You Are Only 1Choice Away From Changing Your Life

Hi Good day!
A little scary title right? :)

But that's what this post from Simpletruths is all about. Please read it :)

Dear Nilima,

In a perfect world, we hear something once, record it in our brain and never have to hear it again.

Well, I don't know where you're living, but my world is far from perfect. I occasionally have doubts, fears and disappointments in my life. During those times, I need shots of inspiration to reinforce, to encourage, and to motivate.

That's what my book Charging the Human Battery is all about...50 ways to motivate yourself! I think that one of the great challenges in life is to get inside our own heads, and truly understand what makes us tick. It's not easy, but this little book was written with that in mind.

Just remember...people are like sticks of dynamite; the power's on the inside but nothing happens until the fuse gets lit.

It is my hope that as you read there will be many a-ha moments to light your fuse, and keep it lit, through good times and bad.

But here's the key...keep it close and read it often. Because as my friend Zig Ziglar said, "People often tell me that motivation doesn't last, and I tell them bathing doesn't either, that's why I recommend it daily!"

As I mentioned, there are 50 short chapters, and each one shares an idea that has the potential to turn your switch from off to on. Today I'd like to share chapter two titled: You are Only One Choice Away from Changing Your Life.


An Excerpt from
Charging The Human Battery by Mac Anderson

Think about that. One choice, just one, can change your life forever. Simply put, your life today is what your choices have made it, but with new choices, you can change directions this very moment. For me, that idea alone is highly motivational because it offers tremendous hope, regardless of circumstances, for a better tomorrow.

Your life-changing choice may be to switch careers, to leave an abusive relationship, to go back to school, to stop drinking, to adopt a child, to start a business, to lose weight, to start a name a few. If you have the courage to do so, you could make any one of those choices, or others, today. And you would change your life.

Sometimes it's a different kind of choice. It can be to not quit, to not give up in the face of adversity. We've all been there.

Jack Canfield and Mark Victor Hansen received 77 rejections for their idea Chicken Soup for the Soul. They had to make a decision each time...should they throw in the towel and say enough is enough, or should they keep trying to pursue their dreams? You know the rest of the story. The 78th publisher said "Yes" and they went on to sell over 100 million books.

So never forget that you are only one choice away from changing your life. Do you have the courage to make it?

??? Good question isnt it?

Short Story: Focus on change

Hi Good day !
Bye ppl, I am out of town for 10days. Leaving you all with some great blog posts. Keep checking the blog for updates, I wont personally pester you to read my blog these few days ;)

This is an awesome picture-story-mail. Read on!

An old mail but worth reading

This is awesome. Let us learn from this.

Our lives are not determined by what happens to us but by how we react to what happens, Not by what life brings to us, but by the attitude we bring to life.

A positive attitude causes a chain reaction of positive thoughts, events, and outcomes.
It is a catalyst, a spark that creates extraordinary results.

Let's change to make a change!!!

When it rains, most birds head for shelter; the eagle is the only bird that, in order to avoid the rain, starts flying above the cloud. ...

"If you focus on results, you will never change.
If you focus on change, you will get results" C u after 10days! ;)

P.S. : Please note: This story was received in mail & to add it here, i had to do a lot of stuff like downloading images, resizing,... So its not my stuff. Hope the efforts are worth it. ;)
