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 . . .

It is tha artist's job to create sunshine when there isn't any. Romain Rolland

The sum of behavior is - to retain a man's own dignity without intruding upon that of others. Francis Bacon

God knows that belief is more important that what we believe. Elizabeth Bibesco

A carnival is not a revolution. Howard Barker

Nothing can be created out of nothing. Lucretius

Diplomacy is letting someone else have your way. Lester Pearson

    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 coming with me
    the future together we will see
    find out our dream
    more to life than ice cream
    and drinking all day long
    find peace in your life and be strong.

    Where is my patience in this busy world
    you are so slow has your life unfurled
    while mine is going along real great
    pity I do not know you feel I am arrogant

    Sky, trees, grass and plants
    so natural, stand tall, what a stance
    gives life energy, feel, heart and substance
    please open your eyes for just this instance.

    What makes you tick
    I see you each day and think
    what makes you so slick
    out of life's bowl we each day seem to drink

    Are you ready
    please hold steady
    do not get giddy
    or with life a bit fiddly

    find your true course
    comfortable within of course
    it will hold you in good stead
    from getting up until time for bed

    Have you not found your purpose
    what is it do you suppose
    to find strength and wisdom within
    to be comfortable in your own skin?

    Can we be strong
    be steady for how long
    keep control and be disciplined
    oh for a cup of tea and a biscuit.

    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.

    Have a successful attitude

    Success - be flexible, but be determined and persevere.

    If you want to achieve anything you need to be able to adapt to circumstances.

    You need to work hard. You need to be determined. You will need to persist with your actions.

    You will need to persevere, perhaps past what you would have done before.

    You want to be seen as an achiever, someone who starts something and carries it through to a conclusion, the finish.

    You want to be seen as someone who can be given responsibility and will put it off.

    You want to be someone who can be trusted and respected. For what they do and how they inspire others to excel too.

    You can be that person.

    Be flexible. Be yourself.

    Know that success does not grow on trees. Know that you have to work for it. But know that it can be yours.

    You have to be persistent. You have to stay on course. You need to know what you are going for.

    And do not quit.

    Get serious. Half-heartedness will not cut it. That will rarely do. Not if you really do want to get on.

    Know you can achieve. You can make your mark.

    Contribute to the success of your own life.

    Cast your doubts and fears aside - and start today!

    Hope you enjoyed it and found it beneficial. Martin

    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?

    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.

    -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.
