Principles For Life #11

#11 >  I will always remain loyal to my God, my country, family and my friends.
The world we live in today is full of short term disposable material things. A major problem is that many people are also treating beliefs and relationships the same way.
If we don't like something or something someone else did, we are quick to judge and quick to dispose of that relationship.
If we want to do something that does not fit inside our spiritual beliefs, we may ignore those beliefs or look for some sort of loophole that we believe will allow us to go ahead and do what we want to do.
Some people will sacrifice their beliefs & personal relationships for things like temporary satisfaction, fortune and fame.
I can tell you from personal experiences, that the relationship you have with God and others, believing in the country you live in, plus doing what you can to make your country a better place for all who live in it, is priceless.
So when you are tempted to break your loyalty to someone, your country or with God, take a mental step back and dig deep to ask yourself.... Is it really worth it both short and long term?
And again... we reap what we sow. If you want others to be loyal to you (which most of do) you must also be loyal to others.

Principles For Life #10

#10 >  I will maintain respect for those in authority and demonstrate this respect at all times.
Since there are a few different definitions for the word respect, let me clarify by sharing the definition from Merriam - Webster, that I am referring to in this principle.
"a feeling or understanding that someone or something is important, serious, etc., and should be treated in an appropriate way"
I have had people tell me that this principle can be one of the hardest to follow, so let me share with you a tip that I use....
If you are having a hard time respecting a specific person in authority, respect the position that person holds.

Principles For Life #9

#9 >  I will maintain an attitude of open-mindedness toward another person's viewpoint while still holding fast to what I know to be true and honest.
Having a closed mind to new / different ideas or viewpoints, keeps doors closed on relationships or new opportunities for greater success in your life. The most successful people are always open to learning something new that will improve their personal or business life in some way.
They also attempt to understand why others have the views they have. The more you can understand why a person feels or believes the way they do about something, the better chance you have of creating or maintaining a good relationship with them.

Principles For Life #8

#8 >  I will always be as enthusiastic about the success of others as I am about my own.
If you are not excited and enthusiastic about others peoples successes, chances are you are either suffering from a lack of success in your life, low self esteem, or both.
Either way.. I strongly encourage you to start being more positive about the success of others, even if you have to force it at first.
In doing so, you should start noticing that you become even more enthusiastic about your own success. And again... since you reap what you sow, you will notice others being more excited about your successes as well.
Let's face it, we all like to have positive reactions from others for our wins in life every now and then. And whether we realize it or nor, we tend to gravitate towards others who are the most positive about and interested in our own activities. So by being more enthusiastic to others, you will find yourself developing new relationships as well as strengthening current ones.

Principles Of Life #7

#7 > I will always give so much time to the improvement of myself that I will have no time to criticize others.
One of the worst wastes of time is to spend it criticizing, putting down or judging others. Each second you spend thinking about or talking about other peoples faults, is precious time that you could be using to improve your own imperfections.
 If you waste time, you can't get it back. So take control over your negative thoughts of others & spend that time and energy on improving yourself. Don't waste it criticizing others.

Principles For Life #6

#6 > If I have nothing good to say about a person, I will say nothing.
Remember yesterday when we talked about looking for the good in all people? This especially applies to what we say about others.
Our words have both good and negative power that can greatly affect your life and the lives of others. So keep this in mind when you are about to talk bad about someone whether it's to their face, or behind their back.
Besides, most of the time you say something negative to another person, it only aggravates the situation or their attitude towards you. Very rarely is someone's actions or attitudes changed by others talking bad about them or to them.
So if you are not able to find something good with or about someone... just don't talk about them at all if you can help it. It serves no positive benefit and can make you look very bad to others.

3 Down 1 To Go! Are You Still In The Game?

Today is the first day of the last quarter of the year. So the BIG question is....
Do you have at least 3/4 of your 2013 goals completed?
If so... Congratulations! Either pat yourself on the back, or get someone to do it for you because you are one of the rare few who are on track.
If you are not on track, don't give up. Some of you have what it takes to not only get caught up, but also end the year ahead of your goals. And some of you may not be able to get totally caught up. But, you still have time to make great progress.
The key at this point to evaluate your past activities and the results you have received from them. Then look for activities, tools, systems, mentors etc. that can help you make adjustments. It is very important that you do this right away.
Will there be some discomfort and sacrifice on your part? Yes there will! But you must believe that achieving your goals are worth the price you will pay. And you must believe that you can and will pay that price... starting now!
