Is it easier to fight the current and swim upstream rather than go with the flow of the river? When you say yes to the moment you go with the flow and accept the way life is. You tap into the power of the moment.
Feel how good it feels to say yes!
Feel how good it feels to be a yes to life!
Life always gives you exactly what is best for your growth every moment. All of the needed resources are available in this moment. Can you see it and take advantage of it?
Sometimes from your present vantage point you cannot see it clearly. It requires an open mind and spirit to see the truth of what is. It is the Power of Acknowledgement.
You can either use your perceptions to see the truth the way it is now, or color it with your preferences and see an illusion of the moment the way you want it to be.
The situation is the way it is for the moment. By accepting it as it is, you can see how to transform a negative into a positive. You open the moment to great possibilities and choices. You avoid unnecessary stress and hassle too.
Isn’t it interesting how sometimes you do not allow yourself to do something that you know you need or want to do? Isn’t it amazing that you can even resist yourself or what you know to be true?
Allow yourself to be the way you are.
Allow others to be the way they are.
Allow the world to be the way it is.
What is, is – Now you can choose how to respond.
“Your highest good and truest possibilities can never be taken from you.”

Do you notice how fast people are moving? They are walking on the street and driving their cars while talking on their phones and even texting. Computers, I pads, cell phones, emails, kindle……the beat goes on. When most people have coffee together or share a meal, they are often on their cell phones and computer at the same time. What is the true quality of your communication? Are you present and paying attention to people when you communicate?
Social media, facebook, twitter, post this, email that….it’s quite incredible. How did we make it before all of this technology? Question – Are you actually communicating better with all of this technology? Do you have a higher quality of life? Are you achieving more and better results? Or are you more distracted, multi-tasking and do you have a shorted attention span?
Being so busy and occupied with all of these devices does not necessarily improve the quality of your communication and relationships. Are you really connecting and spending quality time with the people in your life? Or are you too busy dealing with all this technology? How is the quality of your life and relationships? How much peace, contentment and harmony are you experiencing? How about your family and friends?
It is amazing to observe the insanity of how people are driving and behaving on the road. Have you noticed a change over the past few years? Do you see how many people are on their cell phones and texting instead of paying attention to their driving? It is so dangerous to drive and not be focused on your driving because you are busy on a cell phone. People seem more stressed and pressured and less courteous with shorter attention spans. Where is it that you are rushing to get to and will it matter how fast you get there if you hurt yourself and others on the way? Faster is not necessarily better.
Maybe it is the simple things that are truly most important. Being healthy, taking time to meditate, spending time in nature, preparing healthy meals and being with the people you care about do not require a lot of technology. Taking time to read and to learn new ideas…. improving yourself by being a better person in all areas. ….being thankful for all that you are and all that you have…….helping others.…connecting with your spiritual source……being quiet and peaceful.
The key to life is actually simple things, natural principles, one thing at a time. People come first – be kind, help one another, make a difference. The Golden Rule is very simple.
Your life and results improve when you slow down to the speed of life. How many opportunities are you missing because you are not really here? Use technology appropriately and watch your results, quality of life, communication and relationships soar.
Be a Smile Millionaire and enjoy the moment.

Hummingbirds know how to find the sweet juice. They zero right in on the most beautiful flowers full of sweetness and nectar.
Life offers you many choices. Choose wisely to find your sweet juice. People, opportunities and situations are not always what they appear to be. They can also change in an instant.
There is a wonderful fruit from Israel called the sabra fruit. The outside is quite prickly, but inside is a tasty, sweet fruit.
The rose is such a beautiful flower, but beware of its thorns. People can also have similar protective mechanisms.
One of the things that makes life so exciting is it changes constantly. Another is that life is not always what it seems. It keeps you on your toes because anything can happen.
Another interesting quality of a hummingbird is their high energy. They move at such a fast speed. They are the only bird that can fly backwards.
When you have high energy, you do not get bogged down in negative situations…..you transcend them! It is wise to be light like a hummingbird’s wings!
A smart strategy is to build a high vibration and strong energy. This requires faith, dedication and focused attention. It also requires being healthy and having a positive attitude. High energy transcends most challenges.
You deserve good things and it is fun to share them with others. Have compassion and kindness for others and an attitude of gratitude!
Make it a great day!

“If you shoot for the stars, even if you only hit the moon, you will be extremely successful!” Marshall Papier
Today marks the 25th anniversary of my Dad’s passing back in 1988. Dad died relatively young at the age of 56, but he was a fireball of energy and did more in one day than most people did in two weeks. He lived an incredible life full of drive, passion, enthusiasm and achieved the American Dream.
From poor beginnings and with a teacher’s education, Marshall Papier became a stock broker on Wall Street, an Investment Banker and entrepreneur. He raised millions of dollars for companies enabling others to achieve their dreams and make a difference. He traveled the world, and lived a magnificent lifestyle. My Dad was very generous and helped others, donated to schools and worthy causes and never forgot where he started from. He didn’t just give his money, he gave his time and experience to help others.
Most importantly, he met a wonderful woman at college who believed in him and they fell in love. Mom gave him the key ingredient he needed to achieve his tremendous success and achieve his dream. Her unconditional love was the foundation for his greatest triumphs to come. They were married for 34 years and had four sons. Although Dad grew up without the love of a family, he did his best to give us what he never had. My parents never missed a school meeting, sent us to great schools and summer camps and sacrificed the way loving parents do for the best of their family. Dad took us to the park and we flew kites and played ball. He took us fishing to beautiful lakes and we traveled to many places together. By his late 40’s, Dad had achieved every goal. He was a self made success story. He lived a very full and intense life.
What adds more interest to this story was that Marshall Papier was born during the Great Depression. His father ran out on his mom and brother when they were very young. His mom was unable to properly care for her boys so she sent them away to an orphanage when they were eight and ten years old. Marshall and his brother, Jay, grew up without the love and security of a caring family or a home. They went to school but also received a more powerful education from life. Marshall had to be tough to survive. He made extra money trapping muskrats and worked his way through Cortland State Teacher’s College as a waiter in the Catskills of NY.
Marshall proved that you don’t have to come from a wealthy family, a special background, have an Ivy League degree, connections or experience to succeed and achieve your dreams. It takes a burning desire, persistence, hard work and enthusiasm. No one can resist an enthusiastic person. The definition of enthusiasm is “inspired by God.” Anyone who knew my Dad can easily remember his passion and zest for life. He had fun and when faced with life challenges he gave it everything he had. His smile lit up the room. When you faced a problem that seemed insurmountable, Marshall Papier was the one you went to for help because he somehow found a solution that no one else could.
Looking at his limitations and challenges it would have been easy to settle for something less, but Marshall Papier had a dream and he was not going to stop until he achieved it. Thank God he did!
So the question is, what is your dream?
What is your burning desire?
Why is it so important?
Do you have a written plan?
Are you doing everything you can to achieve it?
Are you moving forward as much as possible right now?
Anything is possible, there is GOLD DUST in the air!
You can achieve your dream too!
