An Interesting Take On Mindfulness

Today when I visited one of my favorite sources of information, Tiffany Lambert’s Blog, I was bowled over by the outstanding article she wrote on the subject of mindfulness.

She starts out with:

Hi everyone! Recently, “mindfulness” has become a trend everywhere – the military uses it, executives are using it, men and women – top leaders everywhere are being more “mindful” to succeed.

Mindful thinking is being used to train soldiers – it’s no longer about brute force.
Corporations have meditation rooms.

And let me be horribly honest here – I have ALWAYS rolled my eyes and thought, “Yeah right” whenever anyone mentioned meditation or mindfulness to me prior to last year.

But man, when smiling and steeling myself against chaos didn’t work – I had nothing BUT mindfulness to get me through it. And thank goodness I wasn’t too stubborn not to try it.

Then she gets into the ways mindfulness helped her overcome the tough
times she went through and how it can help any one of us get over seemingly
overwhelming obstacles … if we can look at how mindful thinking resembles
the basic steps for breaking a horse …

It’s a very good read: Go to Tiffany Lambert’s Blog

Two Interesting Posts About Finding Online Information

In my email this morning, I found online information at the center of two interesting posts I want to share.

1. Under Guest Appearances at Firepole Marketing
Sid says:
There is an immeasurable amount of information literally at our fingertips.
We can learn anything online.
I’ll say that again, because it’s hard to grasp the enormity of that concept.
Seriously, right now, you can learn ANYTHING.

Think of anything you wish you could do, and you can find a little to a lot of information about it online. Now more than ever before, we have an incredible opportunity to learn and grow in expansive ways.

So why don’t we?

Why We Don’t Take Action on Our Ideas or Desires

“I’m too busy.” “Yeah, but my situation is different.” “I don’t know where to start.”

The real reason behind all of those excuses is that it’s scary. And overwhelming. It’s much easier to cover up with an excuse than to figure it out on your own.

2. The Business Success Cafe is…the Perfect Coffee Break for Busy Business Owners: Only 20 Minutes – and It’s Free!

Cathy Demers says: One Day Only! Read Carefully…

My son-in-law was here for a mid-week visit not long ago. About 11 am I popped out of my office (still in my work uniform – my pj’s) to have a brief chat with him between phone meetings. He said “I want to do what you do…have a successful online business so I can have a life like yours!”

I smiled and told him “It’s not that hard…once you learn what to do…and then focus on doing it!”

That’s why if you missed the Cafe last week….

I want to introduce you to my friend Kevin Thompson has agreed to take you on a guided behind-the-scenes tour of the automated business that’s been putting more than $10,000.00 a month into his bank account every month since the year 2000… even to this very day!

Kevin owns an extremely successful online business – and so do I – That’s why you and I are communicating right now.

Kevin is absolutely brilliant at showing you how to have a massively profitable automated business… just like the ones we both have.

His “behind the scenes tour” is tomorrow. Don’t Miss It!!
