or the sunlight shining through the tree foliage.

2. Listen to some quality music.
Music creates magical effects. It can shift the listeners state within moments. Why not dig out that album you haven’t listened to in ages or why not tune in your radio to something you’ve never listened to before.

3. Think of others less fortunate.
The fact that you are reading this article suggests that you are probably much better off than many, many people on this planet!

What if you were to imagine being in space looking down on the amazing beautiful earth, noticing all the oceans and lands with the clouds above… And then thinking about the fact that there are many human beings that are starving, homeless and in lots of pain… Allow your compassion for them to grow.

4. Read something radical!
How many different types of magazines can you get these days?! Have you ever waltzed into a big newsagents and just browsed through the magazine racks? It’s incredible.

Why not buy a magazine you wouldn’t normally buy. You never know you may discover something wonderful!

5. Laughing at laughter.
Have you ever had the experience when you just laugh for no good reason? Isn’t it great! Laughter is one of the best ways to lift your spirits. Can’t think of anything funny?

Try grinning at yourself insanely in the mirror and notice how difficult it becomes to control your giggle muscles!

6. Simple breathing meditation.
A great exercise that you can do anywhere is a simple breathing meditation. No need to dress in orange robes. Simply find yourself in a comfortable sitting position with your back straight.

Now close your eyes and become aware of the flow of air into and out of your nostrils. That’s it! Do this for 10/15 minutes and you’ll find yourself pleasantly surprised how you feel afterward.

7. Doodling just for fun!
Remember when you were young and you used to doodle with crayons for hours. Kids love drawing silly little pictures, why not adults?

So get some pens, pencils, crayons or whatever you have and just draw – doodle away until your state of mind shifts.

You might agree that these are all pretty simple and that’s what’s so good about them.

Making changes, mundane or profoundly life-changing, are easily and quickly achieved by putting into action simple ideas, methods, tools and techniques.

Tips for your Health:

Breath test detects cause of ulcers

If indigestion is your problem, a new study may spell relief at the doctor’s office: A simple breath test that identifies the bacterium Helicobacter pylori may be all you need to get to the bottom of that bloated feeling medically known as dyspepsia.

That’s the word from a new study appearing recently in the British Medical Journal. Scottish researchers say that the breath test for H. pylori (the same organism found to cause ulcers) is as effective as the more invasive internal exam for detecting H. pylori.

Celebrate Everything

Perhaps you’ve heard the story of the optimistic little boy who, when confronted with a room full of horse manure, dove right in, exclaiming, “With all this manure, there’s got to be a pony in here somewhere!” Although I don’t think I want to hug him right now, I think the little fellow’s got it right.

No matter how big a pile of “manure” life dumps in your path, looking for the pony is the best response. Even if there is no pony, digging in with enthusiasm is better for us than being burdened with reluctance and resentment. Between you and me, there usually is a pony, but we miss it because we’re not looking for it.

When you opened your eyes this morning, you were already breathing. If not, I don’t think you should be reading this.

If you went on to check the obituaries and didn’t find your name, you’re apparently alive. That’s a miracle. Celebrate it.

Celebration is made up of two elements — gratitude and joy. Remember, joy is the most natural state for us humor beings. If you want more joy in your life, begin each moment with gratitude.

Gratitude is the essence of celebration. It doesn’t have to be noisy or raucous. A quiet “thank you” to a special person in your life can be an effective form of celebration.

If you have not been celebrating everything, try this exercise:

Exercise #10:

Get in the habit of listening for the sounds of laughter constantly going on all around you. I call these sounds the Symphony of Laughter.

Whenever you are out in a public place, such as the mall, an airport, or a theater lobby, you can hear laughter, because that’s the way we communicate when we have no imposed agenda. Whether it’s a giggle right beside you or a guffaw from across the room, the sound will lift your spirits and bring a smile to your face.

Soon one more laugh will be heard—yours.

There you have my Ten Commandments of Fun, each a practical strategy for bringing forth your humor nature in all its strength and glory. Notice that all of them are focused on you, rather than the things going on around you. That’s because, if you’re aiming to focus on fun, you must look to yourself first. As selfish as that may sound, it’s simply the way it is.

The roots of fun do not lie in the circumstances or things that surround you. They are deeply embedded within your being.

If you catch yourself thinking thoughts like, “I could have more fun, if I had more money” or “My job would be more fun if the boss would get off my back,” you’re focusing in the wrong direction.

Fun starts inside you and works its way out. It doesn’t happen the other way.

The best way to remember how fun works is to “take” my Ha Ha Ha Prescription. Whereas most doctors say, “Open wide and say AH,” I say, “Open wide and say HA HA HA.”

The first HA is Humor Attitude. This is where fun begins.

Attitude is a 100 percent inside job. Our attitude may be the only thing in life over which we have total control. If we cultivate an attitude of willingness to be light and playful, to appreciate all the absurdities swirling around us all the time and to laugh whenever we can, we have done our part.

The next step happens automatically, without any effort

from us. Our Humor Attitude creates a Humor Atmosphere around us. That is the second HA. It just “oozes” from us. Others may not know what to call it, but they know it’s there. They can feel it. They are drawn into it. It’s irresistible. They want to be near us and hear what we have to say. They are eager to share their positive thoughts with us. They want to “play” with us.

Once this is accomplished, what follows is a no-brainer.

The very next thing we do will be fun. That’s the last HA—a Humor Action. Humor Action does not require anyone to be witty or funny.

There is no pressure to perform or to make anything happen. It is merely a trustworthy natural outcome.

Because we have the tendency to mistakenly think that success produces fun instead of the other way around, we often find ourselves trying to apply the HA HA HA Prescription backwards.

We attempt to say or do something funny (Humor Action) hoping that our “performance” will stimulate laughter (Humor Atmosphere) and thus lighten the mood of everyone present (Humor Attitude).

It doesn’t work that way. Even when it seems to, it’s only a transient phenomenon, hardly a dependable basis for lasting success.

Sustained excellence comes only from having fun first, and that begins, not ends, with attitude.

With the HA HA HA Prescription and the Ten Commandments of Fun under our belts, we are now ready to consider how to build the Fun Factor back into our lives. Let’s begin by looking at the most basic social structure we encounter in life— our family.

Tips for your Prosperity:

Supervisor’s corner:
Rejection affects thought processes

Sometimes you notice that one of your people is left out of conversations, eats lunch alone, or doesn’t seem to have a friend in the department. Is that any of your business? Consider this:

Psychologists at Case Western Reserve University say interpersonal rejection can dramatically reduce the capacity for intelligent thought. It is so apparent to researchers that they wonder if reasoning skills evolved to help us navigate the complexities of social life rather than help us solve technical problems.

After taking a personality test in one study, one group of subjects was told they would die alone. The other group was told to expect lasting friendships. Subjects who thought they would have a solitary life were significantly impaired in performing complex reasoning tasks. They were also slower and less accurate in their responses to a timed IQ test.

The doctors’ report, published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, said the effect was similar to the cognitive impairment caused by head injuries. In a related study, rejected people took greater risks and made more unhealthy choices rather than taking better care of themselves.

Study leaders conclude that excluded individuals are so busy trying to suppress emotional distress that they are unable to engage in controlled thinking.

If you can arrange to include a socially rejected employee in more socialized activities, you could be rewarded with one who thinks better and works better.
