One Minute Tip:

Appreciate Life

Appreciate life, people, everything around you. Learn as much as you can from every person you meet. Do not turn people away just because you do not agree with them.

You never know, the very people you turn away may be the very people that come to your life to being more abundance to you.

Power Quotes:

“Don’t wait until you feel like taking a positive action. Take the action and then you will feel like doing it.”
–Zig Ziglar

“Mountaintops inspire leaders but valleys mature them.”
— J. Philip Everson

“You will never stub your toe by standing still, but the faster you go, the more chance you have of getting somewhere!”
— Charles Kettering

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:

To Lose Weight, Eat Slowly

It takes our brain about 20 minutes to realize that we are full.

When you eat too fast, there is not enough time for the “full” feeling to register, so you’d end up eating more.

Eating slowly helps you feel more full and consume less food.

To Lose Weight, Dump Your Fattening Daily Routines

Do you have any food-related daily routines that are making you fat?

You know, those food “rituals” that you do on auto-pilot, without even thinking about them?

For example, grabbing a cup of coffee as soon as you get to work?

Reaching for the donut inside the box on the office counter?

Eating popcorn while watching TV?

Do you do anything along those lines? Do you have your own, completely unique food-related habits that are not doing you any good?

Recognize them, and dump them! Even if you dump just one, you’ll still get skinnier than you were before!

TIRED OF FEELING TIRED? We know that life can get you down. Too much stress. Too much pressure. But it does NOT have to be that way!!

Tips for your Prosperity:

Find some Like Minded People, to share your self help journey to prosperity

….Find five people that were in a bookstore this week, and make them your close friends.

……Surround yourself with people who dream bigger than you do.

…….When you get negative people out of your life, negative “things” stop happening to you.



…..Bills are simply invoices for blessings you’ve already received.

……HEALTH, LOVE, HAPPINESS and MONEY are infinite….

……True Prosperity only comes to those who seek it.

….You would be hard pressed to find someone more prosperous than a three-year-old with a big box of crayons and a coloring book.,

Quotes and excerpts by Randy Gage

Goal setting and Planning:

Vision brings your prosperity to you much sooner.

Prosperity is manifested in the mind first. You can stumble across random blessings, but true and boundless prosperity comes as a result of envisioning it first.

(Note from Editor: Cut out or create pictures, symbols, samples, of the things you dream about having in your life of abundance. Stick them onto a display board. Randy calls his the “Dream Board”, and suggests you hang it where you can see it every day.

I use a “Discovery Journal” that I put the photos of things that trigger feeling of wellbeing and pleasure in me. Pictures of luxury cruise liners, new cars, shoes, jewelry, house improvement items, new hairstyles, gardening ideas, ANYTHING that I can “look forward to” in the future.

This also helps me to discover what my wish list IS or will be, nowdays…. I have such an abundance in my life already, that the usual “survival level” stuff I had on my lists for years was surpassed long ago, so what do I plan for now? Mostly just fun stuff and contributions.)

Affirmations, goal cards, and other devices that enhance and strengthen your vision have the same result. You actually program your subconscious mind with the desired goal. And once something is programmed in your subconscious, it HAS to happen.

Visualize your successful, abundant life by Starring in your own movie!

Write the script for the story of your best, ideal day. The more that you can really SEE your abundance, the more likely you are to attract it.

So for example, let’s suppose your vision is to be the number one sales producer for the organization you work with. You write that movie.

So you might pick the day of the annual convention, where you will receive your award. Starting with waking up in the morning, you write out your day.

So you might talk about the smell of coffee downstairs that you wake up to. Feel the breeze coming in the window, and hearing the dog bark with happiness when you come downstairs. You would describe the breakfast you ate, and the conversation you had with your partner.

You might mention the red Lambourghini with the leather seats that you drive to the hotel where the conference is being held, and the tumultuous ovation you receive, when you go on stage to get your award. The key here is that you involve ALL OF YOUR SENSES, and paint the picture as vividly as you can.

Stuff that would be minutiae in a real Hollywood script is very important to you. So don’t hold back on any details. If you are having homemade strawberry jam with the cream cheese on your cinnamon raisin bagel for breakfast – write it down!

You want a compelling and thorough journaling of your perfect day; the day you want to manifest. You want to see it, hear it, taste it, smell it, tough it and FEEL it. It is only when you experience prosperity in your mind and heart first, that you manifest it on the physical plane.

Keep this script someplace like your planner, briefcase, or purse, so you have it handy every day. Read a few paragraphs at every opportunity. When you get stressed out during your day and feeling overwhelmed, read your script.


…..Only acknowledge your limitations for the purpose of overcoming them.

……Be the number one investor in your dream.

…..If you don’t invest in you, why should anyone else.

……Spend more on your personal development than you do at the coffee (or donut) shop.

Signs For The Stupid. By Bill Engvall

Stupid people should have to wear signs that just say, “I’m Stupid”. That way you wouldn’t rely on them, would you? You wouldn’t ask them anything. It would be like, “Excuse me…oops, never mind. I didn’t see your sign.”

It’s like before my wife and I moved. Our house was full of boxes and there was a U-Haul truck in our driveway. My friend comes over and says “Hey, you moving?” “Nope. We just pack our stuff up once or twice a week to see how many boxes it takes. Here’s your sign.”

A couple of months ago I went fishing with a buddy of mine, we pulled his boat into the dock, I lifted up this big ‘ol stringer of bass and this idiot on the dock goes, “Hey, y’all catch all them fish?” “Nope – Talked ’em into giving up. Here’s your sign.”

I was watching one of those animal shows on the Discovery Channel. There was a guy inventing a shark bite suit. And there’s only one way to test it. “Alright Jimmy, you got that shark suit on, it looks good… They want you to jump into this pool of sharks, and you tell us if it hurts when they bite you.” “Well, all right, but hold my sign. I don’t wanna lose it.”

Last time I had a flat tire, I pulled my truck into one of those side-of-the- road gas stations. The attendant walks out, looks at my truck, looks at me, and I SWEAR he said, “Tire go flat?” I couldn’t resist. said, “Nope. I was driving around and those other three just swelled right up on me. Here’s your sign.”

We were trying to sell our car about a year ago. A guy came over to the house and drove the car around for about 45 minutes. We get back to the house, he gets out of the car, reaches down and grabs the exhaust pipe, then says, “Darn that’s hot!” See? If he’d been wearing his sign, I could have stopped him.

I learned to drive an 18 wheeler in my days of adventure. Wouldn’t ya know I misjudged the height of a bridge. The truck got stuck and I couldn’t get it out no matter how I tried. I radioed in for help and eventually a local cop shows up to take the report. He went through his basic questioning, ok… no problem. I thought sure he was clear of needing a sign… until he asked, “So… is your truck stuck?” I couldn’t help myself! I looked at him, looked back at the rig and then back to him and said “no I’m delivering’ a bridge… here’s your sign.”
