Have a Magnificent Day!

Have a Magnificent Day!

The Carpenter

posted by The MEGA Coach

from a dear friend:

An elderly carpenter was ready to retire.  He told his employer of his plans to leave the house-building business and live a more leisurely life with his wife enjoying his extended family.  He would miss the paycheck, but he needed to retire.  They could get by.

The contractor was sorry to see his good worker go and asked if he could build just one more house as a personal favor.  The carpenter said yes, but in time it was easy to see that his heart was not in his work.  He resorted to shoddy workmanship and used inferior materials.  It was an unfortunate way to end a dedicated career.

When the carpenter finished his work the employer came to inspect the house.  He handed the front-door key to the carpenter.  “This is your house,” he said, “my gift to you.”   The carpenter was shocked!  What a shame!  If he had only known he was building his own house, he would have done it all so differently.

So it is with us.  We build our lives, a day at a time, often putting less than our best into the building. 
Then with shock we realize we have to live in the house we have built. 
If we could do it over, we’d do it much differently.  But we cannot go back.

You are the carpenter.  Each day you hammer a nail, place a board, erect a wall. 
“Life is a do-it-yourself project,” someone has said. 
Your attitudes and the choices you make today, build the “house” you live in tomorrow.
Build wisely!

Remember…

Work like you don’t need the money.

Love like you’ve never been hurt.

Dance like nobody is watching

4)   To succeed in being healthy you must be totally responsible, committed and do what it takes to create true health in your body every day.

Grooming for Greatness

posted by The MEGA Coach

Grooming for greatness starts the day you are born.
Follow the natural principles for success in all areas of your life at an early age and you will have the best possible foundation strongly in place for the rest of your life.

Keys to a Successful Life:
Meditation
Health
Communication
Relationships
Career

Meditation:
One of the wisest practices for health, well being and spiritual growth is daily meditation.
It improves your mental clarity, creativity and dissolves negative patterns of addiction.
Meditation is good for every area of your life and brings harmony, balance and goodness to you.

Meditation practice can help to increase brain function, reduce the effects of aging on the brain and improve concentration and memory – Dr. Sara Lazar – Harvard Medical School.

A growing body of research suggests meditation can significantly enhance your immune system – U of Wisconsin and Harvard in 2003

Long-term meditators – improvements in sleep, blood pressure, calmer heartbeat, better circulation and younger biological and functional ages and they pay significantly less money to doctors – 87% lower heart disease cost.

Meditation allows you to focus on solutions through relaxation and peace of mind. It improves listening, learning and memory skills.

Meditators are superior learners and remember more of what they study.

Workplace Results:
Improved creativity, productivity and performance.
Greater job satisfaction and reduced turnover.

Being Healthy:
Health allows you to maximize your potential in all areas of your development.  The body and brain is approximately 70% water, so drink lots of water.  You need to drink half of your body weight in ozs. per day.  For example, if you weigh 160 lbs, divide by 2 = 80 oz’s or 10 – 8oz glasses of water a day.  Your body needs the right fuel – 70% green – veggies, salads, fruits and high water content nutrition daily.  If you want to live, eat foods that are alive! 

Your body  thrives on high water content and alkaline foods.  Eating nutritious foods and drinking lots of water will promote proper body weight.  A dehydrated body retains weight and eating processed foods/fast foods, sugar and soda clogs your digestive system and puts on weight. 8 out of 10 Americans are overweight or obese.

In addition to eating healthy and drinking lots of water on a daily basis, exercise is very important.  There are many good forms of exercise.  The most powerful exercise is rebounding – bouncing on a mini-trampoline.  According to NASA, it is the most effective exercise on the planet and astronauts rebound as part of their conditioning program.

Communication:
Being alive on this planet requires interacting with other people and being an excellent communicator is key to achieving successful relationships.  People have different styles of communicating.  Some are more visual and fast paced, others are a more auditory and a little slower and speak with more resonance and tone and others are more feeling oriented.  Although we use all of these three forms of communication, you have a primary communication strategy.  Practice all three of these styles of communication to be a flexible communicator.

Communication is:
7% words
48% tone
55% body language

Most people focus on the words which is the least accurate form of communication. 
Make sure that you focus on the tone and body language to determine the congruency of a person’s communication, including yours.

People have different love strategies.  There are five basic types:
Words and Affirmations
Quality Time
Acts of Service
Gifts
Physical Touch

It is important that you can express your love to another person in a way that they can understand and acknowledge.  Make sure you know which love language is primary for your spouse, partner, family member and friend.  Communication, acknowledgement and love languages are key to successful relationships.

These same communication skills will strongly effect your success in your career and it business.

“The quality of my life is directly related to the quality of my communication with myself and with others.”

Your Journey to Greatness

posted by The MEGA Coach

More incredible information from “The Science of Becoming Excellent,” by Wallace D. Wattles and Dr. Judith Powell:

“You will never become great until your own thoughts make you great, and therefore it is of the first importance that you should THINK.  You will never do great things in the external world until you think great things in the internal world; and you will never think great things until you think about truth.  To think great things you must be absolutely sincere; and to be sincere you must know that your intentions are right.  Insincere or false thinking is never great, regardless of how logical and brilliant it may be.

Think about the way you are doing things; about all your intentions, purposes, and practices until you know that they are right.  Anyone can accept the proposition in a superficial way, but to feel and realize a vital comprehension of it is another matter.  It is easy to think of going outside yourself to meet God, but it is not so easy to think going inside yourself to meet God.  You will find God is there, and in the scared center of your own soul you may meet Him face to face.

It is a tremendous thing, this fact that all you need is already within you; that you do not have to consider how to get the power to do what you want to do or to make yourself what you want to be.  You have only to consider how to use the power you already have in the right way.  And there is nothing to do but to begin.  Use your perception of truth today, live fully up to that and you will see more truth tomorrow.”

It is an inner journey to greatness.
It starts within you and it starts now.
