'Inspirational messages to refresh the spirit and boost the emotional bank account'

Those who listen will learn

Advice comes in all shapes and sizes. For instance, someone gave the sage advice - 'If you dance with a grizzly bear, you had better let him lead.' No argument here.

Or this, found in a fortune cookie 'You are a poor, pathetic, gullible fool who seeks advice from bakery products.'

Conrad Hilton, hotelier extraordinaire, was asked on national television if he had one vital bit of advice for the viewers. 'Please,' he said, 'place the curtain on the inside of the bath tub when you shower.'

It's been accurately said that there is a lot of advice available for nothing, and most of it is worth about what we paid for it. But here is sound guidance, from an unknown author, worth taking to heart.

  • If someone hurts you, betrays you, or breaks your heart, forgive; for that person has helped you learn about trust and the importance of caution.
  • If someone loves you, love back unconditionally; that one is teaching you to love.
  • Make every day count. Appreciate every moment and take from those moments everything that you possibly can, for you may never be able to experience them again.
  • Talk to people that you have never talked to before, and actually listen.
  • Let yourself fall in love, break free, and set your sights high.
  • Hold your head up because you have every right to. Tell yourself you are a great individual and believe in yourself, for if you don't believe in yourself, it will be hard for others to believe in you.
  • You can make of your life anything you wish. Create your own life and then go out and live it with absolutely no regrets.
  • Most importantly, if you love others, tell them, for you never know what may come tomorrow.
  • And learn a lesson in life each day you live.

Even some free advice can occasionally be of profit and those who listen will learn.

Just recently I flew from Sydney to Melbourne for an early morning meeting followed by a series of additional meetings, all in the same office. It was one of those 'down and back in one day trips', so fortunately I only needed to carry my brief case so I could go direct to the . . . read the full story >>>

Someone Else

We are deeply saddened to learn this week of the death of one of our most valued supporters - Someone Else

Someone Else's passing creates a vacancy that will be difficult to fill. Someone Else has been with us for many years and for every one of those years, did far more than most.

It was common knowledge that Someone Else was among the most willing and generous givers in our global community. Whenever there was a financial need, everyone just assumed Someone Else would make up the difference.

Someone Else was a remarkable person, sometimes appearing almost angelic. Were the truth known, however, everybody expected too much of Someone Else.

Now Someone Else is gone! What we are going to do? Someone Else left a truly wonderful example to follow, but who is going to follow it? Who is going to do the things Someone Else did?

So when you are asked to help out a little, remember - we can't depend on Someone Else anymore.
