I have just read an excellent book which shifted my success paradigm: The Go-Giver: A Little Story About a Powerful Business Idea. The book, by Bob Burg and John David Mann, focuses on the importance of giving. The Go-Giver is a concise book but the words it contains are powerful and I highly recommend it.

Ducks enjoying puddles
Love this photo of pretty ducks enjoying the wet weather. It appeared they were filtering puddle of water for worms or other food.
Success is controlling how you spend your time
Let’s spend our time working towards our goals and making the most of life.
So much happiness!
Congratulations Americans! There is so much happiness on my Facebook feed today 🙂
Community is very important and a positive and sharing local community makes a big difference. I’m very happy to write that my relationship with some of my immediate community has strengthened recently. Yes!
What an inspiration!
Back in February I met a friend for a cup of tea. During our conversation I introduced her to the 4 Hour Work Week, the concept of simplifying life and automating and outsourcing work in order to maximise the time spent living one’s dreams. I suggested to my friend that she buy the 4 Hour Work Week book by Tim Ferriss.
My friend loved the concepts in the book, including, hiring a virtual assistant.
Today I met my friend again to find out, only four months later, that she has quit her job and is now successfully living the 4 hour work week!
What an inspiration!
An abundance mentality
With an abundance mentality, the world holds an abundance of opportunities. These opportunities are there to be made and taken. Even times of disappointment often lead to the greatest opportunities.
Let’s seek and take those opportunities to lead a better, more positive and successful life!
It’s a wonderful sunny day
After 3 or 4 days of appreciated rain, today’s a lovely sunny day. The birds are singing and the sky is blue. Let’s make the most of today!
I have read many people’s inspirational accounts of their interactions with the late Robin Williams. From insisting venues employ homeless people to silently supporting charities to mixing with fans, every account was full of praise. He was a truly wonderful and generous man.
A significant part of being optimistic is praising people for their achievements. This includes praising others and self-praise. On a regular basis we should step back and look at what both others and ourselves have achieved and truly appreciate and recognise these achievements.
In the spirit of recognising achievements, I’m proud to write that I have now blogged positively every day for 2&1/2 months and this is my 80th blog post!
