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 appreciate, to . . .

One does what one is: one becomes what one does Robert Musil

Who gives a trifle meanly is meaner than the trifle. Johann Kaspar Lavater

Better not to have lived than to leave no traces of your existence. Napoleon Bonaparte

One can always be kind to people about whom one cares nothing. Oscar Wilde

Hope is a good breakfast, but it is a bad supper. Francis Bacon

One is never deceived, one deceives oneself. Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Poetry is at bottom a criticism of life. Matthew Arnold

Praise undeserved is scandal in disguise. Alexander Pope

Taste is made of a host of distastes. Paul Valery

A second thought is never an odd thought. Flann O'brien

Every man seeks for truth; but God only knows who has found it. Earl of Chesterfield

Prose 'n Poetry 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.

Is your life a classic
or is it full of traffic
from head to head your mind does go
you wish for peace - to be in the flow

How well can you write
will you get the words just right
do you write like you sing
out of tune - oh what a din

There was a young (wo)man who lacked confidence
(s)he was sometimes distraught - or was it just by chance
(s)he found true strength (insight, understanding, talents) within
now (s)he exhibits a real presence
and with life each day a full resonance
which in many ways is a clear and full recompense

For what I did I should have said sorry
it is no excuse that I was in such a hurry
I will try to be more thoughtful next time around
please forgive me - please do not take the higher ground
and make me feel bad for what I have done
though I would understand if for now you just left me alone

We need to learn and grow
we learn that we reap that which we sow
we get away with what we allow
we ought to our friends say more than hello

I do not know where to start
in and out of things I do dart
I should practise and get the horse before the cart
lest I appear like an over the hill old f*&t

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 a different theme.

Set your mind on something . . .

Set your mind on something and see it happen.

Has that ever worked for you? I am sure that it has. But often we do put our mind to work but we are unaware that this is what we are doing.

We want to accomplish something. It really means something to us.

We know we need to maintain our focus. We need to plan ahead. What do we need to do to help accomplish what we have set out to do?

We need to be determined to overcome adversity and hurdles. We need focus not to be distracted by other issues - which may appear important but may be less so in the grand order of things.

We need to develop priorities. We need to see what we really need and those things that are tantalizing but not real, real but not, or should not, be on our radar at this time.

We can develop a step by step plan. And then action that one step at a time. One point at a time is achievable and makes a bigger project seem possible and not a far off dream.

We should review and reflect as we go along. Are we still focussed where we need to be? Are we still applying our talents, skills, effort and energies in a good and constructive manner?

- - - - - - - - - - - - -

But with all this thought and planning are we leaving an essential ingredient out? Are we forgetting a magical little part of life?

We can try this or that but at the end of the day perhaps we need just relax and let our own best friend/ally come to our rescue or be on our side and ...

Let life do its thing, ride the wave of each moment by moment experience, and feel good about that and get on with things - that can be our contribution. Use our talents and skills, effort and energy - and then allow a little room for life's good graces to weave some magic.

And we can look forward - knowing that life is looking after us and all will be well

we can let things get on top of us and ...

we can step back and let life do its thing . . .

  • but along with this we need just to play our part and be in the game called life
  • play our part, put in our effort, make our contribution
  • then we can really sit back and see the play of life unfold

Set your mind on what you need to achieve and then let life's magic play its little but important part.

And go for it!

Hope you enjoyed it and found it beneficial. Be inspired to become more in 2010. Make the most of every moment you have. 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.

Click Here

I don't want you to miss out on this spectacular opportunity to not only create your own book as quickly as 14 days from now... but to take advantage of the tremendous price savings as well.



PS -- I know you've been thinking about writing a book some day.

Well, where will you be in 14 days?

So, that is all for this month - doesn't time fly! Another year is racing away with us.

Many thanks to all of you who have been reading these ezines over the months. And for your good wishes, comments and suggestions.
