How I Made $10,000 In One Day By Swimming Underwater!
"Without health, life is not life; it is only a state of languor and suffering," Rabelais
If you want to be wealthy, it's best to get healthy. A salubrious lifestyle is worth the effort.
Here's the wisdom:
You need good health to think clearly, act intelligently, and schmooze diligently.
Usually, the wealthiest people are entrepreneurs. This endeavor to create everything from scratch takes an enormous toll on your health. And if you're not looking after your health, you're sabotaging your progress.
It works the same for employees, though. The more sick days you have, the fewer days you get paid.
Sometimes, however, when you're very healthy, magic happens.
Many years ago, when I lived in Florida, I worked as a retail clerk in the Orlando Mall. I sold luggage for Burdines, a department store.
One day, I found this great book about the benefit of underground swimming for the heart and lungs. Since I had a huge pool in the apartment complex I lived in, I enthusiastically began to train myself to swim underwater. I got so good at it that I could do two whole laps underwater. I developed an enviable robustness, stamina, and strength.
After about a month at my new sport, our store had a big sale. During that sale, I was so energized, so full of vitality and good cheer, that at the end of the day I had done $10,000 in sales. This was unheard of for a single department, run by a single person, for one day.
My department manager awarded me a fluffy green beach towel! (I still have it with me.)
How did my sales skills shoot up to such an astonishing level? Quite simply, I had accidentally learned how to breathe deeper and fuller and my body was in a state of vibrant energy.
Good health spills over into every aspect of life. Your relationship with yourself improves. Your relationship with others improves. And your work in the world, whatever it is, takes a quantum leap.
We take our health for granted until we lose it. We need to guard our health more than our money, for when we are healthy, the money follows.
It's easy to acquire health information on how to make your brain sharper, your lungs clearer, and your muscles more able. The bane of most people, a heavy, tired body will not be yours if you choose a healthy lifestyle of nutritious food, exercise, deep relaxation and experiencing the great outdoors.

Joy in Perseverance
I will persist until I succeed. Always will I take another step. If that is of no avail I will take another, and yet another. In truth, one step at a time is not too difficult... I know that small attempts, repeated, will complete any undertaking. ~ Og Mandino

Spirits Language: How to Tell Whos Who in Your Inner Conversations
Your Spirit is continuously beaming communications to you. As long as your mind is properly receptive to your Spirit, this vital communication is received. But if your mind is busy being distracted by its fascination with the world that serves the ego, or by the fear-based broadcasts of the lower self, the communications are not received-or the signals are fuzzy at best. Like a radio broadcast that takes place regardless of who is listening, your Spirit is constantly broadcasting to you, but you can only receive that broadcast if your radio is tuned to the right station and you are paying attention.

Personal Fear of Change and How to Change It!
It's interesting how we intellectually know that tomorrow will be different from yesterday, or even different from today. We know this based on experience. Wasn't it only yesterday computers started appearing on people's office desks? And now today, some of those people who cursed the wretched new things, rage when theirs or anyone else's computer is down! Tomorrow will not be the same as yesterday. We know it. And yet, many of us go through change and feel battle fatigue, look worn out, whine loudly.

Worship and Football: Lets Take Another Look
At a recent seminar we were asked to imagine if some football commentators were giving advice to churches about how to increase their attendance. They might suggest the following:
Moral Obligation & Responsibility
Chances are you have seen some type of disturbance in your lifetime. Whether it was a bully picking on someone or a piece of trash on the ground, disturbances happen daily on several different levels. Some people address them and others wait or assume someone else will handle the situation.
The Essence Of Freedom
Life is too hard and too risky in the eyes of many. By contrast, others are such proponents of a virile existence, demanding great courage and giving great pride, that they are ready to leave the coziness of their home to scale Mount Everest and breast the elements for the sheer joy of conquering the summit. Whatever the perspective, the nature of things remains unchanged. There are rules, necessities and duties, and limits, possibilities and impossibilities. Until doom, one can accept them and make the best of them, much to one's pleasure and honor, or one can do the opposite and suffer the consequences. The choice between these two options is the very essence of freedom. Personally, I have no use for the second option: a self-inflicted misery that is without the slightest doubt a pitiable way of life.
