The Dalai Lama was asked what surprised him most

From my friend Andrea Smart’s Facebook page.

I just had to share this!

The Dalai Lama was asked what surprised him most, he said “Man.
Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money.
Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health.
And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.”

That is magic!



Bigger, Brighter, Bolder

This article below is By Brian P Lewis and appears at

Its a perspective on teaching that occurred to me in the opposite way:
when I teach I learn.

It is the change in position and perspective  from which you listen, see, smell, taste, touch and discuss with yourself.

  • For starters the words flow out from you to external listeners and not inside to yourself.
  • Your tonality is probably different and you need to emphasise differently so that you talk into someone else’s listening.
  • Your body posture is active or different when you talk externally and your awareness is on both internal and external elements – Visual, Auditory, Kinaesthetic, Olfactory and even Gustatory

All in in all your senses are more actively engaged and the reality you experience is that much bigger. Therefore the experience richer!

As I have heard so many times, from Paul McKenna and many others in the NLP fraternity:  “Bigger, Brighter, Bolder”

Have a Big, Bright and Bold day and see, hear, smell, taste and touch what you learn, because you did

Second Chance


“I decided to give him a second chance, but the second chance didn’t work”

I expect that the voting public understand that implicitly since most PMs seem to stay longer than one term

The Time of Your Life

From Vicki Wusche’s Facebook page

An old man once said:
“There comes a time in your life, when you walk away from all the drama and the people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right, pray for the ones who don’t. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is a part of life, getting back up is living.”
~ Re-post if you agree

These little gems always come when we need them. Notice that is true.

At the recent National Achievers’ Congress, in London, Anthony Robbins talked about how he distanced himself from negativity and negative people.
So, I guess, what he is alluding to is wisdom.

Wisdom comes with experience: “falling down”
Experience comes with age: “the time in your life”

For me the objective has to be:

How soon can we get wise?

Old beat up car


A woman was driving her old beat up car on the highway with her 7-year old son, Little Johnny.

She tried to keep up with traffic but they were flying by her.
After getting caught in a large group of car’s flying down the road she looked at her speedometer to see she is doing 15 miles over the speed limit.

Slowing down she moved over to the side and got out of the line of cars.
She looked up and saw the flashing lights of a police car.

Pulling over she waited for the officer to come up to her car. As he did he said, “Ma’am do you know why I pulled you over?”

Little Johnny piped up from the back seat, “I do! — Because you couldn’t catch the other cars”

Being Amazed

CaptureLife is just amazing! Out of the grey clouds comes the bluest brightest sky I’ve ever seen, and there are only songs in my heart right now
Come and celebrate life!

It is not how we feel it is how we BE that creates how we feel.
Anthony Robbins tell how motion drives our eMOTION and Landmark Education tell how satisfACTION requires action

BEing in action (motion) , like my friend Billy Yan Pound, creates the emotion that he enjoys and redistributes to the world.

Be out there and enjoy!
