    Posted on 5/13/2013 6:49:53 AM

    You become who you drink coffee with
    Associate only with positive, focused people whom you can learn from and who will not drain your valuable energy with complaining and uninspiring attitudes.  By developing positive relationships, you will have plenty of company on your path to the top of whatever mountain you seek to climb.

    Do something each day to improve yourself and your life
    Remember that even a daily enhancement of only 1% will lead to a 30% improvement just four weeks from today.  Make a point of doing one samll thing daily that will add value.

    Forgiveness is a virtue that is most important to maintain peace of mind
    Practice forgiveness especially in those situations where it is seemingly difficult.  By using your emotional forgiveness muscles more regularly, petty wrongs and remarks will not touch you and nothing will penetrate your concentrated, serene mindset.  But don't just forgive, you have to forget as this is where the power lies.

    An excellent visualiztion technique
    If you are worrying about something, picture the words of your worry on a piece of paper.  Now ignite a match to the paper and watch the worry dissipate into flames.  Bruce Lee, the great martial arts master, employed this mental control device regularly.  It he could do it, why not give it a try.

    Get into the habit of breakfast meetings
    An early meal to touch base with a friend or business associate is a mot pleasant way to start the day and allow you to maintain your contact in the face of a busy schedule.

    Once every few weeks, leave your watch at home
    In this society we often become bound to the clock and soon it governs our every action like a rigid taskmaster.  Go through the day doing precisely what you wish to do and for however long you wish to do it.  Spend time with that special person without having to run off to your next appointment.  Savour the moments and focus on what is truly important rather than those mundane things that somehow take on a greater importance than they really deserve.  Lose the clock an gain some quality time.
