1) One Minute Tip:

What questions to do you use to jump-start your day? What questions do you use to open doors, make you smile, and find solutions?
To a remarkable degree, the questions we ask determine the answers we find and create the life we live.
To achieve more, ask more and better questions.

3) Tips for your Happiness:

Life is Art by Jim Rohn

In my years teaching people to be successful, I have seen that basically people break their lives down in to two major parts: Wealth-building and the rest of their lives. Having done a lot of reflection on these two topics – wealth and life – I am coming to some new conclusions about how to perceive the two.

Until recently I thought that there was a significant difference in how we should tackle the two areas. In fact, I thought that the two topics should be addressed in almost opposite fashion.

You see, wealth-building is just math. While life — Life is art.

Think back with me to high school. Most of us were required to take math and most of us probably took art as well.

Now, think about your final exams in the two areas. Your math paper was graded on hard facts:

Ten times ten is always one-hundred
Thirty divided by three is always ten
Seven plus seven is always fourteen
Fifty minus twenty-five is always twenty-five

There is always just one answer in math. The answers are hard fact, set in stone. Math is a science. It is formulaic. You can know the outcome before it happens, every time.

But what about your final art project? Art is much more subjective. “Beauty,” they say, “is in the eye of the beholder.” There is no one right answer.

Think of the different styles of the famous artists:

Renoir. Monet. Picasso. Rockwell. Warhol.

Different people find different styles beautiful, and that is what makes art, art.

So how does this fit with Wealth-building and life? Wealth-building is like math:

If you add $1000 to your retirement account each month and gain seven percent interest over twenty years, you can know now how much you will have then.

It is math. If you buy a rental property for $200,000 now and it increases in value by three percent a year, you know exactly how much you will be able to sell it for in ten years.

The beauty of math is in the knowing. You can work the system, set it on auto-pilot and the math does the work for you, and you know the outcome.

But life? Life is art. And that is the beauty of life. You do not know how it is going to turn out.

Life, like art, is always changing. Different people provide different colors. When you make a mistake you can go back, erase it or even paint right over it. You can change the scenery.

Life, like art, is ever evolving, and what looks good to one person is of no interest to another. And that is what makes life beautiful.

Another lesson I think we can draw is that in life we should do our math, of course, but life isn’t made up of just wealth-building. Wealth-building should serve our ability to live our lives.

Jesus, the master teacher, said that our lives are not made up of the abundance of our possessions. He didn’t mean that possessions aren’t good, just that wealth isn’t what life is all about.

So let me ask you: Are you spending more time on your math or your art? Do your math. Everybody should do their very best at their wealth-building plan so they can take care of themselves and their families.

But life is about the art. What does your canvas look like? What kind of picture are you painting? What kind of pot are you creating? What kind of statue are you sculpting?

Take your time, make bold strokes, use brilliant colors, and make of your life the most beautiful masterpiece that you can.

In other words, do your math so you can focus on your art.

To Your Success,

4) Tips for your Health:

An Ounce of Prevention is Worth a Pound of Cure by James Groves

Last month I discussed allergies, stress, and functional hypothyroid as other causes of Chronic Fatigue. Here are more to add to that checklist.

Parasites can cause Chronic Fatigue. If you are experiencing diarrhea, bowel problems or itching, then discuss the possibility of parasites with your doctor. If you are looking for an alternative health treatment, then try an herbal program especially prepared for this problem.

Are you having problems with depression? If so, these symptoms can often be confused with Chronic Fatigue. If you are constantly unhappy, a good natural Vitamin B can help along with St. John’s Wort. But if you are currently taking Prozac or any other prescription for depression, do not use St. John’s Wort.

And finally, immune system damage may be the greatest cause of Chronic Fatigue. Catching frequent colds or flu’s can be signs of system damage. The best remedy is a comprehensive supplement program that is high in vitamins A and C.

5) Tips for your Prosperity:

A Special Kind of Courage by Brian Tracy

There are several different aspects of courage. Perhaps the most important is the courage to endure, to persist, to “hang in there” in the face of doubt, uncertainty and criticism from others.

Practice Patience in Adversity – This is called “courageous patience,” the willingness and the ability to “stay the course” in the face of uncertainty, doubt and often criticism from many quarters.

Stay the Course – In my experience, there is a critical time period between the launching of a new venture and the results that come from that venture. During this hiatus, this waiting period, many people lose their nerve. They cannot stand the suspense of not knowing, of possible failure. They break and run in battle, they quake and quit in business.

The True Leader – But the true leader is the person who can stand firm, who refuses to consider the possibility of failure. The turning points of many key moments in human history have been the resolution, or lack thereof, of one person.

Courageous patience is the acid test of leadership. To encourage others, to instill confidence in them, to help them to perform at their best requires first of all that you lead by example.

Allow Honest Mistakes – The second thing you can do to help alleviate the fears of failure and rejection in others is to encourage them to take calculated risks and allow honest mistakes.

Build People Up – Give the people who look up to you regular praise and approval. Celebrate good tries as well as success, large and small.

Create a psychological climate where people feel safe from censure, blame or criticism of any kind. Then do things that make people feel terrific about themselves.

Become Unstoppable – Courage comes from acting courageously on a day-to-day basis. Your personal development goal should be to practice the behaviors of a totally fearless person until you become, in your own mind, unstoppable.

Action Exercises – Here are two ways for you to develop courageous patience.

First, prepare yourself in advance for the inevitable disappointments and setbacks you will experience on the way to your goal. Don’t be surprised when they occur.

Second, resolve in advance that you will bounce rather than break and continually encourage others to think and act the same way.

Editor’s Notes:

Did You Ever Wonder?

Why the sun lightens our hair, but darkens our skin?
Why you never see the headline, “Psychic Wins Lottery”?
Why is “abbreviated” such a long word?
Why doctors call what they do “practice”?
Why is lemon juice made with artificial flavor, and dishwashing liquid made with real lemons?
Why is the man who invests all your money called a broker?
Why is the time of day with the slowest traffic called rush hour?
How come you never see mouse-flavored cat food?
Why didn’t Noah swat those two mosquitoes?
Do they sterilize the needle for lethal injections?
You know that indestructible black box that is used on airplanes?
Why don’t they make the whole plane out of that stuff?!
Do sheep shrink when it rains?
Why are they called apartments when they are all stuck together?
If con is the opposite of pro, is Congress the opposite of progress?
If flying is so safe, why do they call the airport the terminal?

I hope you enjoyed a chuckle with the above ponderings. Until next month’s edition, I wish you all the very best that life has to offer you, and that you are truly Loving your Life!
