Muddy Waters…

Said it all, back in the day…”You can’t spend what you ain’t got, and you can’t lose what you never had”.

So maybe we need to focus on spending what we got…and get it out in the world, because we all have a lot…a massive heap of contributions to offer.

And if we can’t lose what we never had, we must not be preoccupied with losing or loss of any kind.

So let’s spend what we’ve got, and don’t even think about what we never had.

De-select…

…The things you don’t want in your life and Select the things you want…

Put them as part of your dominant thought and you will, over time, create what you have declared.

“Live” Foods

Our bodies are self-healing machines.

You have almost 200K miles of blood vessels that are always under
repair. Research has proved that you have at least 4 “out of control”
areas in your body at any given time that your white blood cells police
and handle.

As a matter of fact, you receive a “Brand New Body” every year or so,
because all of your cells die naturally and get replaced. For instance,
your skin cells die naturally in 28 days and get replaced. Your red
blood cells last around 4 months and white blood cells last from a
couple of days to months, while other organs and tissues have different
“life spans”.

Understanding this, the cells that replace naturally dying cells can
either be stronger or weaker depending on the building blocks we give them.

Our bodies have the incredible ability to turn an apple into heart
tissue, skin cells, etc., and it also has the challenge to do the best
it can to turn a twinkie into those same tissues and cells. You can
either give the body the “live” foods it needs from nature, to do its
job or give it
the chemically based non-natural or “dead” foods and have your body
struggle with the process.

Remember that we have been evolving as a species for a long long time
and our evolution has been fed by “live” foods that we have received from
nature and not from “stuff” we can’t even pronounce…our bodies
don’t really know what to do with “stuff”.

So, the choice is yours to give your body what it needs, and sometimes just
being more mindful is the way to make a change.

You wouldn’t put junk in your Ferrari’s gas tank…and I guarantee you
are worth more than a Ferrari!!!

Agape?

You betcha – there’s more than one kind of Love.

Agape; Unselfish love, brotherly love, mouth wide open, as in wonder, surprise or eagerness.

Sure does smack of the love found within the Culture at Zappos.

Agape can help with anything you’re involved with,  and  it sure helps to “Make the World a Better Place”.

New pair of shoes…

If you are impatient because your life isn’t going the way you want – think again.
I gave a talk to the St Jude’s Ranch for children in Boulder City, and after, since we sell shoes, they asked if it would be possible to donate some shoes for the kids.

They said it would make a big impact on the children and their lives, going to school sporting a brand new pair…you see, the 92 kids come from abusive homes and or are abandoned and most spend their entire lives at the Ranch.

The Ranch is a wonderful loving place which is not the point, the reason the kids are there is the sad part.

So Zappos and the Marketing team came through and helped deliver 92 – $100 gift certificates to the kids – I have a “thank you ” picture in my office from 6 of the most adorable and well mannered kids you have ever met.

So, you having a little bit of trouble in your life – think again.

I was Surprised, back in the day.

My 15 year old daughter is a super bright individual, who gets great grades, plays sports and does cheer, but has a pretty good dose of “being 15 syndrome” – that being… the parents, and most others, have no idea about things and sporting a bad attitude is part of the deal.

But last Thursday night, she came down to talk to my wife and I about her “new revelation”!

She started by saying…”You know, like, when I get up in the morning – I hate it, and like, I tell myself I hate getting up and hate going to school and doing my homework – you know”?

Here’s the surprise: She then said that she finally realized that she does have to get up and go to school and do her homework, so she now says to herself upon awakening, “Wow, what is going to be great about this day…and who will I meet and what will I be able to learn and have fun doing”.

She was so excited that she found out that when she changed her mind, her world changed and her day turns out positive instead of it all being a drag.

I said “Fantastic Sweetie, you have finally understood what I’ve been doing and telling people about for years”! She replied “Huh?…I thought you just coached”?
