Thinking about Making Purchases? Beware of the following mistakes I have made.

 

Your life is a learning process – you can only become wiser from learning. Sometimes you might have to attract making a painful mistake to learn something important, but after the mistake you have far greater wisdom. Wisdom cannot be bought with money – it can only be acquired through living life. With wisdom comes: strength, courage, knowing, and an ever-increasing peace. May the joy be with you, Rhonda Byrne

 

Thinking about Making Purchases? Beware of the following mistakes I have made.

When one has to be careful of what is and has been made available, for us! The world over! No matter what you intend to purchase, use of hope to benefit from, read and be a more careful person than I have been, no matter one’s age or experiences in life. I hope you will benefit even though I have decided to do this now rather late, and embarrassed.

I am sending this message out via my blog to all readers and hope you will benefit from my mistakes and trust in what is and has been made available to all of us. I maybe putting myself on the line, but do not care, just beware!

1) I made a purchase of time share when I was in the armed forces, after a while I did not use them and tried to get my money back, silly; I know and failed. Now even today I get companies trying to sell them for me or even buy more!! (I am on the Telephone Preference Service! Otherwise known as the TPS system, that is not very good either)

2) I then made another mistake by purchasing a holiday home come share in a company that failed me and refused to return money spent (over £20,000) I could not use this set up for a while due to injuries while serving in the armed forces, that constantly needed repairing. After 2 years of No Holidays and having to pay the annual “Management Fee” of £800.00 I gave up under the threat of going to court for not paying the annual fee anymore! Even though they owed me 3 years holidays as I had paid them! Mistake was giving in but after the previous error I did make the mistake of just sending the certificate back instead of taking them to court myself!! A lot of money lost and faith in humanity!!! So do not even consider this company (even now I realise the prices are to the extreme) it is “Club Lacosta” they run apartments worldwide with the banking system in the channel Islands so escape our tax and Laws in the UK, (not that the government is concerned regards Support for errors and false companies). Never, Never buy from them, no matter what they say and offer! One company did make a promise to help and failed, perhaps they managed to retrieve my money and kept it, who knows as I never heard from them again..

3) The Daily Mail and Sunday mail news paper. Two months ago I found a what I thought was a great advert, often via the club site where one puts in the codes from the back of the paper to get points and eventually savings, ok! The advert was for face creams, I thought my wife would like and those were a payment offer but one hopes of value! I paid a little over £23.00 for them by (first mistake) filling in the form with bank details… Never again!! But the purchase came with other offers “Samples” No mention of a time or pay up, if there was it was in the smallest print ever! Then my new bank made payments of 2 lots of £ 80.00+ and still no “Other products appeared” I complained to the bank with the threat of legal action and there fraud department actually gave me the phone numbers of the THREE Companies that they know of, and they are at number “4” The fraud department seems not to take action about these companies either, do they really care about their customers? (2 months later they refunded those payments) But it came to light via an earlier text asking if I had agreed to the following payment (of course not) this was to a company under the name of: (remember I paid one company yet these crooks seem to work out of the same office, they must be!!The worst of this is that the press did not care and blamed the one company provider, this ended up with the following companies that ripped me off: Remember the advert did not say the companies names and the paper work does not match.

4) The one my bank checked on and cancelled was (via a text) “MAS* ELLEDERMA.COM” Why did they not stop the others? the others that ripped me off are: Stemalogica, Beauty & Truth. The paper work has nothing to do with the one paid for and no mention of a high price (each on expected over £90.00) for products one can get better products from shopping around. We now use local stores as before and very satisfied with the products. I have learned to stay away from one advert!  I am sure Ellederma products are available locally to you and I do know they are good but not purchased by this route. The others I have no idea of or about.

5) I now await some replies from these people and companies; you may be visiting me in prison. (If they dare, especially those that owe me money or products) Just be very careful of adverts.

6) I will let you know which prison I may be in, if a computer is available.. Good bye and beware.  Yes I am annoyed but partially my own fault for being naive? or too honest.

Positive & Negative Thoughts

 

A little something from my collection of famous and not so famous peoples quotes, although many have no names or tittles of who wrote them; it matters not but thank them any way as all have great meanings and thoughts for us all to learn from and use in our daily lives, enjoy!

"Remember, the thoughts that you think and the statements you make regarding yourself determine your mental attitude. If you have a worthwhile objective, find the one reason why you can achieve it rather than hundreds of reasons why you can’t." Napoleon Hill

Start each new day with a commitment to do what’s right – regardless of what may come your way. — Eric Harvey and Steve Ventura

 If you repeat something over and over to yourself, your subconscious mind will eventually begin to accept it as fact. When something has been accepted as truth by your subconscious mind, it will work overtime to transform the idea into physical reality. You can take advantage of this by programming your mind to think positive thoughts. Use self-motivators or affirmations to persuade your subconscious that you are capable of doing anything you wish. Repeat the self-motivator several times a day until it becomes an automatic reaction to recall a positive phrase whenever you begin to doubt yourself. Replace “I can’t” with “I will!”

  Positive & Negative thoughts:

Your thoughts are both the words you hear in your head and the words you speak out loud. When you say to somebody, “What a beautiful day” you had the thought first and then spoke the words.  Your thoughts also become your actions.

When you get out of bed in the morning, you had the thought of getting out of bed before you took action.  You can’t take any action without thinking the thought first.  It’s your thoughts that determine whether your words and actions will be positive or negative.  But how do you know your thoughts are positive or negative?  Your thoughts are positive when you think of what you want and love!  And negative thoughts are what you don’t want and don’t love.  It is that simple and that easy.  There is no other way to take this but it is true!!  

What ever you want in your life, you want it because you love it.  Now take a moment and think about it.  You do not want things you do not love, or do you?  Every person only want’s what they love; no body want what they done love. 

When you think or talk about things you want and love, like “I love those shoes” they are just what I want, your thoughts are positive and they will come back to you as the things you love-beautiful shoes!!  hen you think and talk about the things you do not want or love, like “look at the price of those shoes, that is high way robbery”  Your thoughts are now negative and negative thoughts will come back to you that you do not love them as they are too expensive!! 

Most people think and talk about the things they do not love more than they think and talk about what they love, why?  Because they give out more negative thoughts than love thus depriving themselves of all the good things in life!  it is that simple.  

It is impossible to have a great life without love.  Because People who have great  lives think and talk about what they love more than what they do not love!  People who are struggling think and talk about what they do not love more than what they do love, even a pair of shoes!  

“One word frees us of all the weight and pain of life.  The word is love”   Sophocles  (496-406 BC)  

There is no doubt that when using the law of attraction for the good of everyone, you are connecting yourself to great power. However, the law is also available to you individually so that you may live your life to the fullest. When you live your life to the fullest you have so much more to give others.                                       Your pain and misery does not help the world. But your joy and your life lived fully uplifts the world. May the joy be with you, Rhonda Byrne

 

I enjoy writing these passages for I learn every day even now I never stop or give up, do you?

From The Secret Daily Teachings

The fastest way to receive is to give, because giving starts the reciprocal action of receiving. We all receive according to how much we give. Give the best of you everywhere you go .

Give a smile. Give thanks. Give kindness. Give love.

  Your giving should be a giving without expectation of return – a giving for the sheer joy of it. 

May the joy be with you, Rhonda Byrne

If I could share 500 words of wisdom to summarize what I’ve learned so far in life, these are the important things I’d want to pass along to others…

Make the most out of every day; you are not going to get a do-over. When you look in the mirror, there is the CEO of your life. It’s not your boss, spouse, friends, and parents–it’s you. So ultimately we have no one to blame for our mistakes, failures, and shortcomings other than ourselves.

At some point, we all experience hardships and personal catastrophes. You can keep moving forward if you decide to do so.

Pick a career that centers on work you enjoy. Then it becomes play instead of work. On average you are going to work for 60 or 70 years, so do things that really excite you. You will then naturally use your innate talents to the fullest. Every endeavor and career has hard times and challenges. Learn to hang in there, persist, and be determined.

It’s useful to have goals that you write down, measure and revise over time. Segment your life into easily definable components like: family; career; education; professional development; religious activity; social; community service; financial; and physical activity. Make sure that you invest sufficient time and effort in each to make yourself a rounded person. The Greeks had it right: balance is the key to a good life.

Family is naturally the most important human relationship. Find a life partner who you connect with on multiple levels. I’ve been lucky to have such a relationship for three decades. Your spouse and a healthy relationship are the most important factors in raising children who become fully functioning adults. The goal there is to get them to adulthood as confident, competent, and independent adults who have roots and wings.

Sir Isaac Newton said, "I stand on the shoulders of giants." Certainly I feel the same. My parents, siblings, friends, teachers, and business colleagues all have combined to encourage me to use may talents to the fullest. Early on, I decided that studying successful role models and trying to copy them for myself was vastly superior to going at it alone or studying failure. Ask yourself: Whose shoulders do I stand on? And, who stands on yours?

For me, the most positive, uplifting and realistic philosophy and approach to life is Christianity. Have you ever been to a funeral, looked at the grave, and felt the hopelessness and powerlessness of our human condition? I say make Blaise Pascal’s wager. It posits that there’s more to be gained from wagering on the existence of God than from choosing atheism, and that a rational person should live as though God exists, even though the truth of the matter cannot actually be known until you die.

In conclusion, your life can be an awesome experience, but bear in mind it’s a do-it-yourself project.

How to stay Motivated

"Set a goal to achieve something that is so big, so exhilarating that it excites you and scares you at the same time. It must be a goal that is so appealing, so much in line with your spiritual core, that you can’t get it out of your mind. If you do not get chills when you set a goal, your not setting big enough goals." Bob Proctor

These Top 10 ways to stay motivated are a must, but can you stick to them?

"Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it." Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

1)  Plan ahead                                                                                          It stands to reason that you are much more likely to reach your goals if you plan properly.   Preparation is a key to success, so clear your cupboard of tempting treats, re-writing your shopping list, or memorise your activity schedule.  Once you have an agenda, you are much more likely to stick to it.

"Set higher standards for your own performance than anyone around you, and it won’t matter whether you have a tough boss or an easy one. It won’t matter whether the competition is pushing you hard, because you’ll be competing with yourself." Rick Pitino Basketball Coach, Author and Speaker

2) Track your progress                                                                         Keep an eye on how well you are doing. If you have completed a week of abstinence, for example, your pride in that accomplishment can help keep you going for another week.  everything from checking money saved, by not buying “goodies” or a regular weigh-in if you are trying to lose weight  can give you the motivation to continue.

Don’t live down to expectations. Go out there and do something remarkable." Wendy Wasserstein

3) Find Inspiration                                                                               The internet is full of inspiring  articles written by people either on the same journey as you are, or who have achieved a similar goal, you just need to find them.  seek out online groups that share your goals and keep reading success stories, as they will keep you on track, if they can do it; You Can!

"People who say that life is not worthwhile are really saying that they themselves have no personal goals which are worthwhile… Get yourself a goal worth working for. Better still, get yourself a project… Always have something ahead of you to ‘look forward to’ – work for and hope for."     Maxwell Maltz 1899-1975, Physician and Writer

4) Reward yourself                                                                                  If you are trying to stop smoking, save the money you would have spent on cigarettes and buy yourself a treat at the end of the month.  you will find the money soon adds up.  If you are dieting allow yourself a cheat meal, that way you can give yourself something to look forward to every week and stop yourself feeling deprived.  If you are taking up a new activity or exercise, get the proper kit, if you look the part you will feel the part.

“Rewards are what you deserve for all the things you have done, will do and are grateful for, no matter what, the same can be said for the more you do for others is an even greater reward.”          Gray Lawrence

5) Post it                                                                                             Little reminders around the house will keep you on track..  It can be easy to forget your exercise schedule when you are stressed or busy, so write it on your calendar or create phone alert to remind you.  #if you are trying to eat healthy, stick a note on the fridge to remind you to stay away from the cheese!

Life Power Tip  What small step, toward that large goal, can you take today? Ninety per cent of any task is starting it. Ten minutes on a task begun soon turns into two hours on that same task. “The man who removes a mountain begins by carrying away small stones.” –Chinese proverb

     6) Get Support                                                                                                    Tell your close friends and family how thy can help you stay  on track, they want you to succeed.  joining a local group of like minded people will also bring support and perhaps even some great new  friends .  If you are on  a social media, post your intentions,there may be others n your friend group who have similar goals.

From The Secret Daily Teachings                                                                    When you find your purpose, it is like your heart has been set alight with passion. You know it absolutely, without any doubt. May the joy be with you, Rhonda Byrne

7) Allow yourself to fail                                                                     To fail is to be human, well do it.  The most important thing to remember if, for example, you succumb to biscuits or have a cheeky glass of wine at dinner, is that tomorrow is a new day.  When you wake up give yourself a pep talk and start again.  You have not failed you have just wobbled!

Failure seems to be nature’s plan for preparing us for great responsibilities.
If everything we attempted in life was achieved with a minimum of effort and came out exactly as planned, how little we would learn — and how boring life would be! And how arrogant we would become if we succeeded at everything we attempted. Failure allows us to develop the essential quality of humility. It is not easy — when you are the person experiencing failure — to accept it philosophically, serene in the knowledge that this is one of life’s great learning experiences. But it is. Nature’s ways are not always easily understood, but they are repetitive and therefore predictable. You can be absolutely certain that when you feel you are being most unfairly tested, you are being prepared for great achievement.  Napoleon Hill

8)  Banish negative thoughts                                                                                   It’s important to believe in yourself if you are trying to break unwanted habits.  You will be surprised how much you can do when you put your mid to it.  think of times you have succeeded in other ways and visualise yourself reaching your goal.  You are stronger than you think.

Negativity
It is essential for you to encourage the positive emotions as dominating forces of your mind, and to discourage — and eliminate — negative emotions. – Napoleon Hill

9) Make lists                                                                                                           Break your goal down into small mile stones and take your eyes of the final prize.  If you are looking to meet new people, make a list of new places to go, and cross them off each week.  Enjoy the journey as much as the achievement.

“A list is only a list until what is written is with a purpose” – Gray Lawrence

10)  Keep it realistic                                                                                             Don’t overwhelm yourself with massive goals. If you are looking for a new partner don’t expect to be married by the end of the year, but focus on increasing your group of friends, you may meet someone special that way.  If you are starting new hobby, remember tat it will take a lot of practice before you are confident enough to really enjoy it. Be kind, don’t expect more of yourself than you would expect of someone you love!

Nothing really worth having is easy to get. The hard-fought battles, the goals won with sacrifice, are the ones that matter." —  Aisha Tyler

Happiness is a state of being, and comes from the inside of you. By the law of attraction you must become on the inside what you want on the outside. You are either choosing to be happy now, or you are making up excuses for not choosing to be happy. But there are no excuses for the law! May the joy be with you, Rhonda Byrne
