A Sweeter Fruit

"Fruits tastes sweeter when it is grown from your own garden"

Just something that I thought of. Whatever the challenges I have about work and things that I do, somehow, when I put that extra work, that extra time to it, the results would not be as satisfying if I were to be working on my own business or passion.

I would imagine the satisfaction of the completion would be accompanied with a smile instead of a relief.

A Millionaire Mind Blowing Weekend

For the last 3 days I attended a program called Millionaire Mindset Intensive by T Harv Eker, author of the best seller "The Secrets of Millionaire Mind".

The program was Intensive, Compact, High-Energy filled with Practical tools and inspiring.

I was first introduced to T.Harv Eker, from a friend of mine who recommended me to his website, which leads me to the book and his teleseminar at 4am in the morning (Singapore Time).

Truth to be told, he and his co-presenter Rob Riopel is an amazing duo over the weekend. Estimated 4000 people attended and had great learning and fun. Coming from another friend of mine who attended the same program in LA 3 years back, she said the materials, program has improved and she did not regret attending again as refresher after 3 years.

I eventually bought 10 copies of his books which comes with 2 tickets to his next program in Malaysia/Singapore 2008. So for those who would like a copy of this book, you are welcome to contact me. It is a definite must for those who would like to move forward with their success.

Just give Marketers a Blow Horn

Majority of marketers just want eyeballs count on the ads, advertisement and message that they put out. Their objective is to make the products desirable. Period.

The keyword here is 'Eyeball'. If there exist a magic Blow Horn where every message that comes out of it will reach every ear or eyes on the planet, every marketer would want one.

YouTube, the number of people uploading and watching videos on YouTube... Whoaa... a very large number. Everyone is there, we should be there too.

Facebook, Microsoft just bought Facebook and the number of people using Facebook is increasing by the second worldwide! Whoaa... a very large number. We should be there too.

The question is,
1. Which category is mostly viewed on YouTube?
2. Why are people using Facebook for? Business or Social?

If your products is not meant for any of these groups, you are wasting time. (Since both are free, there is no money involved here)

The problem is, most marketers do not understand technology and what it can do for them. They just want their message to be on everything and everywhere. Magic Blow Horn. Being everywhere would devalue the brand.

Do they care who is listening? Hmm...

The power of technology allows marketer to create a desirable product tailored to that market, to the individual. But all I see from lazy marketers with "Magic" Blow Horn, same message for everybody! Be it their members, customer, website visitors or referral.

What is love?

I received this in my inbox. It is so pure the meaning of love to a child.

What Love means to a 4-8 year old . . Slow down for three minutes to read this. It is so worth it. Touching words from the mouth of babes. A group of professional people posed this question to a group of 4 to 8 year-olds, "What does love mean?"

The answers they got were broader and deeper than anyone could have imagined. See what you think:

"When my grandmother got arthritis, she couldn't bend over and paint her toenails anymore.
So my grandfather does it for her all the time, even when his hands got arthritis too. That's love."

Rebecca- age 8

"When someone loves you, the way they say your name is different.
You just know that your name is safe in their mouth."

Billy - age 4

"Love is when a girl puts on perfume and a boy puts on shaving cologne and they go out and smell each other."
Karl - age 5

"Love is when you go out to eat and give somebody most of your French fries without making them give you any of theirs."
Chrissy - age 6

"Love is what makes you smile when you're tired."
Terri - age 4

"Love is when my mommy makes coffee for my daddy and she takes a sip before giving it to him, to make sure the taste is OK."

Danny - age 7

"Love is when you kiss all the time. Then when you get tired of kissing, you still want to be together and you talk more.
My Mommy and Daddy are like that. They look gross when they kiss"

Emily - age 8

"Love is what's in the room with you at Christmas if you stop opening presents and listen."
Bobby - age 7

"If you want to learn to love better, you should start with a friend who you hate,"

Nikka - age 6

"Love is when you tell a guy you like his shirt, then he wears it everyday."

Noelle - age 7

"Love is like a little old woman and a little old man who are still friends even after they know each other so well."

Tommy - age 6

"During my piano recital, I was on a stage and I was scared. I looked at all the people watching me and saw my daddy waving and smiling.

He was the only one doing that. I wasn't scared anymore."

Cindy - age 8

"My mommy loves me more than anybody
You don't see anyone else kissing me to sleep at night."

Clare - age 6

"Love is when Mommy gives Daddy the best piece of chicken."

Elaine-age 5

"Love is when Mommy sees Daddy smelly and sweaty and still says he is handsomer than Robert Redford."

Chris - age 7

"Love is when your puppy licks your face even after you left him alone all day."

Mary Ann - age 4

"I know my older sister loves me because she gives me all her old clothes and has to go out and buy new ones."

Lauren - age 4

"When you love somebody, your eyelashes go up and down and little stars come out of you."

Karen - age 7

"Love is when Mommy sees Daddy on the toilet and she doesn't think it's gross."

Mark - age 6

"You really shouldn't say 'I love you' unless you mean it. But if you mean it, you should say it a lot. People forget."

Jessica - age 8

And the final one -- Author and lecturer Leo Buscaglia once talked about a contest he was asked to judge.

The purpose of the contest was to find the most caring child.

The winner was a four year old child whose next door neighbor was an elderly gentleman who had recently lost his wife.

Upon seeing the man cry, the little boy went into the old gentleman's yard, climbed onto his lap, and just sat there.

When his Mother asked what he had said to the neighbor, the little boy said,

"Nothing, I just helped him cry"

When there is nothing left but God, that is when you find out that God is all you need. Take 60 seconds and give this a shot! All you do is simply say the following small prayer for the person who sent you this.

Heavenly Father, please bless all my friends in whatever it is that You know they may be needing this day! And may their life be full of Your peace, prosperity and power as he/she seeks to have a closer relationship with You. Amen.

Then send it on to five other people, including the one who sent it to you. Within hours you caused a multitude of people to pray for other people. Then sit back and watch the power of God work in your life.

P. S. Five is good, but more is better.
