The Wise Woman

November 1, 2008

A wise woman who was traveling in the mountains found a precious stone in a stream.

The next day she met another traveler who was hungry, and the wise woman opened her bag to share her food. The hungry traveler saw the precious stone and asked the woman to give it to him. She did so without hesitation.

The traveler left, rejoicing in his good fortune. He knew the stone was worth enough to give him security for a lifetime.

But, a few days later, he came back to return the stone to the wise woman. “I’ve been thinking,” he said. “I know how valuable this stone is, but I give it back in the hope that you can give me something even more precious. Give me what you have within you that enabled you to give me this stone.”

I picked up this story on this inspirational website Yuni. Apparently the story is written by an unknown author.

Sometimes it’s not the wealth you have, but what’s inside you that others need…

Enjoy every day,

Wonderful Wealth

June 8, 2008

Yesterday I came back from Wealth Dynamics Experience and what an experience it was!

I met several new friends, learned interesting lessons and played several insightful games. Roger created magic once more and I also got a chance to step up a couple of times. As a Creator I was asked to come to the front with 2 others and share creative ideas. I also got a chance to answer several questions in front of the public and I was picked for my “Opportunity Knocks” about life hacking. My colorful shirts also attracted lots of people who came to talk to me. Mike Southon agreed to become my Mentor! I also knocked several people of their socks by giving them examples of life hacking tips & tricks. Yihaa, another very successful event!

It’s unbelievable what it’s like when you are in flow… do try this at home 😉

Enjoy every day,

Wealth Dynamics Experience

June 3, 2008

You all know I am XL Life Member, right?

Tomorrow till friday, Roger Hamilton organizes another Wealth Dynamics Experience in London. Of course, I’ll be there 😉

Anyway, I already told you about Wealth Dynamics, but during this event you discover your own personal path of least resistance – the one that fits your natural strengths and weaknesses. Discover what has led to your successes and failures, and how to personally make wealth creation faster, easier, more fulfilling and fun.

Interesting quotes:

“Money doesn’t make money. People make money. And it’s other people who will make your money.”

“Wealth isn’t how much money you have. It’s what you’re left with if you lose all your money.”

So, I’ll be investing in myself the next couple of days. What about you? Did you know that you are your most valuable asset? Isn’t it worth it to invest in yourself? Of course! So, what’s keeping you?
 
Enjoy every day,
