I don’t know how many of you are dog lovers, but I certainly am! For the many years, my daughter, Esther, and I have “co-owned” a four-pound miniature Yorkie. Her name was Bebe, and she was one of the loves of my life. We lost Bebe a while back due to illness and old age. It broke my heart. It was weeks before I could even speak about it in public because it hurt so badly to lose her. It was a painful experience. Someone once wisely commented, “A dog has friends because they wag their tail and not their tongue.” I believe that is true!

Tip of the weekTip of the Week

Have you ever had something happen in your life and you just could not let it go? It might have been a situation involving money, or another family relationship, or one in which you were holding a grudge.

Tip of the weekTip of the Week

I am a simple-minded person. If something is presented to me in a way that is clear and easy to understand, I catch on quickly. In fact, I will be able to do a seminar on it! However, if a new concept is not presented in a simple-to-understand way, the opposite is true. I find myself confused and frustrated.

Tip: Re-evaluate your mountaintop experience

Tip of the weekTip of the Week

Most of us have had some type of “mountaintop experience” during our lifetime. Perhaps it was getting our driver’s license at the age of sixteen. It could have been graduating from college and then stepping into a dream job. Maybe it was getting married or having children. In any case, whenever something really wonderful happens to us, our excitement causes us to view it as one of life’s “mountaintop experiences”.

Tip of the weekTip of the Week

This Tip requires a lot of concentration for all who hear it. It is one of the most difficult concepts I have ever learned in my life. The first time I heard it, I immediately began to feel defensive. I tried to think of all the reasons why it was wrong. I thought to myself, “That cannot be right!

Keep reading with an open heart and mind.

Tip: Let go of fear!

Tip of the weekTip of the Week

Each week when I write these Tips, I try to write them from a position of substance and reality. I have learned that if I share with other people what I am currently learning myself, it will make a far greater impact on them.

In other words, experience will always trump theory, in my humble opinion.
