Why I quit Chat To Text

Today is a bit of a sad day.

I quit Chat To Text after being in it for a year.

There were changes made to the commission structure that I could not agree with nor did I feel that it would be marketable with the new commission structure.

It is a shame because I put many hours into it.

With every trial though there is a lesson and I've learned a few from here, so I can thank CTT for that.

1. Think VERY HARD before joining a new start up in Network Marketing. I know all new start up's are going to disagree with me on that and of course there are people that do get in at the start and it works out. But they are far and in-between. Safer to join a company that has at min. 5 years stable track record.

2. Investigate the founders before joining a any Network Marketing Co.
If they don't have a background in Network Marketing itself then don't join. There will be too many trial and errors during the ride to get it right before they discover what really works and does not work. In the mean time you suffer as a rep. with all the growing pains.

3. If there are no terms and conditions in writing, RUN! This means they can change things on the whim and not be accountable to anyone. After all if they don't have it in writing, it's not legally binding.

In retrospect, I loved the Chat to Text application. It was great in how it worked. Getting a text message on my cell phone when someone had a question about my blog here, or on one of the social sites I have was a great idea! It was unique and useful for any small business owner that had a website online. This is what attracted me to Chat to Text in the first place. Why not stay as a customer then?
Because I cannot condone their actions on the business end by paying them money for their application.

So, learning these lessons has taught me a great deal about Network Marketing Companies in general, so with that; I have to say it was worth it!

Thank you and wishing you more Wealth and Riches in your life!

Failure?

"Every failure is a lesson well-learned, every success is a battle well- fought." The yardstick of success is not achievements, but how well we learned our lessons, and how we, in turn, allowed ourselves to touch lives of others, that they, too, might make it. What am I for, if I'm not for my Maker and others?"The virtue of friendship isn't in finding a perfect friend, but loving the friend perfectly. True friendship doesn't have a happy ending....it simply doesn't end."


The road to success is not straight. There is a curve called Failure, a loop called Confusion, speed bumps called Friends, red lights called Enemies, caution lights called Family. You will have flats called Jobs.

But, if you have a spare called Determination, an engine called Perseverance, insurance called Faith, a driver called Jesus, you will make it to a place called Success.

"Failure should be our teacher, not our undertaker. Failure is delay, not defeat. It is a temporary detour, not a dead end. Failure is something we can avoid only by saying nothing, doing nothing, and being nothing." ~Denis Waitley~


"Men succeed when they realize that their failures are the preparation for their victories."~Ralph Waldo Emerson~

"I never see failure as failure, but only as the game I must play to win." -- Tom Hopkins

"Don’t let your victories go to your head, or your failures go to your heart."
~Unknown

"When the archer misses the mark, he turns and looks for the fault within himself. Failure to hit the bull's eye is never the fault of the target. To improve your aim - improve yourself."Gilbert Arland Writer

"Lack of will power has caused more failure than lack of intelligence or ability."

"Many of life's failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up." -- Thomas Edison

"You're on the road to success when you realize that failure is only a detour."
~Anonymous~


Why so many quotes of failure? Because we all need to know what failure really is and is not. Now that you know, quit beating yourself up and go and be what you want to be, do what you want to do; and have what you want to have.

Wishing you more Wealth and Riches in your life.

The Job Scheme

Job Scheme- You work hard to pay your bills, a roof over your head, food on the table, a car in the driveway. Year after year you do this barely making enough to continue having a roof over your head, food on the table & a car in the driveway.

Problem is you notice that the owner and maybe a select few at the top has more than enough money, but for some reason you do not...You have entered "The Job Scheme".


The good news is, when you are old enough to retire, you'll have your 401k money income and social security income to barely make enough to have a roof over your head, food on the table, and a car in the driveway until you die...hopefully!

A true form legal Pyramid where the people at the very top get RICH and as it trickles down, there is less and less money; the bottom being where the MOST of the people are, doing the daily things a business needs to survive.

Oh I suppose nature is like this too. The bee colony for example. You have the Queen bee, and then the workers. The queen gives the orders and makes sure there will be future generations (of workers and one queen to take her place later when she's too old to multiply). The workers go out and find the pollen, return to make the hive and honey to feed the babies, and the cycle goes on and on.

Or the Lions. The female lions do all the hunting while the male KING lion lazes around in the sun. She brings home the bacon so to speak, and he grabs some and eats. He does have a function of being intimidating and protecting any unwanted lions from entering in the fold, but over all it's the females doing all the work.

Thank God though, we are more than animals. We actually are given choice.
That means we even have a choice to break out of "The Job Scheme" and become the "Queen" or "King". And that my friends is the BEST thing about Network Marketing. Each person is the owner of his own business, which co-working as a team of other owners to create lots of money for EVERYONE that actually puts in the effort. Those that do not, end up falling away and staying in The Job Scheme. And those that do stay, are those that have the CHOICE of exiting the Job Scheme and becoming full time with other networkers that have done it before them.

Does it happen overnight? Only people that I've known that don't have jobs overnight are people who were either fired or won the lottery. The others worked their way on out. Great Plan! Easy? No, workable? Yes.

More Wealth and Riches in your life!

Ningxia Wolfberry, the most Powerful Antioxidant in the World

The Ningxia wolfberry, a small red medicinal berry has been gaining attention as a functional superfood and antioxidant powerhouse since it hit the market in 2000.

Native to Ningxia Hui, China, wolfberry or Lycium barbarum L has long been regarded as a national treasure and has been used by Olympic coaches as their "secret weapon" to achieve gold medal results. It is now being studied world wide for its health benefits.

What's behind Aging and Illness?

To understand how the Ningxia wolfberry help combat accelerated aging and illness, you have to understand what causes it.

Have you ever noticed that an older person smells different than a younger person? It is not unreasonable to compare aging with going rancid from the inside out as our fats go stale and proteins become caramelized.
The buildup of oxidized fats and malformed proteins in the body builds up an aroma which no deodorant can eradicate.

Free radicals is what causes the buildup of rancid fats and denatured proteins within us.

You could say a good part of aging is the result of continuous free radicals attacking the cells of the body. As rancid fats and denatured proteins build up in our tissues, our cells become overwhelmed and start to self-destruct.

What happens to cells that suffer a daily onslaught of free radical attacks?
*They die off
* They mutate and become harful cells that can be linked to cancer, Alzheimer's disease, heart disease, Parkinson's disease, and many other degenerative diseases of aging. Blunting free-radical damage can bring about major improvements to health, especially as people grow older.

Antioxidants are the heroes that neutralize these molecular bad guys. They help reduce inflammation, keep arteries flexible, and preserve the genetic material of each cell. While the human body produces some antioxidants naturally, others must be replenished through food sources.

Top Antioxidant Foods
ORAC Scores
Antioxidants are visible to the eye as pigments in the color of plants. Some antioxidants have medicinal value. Among the numerous benefits of berries is ellagic acid found in the wolfberry. Research has shown that ellagic acid increases phase II liver enzyme activity, lending critical support to the liver's detox mechanisms.

The ORAC score is a scientific standard that determines which foods or substances have significant antioxidant value. The higher the score, the greater the substance's power as an antioxidant. Of all major foods on the planet, the Ningxia wolfberry delivers the most antioxidants.

NingXia wolfberry (dried)- 303
Chinese wolfberry - 202
Acai - 184
Black Raspberry - 164
Pomegranate - 105
Prune - 57

Can the Wolfberry Enhance Immunity?
The immune system in the intestines and the rest of the body is composed of polysaccharides (glycoproteins). Its components are proteins that need the correct sugars to function properly. This is one of the reasons that refined sugars depress the immune system. Ningxia wolfberry provides the right sugars, thus enhancing the immune system.

* In a 1988 report published by the State Scientific and Technological Commission of China, scientists reported that the immune-enhancing effect of wolfberries showed a 700 point increase in white blood cell counts, a 10% increase in lymphocyte transformation rates, and a 75% increase in immunoglobin A (a decline is associated with aging).

The Wisdom of Whole Foods
Natural Polyphenols Outperform Vitamins
Recent studies raise questions about how effective Vitamin C, E, and beta carotene really are. Why? Supplements don't provide the protection seen in diets rich in fruits and vegetables. The real benefit appears to be when you get these antioxidants from food based sources, such as fruits and vegetables.

The fruits richest in antioxidants, such as wolfberries, raspberries, blueberries, and pomegranates may represent one of the most important natural therapies to slow the onset of degenerative diseases.

Who Can Drink Ningxia Wolfberry Juice?
Anyone with a digestive system, including pets. There have been no known side effects to Ningxia wolfberry, including to children. The latter should not be exposed to any whole food before six months of age. After that, smaller amounts compared to an adult are recommended until they appear to tolerate higher portions.

Serving portions may vary from 1/2 ounce to 30 ounces per day.

Start with an ounce per day of Ningxia Red juice. If positive results are seen, increase the portion gradually until improvement in the condition is observed.

There is no best time to drink Ningxia Red. Do it when it fits your schedule. Some people notice such an increase in energy that they avoid it before bedtime. It is probably best on an empty stomach, since you do not want to dilute your stomach acid, which is vital for digestion and for healthy flora.

Liver issues? Look to Ningxia Red & Juva Flex

Today, instead of providing all the scientific facts (and there are plenty. If you want to know scientific facts about Ningxia Wolfberry, I'd recommend purchasing the book: Ningxia Wolfberry: the Ultimate Superfood by Gary oung MN, Ronald Lawrence MD, PhD, Marc Schreuder)of the ability of Ningxia Red and Juva Flex to make a difference in people's lives that have liver issues I'm going to provide instead actual Testimonials:




Testimonial: That Wolfberry juice


Author: Deborah Carlton
Location: Yarmouth, ME, United States

Posted: 2006-05-07
One of my clients literally tracked me down for another bottle of that delicious Wolfberry Juice at the health fair this weekend.

This man is 75, has been a drinker all of his adult life and this is his choice. One could imagine the shape of his liver and expresses the typical symptoms and discomforts that one might expect. I had pointed to the wolfberry juice because he had been sick with a persistent respiratory infection, but also because of its benefits for the liver. He had agreed to try the first bottle somewhat skeptically, and I hadn’t heard from him since, so thought nothing of it. But as the end of that bottle drew near, he was pretty determined to get more of that 'kickapoo juice' and said simply that it was 'making him feel better.'

Nice~

Recovered from liver failure & cardiac arrest


Author: Jennifer Holden

Location: Maple Grove, MN, United States

Posted: 2008-08-03
Dear Friends,

I've decided to start by sharing a little bit about my story. My hope is that others might experience the same incredible healing I now appreciate. Please share this information with others.

The following is a version of a letter I sent to Gary & Mary Young, founders of Young Living, after a life changing experience I feel I had as a result of using their products.

Dear Gary & Mary,

I want to extend a heart-filled thanks to both of you, for your hard work and dedication, as well as to all others who make Young Living possible. I feel very strongly that because of God's amazing grace and your efforts, which have resulted in the product line you offer, I am literally alive today to share the following with you.

In a nutshell, I was hospitalized on Monday, March 17, 2008. I experienced liver failure and cardiac arrest, which landed me in intensive care. On Wednesday, March 19th my liver enzyme levels were the following: the ALT was 5907 & the AST was at 3116. My INR level was also at 2.57. As I'm sure you know, the normal liver enzyme level range is between 0 & 50, and the normal INR range is 0.86 & 1.14. I was transferred to another hospital and put under the care of a liver transplant team. The doctors did not expect me to recover without a liver transplant.

On Tuesday, I had called my sister, Brenda, and the rest of my family. Brenda, bless her soul, brought me 4 bottles of NingXia Red, Young Living personal care products and rubbed oils on my feet for hours at a time. Upon her oils treatments and the drinking of NingXia Red (a bottle a day), my enzyme levels started dropping dramatically. By Saturday, March 22nd, 1 day before Easter and 3 days before my 34th birthday, I was sent home. My enzyme levels were still around 2500, but the doctors said they had done all they could and hopped that my numbers would continue to decline. I was advised to follow up with my primary care physician weekly.

By April 25th, 2008, approximately 1 month later, my liver enzyme levels were back to normal (ALT 33 & AST 36)!! My INR levels, and everything else that was off, also went back to normal.

Some doctors said that they had never seen anything like it, that I had experienced a miracle. It was also stated that long-term permanent damage is not anticipated. My healing experience IS a miracle, a GIFT from God, but I also acknowledge and know that the products you have made possible are a HUGE part of the equation and reason for my miraculous healing.

I am now, still, drinking NingXia Red daily, taking JuvaTone, using Juva Flex or Juva Cleanse and other Young Living products to keep my health on the right track. And now, more than ever, I am really excited about telling people about the products you offer, with the hope that they too will have the opportunity to experience the same miraculous healing!

Thank you again for your work and for all the love and support provided through the opportunity of being part of the Young Living Family.

May God continue to bless you and your family, much love and appreciation,

Jennifer

I was diagnosed with hepato-pulmonary syndrome. I was on oxygen 24/7! (My lungs were being affected because of cirrhosis of my liver) I spoke with the only known specialist worldwide for this condition at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN. He told me I would be on oxygen for the rest of my life. I started cleansing my liver and putting Juva Flex directly on my liver and my liver foot reflexology point. Within two weeks I was off the oxygen! This was Jan. '05 and I am still great! I don't use the oil every day anymore but I still use it for back-up...just in case. The oils work sooo well. I thank The Lord & Gary Young for this wonderful oil and Young Living!!

Ningxia Red for Fibromyalgia

Author: Brent Gast

Location: Bemidji, MN, United States

Posted: 2005-10-05

My mother-in-law had been suffering with Fibromyalgia for some time and was slowly getting worse. She is a nurse in an O.R. department and works long hours, up at 4:30a.m. and to bed around 9:30 p.m. For pain she was on Tramadal HCL two to four times per day, she took 600mg of Ibuprophin 4 times a day and was taking a muscle relaxer Orphenadrine Citrate ER twice a day as needed. (In the evening). She was unable to sleep in her bed any more and still couldn't sleep all the night through in her recliner.

My wife Sara and I had just joined Young Living and had our new Essential Oils Desk Reference and When my mother-in-law came over she wanted to know what it said about Fibromyalgia. On page 336 it says 'Fibromyalgia is an acid condition in which the liver is Toxic.' On page 463 in the section on Ningxia Wolfberry research it says it 'protects liver function'.

So we thought if she only tries one thing it may be a good choice to try Ningxia Red. So she ordered a bottle 'to help us out'. She started drinking 2 Tbs each morning, for about two weeks then she felt kind of better so she figured she would just quit drinking it. Within a couple days she noticed the pain returning and thought 'maybe it was working' and started her two Tbs per morning again and within one more week of starting back up she was off ALL the meds even Ibuprophen. She sleeps through the night in bed. She tells us she feels energetic and pain free, and will not go with out it again. So by trying one bottle she knows it helps her to get through her day and feels like doing things in the evening, even after a long day at work.

I have seen the difference in her, it's almost like two different people. If someone you know suffers from Fibromyalgia it is worth mentioning.

Liver cancer is history


Author: Beverly Carter

Location: Houston, TX, United States

Posted: 2006-11-17
An old friend has been fighting breast cancer for 16 years and it had moved into her liver. The doctor's tried everything and recommended her for hospice.

I made a Liver Cancer blend of 30 drops frankincense, 20 drops lavender, 10 drops tsuga, 10 drops ledum and 4 Tablespoons of castor oil. These were supposed to be applied directly over the liver but since she was unconscious and attached to a lot of tubing, I got her husbands approval and I simply applied them to her feet - praying over the oils and commanding them to do the work in her body that God created them to do and calling down supernatural healing from Heaven on her behalf.

That night, the nurses said she slept more peacefully than any night she had been in the hospital. The next day, however, the doctor's had further bad news. They told the family that the cancer had moved to her brain and was metastasizing and that it was attacking the area that created speech, so basically she would never be able to talk to her family again and she would only survive 24hrs - 10 days tops.

I simply took all of that news and filed it in my 'whatever' bin and anointed her again on her feet with the blend I had put together. Her family began calling it her daily spa treatment. But I knew it was more powerful than that and God knew even more - in fact He had other plans all together. On the third day, she was awake and answering questions by nodding. I did her 'spa treatment' and prayed over her.

On the fourth day she was talking - answering simple 'yes' and 'no' but TALKING - doctors were baffled - I was not. I knew each day that something else WONDERFUL was going to happen. On the fifth day, she was fully talking, laughing and joking with the nurses and teasing her brother. She was now requesting 'spa treatments'. She also began to have bowel movements - several - this even though she had been on only IV's for 3-4 weeks! I believe her body was cleansing and getting rid of the cancer! PRAISE THE LORD!!

On the sixth day, they announced she was strong enough and they transferred her to a hospice near her home. The doctors still expected her to die. They kept saying that this was a temporary recovery before the end - God bless 'em.

In case some of you are unaware, hospice is the place where they send patients to die. It is terminal care to make them comfortable when medical science has done all they know to do and can't do anymore. It is extremely depressing and no one leaves hospice except to go into eternity. No one, that is, except someone that God has supernaturally healed. That is right, she was in hospice about a week and they told her to go home - they just couldn't understand why someone eating regular food and showering on their own needed hospice!

Wishing you more Wealth and Riches in your health and every area of your life!

NingXia Wolfberry Reduces Cholesterol

The NingXia Wolfberry (A berry grown in China in the providence of NingXia)has been proven to reduce cholesterol.

For hundreds of years, the Ningxia wolfberry has been used in traditional medicinal tonics to remove fat from the blood, lower cholesterol levels, and cut inflammation.

According to the Book NingXia Wolfberry: the Ultimate Superfood a 1988 report by the State Scientific and Technological Commission of China, reported on a clinical trial of 50 people aged 64-80 who were given 50 grams of wolfberries for 10 days. At the end of the sutdy, the lipid peroxide levels in their blood dropped by 65%.

Also a 2001 Chinese Academy of Sciences study conducted at the Shanghai Institute of Organic Chemistry found that polysaccharides from Ningxia wolfberry dramatically inhibited the oxidation of harmful low density (LDL) cholesterol. High levels of oxidized cholesterol are more strongly linked with coronary heart disease than high blood fat levels.

Reducing Cholesterol by drinking an organic juice in my opinion is a whole lot better than taking medication that has potential side effects.

I'd highly recommend taking NingXia Red drink on a daily bases for your over all health and well being.

Peace

These times of people loosing their jobs and sometimes families, there is a lack of peace in people's lives. Perhaps even your life...

God wants us to have peace in our lives regardless of our circumstances.

This blog is called Wealth and Riches because it is my desire to see you Wealthy and Rich in every area of your life. Spiritually, financially, physically, and in your relationships with others.
It's not always easy to have a well balanced life, but I do believe it is achievable when we focus on each area of our lives to have all these traits. I'm not promising you can gain each one overnight, some takes years to attain fully, but I do believe you can start building each into your life starting today.

Peace...How in the world do we have it when things around us are anything but peaceful?

First we must come to realize that peace does not mean perfection around us or even in ourselves.
We might be experiencing a job loss, or threat of a job loss. Perhaps a family challenge, or a health issue. Yet we can have peace when we pay attention to our spiritual lives and understand where peace can come from.

In the Bible Jesus says "These things I have spoken unto you, that in me you might have peace. In the world you shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world."- John 16:33

Jesus is pointing out that in the world we have tribulations. Other words for "tribulation" would be affliction, hardship, distress, adversity. We all have those in this world, there is no doubt, but let's focus on what Jesus promise is: "be of good cheer; I have overcome the world".
That's great news! You see through Jesus we can be of good cheer even when hardship and adversity comes our way!

Philippians 4:7 tells us "and the peace of God, which passes all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

How? let's jump up to verse 6. It says "Be careful for nothing, but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be known unto God."

So we are to start by petitioning God through prayer along with giving thanks.
We always have something to be thankful for, even if it's the breath of life.

The other day I asked someone I've known for a few years "how are you doing?" and he said
"I'm upright and breathing".
Well, it's a start anyhow. If you have nothing more to be thankful for, you can be thankful that you are alive.

Now let's go deeper and find how we can have this peace that God is giving us.
In Philippians 4:8 the bible tells us what we are to dwell on:
"Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are
*true
whatsoever things are
*honest
whatsoever things are
*just
whatsoever things are
*pure
whatsoever things are
*lovely,
whatsoever things are of
*good report;
if there by any
*virtue, and if there be any
*praise,
think on these things.

Let's break these words down into further meaning to so can apply them to our daily lives:

True: (not concealed or hidden) As in secrets or gossip. Only things that are true.

Honest: honorable in principles, intentions, and actions; upright and fair

Just: innocent, holy, righteous

Pure: clean or blameless

Lovely: friendly toward, affection of the heart towards others

Good report: well spoken, reputable

Virtue: valor, excellence, praise. Valor means boldness or determination in facing great danger, esp. in battle; heroic courage; bravery

Praise: commendable thing, praise worthy.

Those are a lot of things to think about! Fill your mind with these things instead of your challenges and your problems and Gods peace will fill you instead of fear and turmoil.

May you have more Wealth and Riches in your life today!

Opportunity often comes...

"Opportunity often comes disguised in the form of misfortune, or temporary defeat." -- Napoleon Hill

With that statement in mind, how can we take today's economy into mind?
We watch and listen to how horrible things are in the news day in and day out for a few years now. Unemployment at it's highest since 1982...x amount of people being laid off from this company and that company. How the States and Nation is in debt and on and on and on.

I'd say this is one of the greatest opportunities we are facing in our lifetime!
Seems like a strange statement. Even foreign. Maybe Dexter is with his head stuck in a hole in the ground you might say?

Let's look at history. Did you know more Millionaires were made during the great depression then at any other time in history? I did not live back then, but I would image the average citizen heard on the radio each night how bad the depression was and woke up each morning to their coffee and newspaper to even more bad news. People jumping out of windows committing suicide because of the stock market plunge. Yet....there were more Millionaires made during this time than any other time at that point in history. How, why? And how knowing this knowledge can bring prosperity into our lives today?

What was different from the person that became a Millionaire to the person lined up in the soup line because he couldn't even buy groceries?

It was how they seen things. It was their attitude. Like the quote above, they seen opportunity in
disguise! They seen it for what it was and took the bull by the horns and made money from it!

Yes today's economy is different. Things are changing. Jobs are no longer being perceived as "secure" as they once was. That is NOT a bad thing. That is a GOOD thing.

You see it's time to enlarge your vision. To look beyond a "job". I'll give you a recent example:

There is this man who found a way to make money wearing a company's shirt. Yeah, what most of us wear from time to time, maybe with a company's name a and logo on it, but we don't get paid. But he does. Now watch this video about him and I'm going to make a point. Especially notice the guy at the end asking about a job: Go here now and click on the video once you get there: http://www.reuters.com/article/lifestyleMolt/idUSTRE5A50K620091106
Scroll down after watching the video clip






The guy that said "I'd love to get a job like yours. Where can I sign up?"
The difference between the two men are like the gap between the North and South Poles! Jason who created the business and the other man who had only a "job mentality". The truth is Jason who created iwearyourshirt.com didn't start a job, he started a business. You can bet the man looking for a so called "easy job" made half of what Jason made in 2009. Why? Jason created something of value where the job minded man was only looking for an easy buck.

Yes, being in business can be challenging! It can also be very rewarding!
Take the risk, find an opportunity in disguise and create something with value. Once you do, you'll see your financial well being sky rocket!

More Wealth and Riches in your life.

Plastic Containers can be deadly

Cancer Update from John Hopkins

This information is being circulated at Walter Reed Army Medical Center as well.


No plastic containers in microwave.



No water bottles in freezer.



No plastic wrap in microwave.


A dioxin chemical causes cancer, especially breast cancer.


Dioxins are highly poisonous to the cells of our bodies. Don't freeze your plastic Bottles with water in them as this releases dioxins from the plastic.


Recently, Edward Fujimoto, Wellness Program Manager at Castle Hospital , Was on a TV program to explain this health hazard. He talked about dioxins and how bad they are for us.


He said that we should not be heating our food in the
Microwave using plastic containers...


This especially applies to foods that contain fat.


He said that the combination of fat, high heat, and plastics releases dioxin Into the food and ultimately into the cells of the body...


Instead, he recommends using glass, such as Corning Ware, Pyrex or ceramic Containers for heating food... You get the same results, only without the dioxin.
So such things as TV dinners, instant ramen and soups, etc., Should be removed from the container and heated in something else.
Paper isn't bad but you don't know what is in the paper.
It's just safer to use tempered glass, Corning Ware, etc. He reminded us that a while ago some of the fast food restaurants moved away From the foam containers to paper. The dioxin problem is one of the reasons...


Also, he pointed out that plastic wrap, such as Saran, is just as dangerous when Placed over foods to be cooked in the microwave. As the food is nuked, the high Heat causes poisonous toxins to actually melt out of the plastic wrap and drip into the food.
Cover food with a paper towel instead.

This is an article that should be sent
to anyone important in
your life!

ALSO -------------------------------------

Bottled water in your car
Very dangerous.



A friend whose mother was recently diagnosed with breast cancer and the Doctor told her: women should not drink bottled water that has been left in a car.

The doctor said that the heat and the plastic of the bottle have certain chemicals that can lead to breast cancer. So please be careful and do not drink bottled water that has been left in a car, and, pass this on to all the women in your life. This information is the kind we need to know and be aware and just might save us! The heat causes toxins from the plastic to leak into the water and they have found these toxins in breast tissue. Use a stainless steel Canteen or a glass bottle when you can!

LET EVERYONE WHO HAS A WIFE / GIRLFRIEND / DAUGHTER KNOW PLEASE.

Self Limitations Discovered!

Self Limitations...

Do you have any? Do you know if you have any really?
I'm going to open up and give you a great example of having one myself and not even knowing it until I overcame it.

About five months ago I lost my wife's ID. Not a big deal when you're an American Citizen, but a big deal when you're not. At least this was my mind frame at the time because not only did I loose her State ID, but also her Permanent Resident Card also which basically proves she has a right to be here legally.

So all this time I was thinking that it would not be possible to replace her State ID card unless she had other ID to prove who she was. She does have her passport, but it has her maiden name on it as we never updated her Passport yet to reflect her married name.

Well, I got the idea just yesterday (after 5 long months of delay) to go ahead and go down to the D.M.V and just see if we could get her State ID again.
We filled out a simple form (took no more then 2 minutes) and brought it back up to the counter. He asked what her SS# was, she gave it verbally; and within 10 minutes we were walking out of the place with a new State ID card for her! WOW, that was easy I proclaimed! We both were in awe of how our limiting belief's kept us from getting her ID which was so important to have.

So now I'm asking myself more internal questions and I encourage you to do the same "what other belief's do I have that are limiting my abundance?" Find the answer and then take ACTION NOW to correct what ever it is, so you too can have more Wealth and Riches in your own life now.

Longwood Adventure

"Exquisite flowers, majestic trees, dazzling fountains, extravagant conservatory, starlit theater, thunderous organ—all describe the magic of Longwood Gardens".



Pierre DuPont founder of DuPont chemical company used part of his fortune to develop the property into what it is today. Mr. DuPont created a foundation for the property so it would endure and be enjoyed by the public.








My wife Mae at the Visitor Center right before we entered in to buy our tickets.



What a beautiful wife I have! We were here at Longwood as part of our celebration of being married for two years now.

DuPont's Ballroom Fireplace


I can see that Mr. DuPont knew how to use his money to be both Wealthy and Rich.
May we all aspire to use our money to better people's lives and the environment around us.

The Rose

The Rose
=========

James was a highly respected officer in the army. In his spare
time, he liked to surf the net and talk to new people online.

He had been talking to a woman for some time now and had a sort
of internet relationship with her. He had actually fallen in
love with her. The only problem was that any time he asked her
about sending a picture her response was "if you love me this
much then what I look like doesn't matter."

So he agreed and let it go.

Later, even without seeing her but only knowing her personality
and how loving and caring she was, he asked her to marry him, to
which she answered yes. They decided to meet at a train station
for the first time and she told him that she would be wearing a
red rose so that he would know who she was.

Well the time came and James stood there in his full officers
uniform waiting ever so anxiously for her to come off of the
train.

Then he looked over to see a tall blonde with a short cut dress,
nice legs, long hair waving back and forth in the wind and the
most beautiful eyes he had ever seen. He couldn't believe his
eyes. . .

. . .then from behind her appeared an older heavyset woman
wearing a red rose.

As the beautiful woman walked by she asked, "Goin my way
soldier?" but James, as if he didn't even hear her, just turned
around standing at attention with tears of joy in his eyes and
looking at the older woman and said,

"It's a pleasure to finally meet you," to which the older lady
said, "I don't know why but that lady that just walked by told me
to wear this and if you came to me to tell you to meet her in
the restaurant across the street."

That is the way most of our lives are. The decisions we make
can change our lives. If you make the wrong choice you could
end up empty-handed but choosing the right way, even though it
may be the harder way, will work out always in the end.

We all have at least two choices to make,
the right one and the wrong one.

Which one will you make?

The Coconut Oil Miracle

Just finished up a borrowed book called The Coconut Oil Miracle by Bruce fife, C.N.,N.D.

I had no idea how many benefits we could get from Extra Virgin cold pressed Coconut Oil!

* Can help against Heart Disease when used in place of other oils to cook with.
Most oils are slightly rancid even on the store shelves and so can be very unhealthy for you. Coconut oil stands up to heat above any other oil out there, even olive oil. So I use both Oil Oil and Coconut oil in my cooking now.
Polyunsaturated oils become toxic when they are oxidized as the result of exposure to oxygen, heat, or light. (sunlight or artificial, cuasing rancidity and the formation of free radicals. Free radicals deplete our antioxidant reserves and cause chemical reactions and damage tissues and cells.

Today some 60 or so degenerative diseases are recognized as having free-radical involvement in their cause or manifestation.Research that linked the major killer diseases such as heart disease and cancer to free radicals has expand to include atherosclerosis, stroke, varicose veins, hemorrhoids, hypertension, wrinkled skin, dermatitis, arthritis, digestive problems, reproductive problems, cataracts, loss of energy, diabetes, allergies and failing memory.

The above reasons alone is why I use Coconut Oil and NingXia Red from Young Living



* You can lose weight just by eating coconut oil. Eat a tablespoon before every meal.
After a month you will see a difference. You won't loose a lot, but you will see a few pounds difference.

* Best "lotion" you could have for your skin. It's greasy and your skin absorbs it nicely. Even helps protect against the sun. It will make your skin nice and shiny and the look of your skin will be younger also. I use it on my arms and face and I have to say it's really great!

* Great for the hair too. Got dandruff problems? Put coconut oil on your hair at least 1 hour if not overnight before taking a shower. It works! It works! I've tried it and yes I've had bad dandruff since 15 years of age. I learned long time ago that most of the shampoos out there that fight dandruff also have very harsh chemicals in them too, so I stopped using them. I started using coconut oil in my hair about two months ago and so did my wife, and what a difference. My wife's hair is jet black and shiny and mine is virtually dandruff free.

* Coconut Oil as food and as Medicine

According to the Coconut Oil Miracle book there are many disease Prevention and Treatment Uses for Coconut oil.

^ Prevent heart disease, high blood pressure, atherosclerosis, and stroke
^ Prevent diabetes and relieve the symptoms and health risks associated wit hthe disease
^ Support the development of strong bones and teeth
^ Protect against Osteoporosis
^ Promote loss of excess weight
^ Kill viruses that cause mononucleosis, influenza, hepatitis C, measles, herpes, AIDS, and other illnesses.
^ Reduce symptoms associated with pancreatitis
and much much more listed!

Here's a video I found about Coconut Oil: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FTRMhv31FFQ


I highly recommend everyone to incorporate into their lives the use of coconut oil.
It can be bought at any Health Food Store.

More Wealth and Riches in your life!

Success Is Easy, But So Is Neglect by Jim Rohn

Success Is Easy, But So Is Neglect by Jim Rohn
(excerpted from The Challenge to Succeed CD series)

People often ask me how I became successful in that six-year period of time while many of the people I knew did not. The answer is simple: The things I found to be easy to do, they found to be easy not to do. I found it easy to set the goals that could change my life. They found it easy not to. I found it easy to read the books that could affect my thinking and my ideas. They found that easy not to do. I found it easy to attend the classes and the seminars, and to get around other successful people. They said it probably really wouldn’t matter. If I had to sum it up, I would say what I found to be easy to do, they found to be easy not to do. Six years later, I’m a millionaire and they are all still blaming the economy, the government, and company policies, yet they neglected to do the basic, easy things.

In fact, the primary reason most people are not doing as well as they could, and should, can be summed up in a single word: neglect.

It is not the lack of money—banks are full of money. It is not the lack of opportunity—America, and much of the world, continues to offer the most unprecedented and abundant opportunities in the last six thousand years of recorded history. It is not the lack of books—libraries are full of books, and they are free! It is not the schools—the classrooms are full of good teachers. We have plenty of ministers, leaders, counselors and advisors.

Everything we would ever need to become rich and powerful and sophisticated is within our reach. The major reason that so few take advantage of all that we have is simply neglect.

Neglect is like an infection. Left unchecked, it will spread throughout our entire system of disciplines and eventually lead to a complete breakdown of a potentially joy-filled and prosperous human life.

Not doing the things we know we should do causes us to feel guilty, and guilt leads to an erosion of self-confidence. As our self-confidence diminishes, so does the level of our activity. And as our activity diminishes, our results inevitably decline. And as our results suffer, our attitude begins to weaken. And as our attitude begins the slow shift from positive to negative, our self-confidence diminishes even more... and on and on it goes.

So my suggestion is, when given the choice of “easy to” and “easy not to,” that you do not neglect to do the simple, basic, “easy” but potentially life-changing activities and disciplines.

To Your Success,
Jim Rohn

ATG Survey Reveals Two-Thirds Of Online Consumers Want Live Voice Help And Live Text Chat

Posted by benpitman

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – October 7, 2009 – ATG (Art Technology Group, Inc., NASDAQ: ARTG), the premier provider of commerce solutions, today announced the results of a consumer survey that explores shoppers’ perceptions of – and preferences for – live help options such as click to call and click to chat when browsing and buying products or services online.

The most striking data from the survey found that 67 percent of consumers value the option of having both a live text chat and a live voice conversation to get the help they need when making online purchases. The survey also found that live help availability on Web sites is not meeting the demand that exists among consumers – only 21 percent and 37 percent of respondents have tried click to call and click to chat respectively, despite indicating a clear preference for live help versus other online service options, such as email inquiries. As a result of these findings, ATG experts suggest that online businesses have a significant opportunity to increase sales and loyalty by offering customers proactive live help options – both voice and text chat – to their online channels.

Several other key conclusions of the survey of over 1,000 Internet users found:

* Online consumers rated the availability of live help as the third most important of seven core Web site features
* 70 percent of consumers rated click to call – defined as a direct connection with a live voice agent without having to go through an Interactive Voice Response system (IVR) – as “extremely useful” or “very useful”
* Certain factors such as higher-priced products or services, complexity of questions, errors in the transaction process, and sensitivity of information were identified as main determinants for consumers choosing live call over live chat

The full results and analysis of this survey can be found in ATG’s newly released research report, “Consumer Views of Live Online Help: Voice and Text Chat.”

“ATG is dedicated to identifying key trends in commerce and consumer behaviors. We’re using that knowledge to deliver the solutions that will best help online businesses exceed their customers’ needs and expectations,” said Ryan Hoppe, marketing director for ATG Optimization Services. “The results of this survey show that consumers not only prefer e-commerce sites that offer easy, instant voice and chat connections to customer care representatives; but most importantly, they reward those sites with their business. It’s now more important than ever that online businesses make it easy for online shoppers to receive real-time assistance – via both click to call and click to chat. This study shows that a toll-free number is simply not good enough to meet consumers’ rising expectations for immediate online customer service.”

This independent survey asked respondents about their browsing, researching, and buying behaviors for online retail products and consumer goods, financial services and banking, travel and hospitality, and online service providers such as telecommunications and cable companies.

Specific questions focused on:

* Identifying the frequency of browsing / researching products or services online
* Identifying frequency of purchasing products or completing applications / forms for services online
* Reporting on the typical price range or value of orders or transactions placed online
* Ranking specific Web site features that consumers deem most important to their online shopping experience
* Characterizing factors that drive consumers to seek live assistance when making a purchase online
* Identifying methods of customer service used and determining which of those methods are most useful when seeking assistance from a Web site
* Presenting respondents with scenarios and asking whether they would choose live call or live chat for assistance, and why
* Rating the usefulness of live call and live chat separately
* Rating the usefulness of live call and live chat together

ATG’s eStara Click to Call and Click to Chat services are interactive voice and text chat offerings that let people communicate directly with sales or customer service agents while researching, buying or getting service for products and services online. They are part of ATG’s line of Optimization Services, on-demand (SaaS) offerings which help businesses lift online revenue quickly, easily and measurably by optimizing every online interaction with prospective and existing customers.

Ethiopia Food Adventure

My wife and I went to an Ethiopia Outreach Ministry Banquet on Saturday.
Neither one of us knew too much what to expect as we never ever had Ethiopian food before. Would it good, would it be unbearable or perhaps way too spicy?

We went to learn not only of their food but also of their methods of raising money for the Ethiopians as we would like to do the same for single Filipino mothers one day.

It was held at a Mennonite church about a 45 minute drive from where we live.
It turned out to be a beautiful fall day for a drive. About 70 degree's with the sun shinning beautiful. The tree's are just barely turning colors with the start of fall here in Pennsylvania.

We arrived and was greeted by a nice elderly lady who had us sign in. To my surprise they had a name tag sticker ready for me with my first name as I had called the day before inquiring about their address. On the table was an offering box where we signed in and a good aroma filled the room. The table's were covered with colorful table clothes. Someone had asked if we ever had Ethiopian food before?
"No never, but I'm looking forward to trying it" I said.
So, a nice Ethiopian lady (who I could see was filled with the Holy Ghost, her eyes glowed bright) showed us to first take from a bowl a soft spongy sour pancake-like bread called "Injera" and unroll it and then take a serving spoon and put what ever food you liked on it. She allowed us to choose which foods we would choose. Of course I choose a little of each!



There I am with a little of each. Here is what each name of the food was on my plate:

Ke Minchet-Abish Wet- ground beef dish (Mildly hot & spicy)
Ingredients: onions, 90% lean ground beef, Ethioian spiced chili powder, Ethiopian spiced butter, cookingoil, false cardamom

Atikilt Alicha Wet- Vegetable dish (Neither spicy nor hot)
Ingredients: onions, garlic, cabbage, potato, carrot, bell pepper, canola vegetable oil, turmeric

Kei Ye'misir kikk Wet- Split Lentils Dish (Spicy)
Ingredients: lentils, onions, Ethiopian spiced chili powder, Ethiopian spiced buter, cooking oil, false cardamon, salt

Ye-gomen Wet- Vegetable Dish- Neither hot nor spicy
Ingredients: onions, freshly ground garlic and ginger, kale, jalapeno pepper, canola vegetable oil

Ye'doro Wet- Chicken dish- Mild hot & spicy
Ingredients: onions, chicken, hard boiled eggs, Tthiopian spiced chili powder, Ethiopian spiced butter, cooking oil, false cardamom, garlic,ginger, salt

Injera (soft spongy sour pancake like bread)
Ingredients: teff, a tiny, round grain that flourishes in the highlands of Ethiopia.

Well, there are no spoons nor forks used with this food. You simply use the Injera like bread and tear off a piece and scoop the food up and eat it. Simple, easy and fun.

It was quite an experience.I liked the De Minchet-Abish Wet the best and the Atikilt Alicha Wet was the most tasty vegetable dish.

I talked with the main organizer and learned quite a bit about how to organize such an advent. I'll be keeping this in mind for quite some time mixed with prayer on how we could do the same type of fund raiser.

I encourage you to try something new in your life soon. Make it an adventure like we did.

More Wealth and Riches in your life!

Money and Abundance...

Money and Abundance...


There is no lack in our lives, unless we believe there is. Belief is the key to what we see, what we have and what we accomplish. Everything the Creator has made or given us exists in abundance. Unfortunately, many of us are unaware of this fact. When we are not aware of God's goodness, grace, beauty and unlimited wealth, we accept lack, restriction and limitation as a part in life. The problem we experience has nothing to do with life, it is a function of our visions. If we want abundance, we must think abundantly. If we want wealth, we must believe we are wealthy. If we want to move beyond the struggle, hardships ands restrictions we find in life, we must open our eyes and remember, "All that the Father has is mine and in turn I am blessed to be a blessing to others also."

The Ningxia Wolfberry

Just got done reading a book about the Ningxia Wolfberry which is dubbed the Ultimate Superfood by Gary Young ND, Rondald Larence MD, PhD, March Schreuder.

So what you say? Yeah well..wait until you read about what this Ningxia Wolfberry can do!

It along with four other whole foods helps combat heart disease, Cancer, Chronic Fatigue, Depression, Diabetes and More according to this book.

First of all I want to say none of this information I'm sharing here is my own and all is derived from this book and the scientific studies of many labs and Doctors all referenced in this book.

The Ningxia Wolfberry comes from the China Provenience of Ningxia. In this Provenience there are many Centenarians living there (not only old, but healthy; as in able to still farm their land well past their 100's!). They attribute this to the diet and Ningxia Wolfberry that they eat and drink daily.

Cancer Fighter: Ningxia wolfberry is rich in a number of componunds that have been shown to deactivate carcinogens and protect cellar DNA. some of these include ellagic acid, beta-caryophyllene, and potassium.

Heart Disease- The Ningxia wolfberry may represent the most powerful whole-food natural intervention to reduce the risk of heart disease. It can also slash risk factors for people who already have arteriosclerosis, atherosclerosis, and hypertension.

For hundreds of years, the Ningxia wolfberry has been included in traditional medicinal tonics to remove fat from the blood, lower cholesterol levels, and cut inflammation.
One of many studies: A 1988 report by the State Scientific and Technoligical Commission of chins, reported on a clinical trial of 50 people aged 64-80 who were given 50 grams of wolfberries for 10 days. At the end of the the study, the lipid peroxide levels in their blood dropped by 65%.

Weight Loss- The Ningxia wolfberry is the only superfood known that combines good taste, high fiber, high protein, and low-glycemic index with extraordinary levels of the vital mineral and bioactive compounds needed to jump-start metabolism and renew energy levels.

Depression- The Ningxia wolfberry may be effective in relieving depression and boosting energy due to its rich bioactive nutrients such as thiamin, niacin, and arginine. 180 grams of dried wolfberries contains the same of amount of thiamine used in a University of Wales study to relieve depression and improve mood.

Preserving a Healthy Heart:
Ningxia Wolfberry Research Summary:
* Reduces serum triglycerides and cholesterol by up to 80%
* Reduces inflammation
* Slows oxidative damage to LDL cholesterol
* Lowers Blood Preassure
* Reduces the stickiness of platelets and thickness of blood; may potentiate the action of warfarin and aspirin

Can Improve Immunity and eye sight and a range of other things too long to list here.

I'm totally sold on what the Ningxia Wolfberry can do for my health and everyone else's health.

Look at this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OmV4SNbudBc

Wonderful 45th Birthday



September 24, 2009

My 45th Birthday! Praise God! He is good!!

I had a wonderful time on my birthday.

My beautiful wife and I started out the day looking at a Caddie (for her, not me). LOL
What can I say. I like to buy things for others on my special day, not just myself.
We decided to purchase it and will be getting it home in a few days. I'll post a picture once we have it with more details.

Then we headed out to Lancaster, PA to do some shopping. We made a stop at the Burlington Coat Factory where we bought 3 comforters (one for our daughters future bed, a nice pink/white one) and two for our bed. Bought me nice black Lee Jeans, a nice short brown short sleeve shirt and a shirt for my wife for her Halloween party next month that reads "Bad Kitty". hahaaha She's so much fun!

We got mighty hungry after that and went to a Chinese Buffet called Star Buffet and Grill. I never had such a large amount of Chinese food to choose from in my life! It was all so good with some hot Black Tee to wash it down with. ahhhhhh

After all that food, we just had to walk; so we stopped at a mall and walked at least 8 miles. LOL Well...maybe it wasn't that much walking but it felt like it. It was good though and I found a nice cell phone I wanted and decided to buy it.
A LGRumor2 with a QWERTY Keyboard. I'm not the type of guy that buys the newest cell phone when they come out and I've always wanted one with a QWERTY Keyboard, and so now I have one! (All 100% deductible since I use my cell phone 100% for business in my Great Way To Chat Business. www.greatwaytochat.com ).

Today as I write this being Friday September 25th the day after my Birthday, we continue to celebrate by buying Pizza from Pizza Hut. Love their cheese stuffed crust. I sure don't want to eat this every week, but as a birthday celebration; I'm happy to enjoy it. Spent part of today learning more about my cell phone and how to work all it's features. At least I am back on track in the cell phone world!

Thanks for reading my blog and I really do wish you more Wealth and Riches in YOUR life!

Dance Into the Light Lyrics by Phil Collins

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9B6wST36Bi8


Dance Into the Light Lyrics by Phil Collins

It's there in the eyes of the children
In the faces smiling in the windows
You can come on out, come on open the doors
Brush away the tears of freedom

Now we're here, there's no turning back
We have each other, we have a one voice
Hand in hand, we will lay the tracks
Because, the train is coming to carry you home

Come dance with me
come on and dance into the light
Everybody dance into the light

There'll be no more hiding in the shadows of fear
There'll be no more chains to hold you
The future is yours, you hold the key
And there are no walls with freedom

Now we're here, we won't go back
We are one world, we have a one voice
Side by side we are not afraid
Because, the train is coming to carry you home

Come dance with me
come on and dance into the light
Everybody dance into the light

Do you see the sun? It's a brand new day
Oh, the world's in your hands, now use it
What's past is past, don't turn around
Brush away the cobwebs of freedom

Now we're here, there's no turn back
You have each other, you have a one voice
Hand in hand, you can lay the tracks
Because the train is coming to carry you home

Come dance with me
Come on and dance into the light
Everybody dance into the light
Everybody dance into the light

Then What?

MountainWings A MountainWings Moment
#1274 Wings Over The Mountains of Life
-------------------------------------------------

Then What?
==========

What if you won the lottery?

What if you won a big one, like 100 million or so?

What would you do?

Let's go down the usual list.

Pay off the home (no make that buy a mansion - cash).
Buy several exotic cars
Buy clothes
Travel to exotic places
Hire servants (maids, chefs and chauffeurs)
Take care of relatives (mama at a minimum)
Invest

Then what?

What do you mean "Then What?"
I hear many of you asking, "Isn't that enough?
How can there be a "then what" after all of that?"

You see people; it's the "then what" stuff that makes the real
difference in life. All of the stuff on the above list, you will
get tired of in six months or less. The excitement will wear off.

You will get bored. People will be after you for your money.
You will get paranoid. You will discover relatives that you
didn't know existed or at least you hadn't heard from in years.

They all will want one thing and it won't be your companionship.

So, you will get paranoid, as everyone wants your money.

Then what?

We often make the mistake of assuming that money will solve all
of our problems. Money will only solve money problems.

In my experience in business and in ministry, I usually find
that it's the "other stuff" that's the real problem, not money.
Often the "other stuff" is the reason for the money problems.

Let's start with the list of what you would do if you won a big
lottery and I want to show you how you can live just as happy
(if not happier) without the big lottery win.

Pay off the home (no make that buy a mansion - cash).

A house is NOT a home. Many have houses but not homes.
Many have mansions but not homes.
You can't buy a home, only a house.
A home is made with love, friendship, and loyalty.
You can't buy those either.
But you can get them without a big cash influx.

Buy several exotic cars
I have a fairly fancy car now but it pales in comparison to my
first car. A Corvair. Not a Corvette, a 1966 Corvair.
That was the car Ralph Nader campaigned against because he
thought it was unsafe. I paid $125.00 for it. It leaked a trail
of oil wherever it went. It smoked. It jerked. It might not
get you where you intended to go, but it was mine. It was exotic.
I got more thrill from that Corvair than from my fancy car now.
Exotic is in the mind. Notice the hot graphics on the bus you
are riding? Exotic is in the mind.

Buy clothes
A friend of mind saw Stephen Spielberg in a bookstore.
Spielberg is the big movie producer of many of the all time
great Hollywood movies.

Spielberg is worth hundreds of millions if not billions.

He was dressed in shorts, tennis shoes with no socks, and a
floppy hat. You can afford to look like multi-multi millionaire
Stephen Spielberg. Is that exotic enough for you?

Travel to exotic places
There are still a world of things in my city that I have never
seen. Places that I have never walked. Streets that I have
never driven. People whom I have never met.
So it is with your city. If you are not happy in your city, you
won't find happiness on top of some foreign mountain or in some
posh village.

Hire servants (maids, chefs and chauffeurs)
Invite your little niece or nephew over and pay them a toy to
help you clean up. That will liven up your day.


Take care of relatives (mama at a minimum)
If your parents or grandparents are still alive, I can guarantee
that they want to talk with you more than you talk with them.
Talk costs you nothing but time and you don't have to win the
lottery to have that. They want a little of your time, not a
new house. Take care of them.

Invest
No matter how little (or much) you earn, always put something
aside. I have seen that saving is a habit that's not dependant
on income but on discipline.


The things that you do after the "then what?" will ultimately be
more important than your list if you won 100 million.

If you've understood this,
congratulations on winning the big one.

Are You...?

Are You...?
============

A few years ago a group of salesmen went to a regional sales
convention in Chicago. They had assured their wives that they
would be home in plenty of time for Friday night's dinner.

In their rush, with tickets and briefcases, one of these
salesmen inadvertently kicked over a table which held a display
of apples. Apples flew everywhere. Without stopping or
looking back, they all managed to reach the plane in time for
their nearly missed boarding. All but one.

He paused, took a deep breath, got in touch with his feelings,
and experienced a twinge of compassion for the girl whose apple
stand had been overturned. He told his buddies to go on without
him, waved goodbye, told one of them to call his wife when they
arrived at their home destination and explain his taking a later
flight. Then he returned to the terminal where the apples were
all over the terminal floor. He was glad he did.

The 16 year old girl was totally blind! She was softly crying,
tears running down her cheeks in frustration, and at the same
time helplessly groping for her spilled produce as the crowd
swirled about her, no one topping and no one to care for her
plight.

The salesman knelt on the floor with her, gathered up the
apples, put them back on the table and helped organize her
display.

As he did this, he noticed that many of them had become battered
and bruised; these he set aside in another basket.

When he had finished, he pulled out his wallet and said to the
girl, "Here, please take this $40 for the damage we did. Are
you okay?" She nodded through her tears. He continued on with,
"I hope we didn't spoil your day too badly." As the salesman
started to walk away, the bewildered blind girl called out to
him, "Mister". He paused and turned to look back into those
blind eyes. She continued, "Are you Jesus?"

He stopped in mid-stride, and he wondered. Then slowly he made
his way to catch the later flight with that question burning and
bouncing about in his soul: "Are you Jesus?"

Do people mistake you for Jesus? That's our destiny, is it not?
To be so much like Jesus that people cannot tell the difference
as we live and interact with a world (shopping, working,
reacting to others that are serving us) that is blind to His
love, life and grace.

If we claim to know Him, we should live, walk and act as He
would. Knowing Him is more than simply quoting Scripture and
going to church. It's actually living the Word as life unfolds
day to day.

You are the apple of His eye even though we, too, have been
bruised by a fall. He stopped what He was doing and picked you
and me up on a hill called Calvary and paid in full for our
damaged fruit.

Let us live like we are worth the price He paid.

Check up on your kids without them saying "ohhh mom"

Do you remember being a teen? For the most part, didn't you hate having to check in with mom or dad? It was a pain. But of course now that you are an adult with your own children you know why your mom or dad had you "check in" from time to time when you were away from home.
I'm sure you do that with your kids too right?

If you do, nowadays it's all about cell phones isn't it? There's hardly a person around anymore that does not have a cell phone. Kids still hate to check in or have mom and dad call them to see "if they are "Okay". But we as parents do it out of love, and later they will know that too when they have their own children.

There is a great way now to check up on your kids without "embarrassing them". Texting!
Yeah I know, texting seems like a real pain for most of us parents. Well, that has changed! You can text to your child's cell phone straight from your computer with a simple click of your button. The service is called Chat to Text and once you have the application you can type a message to your child from your keyboard that will be sent to their cell phone in less then 10 seconds!
They then can respond to you by text messaging on their cell phone to your chat window in your computer. The service is very affordable too at only $5.99 a month.
Your kids will love it because they can just text you right back and let you know they are ok and you will love it because now you will have a way to make sure they are Okay without creating a disturbance in what ever they are doing. You will be reaching out to them in a way they are use to communicating with.

Click here to find out more and see an example of how the service works.

A Major Break Out is about to happen!

Yes, it's true! A major break out is about to happen! I'm not talking about a contagious disease though. I'm talking about breaking out of a mediocre life and really start living! Who wants to join me in the most major break out of all time!?

What does mediocre mean?

Mediocre = Average, ordinary, middle of the road, run of the mill, second rate, commonplace.

What am I really talking about? I'm talking about Relationships, Spirituality, Health, and money. Are you ready? Join me in my quest to live a life of abundance! Join me in More Wealth and Riches in your life!

Relationships-
I'll challenge you out of the blue if you join me in this quest. I'll call you or email you, IM you! What ever! I'll ask you "What did you do special for your spouse today? For your kids? I'm talking about living a life on purpose! Not day to day reacting to circumstances, but living with intention in your relationships! Listen, I'm just like you. Sometimes I forget to live a life on purpose. But when I focus my mind on making my relationships THE BEST, then I love surprising my wife! She loves it too. It doesn't even have to cost anything to do something special. I'll give you plenty of idea's, don't worry!

Spirituality-
Yeah, God, life, you, me. What we see with our eyes isn't even half of it! There lots of things going on in the spiritual and when you get into God's spirit a whole new world opens up for you in all areas of your life.
I challenge you! Have you prayed today? I'm not talking about just asking for things. Have you really prayed today? I'll teach you, just as God has taught me through His Holy Word.

Health- Oh yeah, I'm talking about living healthy, not just living long. Who wants to live to a ripe old age when your body can't even keep up with your mind?? Not me!
I want to live as long as the good Lord wants me to with a healthy body, able to do things I want to do. This is a real challenge, and I challenge you too!
Let's loose some weight together and get more fit together too. How about it, isn't it time for a change? I'll help you and you help me too!

Money-

Let's talk about what money's for and how to make more of it in our own lives without becoming a slave to another employer. Let's talk about everything under the sun about money and if you so desire, lets join forces online and make some more money together!

Let me know and we will travel on this great quest together in each area of our lives.

The Basics will make you rich

If people would simply concentrate on taking the time
to work with just a few people and help them, like I am,
then do the same with 3 to 5 more people who also
will work with and understand the concept of sponsoring
just enough to cover their own fees, we would have more
than enough levels of successful "Team" members and
easily make 6 figures plus per year.

Like with CTT, we sponsor 3 who sponsor 3, etc., etc.,
we would be covering the cost of our CTT and making
over $7,000 per month as those below us sponsor only
enough to cover their own monthly fees.

That's over $85,000 per year, just from a $6 program...
IF everyone ONLY gets the basic CTT service. As they
earn more, they can upgrade to the premium services
and earn even more... with the same number of personal
front line members.

fortune, but you DO have to "Learn" how... just as
Warren Buffet did when he started out, one quarter
at a time with pinball machines.

Warren Buffet is now one of the wealthiest men on
planet Earth... because he learned and USED that
power to amass great Wealth and Fortunes.

That SAME power is within YOU TOO!!

Do you want to learn how to harness and unleash it?

you WILL achieve that million dollar plus residual
income.

$1,048,656 per year, to be more precise.

You CAN Have The Power!!

ALLERGIES / SINUS / ASTHMA- A Personal Story by April Travis

I got this story from April's website (http://www.younglivingessentialoils.org/) I hope it helps all that suffer from allergies, sinus problems or allergies.
--------------------------
----------------------
ALLERGIES / SINUS / ASTHMA
My Personal Story~ April Travis

I used to have all kinds of allergies and asthma and was on everything from Seldane, Sudafed, steroid inhalers that caused heart palpitations, dry eyes and mouth and even on a breathing machine (nebulizer) at one point. Now, with the help of these oils, my allergies are almost non-existent and I am continuing to work on it.

If you have never heard of Essential Oils here is a short explanation of what they are. Essential oils are the volatile liquids that are distilled from various parts of plants, including seeds, bark, leaves, stems, roots, flowers and fruit. They are highly concentrated and far more potent than dried herbs.

The essential oils of the plant and the human blood share several common properties: They fight infection, contain hormone-like compounds, and initiate regeneration. Working as the chemical defense mechanism of the plant, essential oils possess potent antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral properties. The molecules of essential oils are also relatively small, giving them the ability to easily penetrate the cells. When topically applied to the feet or elsewhere, essential oils can travel throughout the body in a matter of minutes.

Young Living is the firmly established leader in the Essential Oils Industry. It is the only company of it's kind that grows from seed, harvests in greenhouses, distills and packages to make sure that there are no pesticides or chemicals of any kind in the product so you are getting Grade A Pure Organic Essential Oils. If you look at other oils in health food stores, they are only perfume quality and not Therapeutic (medicine)...Tip: They must be Afnor / Iso approved oils)

Here's what I did: (NOTE: THIS HAS SAVED ME THOUSANDS OF $$ ON ALLERGY MEDICATIONS, ALLERGY SHOTS & IN THE PAST, MISSED TIME FROM WORK. NEEDLESS TO SAY, NO MORE SIDE EFFECTS FROM THOSE HORRIBLE DRUGS AND OVER THE COUNTER MEDS!)

Got a Young Living diffuser and diffused "Purification Oil" into a room with the door closed for 20 minutes a day while you are relaxing in the room. This is for the chronic cough. Any molds and allergy causing bacteria in the air cannot live in the presence of this oil.

Got "R. C." Oil and put 2-3 drops in my hands. Rub them together, cup over nose and inhale 3 times deep. Also put 2 drops on chest and throat. This is a blend of (4) different kinds of eucalyptus and other oils. This is incredible for breaking up mucus, in the head, the lungs and anywhere else it builds up. This is the one that stops me from wheezing and coughing and lets me breathe so much better.

You can also get "Peppermint". If you ever get stopped up and can't breathe thru your nose, you'll love this one. My husband puts 1 drop on his tongue and in then inhales it in. Then with the oil still on his fingers he rubs a little on the end of his nostrils and inhales again. He can breathe in 1 second after putting it on.

One more oil you should know about is "Lavender". Not only is it called Natures antihistamine, but it great for depression. It lifts me up in 3 seconds...When my nose won't stop dripping, it drys me up right away.

Something I really realized while yesterday driving home. I was able to roll my windows down while on the road and smell the wonderful smell of fresh cut grass. Something I was never able to do all my life with allergies. If I did this in the past, I'd sneeze probably 20 times in a row and then be a wreck for several hours.

Since using Young Living Products: cleansing, oiling, supplementing and eating a good diet over the last 4 years, something worked! I can honestly say I AM ALLERGY FREE...and in Texas, where there are trees, molds, dust, grasses, hay, etc.!!! I would have never believed it!

I try to eat as healthy as I can - no sugar, no white flour, no dairy, organic vegetables, hormone free chicken, little meat, no coffee or pop, no white bread, no processed foods, and also no chemicals in the household products or personal care products. I believe this has all helped.

Recently, 5/2002, Ive begun ingesting Eucalyptus Radiata and R. C. blend before bed and for the first time in my life, I am able to sleep with a cat on my bed and still breathe well; no wheezing or sneezing. WHAT A MIRACLE!!!!!!!!!!!! I thought Id never be able to have furry pets.

At this point in time, my Young Living monthly check pays for all of both Marks and my products, and we use everything from toothpaste to the RainSpa Shower head. We are saving $$$ on our grocery bills and medical bills by substituting healthy from Young Living for chemical laden items found at the grocery store; and it gets delivered to our door. What a wonderful blessing this has been for us!

UPDATE, 2/2003: We have now added a puppy to our family.

Since all allergies happen because of poor digestion and a weak immune system, I started by working on those body systems. Products I use for allergies, sinus & asthma:

Internally:
Cleansing Trio Kit
Vitagreen supplement
Sulfurzyme Powder (a must have) NOTE: Also available in capsule form.

Externally:
R.C. Oil Blend
Purification Oil Blend
Peppermint Oil
Lavender Oil
Diffuser
