I really like this post by Steve Pavlina that I wanted to share it here with you. Enjoy!

One of the most potent lessons I’ve ever learned (and would love to impart to you) is just how powerful a seemingly simple perspective shift can be.

Dr. Wayne Dyer says, “When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.” I hope you realize just how profound that statement is. But just in case you don’t, let me share a personal story about it.

During my first 5 years in business (1994-1998), I lost money every year, turning my $20K life savings into $150K of debt. That’s a net loss of $170K, or $34K per year on average. In 1999 I finally went bankrupt when my credit ran out.

Every year since then, my business made a decent profit.

So I suffered a negative cashflow each year from 1994-1998, and then from 1999 – present (12 years in a row and counting), I enjoyed a positive cashflow each year.

What the heck happened in 1999? What was responsible for this major change in results? [click to continue…]

October 1, 2010

I just bought a new mobile phone for myself. No, this is not a reward but my old phone is not working well. The problem is the other party can’t hear me at all or the line is noisy. If not due to the problems, I would have not bought this new one. Come to [...]
