Razors edge It has often been said the line which separates winning from losing is as fine as a razors edge – and it is…. (I am talking about winning in a big way and in all areas of your life) One person “just about” starts a project, the other person starts it. One individual “almost” completes a task, the other does complete it. One person sees an opportunity, the other acts on it. One student “nearly” passes the exam, the other does pass it – and although the difference in their marks may be only one percentage point out of a hundred, it’s that one point that makes all the difference. In 1947, ARMED – the first race horse in the history of United States’ racing to win over one million dollars in prize money over the duration of his career – had earnings of $761,500. But the horse>>>
The Art of Intuitive Action About 10 years ago my daughter was about 2500 kilometers from Newcastle, and rang me one day sobbing because of an emotional trauma she was facing. She was about 20, and in a town known as Ayrlie Beach in Northern Queensland. I asked her what it was that she needed most in that moment, and she replied that she needed support, and my arms around her would be the best thing that she could hope for! Because I couldn’t do that in that exact moment, I asked her to describe her surroundings to me (I have absolutely no idea ‘why’, at the time), and said that if she hadn’t heard from me in about 30 minutes to ring me back. I asked her to stay exactly where she was. I had no idea how I was going to ring her back, by the way, as>>>
Can’t Please Everyone… a fable that’s been passed down An old fable that has been passed down for generations. It goes this way: An elderly man was traveling with a boy and a donkey. As they walked through a village, the man was leading the donkey and the boy was walking behind.The townspeople said the old man was a fool for not riding, so to please them he climbed up on the animal’s back. When they came to the next village, the people said the old man was cruel to let the child walk while he enjoyed the ride. So, to please them, he got off and set the boy on the animal’s back and continued on his way. In the third village, people accused the child of being lazy for making the old man walk, and the suggestion was made that they both ride. So the man climbed on>>>
COULDA! – SHOULDA!- WOULDA! READ SLOWLY — IT’S PROFOUND Too many people put off something that brings them joy just because they haven’t thought about it, don’t have it on their schedule, didn’t know it was coming or are too rigid to depart from their routine. I got to thinking one day about all those people on the Titanic who passed up dessert at dinner that fateful night in an effort to cut back. From then on, I’ve tried to be a little more flexible. How many women out there will eat at home because their husband didn’t suggest going out to dinner until after something had been thawed? Does the word ‘refrigeration’ mean nothing to you? How often have your kids dropped in to talk and sat in silence while you watched ‘Jeopardy’ on television? I cannot count the times I called my sister and said, ‘How>>>
What a GREAT time in LIFE The other day a young person asked me how I felt about being old. I was taken aback, for I do not think of myself as old. Upon seeing my reaction, she was immediately embarrassed, but I explained that it was an interesting question, and I would ponder it, and let her know. Old Age, I decided, is a gift. I am now, probably for the first time in my life, the person I have always wanted to be. Oh, not my body! I sometime despair over my body, the wrinkles, the baggy eyes, and the sagging butt. And often I am taken aback by that old person that lives in my mirror (who looks like my mother!), but I don’t agonize over those things for long. I would never trade my amazing friends, my wonderful life, my loving family for less gray>>>
My Reality Is Virtual! Someone once quipped, “A lot of my reality is virtual!” Whether or not you can say the same thing today living on Twitter and Facebook…, I find it is true that a lot of my reality is the way I perceive it. Let me explain what I mean with a true story. In the “Journal of the American Medical Association,” Dr. Paul Ruskin demonstrated how our perception of reality (not actually what is going on, but how we perceive it) determines how we feel about it. While teaching a class on the psychological aspects of aging, he read the following case to his students: The patient neither speaks nor comprehends the spoken word. Sometimes she babbles incoherently for hours on end. She is disoriented about person, place, and time. She does, however, respond to her name. I have worked with her for the past six months, but>>>
