#10 “Pay attention or she’ll rob you!”
“To pay attention,
this is our endless and proper work.”
~ Mary Oliver ~
As David Tait has said, “The true work of a con artist, is to make you believe, you don’t need to pay attention.” To pay attention is one of the key principles to becoming a success. You need to pay attention, to see what no one else sees. You need to pay attention, to hear what other people ignore. You need to pay attention, to be a Success in Life, Love and Business!
The best thing to do is to always compete with yourself
and not to compete with others.
~ Kelly Cutrone ~
The con artist pays attention to you, in order to learn how to gain your confidence. Remember that con artist is actually short for confidence artist, his “art” is in paying attention. The salesman works, more honestly, in much the same way. He pays attention, listening for you to tell him how to sale you his product.
#13 Never give in and never give up.
Anything that works the first time is a miracle!
“Never give in
and never give up.”
~ Hubert H. Humphrey ~
Most things you try won’t work the first time. When what you are doing doesn’t appear to be working, don’t think that means it failed. It likely means it won’t be a success in the method you are trying.

#15 Life’s Not Fair, so Don’t Expect It!
Life isn’t fair, so why play by the rules? You make your own breaks, your own rules, under the law!
Instead, life gives us the chance to make our own fate. To strive, to fight against all odds. I was a street kid, so poor that sometimes days or even weeks would go by without food. Drinking muddy water from the street just to survive is an experience I have that few others understand.

#20 Focus on the Results You Want.
Whatever you really focus on tends to improve, and what you ignore deteriorates.
If you have a business and you want your sales to go up – it is a good idea to find out how sales are daily…
If you have a problem in defects, it would be good to focus on products that are returned, and how to prevent it.

#19 Get out and stay out of your comfort zone.
If we only do what we feel comfortable with, we will never grow.
A baby falls many times in their effort to learn to walk. When we grow in life, it is not comfortable.

Pam, my long time friend (from High School), sent me a message on Facebook and asked…
Do you celebrate Halloween in the Philippines?
I got to thinking that a few people might not know the answer to that, or about the Philippine Holiday Season, so here is what I wrote back…

This morning I was thinking about a couple things I really dislike, perhaps hate! I love you and goodbye. Not it is not that these are so bad, but all around me I see people using the words “I love you!” when they don’t. Any day you can go buy a pillow that says I love you, but it doesn’t.
Search the internet and you will soon find out that “I love you” is often used to ask for money, or sex, on Internet dating sites.
My second pet peeve, or perhaps the first, because I have hated it longer is the way “goodbye” it used. I have a feeling no one should ever say goodbye! So here is some suggestions for better communication in the area of I love you’s and Goodbye’s!

Many people do not understand the concept of Refiner’s Fire, or Cleansing Fire.
Fire Burns! It burns away that which is not pure.
So here are a few Bible verses to look up as you start to make the Refiner’s Fire your heart’s desire.
Everything that can endure the fire, you shall make it go through the fire, and it shall be clean.
My grandmother cooked on a wood burning stove. Anyone who mentioned the heat would likely here grandma say, “If you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen!”
Only later did I understand the spiritual aspects, the heat is what makes us pure.

A lifetime may seem like a long time. However, it does not seem so when we examine it in terms of “miles” and “milestones” rather than years. Only one person in 10,000 lives to see their 100 birthday. Most people die within the Age of the Bonus Mile (right after the Age of the Last Mile).
This is an outline of The Seven Milestones of Life.
I recently received an email that said, “My favorite movie and book is Dinotopia. Unfortunately though, it’s not very popular. Why do you have an interest in it and how did you hear about it?” I answered in this way…
