Prosperity: The Choice Is Yours
April 24, 2004
I'm not old.........chronologically challenged perhaps, but not old.
Actually I'm doing pretty darn good for my age, I'll turn 50 here in a couple of
months. Most of the time I've got more energy than a lot of folks half my age.
I'm very thankful for the great health I do have and for what I've been able to
learn to help me stay healthy.
If you'd like to see what has helped me have so much energy, take a look here
Your Health is Important
Even if I knew that tomorrow the world would go to pieces, I would still plant
my apple tree.

Are Your Sometimes Frustrated?
By: Mike Brescia
Often the most frustrating thing that any of us feel on a
regular basis is to want something really bad, and not be
able to get it right away.
Yes, it's frustrating. But it's usually not realistic, is
The challenge that we face is that advertisers want us to
get motivated to buy their products immediately. But if
you have limitations of one sort or another, like... you
don't have a space to park a 50 foot yacht, or simply no
money, then you're not going to be able to buy this thing.
And it's not just products, is it? Many people see someone
else with some personal trait or a job they want and they
They want it, too... NOW!
It's getting so that it's increasingly rare to find people
who are truly willing to put in the requisite time
necessary to get the traits or items they want. Our world
today is trying to teach us that we must get what we want
immediately; that it's our right. And that's why so many
of us are jealous, smoke or drink, are overweight, use
It's your right, all right.
It's your right to have the same opportunity to work for
what you want. You have to sacrifice to reach your dreams
just like every other person who ever lived, who reached
the same kinds of ambitions.
Today MUST be the day that puts you on, or keeps you on,
the road to attaining what you want. Remember, God helps
those who help themselves.
Many days don't afford us the time to push certain things
forward, it's true. For example, if you're traveling and
you use that as an excuse to not eat right and to not
exercise, then you probably won't do it even when it's more
Life is NOT like school.
In school, you can trick yourself into thinking you're
doing great if you cram for exams and get decent scores.
It is possible to get fairly good grades for a while that
But you don't learn it. You're likely to just remember it
until the exam is over... maybe.
That's why new college graduates often find it difficult
to find a decent paying job. Companies like successful
work experience. In college, you can fool the system and
yourself. In the professional world and in most other
areas of life, it's a lot tougher. Almost impossible.
Real life is truly like a farm.
On the farm, you must move the rocks, buy seeds and all
the other stuff, plant the seeds, buy and maintain the
equipment, pull weeds, keep the pests away, water the
crops, buy and sell the animals, feed them, nurse the sick
ones back to health, fertilize, etc. And you need to keep
up with it all everyday...
Or you won't have a crop at the end of the season.
Life is like this, too. Just like a farm, you can't
"cram" in life. Don't be fooled. Don't believe the lies
that others want you to believe. You want to believe it.
I know you do. But think.
The people who have the things you want earned them. And
don't believe they just got lucky. Luck takes work.
Put the effort in today and you'll get luckier and
luckier. Will it be immediately? Probably not.
Beat this into your head... Anything worth having takes
time to get it.
When I'm tempted to believe that I should have something
(before I've earned it), I think of my grandparents.
They owned a farm.
And I realize that life can be long and that I can't put
tomorrow before today.
Then I look at my goal, put my shoulder down and keep
With a smile on my face.

Nothing Is Impossible To A Willing Heart
You can do anything in this world you want to do, but you
must want to do it badly enough.
You really can have everything you want, if you go after it.
You have to want it.
The first ingredient of success is desire.
Do you know what you want?
Your desire is the planting of your seed.
Your desire for success must be so strong within you that
it's the very breath of your life.
It must be your first thought when you wake in the morning,
and your last thought when you go to bed at night.
You can be whatever you make up your mind to be.
What's in your mind is all that counts.
