A Warm Welcome To The 'Balance in Life' Electronic Newsletter

Hi, I'm Martin, and I'm very happy to be sharing a little more about life in this free monthly newsletter.

Life is very precious as we all know. And it is a noble aim to get the most out of it. Each month you will find new content here - not seen elsewhere first. Read and think and enjoy!

There will be a mixture of material to get our teeth into. To help move our lives along if we so wish. To think about life if that is what we want to do. Or to just ponder and wonder about life's rich tapestry, and what it has to offer us.


October 2009 Contents

So what do we have in store this month in this edition of 'Balance in Life'?

So let us get started on this months edition . . .


On a Lighter Note

Following on from the Lighter Note page on the website I thought I would provide just a few more quotes here each month.

Another chance to smile, to ponder, to think, to . . .

The sure way of knowing nothing about life is to try to make oneself useful Oscar Wilde

Women distrust men too much in general, and not enough in particular. Jean Commerson

Memories are the only possession which no one can take from us. Jean Paul

A good composer does not imitate, he steals. Igor Stravinsky

Eternal nothingness is OK if you're dressed for it. Woody Allen

The singing bird forgets its cage. Cardinal Josef Mindszenty

He who believes in nothing still needs a girl to believe in him. Eugen Rosenstock-Huessy

Nothing matters very much, and very few things matter at all. A J Balfour

    Prose Corner

    Each month I will look through my notebooks and find a little bit of prose 'n poetry. Often written in a few minutes, so please don't expect Wordsworth, but hopefully these entries will provide a little interlude in your day. A chance to think and ponder, to daydream or to visualize, to perhaps see things in a different light.

    Please see what you think and let me know if it is useful or not - highlights some valuable points but in a lighter vein . . .

    Happy reading.

    Are you a radical
    or just leading a practical life
    or are you responsible
    and tend to avoid any strife


    Rain or shine
    water or wine
    be productive or whine
    revolutionary or toe the line


    Are we under pressure
    are we under stress
    at times we'd like a rest
    and not feel life is such a test
    all we are trying to is do our best


    Simply the best
    as good as all the rest
    decided by competency and test
    by sharing yourself you are blessed


    The winner takes it all
    what is there for the rest
    provided you have given your all
    the time will come when you'll be best

    New Developments and Sister Websites


    You may have noticed some new red links appearing on some of the web pages.Clicking through these links will offer you opportunities to have a say (AND a page on the website). These subjects will be expanding in the coming months.

    This is your chance to have a real say and contribute your thoughts, your feelings for the benefit of all visitors. Get your thinking caps on and help another visitor along the way.

    The following gives the first of the 'red links' I have created for you. Enjoy playing YOUR part in assisting others in this way

    Feel free to offer your own thoughts and ideas - please just keep them focused on the subject of the page (there will be several more on different areas of topical interest in due course). Or see what others have shared and add comments to their input.

    I will keep you up to date with this exciting initiative as the months go by.

    Have your say and your presence on the Internet - YOUR very own web page. This is your chance.

    Don't be shy - we have been together some time now. Let me know what you would like to see on my websites and in this ezine. Contact me now.


    Sister websites

    I will continue to add focused content and expand the www.self-esteem-enhances-life.com website but I will also be building my other websites, too.

    My second website is www.successful-decision-making.com This is all about making decisions and to help you in making the right decisions for you.

    Only online this month (I have been busy) and www.everyday-wisdom-revealed.com has 80 (eighty) pages live for you to look at and browse through. The idea of the site is to have little snippets, an insight a page, easy to read, thought provoking but topical - something for everybody.

    Too many pages to highlight them all but check out the following, just to wet your appetite, and see what you think - and let me know ...

    My plan is for www.everyday-wisdom-revealed.com to have its own ezine - probably starting in December 2009. So be on the lookout for further announcements for that. Be ready to sign up for this free ezine.


    My aim with these three four websites is provide a one-stop information and inspiration center to help support and assist us all through life. And help us all get the most out of our lives.

    Main Article

    Each month there will be an article, with fresh content, that goes into a subject in a little more detail. Perhaps give a different stance. Perhaps provide food for thought. Perhaps . . .

    This month more of a thought provoking theme.

    Drop your anchors - what life foundations do you have?

    What gives you support each day? What keeps you going? Upon what do you base your life?

    Are these things you consider or are these not even on your radar?

    You life is such a busy whirl of activity that you have no time for such philosophical niceties.

    What are the foundations of your life and your existence? Do you have any?

    Do you have a value system? Do you have principles that you abide by? Are there things you will not do? Is there a line you will not cross?

    If so, good for you. Well done!

    You have looked at your life and found a need and filled it. You have found the basis of your life and each day is a little adventure. With ups and downs for sure, but a journey nonetheless.

    If that is the case you are really moving on with your life. All power to you.

    If this seems mystical, impossible or a pipe dream read on. Sure, there are not many people who are blissfully happy all the time. But generally, yes that is possible.

    And how - because they are firmly anchored in life. They understand life is on their side. And they are on life's side.

    It is a joint venture of exploration and wonderment. Of looking at life with friendly eyes. Of finding support and comfort from the trials and tribulations that life throws our way.

    This firm foundation is seated deep within. Within the spirit and soul of the person. It offers succor when required and helps to nurture us, day by day.

    This foundation can be felt within. We all have it. We may not recognize it as such, but it is there nonetheless.

    Our very own private sanctuary. Where we are us and safe. We are one and can feel as one.

    Troubles and strife do not exist there. The waters are tranquil. Contentment and satisfaction rule. Joy and understanding emanate.

    We are safe and sound within our own being. Nothing can touch us there.

    And from the knowing we can draw strength. We can draw energy. We can feel whole and at one with life itself.

    Our anchor here allows us to be consistent in life. To know life and be known by life.

    Look and feel within and taste those waters. Taste the tranquility and stillness.

    All at the core of your being.

    And this knowledge you carry with you each and every day. In whatever you do, wherever you are.

    For it is you. The real you. The you only you can know.

    Not the external you that changes according to circumstance and the winds of life. No. The you, the energy we call life. That which we can experience for ourselves if we really want to look and find.

    And that is one of life's tasks for us, if we choose to take up the challenge. To find ourselves within and feel the energy of life.

    And to live our life knowing who we really are. What makes us tick. Why we take breath each and every day.

    And this knowledge and experience can give us meaning and purpose.

    Not just to savor and experience but from that experience to contribute and give of ourselves. Uniquely as only we can.

    Contribute to the greater good. Touch others in subtle and important ways. Share a little of our essence. Make a real contribution.

    Make our small mark upon the huge book of life. And be content and happy in so doing.

    - - - - - -
    Make every effort to look within for yourself and find your life within. Explore. Experience that for yourself. Find the real you inside.

    Hope you enjoyed it and found it beneficial. Martin

    News Flash - Write a book in 14 days - find out how here

    Here's *your* chance to become a 'best selling' author!

    A man I respect a great deal has just released the most incredible, step-by-step tool I have ever seen on the subject of writing your own book... and getting it done and published while you're still *young enough* to enjoy it!

    Steve Manning, a master writer and journalist, has authored what I believe will totally revolutionize the publishing world.

    The name of his manual?

    'How to Write a Book on Anything in 14 Days or Less... Guaranteed!

    Frankly I was shocked when I saw it!

    This master writer holds your hand through the entire writing and publishing process!

    He has sold literally hundreds of thousands of books and he's arguably the most prolific magazine writer on the continent as well. And when it comes to writing a book,he lays everything out for you.

    He leaves nothing to chance... no stone unturned as he takes you step-by-step through the process of:

    -Get an agent in just 36 hours

    -Create a book proposal no publisher can resist

    -Develop "technologies" no one else on the planet has that make your book better than anything on the market

    -Unleash the power of your own creativity so you write better than you ever thought possible

    -The fastest method of researching on the planet--it has nothing to do with the Internet. One journalist in southern Ontario stated this single strategy was so effective, it was scary!

    -S.N.A.P. editing--this single strategy caused a former president of a national editor's association to declare that we had to get this information out to anyone and everyone who was even thinking of writing a book!

    -The simple technique that will create any mood imaginable in just seconds. Professional writers struggle for years to learn how to do this. You'll be able to do this in just seconds.

    -How to ensure that your book is a best-seller

    -How to make sure the reader is involved in every page

    -Step by step instructions for copyright registration. Even the forms are included!

    -How to turn your book into a client magnet so it becomes the source of an unending stream of prospective customers.

    -How to know exactly when you'll be finished writing your book no matter how much, or how little you want to write each day.

    -How to blue-print your book in just hours so you instantly know exactly what will be in your book and where it will be. You will never write even one sentence that isn't used in your book.

    -And there's still so much more I can't even begin to write about it here!

    Steve is the kind of person who raises his prices frequently because of demand.... but I practically begged him to keep the price down long enough to let me send you this email so you can check it out.

    If you have the least bit of interest in writing your own, highly profitable book and all the prestige and accomplishment that goes with being a 'best selling' author... you owe it to yourself to get more FREE information.
