What is on your Bucket List?

Saturday, June 15th, 2013

OK, so I just sat down and watched “Bucket List”, a great movie and a must watch if you ask me!

But, while watching it I started thinking.  Not that I need a bucket list, but living life to the fullest every single day, that is living! So I think it is time that we all make a promise to each other!

There is nothing in the world that we may want to do that we can’t.  We just have to find a way!

How to be happy…

Well, in 30 years I can’t say I have the end all, be all answer, but I can say I do have a tip that will help you enjoy life.  Want to know the tip? Here goes!

SMILE!

There is nothing that can hold you back.  Enjoying your life is as easy and making a positive out of whatever situation you may find yourself in!

What have you been in that most would think to be a negative situation that you have found a positive message from?

I am a Champion – Champion’s Creed

Saturday, November 19th, 2011

The “creed” in the video and below are both a bit different but both are powerful in words and I strongly suggest you watch the video above and read the words below.

The Champions Creed

I will conquer what has never been conquered,
Defeat will not be in my creed.
I will believe where all those before me have doubted.
I will always endeavor to uphold the prestige, honor and respect of my team.
I have trained my mind and now my body will follow.

Who am I? I am a champion!

I will acknowledge the fact that I am an elite warrior,
Who arrived at the cutting edge of battle by any means necessary.
I accept the fact that my team expects me to move further, faster and fight harder than our opponents,
Never shall I fail my brothers.
I will always keep myself mentally alert, physically strong and morally straight.
I will shoulder more than my share of the task, whatever it may be,
One hundred percent and more because I have surrendered me for we.

Who am I? I am a champion!

Gallantly will I show that I am a specially selected and well trained warrior.
My heart and my soul will be the fuel to carry my body when my limbs are too weary.
Although I may falter, I will never lose focus as long as there is hope in my mind and my heart is still beating.
I will never give in to the evil that is weakness and I will fight that evil with my dying breath.

Who am I? I am a champion!

Energetically will I meet my enemies, many will challenge me, but none will stop me from my goal.
I am not the strongest, I am not the fastest,
I am good because I have found something worth fighting for, and I will fight with all my might.
Surrender is not a champions word.
I will never leave a brother to fall at the hands of an enemy,
And under no circumstances will I surrender, for my ears are deaf to the word cant.

Who am I? I am a champion!

Readily will I display the discipline and strength required to fight on to my objective,
And I will complete my mission.
I will rise when I have fallen to rip the heart from my enemy and leave it beating on the ground.
My enemy will both fear and respect me.
If he does not, I will make him respect me with all that I have to give.

Who am I? I am a champion!

History will remember my name but he does not have to be kind,
For I have denied his criticisms and put in my own praise.
Nobody will define me, and nobody will tell me what I cant achieve.
None will say that I havent given all that I have to give and none will take my glory.
For those who have stood by me I will fight for, and for those who have deserted me I will crush.

Who am I? I am a champion!

Proper Perspective – A Daughter’s Letter Home

Mom and Dad goto Hawaii!

A Daughters Letter Home

Dear Mom and Dad:

It has now been three months since I left for college. I have been remiss in writing and I am very sorry for the thoughtlessness in not having written before. I will bring you up-to-date now, but before you read on, please sit down. You are not going to read any further unless you are sitting down. Okay?

Well, then, I am getting along pretty well now. The skull fracture and the concussion I got when I jumped out of the window of my dormitory when it caught fire shortly after my arrival are pretty well healed now. I only spent two weeks in the hospital, and now I can see almost normally and only get those sick headaches one a day.

Fortunately, an attendant at the gas station near the dorm witnessed the fire in the dormitory and my jump, and he was the one who called the Fire Department and the ambulance. He also visited me in the hospital and since I had nowhere to live because of the burnt-out dormitory, he was kind enough to invite me to share his apartment with him. It’s really a basement room, but it’s kind of cute. He is a very fine boy and we have fallen deeply in love and are planning to get married.

We haven’t set the exact date yet, but it will be before my pregnancy begins to show. Yes, Mother and Dad, I am pregnant. I know how much you are looking forward to being grandparents and I know you will welcome the baby and give it the same love and devotion and tender care you gave me when I was a child. The reason for the delay in our marriage is that my boyfriend has some minor infection that prevents us from passing the pre-marital blood test and I carelessly caught it from him. This will clear up with the penicillin injections I am now taking daily. I know you will welcome him into the family with open arms. He is kind and although not well educated, he is ambitious.

Although he is of a different race and religion than ours, I know your oft-expressed tolerance will not permit you to be bothered by the fact that his skin color is somewhat different from ours. I am sure that you will love him as I do. His family background is good too, for I am told that his father is an important engineer for the sanitation department he works for. Although they say he runs his office from his truck.

Now that I have brought you up-to-date, folks, I want to tell you that there was no dormitory fire, I did not have a concussion or a skull fracture, I was not in the hospital, I am not pregnant, I am not engaged, I do not have a venereal disease, and there is no boy in my life.

However, I am getting a “D” in history and an “F” in science and I wanted you to see those marks in the proper perspective.

Your loving daughter,

Now, Think about this letter every time you think you are going through a rough time.

Is it really “That” rough or is it just a minor discomfort?

Hope this changes your views on things a little bit! :)

3 Questions To Awaken The Real You!

3 Questions To Awaken The Real You” and reach your “Mental Fortunes“.

In our society, unfortunately, life holds just a little more than a spot in the 9-5 rat race for 40 years before retiring.  Too many of us will think about our life, looking back, and wish we had the opportunity to do something different.  Some of us may have been lucky enough to have the opportunities and didn’t take them.

Sound familiar yet?  (Don’t worry I’m in this field and I’m sure 95% of us are) (more…)

I Want To Die

This just sucks and there is nothing I can do to make it better except…

Stay Boosted!

I know the title and the caption underneath it isn’t the best thing to have on “Stay Boosted” but I wanted to get your attention.

I have been watching a video with Anthony Robbins about a man who was suicidal and the troubles he faced along with the thoughts of why he wanted to end his life and it made me think.

 

There has been a few times when I thought it might be easier if I just end it all and “clock out”. But in those moments I was being 100% Selfish and wasn’t thinking about anything or anybody but myself.

The problems we face whether they are financial or otherwise are nothing but building blocks for our character. We see so much negative and focus on so much negative on a day to day basis that what we go through gets escalated until we think we are facing the worst thing ever!  I used the term “Stay Boosted” at the top of the page very lightly because some of you may not understand exactly what I mean when I say Stay Boosted.

Nature – The Stress Reliever

We live in an age when stress seems to be around every corner, at every office.  The demands of modern life require us to be constantly “plugged in” through e-mail, cell phones, pagers, and Blackberry devices.  You might feel as if your senses are constantly being bombarded, both at work and at home.  As a result, stress might have led you to the breaking point.

But there is a great universal stress reliever—one that is close to everyone.  Nature offers bountiful opportunities for relieving stress.  It might seem old-fashioned to “commune with nature,” but it can be incredibly cathartic, decreasing your stress level immeasurably. (more…)

Rich Dad, Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki was a book that started a change across the world.  Being a Rich Dad is what everyone wants to be after reading that book.  So I have put together for everyone “10 Steps to Being a Rich Dad”

Having a rich-Dad mindset is about focusing on the financial aspects of abundant thinking, rather than just the psychological. This involves analyzing how you view certain pertinent financial questions, and swapping a scarcity or deficit thought for an abundant thought. (more…)
