You can't do everything. But you can do something.

How Much Octane Do You Require?
What's the best breakfast for you? How do you know? Have you experimented to find out if you should eat more or less protein, fat, complex carbohydrates or sugar before going to work? Experiment for peak performance and find out what works best for you.

Make sure your fuel matches your motor!
Some questions for you...
What did you have for breakfast this morning?
How much energy do you have right now?

If you were to experiment with tomorrow's breakfast,
what would you eat differently?

How much time do you allow yourself for this most
important meal of the day?

Managing Time

An Idea For Action...

Do You Think Before You React?

Don't just react automatically to the urgent. If you take the time to choose how and where to spend your time, you will become infinitely more productive.
Take the time to review your prioritized list before you divert your attention to a less important, more urgent task.
Questions to ponder…

If you had last week to do over, how and where would you spend your time differently?

Can you really afford NOT to consider all the alternatives and consequences before you respond?

How can you respond best to the next person who requires an immediate reply?

Thinking Thoughts

That means you!
Fewer things possess more Power than
a Thought.
Because a Thought has the potential
to become something significant.
To solve something meaningful.
And to inspire us to achieve great things.

What makes a Thought so powerful
is that it can be created by anybody.
At anytime.
From anywhere.

That's why Thinking should be encouraged
and nurtured in all its forms.
No mater how small.
Or how impossibly grand.

Because wherever Thinking happens,
Big ideas follow.
Minds become enlightened.
Knowledge grows.
And people discover new ways to unlock their

So start Thinking.

Achieving success with Goals

If you were to ask the experts to select the #1 key to success, most would say...clearly defined goals. Because, without goals your dreams have no chance to become a reality.

The 10 Rules for Achieving Success with Goals.

According to Gary Ryan Blair who is one of the nation's top authors on the topic of goals. Gary teaches that your life will not go according to plan if you don't have a plan.

He says achieving a goal is like opening a combination lock. You need the correct numbers in the correct right, left, right sequence. There are thousands of possible combinations; and if you are aware of the settings but not the sequence, your efforts will prove futile.

The Ten Rules of Goal Setting is the combination that opens the lock of success. Each rule is one piece of the combination; each seamlessly integrates with the other nine; each one counts!

Here are the 10 Rules of Goal Setting.


A question for you -

Have you looked at your goals lately? Maybe it’s time to take some time to review, adjust, revise or rewrite some or all of them. The year is flying by.

It’s OK to do this, so

Just do it!

You have got to read below and say WOW!
Success comes with faith...
I challenge you to Read on.

It's by Dr. Napoleon Hill

FEAR is faith in reverse gear. Fear is a negative belief in something, and belief is the very foundation of faith.

Faith is a positive mental attitude in action. Your mental attitude is the sum total of your thoughts at any given time.

A positive mental attitude has its roots in the spiritual wells of one’s soul. And it is the medium by which adversities may be transmuted into benefits.

Your achievements are limited only by your mental attitude, for it is true that your only real limitations are those which you set up in your own mind.

Keep your mental attitude RIGHT and your future will always be BRIGHT. Success goes to the person whose mental attitude is such that he expects success. And health, wealth, happiness are products of a positive mental attitude.

Your mental attitude, whether it be positive or negative, weaves into your character every thread of your thoughts.

A positive mental attitude is the factor which makes prayer pay off. Keep your mental attitude positive and everything else will take care of itself in your favor.

People who work with a positive mental attitude are constantly doing the “impossible.”

The difference between mediocrity and genius is mainly a question of mental attitude. If you don’t like what life has given you, change your mental attitude and attract something else more to your liking! And remember that not all of the wisdom of the sages and the ages can help the person who quits trying to help himself.

Remember that the Creator has so made us that our strength grows out of our struggles, and we are no bigger than the circumstances which we permit to frighten or worry us.

Faith is a state of mind which has been called “the mainspring of the soul,” through which your aims, desires and plans may be translated into their physical equivalents.

Besides a positive mental attitude, free from negatives such as envy, hatred, jealousy and fear, applied faith has other fundamentals.

These include: A definiteness of purpose, supported by personal initiative or action . . . Recognition of the fact that every adversity carries with it the seed of an equivalent benefit; that temporary defeat is not failure until it has been accepted by you as such . . . The habit of expressing gratitude for one’s blessings daily, in the form of a prayer.

To create a mental attitude favorable for the expression of applied faith, follow these instructions:

1. Know what you want and determine what you will give in return for it.
2. When you affirm the object of your prayers, let your imagination see yourself already in possession of it.
3. Keep your mind open for guidance from within, and when you are inspired by “hunches”—take heed of them immediately, for they may bring you the answer you seek.
4. When you are overtaken by defeat, as you may be many times, remember that man’s faith is often tested in many ways, and defeat may be only your testing time; therefore, accept defeat only as an inspiration for greater effort.

There is no such reality as a “blanket” faith. You must have a definite objective, purpose, or desire before you can enjoy the benefits of applied faith. Faith is guidance from within which will not bring you that which you seek, but it will show you the path by which you may go after that which you desire.

Think about it.

Actual J4 writes...

You can change the world.

It's simple and anyone can do it.

Love = Peace

It's a simple formula and is not reversible. Peace does not necessarily equal Love but Love will equal and achieve Peace. One thing leads to the other through the cause and effect principle.

Many people have forgotten that the foundation and core of every major religion is to Love your neighbor as you would want your neighbor to Love you. This is stated in all major religions in different forms but is the basis for each major religion.

There needs to be a shift in the worlds consciousness to Love. This could take place with Gods help all at once one day but more likely and realistically will take place over a period of time. The way to achieve this shift is to teach our children from a very young age not only religion but the basis for that religion. Love and to Love ones fellow man as one would want to be loved. These children will continue to teach their children and so on through generations and the Love will change the world to a peaceful one. Sounds too simple but it will work over time.

There may be many religions but all don't seem to realize that they are worshiping one God. If God is infinite then there can be only one infinite. As any philosopher, mathematician and even many theologians would tell you, you can't have anymore than one infinite, it is a logical impossibility. If God is omnipresent, omnipotent, and omniscient how could there be more than one God competing in all these areas. Only one God could achieve this. Two or more would not work. One God and one principle from that God for all in all religions. Love and Love of your fellow man as you would want to be loved.

Unfortunately war must sometimes be waged to achieve and bring about Peace. Had we not all waged war against Hitler and won we would be living in a much less peaceful world today. War was necessary to achieve Peace. In today's world we face a threat to Peace from religious radicals who have warped their religious views into violence and hatred and forgotten the Love that founded and is the basis for all religions threatening the Peace and security of the world. Unfortunately war it seems must once again be waged to achieve Peace. Lack of Love is the enemy of Peace.

Love is like a rose without thorns. Through Love we can remove some or all of the thorns and achieve Peace.

You may say It sounds like it's all too simple and the truth is that It is. It's just that simple. Teach and practice Love and Love of your neighbor and eventually over time the world will have Peace on Earth.

You can change the world.

The Right to be a leader.

Excerpt from "The Right to Lead", by John Maxwell

A good student of leadership can learn lessons almost anywhere. Recently I received this letter from a friend who discovered what it takes to lead up near the top of the world:

Dear John,

In August 1999, my wife, Minnietta, and I vacationed with some friends who live in a remote part of Alaska near Denali Park. One day they took us to visit their neighbor, Jeff King, who lives a few miles away. Jeff is a sled-dog racer who has won the 1,000-mile Iditarod race from Anchorage to Nome, Alaska, three times (1993, 1996 and 1998). It was a joy to experience Jeff's love and passion for his seventy huskies and his admiration for their maturity, strength, and courage.

Jeff told us that when he starts the Iditarod race, he starts with sixteen dogs and rotates the lead dog frequently to give all the dogs a chance to lead since every one of them wants to be the lead dog. Eventually, he finds the dog that is the real leader because it is a dog that is energetic and persistent in leading, and that dog becomes the leader of the pack. It is chosen as the leader because it leads; it is able to motivate the other dogs to follow by its own energy and enthusiasm.

Jeff told us that in 1996, the lead dog was a two-and-a-half-year old female named Jenna. That was very unusual since there were only two females in the pack. She was so young, and she was smaller than all the male dogs. But Jeff said with emotion, "She was our leader; when a blizzard came, she didn't give up. She kept barking and running even when the snow was over her head and inspired us all to keep going. Even at her young age, she has the mental maturity of a leader." When Jeff was congratulated for winning the 1998 Iditarod, he lifted up his lead dog and said, "Here is the leader who won the race for us."

John, I found this story very inspiring and hope you might be able to use it. Grace and peace.

Business Planning for 2010?

Laura Posey,
Vice President and Co-Founder of Dancing Elephants Achievement Group writes...

Should You Spend Time This Year On A Plan?

That seems like a silly question perhaps, but so many business people don’t bother really planning their year (much less their entire business) that I have to ask.

Here a few of my best reasons to make time in the next two weeks to get a plan done.

Focus Changes Everything
Having a plan forces you to decide where to focus your time, energy and money in the coming year. Focus is the force that drives all things to greater power and success. An unfocused stream of light creates a gentle illumination while a focused stream creates a laser beam capable of cutting through any obstacle. An unfocused team of rowers wanders around the water, while a focused team can conquer any ocean.

Writing Goals Down Changes Your Brain
For years, scientists have known that the act of writing things down changes the way they are stored in your brain. That’s why you had to spend so much time in school writing out your multiplication tables, etc. Writing your plan plants seeds in your subconscious that can dramatically increase your likelihood of achieving. Even if you fall short of your ultimate goals, you’ll likely far exceed what you would have accomplished had you not bothered to plan.

Planning Doesn’t Have To Be Hard
When I ask people why they don’t have a plan, many tell me they don’t have time to write a huge plan and, even if they did, they probably wouldn’t use it anyway. It is just to easy to go back to winging it as real life deviates from what you planned. Proper planning doesn’t have to take tons of time or result in the death of a hundred trees. You can create a complete annual plan in just 20 minutes and use only one sheet of paper. Best of all, the plan you create will be flexible enough to accommodate changes in the economy and your business as the year progresses. A plan shouldn’t be a prison but rather guardrails on the highway to your goals.
