Be Careful What You Set Your Heart On

Be careful what you set your heart on …. for it surely will be yours.
This is one of my all time favourite quotations and it relates directly to the Law of Attraction (I’m a great believer in the Law of Attraction).  It contains a promise, almost a guarantee, but that promise is qualified with a warning, urging us to ‘Be careful‘.
Let me explain how I interpret the message that’s contained within this quotation.

The promise part,  ‘For it surely will be yours‘, is simple.  It tells you that whatever you truly set your heart on will be yours.  No if’s.  No …

Personal Development ~ It’s An Attitude Thing!

I discovered the philosophy of Personal Development at the age of 18.  I was working at a Ford Main Dealer in an administrative role when I was given the opportunity to train in sales.
I attended a residential Sales Training Course at Ford’s Training Centre in the UK and it was while I was on that course that I started to realise how much I loved learning new skills and how important it was for me to perform at my best.  Of course, this may well have been fueled by the fact that, once I started working in sales, I also …

It’s worth noting that the statistics in the video are now a little ‘old’ and completely underestimate the true scale as reflected in the current figures.  Social Media is growing exponentially, right now, so get …

The Cookie Thief ~ A lesson in Assumptions

A woman was waiting at an airport one night,
With several long hours before her flight.
She hunted for a book in the airport shop,
Bought a bag of cookies and found a place to drop.
She was engrossed in her book but happened to see,
That the man beside her, as bold as could be,
Grabbed a cookie or two from the bag between,
Which she tried to ignore to avoid a scene.
She munched cookies and watched the clock,
As this gutsy cookie thief diminished her stock.
She was getting more irritated as the minutes ticked by,
Thinking “If I wasn’t so nice I’d blacken his eye”.
With each cookie …

A Donkeys Tale – A Lesson in Persistence

One day a farmer’s donkey fell down into a well. The animal cried piteously for hours as the farmer tried to figure out what to do.
Finally, he decided the animal was old, and the well needed to be covered up anyway; it just wasn’t worth it to retrieve the donkey.
He invited all his neighbors to come over and help him. They all grabbed a shovel and began to shovel dirt into the well.
At first, the donkey realized what was happening and cried horribly. Then he quieted down.
A few shovel loads later, the farmer finally looked down the well. He was …
