The Tangible Benefits of Gratitude
Health – Research has proven that practicing gratitude improves our emotional and physical well-being, reduces stress, worry, fear, anxiety and the conditions closely associated with these emotions such as high blood pressure, depression, heart disease, and immune system deficiencies.
Relationships – I loved what Joel Osteen said in my interview with him. Our partners usually fulfill only about 80% of our needs. Most people, however, focus on the 20% that’s missing. Thus, they ultimately become unhappy and unfulfilled. Sadly, many people will leave the relationship to find that 20% in someone else. What they find is that “new” person will also fulfill only about 80% of their needs as well—their just different needs and expectations from their last partner.
The key is to focus on the 80% of what is right, wonderful and beautiful about your partner and your relationship. Your positive perspective will change how you appreciate, interact and support your partner, thus garnering a much different response and engagement from them.
Wealth – When you see the glass half-full versus half-empty, you will start to see the abundance of water all around you. When you attune your mind to abundance you will start to develop new ideas, and see the opportunity and potential all around you. Your positive outlook will change how you walk, talk and interact in the world. Other influential and resourceful “birds of a feather” will also see the commonality and want to connect with you.
Put on your rose colored glasses.
Gratitude is a choice. It can become a positive habit—but only with discipline. With continued exercise and practice, it will create more abundance, prosperity, well-being, joy and happiness than you ever thought possible.

I WILL HAVE A WONDERFUL MARRIAGE
YOU WILL HAVE A WONDERFUL MARRIAGE
LAURA WILL HAVE A WONDERFUL MARRIAGE.
And you can use this in any area, EX. I will have a successful business...whatever...
Also, the power of putting the images of what you believe you will become daily in front of you. My husband and I are looking at dedicating a small area in our house to be a "Dream Wall"- for example the pictures (literally) and written expressions of our goals and beliefs of where we are going. There is power in looking at these things daily....and if you have to walk by it every day, it is feeding you with hope and belief of where you are going. It is a key to keep your focus on what your mission is. As a man thinketh, so is he.

Amounts Owed 30%
Length of Credit History 15%
New Credit 10%
Types of Credit Used 10%
How do you increase your fico score?
1. Pay your bills on time.
2. If you have missed payments, get current and stay current.
3. Paying off a collection account will not remove it from your credit report.
4. If you are having trouble making ends meet, contact your creditors or a credit counselor.
5. Keep balances low on credit cards and other revolving credit (use less than 50% of your total limit).
6. Pay off debt rather than moving it around.
7. Don't close un-used credit cards.
8. Don't open new credit cards just to increase your available credit.
9. Do your rate shopping for a given loan within a focused period of time.
FICO scores distinguish between a search for a single loan and a search for many new
credit lines, in part by the length of time over which inquiries occur.

Building systems into your life that line up with your beliefs. If you say you believe in something...whether a dream, goal, or core values....daily put a drop in the bucket. The great thing about the law of averages is as you drop a little in the bucket daily....you get to build off of what you put in yesterday....so there you have it...MULTIPLICATION!
Surround yourself with people that are better than you and they will save you from a life of complacency and arrogance. You will always see a place to grow and you'll never be able to believe the lie you have it all together.

Jim Rohn inspired the previous selection, but here are some direct quotes from him.
1. Taking care of yourself is one of the answers to doing well.
2. Get around successful people and listen.
3. Find out what poor people read and don't read it.
4. We have 16 waking hours. Practice listening those 16 hours.
5. From surprising sources comes great ideas.
6. Poor people ought to take rich people out to dinner and listen...
Hope energizes when the body is tired.
Hope sweetens when the bitterness bites.
Hope believes when the evidence is eliminated.
Hope climbs over obstacles when no one is helping.
Hope smiles confidently when no one is laughing.
Hope presses toward victory when no one is encourages.
Hope brings the victory when no one is winning.
Hope motivates when discouragement comes.
Hope sings when all melodies are gone.
Hope listens for answers when no one is talking.
Hope endures hardship when no one is caring.
Hope reaches for answers when no one is asking.
Hope dares to give when no one is sharing.
You don't need a better environment you need more hope.
Leaders are dealers in hope.

2.) Come up with a Life Sentence --- (discussed by John Maxwell). "a statement summarizing the goal and purpose of one's life."

b. Mel Robbins: "I make a difference every day."
c. Clare Boothe Luce: "I want to be a great communicator."
3.) Actively read and study things that encourage you and touch on the things you are passionate about.
Have you ever noticed that you can break the awkwardness with people you see by being the first to burst out with a friendly hello....just confronting your intimidation with a healthy HEY THERE, HOW ARE YOU DOING!
Be the First to say Hello Today!
In Winston Churchill's profile, it shows a quote of his.
- Everything I was sure or taught to be sure was impossible, has happened.”
- “We must look to the future. We cannot afford to drag forward across the years that are to come the hatreds and revenges which have sprung from the injuries of the past.”
Even after the Germans began bombing London during World War II, Churchill ran Britain’s campaign from the city. He lived and worked in an underground bunker, as did many Londoners. Despite pleas from aides and Parliament, Churchill’s refusal to evacuate helped foster a spirit of determination and courage among British subjects.
Doesn't this just make your heart burn with passion inside of you! What zeal he had! It just takes a little time and persistence to get the wisdom to go with it.

The entrepreneur’s most important job is to design a business that can grow, add value to its customers, bring prosperity to all those who work on the business, be charitable and eventually no longer need the entrepreneur. Before there is a business, a successful entrepreneur is designing this type of business in his or her mind’s eye. According to my rich dad, this is the job of a true entrepreneur.
