Whether you have contemplated your unique purpose in life, tried to deepen or build on your spiritual development, or sought to enhance your own self awareness, chances are very good that at some point in your life that you have tried to further your personal development. The quest to better oneself seems to be innate in humans.
When obstacles appear between you and your personal development goals, take a moment to ask yourself where the problem really lies. Sometimes you can be your own worst enemy. Your mind can inflate potential problems and magnify obstacles out of a subconscious fear of failure. You should concentrate on the strict reality of your obstacles and not let your self-doubts make mountains out of molehills.
Be prepared to take risks, think outside of the box or put yourself outside your comfort zone on the road to personal development. This can be as silly as dressing up in a Halloween costume when you are 40 or as life changing as visiting a different country. Taking risks allows us to be stronger and face challenges head on.
When it comes to personal development be sure that you have a good background on the laws of nature. This is important because in order to fully appreciate everything around you, you need to understand it and respect it. In order to fully learn about yourself, you must know the laws that your body surrenders to.
When working on personal development, it is crucial to train yourself to have a high self esteem. Self esteem is an acquired behavior that you can change. Never forget that the power to improve your self esteem comes from within you. The only place to start when working on your self esteem, is to simply decide that you are going to do it. Make the decision that you are going to have high self esteem and accept the power within.
When trying to stay positive through your self help process, take the time to look at your surroundings and admire everything that is great about life. For example, the sun provides the entire world (and more) with energy, you should take simple things like this to provide you with positive reinforcement.
A great personal development tip is to try to get the most precision that you can possibly acquire. If you believe in luck, then you should know that the people with the most luck are those that have the most precise calculations. Precision is key to success and personal development.
Do not ignore what your body is telling you. Spirit and body are usually approached as two different aspects of a person, but your health definitely influences your mind. Make sure you get enough sleep, and eat healthy food. Do not ignore pain or signs of hunger or tiredness. You will be more efficient with a body in good shape.

A public servant, vested and dedicated.
You've worked diligently for years..
survived daily rush hours, long days and more
"other duties as assigned",tasks then most.
Projects appear more often with higher expectations.
You give the work all you have and all you can find.

different...The scenery is beautiful and engaging.

You snap back to reality, shake your head and wonder
"What's wrong with this picture"?
You're stuck…you get a check, benefits:
annual standard increase at least one every four years
and a cost of living bonus.until you max out your grade.
You realize the next phase is retirement, and even though
you've invested and saved you can't make that move until
age 70. Thoughts of being a "greeter" at Walmart seem
real just to maintain a somewhat similar lifestyle

The Magic Bank Account
Imagine that you had won the following *PRIZE* in a contest...
Each morning your bank would deposit $86,400 in your private account for your use...
However, this prize has Rules:
The set of Rules:
1. Everything that you didn't spend during each day would be taken away from you.
2. You may not simply transfer money into some other account.
3. You may only spend it.
4. Each morning upon awakening, the bank opens your account with another
$86,400 for that day.
5. The bank can end the game without warning; at any time, it can say, "Game Over!" It can close the account, and you will not receive a new one.
What would you personally do?
You would buy anything and everything you wanted. Right!
Not only for yourself, but for all the people you love and care for.
Even for people you don't know, because you couldn't possibly spend it all on yourself - Right!
You would try to spend every penny, and use it all, because you knew it would be replenished in the morning, right?
ACTUALLY, THIS GAME IS REAL!
Are you shocked??? Yes!!!
Each of us is already a winner of this *PRIZE*. We just can't seem to see it.
The PRIZE is “TIME"
1. Each morning we awaken to receive 86,400 seconds as a gift of Life.
2. And when we go to sleep at Night, any remaining time is Not credited to us.
3. What we haven't used up that Day is forever lost.
4. Yesterday is forever gone.
5. Each morning the account is refilled, but the bank (God) can dissolve your account at any time WITHOUT WARNING... YOU DIE……
SO, what will YOU do with your 86,400 seconds?
Those seconds are worth so much more than the same amount in dollars...
Think about it and remember to enjoy every second of your life, because time races by so much quicker than you think. So take care of yourself, be Happy, love deeply and enjoy life!
Here's wishing you a wonderful and beautiful day.
Start spending....Each Day is Amazing!
Received from a friend and sharing because every second counts!

"If you don't design your own life plan,chances are you'll fall into someone else's
plan. And guess what they have planned for you? Not much."
Any truth in that statement...That's a Jim Rolm quote; I heard it years
ago and it stuck...made me think, the more I thought about it, the more intrigued I
became. and found myself asking that question to myself alot. The very thought of
someone else designing my lifestyle pissed me off...Feel me?
Funny how some things you hear just stick and at some point you act on them...
Because...Doing You is the only thing that makes sense, in my opinion
Better than following status quo...go to school, get a job, work 50 years,retire and have to get
a job at Walmart to make ends meet. :-)
Bottom line...You're the boss of You, Right?!
Make smart moves, the world is waiting!

During back-to-school season and throughout the year, one of the most important purchases on any parent's shopping list should be a pair of proper fitting shoes for their child.
Here are tips from the American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA):
Children's Feet Change With Age. Shoe and sock sizes may change every few months as a child's feet grow.
Shoes That Don't Fit Properly Can Aggravate the Feet. Always measure a child's feet before buying shoes, and watch for signs of irritation.
Never Hand Down Footwear. Just because a shoe size fits one child comfortably doesn't mean it will fit another the same way. Also, sharing shoes can spread fungi like athlete's foot and nail fungus.
Examine the Heels. Children may wear through the heels of shoes quicker than outgrowing shoes themselves. Uneven heel wear can indicate a foot problem that should be checked by a podiatrist.
Take Your Child Shoe Shopping. Every shoe fits differently. Letting a kid have a say in the shoe buying process promotes healthy foot habits down the road.
Always Buy for the Larger Foot. Feet are seldom precisely the same size.
Buy Shoes That Do Not Need a “Break-In” Period. Shoes should be comfortable immediately. Also make sure to have your kid try on shoes with socks or tights, if that's how they'll be worn.

The Beach Boys are an American rock band from California. Cars were a key element of a number of the Beach Boys' early classics. "Little Deuce Coupe" is possibly the best and my all-time favorite. Known as a love song for cars, you can substitute your cars name for the words "little deuce coupe," and your auto will be purring in loving response.
Go ahead try it...
I think of these guys every year; remembering their annual performances at The Capital Fourth concert in Washington, D.C.on Independence Day for all most a decade in the eighties. Fun music - Enjoy!

“It has been said, most people die at age 25 and don’t get buried until they are 65. Make an effort to live your life to the fullest.” - Les Brown
Remembering Graduation Day makes me smile... It was full of excitement! The air was easy to breathe and the genie fulfilled my every wish. I laughed, dance and celebrated with family and friends and opened all the gifts...amazed at how thoughtful people were with their gift selection (especially the ones in the envelope).
Feeling grateful and motivated was the order of the day, in fact that feeling lasted a few days...weeks even. Then reality set in ...expectations were different; and I felt it.
Move out of my parents home, buy a car and live the singles life (urban style)! I wanted it to happen, quick...Realizing the obvious, I knew the entry-level job that I was in wasn't going to meet the bill. The work-study job was over and the designer things I purchased with my gift cards began to feel like a dumb thing to do. I immediately did the math...basic expenses plus recreation left me in deficit mode... additional income is what I wanted...needed - Now!
The fact that I graduated really meant my support system had changed drastically. I had decisions to make and soon...After-all, I dreamed about this time for many years and I wasn't about to give up my "urban lifestyle" dream...So the search was on!
Find a better job, work overtime were the first options I thought of and exactly what I did; however having my own business was always my dream and finally years later, I'm a business owner. I realized now that my journey with all of the twist and turns, ups & downs lead me to the same place I envisioned so many years ago. While I'm grateful for the experience I can't deny that I spent too much time in my comfort zone. Today,celebrating being a business owner with such delight makes me wonder what the hell was I thinking...living 25 years dead waiting to be buried.
I share this story to encourage you to follow your dream Now! Your age is less important than your desire! It's your time, embrace it! Do You... And the world will thank you for your time and service!
Check out this free webcast... You too can...Discover a lifestyle that gives you the flexibility and freedom to set your own schedule, create your own paycheck and be your own boss!
